Warning! Before assembly, remove the battery from the tool.
Fitting and removing the battery (fig. B)
To fit the battery (5), line it up with the receptacle on the
tool. Slide the battery into the receptacle and push until
the battery snaps into place.
To remove the battery, push the release button (9) while at
the same time pulling the battery out of the receptacle.
Fitting and removing a drill bit or screwdriver bit
This tool is fitted with a keyless chuck to allow for an easy
exchange of bits.
Grasp the rear half of the chuck (3) with one hand and use
your other hand to rotate the front half in the
counterclockwise direction, as viewed from the chuck end.
Insert the bit shaft (10) into the chuck.
Firmly tighten the chuck by holding the rear half of the
chuck and rotating the front portion in the clockwise
direction as viewed from the chuck end.
Warning! Let the tool work at its own pace. Do not overload.
Charging the battery (fig. A)
The battery needs to be charged before first use and
whenever it fails to produce sufficient power on jobs that were
easily done before. 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.
Note: The charger will not charge a battery if the cell
temperature is below approximately 10 °C or above 40 °C.
The battery should be left in the charger and the charger
will begin to charge automatically when the cell
temperature warms up or cools down.
To charge the battery (5), insert it into the charger (7). The
battery will only fit into the charger in one way. Do not
force. Be sure that the battery is fully seated in the
Plug in the charger and switch on at the mains.
The charging indicator (8) will blink.
The charge is complete when the charging indicator (8)
switches to continuously on. The charger and the battery can
be left connected indefinitely. The LED will switch on as the
charger occasionally tops up the battery charge.
Charge discharged batteries within 1 week. Battery life will
be greatly diminished if stored in a discharged state.
Leaving the battery in the charger
The charger and battery pack can be left connected with the
LED glowing indefinitely. The charger will keep the battery
pack fresh and fully charged.
Selecting the direction of rotation (fig. D)
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
(2) to the left.
To select reverse rotation, push the forward/reverse slider
to the right.
To lock the tool, set the forward/reverse slider into the
Selecting the torque
This tool is fitted with a collar to set the torque for various
screwdriving and drilling applications. Large screws and hard
workpiece materials require a higher torque setting than small
screws and soft workpiece materials. For the definition of the
symbol refer to the listing below.
For drilling in wood, metal and plastics, set the torque
adjustment collar (4) to the
For screwdriving, set the collar to the desired setting. If
you do not yet know the appropriate setting, proceed as
- Set the torque adjustment collar (4) to the lowest torque
- 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.
Select forward or reverse rotation using the forward/
reverse slider (2).
To switch the tool on, press the switch (1). The tool speed
depends on how far you press the switch.
To switch the tool off, release the switch.
Hints for optimum use
Always apply a light pressure in a straight line with the drill
Just before the drill tip breaks through the other side of the
workpiece, decrease pressure on the tool.
Use a block of wood to back up workpieces that may
