Checking the battery condition (fig. E)
This tool is fitted with a battery charge indicator, which allows
you to check the condition of the battery.
Press and hold down the button (15).
Check to see how many of the lights (6) are on:
1 light
2 lights
3 lights
Selecting the direction of rotation (fig. F)
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
centre position.
Selecting the torque (fig. G)
This tool is fitted with a unique 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. The collar
has a wide range of settings represented by symbols to suit
your application. For the definition of the symbol refer to the
listing below.
For drilling in wood, metal and plastics, set the collar (3) to
the symbol corresponding to the appropriate drilling
application by aligning the symbol with the marking (16).
For screwdriving, set the collar to the desired setting. If
you do not yet know the appropriate setting, proceed as
- 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.

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 splinter.
Use spade bits when drilling large diameter holes in wood.
Use HSS drill bits when drilling in metal.
Use masonry bits when drilling in soft masonry.
Use a lubricant when drilling metals other than cast iron
and brass.
Make an indentation using a centre punch at the centre of
the hole to be drilled in order to improve accuracy.
Torque range: low torque for
small screws and high torque
for large screws
