GENERAL SAFETY RULES
Personal Safety
WARNING: Read and understand all instructions.
Failure to follow all instructions listed below, may
result in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal
injury.
■
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Work Area
■
Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches and dark areas invite accidents.
■
Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable
liquids, gases, or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
■
■
■
Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you
to lose control.
■
Electrical Safety
■
■
■
Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry
the charger. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp
edges, or moving parts. Replace damaged cords
immediately. Damaged cords may create a fire.
■
A battery operated tool with integral batteries or a
separate battery pack must be recharged only with
the specified charger for the battery. A charger that
may be suitable for one type of battery may create a
risk of fire when used with another battery.
Use battery operated tool only with specifically
designated battery pack. Use of any other batteries
may create a risk of fire. Use only with battery pack
listed.
■

Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use
common sense when operating a power tool. Do
not use tool while tired or under the influence of
drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious
personal injury.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your hair, clothing,
and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes,
jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is in the
locked or off position before inserting battery
pack. Carrying tools with your finger on the switch or
inserting the battery pack into a tool with the switch on,
invites accidents.
Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning the tool on. A wrench or a key that is left attached
to a rotating part of the tool may result in personal
injury.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing and balance enable
better control of the tool in unexpected situations.
Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
GENERAL SAFETY RULES
■
Tool Use and Care
■
■
■
■
■
■
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.
Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your
application. The correct tool will do the job better and
safer at the rate for which it is designed.
Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off.
A tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is
dangerous and must be repaired.
Disconnect battery pack from tool or place the switch
in the locked or off position before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing the tool. Such
preventive safety measures reduce risk of starting the tool
accidentally.
Store idle tools out of reach of children and other
untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in the hands
of untrained users.
When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from
other metal objects like: paper clips, coins, keys,
nails, screws, or other small metal objects that can
make a connection from one terminal to another.
Shorting the battery terminals together may cause
sparks, burns, or a fire.
■
■
Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp
and clean. Properly maintained tools, with sharp
cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to
control.
Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts, and any other condition that may
affect the tool's operation. If damaged, have the tool
serviced before using. Many accidents are caused by
poorly maintained tools.
Use only accessories that are recommended by
the manufacturer for your model. Accessories that
may be suitable for one tool, may create a risk of injury
when used on another tool.
Service
■
■
Tool service must be performed only by qualified
repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed
by unqualified personnel could result in a risk of injury.
When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement parts. Follow instructions in the Maintenance
section of this manual. Use of unauthorized parts or
failure to follow Maintenance Instructions may create a
risk of shock or injury.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES AND/OR SYMBOLS
Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the cutting tool may contact
hidden wiring. Contact with a "live" wire will make exposed metal parts of the tool "live" and shock the operator.
Additional Rules For Safe Operation
■
■
Know your power tool. Read operator's manual
carefully. Learn its applications and limitations, as
well as the specific potential hazards related to
this tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock, fire, or serious injury.
Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure to
use one heavy enough to carry the current your
product will draw. A wire gage size (A.W.G.) of at
least 16 is recommended for an extension cord
100 feet or less in length. A cord exceeding 100
feet is not recommended. If in doubt, use the next
heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the
heavier the cord. An undersized cord will cause a
drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and
overheating.

Under extreme continuous use, the batteries in your
battery pack will become hot. You should let a hot battery
pack cool down for approximately 1 hour before attempting to recharge. When the battery pack becomes discharged and is hot, this will cause the red light on your
battery charger to flash. When battery pack cools down,
red light will glow continuously indicating fast charging
mode, 1 hour charge time. Once the battery pack cools
down, it will recharge battery pack in fast charging mode
as normal.
Note: This situation only occurs when extreme continuous
use of your drill causes the batteries to become hot. It
does not occur under normal circumstances. Refer to
"CHARGING BATTERY PACK" for normal recharging of
batteries. If the charger does not charge your battery pack
under normal circumstances, return both the battery pack
and charger to your nearest Sears repair center for
electrical check.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR RECHARGING
HOT BATTERIES
TO
ATTACH
GROOVES
If after one hour red light is still flashing, this indicates a
defective battery pack and should be replaced.
Green light on indicates battery pack is fully charged
and slow charging to maintain battery pack.
Yellow light on and red light flashing indicates defective
battery pack. Return battery pack to your nearest Sears
Repair Center for checking or replacing.
When your battery pack becomes fully charged, the red light
will turn OFF and the green light will turn ON.
After normal usage, 1 hour of charging time is required to be
fully charged. A minimum charge time of 1-1/2 hours is
required to recharge a completely discharged tool.
The battery pack will become slightly warm to the touch while
charging. This is normal and does not indicate a problem.
Do not place charger in an area of extreme heat or
cold. It will work best at normal room temperature.
When the batteries become fully charged, unplug your
charger from power supply and remove the battery
pack.
Fig. 7
■ Red light should turn on. Red light indicates fast
charging mode.
If red light is flashing, this indicates battery pack is
deeply discharged or hot.
If battery pack is hot, red light should become steady
after battery pack has cooled down.
If battery pack is deeply discharged, red light should
become steady after voltage has increased, normally
within 60 minutes.

drill. It can be used to keep drill bits level during most
drilling operations.

When drilling hard smooth surfaces use a center punch to
mark desired hole location. This will prevent the drill bit
from slipping off center as the hole is started. However,
the low speed feature allows starting holes without center
punching if desired. To accomplish this, simply operate
your drill at a low speed until the hole is started.
The material to be drilled should be secured in a vise or
with clamps to keep it from turning as the drill bit rotates.
Hold tool firmly and place the bit at the point to be drilled.
Depress the switch trigger to start tool.
Move the drill bit into the workpiece applying only enough
pressure to keep the bit cutting. Do not force or apply side
pressure to elongate a hole.

WARNING: Be prepared for binding or bit
breakthrough. When these situations occur, drill has
a tendency to grab and kick opposite to the direction
of rotation and could cause loss of control when
breaking through material. If not prepared, this loss
of control can result in possible serious injury.
Fig. 14
When drilling metals, use a 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.
If the bit jams in workpiece or if the drill stalls, release
switch trigger immediately. Remove the bit from the
workpiece and determine the reason for jamming.
