FORWARD / REVERSE SELECTOR SWITCH with POWER LOCK-OFF (Fig. 2)
The direction of bit rotation is forward or reverse and is controlled by a selector switch
located above and to the rear of the trigger switch. When holding the drill / driver in the
normal operating position, (and viewed from the back of the drill/driver see Fig 2 a, b, c),
the selector switch should be positioned (pushed) all the way to the RIGHT, for
FORWARD (b) or normal drilling / driving, and positioned (pushed) all the way to the LEFT
for REVERSE (c) to remove drill bits and back out screws.
The third position for the selector switch is located in the CENTER (a). This position keeps the
trigger switch from working, locking the power "OFF". Setting the selector switch in the "OFF" or
CENTER position helps reduce the possibility of accidental starting when the tool is not in use.
To prevent gear damage, always allow the chuck to come to
a complete stop before changing the direction of rotation.
