IMPORTANT SAFETY RULES FOR BATTERY
TOOLS
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.
USE ONLY THE CHARGER PROVIDED WITH
YOUR BATTERY TOOL. Do not substitute any
other charger. Use of another charger could
cause batteries to explode causing possible
sedous injury.
Do not expose charger to rain or snow.
Use of an attachment not recommended or sold
by the battery charger manufacturer may result
in a dsk of fire, electric shock, or injury to
persons.
To redUce risk of damage to charger body and
cord, pull by charger body rather than cord when
disconnecting charger.
Make sure cord is located so that it will not be
stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise subjected
to damage or stress.
RULES
M
FOR SAFE OPERATION
(Continued)
"An extension cord should not be used unless
absolutely necessary. Use of improper
extension cord could result in a dsk of fire and
electric shock. If extension cord must be used,
make sure:
a,
That pins on plug of extension cord are the
same number, size and shape as those of
plug on charger.
b.
That extension cord is properly wired and in

RECHARGING
It means
attentiontH
Your
HOT BATrERIES
When using your drift-driver continuously, the batteries in your battery pack will become hot. You should let a hot
battery pack cool down for approximately 30 minutes before attempting to recharge. When the battery pack
becomes discharged and is hot, this will cause the red light on your battery charger to flash. When battery pack
cools down, red light will glow continuously indicating fast charging mode, 1 hour charge time. The green light
indicates slow charging mode, requiring overnight charging for battedes to reach full charge. Once the battery
pack cools down, it will recharge battery pack in fast charging mode as normal.
Note: This situation only occurs when continuous use of your drill causes the batteries to become hot. It does not
occur under normal circumstances. Refer to "CHARGING YOUR DRILL-DRIVER" for normal recharging of
batteries. If the charger does not charge your battery pack under normal cimumstancas, return both the battery
pack and charger to your nearest Sears repair center for electrical check.

until removed from charger, if you remove
battery pack from charger and wait more than 5
seconds before reJnsertlng it back in charger,

After normal usage, 1 hour of charging time is
required to be fully charged. A minimum charge
time of 1-1/2 hours is required to recharge a
completely discharged tool.
•
The battery pack will become slightly warm to the
touch while charging. This is normal and does not
indicate a problem.
•
DO NOT place charger in an area of extreme heat
or cold. It will work best at normal room
Note: Batteries will not reach full charge the first time
they are charged. Allow several cycles (drilling
followed by recharging) for them to become fully
charged.

When drilling hard smooth surfaces use a center
punch to mark desired hole location. This will prevent
the ddll bit from slipping off center as the hole is
started. However, the low speed feature allows
starting holes without center punching if desired. To
accomplish this, simply operate your drill at a low
speed until the hole is started.
The material to be ddlled should be secured in a vise
or with clamps to keep it from turning as the drill bit
rotates.

LEVEL
_1= WARNING:
Be prepared for binding or bit
breakthrough. When these situations occur, ddll
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 sedous injury.
When drilling metals, use a 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 ddU stalls, release
switch trigger immediately. Remove the bit from the
workpiece and determine the reason for jamming.

BATTERIES
Your ddil's battery pack is equipped with 14 nickelcadmium rechargeable batteries. Length of service
from each charging will depend on the type of work
you are doing.
The batteries in this tool have been designed to
provide maximum trouble free life. However, like all
batteries, they will eventually wear out. DO NOT
disassemble battery pack and attempt to replace the
battedes. Handling of these battsdes, especially when
weadng rings and jewelry, could result in a sedous
bum.
To obtain the longest possible battery life, we suggest
the following:
OVERLOAD
Your ddll has a built-in ovedoad protector to protect
the motor during overloading or prolonged use. The
overload protector automatically activates to break the
circuit. When this occurs, allow your drill to cool a few
seconds before resuming operation.

•
Store and charge your batteries in a cool area.
Temperatures above normal room temperature
will shorten battery life.
•
Never store batteries in a discharged condition.
Recharge them immediately after they are
discharged.
•
All battedes gradually lose their charge. The
higher the temperature the quicker they lose their
charge. If you store your tool for long pedods of
time without using it, recharge the battedes every
month or two. This practice will prolong battery
life.
