seek immediate medical attention.
CHECK DAMAGED PARTS. Before further use
of the tool, a guard or other part that is damaged
should be carefully checked to determine that it
will operate properly and perform its intended
function. Check for alignment of moving parts,
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts,
mounting, and any other conditions that may
affect its operation. A guard or other part that is
damaged should be properly repaired or
replaced by an authorized service center unless
indicated elsewhere in this instruction manual.

IMPORTANT
TOOLS
SAFETY
RULES
FOR BATTERY
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
serious injury.
Use of an attachment not recommended or sold
by the battery charger manufacturer may result
in a risk 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
•
FOR SAFE OPERATION

Your risk from these exposures varies,
depending on how often you do this type of
work. To reduce your exposure to these
chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and
work with approved safety equipment, such as
those dust masks that are specially designed

Your
HOT BATTERIES
When using your drill-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 yellow and green lights on your battery charger to come on
instead of the red light. The yellow and green lights indicate soft start mode and will switch to green only, indicating slow charge mode. The red light indicates fast charge mode, 1 hour charge time. The green light indicates
slow charge mode, requiring overnight charging for batteries to reach full charge. If the green light comes on
after letting battery pack cool down, remove it from charger for additional cooling. Once the battery pack cools
down, you can recharge battery pack in fast charge mode as normal. Do not leave a hot battery pack in charger
until it cools down. The green light wilt not go oft when battery pack cools. If fast charge mode is desired, you
must physically remove a hot battery pack from the charger, let it cool, then place it back in charger after it has
cooled down.
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 BATTERY PACK" for normal recharging of
batteries. If the charger does not charge your battery pack under normal circumstances, return both the battery
pack and charger to your nearest Sears repair center for electrical check.

serious injury.
_L
WARNING:
Do not allow familiarity with your
drill-driver to make you careless. Remember that
a careless fraction of a second is sufficient to
inflict severe injury.
CHARGING
BATTERY
Normally, the yellow and green lights on charger
will come on. This indicates charger is in soft start
mode and should switch to fast charge mode within
5 minutes. When charger is in fast charge mode
the red light will come on. If after a period of 15
minutes the yellow and green lights remain on,
remove battery pack, wait 1 minute and reinsert
battery pack in charger. If the yellow and green
lights continue to remain on after an additional 15
minutes, the battery pack is damaged and will not
accept a charge. Return battery pack to your
nearest Sears Repair Center for checking or
replacing.
PACK
The battery pack for this tool has been shipped in a
low charge condition to prevent possible problems.
Therefore, you should charge it until light on front of
charger changes from red to green.
•
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.
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.
TO CHARGE
•
•
When your battery pack becomes fully charged, the
red light will turn OFF and the green light will turn
ON.
•
Charge battery pack only with the charger
provided.
The battery pack will become slightly warm to the
touch while charging. This is normal and does not
indicate a problem.
•
Make sure power supply is normal household
voltage, 120 volts, 60 Hz, AC only.
Do not place charger in an area of extreme heat or
cold. It will work best at normal room temperature.
•
When batteries become fully charged, unplug
charger from power supply and remove the battery
pack.
•
Connect charger to power supply.
•
Place battery pack in charger aligning raised rib in
charger with groove in battery pack.
•
Press down on battery pack to be sure contacts on
battery pack engage properly with charger
contacts.

GEAR TRAIN
Your drill has a two-speed gear train designed for
drilling or driving at HI or LO speeds. A slide switch is
located on top of your drill to select either HI or LO
speed. When using drill in the HI speed range, speed
will increase and unit will have less power and torque.
When using drill in the LO speed range, speed will
decrease and unit will have more power and torque.
Use HI speed for fast drilling or driving applications
and LO speed for high power and torque applications.

This tool has the feature of being reversible. The
direction of rotation is controlled by a selector located

d_k WARNING:
Always wear safety goggles or
safety glasses with side shields when operating
tools. Failure to do so could result in objects
being thrown into your eyes, resulting in possible
serious injury.
When drilling hard smooth surfaces use a center
punch to mark desired hole location. This will prevent
the drill 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 tow
speed until 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.
LEVEL DRILLING
See Figure 12.
A convenient new feature provided with your drill is a
level. It is recessed in the motor housing on top of
your drill. It can be used to keep drill bits level during
drilling operations.
Hold tool firmly and place the bit at the point to be
drilled. Depress the switch trigger to start tool.
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.
LEVEL
,_
WARNING:
Be prepared for binding or 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 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 drill stalls, release
switch trigger immediately. Remove the bit from the
workpiece and determine the reason for jamming.

See Figure 16.
See Figures 14, 15, and 16.
The chuck must be removed in order to use some
accessories. To remove:
•

BATTERIES
Your drill's battery pack is equipped with 13 nickelcadmium rechargeable batteries. Length of service
from each charging will depend on the type of work
you are doing.
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.
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.
All batteries gradually lose their charge. The
higher the temperature the quicker they lose their
charge. If you store your tool for long periods of
time without using it, recharge the batteries every
month or two. This practice will prolong battery
life.
To obtain the longest possible battery life, we suggest
the following:
