Tool / battery protection system
The tool is equipped with a tool/battery protection sys-
tem. This system automatically cuts off power to the
motor to extend tool and battery life.
The tool will automatically stop during operation if the
tool or battery are placed under one of the following
conditions. In some conditions, the indication lamp
lights up.

Overload protection

When the tool is operated in a manner that causes
it to draw an abnormally high current, the tool stops
automatically and the indicator lights up for about 60
seconds. In this situation, turn the tool off and stop the
application that caused the tool to become overloaded.
Then turn the tool on to restart.

Overheat protection

When the tool/battery is overheated, the tool stops auto-
matically and the battery indicator lights up for about 60
seconds. The tool does not start even if you turn the tool
on. In this situation, let the battery cool before turning
the tool on again.

Overdischarge protection

When the remaining battery capacity gets low, the
indicator blinks. By further use, the tool stops and the
indicator lights up for about 60 seconds. If you turn the
tool on, the motor runs again but stops soon. In this
situation, charge the battery cartridge.
NOTE: The timing, at which the lamp lights up,
depends on the temperature at work place and the
battery cartridge conditions.
