General Power Tool Safety Warnings
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 mains-operated
(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.
f) If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable,
use a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protected
supply. Use of a GFCI 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, nonskid 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 energizing 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 jewelry.
Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving
parts. Loose clothes, jewelry 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.
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.
5) BATTERY TOOL USE AND CARE
a) 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.
b) Use power tools only with specifically designated battery
packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a risk of
injury and fire.
c) 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.
d) 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.

as battery pack may rupture causing serious personal injury.
Consult the chart at the end of this manual for compatibility of
batteries and chargers.
• Charge the battery packs only in DEWALT chargers.
• DO NOT splash or immerse in water or other liquids.
• Do not store or use the tool and battery pack in locations
where the temperature may reach or exceed 105 °F (40 ˚C)
(such as outside sheds or metal buildings in summer).
WARNING: Fire hazard. Never attempt to open the battery pack
for any reason. If battery pack case is cracked or damaged, do not
insert into charger. Do not crush, drop or damage battery pack. Do
not use a battery pack or charger that has received a sharp blow,
been dropped, run over or damaged in any way (i.e., pierced with a
nail, hit with a hammer, stepped on). Damaged battery packs should
be returned to service center for recycling.
WARNING: Fire hazard. Do not store or carry battery so
that metal objects can contact exposed battery terminals.
For example, do not place battery in aprons, pockets, tool boxes,
product kit boxes, drawers, etc., with loose nails, screws, keys, etc.
Transporting batteries can possibly cause fires if the battery
terminals inadvertently come in contact with conductive
materials such as keys, coins, hand tools and the like. The US
Department of Transportation Hazardous Material Regulations (HMR)
actually prohibit transporting batteries in commerce or on airplanes
(i.e., packed in suitcases and carry-on luggage) UNLESS they are
properly protected from short circuits. So when transporting individual
batteries, make sure that the battery terminals are protected and well
insulated from materials that could contact them and cause a short
circuit.
SPECIFIC SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR LITHIUM ION (Li-Ion)
• Do not incinerate the battery pack even if it is severely
damaged or is completely worn out. The battery pack can
explode in a fire. Toxic fumes and materials are created when
lithium ion battery packs are burned.
• If battery contents come into contact with the skin,
immediately wash area with mild soap and water. If battery
liquid gets into the eye, rinse water over the open eye for 15
minutes or until irritation ceases. If medical attention is needed,
the battery electrolyte is composed of a mixture of liquid organic
carbonates and lithium salts.
• Contents of opened battery cells may cause respiratory
irritation. Provide fresh air. If symptoms persists, seek medical
attention.
WARNING: Burn hazard. Battery liquid may be flammable if
exposed to spark or flame.
The RBRC™ Seal
The RBRC™ (Rechargeable Battery Recycling
Corporation) Seal on the nickel cadmium, nickel metal
hydride or lithium ion batteries (or battery packs) indicate
that the costs to recycle these batteries (or battery
packs) at the end of their useful life have already been
paid by DEWALT. In some areas, it is illegal to place
spent nickel cadmium, nickel metal hydride or lithium ion batteries
in the trash or municipal solid waste stream and the RBRC program
provides an environmentally conscious alternative.
RBRC™, in cooperation with DEWALT and other battery users, has
established programs in the United States and Canada to facilitate
the collection of spent nickel cadmium, nickel metal hydride or lithium

Important Safety Instructions for All
Battery Chargers
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS: This manual contains important
safety and operating instructions for battery chargers.
• Before using charger, read all instructions and cautionary markings
on charger, battery pack, and product using battery pack.
WARNING: Shock hazard. Do not allow any liquid to get inside
charger. Electric shock may result.
CAUTION: Burn hazard. To reduce the risk of injury, charge only
DEWALT rechargeable batteries. Other types of batteries may burst
causing personal injury and damage.
NOTICE: Under certain conditions, with the charger plugged in to the
power supply, the charger can be shorted by foreign material. Foreign
materials of a conductive nature such as, but not limited to, grinding
dust, metal chips, steel wool, aluminum foil, or any buildup of metallic
particles should be kept away from charger cavities. Always unplug the
charger from the power supply when there is no battery pack in the
cavity. Unplug charger before attempting to clean.
• DO NOT attempt to charge the battery pack with any
chargers other than the ones in this manual. The charger and
battery pack are specifically designed to work together.
• These chargers are not intended for any uses other than
charging DEWALT rechargeable batteries. Any other uses may
result in risk of fire, electric shock or electrocution.
• Do not expose charger to rain or snow.
• Pull by plug rather than cord when disconnecting charger.
This will reduce risk of damage to electric plug and cord.
• Make sure that cord is located so that it will not be stepped
on, tripped over, or otherwise subjected to damage or
stress.
• Do not use an extension cord unless it is absolutely
necessary. Use of improper extension cord could result in risk of
fire, electric shock, or electrocution.
• 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.
• An extension cord must have adequate wire size (AWG
or American Wire Gauge) for safety. The smaller the gauge
number of the wire, the greater the capacity of the cable, that is
16 gauge has more capacity than 18 gauge. An undersized cord
will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and
overheating. When using more than one extension to make up the
total length, be sure each individual extension contains at least the
minimum wire size. The following table shows the correct size to
use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If in
doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number,
the heavier the cord.

charger on a soft surface that might block the ventilation
slots and result in excessive internal heat. Place the charger
in a position away from any heat source. The charger is ventilated
through slots in the top and the bottom of the housing.
• Do not operate charger with damaged cord or plug.
• Do not operate charger if it has received a sharp blow, been
dropped, or otherwise damaged in any way. Take it to an
authorized service center.
• Do not disassemble charger; take it to an authorized service
center when service or repair is required. Incorrect reassembly
may result in a risk of electric shock, electrocution or fire.
• Disconnect the charger from the outlet before attempting
any cleaning. This will reduce the risk of electric shock.
Removing the battery pack will not reduce this risk.
• NEVER attempt to connect 2 chargers together.
• The charger is designed to operate on standard 120V
household electrical power. Do not attempt to use it on any
other voltage. This does not apply to the vehicular charger.
Chargers
Your tool uses a DEWALT charger. Be sure to read all safety instructions
before using your charger. Consult the chart on the back cover of this
manual for compatibility of chargers and battery packs.
Charging Procedure (Fig. 1)
1. Plug the charger into an appropriate outlet before inserting battery
pack.
2. Insert the battery pack (A) into the charger, as shown in Figure 1,
making sure the pack is fully seated in charger. The red (charging)
light will blink continuously indicating that the charging process
has started.
FIG. 1
A
3. The completion of charge will be indicated by the red light
remaining ON continuously. The pack is fully charged and may be
used at this time or left in the charger.
Charge Indicators
Some chargers are designed to detect certain problems that can arise
with battery packs. Problems are indicated by the red light flashing
at a fast rate. If this occurs, re-insert battery pack into the charger. If
the problem persists, try a different battery pack to determine if the
charger is OK. If the new pack charges correctly, then the original
pack is defective and should be returned to a service center or
other collection site for recycling. If the new battery pack elicits the
same trouble indication as the original, have the charger tested at an
authorized service center.
HOT/COLD PACK DELAY
Some chargers have a Hot/Cold Pack Delay feature: when the charger
detects a battery that is hot, it automatically starts a Hot Pack Delay,
suspending charging until the battery has cooled. After the battery
has cooled, the charger automatically switches to the Pack Charging
mode. This feature ensures maximum battery life. The red light flashes
long, then short while in the Hot/Cold Pack Delay mode.
LEAVING THE BATTERY PACK IN THE CHARGER
The charger and battery pack can be left connected with the red light
glowing indefinitely. The charger will keep the battery pack fresh and
fully charged.
NOTE: A battery pack will slowly lose its charge when kept out of
the charger. If the battery pack has not been kept on maintenance
charge, it may need to be recharged before use. A battery pack may
also slowly lose its charge if left in a charger that is not plugged into
an appropriate AC source.
WEAK BATTERY PACKS: Chargers can also detect a weak battery
pack. Such batteries are still usable but should not be expected to
perform as much work. The charger will indicate to replace battery
pack.
Important Charging Notes
1. Longest life and best performance can be obtained if the battery
pack is charged when the air temperature is between 65°F and
75 °F (18 °–24 °C). DO NOT charge the battery pack in an air
temperature below +40 °F (+4.5 °C), or above +105 °F (+40.5 °C).
This is important and will prevent serious damage to the battery
pack.
2. The charger and battery pack may become warm to touch while
charging. This is a normal condition, and does not indicate a
problem. To facilitate the cooling of the battery pack after use,
avoid placing the charger or battery pack in a warm environment
such as in a metal shed, or an uninsulated trailer.
3. If the battery pack does not charge properly:
a. Check operation of receptacle by plugging in a lamp or other
appliance;
b. Check to see if receptacle is connected to a light switch which
turns power off when you turn out the lights;
c. Move charger and battery pack to a location where the
surrounding air temperature is approximately 65 °F–75 °F
(18 °–24 °C);
d. If charging problems persist, take the tool, battery pack and
charger to your local service center.
4. The battery pack should be recharged when it fails to produce
sufficient power on jobs which were easily done previously. DO
NOT CONTINUE to use under these conditions. Follow the
charging procedure. You may also charge a partially used pack
whenever you desire with no adverse affect on the battery pack.
5. Foreign materials of a conductive nature such as, but not limited
to, grinding dust, metal chips, steel wool, aluminum foil, or any
buildup of metallic particles should be kept away from charger
cavities. Always unplug the charger from the power supply when
there is no battery pack in the cavity. Unplug charger before
attempting to clean.
6. Do not freeze or immerse charger in water or any other liquid.
WARNING: Shock hazard. Don’t allow any liquid to get inside
charger. Electric shock may result.
CAUTION: Never attempt to open the battery pack for any
reason. If the plastic housing of the battery pack breaks or cracks,
return to a service center for recycling.
Storage Recommendations
1. The best storage place is one that is cool and dry away from direct
sunlight and excess heat or cold.
2. For long storage, it is recommended to store a fully charged
battery pack in a cool dry place out of the charger for optimal
results.
NOTE: Battery packs should not be stored completely depleted of
charge. The battery pack will need to be recharged before use.
