Warnings*
WARNING
Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Failure
to follow the warnings and instructions may result
in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
SAVE ALL WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS
FOR FUTURE REFERENCE!
The term "power tool" in the warnings refers to your
mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated
(cordless) power tool.
Work Area Safety
• Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or
dark areas invite accidents.
• Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable
liquids, gases, or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
• Keep children and by-standers away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose
control.
Electrical Safety
modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools.
Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce
risk of electric shock.
• Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electrical shock
if your body is earthed or grounded.
• Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk
of electrical shock.
• Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for
carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase
the risk of electric shock.
• When operating a power tool outdoors, use an
extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a
cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
• If operating a power tool in a damp location is
unavoidable, use a ground fault circuit interrupter
(GFCI) protected supply. Use of a GFCI reduces
the risk of electric shock.
• Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never
* The text used in the General Power Tool Safety Warnings section of this manual is verbatim, as required, from the applicable UL/CSA 60745 standard. This
section contains general safety practices for many different types of power tools. Not every precaution applies to every tool, and some do not apply to this tool.

Personal Safety
• Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not
use a power tool while you are tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may
result in serious personal injury.
• 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.
• Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch
is in the OFF-position before connecting to power
source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying
the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the
switch or energizing power tools that have the switch
ON invites accidents.
• Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool ON. A wrench or a key left
attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result
in personal injury.
• Store idle power tools out of the reach of children
and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these instructions to operate the power
tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands of
untrained users.
• Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any
other condition that may affect the power tool’s operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired
before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly
maintained power tools.
• Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less
likely to bind and are easier to control.
• Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc.
in accordance with these instructions, taking into
account the working conditions and the work to be
performed. Use of the power tool for operations different from those intended could result in a hazardous
situation.
Battery Tool Use and Care
• Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the
power tool in unexpected situations.
• Recharge only with the charger specified by the
manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type
of battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with
another battery pack.
• Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves away
from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long
hair can be caught in moving parts.
• Use power tools only with specifically designated
battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may
create a risk of injury and fire.
• 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.
• When battery pack is not in use, keep it away
from other metal objects, like paper clips, coins,
keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects
that can make a connection from one terminal to
another. Shorting the battery terminals together may
cause burns or a fire.
Power Tool Use and Care
• Do not force power tool. Use the correct power tool
for your application. The correct power tool will do the
job better and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
• Do not use power tool if the switch does not turn it
ON and OFF. Any power tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be
repaired.
• Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or
the battery pack from the power tool before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or
storing power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
• Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected
from the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts
eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid ejected
from the battery may cause irritation or burns.
Service
• Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair
person using only identical replacement parts.
This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is
maintained.

Description and Specifications
Description
The RIDGID® RP 340 Press Tool, when used with appropriate jaw sets, is designed to mechanically press fittings onto tubing to create a water-tight and permanent
seal. When the switch on the RP 340 is depressed, an
internal electric motor powers a hydraulic pump which
forces fluid into the cylinder of the tool, forcing the ram forward and applying thousands of pounds of pressing force
onto specially designed fittings. Attachments are also
available for other uses.
The entire cycle duration is approximately five (5) seconds.
Once the cycle begins to deform a fitting, it will automatically continue until completion, even if the trigger switch
is released. The LED displays on the top of the tool indicate problems such as improper temperature, open jaw
mounting pin or maintenance required.
