Important! Read the user instructions carefully before use. Save them for future reference. (Translation of the original instructions).
Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Failure to follow the warnings and instructions 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.
SAFETY IN THE WORK AREA
- Keep the work area clean and well lit. Dark and cluttered work areas increase the risk of accidents and injuries.
- Do not use power tools in explosive environments, such as in the vicinity of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools produce sparks that can ignite dust and fumes.
- Keep children and onlookers at a safe distance when working with a power tool. You can lose control of the tool if you are distracted.
- The plug on the power tool must match the power point. Never modify the plug in any way. Never use adapters with earthed power tools. Intact plugs and matching outlets reduce the risk of electric shock.
- Avoid body contact with earthed surfaces such as pipes, radiators, cookers and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed.
- Do not expose power tools to rain or moisture. There is a greater risk of electric shock if water gets into a power tool.
- Be careful with the power cord. Never use the power cord to carry or pull the power tool, or to pull out the plug from the mains. Keep the power cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges and moving parts. Damaged or tangled power cords increase the risk of electric shock.
- When you use a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord intended for outdoor use. Using cords intended for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
- If you have to use a power tool in damp conditions, use a mains connection protected by a residual current device RCD. Using an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
- Stay alert, pay attention to what you are doing, and use your common sense when working with power tools. Never use power tools if you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention when using a power tool can result in serious personal injury.
- Use safety equipment. Always wear safety glasses. The correct use of safety equipment such as a dust filter mask, non-slip safety shoes, helmets and ear protection, reduces the risk of personal injury.
- Avoid accidental starting. Check that the power switch is in the OFF position before connecting to the mains and/or the battery, or lifting/carrying the tool. Carrying a power tool with your finger on the switch, or connecting a tool to the mains when the switch is pressed, increases the risk of accidents.
- Remove all Allen keys/spanners etc. before switching on the power tool.
- A spanner left in a rotating part of the power tool can result in personal injury.
- Do not overreach. Always maintain a firm footing and good balance. This will ensure you have better control over the tool in unexpected situations.
- Wear suitable clothing. Do not wear loose-fitting clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose-fitting clothing, jewellery and long hair can get caught in moving parts.
- If dust extraction and dust collection equipment is available, this should be connected and used correctly. The use of such devices can reduce the risk of dust-related problems.
- Hold the power tool by the insulated grips when working in areas where the drill can come into contact with concealed electrical cables or its own power cord.
- If the drill comes into contact with a live wire, unprotected metal parts on the tool can give the user an electric shock.
USING AND LOOKING AFTER POWER TOOLS
- Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for the planned work. The correct power tool will work better and more safely when used with the load for which it was designed.
- Do not use the tool if it cannot be switched on and off with the power switch. Power tools that cannot be controlled with the power switch are dangerous and must be repaired.
- Unplug the plug from the mains and/or remove the battery from the power tool before making any adjustments, replacing accessories or putting the tool away. These safety precautions reduce the risk of accidently starting the power tool.
- Store power tools out of the reach of children when not in use. Never allow anyone who is unfamiliar with the power tool and these instructions to use the tool.
- Power tools are dangerous in the hands of inexperienced users.
- Keep the power tool properly maintained. Check that moving parts are not misaligned, jammed or loose, and that there are no other factors that could affect the safe use of the tool. If the power tool is damaged, it must be repaired before being used again. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
- Make sure that cutting tools are sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to jam and are easier to control.
Make sure that the power tool is serviced by qualified technicians that only use identical spare parts. This will ensure that the power tool remains safe to use.
HAMMER SAFETY WARNINGS
- Wear ear protectors. Exposure to noise can cause hearing loss.
- Use auxiliary handle(s), if supplied with the tool. Loss of control can cause personal injury.
- Hold power tool by insulated gripping surfaces, when performing an operation where the cutting accessory may contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Cutting accessory contacting a “live” wire may make exposed metal parts of the power tool “live” and could give the operator an electric shock.
REDUCTION OF NOISE AND VIBRATIONS
- Plan the work so that exposure to heavy vibrations is spread over a longer period.
- To reduce noise and vibrations when in use, limit the time the tool is in use, and use low-power/vibration mode and suitable safety equipment.
- Take the following precautions to minimise the risks of exposure to vibrations and/or noise:
- Only use the tool in accordance with these instructions.
- Check that the tool is in good condition.
- Use accessories in good condition, and which are suitable for the purpose.
- Keep a firm grip on the handles/grips.
- Maintain and lubricate the tool in accordance with these instructions.

The declared values for vibration and noise, which have been measured according to a standardized test method, can be used to compare different tools with each other and for a preliminary assessment of exposure. The measurement values have been determined in accordance
with EN 60745-2-6:2010.
The actual vibration and noise level when using tools may differ from the specified maximum value, depending on how the tool is used and the material. It is therefore necessary to determine which safety precautions are required to protect the user, based on an estimate of exposure in actual operating conditions (taking into account all stages of the work cycle, e.g. the time when the tool is switched off and when it is idling, in addition to the start-up time).
Powerful machine with three function modes for stripping concrete, metal and wood. Hammer drill mode, chisel with free rotation and chisel with rotation stop. SDS-Max holder for quick and tool-free changing of drills or chisels. The handle is vibration damping and has soft grips for optimum control. A safety switch is activated if the tool fastens. Supplied with the following accessories: Pointed chisel (18×320 mm) Flat chisel (18×320 mm) Three drills (16/18/22×320 mm)
- SOS-MAX quick chuck
- Safety clutch
- Power switch
- Status light
- Support handle
- Gear housing
- Check that the mains voltage corresponds to the rated voltage on the type plate.
- The plug must be plugged into a correctly installed and earthed power point.
- Check that the power switch is switched off. If the plug is plugged in when the power switch is in the ON position the hammer drill will start to move, which can cause serious personal injury.
- An extension cord must have a cross-sectional wire area to match the power supply to the hammer drill. Do not use longer than necessary extension cords.
The support handle can be placed on either side, which makes it easy to handle the hammer drill in different positions. Screw on the support handle clockwise and firmly tighten. Remove the support handle by turning it anticlockwise.NOTE: Always use the support handle and hold the hammer drill firmly with both hands.
Percussion function only
Percussion drill function
- The drill is not centered when the hammer drill is run with no load. This does not affect the precision of the drill hole, in that the drill is automatically centred when drilling.
- The chuck is maintenance-free. The dust protector prevents dust penetrating the hammer drill when in use.
Assembly and Dismantling
Clean and lightly lubricate the shank of the drill (1). Put the drill in the chuck (2) by twisting it (3) until it locks in place. The drill shank locks automatically. Pull on the drill to check that it is properly in place. Pull back the chuck sleeve and take out the drill.
HOW TO USE
When starting the product there may be a temporary voltage drop in the mains supply, which could affect other equipment. Such interference does not normally occur if the impedance in the mains supply Zmax is less than 0.195 ohm. Contact your electricity supplier for more information.
- Plug the plug into an earthed power point with the correct mains voltage. The plug is correctly plugged in and the hammer drill is ready to use when the status light (1) goes on. Press the power switch (2) to start the hammer drill.
- Place the tip of the drill against the surface and start the hammer drill. In some situations the tip of the drill must be pressed hard against the surface to activate the percussion action. This is not a malfunction, it is caused by the safety mechanism to prevent impact when there is no load.
- Hold the hammer drill firmly in both hands and use the weight of the tool to counteract the recoil. Do not press too hard, this will reduce its performance.
At low temperatures the viscosity of the grease can prevent the activation of the percussion function even though the motor is running. In which case, run the hammer drill for five minutes with no load to warm up the grease.
Switch off the hammer drill and pull out the plug before refilling with grease. Th reservoir holds enough grease for about 60-80 hours of work.
Check the grease level before use and refill when necessary.
- Run the hammer drill warm, if necessary, and check the grease level. Fill with grease if no grease can be seen when the hammer drill is held upright.
- To fill grease, remove the grease cap with the supplied spanner. Be careful not to damage the seal under the cap.
- Always check the grease level before use.
- Replace the cap after refilling.
- Always replace, or resharpen blunt bits. Blunt bits overload the motor and are less effective.
- Check at regular intervals that all screw unions on the hammer drill are properly tightened. Retighten if necessary, otherwise there is a risk of serious personal injury.
- Protect the motor windings from damage, oil and water.
