The vibration emission level given in this information sheet has
been measured in accordance with a standardised test given in
EN60745 and may be used to compare one tool with another. It
may be used for a preliminary assessment of exposure.
WARNING: The declared vibration emission level
represents the main applications of the tool. However if
the tool is used for different applications, with different
accessories or poorly maintained, the vibration emission
may differ. This may significantly increase the exposure
level over the total working period.
An estimation of the level of exposure to vibration should
also take into account the times when the tool is switched
off or when it is running but not actually doing the job.
This may significantly reduce the exposure level over the
total working period.
Identify additional safety measures to protect the operator
from the effects of vibration such as: maintain the tool
and the accessories, keep the hands warm, organisation
of work patterns.

General Power Tool Safety Warnings
WARNING: Read all safety warnings and all
instructions. Failure to follow the warnings and
instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or
serious injury.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mainsoperated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless)
power tool.
1) Work area safety
a ) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or 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.
f ) If operating a power tool in a damp location is
unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD)
protected supply. Use of an RCD 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 personal protective equipment. Always wear
eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust mask,
non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used
for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
c ) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch
is in the off position before connecting to power
source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying
the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the
switch or energising 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 dust collection
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 and/or
the battery pack from the power tool 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.
e ) Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any
other condition that may affect the power tool’s
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 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 ) 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.
b ) Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create
a risk of injury and fire.
c ) 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.
d ) 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.
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.
Safety Instructions for Drain Cleaners
Before using the tool, test the residual current device
(RCD) provided with the supply cord to ensure it is
operating correctly. A properly operating RCD reduces risk of
electrical shock.
Only use extension cords that are protected by an RCD.
The RCD on the machine power cord will not prevent electrical
shock from the extension cords.
Only grasp the rotating cable with gloves recommended
by the manufacturer. Latex or loose fitting gloves or rags
can become wrapped around the cable and may result in
serious personal injury.
Do not allow the cutter to stop turning while the cable is
turning. This can overstress the cable and may cause twisting,
kinking or breaking of the cable and may result in serious
personal injury.
Use latex or rubber gloves inside the gloves
recommended by the manufacturer, goggles, face
shields, protective clothing, and respirator when
chemicals, bacteria or other toxic or infectious
substances are suspected to be in a drain line. Drains
may contain chemicals, bacteria and other substances that
may cause burns, be toxic or infectious or may result in other
serious personal injury.
Practice good hygiene. Do not eat or smoke while
handling or operating the drain cleaner. After handling
or operating drain-cleaning equipment, use hot, soapy
water to wash hands and other body parts exposed
to drain contents. This will help reduce the risk of health
hazards due to exposure to toxic or infectious material.
Only use the drain cleaner for the recommended
drain sizes. Using the wrong drain cleaner can lead to
twisting, kinking or breaking of the cable and may result in
personal injury.
Additional Safety Rules for Drain Cleaner
Stop the tool immediately if the cable binds and stops. The
cable can twist, kink or break if overstressed.
Inspect cable for wear and damage before use.
If the cable is worn or damaged, replace the cable before using
the drain cleaner. Refer to Optional Accessories.
Do not twist, kink or over bend cables. A broken cable may
result in serious personal injury.
The drain cleaning process can damage floors and other
surfaces and can be messy. Use appropriate protective covers
to prevent damage and hazards to surrounding area. The
front of the drain cleaner should be no farther than 15 cm (6")
from drain opening. If not possible, use additional pipe and
fittings to extend the drain. Exposing more than 15 cm (6")
of cable can cause twisting, kinking, breaking or whipping of
the cable.
This tool is intended to be used by a single operator, so that
they alone are able to control feed and rotation of the cable.
If the cable stops rotating, the user must immediately release
the trigger to prevent twisting, kinking, breaking or whipping
of the cable.
Operate the drain cleaner in reverse rotation only as described
in this manual. Running the tool in reverse for extended
periods can cause damage to the cable.
Do not pull the trigger with the end of the cable outside of
the pipe 5
Residual Risks
In spite of the application of the relevant safety regulations
and the implementation of safety devices, certain residual risks
cannot be avoided. These are:
• Impairment of hearing.
• Risk of personal injury due to flying particles.
• Risk of burns due to accessories becoming hot
during operation.
• Risk of personal injury due to prolonged use.
Electrical Safety
The electric motor has been designed for one voltage only.
Always check that the battery pack voltage corresponds to the
voltage on the rating plate. Also make sure that the voltage of
your charger corresponds to that of your mains.
Your DeWALT charger is double insulated in
accordance with EN60335; therefore no earth wire
is required.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a
specially prepared cord available through the DeWALT
service organisation.
Mains Plug Replacement
(U.K. & Ireland Only)
If a new mains plug needs to be fitted:
• Safely dispose of the old plug.
• Connect the brown lead to the live terminal in the plug.
• Connect the blue lead to the neutral terminal.
WARNING: No connection is to be made to the
earth terminal.
Follow the fitting instructions supplied with good quality plugs.
Recommended fuse: 3 A.
Using an Extension Cable
An extension cord should not be used unless absolutely
necessary. Use an approved extension cable suitable for
the power input of your charger (see Technical Data). The
minimum conductor size is 1 mm2; the maximum length
is 30 m.
When using a cable reel, always unwind the cable completely.
DeWALT chargers require no adjustment and are designed to be
as easy as possible to operate.

may be removed from the exterior of the charger using a
cloth or soft non-metallic brush. Do not use water or any
cleaning solutions. Never let any liquid get inside the tool;
never immerse any part of the tool into a liquid.
Hot/Cold Pack Delay*
*The red light will continue to blink, but a yellow indicator light
will be illuminated during this operation. Once the battery pack
has reached an appropriate temperature, the yellow light will
turn off and the charger will resume the charging procedure.
The compatible charger(s) will not charge a faulty battery pack.
The charger will indicate faulty battery by refusing to light or by
displaying problem pack or charger blink pattern.
NOTE: This could also mean a problem with a charger.
If the charger indicates a problem, take the charger and battery
pack to be tested at an authorised service centre.
Battery Packs
Hot/Cold Pack Delay
When the charger detects a battery pack that is too hot or too
cold, it automatically starts a Hot/Cold Pack Delay, suspending
charging until the battery pack has reached an appropriate
temperature. The charger then automatically switches to the
pack charging mode. This feature ensures maximum battery
pack life.
A cold battery pack will charge at a slower rate than a warm
battery pack. The battery pack will charge at that slower rate
throughout the entire charging cycle and will not return to
maximum charge rate even if the battery pack warms.
The DCB118 charger is equipped with an internal fan designed
to cool the battery pack. The fan will turn on automatically
when the battery pack needs to be cooled. Never operate the
charger if the fan does not operate properly or if ventilation slots

DeWALT batteries comply with all applicable shipping
regulations as prescribed by industry and legal standards which
include UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous
Goods; International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous
Goods Regulations, International Maritime Dangerous Goods
(IMDG) Regulations, and the European Agreement Concerning
The International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR).
Lithium-ion cells and batteries have been tested to section 38.3
of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous
Goods Manual of Tests and Criteria.
In most instances, shipping a DeWALT battery pack will be
excepted from being classified as a fully regulated Class 9
Hazardous Material. In general, only shipments containing a
lithium-ion battery with an energy rating greater than 100 Watt
Hours (Wh) will require being shipped as fully regulated Class 9.
All lithium-ion batteries have the Watt Hour rating marked on
the pack. Furthermore, due to regulation complexities, DeWALT
does not recommend air shipping lithium-ion battery packs
alone regardless of Watt Hour rating. Shipments of tools with
batteries (combo kits) can be air shipped as excepted if the Watt
Hour rating of the battery pack is no greater than 100 Whr.
Regardless of whether a shipment is considered excepted
or fully regulated, it is the shipper's responsibility to consult
the latest regulations for packaging, labeling/marking and
documentation requirements.
The information provided in this section of the manual is
provided in good faith and believed to be accurate at the time
the document was created. However, no warranty, expressed or
implied, is given. It is the buyer’s responsibility to ensure that its
activities comply with the applicable regulations.
Transporting the FLEXVOLTTM Battery
The DeWALT FLEXVOLTTM battery has two modes: Use and
Use Mode: When the FLEXVOLTTM battery stands alone or is in
a DeWALT 18V product, it will operate as an 18V battery. When
the FLEXVOLTTM battery is in a 54V or a 108V (two 54V batteries)
product, it will operate as a 54V battery.
Transport Mode: When the cap is attached to the FLEXVOLTTM
battery, the battery is in Transport mode. Keep the cap for
When in Transport mode, strings
of cells are electrically
disconnected within the pack
resulting in 3 batteries with a
lower Watt hour (Wh) rating as compared to 1 battery with a
higher Watt hour rating. This increased quantity of 3 batteries
with the lower Watt hour rating can exempt the pack from
certain shipping regulations that are imposed upon the higher
Watt hour batteries.
For example, the Transport Example of Use and Transport Label Marking
Wh rating might indicate
3 x 36 Wh, meaning 3
batteries of 36 Wh each.
The Use Wh rating might
indicate 108 Wh (1 battery implied).
Storage Recommendations
1. The best storage place is one that is cool and dry away
from direct sunlight and excess heat or cold. For optimum
battery performance and life, store battery packs at room
temperature when not in use.
2. For long storage, it is recommended to store a fully charged
battery pack in a cool, dry place out of the charger for
optimal results.
NOTE: Battery packs should not be stored completely
depleted of charge. The battery pack will need to be recharged
before use.
