THE BATTERIES IN YOUR TOOLARE
NOT FULLY CHARGED AT THE FACTORY.
BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO CHARGE THEM, THOROUGHLY
READ ALL OF THE SAFETY
To charge your screwdriver, follow the steps below.
1. Plug the output cord of the charger into the socket in the bottom half of the screwdriver
handle as shown in Figure 1.
2. Plug the charger into any standard 120 Volt 60 Hz electrical outlet
3. Let the tool charge initially for g hours. After the initial charge, under normal usage, your
tool should be fully charged in 3 to 6 hours.
Z_WARNING: When disconnecting the tool from the charger, be sure to unplug the charger
from the outlet first then disconnect the charger cord from the too!. Do not use the tool while
it is connected to the charger.
1. After normal usage, your tool should be fully charged in 3 to 6 hours. If the batteries are
run-down completely, it may take up to 6 hours to become fully charged. Your tool was
sent from the factory in an uncharged condition. Before attempting to use it, it must be
charged for at least 9 hours.
2. DO NOT charge the batteries in an air temperature below 40°F (4,5 °C) or above 105°F
(+40,5 °C). This is important and will prevent serious damage to the batteries. Longest
life and best performance can be obtained if batteries are charged when air tempera-
ture 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 batteries do 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 tool to a
surrounding air temperature of 40°F (4,5 °C) or above 105°F (+40,5 °C). (4) tf the
receptacle and temperature are OK, and you do not get proper charging, take or send
the tool and charger to your local Black & Decker service center. See Tools Electric in
5. The tool should be recharged when it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs which
were easily done previously. DO NOT CONTINUE using product with its batteries in a
6. To prolong battery life, avoid leaving on charge for extended periods of time (over 30
days without use). Although overcharging is not a safety concern, it can significantly
reduce overall battery life.
7. The batteries will reach optimum performance after being cycled 5 times during normal
usage. There is no need to run the batteries down completely before recharging. Normal
usage is the best method of discharging and recharging the batteries.
Hold tool firmly to control its twisting action.
Tool may stall (if overloaded or improperly used) causing a twist. Always
expect the stall. Grip the drill firmly to control the twisting action and prevent loss of control
which could cause personal injury. If a stall does occur, release the trigger immediately and
determine the reason for the stall before re-starting.
Inserting an Accessory
• Hold the screwdriver upright as shown in Figure 2 and pull down on the chuck sleeve.
• Insert a hex shank accessory into the holder.
• Release the sleeve.
NOTE: tf bit does not fit into spindle, rotate the bit and re-insert it. Do not insert a bit tip
without a bit tip holder.
Removing an Accessory
• Hold the screwdriver upright as shown in Figure 2 and pull down on the chuck sleeve.
• Pull accessory straight out.
To turn the tool ON in a forward direction, press the top section of the rocker switch and the
tool will run. Release pressure from the switch and the tool will stop. To operate in reverse,
press the bottom section of the rocker switch. Without depressing the rocker switch the tool
is locked and will act as any conventional, non-powered screwdriver.
Angling the screwdriver
To convert the tool to an angled screwdriver, push in on the release button shown in Figure
3 and rotate the top portion of the tool until it locks into one of the remaining two positions.
z_Three Position Screwdriver Warnings:
• To avoid being pinched, hold the screwdriver as shown in Figure 3 when changing
• Do not use screwdriver as a pry bar in any position.
• To avoid screwdriver being turned on accidentally, do not carry in your pocket.
To set the tool's torque, rotate the adjustable torque collar as shown in Figure 4. There are
12 clutch settings in all. These are indicated by screw icons depicted on the torque collar.
For light duty work when using small screws, set the collar to one of the smaller screw icon
settings. Each click in a clockwise direction means an increase in the torque produced. The
highest position is depicted by a drill bit icon which should be used when drilhng with the
If you do not know the appropriate setting to use when tightening a screw,
begin at the lowest torque setting. If the clutch ratchets before the desired result is
achieved, increase the collar setting and continue tightening the screw. Repeat until you
reach the correct setting.
Two Speed Operation
The dual range feature of your screwdriver allows you to shift gears forgreater versatility. To
select low speed, (high torque setting), turn tool offand permit to stop. Push the slide switch
located on the top of the tool to the left. Use low speed for screwdriving operations. To select
the high speed, (low torque setting), turn tool off and permit to stop. Slide gear shifter fully to
the right. Use high speed for drilling operations.
To turn the light on, push the slide switch located on the underside of the screwdriver toward
the front of the tool.
Use sharp drill bits only.
Support and secure work properly, as instructed in the safety Instructions.
Use appropriate and required safety equipment, as instructed in the safety instructions.
Secure and maintain work area, as instructed in the safety instructions.
Run the drill very slowly, using light pressure, until the hole is started enough to keep
the drill bit from slipping out of it.
Apply pressure in a straight line with the bit. Use enough pressure to keep the bit biting
but not so much as to stall the motor or deflect the bit.
Hold the tool firmly with two hands to control its twisting action.
DO NOT CLICK THE TRIGGER OF A STALLED DRILL OFF AND ON IN AN ATTEMPT
TO START IT. DAMAGE TO THE DRILL CAN RESULT.
Minimize stalling on breakthrough
by reducing pressure and slowly drilling through last
part of hole.
Keep the motor running while pulling the bit out of a drilled hole This will help reduce
Make sure switch turns drill on and off.
It is important to support work properly and to hold the drill firmly to prevent
loss of control which could cause personal injury If you have questions on how to operate
tool, call: 1-800-544-6986.
Drilling in Wood
Holes in wood can be made with the same twist drill bits used for metal. These bits should
be sharp and should be pulled out frequently when drilling to clear chips from the flutes.
NOTE: This too! is not recommended for drilling in metal or masonry.
Use only mild soap and damp cloth to clean the tool. Never let any liquid get inside the tool;
never immerse any part of the tool into a liquid.
IMPORTANT: To assure product SAFETY and RELIABILITY, repairs, maintenance and
adjustment (other than those listed in this manual) should be performed by authorized
