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-skid safety 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

Replace batteries only with same size batteries. Do not mix old and new batteries. Using wrong size batteries can create a risk

of fire or injury.

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

into contact with live wiring in the wall.TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL ELECTRICAL SHOCK, HOLD TOOL ONLY BY THE SOFT GRIP HANDLE.

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-ventilated area.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.

Do not expose tool to extreme heat.

f.Do not store in locations where the temperature may reach or exceed 120°F (49°C), such as a metal tool shed, or a car in the summer.This can lead to deterioration of the battery.

Pre-Operation

Operational Modes

Always know the operational mode of the nailer before using. Failure to know the operational mode could result in death or serious injury.

This nailer may be operated in the “Sequential” mode (as supplied by the manufacturer) or “Bump” mode. The tool may be converted from one mode to the other by firmly pressing the conversion switch from one position to the other.

Press the conversion switch on the “ ” side to activate Sequential Mode.

Press the conversion switch on the “ ” side to activate Bump Mode. Press either side to the middle position to activate the Safety Lockout Mode.

Sequential Mode

This method is recommended when precise nail placement is required. Operation in this mode requires trigger to be pulled each time a nail is driven. Nailer can be actuated by depressing the Work Contact Element (WCE) against work surface followed by pulling the trigger.

The trigger must be released after each fastener is driven to allow tool to reset.

Since the tool can only be actuated by first removing the finger from the trigger, this is considered to be a more restrictive mode of operation, suitable for less experienced users.

Depress WCE first...

Work Surface

Then pull trigger.

Pre-Operation (Continued)

 

Bump Mode

Pull trigger first...

This method is recommended when less precise nail placement is required. Operation

 

in this mode requires the trigger to be depressed with nailer off of the work surface.

 

Then, the nose of the nailer is tapped against the work surface causing a nail to be

 

driven.

 

Each time the Work Contact Element is depressed, a nail is driven into the work

 

surface. Extreme care should be taken because a nail will be driven when the WCE is

 

pressed against any surface.

 

Since the tool can be actuated without removing the finger from the trigger, this is

 

considered to be a less restrictive mode, suitable for more experienced users.

 

Safety Lockout Mode

 

When the conversion switch is pressed into the middle position, the trigger is in Safety

Work Surface

 

Lockout Mode. In this mode, no combination of WCE and trigger activations will allow

Then depress WCE.

the tool to cycle or fire. If tool does operate while in Safety Lockout Mode, contact

 

Campbell Hausfeld for technical support, and do not use the nailer until repaired.

 

Work Contact Element (WCE)

 

Check the operation of the Work Contact Element (WCE) trip mechanism

 

before each use.The WCE must move freely without binding through its

 

entire travel distance.The WCE spring must return the WCE to its fully extended position after

 

being depressed. Do not operate the nailer if the WCE trip mechanism is not operating properly.

 

Personal injury may occur.

 

1. Disconnect the air supply from the nailer.

Work Surface

 

2. Make sure the trigger and Work Contact Element (WCE) move freely up and down

Figure 17 - Bump Mode

 

without sticking or binding.

 

NOTE: If the tool is not loaded with nails, the anti-dry fire feature will not allow the

 

WCE to be depressed.

 

3. Reconnect air supply to the nailer.

 

4. Use a scrap piece of wood as a work surface.

 

5. Depress the WCE against the work surface without pulling the trigger (See

Work Surface

Figure 18). The nailer must not operate. Do not use the tool if it operates

 

without pulling the trigger. Personal injury may result.

 

6. Remove nailer from work surface. The WCE must return to its original down

Figure 18

 

position. Pull the trigger (See Figure 19). The nailer must not operate. Do not

 

use the tool if it operates while lifted from the work surface. Personal injury may

 

result.

 

7. Pull the trigger and depress the WCE against the work surface. The nailer MUST

 

operate when in bump mode. The nailer MUST NOT operate if in sequential

 

mode.

 

8. Depress the WCE against work surface. Pull the trigger. The nailer MUST operate.

 

9. Switch nailer into the other Mode as described in Operational Modes section and

 

repeat.

Work Surface

IMPORTANT: Repeat steps one through nine with tool in Safety Lockout Mode. Tool

Figure 19

should not operate at any step. If tool does operate while in Safety Lockout Mode,

 

contact Campbell Hausfeld for technical support.

 

Electronics ON / OFF Switch

Located on the battery compartment is an ON/ OFF for the tool’s electronic functions and low nail indicator LEDs (See Figure 20).

To utilize the function, turn the battery switch to the “ON” position. To avoid unwanted

battery depletion during storage, turn the switch to the “OFF” position.

Operation

Firing the Nailer

1.Load fasteners (see Loading / Unloading the Nailer section).

2.Connect the air supply to the nailer.

An improperly functioning tool must not be used. Do not actuate the tool unless the tool is placed firmly against the work piece.

In Sequential Mode

Press the conversion switch to the “ ” side to activate Sequential Mode.

1.Fully depress WCE.

2.Pull trigger. Fastener will be driven into workpiece.

In Bump Mode

Press the conversion switch to the “ ” side to activate Bump Mode.

1.Remove tool from work surface. DO NOT point tool at yourself or others.

2.Pull trigger.

3.Firmly depress Work Contact element (WCE) against work surface. Tool will cycle.

4.Remove tool from work surface. Move tool to the next area where fastener is to be driven and repeat.

Low Nail Indicator Lights

The tool is equipped with lights on either side of the tool near the nose. Turn the electronics switch to the on position. When the nail count becomes 10 or so nails remaining in the magazine, the lights will come on yellow. You may reload at that time (See Loading the Nailer section). When the nail count becomes 5 or so remaining nails, the Anti-Dry Fire will engage and the lights will turn red. You must reload at that time.

Bubble Level

The tool is equipped with a bubble level located on the head cap. When the gun is in a horizontal driving orientation, a level condition can easily be observed and controlled by simply aligning the tool in such a manner whereas the bubble is between the center markings on the length of the level. The same is true when in a vertically downward driving orientation by aligning the tool such that the bubble is centered in the circular marking at the top of the level.

Storage

The nailer should be stored in a cool dry location.

Maintenance

Clearing A Jam From The Nailer

1.Disconnect nailer from air supply.

2.Remove all nails from the magazine (See Loading/ Unloading).

3.Press down on the Quick-Clear Nose (QCN) lever to disengage portion of nose barrel (See Figure 23).

4.If necessary, use small hand tools to help free the jammed nail. Sometimes it is necessary to use a hammer and a long, thin screwdriver to force the driver ram back all the way into the gun (See Figure 24).

5.Dump jammed nail out.

6.Release QCN lever.

7.Nail pusher must be in the back lock position.

8.Disconnect air supply and reload (See Loading the Tool section).

Nailer Repair

Only qualified personnel should repair the tool and they should use genuine Campbell Hausfeld replacement parts and accessories, or parts and accessories which perform equivalently.

Replacement Parts

Use only genuine Campbell Hausfeld service parts.Tool performance, safety and durability could be reduced if improper parts are used.

When ordering replacement parts, specify by part number.

Battery Replacement

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.

The electronics on the tool (low nail indicator lights) run off of two (2) AAA batteries located in the compartment on the back of the magazine. When the batteries’ power is running low and they need to be replaced, the electronic functions may not work properly or at all. Disconnect the tool from air source. Remove screw and battery compartment cover. Insert two (2) new batteries in the proper orientation. Do not mix old and new batteries. Close cover. Replace screw.

Assembly Procedure For Seals

When repairing a nailer, the internal parts must be cleaned and lubricated. Parker O- lube or equivalent must be used on all o-rings. Each o-ring must be coated with O-lube before assembling. A small amount of oil must be used on all moving surfaces and pivots. After reassembling, a few drops of 30W non-detergent oil or equivalent, must be added through the air line one time before normal operational use.
