GENERAL SAFETY RULES
■
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 may 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.
■
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 enables 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.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
■
■
Double insulated tools are equipped with a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one
way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet,
reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a
qualified electrician to install a polarized outlet.
Do not change the plug in any way. Double insulation
eliminates the need for the three-wire
grounded power cord and grounded power supply
system.
Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces,
such as pipes, radiators, ranges, and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if
your body is grounded.
■
Don’t expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the
risk of electric shock.
■
Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to
carry the tools or pull the plug from an outlet.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges, or
moving parts. Replace damaged cords immediately. Damaged cords increase the risk of electric
shock.
■
TOOL USE AND CARE
■
■
■
■
■
■
When operating a power tool outside, use an
outdoor extension cord marked “W-A” or “W”.
These cords are rated for outdoor use and reduce
the risk of electric shock.
■
PERSONAL SAFETY
■
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 or drawn into air vents.
Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is off
before plugging in. Carrying tools with your finger
on the switch or plugging in tools that have the switch
on, invites accidents.
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.
■
3
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. Any tool that cannot be controlled with the switch
is dangerous and must be repaired.
Disconnect the plug from power source before
making any adjustments, changing accessories,
or storing the tool. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
Store idle tools out of the reach of children and
other untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in
the hands of untrained users.
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 become hazardous when used on another tool.
GENERAL SAFETY RULES
■
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 electric shock or injury.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the cutting tool may contact
hidden wiring or its cord. Contact with a “live” wire will make exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and shock the operator.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY RULES
■
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.
■
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.
■
Always wear safety glasses. Everyday eyeglasses have only impact-resistant lenses; they
are NOT safety glasses. Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
■
Protect your lungs. Wear a face or dust mask if
the operation is dusty. Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
■
Inspect for and remove all nails from lumber before using this tool. Following this rule will reduce
the risk of serious personal injury.
■
Protect your hearing. Wear hearing protection
during extended periods of operation. Following
this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
■
Drugs, alcohol, medication. Do not operate tool
while under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or
any medication. Following this rule will reduce the
risk of electric shock, fire, or serious personal injury.
■
Inspect tool cords periodically and, if damaged,
have repaired at your nearest authorized service
center. Constantly stay aware of cord location.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric
shock or fire.
■
Save these instructions. Refer to them frequently
and use them to instruct others who may use
this tool. If you loan someone this tool, loan them
these instructions also.
■
Check damaged parts. Before further use of the
tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should
be carefully checked to determine that it will
operate properly and perform its intended function. Check for alignment of moving parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and any other conditions that may affect its
operation. A guard or other part that is damaged
should be properly repaired or replaced by an
authorized service center. Following this rule will
reduce the risk of shock, fire, or serious injury.
■
WARNING:
Some dust created by power sanding, sawing,
grinding, drilling, and other construction activities
contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth
defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples
of these chemicals are:
• lead from lead-based paints,
• crystalline silica from bricks and cement
and other masonry products, and
• arsenic and chromium from chemicallytreated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending
on how often you do this type of work. To reduce
your exposure to these chemicals: work in a well
ventilated area, and work with approved safety
equipment, such as those dust masks that are
specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
Do not abuse cord. Never carry the tool by the
cord or yank it to disconnect it from the receptacle. Keep cord away from heat, oil, and sharp
edges. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric shock or fire.

FEATURES
DOUBLE INSULATION
VARIABLE SPEED
Double insulation is a concept in safety in electric power
tools, which eliminates the need for the usual three-wire
grounded power cord. All exposed metal parts are
isolated from the internal metal motor components with
protecting insulation. Double insulated tools do not need
to be grounded.
This tool has a variable speed switch that delivers higher
speed with increased trigger pressure. Speed is controlled
by the amount of switch trigger depression.
REVERSIBLE
This hammer drill allows you to reverse the drill rotation.
You can control the direction of the chuck with a lever
located above the switch trigger.
WARNING:
The double insulated system is intended to protect
the user from shock resulting from a break in the
tool's internal wiring. Observe all normal safety precautions to avoid electrical shock.
DRILL MODE
You can change the drill mode depending on the type of
material in which you are drilling.
DEPTH GAUGE ROD

■ Depress the switch trigger to start the drill.
■ Move the drill bit into the workpiece applying only
enough pressure to keep the bit cutting.
Fig. 11
WARNING:
Be prepared for binding or breakthrough. When these
situations occur, the drill has a tendency to grab and
kick in the opposite direction and could cause loss of
control when breaking through material. If you are
not prepared, this loss of control could result in possible serious injury.
NOTE: Do not force the drill or apply side pressure
to elongate a hole. Let your drill and bit do the work.
12
OPERATION
■ 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.
HELPFUL TIPS
■ When drilling hard, smooth surfaces, use a center
punch to mark the desired hole location. This measure will prevent the drill bit from slipping off center
as you start the hole. However, the variable speed
feature allows you to start holes without center
punching. To accomplish this, operate the drill at a
low speed until you start the hole.
■ When drilling metals, use a light oil on the drill to
keep it from overheating. The oil will prolong the life
of the bit and increase the drilling action.
MAINTENANCE
WARNING:
When servicing use only identical Ryobi replacement parts. Use of any other parts may create a hazard or cause
product damage.
GENERAL
WARNING:
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 clean cloths to remove dirt, carbon dust, etc.
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:
LUBRICATION
Do not at any time let brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-based products, penetrating oils, etc. come in
contact with plastic parts. They contain chemicals
that can damage, weaken, or destroy plastic.
All the bearings in this tool are lubricated with a sufficient
amount of high grade lubricant for the life of the unit
under normal operating conditions. Therefore, no further
lubrication is required.
When electric tools are used on fiberglass boats, sports
cars, wallboard, spackling compounds, or plaster, it has
been found that they are subject to accelerated wear and
possible premature failure, as the fiberglass chips and
grindings are highly abrasive to bearings, brushes,
commutators, etc. Consequently, we do not
recommended that this tool be used for extended work
on any fiberglass material, wallboard, spackling
compounds, or plaster. If, however, you do work with any
of these materials, it is extremely important that the tool
is cleaned frequently by blowing with an air jet.
