The vibration emission level given in this information sheet has
been measured in accordance with a standardised test given in
EN60335 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.

Fully Charged
Electronic Protection System
XR Li-Ion tools are designed with an Electronic Protection
System that will protect the battery pack against overloading,
overheating or deep discharge.
The tool will automatically turn off if the Electronic Protection
System engages. If this occurs, place the lithium-ion battery
pack on the charger until it is fully charged.
Wall Mounting
These chargers are designed to be wall mountable or to sit
upright on a table or work surface. If wall mounting, locate the
charger within reach of an electrical outlet, and away from a
corner or other obstructions which may impede air flow. Use
the back of the charger as a template for the location of the
mounting screws on the wall. Mount the charger securely using
drywall screws (purchased separately) at least 25.4 mm long
with a screw head diameter of 7–9 mm, screwed into wood to
an optimal depth leaving approximately 5.5 mm of the screw
exposed. Align the slots on the back of the charger with the
exposed screws and fully engage them in the slots.
Charger Cleaning Instructions
WARNING: Shock hazard. Disconnect the charger
from the AC outlet before cleaning. Dirt and grease
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
are blocked. Do not permit foreign objects to enter the interior
of the charger.

Transportation
WARNING: Fire hazard. Transporting batteries can
possibly cause fire if the battery terminals inadvertently
come in contact with conductive materials. When
transporting batteries, make sure that the battery
terminals are protected and well insulated from materials
that could contact them and cause a short circuit.
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
10
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 Transport.
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
shipping.
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.
Fuel Gauge Battery Packs (Fig. C)
Some DeWALT battery packs include a fuel gauge which
consists of three green LED lights that indicate the level of
charge remaining in the battery pack.
The fuel gauge is an indication of approximate levels of
charge remaining in the battery pack according to the
following indicators:
English
USE (without transport cap). Example: Wh rating
indicates 108 Wh (1 battery with 108 Wh).
TRANSPORT (with built-in transport cap). Example:
Wh rating indicates 3 x 36 Wh (3 batteries of 36 Wh).
75–100% charged
51–74% charged
< 50% charged
Pack needs to be charged
To actuate the fuel gauge, press and hold the fuel gauge button.
A combination of the three green LED lights will illuminate
designating the level of charge left. When the level of charge
in the battery is below the usable limit, the fuel gauge will not
illuminate and the battery will need to be recharged.
NOTE: The fuel gauge is only an indication of the charge left on
the battery pack. It does not indicate tool functionality and is
subject to variation based on product components, temperature
and end-user application.
Labels on Charger and Battery Pack
In addition to the pictographs used in this manual, the labels
on the charger and the battery pack may show the following
pictographs:

Mowing Tips
WARNING: ALWAYS INSPECT AREA WHERE MOWER
IS TO BE USED AND REMOVE ALL STONES, STICKS,
WIRE, BONES, AND OTHER DEBRIS WHICH MIGHT BE
THROWN BY THE ROTATING BLADE.
WARNING: Mow across the face of slopes, never up-anddown. Exercise extreme caution when changing direction
on slopes. Do not mow excessively steep slopes. Always
maintain good footing.
1. Release bail handle to turn mower “OFF” when crossing any
gravel area (stones can be thrown by the blade).
2. Set mower at highest cutting height when mowing in
rough ground or in tall weeds. Removing too much grass at
one time can cause the motor to be overloaded and to stop.
Refer to Troubleshooting Section.
3. If a grass collection bag 12 is used during the fast growing
season, the grass may tend to clog up at the discharge
opening. Release bail handle to turn mower off, remove
the safety key and battery packs. Remove the catcher and
shake the grass down to the back end of the bag. Also clean
out any grass or debris which may be packed around the
discharge opening. Replace the grass catcher.
4. If mower should start to vibrate abnormally, release bail
handle to turn mower off, remove the safety key and battery
packs. Check immediately for cause. Vibration is a warning
of trouble. Do not operate mower until a service check
has been made. Refer to troubleshooting section in this
manual.
5. For best cutting results, keep blade sharpened
and balanced.
6. Inspect and thoroughly clean mower after each use as a
deck with caked grass will degrade performance.
7. ALWAYS RELEASE BAIL HANDLE TO TURN MOWER
OFF, REMOVE SAFETY KEY AND BATTERY PACKS WHEN
LEAVING IT UNATTENDED EVEN FOR A SHORT PERIOD
OF TIME.
The following suggestions will help you
to obtain optimum run time from your
cordless mower:
• Slow down in areas where the grass is especially long
or thick.
14
• Avoid mowing when the grass is wet from rain or
dew soaked.
• Cut your lawn frequently, especially during high
growth periods.
NOTE: It is recommended that your mower be recharged
after use to prolong the battery life. Frequent charging
will not harm your battery, and will ensure that the
battery is fully charged and ready for its next use. Storing
battery not fully charged will shorten battery life.

Blade Sharpening
Cleaning
KEEP BLADE SHARP FOR BEST MOWER PERFORMANCE. A DULL
BLADE DOES NOT CUT GRASS CLEANLY.
• DCMW564 requires replacement blade DT20671.
The use of accessories not recommended in this manual
may be hazardous.
WARNING: Use gloves and proper eye protection while
removing, sharpening, and installing blade. Ensure that
safety key and battery packs are removed.
Sharpening the blade twice during a mowing season is usually
sufficient under normal circumstances. Sand causes the blade
to dull quickly. If your lawn has sandy soil, more frequent
sharpening may be required. REPLACE BENT OR DAMAGED
BLADE IMMEDIATELY.
When Sharpening the Blade
• Make sure blade remains balanced.
• Sharpen blade at the original cutting angle.
• Sharpen cutting edges on both ends of blade, removing
equal amounts of material from both ends.
To Sharpen Blade in a Vice (Fig. R)
1. Be sure the bail handle is released, the blade has stopped
and safety key and battery packs are removed before
removing the blade.
2. Remove blade from mower. See instructions for Removing
and Installing Blade.
3. Secure blade 29 in a vice 32 .
4. Wear proper eye protection and gloves and be careful not
to cut yourself.
5. Carefully file the cutting edges of the blade with a fine-tooth
file 33 or sharpening stone, maintaining the angle of the
original cutting edge.
6. Check balance of blade. See instructions for
Blade Balancing.
7. Replace blade on mower and tighten securely.
Blade Balancing (Fig. S)
Check balance of the blade 29 by placing centre hole in the
blade over a nail or round screwdriver 34 , clamped horizontally
in a vice 32 . If either end of the blade rotates downward, file
along the sharp edge of that dropping end. Blade is properly
balanced when neither end drops.
Lubrication
No lubrication is necessary. Do not oil the wheels. They have
plastic bearing surfaces which require no lubrication.
Release bail handle 5 to turn mower off, let the blade come
to a stop and then remove safety key. Clean out any clippings
which may have accumulated on the underside of the deck.
After several uses, check all exposed fasteners for tightness.
WARNING: Blow dirt and dust out of the main housing
with dry air as often as dirt is seen collecting in and around
the air vents. Wear approved eye protection and approved
dust mask when performing this procedure.
WARNING: Never use solvents or other harsh chemicals
for cleaning the non-metallic parts of the tool. These
chemicals may weaken the materials used in these parts.
Use a cloth dampened only with water and mild soap.
Never let any liquid get inside the tool; never immerse any
part of the tool into a liquid.
Preventing Corrosion
Fertilizers and other garden chemicals contain agents which
greatly accelerate the corrosion of metals. If you mow in areas
where fertilizers or chemicals have been used, the mower
should be cleaned immediately afterward as follows: Release
bail handle 5 to turn mower off and unplug safety key. Wipe all
exposed parts with a damp cloth.
