GENERAL SAFETY RULES - FOR ALL BATTERY OPERATED TOOLS
WARNING! READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to follow all instructions
listed below, may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
• 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
• Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry the tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Replace damaged cords immediately. Damaged cords may create a fire.
• 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.
• 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,
• Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your hair, clothing , and
gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
• Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is in the locked or off position before inserting battery pack.
Carrying tools with your finger on the switch or inserting the battery pack into a tool with the switch on invites
• Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning the tool on. A wrench or a key that is left attached to a
rotating part of the tool may result in personal injury.
• Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing and balance enable better
control of the tool in unexpected situations.
• Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
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 preventative 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
• 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
edge 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.

• Tool service must be performed only by qualified repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed by
unqualified personnel may result in a risk of injury.
• When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement parts. Follow instructions in the Maintenance section
of this manual. Use of unauthorized parts or failure to follow Maintenance Instructions may create a risk of
shock or injury.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
• Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the cutting tool may contact
hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with a "live" wire will also make exposed metal parts of the tool "live"
and shock the operator.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities
contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these
• lead from lead-based paints,
• crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
• arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber. (CCA)
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your
exposure to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment, such
as those dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
The label on your tool may include the following symbols.

Safety Warnings and Instructions: Charging the Drill
1. This manual contains important safety and operating instructions.
2. Before using battery charger, read all instructions and cautionary markings on (1) battery charger, (2)
battery, and (3) product using battery.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of injury, charge only Black & Decker Power Packs. Other types of bat-
teries may burst causing personal injury and damage.
4. Do not expose charger to rain or snow.
5. Use of an attachment not recommended or sold by Black & Decker may result in a risk of fire, electric
shock, or injury to persons.
6. To reduce risk of damage to electric plug and cord, pull by plug rather than cord when disconnecting
7. Make sure cord is located so that it will not be stepped on, tripped over, or otherwise subjected to dam-
age or stress.
8. An extension cord should not be used unless absolutely necessary. Use of improper extension cord could
result in a risk of fire, electric shock or electrocution.
a. Two-wire cords can be used with 2-wire or 3-wire extension cords. Only round jacketed extension
cords should be used, and we recommend that they be listed by Underwriters Laboratories (U.L.). If the
extension is to be used outside, the cord must be suitable for outdoor use. Any cord marked for outdoor
use can also be used for indoor work. The letters "W" or "WA" on the cord jacket indicate that the cord
is suitable for outdoor use.
b. An extension cord must have adequate wire size (AWG or American Wire Gauge) for safety, and to pre-
vent loss of power and overheating. The smaller the gauge number of the wire, the greater the capacity
of the cable; that is, 16 gauge has more capacity than 18 gauge. When using more than one extension
to make up the total length, be sure each extension contains at least the minimum wire size.
Total Extension Cord Length (ft)
9. Use only the supplied charger when charging your drill. The use of any other charger could damage the
drill or create a hazardous condition.
10. Use only one charger when charging.
11. Do not attempt to open the charger or the drill. There are no customer serviceable parts inside. Return to
any authorized Black & Decker service center.
12. DO NOT incinerate the drill or battery packs even if they are severely damaged or completely worn out.
The batteries can explode in a fire.
13. Do not incinerate the batteries. They can explode in a fire. A small leakage of liquid from the battery cells
may occur under extreme usage, charging or temperature conditions. This does not indicate a failure.
However, if the outer seal is broken and this leakage gets on your skin:
a. Wash quickly with soap and water.
b. Neutralize with a mild acid such as lemon juice or vinegar.
c. If the battery liquid gets in your eyes, flush them with clean water for a minimum of 10 minutes and seek
immediate medical attention. MEDICAL NOTE: The liquid is a 25-35% solution of potassium hydroxide.
Charging the Power Pack
LL OTHER MODELS USE A
THE BATTERIES IN YOUR POWER PACK ARE NOT FULLY CHARGED AT THE FACTORY. BEFORE
ATTEMPTING TO CHARGE THEM, THOROUGHLY READ ALL OF THE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS.
The 3 hour charger is designed to use standard household 120 volt 60 Hz power.
1. Put the switch control lever in the center OFF position (Fig. 1) and remove power pack from the tool.
2. Plug the charger into any standard 120 Volts 60 Hz electrical outlet.
3. Insert the power pack into the charger and let it charge for 3 hours.
4. Remove pack from the charger and replace in tool.
Important Charging Notes
1. After normal usage, your power pack should be fully charged in 3 hours or less. If the power pack is run-
down completely, it may take up to 6 hours to become fully charged. Your power pack was sent from the
factory in an uncharged condition. Before attempting to use it, it must be charged for at least 3 hours.
2. DO NOT charge the power pack in an air temperature below 40°F or above 105°F. This is important and
will prevent serious damage to the power pack. Longest life and best performance can be obtained if the
power pack is charged when the air temperature is about 75°F.
3. While charging, the charger may hum and become warm to touch. This is a normal condition and does
not indicate a problem.
4. If the power pack does not charge properly—(1) Check current at receptacle by plugging in a lamp or
other appliance. (2) Check to see if receptacle is connected to a light switch which turns power off when
you turn out the lights. (3) Move charger and power pack to a surrounding air temperature of 40°F to
