This manual contains important safety, operational and maintenance information. If you have any questions, please call 1-800-543-6400for customer assistance.

When using tools, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:

California Proposition 65

This product or its power cord may contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive

harm.Wash hands after handling.

You can create dust when you cut, sand, drill or grind materials such as wood, paint, metal, concrete, cement, or

other masonry.This dust often contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.Wear protective gear.


a. To reduce the risks of electric shock, fire, and injury to persons, read all the instructions before using the tool. Failure to follow warnings, dangers, and cautions could result in DEATH or SERIOUS INJURY.

b.Be thoroughly familiar with the controls and the proper use of the

equipment. Follow all instructions. Contact your Campbell Hausfeld representative if you have any questions.

c.Only persons well acquainted with these rules of safe operation should be allowed to use the unit.

Do not operate or allow anyone else to operate the nailer if any warnings or warning labels are not legible.Warnings or warning labels are located

on the nailer magazine and body.

Always assume the nailer contains nails. Respect the tool as a working implement; no horseplay.Always keep others at a safe distance from

the work area in case of accidental discharge of nails. Do not point the tool toward yourself or anyone whether it contains fasteners or not.Accidental triggering of the nailer could result in death or serious personal injury.

Do not make any modifications to the tool without first obtaining written approval from Campbell Hausfeld. Do not use the nailer if any

shields or guards are removed or altered. Do not use the nailer as a hammer. Personal injury or tool damage may occur.

Clean and check all air supply hoses and fittings before connecting the nailer to an air supply. Replace any damaged or worn hoses or fittings.

Tool performance or durability may be reduced.

Work Area

a.Keep the work area clean and well lighted. Cluttered benches and dark areas increase the risks of electric shock, fire, and injury to persons.

b.Do not operate the tool in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases, or dust. The tool is able to create sparks resulting in the ignition of the dust or fumes.

c.Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while operating the tool.

Operating Instructions and Parts Manual




Important Safety Information (Continued)

Personal Safety

a.Stay alert.Watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating the tool. Do not use the tool while tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while operating the tool increases the risk of injury to persons.

b.Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair increases the risk of injury to persons as a result of being caught in moving parts.

c. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.Proper footing and balance enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations.

d.Use safety equipment. A dust mask,non-skidsafety shoes and a hard hat must be used for the applicable conditions.

Ensuring that the tool is used only when the operator and all

other personnel in the work area are wearing ANSI Z87 eye protection equipment, and when required, other

appropriate protection equipment such as head, hearing

and foot protection equipment. Serious eye or permanent hearing loss could result.

e. Always wear hearing protection when using the tool.Prolonged exposure to high intensity noise is able to cause hearing loss.

f.Do not attach the hose or tool to your body.

Attach the hose to the structure to reduce the risk of loss of balance if the hose shifts.

g.Always assume that the tool contains fasteners.

Do not point the tool toward yourself or anyone whether it contains fasteners or not.

Do not drop or throw the tool. Dropping

or throwing the tool can result in damage that will make the tool unusable or unsafe. If the tool has been dropped or thrown, examine the tool closely for bent, cracked or broken parts and air leaks. STOP and repair before using or serious injury could occur.

Avoid long extended periods of work with the nailer. Stop using the nailer if you feel pain in

hands or arms.

Hold tool by insulated gripping surface when performing an operation where the tool or

fastener may contact hidden wiring. Contacting a “live” wire will make exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and shock the operator.

Never place hands or any other body parts in the nail discharge

area of the nailer.The nailer might eject a fastener and could result in death or serious personal injury.

Electrical Safety

The front end of the tool may be made “live” if the tool comes


Tool Use and Care

a.Do not force the tool. Use the correct tool for the application. The correct tool will do the job better and safer at the rate for which the tool is designed.

Disconnect the tool from the air source before making adjustments, doing tool maintenance,

clearing jams, touching the safety yoke, leaving work area, loading, or unloading the tool. Such precautionary measures reduce the risk of injury to persons.

b.Store the tool when it is idle out of reach of children and other untrained persons. A tool is dangerous in the hands of untrained users.

c.Maintain the tool with care. A properly maintained tool reduces the risk of problems and is easier to control.

d.Use only those fasteners listed in the “Fastener Interchange Information” section on page 12 of this manual.Fasteners not identified for use with this tool by the tool manufacturer are able to result in a risk of injury to persons or tool damage when used in this tool.

e.Always work in a well-ventilatedarea.Wear OSHAapproved dust mask.

Always disconnect the tool from the power source when unattended, performing any

maintenance or repair, clearing a jam, loading, unloading , or moving the tool to a new location.

Always fit tool with a fitting or hose coupling on or near the tool in such a manner that all

compressed air in the tool is discharged at the time the fitting or hose coupling is disconnected. Do not use a check valve or any other fitting which allows air to remain in the nailer. Death or serious personal injury could occur.

Never carry the nailer by the air hose or pull the hose to move the nailer or a compressor.

Keep hoses away from heat, oil and sharp edges. Replace any hose that is damaged, weak or worn. Personal injury or tool damage could occur.

Do not drive a nail on top of other nails.The nail could glance and cause death or a serious

puncture wound.

f.Do not remove any labels from the tool.

g.Do not modify or alter the nailer or any nailer parts. Do not use the nailer if any shields or guards are removed or altered. Do not use the nailer as a hammer. Personal injury or tool damage may occur.

Do not use any type of flammable gases or oxygen as a power source for the nailer.

b.When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement parts. Use only authorized parts.

c.Use only the lubricants supplied with the tool or specified by the manufacturer.

Disconnect air supply and release tension from the pusher before attempting to clear jams because fasteners can be ejected from the front of the nailer.

Personal injury may occur.

Air Source

a.Never connect to an air source that is capable of exceeding 200 psi. Over pressurizing the tool is able to result in bursting, abnormal operation, breakage of the tool or serious injury to persons. Use only clean, dry, regulated compressed air at the rated pressure or within the rated pressure range as marked on the tool. Always verify prior to using the tool that the air source has been adjusted to the rated air pressure or within the rated air-pressure range.

b.Never use oxygen, carbon dioxide, combustible gases or any bottled gas as an air source for the tool. Such gases are capable of explosion and serious injury to persons.
