Declaration of Conformity


WARNING! Read all safety warnings, instructions, illustrations and specifications provided with this power tool. Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference. The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery operated (cordless) power tool.”


  1. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
  2. Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
  3. Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.


  1. Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
  2. Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
  3. Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
  4. Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
  5. When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
  6. If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD) protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.


  1. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
  2. Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective equipment such as a dust mask, nonskid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
  3. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off- position before connecting to power source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energising power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
  4. Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
  5. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
  6. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or longhair can be caught in moving parts.
  7. If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection facilities, ensure these are connected and properly used. Use of dust collection can reduce dust-related hazards.
  8. Do not let familiarity gained from frequent use of tools allow you to become complacent and ignore tool safety principles. A careless action can cause severe injury within a fraction of a second.


  1. Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for your application. The correct power tool will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
  2. Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
  3. Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or remove the battery pack, if detachable, from the power tool before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
  4. Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
  5. Maintain power tools and accessories. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any other condition that may affect the power tools operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools
  6. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control
  7. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in accordance with these instructions, taking into account the working conditions and the work to be performed. Use of the power tool for operations different from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.
  8. Keep handles and grasping surfaces dry, clean and free from oil and grease. Slippery handles and grasping surfaces do not allow for safe handling and control of the tool in unexpected situations.


  1. Recharge only with the charger specified by the manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with another battery pack.
  2. Use power tools only with specifically designated battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may create a risk of injury and fire.
  3. When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects, like paper clips, coins, keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects, that can make a connection from one terminal to another. Shorting the battery terminals together may cause burns or a fire.
  4. Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns.
  5. Do not use battery pack or tool that is damaged or modified. Damaged or modified batteries may exhibit unpredictable behaviour resulting in fire, explosion or risk of injury.
  6. Do not expose a battery pack or tool to fire or excessive temperature. Exposure to fire or temperature above 130 °C may cause explosion.
  7. Follow all charging instructions and do not charge the battery pack or tool outside the temperature range specified in the instructions. Charging improperly or at temperatures outside the specified range may damage the battery and increase the risk of fire.


  1. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical replacement parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
  2. Never service damaged battery packs. Service of battery packs should only be performed by the manufacturer or authorized service providers.


  1. Wear ear protectors when use impact drilling. Exposure to noise can cause hearing loss.
  2. Use auxiliary handle(s), if supplied with the tool. Loss of control can cause personal injury.
  3. Brace the tool properly before use. This tool produces a high output torque and without properly bracing the tool during operation, loss of control may occur resulting in person l injury.
  4. Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces, when performing an operation where the cutting accessory/fastener may contact hidden wiring. Cutting accessory/fastener contacting a “live” wire may make exposed metal parts of the power tool “live” and could give the operator an electric shock.
  5. Always check walls, floors and ceilings for hidden power cables and pipes.


  1. Do not connect the positive terminal and negative terminal of the battery to each other with any metal object (such as wire).
  2. Do not carry or store battery together with necklaces, hairpins or other metal objects.
  3. Do not pierce the battery with nails, strike the battery with a hammer, step on the battery or otherwise subject it to strong impacts or shocks.
  4. Do not solder directly onto the battery.
  5. Do not expose battery to water or salt water, or allow the battery to get wet.
  6. Do not disassemble or modify the battery.
  7. Do not place the battery in or near fire, on stoves or other high temperature locations. Do not place the battery in direct sunlight, or use or store the battery inside cars in hot weather.
  8. Do not place the battery in microwave ovens, high-pressure containers or on induction cookware.
  9. If you intend to store a battery for a period without use then store battery at room temperature (19°C to 25°C), charged to about 30 – 50% of capacity. When storing for very long periods boost charge the battery once per year to prevent over discharge.

The following information applies to professional users only but is good practice for all users:


The updated Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 1st October 2012 now also targets to reduce the risks associated with silica, wood and gypsum dusts. Construction workers are one of the at-risk groups within this because of the dust that they breathe: silica dust is not just a nuisance; it is a real risk to your lungs!
Silica is a natural mineral present in large amounts in things like sand, sandstone and granite. It is also commonly found in many construction materials such as concrete and mortar. The silica is broken into very fine dust (also known as Respirable Crystalline Silica or RCS) during many common tasks such as cutting, drilling and grinding. Breathing in very fine particles of crystalline silica can lead to the development of: Lung cancer Silicosis Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder/Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) And breathing in fine particles of wood dust can lead to the development of Asthma. The risk of lung disease is linked to people who regularly breathe construction dust over a period of time, not on the odd occasion.
To protect the lung, the COSHH Regulations sets a limit on the amount of these dusts that you can breathe (called a Workplace Exposure Limit or WEL) when averaged over a normal working day. These limits are not a large amount of dust: when compared to a penny it is tiny – like a small pinch of salt: This limit is the legal maximum; the most you can breathe after the right controls have been used.


  1. Reduce the amount of cutting by using the best sizes of building products. Use a less powerful tool e.g. a block cutter instead of angle grinder.
  2. Using a different method of work altogether – e.g. using a nail gun to direct fasten cable trays instead of drilling holes first.
  3. Please always work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that specially designed to filter out microscopic particles and use the dust extraction facility at all time.

For more information please see the HSE website: http://www.hse.gov.uk/construction or cis69 [PDF]

WARNING! Some dust particles created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drill and other construction jobs contain chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
  • Lead from lead-based paints.
  • Crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products.
  • Arsenic and chromium from chemically treated timber.
  • Your risk from these exposures varies, depending upon how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure to these chemicals:
  • Work in a well-ventilated area.
  • Work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that are specially designed to filter microscopic particles


The European Physical Agents (Vibration) Directive has been brought in to help reduce hand arm vibration syndrome injuries to power tool users. The directive requires power tool manufacturers and suppliers to provide indicative vibration test results to enable users to make informed decisions as to the period of time a power tool can be used safely on a daily basis and the choice of tool.


The declared vibration emission value should be used as a minimum level and should be used with the current guidance on vibration.
Calculating the actual period of use can be difficult and the HSE website has further information.

The declared vibration emission been measured in accordance with EN60745-1,EN60745-2-1 and may be used to compare one tool with another tool. The declared vibration emission value may also be used in preliminary assessment of exposure.

WARNING! The vibration emission value during actual use of the power tool can differ from the declared value depending on the ways in which the tool is used dependent on the following examples and other variations on how the tool is used:
  • How the tool is used and the materials being cut or drilled.
  • The tool being in good condition and well maintained.
  • Use the correct accessories for the tool and ensure they are sharp and in good condition.
  • The tightness of the grip on the handles.
  • The tool is being used as intended by its design and these instructions.
WARNING! Identify safety measures to protect the operator that are based on an estimation of exposure in the actual conditions of use (taking account of all parts of the operating cycle such as the times when the tool is switched off and when it is running idle in addition to the trigger time).

While working with this power tool, hand/arm vibrations occur. Adopt the correct working practices in order to reduce the exposure to vibration. This tool may cause hand-arm vibration syndrome if its use is not adequately managed.
Helping to minimise your vibration exposure risk. ALWAYS use sharp chisels, drills and blades. Maintain this tool in accordance with these instructions and keep well lubricated (where appropriate).
Avoid using tools in temperatures of 10ºC or less. Plan your work schedule to spread any high vibration tool use across a number of days.

NOTE: The use of other tools will reduce the users’ total working period on this tool.


All employees should be part of an employer’s health surveillance scheme to help identity any vibration related diseases at an early stage, prevent disease progression and help employees stay in work.

For impact drilling masonry and concrete

In screw driving mode, the torque can be adjusted by rotating the torque adjustment ring.
Higher number means higher torque. Select the setting as follows:
1-5 for driving small screws
6-10 for driving screws into soft material
11-15 for driving screws into soft and hard material
16-20 for driving screws into hard wood
21-24 for driving larger screws

The automatic spindle lock allows you to use it as a regular screwdriver. You can give an extra twist to firmly tighten a screw, loosen a very tight screw or continue working when the battery energy has expired. For manual screwdriver purposes, the chuck is automatically locked when the tool is off.

The LED work light (9) will illuminate when the trigger switch is depressed slightly, and will automatically turn off a short while after the trigger switch is released. This provides additional light on the surface of the workpiece for operation in lower light situations.

WARNING! Do not look directly into LED light.


When drilling into a hard smooth surface, use a centre punch to mark the desired hole location. This will prevent the drill bit from slipping off centre as the hole is started. Hold the tool firmly and place the tip of the bit at the point to be drilled. Depress the switch trigger to start the tool. Move the drill bit into the workpiece, applying only enough pressure to keep the bit rotating. Do not force or apply side pressure to elongate a hole.

WARNING! Tungsten carbide drill bits should always be used for concrete and masonry. When drilling in metal, only use HSS drill bits in good condition. Always use a magnetic bit holder (not included) when using short screwdriver bits. When screw-driving, apply a small quantity of liquid soap or similar to the screw threads to ease insertion.

Where possible, secure smaller work pieces to prevent them from moving during operation.
