INSTALLING AIR FILTERS

See figure 5.
Attach one air filter to the cylinder cover on each side. Screw in a
clockwise direction to fasten securely.

CHECKING/ADDING OIL

See figure 6.
To avoid damage to the compressor, add oil before starting and
check oil level before each use.
Always check the oil when the unit is sitting on a level surface and
before first use.
1. There is a red dot in the centre of the sight glass.
2. An oil level at the top of the red dot indicates oil is at maximum
level.
3. An oil level at or below the bottom of the red dot indicates oil is
below desired level, and oil should be added.
To add oil:
1. Unscrew the cap of oil fill hole.
2. Using a funnel, carefully pour oil into the oil fill hole. Fill only with
SAE-30 oil.
NOTE: Avoid using too much oil. Ensure that the level of the oil
does not exceed the top of the red dot at sight glass.
3. Tighten the cap securely into the oil fill hole.
Replace the oil after the first 10 hours of operation and every 50 hours
following the first oil change. Refer to the Replacing oil section for
details.
