2) ELECTRICAL SAFETY
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify
the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with
earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and
matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces
such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There
is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or
grounded.
c)Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric
shock.
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying,
pulling or unplugging the power tool. Keep cord away
from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damaged or
entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
e) When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension
cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for
outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
f) If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable,
use a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protected
supply. Use of a GFCI reduces the risk of electric shock.

power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
Definitions: Safety Guidelines
English
3) PERSONAL SAFETY
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common
sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power
tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs,
alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while
operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
b)Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye
protection. Protective equipment such as dust mask, nonskid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for
appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in
the off position before connecting to power source and/
or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying
power tools with your finger on the switch or energizing power
tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the
power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a rotating
part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at
all times. This enables better control of the power tool in
unexpected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry.
Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving
parts. Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be caught in
moving parts.
g)If devices are provided for the connection of dust
extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are
connected and properly used. Use of dust collection can
reduce dust-related hazards.
4) POWER TOOL USE AND CARE
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool
for your application. The correct power tool will do the job
better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it
on and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled with the
switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
c) Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the
battery pack from the power tool before making any
adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power
tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and
do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or
these instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools
are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding
of moving parts, breakage of parts and any other
condition that may affect the power tool’s operation. If
damaged, have the power tool repaired before use. Many
accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained
cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and
are easier to control.
g)Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits, etc. in
accordance with these instructions, taking into account
the working conditions and the work to be performed.
Use of the power tool for operations different from those
intended could result in a hazardous situation.

person using only identical replacement parts. This will
ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Additional Specific Safety Rules
• Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces when
performing an operation where the fastener may contact
hidden wiring. Fasteners contacting a “live” wire may make
exposed metal parts of the power tool “live” and could give the
operator an electric shock.
• Use clamps or other practical way to secure and support
the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the work by hand
or against your body is unstable and may lead to loss of control.
• Wear safety goggles or other eye protection. Hammering and
drilling operations cause chips to fly. Flying particles can cause
permanent eye damage.

Material Regulations (HMR) actually prohibit transporting batteries in
commerce or on airplanes (e.g., packed in suitcases and carry-on
luggage) UNLESS they are properly protected from short circuits. So
when transporting individual battery packs, make sure that the battery
terminals are protected and well insulated from materials that could
contact them and cause a short circuit.
WARNING: Burn hazard. Battery liquid may be flammable if
exposed to spark or flame.
The RBRC™ (Rechargeable Battery Recycling
Corporation) Seal on the nickel cadmium, nickel metal
hydride or lithium ion batteries (or battery packs)
indicate that the costs to recycle these batteries (or
battery packs) at the end of their useful life have already
been paid by DeWALT. In some areas, it is illegal to
place spent nickel cadmium, nickel metal hydride or lithium ion
batteries in the trash or municipal solid waste stream and the RBRC
program provides an environmentally conscious alternative.
RBRC™, in cooperation with DeWALT and other battery users, has
established programs in the United States and Canada to facilitate
the collection of spent nickel cadmium, nickel metal hydride or lithium
ion batteries. Help protect our environment and conserve natural
resources by returning the spent nickel cadmium, nickel metal hydride
or lithium ion batteries to an authorized DeWALT service center or
to your local retailer for recycling. You may also contact your local

• An extension cord must have adequate wire size (AWG
or American Wire Gauge) for safety. The smaller the gauge
number of the wire, the greater the capacity of the cable, that is,
16 gauge has more capacity than 18 gauge. An undersized cord
will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and
overheating. When using more than one extension to make up the
total length, be sure each individual extension contains at least the
minimum wire size. The following table shows the correct size to
use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If in
doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The lower the gauge number,
the heavier the cord.
WARNING: Shock hazard. Do not allow any liquid to get inside the
charger. Electric shock may result.
CAUTION: Burn hazard. To reduce the risk of injury, charge only
DeWALT rechargeable battery packs. Other types of batteries may
overheat and burst resulting in personal injury and property damage.

NOTE: The thru-hole (Fig. 8) allows an O-ring with retaining pin
or a 1-piece retaining pin to be used to help secure sockets and
accessories to the tool.
CAUTION: Ensure fastener and/or system will withstand the level
of torque generated by the tool. Excessive torque may cause
breakage and possible personal injury.
1.Place the accessory on the fastener head. Keep the tool pointed
straight at the fastener.
2.Press switch to start operation. Release switch to stop operation.
Always check torque with a torque wrench, as the fastening
torque is affected by many factors including the following:
• Voltage: Low voltage, due to a nearly discharged battery, will
reduce fastening torque.
• Accessory size: Failure to use the correct accessory size will
cause a reduction in fastening torque.
• Bolt size: Larger bolt diameters generally require higher
fastening torque. Fastening torque will also vary according to
length, grade, and torque coefficient.

MAINTENANCE
• Bolt: Ensure that all threads are free of rust and other debris to
allow proper fastening torque.
• Material: The type of material and surface finish of the material
will affect fastening torque.
• Fastening time: Longer fasten­ing time results in increased
fastening torque. Using a longer fastening time than recom­
mended could cause the fasteners to be overstressed,
stripped or damaged.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of serious personal injury,
place the forward/reverse button in the lock-off position
or turn tool off and disconnect battery pack before making
any adjustments or removing/installing attachments or
accessories. An accidental start-up can cause injury.
Cleaning
WARNING: Blow dirt and dust out of all air vents with clean, dry air
at least once a week. To minimize the risk of eye injury, always wear
ANSI Z87.1 approved eye protection when performing this.
