General working instructions
WARNING! This section takes up the basic
safety precautions for working with the

experience. If you encounter a situation
where you are uncertain how to proceed you
should ask an expert. Contact your dealer,
service agent or an experienced drilling

concentration during work, as serious personal injuries
can occur if the drill bit suddenly jams.
Keep your hands at a safe distance from the drill spindle

Keep an eye open for oil or water leakage. If water or oil
trickles out from the leakage hole on the top of the pinion
neck, the seals must be replaced.
