OPERATION

WARNING
To reduce the risk of injury,
always unplug tool before attaching or removing
accessories or making adjustments. Use only
specifi cally recommended accessories. Others
may be hazardous.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of injury, wear
safety goggles or glasses with side shields.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of injury,
keep hands and cord away from the bit and all
moving parts.
Selecting Action
These Hammer-Drills have two settings: drilling and
hammer-drilling.
1. For drilling, turn the hammer-drill lever towards
the drill symbol .
2. For hammer-drilling, turn the hammer-drill lever
towards the hammer symbol .
NOTE: To engage the hammering mechanism, main-
tain pressure on the bit. When pressure on the bit is
released, the hammering action will stop.
Using Forward/Reverse Lever
The forward/reverse lever can only be adjusted when
the trigger is not pressed. Always allow the motor to
come to a complete stop before using the forward/
reverse lever.
1. For forward (clockwise)
Forward
rotation, push the for-
ward/reverse lever to the
left (when viewed from
the back of the tool) as
Reverse
shown.
2. For reverse (counter-
clockwise) rotation, push the forward/reverse
lever to the right (when viewed from the back of
the tool) as shown. Allow the motor to come to a
full stop before reversing.
NOTE: When hammer-drilling, use the tool in forward
rotation (clockwise) only.
Selecting Speed
Allow the tool to come to a complete stop before
changing speeds. Changing speeds while the tool
is running could damage the tool.
1. For low speed (up to 1500 rpm), turn the speed
selector to position 1.
2. For high speed (up to 3500 rpm), turn the speed
selector to position 2.
Starting, Stopping & Controlling Speed
1. To start the tool, pull trigger.
2. To stop the tool, release trigger.
3. To vary the speed, increase or decrease pres-
sure to trigger. The further the trigger is pulled,
the greater the speed.
Locking Trigger
The lock button holds the trigger in the ON position
for continuous full speed use.
1. To lock the trigger, hold in the lock button while
pulling the trigger. Release the trigger.
2. To unlock the trigger, pull the trigger and release.
The lock button will pop out.

Operating
Position the tool, grasp the handles fi rmly and pull
the trigger. Always hold the tool securely using both
handles and maintain control. This tool has been
designed to achieve top performance with only mod-
erate pressure. Let the tool do the work.
If the speed begins to drop off when drilling deep
holes, pull the bit partially out of the hole while the
tool is running to help clear dust. Do not use water to
settle the dust since it will clog the bit fl utes and tend
to make the bit bind in the hole. If the bit should bind,
a built-in, non-adjustable slip clutch activates. If this
occurs, stop the tool, free the bit and begin again.
Operator Force
This hammer-drill features the Vibration Isolation
System to provide the operator with comfort without
sacrifi cing power or performance. The motor housing
is suspended independently from the switch handle.
Insulating elements absorb vibration when hammer-
drilling and drilling.
Ideal operator force compresses the handle slightly
and allows the tool to work aggressively while the
handle provides maximum vibration dampening.
Excessive operator force compresses the handle
too far and reduces the vibration dampening. Users
will be able to feel the difference and should adjust
the force to the handle accordingly.
APPLICATIONS
WARNING
To reduce the risk of electric
shock, check work area for hidden pipes and
wires before drilling.
Drilling in Wood, Composition Materials and
Plastic
When drilling in wood, composition materials and
plastic, select the drill operating mode. Start the drill
slowly, gradually increasing speed as you drill. Select
low speeds for plastics with a low melting point.
Drilling in Metal
When drilling in metal, select the drill operating mode.
Use high speed steel twist drills or hole saws. Use a
center punch to start the hole. Lubricate drill bits with
cutting oil when drilling in iron or steel. Use a coolant
when drilling in nonferrous metals such as copper,
brass or aluminum. Back the material to prevent
binding and distortion on breakthrough.
Drilling in Masonry
When drilling in masonry, select the hammer-drill
operating mode. Use high speed carbide-tipped
bits. Drilling soft masonry materials such as cinder
block requires little pressure. Hard materials like
concrete require more pressure. A smooth, even
fl ow of dust indicates the proper drilling rate. Do not
let the bit spin in the hole without cutting. Do not use
water to settle dust or to cool bit. Do not attempt to
drill through steel reinforcing rods. Both actions will
damage the carbide.

MAINTENANCE

WARNING
To reduce the risk of injury,
always unplug your tool before performing any
maintenance. Never disassemble the tool or try
to do any rewiring on the tool's electrical system.
Contact a service facility for ALL repairs.
Maintaining Tools
Keep your tool in good repair by adopting a regular
maintenance program. Before use, examine the gen-
eral condition of your tool. Inspect guards, switches,
tool cord set and extension cord for damage. Check
for loose screws, misalignment, binding of moving
parts, improper mounting, broken parts and any
other condition that may affect its safe operation.
If abnormal noise or vibration occurs, turn the tool
off immediately and have the problem corrected
before further use. Do not use a damaged tool. Tag
damaged tools "DO NOT USE" until repaired (see
"Repairs").
Under normal conditions, relubrication is not neces-
sary until the motor brushes need to be replaced. Af-
ter six months to one year, depending on use, return
your tool to a service facility for the following:
• Lubrication
• Brush inspection and replacement
• Mechanical inspection and cleaning (gears,
spindles, bearings, housing, etc.)
• Electrical inspection (switch, cord, armature,
etc.)
• Testing to assure proper mechanical and electrical
operation
WARNING
To reduce the risk of injury,
electric shock and damage to the tool, never
immerse your tool in liquid or allow a liquid to
fl ow inside the tool.
Cleaning
Clean dust and debris from vents. Keep the tool
handles clean, dry and free of oil or grease. Use only
mild soap and a damp cloth to clean your tool since
certain cleaning agents and solvents are harmful to
plastics and other insulated parts. Some of these
include: gasoline, turpentine, lacquer thinner, paint
thinner, chlorinated cleaning solvents, ammonia
and household detergents containing ammonia.
Never use flammable or combustible solvents
around tools.
Repairs
If your tool is damaged, return the entire tool to the
nearest service center.
ACCESSORIES
WARNING
To reduce the risk of in-
jury, always unplug the tool before attaching
or removing accessories. Use only specifi cally
recommended accessories. Others may be haz-
ardous.
