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.
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.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR POWER TOOLS
When using power tools, always observe the safety regulations applicable in your
country to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and personal injury. Read the following
safety instructions before attempting to operate this product. Keep these instructions in
a safe place.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury, user must read the instruction manual.
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.
SAVE ALL WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR
FUTURE REFERENCE
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mains-operated (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.
2
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.

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.
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.
Electrical Safety
The electric motor has been designed for one voltage range only. Always check that
the power supply corresponds to the voltage on the rating plate. 220–240 V AC
means your tool will operate on alternating current. Operation at a voltage outside this
range can cause loss of power and can result in overheating. All DEWALT tools are
factory tested; if this tool does not operate, check the power supply. Your DEWALT
tool is double insulated, therefore no earth wire is required.

Important Charging Notes
PROBLEM PACK OR CHARGER
1. Longest life and best performance can be obtained if the battery pack is charged
when the air temperature is between 18 ° – 24 °C (65 °F and 75 °F). DO NOT
charge the battery pack in an air temperature below +4 °C (+40 °F), or above
+40 °C (+105 °F). This is important and will prevent serious damage to the
battery pack.
2. The charger and battery pack may become warm to the touch while charging.
This is a normal condition, and does not indicate a problem. To facilitate the
cooling of the battery pack after use, avoid placing the charger or battery pack in
a warm environment such as in a metal shed or an uninsulated trailer.
3. A cold battery pack will charge at about half the rate of 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.
PROBLEM POWERLINE
Charge Indicators
This charger is designed to detect certain problems that can arise. Problems are
indicated by the red light flashing at a fast rate. If this occurs, re-insert the battery pack
into the charger. If the problem persists, try a different battery pack to determine if the
charger is working properly. If the new pack charges correctly, then the original pack is
defective and should be returned to a service center or other collection site for recycling.
If the new battery pack elicits the same trouble indication as the original, have the charger
and the battery pack tested at an authorized service center.

Keyless Single Sleeve Chuck (Fig. 3–5)
WARNING: Do not attempt to tighten drill bits (or any other accessory) by gripping
the front part of the chuck and turning the tool on. Damage to the chuck and personal
injury may result. Always lock off trigger switch and disconnect tool from power
source when changing accessories.
WARNING: Always ensure the bit is secure before starting the tool. A loose bit
may eject from tool causing possible personal injury.
Your tool features a keyless chuck (F) with one rotating sleeve for one-handed
operation of the chuck. To insert a drill bit or other accessory, follow these steps.
1. Turn tool off and disconnect tool from power source.
2. Grasp the black sleeve of the chuck with one hand and use the other hand to
secure the tool. Rotate the sleeve counterclockwise far enough to accept the
desired accessory.
3. Insert the accessory about 19 mm (3/4") into the chuck and tighten securely by
rotating the chuck sleeve clockwise with one hand while holding the tool with
the other. Your tool is equipped with an automatic spindle lock mechanism. This
allows you to open and close the chuck with one hand.
Be sure to tighten chuck with one hand on the chuck sleeve and one hand holding the
tool for maximum tightness.
To release the accessory, repeat steps 1 and 2 above.
OPERATION
WARNING: To reduce the risk of serious personal injury, place the forward/
reverse button in the lock-off position or turn tool off and disconnect battery pack
before making any adjustments or removing/installing attachments or accessories.
An accidental start-up can cause injury.

FUEL GAUGE BATTERY PACKS (FIG. 7)
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.
To actuate the fuel gauge, press and hold the fuel gauge button (L). 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 FIG. 7
of the charge left on the battery pack. It
does not indicate tool functionality and is
L
subject to variation based on product
components, temperature and end-user
application.
For more information regarding fuel gauge
battery packs, please contact Stanley
Black & Decker, 82 Taryn Drive, Epping,
VIC 3076 Australia or call 1800 444 224 or (NZ) 0800 339 258.
WARNING: Drill may stall if overloaded causing a sudden twist. Always expect the
stall. Grip the drill firmly to control the twisting action and avoid injury.
5. IF DRILL STALLS, it is usually because it is being overloaded or improperly used.
RELEASE TRIGGER IMMEDIATELY, remove drill bit from work, and determine
cause of stalling. DO NOT DEPRESS TRIGGER ON AND OFF IN AN ATTEMPT TO
START A STALLED DRILL — THIS CAN DAMAGE THE DRILL.
6. To minimize stalling or breaking through the material, reduce pressure on drill and
ease the bit through the last fractional part of the hole.
7. Keep the motor running when pulling the bit back out of a drilled hole. This will
help prevent jamming.

Drilling (Fig. 8)
NOTICE: If drilling thin material, use a wood “back-up” block to prevent damage to the
material.
1. Select the desired speed/torque range using the gear shifter to match the speed
and torque to the planned operation. Turn the collar (C) to the drill symbol.
2. Use sharp drill bits only. For MASONRY, such as brick, cement, cinder block, etc.,
use carbide-tipped bits rated for percussion drilling.
FIG. 8
3. Always apply pressure in a straight
line with the bit. Use enough pressure
to keep drill biting, but do not push
C
hard enough to stall the motor or
deflect the bit.
4. Hold tool firmly with both hands to
control the twisting action of the drill. If
model is not equipped with side handle,
grip drill with one hand on the handle
and one hand on the battery pack.
SCREWDRIVING
HAMMERDRILLING
Screwdriving (Fig. 9)
1. Select the desired speed/torque range using the gear shifter to match the speed
and torque to the planned operation.
NOTE: Use the lowest torque setting required to seat the fastener at the desired
depth. The lower the number, the lower the torque output.
2. Turn the torque adjustment collar (C) to the desired position.
3. Insert the desired fastener accessory into the chuck as you would any drill bit.
4. Make some practice runs in scrap or on unseen areas of the workpiece to
determine the proper position of the torque adjustment collar.
5. Always start with lower torque settings, then advance to higher torque settings to
avoid damage to the workpiece or fastener.

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.
1. Select the desired speed/torque range using the gear shifter to match the speed
and torque to the planned operation. Turn the collar (C) to the hammerdrill
symbol.
IMPORTANT: Use carbide-tipped or masonry bits rated for percussion drilling
only.
2. Drill with just enough force on the hammer to keep it from bouncing excessively
or "rising" off the bit. Too much force will cause slower drilling speeds,
overheating, and a lower drilling rate.
3. Drill straight, keeping the bit at a right angle to the work. Do not exert side
pressure on the bit when drillling as this will cause clogging of the bit flutes and a
slower drilling speed.
4. When drilling deep holes, if the hammer speed starts to drop off, pull the bit
partially out of the hole with tool still running to help clear debris from the hole.
NOTE: A smooth, even flow of dust from the hole indicates proper drilling rate.
Repairs
The charger and battery pack are not serviceable. There are no serviceable parts
inside the charger or battery pack.
To assure product SAFETY and RELIABILITY, repairs, maintenance and adjustment
(including brush inspection and replacement) should be performed by certified
service centers or other qualified service organizations, always using identical
