•
Never connect a female quick-disconnect coupling to the
tool side of air line connection. A male, free-flow coupling
should be connected to the tool side of air line connection
(see Figure 1).
WARNING= The female coupling provides a seal preventing
loss of compressed air from compressor tank when disconnected from male coupling, if connected to tool side of air
supply, the female coupling could seal a compressed air
charge in the tool which could discharge if the tool trigger is
actuated.

WARNING: Disconnect tool from air supply. Do not load tool
until you are ready to use it. Do not pull trigger or depress
contact trip while loading tool. Always load with nose of tool
pointing away from you and others. Always wear safety goggles that comply with United States ANSI Z87.1.
NOTE: For best results, use Sears fasteners only.
NAILING OPERATION
Depress latch and slide magazine cover open (see
Figure 2).
Refer to Figures 5, 6, 7 & 8 (pages 4 and 5).
WARNING:
Read and follow all safety rules and operating
instructions in this manual and on warning label of tool before
using this tool. Keep this manual with the tool.
WARNING:
Do not use this tool without safety warning
label. If label is missing, damaged or unreadable, contact
Sears to obtain a new label.
WARNING:
Never operate tool unless contact trip is in contact with workpiece. Do not operate tool without fasteners or
damage to tool may result. Never fire fasteners into the air
because fasteners may injure operator or others and damage
to tool may result.
Perform "Safety Mechanism Check" as described in the
Maintenance section (see page 6) prior to first use of tool
and on a daily basis thereafter.
Figure 2 - Open Magazine
The tool is equipped with a rotating switch that can be set
to rapid-fire or single-fire mode (see Figure 5). When the
switch is set to single-fire mode, the tool will not drive a
second fastener until the trigger is fully released and
pulled again.
Insert fasteners into magazine. Position fasteners at bottom
of magazine with head towards top of tool (see Figure 3).
•
When the switch is rotated to rapid-fire
drive fasteners continuously. A fastener
time the contact trip is pressed against
long as the trigger is maintained in the
mode, the tool can
will be fired each
the workpiece, as
pulled position.
Figure 3 - Load Magazine
Slide magazine cover forward over magazine until latch
snaps into place, locking magazine cover (see Figure 4).
Figure 5 - Push and rotate switch to select
Operation Mode
SINGLE-FIRE OPERATION:
•
The air tool is equipped with a contact trip safety mechanism that disables tool unless contact trip is pushed
against work. To drive a fastener hold body firmly and
press contact trip on workpiece where fastener is to be
applied. Pull trigger to drive fastener into workpiece. To fire
a second fastener lift the tool from the workpiece, release
the trigger and then repeat the above sequence.
RAPID-FIRE OPERATION:
•
Figure 4 - Close Magazine
4
The tool can also be operated by holding trigger
depressed and pushing contact trip against workpiece. A
fastener will be driven each time the contact trip is pushed
against the workpiece. This operating procedure provides
rapid-fire fastener driving. Never operate tool unless contact trip is in contact with workpiece.
LOAD INDICATOR
WARNING: All air power fastening tools recoil when operated. This recoil is caused by rapid driving of the fastener. Tool
may bounce from recoil causing a second unwanted fastener
to be driven. Reduce tool bounce by holding tool firmly in
hand and pressing tool gently against workpiece. Let the tool
do the work. This will allow recoil of tool to bounce tool away
from workpiece preventing the driving of second fastener.
The tool is equipped with a load indicator.The load indicator
(colored red) will be visible through the magazine cover window when there are no fasteners in the magazine.
CONTACT TRIP ADJUSTMENT
The contact trip may be adjusted up or down to vary the
depth of the fastener in the workpiece. To adjust, rotate depth
control knob (see Figure 6) to raise or lower contract trip to
desired setting.
Figure 8 - Load Indicator
OPERATING PRESSURE
•
Use only enough air pressure to perform the operation. Air
pressure in excess of that which is required will make the
operation inefficient and may cause premature wear or
damage to the tool.
•
Determine minimum air pressure required by driving some
test fasteners into the workpiece. Set air pressure so that
test fasteners are driven down flush with the work surface.
Fasteners driven too deep may damage workpiece.
Figure 6 - Setting Depth Control
CONTACT TRIP PAD
The tool is equipped with a contact trip pad (see Figure 7)
that prevents marring of finished surfaces by the contact trip
during normal operation. Pad can be removed and stored on
the storage sleeve located on the end cover of the magazine,
Hex wrench is also stored on the magazine.
COLD WEATHER OPERATION
CAUTION: Do not store in cold environment. Frost or ice
could form inside tool affecting operation and damaging tool.
Use a cold temperature lubricant, such as ethylene glycol,
when operating tool in freezing temperatures.
Refer to Figure 9 (page 8).
LUBRICATION
This is an oilless tool. No lubrication is necessary.
MAGAZINE AND PISTON-RAM
•
Keep magazine and nose of tool clean and free of any dirt,
lint or abrasive particles.
The tip of the ram (Fig. 9, No. 11) can become dented or
rounded over time.
•
Figure 7 - Storing Contact Trip Pad and Wrench
5
Square off the tip of the ram with a clean, fine hand file to
extend the life of the ram and tool. Fastener firing will be
more consistent if the ram tip is kept clean and square.
SAFETY MECHANISM CHECK
Inspect contact trip safety mechanism daily for proper operation. Do not operate tool if mechanism is not operating
properly.
With the red push-button switch in the rapid-fire mode, perform the following procedures to test safety mechanism:
•
Leave trigger untouched while pushing contact trip into
workpiece. Tool must not fire.
•
Pull trigger while contact trip is clear of work and pointed
away from operator and others. Tool must not fire.
Depress and hold trigger. Push contact trip against work
where fastener is needed. The tool should drive only one
fastener each time the contact trip is pushed against
workpiece.
If contact trip mechanism does not operate properly,
repair tool immediately through Sears Service Center.
Replace any damaged or missing parts. Use the parts list to
order parts.
REBUILD KITS
Rebuild kits are available as spare parts, (see page 9), Tools
should be rebuilt if tool fails to operate properly after extended
use. See troubleshooting to determine required replacement
