Safety Precautions

  • Do not use dull or damaged bits and accessories:
  • Always wear safety goggles or eye protection when using this tool. Use a dust mask or respirator for applications which generate dust.
  • Position the cord clear of bit. Do not wrap the cord around your arm or wrist.
  • Never attempt to operate this tool with one hand.
  • Avoid being caught between a hammer and walls or posts. Should the bit become bound or jammed into the work, the reaction of the hammer could crush your hand or leg.
  • Do not hammer into existing walls or other blind areas where electrical wiring may exist.
  • Vibration caused by hammer action may be harmful to your hand and arms. Used thick cushioned gloves and limit the exposure time by taking frequent rest periods.
  • Never place the tool down until the bit or accessory have come to a complete stop.
  • Accessories are hot after use. When removing the bit from the tool avoid contact with skin and use proper protective gloves when grasping the bit or accessory.
  • Do not strike the bit with a hand held hammer or sledge hammer when attempting to dislodge a bound or jammed bit. Fragments of metal from the bit could dislodge and strike you or bystanders.

Extension Cords

If an extension cord is necessary, a cord with adequate size conductors should be used to prevent excessive voltage drop, loss of power or overheating. If you are using a 601b hammer a cord will be provided. This 50ft. cord is the maximum amount that can be used under any circumstances. Do not use additional cord or a different cord than what was provided to you.

Installing Accessories
Clean the insert shank end of the accessory to remove any debris, then lightly grease with a light oil or lubricant. If work is to be done where the accessories are changed frequently and laid in dirt. sand or concrete dust, it is best not to grease the shank after wiping clean. 

NOTE: The high efficiency available from the hammer can only be obtained if sharp and undamaged accessories are used.
  • To lock standard air steel in place, lower the tool retainer lever all the way down and around the bottom and raise lever all the way up to the opposite side.
  • To lock Bosch internal locking steel in place, lower tool retainer until you can slide the internal locking steel up to the striker.

NOTE: The notch on the internal locking steel should always face toward the retainer lever. To lock, raise the tool retainer lever all the way up.

Removing Accessories 

Warning! Accessories may be hot after use. Avoid contact with skin or use proper protective gloves or clothing to remove.
  • To remove an accessory, reverse the previous directions. All accessories should be wiped clean after removing.

    Tool Tips

    • The tool may be switched on with either hand. Balance the tool with both hands and rest the tool on the hip.
    • For the best penetration rates in concrete, run the tool with a steady pressure, but do not use excessive force as this will decrease the efficiency of the tool. Start chipping with the tool in a straight in position until the surface to be broken is chipped. Draw the hammer back at an angle of 60 degrees with the surface to be broken. Apply only enough force to keep the tool weight on the accessory.
    • All grease packed hammers require a short period of time to warm up. Depending on the room temperature, this time may vary from approximately 15 seconds (90 degrees) to 2 minutes (32 degrees).
    • Avoid no load running of the tool. No load or "empty blows" is the most damaging factor to any impact hammer.
