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
■
■
■

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 enables
better control of the tool in unexpected situations.
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 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.
fire or heat. This will reduce the risk of explosion and
possible injury.
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.
WARNING: Batteries vent hydrogen gas and can
explode in the presence of a source of ignition, such
as a pilot light. To reduce the risk of serious personal
injury, never use any cordless product in the presence of open flame. An exploded battery can propel
debris and chemicals. If exposed, flush with water
immediately.

OPERATION
■ 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.
WARNING: Always wear safety goggles or safety
glasses with side shields when operating tools.
Failure to do so could result in objects being thrown
into your eyes, resulting in possible serious injury.
WARNING: Do not allow familiarity with your drilldriver to make you careless. Remember that a
careless fraction of a second is sufficient to inflict
severe injury.
■ Do not place charger in an area of extreme heat or
cold. It will work best at normal room temperature.
■ When batteries become fully charged, unplug charger
from power supply and remove the battery pack.
CHARGING BATTERY PACK
The battery pack for this tool has been shipped in a low
charge condition to prevent possible problems. Therefore,
you should charge it until light on front of charger changes
from red to green.
Note: Batteries will not reach full charge the first time they
are charged. Allow several cycles (drilling followed by
recharging) for them to become fully charged.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR RECHARGING
HOT BATTERIES
When using your drill-driver continuously, the batteries in
your battery pack will become hot. You should let a hot
battery pack cool down for approximately 30 minutes
before attempting to recharge. When the battery pack
becomes discharged and is hot, this will cause the yellow
and green lights on your battery charger to come on
instead of the red light. The yellow and green lights
indicate soft start mode and will switch to green only,
indicating slow charge mode. The red light indicates fast
charge mode, 1 hour charge time. The green light indicates slow charge mode, requiring overnight charging for
batteries to reach full charge. If the green light comes on
after letting battery pack cool down, remove it from
charger for additional cooling. Once the battery pack cools
down, you can recharge battery pack in fast charge mode
as normal. Do not leave a hot battery pack in charger
until it cools down. The green light will not go off when
battery pack cools. If fast charge mode is desired, you
must physically remove a hot battery pack from the
charger, let it cool, then place it back in charger after it
has cooled down.
Note: This situation only occurs when 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.
TO CHARGE
■ Charge battery pack only with the charger provided.
■ Make sure power supply is normal household
voltage, 120 volts, 60 Hz, AC only.
■ Connect charger to power supply.
■ Place battery pack in charger aligning raised rib in
charger with groove in battery pack.
■ Press down on battery pack to be sure contacts on
battery pack engage properly with charger contacts.
■ Normally, the yellow and green lights on charger will
come on. This indicates charger is in soft start mode
and should switch to fast charge mode within 5
minutes. When charger is in fast charge mode the red
light will come on. If after a period of 15 minutes the
yellow and green lights remain on, remove battery
pack, wait 1 minute and reinsert battery pack in
charger. If the yellow and green lights continue to
remain on after an additional 15 minutes, the battery
pack is damaged and will not accept a charge. 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.
WARNING:
The operation of any power tool can result in foreign objects being thrown into your eyes, which can
result in severe eye damage. Before beginning power tool operation, always wear safety goggles or
safety glasses with side shields and a full face shield when needed. We recommend Wide Vision
Safety Mask for use over eyeglasses or standard safety glasses with side shields, available at Sears
Retail Stores. Always use eye protection which is marked to comply with ANSI Z87.1.

Failure to do so could result in objects being thrown
into your eyes, resulting in possible serious injury.

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.
LEVEL DRILLING
See Figure 12.
A convenient new feature provided with your drill is a
level. It is recessed in the motor housing on top and end
of your drill. It can be used to keep drill bits level during
drilling operations.

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.
®
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.

BATTERIES
Your drill's battery pack 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. Do not disassemble battery pack
and attempt to replace the batteries. Handling of these
batteries, especially when wearing rings and jewelry,
could result in a serious burn.
To obtain the longest possible battery life, we suggest the
following:
■

Store and charge your batteries in a cool area.
Temperatures above or below normal room
temperature will shorten battery life.
Never store batteries in a discharged condition.
Recharge them immediately after they are
discharged.

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.
