SAFETY RULES
WARNING!
Read all instructions. Failure to follow all instructions
listed below may result in electric shock, fire and/or
serious injury. The term “power tool” in all of the
warnings listed below refers to your mains-operated
(corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless)
power tool.
 Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create
a risk of injury and fire.
 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.
 Use batteries only with chargers listed.
BATTERY PACK:
130377001 (R85008)
CHARGER:
140315001 (R85009)
 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.
 Do not place battery tools or their batteries near fire
or heat. This will reduce the risk of explosion and possibly
injury.
 Do not crush, drop or damage battery pack. Do not
use a battery pack or charger that has been dropped,
run over, received a sharp blow or damaged in any
way. A damaged battery is subject to explosion. Properly
dispose of a dropped or damaged battery immediately.
 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 in a damp or wet location.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric shock.
 For best results, your battery should be charged in a
location where the temperature is more than 50°F but
less than 100°F. Do not store outside or in vehicles.
 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.
 Save these instructions. Refer to them frequently and
use them to instruct others who may use this tool. If you
loan someone this tool, loan them these instructions also
to prevent misuse of the product and possible injury.
OPERATION
CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK
NOTE: New 24 Volt lithium-ion battery packs will not
work without first being charged. Before first time use,
charge the battery pack to activate it.
It is not necessary to drain the battery pack completely
before recharging. Lithium-ion battery packs have no
“memory” and can be recharged at any time. It is therefore
possible to charge the battery pack before extended usage
even if the battery pack is not completely drained of charge.
Use the charge level indicator to determine the amount of
charge in the battery pack.
Lithium-ion batteries deliver fade free power for their entire
run time. 24 Volt lithium-ion tools will not gradually lose
power due to decreasing battery charge. Instead, power from
the battery pack will drop from full to zero once the full charge
has been drained from the battery. Once this happens, the
tool’s power drops from full to zero, and recharging of the
battery is required.
TO CHARGE
A fully discharged battery pack with a temperature between
32°F (0°C) and 150°F (65°C) will charge in about an hour.
 Charge the 24 Volt lithium-ion battery pack only with the
charger provided.
� Connect the charger to a power supply.
NOTE:iIf needed, the charger can operate with most
generators and inverters rated at 300 Watts or higher.
 Attach the battery pack to the charger by aligning the
raised ribs on the battery pack with the grooves in the
charger, then slide the battery pack onto the charger. See
Figure 1.
 Do not place the charger in an area of extreme heat or
cold. It will work best at normal room temperature.
 After charging is complete, the continuous green light
will come on and the charge level indicator lights on the
battery will go off.
 The charger will keep the battery pack fully charged if left
on the charger.
CHARGE LEVEL INDICATOR
The charge level indicator shows that the battery is charged
at 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, or full capacity. To display the amount of
charge left in the battery, press and hold the charge level
indicator button.
MAINTENANCE
CHARGE LEVEL
INDICATOR
The battery pack for this tool is equipped with lithium-ion
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 batteries. Handling of these
batteries, especially when wearing rings and jewelry, could
result in a serious burn.
To obtain the longest possible battery life, we suggest the
following:
 Remove the battery pack from the charger once it is fully
charged and ready for use.
For battery pack storage longer than 30 days:
 Store the battery pack where the temperature is below
80°F and away from moisture.
 Store battery packs in a 30%-50% charged condition.
 Every six months of storage, charge the pack as
normal.

BATTERY PACK REMOVAL AND
PREPARATION FOR RECYCLING
Fig. 1
Li - Ion
NOTE: When the battery pack contains less than 10%
charge, the 1/4 charge level indicator will flash.
CHARGING A HOT BATTERY PACK
If the battery pack is above normal temperature range, the
red LED will begin flashing and the green LED will be off.
When the battery pack cools down to approximately 150°F
(65°C), the charger will automatically begin fast charge mode.
NOTE: Refer to CHARGING THE 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 repair center
for electrical check. For the location of your nearest repair
center, please call 1-866-539-1710.
CHARGING A COOL BATTERY PACK
If the battery pack is below normal temperature range, the
red LED will begin flashing and the green LED will be off.
When the battery warms to a temperature of more than 14°F
(-10°C), the charger will automatically begin charge mode.
COLD WEATHER OPERATION
The lithium-ion battery pack can be used in temperatures
down to -4°F (-20°C). When the battery pack is very cold, it
may “buzz” for the first minute of use to warm itself up. Put
the battery pack on a tool and use the tool in a light duty
application. After about a minute, the pack will have warmed
itself up and begin operating normally.
