1. Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered workbenches and dark areas
invite accidents.
2. 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.

Distractions can cause you to lose control.

medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in
serious personal injury.
4. DRESS properly. DO NOT wear loose clothing or jewelry. Pull back long hair. Keep
your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothing, or long hair

1. ALWAYS use clamps or other practical ways 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.
2. DO NOT force the tool. Use the correct tool and accessory bit for your application.
The correct tool and bit will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
3. DO NOT use the tool if trigger switch does not turn it "On" or "Off". Any tool that
cannot be controlled with the trigger switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
4. REMOVE the battery pack from the drill / driver or place the forward /reverse
selector switch with power lock-off in the "Lock Off" position before making
any adjustments, changing accessories or storing the tool. Such preventive
safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
5. STORE idle tools out of the reach of children and other untrained persons.

is not being used.
7. 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 the other. Shorting the battery terminals
together may together may cause burns to skin, sparks and/or a fire.
8. MAINTAIN tools with care. Keep cutting tools such as twist drill bits sharp and
clean. Properly maintained tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are
easier to use and control.
9. 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.
10. USE ONLY accessories that are recommended for this tool. Accessories that may
be suitable for one tool may become hazardous when used on another tool.

11. Keep the tool and its handle dry, clean and free from oil and grease. Always use
a clean cloth when cleaning. Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-based
products, or any strong solvents to clean your tool. Following this rule will reduce
the risk of loss or control and deterioration of the enclosure plastic.
