OPERATION
BATTERY PROTECTION
To protect the battery from damage and prolong its life, the battery pack’s
circuitry will turn off the battery pack if it becomes overloaded or if the
temperature becomes too high during use. This may happen in extremely high
torque, binding and stalling situations. The battery pack will begin normal
operation when it cools down.
NOTICE: A significantly reduced run time after fully charging the battery pack
indicates that the batteries are near the end of their usable life and must be
replaced.
COLD WEATHER OPERATION
When the battery pack is very cold, it may “pulse” for the first minute of use to
warm itself. Put the battery pack on a tool and use the tool in a light application.
After about a minute, the battery pack will have warmed itself and will operate
normally.
WHEN TO CHARGE THE BATTERY PACK
The Lithium-Ion battery can be charged at any time and will not develop a
“memory” when charged after only a partial discharge. It is not necessary to
run down the battery pack charge before recharging. Remove the battery pack
from the tool when convenient for you and your job.
Y ou can “top-off” your battery pack’s charge before starting a big job or long
period of use.
ue to Lithium-Ion’s fade-free properties, the only time it is necessary to
D
charge the Lithium- Ion battery pack is when the pack has reached the end
of its charge. To signal the end of charge, power to the tool will drop quickly.

USING THE AUXILIARY HANDLE ASSEMBLY
WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury, always use the auxiliary handle
when operating and hold tool with both hands to maximize control.
The auxiliary handle must be tightened sufficiently to resist the twisting
action of the tool if the bit binds or stalls. Be sure to grip the side handle at
the far end to control the tool during a stall.
The auxiliary handle can be attached to either side for left- or right-hand use.
GENERAL DRILLING (Fig. 12)

1. C
heck the direction of rotation
selector for the correct setting
(forward or reverse).
2. S
ecure the material to be drilled in a
vise or with clamps to keep it from
turning as the drill bit rotates.
3. H
old the drill firmly and place the bit
at the point to be drilled.
4. D
epress the trigger switch to start the drill.
5. M
ove the drill bit to contact the workpiece, applying only enough pressure
to keep the bit cutting. Do not force the drill or apply side pressure to
elongate a hole. Let the tool do the work.
6. W
hen drilling hard, smooth surfaces, use a center punch to mark the
desired location of the hole. This will prevent the drill bit from slipping offcenter as the hole is started.
7. W
hen drilling metals, use light oil on the drill bit to keep it from overheating.
The oil will prolong the life of the bit and increase the drilling action.
8. If the bit jams in the workpiece or if the drill stalls, stop the tool
immediately. Remove the bit from the workpiece and determine the
reason for jamming.
NOTICE: This drill is equipped with an electric brake. When the brake is
functioning properly, sparks may be visible through the vent slots in the
housing. This is normal and is the action of the brake.
DRILLING MODE OPERATION
1. S
elect the desired speed to match the planned operation.
19
2. F or wood drilling, use twist bits, spade bits, power auger bits or hole saws.
Begin drilling at a very low speed to prevent the bit from slipping off the
starting point and increase the speed as the drill bit bites into the material.
When drilling “through” holes, place a block of wood behind the workpiece to
prevent ragged or splintered edges on the back side of the hole.
3. For metal drilling, use high speed steel twist drill bits. Begin drilling at a very
low speed to prevent the bit from slipping off the starting point. Maintain a
speed and pressure which allows cutting without overheating the bit. Use
light oil on the drill bit to keep it from overheating; the oil will prolong the
life of the bit and increase the drilling action.
4. If the drill stalls, it is usually because it is being overloaded. Release trigger
switch immediately, remove drill bit from work, and determine cause of stalling.
5. K
eep the motor running when pulling the bit back out of drilled hole. This
will prevent jamming.
HAMMER DRILLING MODE OPERATION
1. When hammer drilling, use just enough force on the hammer to keep it from
bouncing excessively. Too much force will cause slower drilling speeds,
overheating and a lower drilling rate.
2. D
o not exert side pressure on the bit when drilling, as this will cause
clogging of the bit flutes and reduced drilling speed.
3. If the hammer speed starts to drop off when drilling deep holes, pull the bit
partially out of the hole with the tool still running to help clear debris from
the hole.
4. F or masonry, use carbide-tipped bit or masonry bits. A smooth, even flow of
dust indicates the proper drilling rate.
WARNING: Always wear safety goggles or safety glasses with side shields
during power tool operation or when blowing dust. If operation is dusty, also wear
a dust mask.
SCREWDRIVER OPERATION
1. S
elect the desired speed/torque range to match the planned operation.
2. Attach the desired fastener accessory into the chuck.
3. M
ake a few practice runs in scrap piece before working.
