NOTE: The impact wrench will not run unless the direction
of rotation selector is pushed fully to the left or right.
Avoid running the impact wrench at low speeds for
extended periods of time. Running at low speeds un-
der constant usage may cause the product to become
overheated. If this occurs, cool the product by running it
without a load and at full speed.
INSTALLING AND REMOVING SOCKETS
See Figure 4, page i.
Use only sockets designed for impact wrenches. Always
select the correct size impact socket for nuts and bolts.
Using the wrong size socket may dam-
age the nut or bolt and cause the fastening torque to
be inaccurate or inconsistent.
Remove the battery pack from the tool.
Push the socket onto the anvil until it clicks into place.
To remove the socket, pull it away from the anvil.
OPERATING THE IMPACT WRENCH
See Figure 5, page i.
Proper fastening torque may be determined by the kind
of bolt, the size of the bolt, the material, or the workpiece.
It is helpful to perform a test operation to determine the
When servicing, use only identical
Craftsman replacement parts. Use of any other part
could create a hazard or cause product damage.
Always wear eye protection with side
shields marked to comply with ANSI Z87.1. Failure to
do so could result in objects being thrown into your
eyes, resulting in possible serious injury.
To avoid serious personal injury,
always remove the battery pack from the tool when
cleaning, performing any maintenance, or when
storing the tool.
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.
