vibration may cause temporary or
permanent physical injury, particularly
to the hands, arms and shoulders. To
reduce the risk of vibration-related
injury:
1.
Anyone using vibrating tools regularly or for an extended period should
first be examined by a doctor and
then have regular medical checkups to ensure medical problems are
not being caused or worsened from
use. Pregnant women or people
who have impaired blood circulation
to the hand, past hand injuries, nervous system disorders, diabetes, or
Raynaud’s Disease should not use
this tool. If you feel any medical or
physical symptoms related to vibration (such as tingling, numbness, and
white or blue fingers), seek medical
advice as soon as possible.
2.

Grounding
To prevent
electric shock
and death from
incorrect grounding
wire connection:
Check with a qualified
electrician if you are in doubt
as to whether the outlet is
properly grounded. Do not
modify the power cord plug
provided with the tool. Never
remove the grounding prong
from the plug. Do not use the
tool if the power cord or plug
is damaged. If damaged, have
it repaired by a service facility
before use. If the plug will not
fit the outlet, have a proper
outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.
Grounded Tools: Tools with Three
Prong Plugs
1.
Tools marked with “Grounding Required” have a three wire cord and
three prong grounding plug. The
plug must be connected to a properly
grounded outlet. If the tool should

Plug.)
2.
The grounding prong in the plug is
connected through the green wire inside the cord to the grounding system
in the tool. The green wire in the cord 1.
must be the only wire connected to
the tool’s grounding system and must
never be attached to an electrically
“live” terminal. (See 3-Prong Plug
2.
and Outlet.)
The tool must be plugged into an
appropriate outlet, properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all
codes and ordinances. The plug and
outlet should look like those in the
preceding illustration. (See 3-Prong
Plug and Outlet.)
Tools marked “Double Insulated” do
not require grounding. They have
a special double insulation system
which satisfies OSHA requirements
and complies with the applicable
standards of Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., the Canadian Standard
Association, and the National Electri-
SKU 98544
Extension Cords
Grounded tools require a three wire
extension cord. Double Insulated
tools can use either a two or three
wire extension cord.
As the distance from the supply outlet
increases, you must use a heavier
gauge extension cord. Using extension cords with inadequately sized
wire causes a serious drop in voltage,
resulting in loss of power and possible tool damage.
(See Table A.)
3.
The smaller the gauge number of the
wire, the greater the capacity of the
cord. For example, a 14 gauge cord
can carry a higher current than a 16
gauge cord. (See Table A.)
4.
When using more than one extension cord to make up the total length,
make sure each cord contains at
least the minimum wire size required.
(See Table A.)
5.
If you are using one extension cord
for more than one tool, add the
nameplate amperes and use the sum
to determine the required minimum
cord size. (See Table A.)
6.
If you are using an extension cord
outdoors, make sure it is marked with
the suffix “W-A” (“W” in Canada) to
indicate it is acceptable for outdoor
use.
Double Insulated Tools: Tools
with Two Prong Plugs
1.
Double insulated tools may be used
in either of the 120 volt outlets shown
in the preceding illustration. (See
Outlets for 2-Prong Plug.)
For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353.

8.
Make sure the extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition. Always replace a damaged
extension cord or have it repaired by
a qualified electrician before using it.
Protect the extension cords from
sharp objects, excessive heat, and
damp or wet areas.

CAUTION: Never change Torque Setting while drill is still rotating, as
this can damage the Drill/Driver.
For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353.
Page 11
4.
Decide on which setting to choose:
Torque Settings:
Use one of the 22 settings (1-23) for
screwdriver usage.
Use the Drill Bit setting for use with
drill bits.
The different sizes of Bit Adapters
(62) are an indication of how much
torque the Cordless Drill/Driver will
apply to the bit before the clutch slips,
allowing the bit to stop and helping
to prevent damage to the screw, bit,
or workpiece. The larger the screw,
the more torque is applied before the
clutch slips. Unless when drilling,
always start with a lower number to
help prevent damage. This Cordless
Drill/Driver also has torque settings
between the screws to allow a greater range of control.
Drill Setting (
):
This setting essentially prevents the
clutch from slipping entirely. It is designed for drilling, but is not advised
for using a screwdriver bit because it
offers no protection against stripping
the head or splitting the wood.
5.
To use the screwdriver function, insert the Bit Adapter into the Chuck as
detailed in Step 1. Insert the required
screwdriver bit into the Bit Adapter.
6.
Set the drilling torque by turning the
Torque Control (6) so that it lines up
with the Arrow on the center top of
the Cordless Drill/Driver.
7.
When driving screws, start with a
lower torque setting.
8.
When drilling in light gauge metal or
wood, use a wooden block to back up
SKU 98544
the material and prevent damage to
the workpiece.
9.
Mark the center of the hole to be
drilled with a center punch (not included) to give a Drill Bit a starting
point and to prevent it from “walking”.
10. Lubricate the Drill Bit with cutting oil
(not included) when drilling iron or
steel. Use a coolant (not included)
when drilling nonferrous metals such
as copper, brass, or aluminum.
11. Insert the fully charged Battery Pack
into the Handle of the Drill/Driver.
12. The Direction Lever (38) allows you
to change the rotational direction of
the Drill/Driver. For a clockwise rotation, move the Lever forward. For a
counterclockwise rotation, move the
Lever back. The center position locks
the Trigger (61), to prevent the Drill/
Driver from operating.
CAUTION: Never attempt to change
rotational direction while Chuck is
rotating.
13. Hold the Cordless Drill/Driver firmly
with both hands, as torque from the
Motor can cause the tool to twist.
14. Operate Drill by squeezing Trigger.
The speed of can be controlled by
varying the pressure on the Trigger.
15. If the clutch starts slipping before the
screw is in all the way, stop the drill,
put the Direction Lever in the center
position and change the torque setting. Reset the rotation direction before continuing.
16. If Drilling:
Use the Drill torque setting, as described above.
For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353.

Drill only as deep as necessary. Do
not drill deeper than necessary into
walls or other areas where you cannot identify any possible hazards
behind the drilling surface.
To reduce jamming as the Bit breaks
through the workpiece, decrease the
drilling pressure when the point of the
Bit breaks through the workpiece.
17. When you have drilled the hole,
remove the Bit from the hole while
the Cordless Drill is still running. This
prevents the Bit from getting caught
in the hole and causing damage.
