Residual risks.

Additional residual risks may arise when using the tool which
may not be included in the enclosed safety warnings. These
risks can arise from misuse, prolonged use etc.
Even with the application of the relevant safety regulations
and the implementation of safety devices, certain residual
risks can not be avoided. These include:
Injuries caused by touching any rotating/moving
u
parts.
Injuries caused when changing any parts, blades or
u
accessories.
Injuries caused by prolonged use of a tool. When
u
using any tool for prolonged periods ensure you take
regular breaks.
Impairment of hearing.
u
Health hazards caused by breathing dust developed
u
when using your tool (example:- working with wood,
especially oak, beech and MDF.)
Use
Warning! Let the tool work at its own pace. Do not overload.
Warning! Before drilling into walls, floors or ceilings, check for
the location of wiring and pipes.
Charging the battery (fig. A & F)
The battery needs to be charged before first use and
whenever it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs that were
easily done before. When charging the battery for the first
time, or after prolonged storage, it will only accept an 80%
charge. After several charge and discharge cycles, the battery
will attain full capacity. The battery may become warm while
charging; this is normal and does not indicate a problem.
Warning! Do not charge the battery at ambient temperatures
below 10 °C or above 40 °C. Recommended charging
temperature: approx. 24 °C.

Using the charger
To charge the battery (7), remove it from the tool and slide
u
the charger receptacle (10) onto the battery.
Plug in the charger (9).
u
The battery will become warm while charging. After approx.
3 hours of charging, the battery will be sufficiently charged for
use in regular applications. After approx. 8-10 hours of
charging, the battery will be fully charged.
Remove the charger receptacle from the battery.
u
Charger with charging plug
To charge the battery, make sure that it is fitted on the drill.
u
Insert the charger plug (8) into the connector.
u
Plug in the charger.
u
Switch on at the mains.
u
After normal use, a charging time of 3 hours will provide
sufficient power for most applications.
However, further charging for up to 6 hours could significantly
increase the use time, depending on the
battery and charging conditions.
Disconnect the tool from the charger.
u
Warning! Do not use the tool while it is connected to the charger.
Selecting the direction of rotation (fig. G)
For drilling and for tightening screws, use forward (clockwise)
rotation. For loosening screws or removing a jammed drill bit,
use reverse (counterclockwise) rotation.
To select forward rotation, push the forward/reverse slider
u
(2) to the left.
To select reverse rotation, push the forward/reverse slider
u
to the right.
To lock the tool, set the forward/reverse slider into the
u
centre position.
Selecting the operating mode or torque (fig. H)
This tool is fitted with a collar to select the operating mode and
to set the torque for tightening screws. Large screws and hard
workpiece materials require a higher torque setting than small
screws and soft workpiece materials. The collar has a wide
range of settings to suit your application.
For drilling in wood, metal and plastics, set the collar (3) to
u
the drilling position by aligning the symbol with the
marking (16).
For screwdriving, set the collar to the desired setting.
u
If you do not yet know the appropriate setting, proceed as
follows:
- Set the collar (3) to the lowest torque setting.
- Tighten the first screw.
- 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. Use this setting for the remaining screws.
