OPERATION
BATTERY PROTECTION
The integrated protective circuitry prevents the battery pack from extreme
temperature, over discharge, and over-charge. To protect the battery from
damage and prolong its life, the battery pack circuitry will turn off the battery
pack if the temperature becomes too high during use.
NOTE: The battery can automatically reset after it cools down.
NOTE: A significantly reduced run time after fully charging the battery
pack indicates that the battery is near the end of its usable life and must be
replaced.
WHEN TO CHARGE THE BATTERY PACK
It is not necessary to run down the battery pack charge before recharging.
The Lithium-Ion battery can be charged at any time and will not develop a
“memory” when charged after only a partial discharge.
Remove the battery pack from the tool when convenient for you and your job.
“Top off” the battery pack charge by charging it for a time before starting a
big job or long period of use.
Due to Lithium-Ion fade-free properties, the only time it is necessary to
charge the Lithium-Ion battery pack is when the pack has reached the end
of its charge. To signal the end of charge, power to the tool will drop quickly.
Charge the battery pack as needed.
HOW TO CHARGE THE BATTERY PACK
NOTE: The Lithium-Ion battery pack
is shipped partially charged. Before
using it the first time, fully charge the
battery pack.

CHARGING A HOT BATTERY PACK
If the battery pack is above normal temperature range, the red LED will
illuminate and the green LED will be off. When the battery pack cools down
to approximately 104°F (40°C), the charger will automatically begin charging.
CHARGING A COLD BATTERY PACK
If the battery pack is below the normal temperature range, the red LED
will illuminate and the green LED will be off. When the battery warms to a
temperature of more than 50°F (10°C), the charger will automatically begin
charging.
DEFECTIVE BATTERY
If the charger detects a problem, the red LED will begin flashing and the
green LED will be off.
1. I f registering as defective, remove and reinsert the battery pack in the

charger. If the LED status reads “defective” a second time, try charging a
different battery pack.
2. I f a different battery pack charges normally, dispose of the defective
battery pack (see Maintenance section).
3. I f a different battery pack also indicates “defective,” the charger may be
defective.
BATTERY CHARGING
If the battery pack is being charged within a normal surrounding temperature
range (50°F to 104°F), the green LED will begin flashing and the red LED will
be off. The battery pack will reach a full charge in 30 minutes.
BATTERY FULL
When the battery is fully charged, the green LED Light on the charger will be
on and the red LED light will be off.
NOTE: The battery pack will fully charge, but will not overcharge, if left on the
charger.
NOTE: Charger may warm with several continuous charge cycles. This is part
of the normal operation of the charge. Charge in a well ventilated area.

MAINTENANCE
GENERAL MAINTENANCE
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, dust, oil,
grease, etc.
WARNING! Do not at any time let brake fluid, gasoline, petroleum-based
products, penetrating oils, etc. to come in contact with plastic parts. Chemicals can damage, weaken or destroy plastic which may result in serious personal injury.
WARNING! When servicing, use only identical MASTERFORCE replacement parts. Use of any other parts may create a hazard or cause product damage.
WARNING! Always wear safety goggles or safety glasses with side shields
when using compressed air to clean the tool. If the operation is dusty, also
wear a dust mask.
BATTERIES:
The battery pack is equipped with Lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries. The
duration of use from each charge will depend on the type of work performed.
The batteries in this tool have been designed to provide maximum troublefree life. Like all batteries, they will eventually wear out. Do not disassemble
the battery pack or attempt to replace the batteries. Handling of the batteries,
especially when wearing rings and jewelry, could result in a serious burn.
To obtain the longest possible battery life, read and understand the operator’s
manual.
I t is good practice to unplug the Charger/Adapter and remove the LithiumIon battery pack when not in use.For Lithium-Ion battery pack storage
longer than 30 days:
tore the Lithium-Ion battery pack where the temperature is below 80°F
S
(26°C) and free of moisture.
Store Lithium-Ion battery packs in a 30%-50% charged condition.
Every six months of storage, fully charge the Lithium-Ion battery pack.
Exterior may be cleaned with a cloth or soft non-metallic brush.
