electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
WORK AREA
„ Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches and dark areas invite accidents.
„ 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.
„ Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while
operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to
lose control.
TOOL USE AND CARE
„ Use clamps or other practical way to secure and support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the
work by hand or against your body is unstable and may
lead to loss of control.
„ Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your application. The correct tool will do the job better and safer at
the rate for which it is designed.
„ Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off. A
tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
„ Disconnect battery pack from tool or place the switch
in the locked or off position before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing the tool.
Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
„ Store idle tools out of reach of children and other
untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in the hands of
untrained users.
„ 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.
„ Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp
and clean. Properly maintained tools with sharp cutting
edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
„ Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts, and any other condition that may
affect the tool's operation. If damaged, have the tool
serviced before using. Many accidents are caused by
poorly maintained tools.
„ Use only accessories that are recommended by the
manufacturer for your model. Accessories that may be
suitable for one tool may create a risk of injury when used
on another tool.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
„ A battery operated tool 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.
„ Use battery operated tool only with specifically
designated battery pack. Use of any other batteries may
create a risk of fire.
„ Use battery only with charger listed.

OPERATION
BIT STORAGE
See Figure 14.
When not in use, the bit provided with this drill can be placed
in the storage area located on the rear of the drill.
WARNING:
Always wear eye protection marked to comply with
ANSI Z87.1. Failure to do so could result in dust,
shavings, or loose particles being thrown into your
eyes, resulting in possible serious injury.
DRILLING
See Figure 15.
When drilling hard smooth surfaces use a center punch to
mark desired hole location. This will prevent the drill bit from
slipping off center as the hole is started. However, the low
speed feature allows starting holes without center punching
if desired. To accomplish this, simply operate the drill at a
low speed until the hole is started.
The material to be drilled should be secured in a vise or
with clamps to keep it from turning as the drill bit rotates.
Hold tool firmly and place the bit at the point to be drilled.
Depress the switch trigger to start tool.
Move the drill bit into the workpiece applying only enough
pressure to keep the bit cutting. Do not force or apply side
pressure to elongate a hole.
Fig. 14
WARNING:
Be prepared for binding or bit breakthrough. When
these situations occur, drill has a tendency to grab
and kick opposite to the direction of rotation and
could cause loss of control when breaking through
material. If not prepared, this loss of control can
result in possible serious injury.
When drilling metals, use a 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.
If the bit jams in workpiece or if the drill stalls, release switch
trigger immediately. Remove the bit from the workpiece and
determine the reason for jamming.

WARNING:
We recommend that you use carbide-tipped bits and select
hammer mode when drilling in hard materials such as brick,
tile, concrete, etc.
We recommend that you select normal drilling mode when
drilling with twist drills, hole saws, etc. in steel and soft materials.

„
WOOD DRILLING
For maximum performance, use high speed steel bits
for wood drilling.
„
Turn mode selector ring on hammer drill to normal
drilling action.
„
Begin drilling at a very low speed to prevent the bit
from slipping off the starting point. Increase the speed
as the drill bit bites into the material.
„
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.
„
Do not lock the trigger on for jobs where your hammer
drill may need to be stopped suddenly.
For maximum performance, use high speed steel bits
for metal or steel drilling.
„
Turn mode selector on hammer drill to normal drilling
action.
„
Begin drilling at a very low speed to prevent the bit
from slipping off the starting point.
„
Maintain a speed and pressure which allows cutting
without overheating the bit. Applying too much pressure will:
-
Overheat the drill;
-
Wear the bearings;
-
Bend or burn bits; and
-
Produce off-center or irregular shaped holes.
When drilling large holes in metal, we recommend that
you drill with a small bit at first, then finish with a larger
bit. Also, lubricate the bit with oil to improve drilling
action and increase bit life.

MAINTENANCE
„
Open the chuck jaws and remove the hex key. Remove
the chuck screw by turning it in a clockwise direction.
See Figure 18.
Note: The screw has left hand threads.
Insert the hex key in the chuck and tighten chuck jaws
securely. Tap sharply with a mallet in a counterclockwise direction. This will loosen the chuck on the spindle.
It can now be unscrewed by hand. See Figure 19.
To obtain the longest possible battery life, we suggest the
following:
„ Store and charge your batteries in a cool area.
Temperatures below 50°F or above 100°F will shorten
battery life.
„ Never store batteries in a discharged condition. Recharge
them immediately after they are discharged.
„ All batteries gradually lose their charge. The higher the
temperature the quicker they lose their charge. If you
store your tool for long periods of time without using it,
recharge the batteries every month or two. This practice
will prolong battery life.
TO RETIGHTEN A LOOSE CHUCK
The chuck may become loose on spindle and develop a
wobble. Periodically check chuck screw for tightness.
To tighten, follow these steps:
„ Lock the switch trigger by placing the direction of rotation selector in center position. See Figure 4.
„ Open the chuck jaws.
„ Insert the hex key into the chuck and tighten chuck jaws
securely. Tap the hex key sharply with a mallet in a clockwise direction. This will tighten the chuck on the spindle.
See Figure 17.
„ Open the chuck jaws and remove the hex key.
„ Tighten the chuck screw.
