General safety rules
f) If operating the charger in a damp location is
unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD)
protected supply with a max 30mA cut off limit.
Use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
3)Personal safety
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use
common sense when operating a power tool. Do not
use a power tool while you are tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment
of inattention while operating power tools may result in
serious personal injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye
protection. Protective equipment such as dust mask,
non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used
for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch
is in the off-position before connecting to power
source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying
the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the
switch or energising power tools that have the switch
on invites accidents.
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench before
turning the power tool on. A wrench or a key left
attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result
in personal injury.
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. This enables better control of the power tool
in unexpected situations.
f ) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away
from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair
can be caught in moving parts.
g) If devices are provided for the connection of dust
extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are
connected and properly used. Use of dust collection
can reduce dust-related hazards.
WARNING. Read all safety warnings and all instructions.
Failure to follow the warnings and instructions may result in
electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mainsoperated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless)
power tool.
1) Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark
areas invite accidents.
b) 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.
c)Keep children and bystanders away while operating a
power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
2) Electrical safety
a)Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify
the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with
earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and
matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
b)Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded
surfaces, such as pipes, radiators, ranges and
refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric
shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
c)Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
d)Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for
carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase
the risk of electric shock.
e)When operating a power tool outdoors, use an
extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a cord
suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
4) Power tool use and care
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool
for your application. The correct power tool will do the job
better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn
it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled
with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
c) Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or
the battery pack from the power tool before making
any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing
power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce
the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of children
and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power
tool or these instructions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any
other condition that may affect the power tool’s
operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired
before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly
maintained power tools.
f ) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are
less likely to bind and are easier to control.
g) Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc.
in accordance with these instructions, taking into
account the working conditions and the work to be
performed. Use of the power tool for operations different
from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.
h) This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory
or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person
responsible for their safety.
i) Children should be supervised to ensure that they do
not play with the appliance.
5) Battery tool use and care
a) Ensure the switch is in the off position before
inserting battery pack. Inserting the battery pack into
power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
b) Recharge only with the charger specified by the
manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type
of battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with
another battery pack.
c) Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may
create a risk of injury and fire.
d) 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 burns
or a fire.
e) Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from
the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally
occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes,
additionally seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the
battery may cause irritation or burns.
6) Service
a) Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair
person using only identical replacement parts. This
will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.

after only a few seconds of operation.
These safety devices have been fitted for the safety,
reliability and life of the tool.
Due to modern mass production techniques, it is unlikely that
your AUTOMATIC Power Tool is faulty or that a part is missing.
If you find anything wrong, do not operate the tool until the
parts have been replaced or the fault has been rectified.
Failure to do so could result in serious personal injury.
Important information – Product care
These drill/drivers use Lithium Ion Battery Cells. Care
MUST be taken to ensure both the safety and life of the
pack is maintained. Ensure you have read all of the safety
notes in the previous pages before using the drill/driver.
Safety devices and circuitry for this tool are located in
the battery pack of this tool. The battery pack is a vital
component, not just for the power source, but also for
the full safety control for both the charging and also the
tool operation. Treat the battery pack with care and within
the guidelines of this manual. If the pack does become
immersed in water or any fluids, or is subject to a sever
drop etc, or it does not operate within the guidelines of
this manual, immediately STOP using the battery pack
and have it checked.
During operation avoid overloading the drill/driver. If
the drill driver is overloaded it will automatically STOP.
Overloading may occur for a number of reasons including
when the drill driver is pushed too hard or when using a
drill bit or attachment greater than what is specified. If you
do overload the drill driver during operation refer to the
“Overload” section in this manual.
Note: When the battery of the drill is at the lower end of the
charge, the drill is more susceptible to the overload condition.
As mentioned above the battery pack is an integral
component of this tool and it is fitted with thermal safety
devices. Running the drill at close to maximum load, or
continual resetting of the overload will cause the battery
pack to over heat. When a preset cell temperature is
detected, the battery pack will automatically STOP
operating and will not restart until the battery pack has
cooled to a safe level.
Fitting and removing the battery pack
To remove the battery pack from
the drill firmly press the battery
release button (7) at the front of
the battery pack, and slide the
battery forwards out of the tool.
To install the battery pack with
the drill, align the battery pack
with the drill base and insert
firmly into place by sliding the
battery backwards into position. Ensure the battery pack
locks into position. You will hear a click.
Battery charging
To obtain the best life for the battery
IMPORTANT. Before attempting to charge the battery,
check the charger and the battery to ensure the charging
equipment matches the battery supplied. The components
are all labelled with component numbers.
IMPORTANT. The battery will be fully charged after 3-5
hours, remove it from the charger after this time. Do not
leave a battery charging for longer than 24 hours.
Note: It is suggested to remove the battery from the drill for
the charging process. Do not attempt to use the drill while
the charger is connected to the battery.
1. To commence charging, plug
in the adaptor from the plug
pack charger (10) into the
back of the battery and insert
firmly into place.
2. Plug in the plug pack charger
and switch on at the power
supply. The green LED
indicator located on the
back of the battery will indicate that the battery is being
charged. The red light on the back of the battery indicates
the battery is connected to the turned on charger.
During the charging process the Red and the Green
lights are on. When the battery is fully charged the red
light remains on while the green light turns off.
3. The battery charging time is approximately 3-5 hours.
4. When the battery is fully charged turn off the plug pack
charger power supply from the mains and remove the
charger plug from the battery.
Both the battery pack and the charger may become warm
to touch. This is also normal and not an issue of concern.
Both the battery pack and plug pack charger are fitted
with thermal safety devices and they will shut down if the
temperatures become too high.
Never allow the drill to come to a complete stand still
before recharging. The battery should be placed on charge
whenever the battery is noticeably running down or the drill
no longer performs a task it previously performed.
Avoid allowing lose items like screws or nails etc. to be
stored with battery packs as these or similar items can short
battery packs and cause a fire or explosion.
Always unplug the plug pack charger when not in use and
store in a dry secure place.
Avoid charging or storing your battery in temperatures
below 0ºC and above 40ºC.

2 Speed gearbox
Using the drill
Trigger switch
Use the forward/reverse switch
(4) to select the direction of
rotation, then pull the trigger
(3) This trigger switch is an
electronic variable speed control
which enables the user to vary
the speed continuously. The speed varies according to
how far the trigger switch is depressed. The further it is
depressed the faster the chuck will rotate and the lighter it is
depressed, the slower it will rotate.
To stop the drill, release the trigger switch.
Note. The variable Speed control fitted to this drill is NOT
intended to be used for long periods of time during the
operation of the task being performed. Use the variable
speed to start drilling and screwing tasks, and then fully
depress the trigger once the task has started.
CAUTION. Extended use of the variable speed under load will
overload and then permanently damage the speed control.
The 2 Speed Gearbox allows you
to select a gear with the optimum
speed and torque to suit the
Note. When changing the drill
selector ensures the drill is not
To select the LOW gear (low
speed, high torque setting), push
the gear selector (9) backward,
towards the back of the drill. The
symbol “I” will be displayed.
To select the HIGH gear (high
speed, low torque setting), push
the gear selector (9) forward,
towards the chuck.
The symbol “II” will be displayed.
Temperature Cut Out
If the drill is constantly overloaded, or the drill is used
constantly at maximum rating in high ambient conditions,
the battery cells may over heat causing the battery pack
to shut down.
When this occurs you will need to immediately stop drilling
and allow the battery cells to reduce the temperature.
To reduce the temperature of the cells remove the battery
pack from the drill and place the battery pack in a free air
environment, out of direct sunlight or any other heat source.
DO NOT force cool the pack in any way. Do not place in
refrigerators or freezers.
When the battery pack has cooled down it can again
be used to operate the drill, as long as the load or the
conditions causing the original excessive temperature
has been corrected.
Low voltage cut out
The battery pack used on this tool is fitted with a low
voltage cut out feature within the circuitry.
The low voltage cut out feature operates when the voltage
drops below a pre set value. This feature automatically
stops the drill from operating (similar to that of the over
load condition). When this condition occurs you will need
to either insert another battery into the drill or recharge the
existing battery.
The low voltage cut out feature has been added to
maximise the tools life. When this occurs, recharge the
battery pack by following the battery charging section in
this manual.
Note: Attempting to restart the tool without either recharging
the battery or installing another battery (with charge) will
lead to drill restarting and then stopping again, after only a
few seconds of operation.
Forward/reverse switch
Note. You can only change
the direction of rotation of the
drill using the forward/reverse
switch when the trigger is NOT
This switch (4) will allow you to
change the direction of the motor
while the trigger switch is not
Drilling uses the forward mode.
The reverse mode is intended
for the removal of screws and
assisting to remove jammed
drill bits.
Drill Overload
This drill is fitted with an
overload protection. If the drill is excessively forced, or the
task being performed is too great for the drill, the drill will
automatically go into an overload mode. When the drill goes
into overload, the drill will automatically and suddenly STOP.
To reset the overload, simply release the trigger. When the
trigger is pressed again, the drill will restart. Resume work
after the overload has been reset, but reduce the load by
using a smaller drill bit or re-sharpen the existing drill bit and
reduce the amount of force placed on the drill.
CAUTION. Do not continue to overload the drill and
constantly reset the overload. Doing this will cause the
battery cells to over heat.
Adjustable torque
These drills are equipped with
24 torque settings plus one drill
setting which are controlled
by the torque collar (8). All of
the torque settings are clearly
identified on the torque collar.
To adjust the torque setting you
rotate the torque collar. Rotate
the torque collar clockwise to
increase the torque setting
and rotate it anti-clockwise to
decrease the torque setting.
Controlling the torque allows
for better control when using
the drill on specific tasks and
prevents over-fastening and
For drilling, always use the use the Drill position by aligning
the Drill symbol with the triangular indicator on the front face
of the drill near the torque collar.
For setting the torque position, select a low setting on
the torque collar and align the selected symbol with the
triangular indicator on the top of the drill. Increase gradually
to set the correct torque. It is better to use a scrap piece of
material if possible to set the torque.
Inserting and removing bits
These drills have a keyless
chuck, which means that a chuck
key is not needed to secure a bit
in the drill.
Open the chuck by holding the
chuck collar and unscrewing
the chuck in an anti-clockwise
Do this sufficiently enough to
allow the drill bit to enter the jaws of the chuck.
Ensure the bit is fully inserted,
so that the chuck jaws grip the
straight section of the bit.
While holding the chuck collar
in place, rotate the chuck
clock-wise until the jaws tighten
on the bit. The chuck needs to be
tightened firmly to ensure the bit
is held securely.
To remove the bit, hold the chuck
collar while rotating the chuck
sharply in an anti-clockwise
direction, sufficiently enough to
allow the bit to be removed.
