SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
EYE PROTECTION which conforms to ANSI specifications and provides protection against
flying particles both from the FRONT and SIDE should ALWAYS be worn by the operator and
others in the work area when connecting to air supply, loading, operating or servicing this
tool. Eye protection is required to guard against flying fasteners and debris, which could
cause severe eye injury.
The employer and/or user must ensure that proper eye protection is worn. Eye protection
equipment must conform to the requirements of the American National Standards Institute,
ANSI Z87.1 and provide both frontal and side protection.
NOTE: Non-side shielded spectacles and face shields alone do not provide adequate
protection.
CAUTION: Additional Safety Protection will be required in some environments. For
example, the working area may include exposure to noise level which can lead to hearing
damage. The employer and user must ensure that any necessary hearing protection is
provided and used by the operator and others in the work area. Some environments will
require the use of head protection equipment. When required, the employer and user must
ensure that head protection conforming to ANSI Z89.1 is used.
Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool.
Do not use tool while tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your hair,
clothing, and gloves away from moving parts.
Keep fingers away from trigger when not driving fasteners to avoid accidental firing.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing and balance
enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations.
Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Stable footing on a solid surface enables better
control of the tool in unexpected situations.
SERVICE
Tool service must be performed only by qualified repair personnel. Service or maintenance
performed by unqualified personnel may result in a risk of injury.
When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement parts. Use of unauthorized parts may
create a risk of injury.
Know your pneumatic tool. Read operator's manual carefully. Learn its applications and
limitations, as well as the specific potential hazards related to this tool. Following this rule
will reduce the risk of electric shock, fire, or serious injury.
Always wear safety glasses with side shields. Everyday glasses have only impact resistant
lenses. They are NOT safety glasses. Following this rule will reduce the risk of eye injury.
Protect your lungs. Wear a face or dust mask if the operation is dusty. Following this rule
will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
Protect your hearing. Wear hearing protection during extended periods of operation.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
Make sure the hose is free of obstructions or snags. Entangled or snarled hoses can cause
loss of balance or footing and may become damaged.
Use the tool only for its intended use. Do not discharge fasteners into open air. Use the
pneumatic tool only for the purpose for which it was designed.
Use only the fasteners recommended for this tool. Use of the wrong fasteners could result
in poor fastener feeding, jammed fasteners, and nails leaving the tool at erratic angles. If
fasteners are not feeding smoothly and properly, discontinue their use immediately.
Jammed and improperly feeding fasteners could result in serious personal injury.
Never use this tool in a manner that could cause a fastener to be directed toward anything
other than the workpiece. Do not use the tool as a hammer.
Do not alter or modify this tool from the original design or function without approval from
the manufacturer.
Always be aware that misuse and improper handling of this tool can cause injury to yourself
and others. Never leave a tool unattended with the air hose attached.

AIR SUPPLY AND CONNECTION
Do not use oxygen, combustible gases, or bottled gases as a power source for this tool as
tool may explode, possibly causing injury or death.
Do not use supply sources which can potentially exceed 200 P.S.I.G. as tool may
burst, possibly causing injury.
The connector on the tool must not hold pressure when air supply is disconnected. If a
wrong fitting is used, the tool can remain charged with air after disconnecting and thus will
be able to drive a fastener even after the air line is disconnected possibly causing injury.
Do not pull trigger or depress contact arm while connected to the air supply as the tool may
cycle, possibly causing injury.
Always disconnect air supply: 1.) Before making adjustments; 2.) When servicing the tool;
3.) When clearing a jam; 4.) When tool is not in use; 5.) When moving to a different work
area, as accidental actuation may occur, possibly causing injury.
LOADING TOOL
When loading tool: 1.) Never place a hand or any other part of the body in fastener
discharge area of tool; 2.) Never point tool at anyone; 3.) Do not pull the trigger or depress
the trip as accidental actuation may occur, possibly causing injury.
OPERATION
Always handle the tool with care: 1.) Never engage in horseplay; 2.) Never pull the trigger
unless nose is directed toward the work; 3.) Keep others a safe distance from the tool while
tool is in operation as accidental actuation may occur, possibly causing injury.
The operator must not hold the trigger pulled on contact arm tools except during fastening
operation as serious injury could result if the trip accidentally contacted someone or
something, causing the tool to cycle.
Keep hands and body away from the discharge area of the tool. A contact arm tool may
bounce from the recoil of driving a fastener and an unwanted second fastener may be
driven possibly causing injury.
Check operation of the contact arm mechanism frequently. Do not use the tool if the arm is
not working correctly as accidental driving of a fastener may result. Do not interfere with
the proper operation of the contact arm mechanism.
Do not drive fasteners on top of other fasteners or with the tool at an overly steep angle as
this may cause deflection of fasteners which could cause injury.
Do not drive fasteners close to the edge of the work piece as the wood may split, allowing
the fastener to be deflected possibly causing injury.
Do not point the tool toward yourself or anyone whether it contains fasteners or not.
Always ensure that the workpiece contact is fully positioned above the workpiece.
Positioning the workpiece contact only partially above the workpiece could cause the
fastener to miss the workpiece completely and result in serious personal injury.
MAINTAINING THE TOOL
When working on tools note the warnings in this manual and use extra care when
evaluating problem tools.

AIR SUPPLY AND CONNECTIONS
Do not use oxygen, combustible gases, or bottled gases as a power source for this tool as
tool may explode, possibly causing injury. Keep the tool pointed away from yourself and
others when connecting air source.
FITTINGS:
Install a male plug on the tool which is free flowing and which will release air pressure from the tool when
disconnected from the supply source.
HOSES:
Air hoses should have a minimum of 150 p.s.i. (10.6 kg/cm2) working pressure rating or 150 percent of the
maximum pressure that could be produced in the air system. The supply hose should contain a fitting that will
provide "quick disconnecting" from the male plug on the tool.
SUPPLY SOURCE:
Use only clean regulated compressed air as a power source for this tool. NEVER USE OXYGEN,
COMBUSTIBLE GASES, OR BOTTLED GASES, AS A POWER SOURCE FOR THIS TOOL AS TOOL MAY
EXPLODE.
REGULATOR:
A pressure regulator with an operating pressure of 0 - 125 p.s.i. (0 - 8.79 kg/cm2) is required to control the
operating pressure for safe operation of this tool. Do not connect this tool to air pressure which can potentially
exceed 200 p.s.i. (14 kg/cm2) as tool may fracture or burst, possibly causing injury.
OPERATING PRESSURE:
Do not exceed recommended maximum operating pressure as tool wear will be greatly increased. The air
supply must be capable of maintaining the operating pressure at the tool. Pressure drops in the air supply can
reduce the tool's driving power. Refer to "TOOL SPECIFICATIONS" for setting the correct operating pressure
for the tool.
FILTER:
Dirt and water in the air supply are major causes of wear in pneumatic tools. A filter will help to get the best
performance and minimum wear from the tool. The filter must have adequate flow capacity for the specific
installation. The filter has to be kept clean to be effective in providing clean compressed air to the tool. Consult
the manufacturer's instructions on proper maintenance of your filter. A dirty and clogged filter will cause a
pressure drop which will reduce the tool's performance.
LUBRICATION
Frequent, but not excessive, lubrication is required for best performance. Oil added through the air line
connection will lubricate the internal parts. Do not use detergent oil or additives as these lubricants will cause
accelerated wear to the seals and bumpers in the tool, resulting in poor tool performance and frequent tool
maintenance.
If no airline lubricator is used, add oil during use into the air fitting on the tool once or twice a day. Only a few
drops of oil at a time is necessary. Too much oil will only collect inside the tool and will be noticeable in the
exhaust cycle.
COLD WEATHER OPERATION:
For cold weather operation, near and below freezing, the moisture in the air line may freeze and prevent tool
operation. We recommend the use of permanent antifreeze (ethylene glycol) as a cold weather lubricant.
CAUTION: Do not store tools in a cold weather environment to prevent frost or ice formation on the
tools operating valves and mechanisms that could cause tool failure.
NOTE:Some commercial air line drying liquids are harmful to “O”-rings and seals – do not use these
low temperature air dryers without checking compatibility.

MAINTAINING THE PNEUMATIC TOOL
When working on air tools, note the warnings in this manual and use extra care evaluating
problem tools.
CAUTION: Pusher spring (constant force spring). Caution must be used when working
with the spring assembly. The spring is wrapped around, but not attached to, a roller. If
the spring is extended beyond its length, the end will come off the roller and the spring
will roll up with a snap, with a chance of pinching your hand. Also the edges of the spring
are very thin and could cut. Care must also be taken to insure no permanent kinks are
put in the spring as this will reduce the springs force.
REPLACEMENT PARTS:
B&C Eagle replacement parts are recommended. Do not use modified parts or parts which will not give
equivalent performance to the original equipment.
ASSEMBLY PROCEDURE FOR SEALS:
When repairing a tool, make sure the internal parts are clean and lubricated. Use a small amount of oil on all
moving surfaces and pivots. After reassembly add a few drops of oil through the air line fitting before testing.
AIR SUPPLY-PRESSURE AND VOLUME:
Air volume is as important as air pressure. The air volume supplied to the tool may be inadequate because of
undersized fittings and hoses, or from the effects of dirt and water in the system. Restricted air flow will prevent
the tool from receiving an adequate volume of air, even though the pressure reading is high. The results will
be slow operation, misfeeds or reduced driving power. Before evaluating tool problems for these symptoms,
trace the air supply from the tool to the supply source for restrictive connectors, swivel fittings, low points
containing water and anything else that would prevent full volume flow of air to the tool.
CAUTION: If the tool does not work as it should, contact a B&C Eagle service center immediately.
