contains moisture in the air, abrasion particles, rust,
etc. To drain the air tank open valve slowly and tilt
compressor to empty accumulated water.
To discharge the drain, therefore, gradually open the
drain valve, and be careful not to point it at your face
30. DO NOT STOP COMPRESSOR BY PULLING OUT THE
This could result in damage to the unit.
Use the "AUTO/OFF" lever of motor/pressure switch.
31. MAKE SURE THE COMPRESSOR OUTLET PRESSURE
IS SET LOWER THAN THE MAXIMUM OPERATING
PRESSURE OF THE TOOL.
Too much air pressure causes a hazardous risk of
bursting. Check the manufacturer's maximum
pressure rating for air tools and accessories. The
regulator outlet pressure must never exceed the
maximum pressure rating.
32. THE SAFETY RELIEF VALVE MUST WORK PROPERLY.
Risk of bursting. Before starting the compressor pull
the ring on the safety relief valve to make sure the
valve moves freely. If the safety relief valve does not
work properly, over-pressurization may occur, causing
air tank rupture or an explosion.
When servicing use only genuine replacement parts.
Repairs should be conducted only by a Hitachi authorized service center.
