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.

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. Do not use
on a ladder or unstable support.
Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, nonskid 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 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.

(Driving power of your drill-driver)
When using your drill-driver for various driving applications,
it becomes necessary to increase or decrease the torque in
order to help prevent the possibility of damaging screw
heads, threads, workpiece, etc. In general, torque should
correspond to the intensity of the screw diameter. If the
torque is too high or the screws too small, the screws may be
damaged or broken.
The torque is adjusted by rotating the torque adjustment ring.
See Figure 10. The torque is greater when the torque
adjustment ring is set on a higher setting. The torque is less
when the torque adjustment ring is set on a lower setting.

in objects being thrown into your eyes, resulting in
possible serious injury.
DRILLING

WARNING:
15
When drilling hard, smooth surfaces, use a center punch to
mark the desired hole location. This will prevent the drill bit
from slipping off center as the hole is started. However, the
lower speed feature allows starting holes without center
punching if desired. To accomplish this, simply operate your
drill at lower 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.
Fig. 13
Be prepared for binding or bit breakthrough. When these
situations occur, the 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 you are not
prepared, this loss of control can result in possible serious
injury.
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.

Your drill is equipped with Nickel-Cadmium rechargeable batteries. Length of service from each charging will depend on the
type of work you are doing.
The batteries in this tool have been designed to provide maximum trouble-free life. However, like all batteries, they will
eventually wear out. See Page 16 for DISPOSAL OF EXHAUSTED BATTERIES. Do not disassemble your drill or battery
pack.
To obtain the longest possible battery life, we suggest the following:
■ Store and charge your batteries in a cool area. Temperatures above normal room temperature will shorten battery life.
■ Never store batteries in a discharged condition. Wait for the batteries to cool and charge immediately.
■ All batteries gradually lose their charge. The higher the temperature, the quicker they lose their charge. If you store your
tool for long periods of time without using it, recharge the batteries every month or two. This practice will prolong battery
life.
DO NOT ABUSE POWER TOOLS. Abusive practices can
damage the tool, as well as the work piece.
WARNING:
When servicing use only identical replacement parts. Use
of any other parts may create a hazard or cause product
damage.
Avoid using solvents when cleaning plastic parts. Most
plastics are susceptible to damage from various types of
commercial solvents and may be damaged by their use. Use
a clean cloth to remove dirt, oil, grease, etc.
WARNING:
Do not attempt to modify this tool or create accessories
not recommended for use with this tool. Any such
alteration or modification is misuse and could result in a
hazardous condition leading to possible serious personal
injury.
WARNING:
CAUTION:
Do not at any time let brake fluids, gasoline, petroleumbased products, penetrating oils, etc., come in contact
with plastic parts. They contain chemicals that may
damage, weaken, or destroy plastics.
Any repairs requiring disassembly should only be
performed by an AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER. For
the repair center nearest you, call 1-800-525-2579.
