Torque-Adjustment ring
The torque clutch can be adjusted to any
of 24 different settings (23 driving and 1
drilling). The higher the torque setting, the
more force the cordless drill/driver produces
to turn an object in either LO or HI rotation
speed.
When using the cordless drill/driver for
driving applications, it is necessary to
increase or decrease the torque to help
prevent the damage to screw heads,
threads, work-piece, etc. Adjust the torque
by rotating the torque-adjustment ring. The
proper setting depends on the job and the
type of bit, fastener, and material you will be
using.
In general, use greater torque for larger
screws, but if the torque is too high, the
screws may be damaged or broken. For
delicate operations, such as removing a
partially stripped screw, use a low torque
setting. For operations such as drilling into
hardwood, use a higher torque setting.
NOTICE: Do not change the torque setting
when the tool is running.
NOTICE: When adjusting the torque ring,
make sure that the speed switch is either
completely in the LO or the HI position.

GENERAL DRILLING (FIG. 12)
FIG.12
1. Check the direction-of-rotation selector
for the correct setting (forward or
reverse).
2. Use a vise or clamps to secure the
material to be drilled to keep it from
turning as the drill bit rotates.
3. Hold the cordless drill/driver firmly, and
place the bit at the point to be drilled.
4. Depress the trigger switch to start the
cordless drill.
5. Move the drill bit into the workpiece,
applying only enough pressure to keep
the bit cutting.
6. Do not force the cordless drill/driver or
apply sideways pressure to elongate a
hole. Allow the tool to do the work.
7. When drilling hard, smooth surfaces,
use a center punch to mark the desired
location of the hole. This will prevent the
drill bit from slipping off-center when
the hole is started.
8. When drilling metal, use light oil on the
drill bit to prevent it from overheating.
The oil will prolong the life of the bit and
will increase the drilling efficiency.
9. If the bit jams in the workpiece or if
the drill/driver stalls, stop the tool
immediately. Reverse the direction of
rotation and gently squeeze the trigger
to remove the bit from the workpiece.
Investigate and correct the cause of
jamming before resuming work.
17 19 21 23
WARNING: Be prepared for binding
when the bit breaks through the workpiece,
because the drill/driver has a tendency
to grab and kick opposite to the direction
of rotation, which could cause a loss of
control. If the operator is not prepared, this
loss of control could result in serious injury.
WARNING: Always wear safety
goggles or safety glasses with side shields
during power tool operation or when
blowing dust. If the operation is dusty, also
wear a dust mask.

OPERATION
DRILLING MODE OPERATION
SCREWDRIVER OPERATION
For drilling in wood, use twist bits, spade
bits, power auger bits or hole saws.
1. Select the desired speed/torque range
to match the planned operation.
2. Attach the desired fastener accessory
into the chuck.
3. Make a few practice runs in a scrap
piece before working.
1. When drilling “through” holes, place a
block of wood behind the workpiece to
prevent ragged or splintered edges on
the back side of the hole.
2. Select the desired speed to match the
planned operation.
3. Begin drilling at a very low speed to
prevent the bit from slipping off the
starting point, and then increase the
speed as the drill bit bites into the
material.
4. If the drill/driver stalls, it is usually
because it is being overloaded. Release
the trigger switch immediately, remove
the drill bit from the work, and determine
the cause of stalling.
5. Keep the motor running when pulling
the bit back out of the drilled hole. This
will prevent jamming.
For drilling in metal, use high-speed steel
twist drill bits.
1. 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.
2. When drilling a large hole, first use a
smaller bit to drill a small pilot hole to
prevent the larger bit from slipping.
3. Select the desired speed to match the
planned operation.
4. Begin drilling at a very low speed to
prevent the bit from slipping off the
starting point. Maintain a speed and
pressure that allows cutting without
overheating the bit.
5. If the drill/driver stalls, it is usually
because it is being overloaded. Release
the trigger switch immediately, remove
the drill bit from the work, and determine
the cause of stalling.
6. Keep the motor running when pulling

OPERATION
BLADE SELECTION
In order to obtain the best performance from
the saw, it is important to select the correct
blade for the particular application and type
of material to be cut.
Blades with fewer teeth, such as those with
10 teeth per inch (TPI), are typically used
for cutting wood, while blades with more
teeth are better for cutting metal or plastic.
We recommend 14 TPI for plastics and soft
metals and 18 TPI for hard metals.
INSTALLING A SAW
BLADE (FIG. 4)
1. Remove the battery pack from the saw.

GENERAL CUTTING
(FIG. 5A AND 5B)
WARNING: Before attaching the
battery pack on the tool, always check to
determine that the switch performs properly and returns to the “OFF” position
when released.
WARNING: Hold the tool only by
the plastic handle and the insulated grip
area to help prevent electrical shock.
When sawing into walls or floors you may
encounter electrical wiring. Sawing into a
“live” wire will cause electric shock.
1. Make sure that the workpiece is firmly clamped.
2. Use the appropriate type and size of blade
for the workpiece material and size.
3. Check for clearance behind the workpiece
so that the blade will not impact another
surface.
4. Mark the line of cut clearly. If cutting
metal, apply cutting oil on the line.
5. Hold the saw firmly with one hand on the
insulated gripping surface. Do not use two
hands with this saw (Figs 5a and 5b).
6. Depress the lock-off button and trigger
switch to start the saw and bring it to the
maximum desired cutting speed before
applying the blade to the workpiece.
7. With the shoe firmly on the workpiece,
apply the blade to the workpiece and begin
the cut.
8. Do not force the tool. Place the shoe
firmly on the workpiece while cutting. Use
only enough steady pressure on the blade
to keep the saw cutting.
9. Reduce pressure as the blade comes to
the end of the cut.
10. Allow the saw to come to a complete
stop before removing the blade from the
workpiece.
11. If sawing fiberglass, plaster, wallboard,
or spackling compound, clean the saw
motor vents frequently with a vacuum or
compressed air. These materials are highly
abrasive and may accelerate the wear on
motor bearings and brushes.
Page 10
OPERATION
WARNING: Do not allow familiarity
with the saw to make you careless. One
careless fraction of asecond is enough to
inflict serious injury.
NOTICE: Cutting speeds should vary with
the workpiece. Hard materials, such as
metals, require lower speeds; for softer
materials use higher speeds.
FIG. 5A
edge of the shoe as a pivot, lower the blade
into the workpiece.
3. As the blade starts cutting, raise the
handle of the tool slowly until the shoe rests
firmly on the workpiece.
4. After the blade has penetrated through
the workpiece, guide the saw along the
marked cutting line.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of
explosion, electric shock and property
damage, always check the work area for
hidden gas pipes, electrical wires or water
pipes when making blind or plunge cut.
WARNING: To avoid loss of control and serious injury, make sure that the
blade reaches maximum speed before
touching it to the workpiece.

OPERATION
METAL CUTTING
The saw can be used to cut metals, such
as sheet steel, pipe, steel rods, aluminum,
brass, and copper. Be careful not to twist or
bend the saw blade. Do not force.
The use of cutting oil is recommended when
cutting soft metals and steel. Cutting oil will
keep the blade cool, increase cutting action,
and prolong blade life.
WARNING: Never use gasoline,
because normal sparking could ignite the
fumes.
1. Securely clamp the workpiece in position,
and make the cut close to the clamping
point in order to minimize vibration of the
work being cut.
2. When cutting conduit pipe or angle iron,
clamp the work in a vise, if possible, and cut
close to the vise.
3. To cut thin sheet material, “sandwich” the
material between pieces of hardboard or
plywood, and clamp the layers together in
order to reduce vibration and tearing of the
material.
MAINTENANCE
GENERAL MAINTENANCE
WARNING: For your safety, always turn off
switch and remove battery pack before performing
any maintenance or cleaning.
The tool may be cleaned most effectively with
compressed dry air. Always wear safety goggles
when cleaning tools with compressed air.
WARNING: When servicing, use only
identical MASTERFORCE replacement parts. Use
of any other parts may create a hazard or cause
product damage. To ensure safety and reliability, all
repairs should be performed by a qualified service
technician at an Authorized Service Center.
It has been found that electric tools are subject
to accelerated wear and possible premature
failure when they are used to work on fiber glass,
wallboard, spackling compounds or plaster. The
chips and grindings from these materials are highly
abrasive to electrical tool parts, such as bearings,
brushes, commutators, etc. Consequently, it is not
recommended that this tool be used for extended
work on any fiberglass material, wallboard,
spackling compound or plaster. During any use on
these materials, it is extremely important that the
tool is cleaned frequently by blowing with an air jet.
WARNING: Do not at any time let
brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-based
products, penetrating oils, etc. come in
contact with plastic parts. Chemicals can
damage, weaken or destroy plastic, which
may result in serious personal injury.
Periodic maintenance allows for long life
and trouble-free operation. A cleaning,
and maintenance schedule should be
maintained. As a common preventive
maintenance practice, follow these
recommended steps:
• When work has been completed, clean
the tool to allow smooth functioning of the
tool over time.
• Use clean damp cloths to wipe the tool.
• Check the state of all electrical cables.
• Keep the motor air openings free from
oil, grease and sawdust or woodchips, and
store tool in a dry place.
• Be certain that all moving parts are
well lubricated, particularly after lengthy
exposure to damp and/or dirty conditions.
LUBRICATION
All of the bearings in this tool are lubricated
with a sufficient amount of high-grade
lubricant for the life of the tool under
normal operating conditions. Therefore, no
further lubrication is required.

battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
WORK AREA SAFETY
1. Keep the 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.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
1.A battery operated product 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.
2. Use battery operated product only with
specifically designated battery pack. Use
of any other batteries may create a risk of
fire.
3. Use only with charger listed.
PERSONAL SAFETY
1. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing
and balance at all times. This enables better
control of the power tool in unexpected
situations.
2. Do not use on a ladder or unstable
support. Stable footing on a solid surface
enables better control of the product in
unexpected situations.
PRODUCT USE AND CARE
1. Do not use the power tool if the switch
does not turn it on and off. Any power tool
that cannot be controlled with the switch is
dangerous and must be repaired.
2. Disconnect battery pack from product
or place the switch in the locked or off
position before making any adjustments,
changing accessories, or storing the
product. Such preventive safety measures
reduce the risk of starting the product
accidentally.
3. 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.
4. Keep the radio and its handle dry, clean
and free from oil and grease. Always use
a clean cloth when cleaning. Never use

products, or any strong solvents to clean
your radio. Following this rule will reduce
the risk of loss of control and deterioration
of the enclosure plastic.
5. Do not use this apparatus near water.
6. Clean only with dry cloth.
7.
Do
not
block
any
ventilation
openings. Install in accordance with the

OPERATION
POWER INDICATOR (Fig. 2)
This Lithium-Ion battery pack is equipped with
a power indicator that displays the battery
pack’s charge status. Press the powerindicator button to display the LED lights.
The LED lights will stay lit for approximately
4 seconds.
FIG. 2
NOTICE: The power indicator can be used
whether the battery is attached to or removed
from the tool.
80-100% Charge
60-79% Charge
40-59% Charge
20-39% Charge
Under 20% Charge
Completely Discharged
High/low temperature
LOW CAPACITY WARNING
BATTERY PROTECTION
If one LED on the power indicator begins to
flash, the battery pack’s charge is under 20%
capacity and should be recharged soon.
To protect the battery from damage and
prolong its life, the battery pack circuitry
will turn off the battery pack if it becomes
overloaded or if the temperature becomes too
high during use. This may happen in extremely
high torque, binding and stalling situations.
The battery pack will begin normal operation
when it cools down.
Unlike other battery pack types, Lithium-Ion
battery packs deliver fade-free power for their
entire run time. The tool will not experience a
slow, gradual loss of power as you work. To
signal that the battery pack is at the end of its
run time and needs to be charged, power to
the tool will drop quickly.
The power indicator will begin to display
four flashing LED lights when it is completely
discharged. When this happens, remove
the tool from the workpiece and charge the
battery pack as needed.
The power indicator will display four flashing
LED lights if the circuitry detects a momentary
overload. You can conveniently reset the
battery pack by releasing the power-tool
trigger. Press the power-indicator button
again to display the remaining charge.
NOTICE: If the power indicator continues to
flash four LED lights after resetting, place
the battery pack on the charger to evaluate
the battery condition.
NOTICE: A significantly reduced run time
after fully charging the battery pack indicates
that the battery is near the end of its usable
life and must be replaced.
Page 8
OPERATION
COLD WEATHER OPERATION
When the battery pack is very cold, it may
“pulse” for the first minute of use to warm
itself. Put the battery pack on a tool and use
the tool in a light application. After about a
minute, the battery pack will have warmed
itself and will operate normally.
WHEN TO CHARGE THE
BATTERY PACK
The Lithium-Ion battery can be charged at
any time and will not develop a “memory”
when charged after only a partial discharge.
It is not necessary to run down the battery
pack charge before recharging. Remove
the battery pack from the tool when it is
convenient for you and your job.
1. Use the power indicator to determine when
you need to recharge the battery pack.
2. You can “top-off” your battery pack’s
charge before starting a big job or long
period of use.
3.
Due
to
Lithium-Ion’s
fade-free
properties, the only time it is necessary
to charge the Lithium- Ion battery pack
is when the pack has reached the end of
its charge. To signal the end of charge,
power to the tool will drop quickly.
Charge the battery pack as needed.
HOW TO CHARGE THE BATTERY

OPERATION
POWER INDICATOR (FIG. 2)
This Lithium-Ion battery pack is equipped
with a power indicator that displays the
battery pack’s charge status. Press the power
indicator button to display the LED lights.
FIG. 2
The LED lights will stay lit for approximately
4 seconds.
NOTICE: The power indicator can be
used whether the battery is attached to or
removed from the tool.
80-100% Charge
60-79% Charge
40-59% Charge
20-39% Charge
Under 20% Charge
Completely Discharged
High/low temperature
LOW CAPACITY WARNING
BATTERY PROTECTION
If one LED on the power indicator begins to
flash, the battery pack’s charge is under 20%
capacity and should be recharged soon.
To protect the battery from damage and
prolong its life, the battery pack circuitry
will turn off the battery pack if it becomes
overloaded or if the temperature becomes too
high during use. This may happen in extremely
high torque, binding and stalling situations.
The battery pack will begin normal operation
when it cools down.
Unlike other battery pack types, Lithium-Ion
battery packs deliver fade-free power for their
entire run time. The tool will not experience a
slow, gradual loss of power as you work. To
signal that the battery pack is at the end of its
run time and needs to be charged, power to
the tool will drop quickly.
The power indicator will begin to display
four flashing LED lights when it is completely
discharged. When this happens, remove
the tool from the workpiece and charge the
battery pack as needed.
The power indicator will display four flashing
LED lights if the circuitry detects a momentary
overload. You can conveniently reset the
battery pack by releasing the power-tool
trigger. Press the power indicator button again
to display the remaining charge.
NOTICE: If the power indicator continues to
flash four LED lights after resetting, place
the battery pack on the charger to evaluate
the battery condition.
NOTICE: A significantly reduced run time
after fully charging the battery pack indicates
that the battery is near the end of its usable
life and must be replaced.

OPERATION
COLD WEATHER OPERATION
When the battery pack is very cold, it may
“pulse” for the first minute of use to warm
itself. Put the battery pack on a tool and use
the tool in a light application. After about a
minute, the battery pack will have warmed
itself and will operate normally.
WHEN TO CHARGE THE
BATTERY PACK
The Lithium-Ion battery can be charged at
any time and will not develop a “memory”
when charged after only a partial discharge.
It is not necessary to run down the battery
pack charge before recharging. Remove
the battery pack from the tool when it is
convenient for you and your job.
1. Use the power indicator to determine when
you need to recharge the battery pack.
2. You can “top-off” your battery pack’s
charge before starting a big job or long
period of use.
3.
Due
to
Lithium-Ion’s
fade-free
properties, the only time it is necessary
to charge the Lithium- Ion battery pack
is when the pack has reached the end of
its charge. To signal the end of charge,
power to the tool will drop quickly.
Charge the battery pack as needed.
HOW TO CHARGE THE BATTERY
PACK (FIG. 3)
