KEYLESS CHUCK
Tighten Release The drill has a keyless chuck to tighten or release drill bits in the chuck jaws. The arrows on the
chuck indicate the direction in which to rotate the chuck body in order to tighten or release the
chuck jaws on the drill bit.
WARNING! Do not hold the chuck body with one hand and use the power of the drill
to tighten the chuck jaws on the drill bit. The chuck body could slip in your hand, or
your hand could slip and come in contact with the rotating bit. This could cause an
accident resulting in serious personal injury.
11 ADJUSTABLE TORQUE CLUTCH
The torque clutch can be adjusted to 19+1 different settings. The higher the torque setting, the
more force the drill produces.
When using the drill for different driving applications, it is necessary to increase or decrease the
torque in order to help prevent the possibility of damaging screw heads, threads, workpiece, etc.
Adjust the torque by rotating the torque-adjustment ring.
The proper setting depends on the job and the type of bit, fastener, and material you will be using.
In general, use greater torque for larger screwed, but if the torque is too high, the screws may be
damaged or broken.
For delicate operations, such as removing a partially stripped screw, use a low torque setting. For
operations such as drilling into hardwood, use a higher torque setting.
CAUTION: do not change the torque setting when the tool is running.
DRILL MODE
Select drill mode for drilling and other heavy duty applications.
To select drill mode, rotate the torque adjustment ring until the icon aligns with the torque
indicator and clicks into position.

switch is depressed. This provides additional light on the surface of the workpiece for operation
in lower-light areas. The LED worklight will turn off when the trigger switch is released.
INSTALLING BITS
1. Lock the trigger switch by placing the direction of rotation selector in the OFF (center)
position.
2. Open or close the chuck jaws to a point where the opening is slightly larger than the bit size
you intend to use.
3. Insert a drill bit.
4. Tighten the chuck jaws securely on the bit.
REMOVING BITS
1. Lock the trigger switch by placing the direction of rotation selector in the OFF (center)
position.
2. Open the chuck jaws.
12 NOTE: Rotate the chuck body in the direction of the arrow marked OPEN to close the chuck
jaws. Do not use a wrench to tighten or loosen the chuck jaws.
3. Remove the drill bit.
WARNING! Make sure to insert the drill bit straight into the chuck jaws. Do not insert
the drill bit into the chuck jaws at an angle then tighten. This could cause the drill bit to
be ejected from the drill, resulting in possible serious personal injury or damage to the
chuck.
DRILLING
1. Check the direction of rotation selector for the correct setting (forward or reverse).
2. Secure the material to be drilled in a vise or with clamps to keep it from turning as the drill
bit rotates.
3. Hold the drill firmly and place the bit at the point to be drilled.
4. Depress the trigger switch to start the drill.
5. Move the drill bit into 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. When drilling hard, smooth surfaces, use a center punch to mark the desired location of the
hole.
7. This will prevent the drill bit from slipping off-center as the hole is started.
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.
WARNING! 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.
WOOD DRILLING
For maximum performance, use high speed steel or brad point bits for wood drilling.
1. Begin drilling at a very low speed to prevent the bit from slipping off the starting point.
2. Increase speed as the drill bit bites into the material.
3. 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.
METAL DRILLING
For maximum performance, use high speed steel bits for metal or steel drilling.
1. When 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.
13 2. Begin drilling at a very low speed to prevent the bit from slipping off the starting point.
3. Maintain a speed and pressure which allows cutting without overheating the bit. Applying
too much pressure will:
-Overheat the drill.
-Wear the bearings.
-Bend or burn bits.
-Produce off-center or irregular-shaped holes.
MASONRY DRILLING
For maximum performance, use carbide-tipped masonry bits when drilling holes in brick, tile,
concrete, etc.
Maintain a speed and pressure which allows cutting without overheating the bit or drill.
Applying too much pressure will:
-Overheat the drill.
-Wear the bearings.
-Bend or burn bits.
-Produce off-center or irregular-shaped holes.
Apply light pressure and medium speed for best results in brick.
Apply additional pressure for hard materials such as concrete.
When drilling holes in tile, practice on a scrap piece to determine the best speed and pressure.
Begin drilling at a very low speed to prevent the bit from slipping off the starting point.
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.
WARNING! To ensure safety and reliability, all repairs should be performed by a
qualified service technician at Authorized Service Center.
