you must drive a screw where hidden wire may
be present, always hold tool by insulated gripping
surfaces (handle) when performing the operation to
prevent a shock to the operator, as seen in figure 10.

The battery pack for this tool is equipped with nickelcadmium rechargeable batteries. Length of service from
each charging will depend on the type of work you are
doing.

properly.
The batteries in this tool have been designed to provide
maximum trouble-free life. However, like all batteries, they
will eventually wear out. Do not disassemble battery pack
and attempt to replace the batteries. Handling of these
batteries, especially when wearing rings and jewelry, could
result in a serious burn.
This product contains nickel-cadmium
batteries. Local, state or federal
laws may prohibit disposal of nickelcadmium batteries in ordinary trash.
Consult your local waste authority for information
regarding available recycling and/or disposal options.
To obtain the longest possible battery life, we suggest the

terminals with heavy-duty adhesive tape. Do not
attempt to destroy or disassemble battery pack or
remove any of its components. Nickel-cadmium
batteries must be recycled or disposed of properly.
Also, never touch both terminals with metal objects
and/or body parts as short circuit may result. Keep
away from children. Failure to comply with these
warnings could result in fire and/or serious injury.

fully charged and ready for use.
For battery pack storage longer than 30 days:
