OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

• The drill is turned ON and OFF by pulling
and releasing the trigger switch (1). The
farther the trigger is depressed, the higher
the speed of the drill.
• A forward/reverse control button (2)
determines the direction of the tool and
also serves as a lock off button.
• To select forward rotation, release the
trigger switch and depress the forward/
reverse control button to the left.
• To select reverse, depress the forward/
reverse control button the opposite
direction.
NOTE: The center position of the control
button locks the tool in the off position.
When changing the position of the control
button, be sure the trigger is released.
TORqUE CONTROL (FIGURE E)
This tool is fitted with a torque adjustment
collar (3) 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.
• For drilling in wood, metal and plastics, set
the collar to the drilling position symbol
• For screwdriving, set the collar to the
desired setting. If you do not yet know the
appropriate setting, proceed as follows:
• Set the collar 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.
