Intended use
Your Black & Decker impact screwdriver has been designed
for screwdriving applications and for drilling pilot holes in
wood, metal and plastics.
This tool is intended for consumer use only.
Your Black & Decker charger has been designed for charging
the battery in the tool with which it was supplied.
General 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.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
1. Work area
a. Keep work area clean and well lit.
Cluttered and dark areas invite accidents.
b. 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.
c. Keep children and bystanders away while
operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
2. Electrical safety
a. Power tool plugs must match the outlet.
Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any
adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools.
Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of
electric shock.
b. Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces
such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is
earthed or grounded.
c. Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
d. Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for
carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts.
Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric
shock.
e. When operating a power tool outdoors, use an
extension cord suitable for outdoor use.
Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of
electric shock.
3. Personal safety
a. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use
common sense when operating a power tool. Do not
use a power tool while you are tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol or medication.
A moment of inattention while operating power tools may
result in serious personal injury.
b. Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Safety equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety
shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for
appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
c. Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the switch is in
the off position before plugging in.
Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or
plugging in power tools that have the switch on invites
accidents.
d. Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning
the power tool on.
A wrench or a key left attached to a rotating part of the
power tool may result in personal injury.
e. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance
at all times.
This enables better control of the power tool in unexpected
situations.
f. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away
from moving parts.
Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be caught in
moving parts.
g. If devices are provided for the connection of dust
extraction and collection facilities, ensure these
are connected and properly used.
Use of these devices can reduce dust related hazards.
4. Power tool use and care
a. Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power
tool for your application.
The correct power tool will do the job better and safer at
the rate for which it was designed.
b. 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.
c. Disconnect the plug from the power source before
making any adjustments, changing accessories, or
storing power tools.
Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally.
d. Store idle power tools out of the reach of children
and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power
tool or these instructions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
3
e. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any
other condition that may affect the power tools
operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired
before use.
Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power
tools.
f. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean.
Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting
edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
g. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc.,
in accordance with these instructions and in the
manner intended for the particular type of power
tool, taking into account the working conditions
and the work to be performed.
Use of the power tool for operations different from those
intended could result in a hazardous situation.
5. Battery tool use and care
a. Ensure the switch is in the off position before
inserting battery pack.
Inserting the battery pack into power tools that have the
switch on invites accidents.
b. 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.
c. Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs.
Use of any other battery packs may create a risk of injury
and fire.
d. 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 burns
or a fire.
e. 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.
◆
Use auxiliary handles supplied with the tool. Loss of
control can cause personal injury.
Additional safety instructions for drill/screwdrivers
◆ Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when
performing an operation where the cutting tool may
contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with a
“live” wire will make exposed metal parts of the tool
“live” and shock the operator.
◆ Use clamps or another practical way to secure and
support the work piece to a stable platform. Holding
the work by hand or against your body leaves it unstable
and may lead to loss of control.
◆ Before drilling into walls, floors or ceilings, check for the
location of wiring and pipes.
◆ Avoid touching the tip of a drill bit just after drilling, as it
may be hot.
Additional safety instructions for batteries and chargers
Batteries
◆ Never attempt to open for any reason.
◆ Do not expose the battery to water.
◆ Do not store in locations where the temperature may
exceed 40 °C.
◆ Charge only at ambient temperatures between 10 °C and
40 °C.
◆ Charge only using the charger provided with the tool.
◆ When disposing of batteries, follow the instructions given
in the section “Protecting the environment”.
Chargers
◆ Use your Black & Decker charger only to charge the battery
in the tool with which it was supplied. Other batteries
could burst, causing personal injury and damage.
◆ Never attempt to charge non-rechargeable batteries.
◆ Have defective cords replaced immediately.
◆ Do not expose the charger to water.
◆ Do not open the charger.
◆ Do not probe the charger.
The charger is intended for indoor use only.
6. Service
a. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair
person using only identical replacement parts.
This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is
maintained.
Additional safety instructions for impact drills
◆ Wear ear protectors with impact drills. Exposure to
noise can cause hearing loss.
4
Read the instruction manual before use.
Fail safe isolating transformer. The mains supply is
electrically separated from the transformer output.
The charger automatically shuts off if the ambient
temperature becomes too high. As a consequence
the charger will be inoperable. The unit must be
disconnected from the mains supply and taken to an
authorised service centre for repair.
Electrical safety
Your charger is double insulated; therefore no earth
wire is required. Always check that the mains
voltage corresponds to the voltage on the rating
plate. Never attempt to replace the charger unit with
a regular mains plug.

Assembly
Warning! Do not charge the battery at ambient temperatures
below 4 °C or above 40 °C. Recommended charging
temperature: approx. 24 °C.
To charge the battery, insert the charger plug (5) into the
connector (3). Make sure that the head is in straight
position.
◆ Plug in the charger (4). Switch on at the mains.
◆ Leave the tool connected to the charger for 6-8 hours.
The charger may hum and become warm while charging;
this is normal and does not indicate a problem.
Generally, a charging time of 6 hours will enable the tool to
operate at an effective power level for most tasks. However,
further charging for up to 8 hours could significantly increase
the run time, depending on the battery and charging conditions.
◆ Before using the tool, unplug the charger and disconnect
the tool from the charger.
◆
Warning! Do not use the tool while it is connected to the
charger.
Drilling/screwdriving (fig. C)
For drilling and for tightening screws, use forward (clockwise)
rotation. For loosening screws or removing a jammed drill bit,
use reverse (counterclockwise) rotation.
◆ To switch the tool on in forward rotation press the upper
button on the forward/reverse switch (1).
◆ To switch the tool on in reverse rotation press the lower
button on the forward/reverse switch (1).
◆ To switch the tool off, release the switch.
Hints for optimum use
Fitting and removing a drill bit, socket driver bit or
screwdriver bit (fig. B)
This tool uses socket driver bits, screwdriver bits and
drill bits with a 1/4" (6.35 mm) hexagonal shank.
◆ Pull back the bit holder sleeve (2).
◆ Insert the bit shaft (6) into the bit holder.
◆ Release the bit holder sleeve.
Use
Charging the battery (fig. A)
The battery needs to be charged before first use and
whenever it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs that
were easily done before. When charging the battery for the
first time, or after prolonged storage, it will only accept an
80% charge. After several charge and discharge cycles, the
battery will attain full capacity. The battery may become warm
while charging; this is normal and does not indicate a problem.
Drilling
◆ Always apply a light pressure in a straight line with the
drill bit.
◆ Just before the drill tip breaks through the other side of
the workpiece, decrease pressure on the tool.
◆ Use a block of wood to back up workpieces that may
splinter.
◆ Use HSS drill bits when drilling in metal.
◆ Use a lubricant when drilling metals other than cast iron
and brass.
◆ Make an indentation using a centre punch at the centre of
the hole to be drilled in order to improve accuracy.
Screwdriving
◆ Always use the correct type and size of screwdriver bit.
◆ If screws are difficult to tighten, try applying a small
amount of washing liquid or soap as a lubricant.
◆ Always hold the tool and screwdriver bit in a straight line
with the screw.

When screwing in wood, it is recommended to drill a pilot
hole with a depth equal to the length of the screw. A pilot
hole guides the screw and prevents splintering or
distortion of the wood. For the optimum size of the pilot
hole, refer to the table below.
When screwing in hardwood, also drill a clearance hole
with a depth equal to half the length of the screw. For the
optimum size of the clearance hole, refer to the table below.
