Protect material lines and air lines from damage or puncture.
Keep hose and power cord away from sharp objects, chemical
spills, oil, solvents, and wet floors.
Check hoses for weak or worn condition before each use, making
certain all connections are secure. Do not use if defect is found.
Purchase a new hose or notify an authorised service centre for
examination or repair.
Release all pressures within the system slowly. Dust and debris
may be harmful.
Store idle air compressors out of the reach of children and other
untrained persons. Air compressors are dangerous in the hands
of untrained users.
Maintain air compressors with care. Follow maintenance
instructions. Properly maintained products are easier to control.
Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage
of parts, and any other condition that may affect the product's
operation. If damaged, have the air compressor serviced before
using. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained products.
Keep the exterior of the air compressor dry, clean, and free from
oil and grease. Always use a clean cloth when cleaning. Never use
brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-based products, or any strong
solvents to clean the unit. Following this rule will reduce the risk
of deterioration of the enclosure plastic.
When servicing use only identical replacement parts. Use of any
other parts may create a hazard or cause product damage.
Save these instructions. Refer to them frequently and use them
to instruct other users. If you loan someone this tool, loan them
these instructions also.

help prevent corrosion on the inside of tank.
Risk of fire or explosion. Do not spray flammable liquid in a
confined area. Spray area must be well ventilated. Do not smoke
while spraying or spray where spark or flame is present. Keep
compressors as far from the spraying area as possible, at least
10 m (33 feet) from the spraying area and all explosive vapours.
Risk of bursting. Do not adjust regulator to result in output
pressure greater than marked maximum pressure of attachment.
Do not use at pressure greater than 8 bar.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not expose to rain. Store
Inspect tank yearly for rust, pin holes, or other imperfections that
could cause it to become unsafe.
Never weld or drill holes in the air tank.

Check for damaged parts. Before further use of the air compressor
or air tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should be
carefully checked to determine that it will operate properly and
perform its intended function. Check for alignment of moving
parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting,
and any other conditions that may affect its operation. A guard
or other part that is damaged should be properly repaired or
replaced by an authorised service centre. Following this rule will
reduce the risk of serious injury.
Never store a tool with an air line connected. Storing the tool while
connected to an air supply can result in unexpected operation,
