Depth gauge
The depth gauge is convenient for drilling holes of
uniform depth. Loosen the side grip and insert the depth
gauge into the hole in the side grip. Adjust the depth
gauge to the desired depth and tighten the side grip.
The depth gauge cannot be used at the position where
the depth gauge strikes against the gear housing.
Dust cup
Use the dust cup to prevent dust from falling over the
tool and on yourself when performing overhead drilling
operations. Attach the dust cup to the bit as shown in
the figure. The size of bits which the dust cup can be
attached to is as follows.

Hammer drilling operation
Set the action mode changing knob to the
Position the bit at the desired location for the hole, then
pull the switch trigger.
Do not force the tool. Light pressure gives best results.
Keep the tool in position and prevent it from slipping
away from the hole.
Do not apply more pressure when the hole becomes
clogged with chips or particles. Instead, run the tool at
an idle, then remove the bit partially from the hole. By
repeating this several times, the hole will be cleaned out
and normal drilling may be resumed.
There is a tremendous and sudden twisting force
exerted on the tool/bit at the time of hole break-
through, when the hole becomes clogged with
chips and particles, or when striking reinforcing
rods embedded in the concrete. Always use the
side grip (auxiliary handle) and firmly hold the tool
by both side grip and switch handle during
operations. Failure to do so may result in the loss
of control of the tool and potentially severe injury.
Eccentricity in the bit rotation may occur while operating
the tool with no load. The tool automatically centers
itself during operation. This does not affect the drilling
Blow-out bulb (optional accessory)
After drilling the hole, use the blow-out bulb to clean the
dust out of the hole.
