APPLICATIONS

Air source of the pneumatic nailer and stapler.
WARNING
Never use compressor for applications
other than compressor for pneumatic
nailer and stapler.

PRIOR TO OPERATION

1. Power source
Ensure that the power source to be utilized conforms to the
power source requirements specified on the product nameplate.
2. Power switch
Ensure that the knob of the pressure switch is in the "OFF"
position (Fig. 2). If the plug is connected to a receptacle while
the knob is in the "ON" position, the compressor will start
operating immediately and can cause serious injury.

3. Extension cord
When the work area is far away from the power source, use an
extension cord of sufficient thickness and rated capacity (refer
page 6). The extension cord should be kept as short as
practicable.
Damaged cord must be replaced or
WARNING:
repaired.
4. Confirm the power receptacle
If the power receptacle only loosely accepts the plug, the
receptacle must be repaired. Contact the nearest electric store
for repair service.
If such a faulty receptacle is used, may cause overheating,
resulting in a serious hazard.
5. Right running position
Position the compressor on a flat surface or one with an
inclination of 10° at the most, in a well ventilated area
away from atmospheric agents and not in explosive areas
(Fig.3).
CAUTION
In order to avoid damaging the compressor,
do not allow the unit to be tilted more than
10° when operating.
NOTE:
When operating or storing the compressor, set 4 rubber
bumpers downward on the floor (Refer to Fig.1)

6. Temperature
Operating temperatures are between 32°F and 104°F
(0°C and 40°C).
Never operate in temperatures below 32°F
CAUTION:
(0°C) or above 104°F (40°C).

TRANSPORT

Push the knob of the pressure switch to "OFF" and disconnect it from
the power source before move the compressor. Transport the
compressor in the correct manner.

OPERATION

1. Start-up
Insert the plug into the receptacle and start the compressor by
pulling the knob of the pressure switch to "ON" (Refer to Fig. 2).
WARNING
Do not stop or start the compressor by
use of the plug. Always use "ON/OFF"
knob located on the pressure switch.
The operation of the compressor is automatic and is controlled by
the pressure switch which stops it when the pressure in the air-tank
reaches the maximum level and restart it when the air pressure
drops during use to the restart level.
The motor of the compressor is fitted with a thermal protection with
automatic reset, which stops the compressor when the temperature
is too high. Should this be tripped, the compressor will restart
automatically after cool off.

conditions and duration of use, noise from
this product may contribute to hearing
loss.
2. Adjustment of working pressure
Unlock the knob of the pressure reducer pulling it up, adjust the
pressure to the required level by turning the knob clockwise to
increase and counterclockwise to decrease.
A pressure gauge (B) is provided to know when the required
pressure is reached, lock the knob by pushing it down firmly (Refer
to Fig. 4).
When adjusting the pressure, check and make sure that a pressure
gauge for the tank has the pressure level that is higher than that of
the pressure to be adjusted.
It is also imperative that you make adjustment by slowly starting up
the pressure from the level that is lower than the pressure to be
adjusted.
