Bosch Power Tools 1 609 92A 1LU | (23.5.18)
 When operating a power tool outdoors, use an exten-
sioncord suitablefor outdooruse.Use ofa cord suitable
for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
 If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoid-
able, use a residual current device (RCD) protected
supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
Personal safety
 Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common
sensewhenoperatinga power tool.Do notuse apower
toolwhileyouaretiredorundertheinfluenceofdrugs,
alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while op-
erating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
 Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye
protection. Protective equipment such as dust mask,
non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection
used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal inju-
ries.
 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 en-
ergising power tools that have the switch on invites acci-
dents.
 Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning
the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a ro-
tating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
 Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at
all times. This enables better control of the power tool in
unexpected situations.
 Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewel-
lery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from
moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be
caught in moving parts.
 If devices are provided for the connection of dust ex-
traction and collection facilities, ensure these are con-
nected and properly used. Use of dust collection can re-
duce dust-related hazards.
Power tool use and care
 Donotforcethepowertool.Usethecorrectpower tool
for your application. The correct power tool will do the
job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
 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.
 Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the
battery pack 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.
 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.
 Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or bind-
ing of moving parts, breakage of parts and any other
conditionthat may affectthe power tool’s operation. If
damaged, have the power tool repaired before use.
Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power
tools.
 Keepcuttingtoolssharpandclean.Properly maintained
cuttingtoolswithsharpcuttingedgesarelesslikelytobind
and are easier to control.
 Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in ac-
cordance 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.
Service
 Haveyourpowertoolservicedbyaqualifiedrepairper-
son using only identical replacement parts. This will en-
sure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Hammer Safety Warnings
 Wear ear protectors. Exposure to noise can cause hear-
ing loss.
 Use auxiliary handle(s), if supplied with the tool. Loss
of control can cause personal injury.
 Hold the tool by the insulated gripping surfaces when
performing operations where the application tool or
thescrewcouldcontacthiddenwiringoritsownpower
cord. Contact with a “live” wire will also make exposed
metalpartsofthepowertool“live”and shocktheoperator.
 Use suitable detectors to determine if utility lines are
hiddenintheworkareaorcallthelocalutilitycompany
for assistance. Contact with electric lines can lead to fire
and electric shock. Damaging a gas line can lead to explo-
sion. Penetrating a water line causes property damage or
may cause an electric shock.
 When working with the machine, always hold it firmly
with both hands and provide for a secure stance. The
power tool is guided more secure with both hands.
 Secure the workpiece. A workpiece clamped with clamp-
ing devices or in a vice is held more secure than by hand.
 Always wait until the machine has come to a complete
stop before placing it down. The tool insert can jam and
lead to loss of control over the power tool.
Products sold in GB only: Your product is fitted with a
BS 1363/A approved electric plug with internal fuse (ASTA
approved to BS 1362).
If the plug is not suitable for your socket outlets, it should be
cut off and an appropriate plug fitted in its place by an author-
ised customer service agent. The replacement plug should
have the same fuse rating as the original plug.
The severed plug must be disposed of to avoid a possible
shock hazard and should never be inserted into a mains sock-
et elsewhere.

The vibration level given in this information sheet has been
measured in accordance with a standardised test given in
EN 60745 and may be used to compare one tool with anoth-
er. It may be used for a preliminary assessment of exposure.
The declared vibration emission level represents the main ap-
plications of the tool. However if the tool is used for different
applications,withdifferentaccessoriesorinsertiontoolsoris
poorly maintained, the vibration emission may differ. This
may significantly increase the exposure level over the total
working period.
An estimation of thelevelofexposuretovibrationshouldalso
take into account the times when the tool is switched off or
when it is running but not actually doing the job. This may sig-
nificantly reduce the exposure level over the total working
period.

Selecting Drill Chucks and Tools
For hammer drilling and chiselling, SDS-plus tools are re-
quired that are inserted in the SDS-plus drill chuck.
For drilling without impact in wood, metal, ceramic and plas-
tic as well as for screwdriving, tools without SDS-plus are
used (e.g., drills with cylindrical shank). For these tools, a
keyless chuck or a key type drill chuck are required.
PBH 3000-2 FRE:TheSDS-plusquickchangechuck2caneasily
be replaced against the quick change keyless chuck 1 provided.
Replacing the Drill Chuck
(PBH 2800 RE/PBH 2900RE/PBH 2900 FRE/
PBH 3000 FRE Set)
To work with drilling tools without SDS-plus (e. g., drill bits
with cylindrical shank), the key type drill chuck or the keyless
chuck must be mounted.
Mounting the Key Type Drill Chuck (Accessory)
(PBH 2800 RE/PBH 2900 RE) (see figure C)
– Screw the SDS-plus adapter shank 22 into a key type drill
chuck 21. Secure the key type drill chuck 21 with the se-
curing screw 20. Please observe that the securing
screw has a left-hand thread.
Inserting the Key Type Drill Chuck or the Keyless Chuck
(see figure D)
– Clean the shank end of the adapter shank and apply a light
coat of grease.
– Insert the key type drill chuck 21 or the keyless chuck 23
with the adapter shank into the tool holder with a turning
motion until it automatically locks.
– Check the locking effect by pulling the key type drill chuck
or the keyless chuck.
Removing the Key Type Drill Chuck or the Keyless Chuck
– Push the locking sleeve 5 toward the rear and pull out the
key type drill chuck 21 or the keyless chuck 23.
Removing/Inserting the Quick Change Chuck
(PBH 3000-2 FRE)
Removing the Quick Change Chuck (see figure E)
– Grasp the lock ring of the quick change chuck 6 and pull it
firmlyinthedirectionofthearrow.Thequickchangechuck
is released and can be removed toward the front.
– After removing, protect the replacement chuck against
contamination.
Inserting the Quick Change Chuck (see figure F)
– Beforeinserting,cleanthequickchangechuckandapplya
light coat of grease to the shank end.
– Grasp the SDS-plus quick change chuck 2 or the quick
change keyless chuck 1 completely with your hand. Slide
thequick changechuckwith aturning motion ontothe drill
chuck mounting 24 until a distinct latching noise is heard.
– Thequickchangechuckisautomaticallylocked.Checkthe
locking effect by pulling the quick change chuck.
Changing the Tool
Thedustprotectioncap4largelypreventstheentryofdrilling
dustintothe tool holderduring operation. When insertingthe
tool, take care that the dust protection cap 4 is not damaged.
 A damaged dust protection cap should be changed im-
mediately. We recommend having this carried out by
an after-sales service.
Inserting SDS-plus Drilling Tools (see figure G)
The SDS-plus drill chuck allows for simple and convenient
changing of drilling tools without the use of additional tools.
– PBH 3000-2 FRE: Insert the SDS-plus quick change chuck 2.
– Clean and lightly grease the shank end of the tool.
– Insertthetoolinatwistingmannerintothetoolholderuntil
it latches itself.
– Check the latching by pulling the tool.
As a requirement of the system, the SDS-plus drilling tool can
move freely. This causes a certain radial run-out at no-load,
which has no effect on the accuracy of the drill hole, as the
drill bit centres itself upon drilling.
Removing SDS-plus Drilling Tools (see figure H)
– Push back the locking sleeve 5 and remove the tool.
Inserting Drilling Tools without SDS-plus into the Key
Type Drill Chuck (PBH 2800 RE/PBH 2900 RE)

Dust Extraction with the Dust Extraction Attach-
ment (Accessory)
 Dusts from materials such as lead-containing coatings,
some wood types, minerals and metal can be harmful to
one’s health. Touching or breathing-in the dusts can cause
allergic reactions and/or lead to respiratory infections of
the user or bystanders.
Certain dusts, such as oak or beech dust, are considered
as carcinogenic, especially in connection with wood-treat-
ment additives (chromate, wood preservative). Materials
containing asbestos may only be worked by specialists.
– Asfaraspossible,use adustextractionsystemsuitable
for the material.
– Provide for good ventilation of the working place.
– It is recommended to wear a P2 filter-class respirator.
Observe the relevant regulations in your country for the mate-
rials to be worked.
 Prevent dust accumulation at the workplace. Dusts can
easily ignite.
Mounting the Dust Extraction Attachment (see figure K)
For dust extraction, the dust extraction attachment (accesso-
ry) is required. When drilling, the dust extraction attachment
retracts so that the attachment head is always close to the
surface at the drill hole.
– Pressthebuttonfordepthstopadjustment15andremove
the depth stop 18. Press button 15 again and insert the
dust extraction attachment into the auxiliary handle 17
from the front.
– Connectanextractionhose(diameter19 mm,accessory)to
the extraction sleeve 27 of the dust extraction attachment.
The vacuum cleaner must be suitable for the material being
worked.
When vacuuming dry dust that is especially detrimental to
health or carcinogenic, use a special vacuum cleaner.
Adjusting the Drilling Depth on the Dust Extraction At-
tachment (see figure L)
The required drilling depth X can also be adjusted when the
dust extraction attachment is mounted.
– Insert the SDS-plus drilling tool to the stop into the SDS-
plus tool holder 3. Otherwise, the movability of the SDS-
plus drilling tool can lead to incorrect adjustment of the
drilling depth.
– Loosen the wing bolt 31 on the dust extraction attach-
ment.
– Without switching the power tool on, apply it firmly to the
drilling location. The SDS-plus drilling tool must face
against the surface.
– Position the the guide pipe 32 of the dust extraction at-
tachment in its holding fixture in such a manner that the
head of the dust extraction attachment faces against the
surfacetobedrilled.Donotslidetheguidepipe32 further
over the telescopic pipe 30 of the dust extraction attach-
ment than required, so that as much as possible of the
scale 30 on the telescopic pipe remains visible.
– Retightenthewingbolt31again.Loosentheclampingscrew
28 on the depth stop of the dust extraction attachment.
– Move the depth stop 29 on the telescopic pipe 30 in such
a manner that the clearance X shown in the figure corre-
sponds with the required drilling depth.
– Tighten the clamping screw 28 in this position.

Reversing the rotational direction (see figure M)
The rotational direction switch 10 is used to reverse the rota-
tional direction of the machine. However, this is not possible
with the On/Off switch 8 actuated.
Right rotation: Push the rotational direction switch 10
rightward to the stop.
Left rotation: Push the rotational direction switch 10
leftward to the stop.
Set the direction of rotation for hammer drilling, drilling and
chiselling always to right rotation.
Switching On and Off
– To start the machine, press the On/Off switch 8.
– TolocktheOn/Offswitch,keepitpressedandadditionally
push the lock-on button 7.
– To switch off the machine, release the On/Off switch 8.
When the On/Off switch 8 is locked, press it first and then
release it.
To save energy, only switch the power tool on when using it.
Setting the Speed/Impact Rate
The speed/impact rate of the switched on power tool can be
variably adjusted, depending on how far the On/Off switch 8
is pressed.
LightpressureontheOn/Offswitch8resultsinlowspeed/im-
pact rate. Further pressure on the switch increases the
speed/impact rate.
Preselecting the Speed/Impact Frequency
The required speed can be preselected with the thumbwheel
9 (also while running).
Due to the limitation, the On/Off switch 8 can only be pulled
through to the preset limit.
Gear selection, mechanical (PBH 3000-2 FRE)
Two speed ranges can be preselected with the gear selector
13.
1st gear:
Low speed range; for hammer drilling, chiselling, drilling with
large drilling diameter, screwdriving and thread cutting.
2nd gear:
High speed range; for drilling with small drilling diameter.
– To change gear, push the release button 11 on the mode
selector switch 12 and turn the mode selector switch to
the “drilling” position. Then push the release button 14 on
thegearselector13andturnthegearselectorto2nd gear.
Note: The mode selector switch 12 may only be turned when
the machine is switched off. The machine should also be
switched off when turning the gear selector 13.
Hammer drilling and chiselling is possible only in 1st gear. In
theseoperatingmodes,thespecialshapeofthegearselector
13 and mode selector switch 12 do not allow switching to
2nd gear.
Before changing the operating mode from drilling to hammer
drilling,Vario-Lockorchiselling,thegearselector13 must be
set back to 1st gear.
Safety Clutch
 If the tool insert becomes caught or jammed, the drive
tothedrillspindleisinterrupted.Becauseoftheforces
that occur, always hold the power tool firmly with both
hands and provide for a secure stance.
 If the power tool jams, switch the machine off and loos-
enthe toolinsert. Whenswitching themachineonwith
the drilling tool jammed, high reaction torques can oc-
cur.
Working Advice
Rotation Direction for Chiselling
For chiselling, always set the rotation direction to right rota-
tion. This prevents increased wear of the carbon brushes.
Changing the Chiselling Position (Vario-Lock)
The chisel can be locked in 36 positions. In this manner, the
optimum working position can be set for each application.
– Insert the chisel into the tool holder.
– Turn the mode selector switch 12 to the “Vario-Lock” posi-
tion (see “Setting the operating mode”, page 19).
– Turn the tool holder to the desired chiselling position.
– Turn the mode selector switch 12 to the “chiselling” posi-
tion. The tool holder is now locked.
– For chiselling, set the rotation direction to right rotation.
Inserting Screwdriver Bits (see figure N)
 Apply the power tool to the screw/nut only when it is
switched off. Rotating tool inserts can slip off.
To work with screwdriver bits, a universal bit holder 33 with
SDS-plus shank (accessory) is required.
– Clean the shank end of the adapter shank and apply a light
coat of grease.
– Insert the universal bit holder with a turning motion into
the tool holder until it automatically locks.
