Important Safety Instructions (Continued)

Always remain in a firmly balanced

position when using or handling the tool.

Avoid long extended periods of work

with the tool. Stop using the tool if you feel pain in hands or arms.

Tool Use and Care

a..Use clamps or another practical way to secure and support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the work by hand or against the body is unstable and is able to lead to loss of control..

b..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..

c..Do not use the tool if the switch does not turn the tool on or off. Any tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired..

d..Disconnect the tool from the air source before making any

adjustments, changing accessories, loading, unloading or storing

the tool. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool unintentionally..

e..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..

f..Maintain the tool with care. Keep a cutting tool sharp and clean.. A

properly maintained tool, with sharp cutting edges reduces the risk of binding and is easier to control..

g..Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and any other condition that affects the tool’s operation. If damaged, have the tool serviced before using.. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained tools.. There is a risk of bursting if the tool is damaged..

h..Use only accessories that are identified by the manufacturer for the specific tool model. Use of an

accessory not intended for use with the specific tool model, increases the risk of injury to persons..

i.Selecting an appropriate tool actuation system, taking into consideration the work application for which the tool is used..

Never use

gasoline or other flammable liquids to clean the tool. Never use

the tool in the presence of flammable liquids or gases. Vapors could ignite by a spark and cause an

explosion which will result in death or serious personal injury.

Do not remove, tamper with, or otherwise

cause the Work Contact

Element (WCE) or trigger to become inoperable. Do not operate any tool which has been modified in a like fashion. Death or serious personal injury could result.

Do not touch the trigger unless driving fasteners.

Never attach air line to

tool or carry tool while touching the trigger. The tool could eject a fastener which will result in death or serious personal injury.

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 reconnect the air line AFTER loading any fasteners. Do not load the tool with fasteners when either the trigger is depressed or the Work Contact Element (WCE) is engaged. The tool could eject a fastener causing death or serious personal injury.

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 tool. Death or serious personal injury could occur.

Never place hands or any other body parts in the fastener discharge area of

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

Never carry the tool by

the air hose or pull the hose to move the tool

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.

Always assume the tool contains

fasteners. 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 fasteners. Do not point the tool toward yourself or anyone whether it contains fasteners or not. Accidental triggering of the tool could result in death or serious personal injury.

Do not drive a fastener on top of other fasteners. The fastener

could glance and cause death or a serious puncture wound.


Do not operate or allow anyone else to operate the tool if any warnings

or warning labels are not legible. Warnings or warning labels are located on the tool magazine and body.

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.

Always check that the Work Contact

Element (WCE) is operating properly. A fastener could accidentally be driven if the WCE is not working properly. Personal injury may occur (See "Checking the Work Contact Element" Section).

Avoid using the tool when the

magazine is empty. Accelerated wear on the tool may occur.

Operating Instructions (Continued)

1. The air compressor must be able to

maintain a minimum of 70 psi when the

tool is being used.. An inadequate air supply can cause a loss of power and inconsistent driving..

2. An oiler can be used to provide oil circulation through the tool.. A filter can

be used to remove liquid and solid impurities which can rust or “gum up” internal parts of the tool..

3.Always use air supply hoses with a minimum working pressure

rating equal to or greater than the pressure from the power source if a regulator fails, or 150 psi, whichever is greater.. Use 3/8 inch air hose for runs up to 50 feet.. Use 1/2 inch air hoses for 50 foot run or longer.. For better performance, install a 3/8 inch quick plug (1/4 inch NPT threads) with an inside diameter of ..315 inch (8mm) on the tool and a 3/8 inch quick coupler on the air hose..

4.Use a pressure regulator on the compressor, with an operating pressure of 0 - 125 psi.. A pressure regulator is required to control the operating pressure of the tool between 70 and 120 psi..

Operational Mode

Always know the operational mode of

the tool before using. Failure to know the operational mode could result in death or serious personal injury.

This tool is sold with a black single sequential trigger. This tool is NOT intended to be used with a bump mode trigger.

Single Cycle Mode

placement.. This



mode requires the trigger to be pulled each time a nail is driven.. The nailer can be actuated by depressing the WCE against the work surface followed by pulling the trigger.. Or the nailer can be actuated by pulling the trigger and then depressing the WCE against the work surface..

The trigger must be released to reset the tool before another nail can be driven..

Operating A Sequential Trip Tool

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 tool if the WCE trip mechanism is not operating properly. Personal injury may occur.

1.Disconnect the air supply from the tool..

2.Remove all fasteners

from the magazine (see Loading/ Unloading)..

3.Make sure the trigger and work contact element (WCE) move freely up and down without sticking or binding..

4.Reconnect air supply
