LIMITED WARRANTY

ONE YEAR FROM DATE OF PURCHASE

All merchandise manufactured by DeVilbiss Air Power Company/ExCell Manufacturing is warranted to be free of defects in workmanship and material which occur during the first year from the date of purchase by the original purchaser (initial user). Products covered under this warranty include: air compressors, *air tools, accessories, service parts, pressure washers, and generators used in consumer applications (i.e., personal residential household usage only).

Air compressors, *air tools, accessories, service parts, pressure washers, and generators used in commercial applications (income producing) are covered by a 90 day warranty.

DeVilbiss Air Power/ExCell Manufacturing will repair or replace, at DeVilbiss/ExCell’s option, products or components which have failed within the warranty period. Repair or replacement, and service calls on 60 and 80 gallon air compressors, will be handled by Authorized Warranty Service Centers and will be scheduled and serviced according to the normal work flow and business hours at the service center location, and depending on the availability of replacement parts.

All decisions of DeVilbiss Air Power Company/ExCell Manufacturing with regard to this policy shall be final.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.

RESPONSIBILITY OF ORIGINAL PURCHASER (Initial User):

Retain original cash register sales receipt as proof of purchase for warranty work.

Use reasonable care in the operation and maintenance of the product as described in the Owners Manual(s).

Deliver or ship the product to the nearest DeVilbiss Air Power/ExCell Manufacturing Authorized Warranty Service Center. Freight costs, if any, must be paid by the purchaser.

Air compressors with 60 and 80 gallon tanks only will be inspected at the site of installation. Contact the nearest Authorized Warranty Service Center, that provides on-site service calls, for service call arrangement.

If the purchaser does not receive satisfactory results from the Authorized Warranty Service Center, the purchaser should contact DeVilbiss Air Power Company/ExCell Manufacturing.

THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER:

Merchandise sold as reconditioned, floor models and/or display models. Any damaged or incomplete equipment sold "as is".

Merchandise used as "rental" equipment.

Merchandise that has become inoperative because of ordinary wear, misuse, freeze damage, use of improper chemicals, negligence, accident, improper and/or unauthorized repair or alterations including failure to operate the product in accordance with the instructions provided in the Owners Manual (s) supplied with the product. *Air Tools: O-Rings and driver blades are considered ordinary wear parts, therefore, they are warranted for a period of 45 days from the date of purchase.

An air compressor that pumps air more than 50% during a one hour period is considered misuse because the air compressor is undersized for the required air demand. Maximum compressor pumping time per hour is 30 minutes.

Merchandise sold by DeVilbiss Air Power/ExCell Manufacturing which has been manufactured by and identified as the product of another company. The product manufacturer's warranty will apply.

Repair and transportation costs of merchandise determined not to be defective.

Cost associated with assembly, required oil, adjustments or other installation and start-up cost.

ANY INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS, DAMAGE, OR EXPENSE THAT MAY RESULT FROM ANY DEFECT, FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION OF THE PRODUCT. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THOSE OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED TO ONE YEAR FROM THE DATE OF ORIGINAL PURCHASE. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations may not apply to you.
