safety INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING:
Read all safety
warnings and 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.
WARNING: Risk of fire and
electric shock. Dry location use only.
Do not expose to rain. Risk of injury.
Work area safety
1. Keep work area clean and well lit.
Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
2. 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.
3. Keep children and bystanders
away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose
control.
Electrical safety
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Do not expose power tools to
rain or wet conditions. Water entering
a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
4. Do not abuse the cord. Never
use the cord for carrying, pulling or
unplugging the power tool. Keep the
cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges
or moving parts. Damaged or entangled
cords increase the risk of electric shock.
5. 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.
6. 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.
Personal safety
1. Stay alert, watch what you are
doing and use common sense when
operating a power tool. Do not use the
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.
2.Use personal protective equipment.
Always wear eye protection. Protective
equipment such as a dust mask, nonskid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection,
used
for
appropriate
conditions, will reduce personal injuries.
3. Prevent unintentional starting.
Ensure that the switch is in the offposition 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.
Page 4
safety INSTRUCTIONS
4. 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.
5. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing
and balance at all times. This enables better
control of the power tool in unexpected
situations.
6. 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.
7. If devices are provided for the
connection of dust extraction and
collection facilities, ensure that these are
connected and properly used. Use of these
devices can reduce dust-related hazards.
5. 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.
6. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean.
Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp
cutting edges are less likely to bind and are
easier to control.
7. Use the power tool, accessories,
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.
USE AND CARE of the

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.
2. Use power tools only with specifically
designated battery packs. Use of any other
battery packs may create a risk of injury and
fire.
3. When the battery pack is not in use,
keep it away from other metal objects,
such as 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.
4. Under abusive conditions, liquid may
be ejected from the battery; avoid contact.
If contact accidentally occurs, flush with
water. If liquid contacts eyes, also seek
medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery
may cause irritation or burns.

OPERATION
DRILLING (Fig. 7)
FIG. 7
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.
WARNING: Be prepared for binding
at bit 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 hard smooth surfaces use
a center punch to mark the desired hole
location. This will prevent the drill bit from
slipping off center as 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 the
tool firmly and place the bit at the point to
be drilled. Depress the switch trigger to start
the tool.
When drilling metals, use 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.
This drill has an electric brake. When the
switch trigger is released, the chuck stops
turning. When the brake is functioning
properly, sparks will be visible through the
vent slots on the housing. This is normal and
is the action of the brake.
