WORK AREA SAFETY

• 

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.

ELECTRICAL SAFETY

• 

Power tool plugs must match the outlet

Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any 

adaptor plugs in any earthed (grounded) power tools.  Double insulated tools are equipped with a polarized 
plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not 
fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install a polarized 
outlet. Do not change the plug in any way. Double insulation eliminates the need for the three wire grounded 
power cord and grounded power supply system.

• 

Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions

Water entering a power tool will 

increase the risk of electric shock.

• 

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 

grounded.

• 

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 cords increase the risk of electric shock.

• 

When operating a power tool outside, use an extension cord suitable for 
outdoor use

These cords are rated for outdoor use and reduce the risk of electric shock.

• 

Do not use AC only rated tools with a DC power supply

While the tool may appear to 

work. The electrical components of the AC rated tool are likely to fail and rate a hazard to the operator. 

PERSONAL SAFETY

• 

Stay alert

watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use 

tool while tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while operating 
power tools may result in serious personal injury.

• 

Use safety equipment

Always wear eye protection. Safety equipment such as dust mask, non-skid 

safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.

• 

Dress properly

Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from 

moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be caught in moving parts. Air vents may cover moving 
parts and should be avoided. 

• 

Avoid accidental starting

ensure the switch is in the off position before plugging in. Carrying power 

tool with your finger on the switch or plugging in power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.

• 

remove any adjusting keys or wrenches before turning the power tool on

wrench or key that is left attached to a rotating part of the tool may result in personal injury.

 

• 

Do not overreach

Maintain proper footing and balance at all times. Loss of balance can cause an 

injury in an unexpected situation

• 

If devices are provided for connection of dust extraction and collection 
facilities, ensure these are connected and properly used

use of these devices can 

reduce dust related hazards.

 

• 

Do not use a ladder or unstable support

Stable footing on a solid surface 

enables better 

control 

of the tool in unexpected situations. 

• 

Keep tool handles dry, clean and free from oil and grease.

 

Slippery handles cannot 

safely control the tool.

TOOL USE AND CARE

• 

Secure the workpiece

use clamp or other practical way to hold the workpiece to a stable platform. 

Holding the workpiece by hand or against your body is unstable and may lead to loss of control.

Use the correct power tool for the job

Don’t force the tool or attachment to do a job for which 

it is not designed.

• 

Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or off.

 

Any tool that cannot be controlled with 

the switch is dangerous and must be repaired or replaced by an authorized service center

• 

Turn power tool off, and disconnect the plug

 

from the power source and/or battery pack 

from the power tool before making any adjustments, changing the accessories, or storing the tools

Such 

preventive safety measures reduce the risk of an accidental start up which may cause personal injury

.

• 

Store idle tool out of reach of children and other inexperienced persons

.  

It is 

dangerous in the hand of untrained users. 

•

EXTENSION COrDS

Grounded tools require a three wire extension cord

.

 

 Double insulated tools can use 

either a two or three wire extension cord.  As the distance from the power supply outlet increases, you must use a 
heavier gauge extension cord.  using extension cords with inadequately sized wire causes a serious drop in voltage, 
resulting in loss of power and possible tool damage.  Refer to the table shown below to determine the required 
minimum wire size.
The smaller the gauge number of the wire, the greater the capacity of the cord.  for example: a 14-gauge cord 
can carry a higher current than a 16-gauge cord.  When using more than one extension cord to make up the total 
length, be sure each cord contains at least the minimum wire size required.  If you are using one extension cord for 
more than one tool, add the nameplate amperes and use the sum to determine the required minimum wire size.

Guidelines for Using Extension Cords

•  If you are using an extension cord outdoors, be sure it is marked with the suffix “W-A” (“W” in Canada) to 

indicate that it is acceptable for outdoor use.

•  Be sure your extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition.  Always replace a damaged 

extension cord or have it repaired by a qualified person before using it.

•  Protect your extension cords from sharp objects, excessive heat, and damp or wet areas.

Always Check that the power supply corresponds to the 

voltage on the ratings plate.
•  Connect the charger adaptor (1) and the charger stand (3). 
•  Plug the charger adaptor (1) into a 120 Volt AC power source. The 

green light on the charger stand (3) will illuminate, indicating the 
charger is powered. 

•  Slide the battery (2) all the way into the charger stand (3) until 

it locks in place with a click, as shown in fIG 3. The red light on 
the charger stand will illuminate, indicating that the battery is 
charging.

•  The red light will go off after charging is complete. 
•  Batteries may become warm while charging. This is normal.
•  If battery is hot after continuous use in the tool, allow it to cool 

down to room temperature before charging. This will extend the 
life of your batteries.

NOTE

:

 

It takes approximately 3-5 hours to charge up a completely discharged battery.

  

 

WArNING: 

Always disconnect the battery pack from the tool or place the switch 

in the locked or off position before any assembly, adjustments or changing accessories.

TRIGGER SWITCH ACTION

•   Turn the drill on by depressing the trigger switch (4-fIG 1).
•   Depressing the switch further will produce more speed and torque. 
•   use the reversing switch (5-fIG 1) to change the direction of rotation of the drill. 
•   The reversing switch has three positions: forward, Reverse, and Off (middle).
•   Always check the rotation before beginning your work.

TWO-SPEED GEAR SWITCH (FIG 4)

•   Slide the speed gear switch (A) to choose between position 1 for 

high speed range (0-1,300 RPM) and position 2 for low speed 
range (0-350 RPM).

•   The low speed range has more power and torque. use the low 

speed range for high power and torque applications.

•   The high speed range is for fast drilling or driving applications. 

LED WORK LIGHT

Your tool has a built-in LeD work light (6-fIG 1) to illuminate 
the work area. When you turn on the tool, the work light will 
automatically turn on.

BATTERY POWER INDICATOR

Your tool has a built-in battery power indictor (8-fIG 1) right above the trigger switch. It has three colored lights-
Green, Yellow and Red. Depress the trigger switch slightly to check the battery power level. When all three lights 

illuminate

, it indicates the battery is at full power. The battery is at half full power when only the yellow and 

red lights 

illuminate.

 When the red light illuminates only, it indicates that the battery is at low power level and 

requires immediate charging. 

ELECTRIC BRAKE

This drill is equipped with an electric brake. Like the torque settings, an electric brake provides you with another 
element of control during various operations.  If the tool consistently fails to quickly stop after trigger switch 
release, have a qualified serviceman examine the tool.

CHUCK (FIG 5)

•  Your drill is equipped with a single sleeve keyless chuck (1), so 

you can quickly change bits with no extra tools required. 

•  To  install  bits,  place  the  reversing  switch  in  the  Off  (middle) 

position. Rotate the chuck body counter-clockwise to open the 
chuck jaws (2) to a point where the opening is slightly larger 
than the bit size you intend to use. Insert the bit. Tighten the 
chuck jaws by rotating the chuck body clockwise to secure the 
bit in place.

NOTE

Always make sure that bits are seated firmly between 

the  chuck  jaws.  Never  attempt  to  operate  a  bit  that  is  wobbly, 
unstable, or broken.
•  To remove bits,  place the reversing switch in the Off (middle) 

position.  Loosen  the  chuck  jaws  by  rotating  the  chuck  body 
counter-clockwise. Remove the bit. 

 

WArNING:

 

Make sure the drill bit is inserted straight into the chuck jaws. Do 

not insert the drill bit into the chuck jaws at an angle and tighten. This could cause the 
drill bit to be thrown from the drill, resulting in possible serious personal injury. 

CLUTCH (TORQUE) SETTINGS

•  During screw driving applications, you can adjust the maximum torque that the drill will produce. 
•  This feature can be used to prevent the stripping and breaking of screws, or to set a series of screws to a 

depth that fits your project.

•  Set the clutch ring (2-fIG 1) to settings from 1 (lightest) to 22 (heaviest). Setting 22 (  ) is direct drive 

(torque is not limited) and used primarily for drilling operations.

•  In general, you will find the lower settings more useful with smaller screws and the higher settings more 

useful for larger screws.

APPLICATION

GENERAL SCREWDRIVING

1.  Clamp your workpiece. 
2.  Drill pilot holes for larger screws or when driving screws into hardwoods.
3.  exert enough pressure to start the screw and keep it turning. Do not force the screw. Let the tool do the work.
4.  use a speed that will not strip the screw head or break the screw. Maintain your balance.

GENERAL DRILLING

1.  Clamp your workpiece. use torque setting 22 (   ) then exert enough pressure to start the drill bit and keep 

drilling. Do not force or stall the bit. Don’t bend or twist the bit. Let the tool and the drill bit do the work.

2.  Maintain your balance and be prepared for binding and for bit breakthrough.

 

WArNING:

 

Forcing a drill bit, bending or twisting the bit, or failure to maintain 

balance in case of binding and breakthrough can result in serious personal injury.

3.  Chattering or vibration may indicate you need a finer bit or higher speed. If the bit overheats or clogs, it may 

indicate you need a coarser bit or slower speed setting. Replace bits when they become dull. Dull bits will 
produce poor results and may overheat the drill.

4.  use a coating of light oil when drilling into metal to help cool the bit, increase drilling action and extend drill bit 

life.

MAINTENANCE

CLEANING

Avoid using solvents when cleaning plastic parts. Most plastics are susceptible to damage from various types of 
commercial solvents and may be damaged by their use. use clean cloths to remove dirt, dust, oil, grease, etc.

 

WArNING: 

Do not at any time let brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-based 

products, penetrating oils, etc., come in contact with plastic parts. Chemicals can 
damage, weaken or destroy plastic which may result in serious personal injury.

electric tools used on fiberglass material, wallboard, spackling compounds, or plaster are subject to accelerated
