Part 3-9: Particular requirements for transportable mitre saws
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 62841-3-9 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 116:

Safety of motor-operated electric tools.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2014. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:
a) Clause 1: Scope: increase of the maximum saw blade diameter to 410 mm;

b) Corrigendum 1 and Corrigendum 2 of the first edition have been incorporated in this

second edition.

The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
116/430/FDIS 116/442/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this International Standard can be found in

the report on voting indicated in the above table.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

This Part 3-9 is to be used in conjunction with the IEC 62841-1:2014.

This Part 3-9 supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 62841-1, so as to

convert it into the IEC Standard: Particular requirements for transportable mitre saws.

Where a particular subclause of Part 1 is not mentioned in this Part 3-9, that subclause

applies as far as reasonable. Where this standard states “addition”, “modification” or

“replacement”, the relevant text in Part 1 is to be adapted accordingly.
The following print types are used:
– requirements: in roman type;
– test specifications: in italic type;
– notes: in small roman type.
The terms defined in Clause 3 are printed in bold typeface.

Subclauses, notes and figures which are additional to those in Part 1 are numbered starting

from 101.

A list of all parts of the IEC 62841 series, under the general title: Electric motor-operated

hand-held tools, transportable tools and lawn and garden machinery – Safety, can be found

on the IEC website.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until

the stability date indicated on the IEC web site under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data

related to the specific publication. At this date, the publication will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.

NOTE The attention of National Committees is drawn to the fact that equipment manufacturers and testing

organizations may need a transitional period following publication of a new, amended or revised IEC publication in

which to make products in accordance with the new requirements and to equip themselves for conducting new or

revised tests.

It is the recommendation of the committee that the content of this publication be adopted for implementation

nationally not earlier than 36 months from the date of publication.

IMPORTANT – The 'colour inside' logo on the cover page of this publication indicates

that it contains colours which are considered to be useful for the correct

understanding of its contents. Users should therefore print this document using a

colour printer.

8.14.1.101 Safety instructions for mitre saws

a) Mitre saws are intended to cut wood or wood-like products, they cannot be used

with abrasive cut-off wheels for cutting ferrous material such as bars, rods, studs,

etc. Abrasive dust causes moving parts such as the lower guard to jam. Sparks from

abrasive cutting will burn the lower guard, the kerf insert and other plastic parts.

b) Use clamps to support the workpiece whenever possible. If supporting the
workpiece by hand, you must always keep your hand at least 100 mm from either

side of the saw blade. Do not use this saw to cut pieces that are too small to be

securely clamped or held by hand. If your hand is placed too close to the saw blade,
