Self-Tightening Chuck Operation (Fig. 5–7) WARNING: Do not attempt to tighten drill bits (or any other accessory) by gripping the front part of the chuck and turning the tool on. Damage to the chuck and personal injury may result. Always lock off trigger switch when changing accessories. WARNING: Always ensure the bit is secure before starting the tool. A loose bit may eject from tool causing possible personal injury. TO INSERT A DRILL BIT OR OTHER ACCESSORY 1. Lock the trigger in the OFF position. 2. Grasp the chuck sleeve (G) with one hand and use the other hand to secure the tool as shown in Figure 5. Rotate the sleeve counterclockwise (viewed from the front) far enough to accept the desired accessory. 3. Insert the bit or other accessory about 19 mm (3/4") into the chuck, as shown in Figure 6. Grasp the chuck sleeve securely and rotate the sleeve clockwise (viewed from the front) with one hand Torque Adjustment Collar (Fig. 2) Your tool has an adjustable torque screwdriver mechanism for driving and removing a wide array of fastener shapes and sizes and a hammer mechanism for drilling into masonry. Circling the torque adjustment collar (D) are numbers and a hammer symbol. These numbers are used to set the clutch to deliver a torque range. The higher the number on the collar, the higher the torque and the larger the fastener which can be driven. To select any of the numbers, rotate until the desired number aligns with the arrow. 8 FIG. 5 FIG. 6 while using the other hand to secure the tool. Rotate the sleeve clockwise until sleeve cannot be rotated any further, as demonstrated in Figure 7. As the drill is being operated in the forward position, the chuck will continually self-tighten the jaws of the chuck onto the bit to maximize the bit gripping strength. To release the accessory, repeat Step 2. Side Handle FIG. 7 CAUTION: Always operate the tool with the side handle properly assembled. Hold tool with both hands to maximize control. Side handle clamps to the front of the gear case as shown and may be rotated to permit right- or left-hand use. Side handle must be tightened sufficiently to resist the twisting action of the tool if the accessory binds or stalls. Be sure to grip the side handle at the far end to control the tool during a stall. If model is not equipped with side handle, grip drill with one hand on the handle and one hand on the battery pack. OPERATION Installing and Removing the Battery Pack (Fig. 8, 9) Drill Operation NOTE: Make sure your battery pack is fully charged. CAUTION: Make certain the lock-off button (B), as shown in Figure 1, is engaged to prevent switch actuation before removing or installing battery. To install the battery pack into the tool handle, align the base of the tool with the rails inside the tool’s handle and slide the battery pack firmly into the handle until you hear the lock snap into place (Fig. 8). To remove the battery pack from the tool, press the release button (H) and firmly pull the battery pack out of the tool handle. Insert it into the charger (Fig. 9) as described in the charger section of this manual. FIG. 8 1. Select the desired speed/torque range using the gear shifter to match the speed and torque to the planned operation. 2. For WOOD, use twist bits, spade bits, power auger bits or hole saws. For METAL, use high-speed steel twist drill bits or hole saws. Use a cutting lubricant when drilling metals. The exceptions are cast iron and brass which should be drilled dry. 3. Always apply pressure in a straight line with the bit. Use enough pressure to keep the drill bit biting, but do not push hard enough to stall the motor or deflect the bit. 4. Hold tool firmly with both hands to control the twisting action of the drill. 5. IF DRILL STALLS, it is usually because it is being overloaded. RELEASE TRIGGER IMMEDIATELY, remove drill bit from work, and determine cause of stalling. DO NOT CLICK TRIGGER OFF AND ON IN AN ATTEMPT TO START A STALLED DRILL – THIS CAN DAMAGE THE DRILL. 6. Keep the motor running when pulling the bit back out of a drilled hole. This will help prevent jamming. FIG. 9 H Hammerdrill Operation 1. When drilling, use just enough force on the hammer to keep it from bouncing excessively or “rising” off the bit. Too much force will cause slower drilling speeds, overheating, and a lower drilling rate. 9 Repairs 2. Drill straight, keeping the bit at a right angle to the work. Do not exert side pressure on the bit when drilling as this will cause clogging of the bit flutes and a slower drilling speed. 3. When drilling deep holes, if the hammer speed starts to drop off, pull the bit partially out of the hole with the tool still running to help clear debris from the hole. 4. For Masonry, use carbide-tipped bits or masonry bits. A smooth, even flow of dust indicates the proper drilling rate. This charger is not user serviceable. There are no user serviceable parts inside the charger. Servicing at an authorized service center is required to avoid damage to static sensitive internal components. To assure product SAFETY and RELIABILITY, repairs, maintenance and adjustments should be performed by a DEWALT factory service center, a DEWALT authorized service center or other qualified service personnel. Always use identical replacement parts. Screwdriver Operation Guarantee Select the desired speed/torque range using the three-speed gear shift lever on the top of tool to match the speed and torque to the planned operation. Insert the desired fastener accessory into the chuck as you would any drill bit. Set the torque adjustment collar to the desired setting. Make a few practice runs in scrap or unseen areas to determine the proper position of the clutch collar. Applicable to hand held Power Tools, Lasers and Nailers.
