WARNING] READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to follow all instructions listed
below, may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
WORK AREA
• Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches and dark areas invite accidents.
• Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases, or dust. Power tools create sparkswhich
may ignitethe dust or fumes.
• Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to
lose control.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
• A battery operated tool with integral batteries or a
separate battery pack must be recharged only with
the specified charger for the battery. A charger that
may be suitable for one type of battery may create a
risk of fire when used with another battery.
• Use battery operated tool only with specifically designated battery pack. Use of any other batteries may
create a risk of fire.
• Use battery only with charger listed.

• Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry
the charger. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp
edges, or moving parts. Replace damaged cords
immediately. Damaged cords may create a fire.
PERSONAL SAFETY
• Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not
use tool while tired or under the influence of drugs,
alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattentionwhile
operating power tools may result in serious personal
injury.
• Dress properly. Do net wear loose clothing or
jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your hair, clothing,
and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes,
jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
• Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is in the
locked or off position before inserting battery pack.
Carrying tools with your finger on the switch or inserting the battery pack into a tool with the switch on
invites accidents.
• Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning
the tool on. A wrench or a key that is left attached to a
rotating part of the tool may result in personal injury.
• Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times. Proper footing and balance enable better
control of the tool in unexpected situations.
• Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
• Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long
hair. Looseclothes, jewelry, or long hair can be drawn
into air vents.
• Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the
tool in unexpected situations.
TOOL USE AND CARE
• Use clamps or other practical way to secure and
support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding
the work by hand or against your body is unstable and
may lead to loss of control.
• Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your application. The correcttool will do the job better and
safer at the rate for which it is designed.
• Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off.
A tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
• Disconnect battery pack from tool or place the
switch in the locked or off position before making
any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing
the tool. Such preventive safety measures reduce the
risk of starting the tool accidentally.
• Store idle tools out of reach of children and other
untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in the hands
of untrained users.
• 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
sparks, burns, or a fire.
• Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp
and clean. Properly maintained tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to
control.
• Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts, and any other condition that
may affect the tool's operation. If damaged, have
the tool serviced before using. Many accidentsare
caused by poorly maintained tools.
• Use only accessories that are recommended by the
manufacturer for your model. Accessories that may
be suitable for one tool may create a risk of injurywhen
used on another tool.
• Keep the tool and its handle dry, clean and free
from oil and grease. Always use a clean cloth when
cleaning. Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleumbased products, or any strong solvents to clean your
tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk of loss of
control and deterioration of the enclosure plastic.
SERVICE
• When servicing a tool, use only identical
replacement parts. Follow instructions in the
Maintenance section of this manual. Use of
unauthorizedparts or failure to follow Maintenance
Instructions may create a risk of shock or injury.
• Tool service must be performed only by qualified
repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed
by unqualified personnel may result in a risk of injury.
• Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces
when performing an operation where the cutting
tool may contact hidden wiring. Contact with a "live"
wire will also make exposed metal parts of the tool
"live" and shock the operator.
• Do not place battery tools or their batteries near
fire or heat. Thiswill reduce the risk of explosion and
possibly injury.
•
• Know your power tool. Read operator's manual
carefully. Learn its applications and limitations, as
well as the specific potential hazards related to this
power tool. Followingthis rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock, fire, or serious injury.
Never use a battery that has been dropped or
received a sharp blow. A damaged battery is subject
to explosion. Properly dispose of a dropped or
damaged battery immediately.
•
• Always wear safety glasses with side shields.
Everyday glasses have only impact resistant lenses.
They are NOT safety glasses. Following this rule will
reduce the risk of eye injury.
• Protect your lungs. Wear a face or dust mask if the
operation is dusty. Following this rule will reduce the
risk of serious personal injury.
Batteries vent hydrogen gas and can explode in
the presence of a source of ignition, such as a pilot
light. To reduce the risk of serious personal injury,
never use any cordless product in the presence of
open flame. An exploded battery can propel debris and
chemicals. If exposed, flush with water immediately.
•
Do not charge battery tool in a damp or wet
location. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock.
For best results, your battery tool should be
charged in a location where the temperature is
more than 50°F but less than 10O°F.Do not store
outside or in vehicles,
• Protect your hearing. Wear hearing protection
during extended periods of operation. Following this
rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
• Battery tools do not have to be plugged into an
electrical outlet; therefore, they are always in
operating condition. Be aware of possible hazards
when not using your battery tool or when changing
accessories. Following this rule will reduce the risk of
electric shock, fire, or serious personal injury.

NOTE; This situation only occurs when continuous use of
the tool causes the batteries to become hot. It does not
occur under normal circumstances. Refer to "Charging
a Cool Battery Pack" for normal recharging of batteries.
If the charger does not charge the battery pack under
normal circumstances, return both the battery pack and
charger to your nearest Sears Repair Center for electrical
check.
If battery pack is below normal temperature range, the
green LED on charger will come on. Allow battery pack to
reach normal temperature,then the red LED will come on.
NOTE: If the charger does net charge the battery pack
under normal circumstances, return both the battery pack
and charger to your nearest Sears Repair Center for
electrical check.
• Charge the battery pack only with the charger provided.
• Make sure the power supply is normal household

SHOWNIN CHARGER
• Normally the red LED on charger will come on. This
indicates the charger is in fast charging mode.
• Red LED should remain on for approximately 1 hour
then the green LED will come on. Green LED on
indicates battery pack is fully charged and charger is
in maintenance charge mode.
CHARGER
NOTE: The green LED will remain on until the battery
pack is removed from the charger or charger is
disconnected from the power supply.
• If both yellow and green LEDs come on, this indicates
a deeply discharged or defective battery pack. Allow
the battery pack to remain in the charger for 15 to 30
minutes. When the battery pack reaches normal
voltage range, the red LED should come on. If the red
LED does not come on after 30 minutes, this may
indicate a defective battery pack and should be
replaced.
