Safety Notes
en
General Safety Rules for Pneumatic Tools
WARNUNG Read and observe all safety warnings and
instructions. Failure to follow the following
safety warnings and instructions may result in electric
shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
1) Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark
areas invite accidents.
b)Do not operate the pneumatic tool in explosive at-
3) Personal safety
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing, and use common sense when operating a pneumatic tool. Do
not use a pneumatic tool while tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while operating a pneumatic
tool may result in personal injury.
b)Use personal protective equipment. Always wear
eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust
mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Make sure that the
pneumatic tool is switched off before connecting
mospheres, such as in the presence of flammable
it to the air supply, picking it up or carrying it.
liquids, gases or dusts. While working the work-

dust or fumes.
pneumatic tool to the air supply while it is switched
c) Keep children and bystanders away from your
workplace while operating the pneumatic tool. Dis-
on, accidents can occur.
d)Remove any adjustment tools before switching on
tractions from other persons can cause you to lose
the pneumatic tool. A wrench or key left attached to
control over the pneumatic tool.
a rotating part of a pneumatic tool may result in personal injury.
2) Pneumatic tool safety
a) Use compressed air of Quality Class 5 in accordance with DIN ISO 8573-1 and a separate maintenance unit close to the pneumatic tool. The compressed air supplied should be free of foreign
material and moisture to protect the pneumatic tool
from damage, contamination, and the formation of
rust.
b)Check the connections and the air supply lines. All
maintenance units, couplers, and hoses should conform to the product specifications in terms of pressure and air volume. Too low pressure impairs the
function of the pneumatic tool; too high pressure
can result in material damage and personal injury.
c) Protect the hoses from kinks, restrictions, solvents, and sharp edges. Keep the hoses away from
heat, oil, and rotating parts. Immediately replace a
damaged hose. A defective air supply line may result
in a wild compressed-air hose and can cause personal injury. Raised dust or chips may cause serious
eye injury.
d)Make sure that hose clamps are always tightened
firmly. Loose or damaged hose clamps may result in
uncontrolled air escape.
e)Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the
pneumatic tool in unexpected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away
from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long
hair can be caught in moving parts.
g) If devices are provided for the connection of dust
extraction and collection facilities, ensure these
are connected and properly used. Use of dust collection can reduce dust-related hazards.
h)Do not directly inhale the exhaust air. Avoid exposing the eyes to exhaust air. The pneumatic
tool's exhaust air can contain water, oil, metal particles and debris from the compressor. This can cause
damage to one's health.
4) Pneumatic tool use and care
a) Use the clamping devices or a vice to secure and
support the workpiece. Holding the workpiece by
hand or against your body will not allow for safe operation of the pneumatic tool.
b)Do not overload the pneumatic tool. Use the pneumatic tool intended for your work. The correct
pneumatic tool will do the job better and safer at
the rate for which it is designed.

c) Do not use a pneumatic tool that has a defective
On/Off switch. A pneumatic tool that cannot be
controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be
repaired.
Safety Warnings for Compressed-air
Nailers/Staplers
Wear safety goggles.
d)Disconnect the air supply before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or placing the
pneumatic tool aside. This safety measure prevents
accidental starting of the pneumatic tool.
e)Store idle pneumatic tools out of the reach of children. Do not allow persons unfamiliar with the
pneumatic tool or these instructions to operate
the device. Pneumatic tools are dangerous in the
hands of untrained users.
f) Maintain the pneumatic tool with care. Check for
misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage
of parts and any other condition that may affect
the pneumatic tool's operation. Have damaged
parts repaired before using the pneumatic tool.
Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained
pneumatic tools.
g) Use the pneumatic tool, accessories, application
tools, etc. according to these instructions. Take into consideration the working conditions and the
activities to be carried out. Use of the pneumatic
tool for operations different from those intended
could result in hazardous situations.
5) Service
a) Have your pneumatic tool repaired only through a
qualified repair person and only using original replacement parts. This will ensure that the safety of
the pneumatic tool is maintained.
f Always assume that the pneumatic tool is loaded
with fasteners. Careless handling of the pneumatic
tool can lead to unexpected shot actuation of fasteners and cause injury.
f When working, hold the pneumatic tool in such a
manner that your head and body cannot be injured in
case of sudden kickback due to a malfunction of the
energy supply or from hard objects/locations in the
workpiece.
f Never point the pneumatic tool at yourself or at persons close by. Unexpected actuation will expel a fastener, which can lead to injury.
f Do not actuate the pneumatic tool until firmly placed
against the workpiece. When the pneumatic tool is not
in contact with the workpiece, the fastener can bounce
away from the fastening point and overload the pneumatic tool.
Do not work on ladders or scaffolds when
the actuation system “Contact actuation” is
set. In particular, do not move from one fastening location to another, close boxes or
enclosures, or fasten transport-securing fixtures on e.g., vehicles and waggons, via scaffolds, stairs, ladders or ladder-like constructions, such as roof battens. With this
actuation system, a fastener will be discharged each time when accidentally applying the pneumatic tool while the discharge
lock-off is pressed in. This can lead to injury.
f Observe the conditions of the job site. It is possible
that fasteners can burst through thin workpieces or be
deflected when working in corners or against edges,
and harm persons.
Disconnect the air supply, when the fastener is jammed in the pneumatic tool. When
the pneumatic tool is still connected to the
power supply, it can accidentally be actuated
when removing a jammed fastener.
f Use caution when removing a jammed or stuck fastener. The system can be under tension and cause the
fastener to be shot or thrust out, while attempting to
clear the jam.

Make sure to check whatever is below or behind your
workpiece. Do not shoot nails into walls, ceilings or
floors, when persons are behind them. The nails can
burst through the workpiece and injure someone.
Do not shoot a nail onto an already driven-in one. This
could cause the nail to deform, the nails could become
jammed or the pneumatic tool could move uncontrolled.
When the pneumatic tool is used under cold ambient conditions, the first nails will be driven in slower than usual.
Once the pneumatic tool has warmed up during working,
normal operating speed will be regained.
Avoid blank shots in order to reduce the wear of the impact striker.
For longer work breaks or after finishing work, disconnect the pneumatic tool from the air supply and empty
the magazine.
Emptying the Magazine
– Pull back the magazine slider 7 until it engages at the
rear.
– Remove the nail strips 14.
Discard nail strips with less than 5 nails.
– Completely pull back the magazine slider 7 once more
to free the lock.
– Carefully guide the magazine slider to the front until it
touches the beginning of the magazine.
Note: Do not let the magazine slider snap back without
guiding it. Otherwise, the magazine slider could become
damaged, and there is danger of your fingers being
caught or pinched.
