Use
Warning! Let the tool work at its own pace. Do not
overload.
Charging the battery (fig. A)
The battery needs to be charged before first use and
whenever it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs that were
easily done before.
The battery may become warm while charging; this is normal
and does not indicate a problem.
Warning! Do not charge the battery at ambient
temperatures below 10°C or above 40°C. Recommended
charging temperature: approximately. 24°C.
Note: The charger will not charge a battery if the cell
temperature is below approximately 10°C or above 40°C.
The battery should be left in the charger and the
charger will begin to charge automatically when the cell
temperature warms up or cools down.

(Original instructions)
To charge the battery (11), remove it from the tool and
insert it into the charger (12). The battery will only fit into
the charger in one way. Do not force. Be sure that the
battery is fully seated in the charger.
Plug in the charger and switch on at the mains.
The charging indicator (24) will flash green continuously
(slowly).
The charge is complete when the charging indicator (24)
lights green continuously. The charger and the battery can
be left connected indefinitely with the LED illuminated. The
LED will change to flashing green (charging) state as the
charger occasionally tops off the battery charge. The charging
indicator (24) will be lit as long as the battery is connected to
the plugged-in charger.
Charge discharged batteries within 1 week. Battery life
will be greatly diminished if stored in a discharged state.
Leaving the battery in the charger
The charger and battery pack can be left connected
indefinitely with the LED lit. The charger will keep the battery
pack fresh and fully charged.
Charger diagnostics
If the charger detects a weak or damaged battery, the
charging indicator (24) will flash red at a fast rate. Proceed
as follows:
Re-insert the battery (11).
If the charging indicator continues flashing red at a fast
rate, use a different battery to determine if the charging
process works properly.
If the replaced battery charges correctly, the original
battery is defective and should be returned to a service
centre for recycling.
If the new battery gives the same indication as the
original battery, take the charger to be tested at an
authorised service centre.
Note: It may take as long as 60 minutes to determine that
the battery is defective. If the battery is too hot or too
cold, the LED will alternately blink red, fast and slow, one
flash at each speed and repeat.
Switching on and off (fig. E)
For your safety, this tool is equipped with a double switching
system. This system prevents starting the tool inadvertently.
Switching on
Push the lock-off button (2) backward using your thumb
and at the same time squeeze the on/off switch (1).
Release the lock-off button (2).
Switching off
Release the on/off switch (1).
Warning! Never attempt to lock a switch in the on position.
