    Pertains to all types of circular saws. Circular saws hereinafter will be referred to as saws.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    IEC 60745-2-5:2010 deals with the safety of hand-held motor-operated or magnetically driven electric tools, specific requirements for all types of circular saws. The rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase a.c. or d.c., and 440 V for three-phase a.c. tools. This standard does not apply to saws used with abrasive wheels. The principal changes in this edition as compared with the fourth edition are as follows:
    - clause 17 introduction of endurance tests in practical use for the guards of all types of saws;
    - clause 19 clarifications and editorial improvements in respect to the guarding;
    - annex M editorial improvements.

    This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60745-1:2006.
