IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
IMPROPER OPERATION OR MAINTENANCE OF THIS PRODUCT COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS
INJURY AND PROPERTY DAMAGE. READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL WARNINGS AND OPERATING
INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS EQUIPMENT.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction
activities contains chemicals known (to the State of California) to cause cancer, birth defects or other
reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
lead from lead-based paints
crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products
arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your
exposure to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment,
always wear MSHA/NIOSH approved, properly fitting face mask or respirator when using such tools.
When using air tools, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of
personal injury.
Use 12 Volt DC only. Make sure that your vehicle 12 Volt power outlet is free of any ash residue or
debris. A dirty 12 Volt power outlet can cause the inflator and power cord to overheat. Overheating can
cause damage to your inflator/vehicle and could cause bodily harm or injury. Disconnect power when
not in use.
This inflator is designed to inflate car tires, bike tires, ATV tires, sports equipment, air mattresses, beach
toys and other inflatables. Do not use for any purpose other than inflating. If you do so, bodily harm or
personal injury can occur.
Caution, allow inflator to cool down 10 minutes after each 10 minutes of continuous operation.
After using, turn off power.
The inflator is not a toy. Keep away from children at all times.
Do not carry inflator by the air hose or power cord as damage may occur.
Do not leave the inflator unattended while in operation.
Do not over inflate. Please follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the item you are inflating
Keep the inflator away from flammable areas/liquids at all times.
Do not operate the inflator in wet or damp areas.
Operate the inflator only with the attachments that are included.
USE SAFETY GLASSES. Also use face or dust mask if operation is dusty. It is recommended that your
vehicle’s 12 Volt battery be fully charged to get the best performance from your inflator. If your vehicle
battery is weak, the inflator will not work at its maximum output level.
2
For best results and more efficient power, it is recommended that you operate your inflator with your
VEHICLE’S ENGINE RUNNING, making absolutely sure you are outside or in an open, well-ventilated
area and NOT INSIDE A CONFINED AREA, SUCH AS A GARAGE as bodily injury or asphyxiation
resulting in death could occur. ALWAYS ALLOW FOR PROPER VENTILATION. Most vehicle 12 Volt
power outlets will operate with vehicle ignition off; however, some vehicles require that the ignition be
turned on.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Save these instructions
Improper operation or maintenance of this product could result in serious injury and property
damage. Read and understand all warnings and operation instructions before using this
equipment.
HAZARD
WARNING: Risk of explosion or fire
What Could Happen
How To Prevent It
It is normal for electrical contacts
within the motor to spark.
Always operate the inflator in a well ventilated
area free of combustible materials, gasoline, or
solvent vapors.
If electrical sparks from inflator
come into contact with
flammable vapors, they may
ignite, causing fire or explosion.
Store flammable materials in a secure location
away from inflator.
Restricting any of the inflator
ventilation openings will cause
serious overheating and could
cause fire.
Never place objects against or on top of inflator.
Operate inflator in an open area at least 12
inches away from any wall or obstruction that
would restrict the flow of fresh air to the ventilation
openings.
Do not operate unit in any confined area.
Unattended operation of this
product could result in personal
injury or property damage. To
reduce the risk of fire, do not
allow the inflator to operate
unattended.
Always remain in attendance with the product
when it is operating. Always disconnect power by
moving on/off switch to the off position and
unplug the power cord.

HAZARD
WARNING: Risk of Bursting
What Could Happen
How To Prevent It
ATTACHMENTS & ACCESSORIES:
Exceeding the pressure rating of air
operated accessories, tires, inflatable
balls, and other inflatables item can
cause them to explode or fly apart,
and could result in serious injury.
Follow the equipment manufacturer’s
recommendation and never exceed the
maximum allowable pressure rating of
attachments or inflatable items.
Unattended tires, inflatable balls,
inflatable toys, and other inflatable
items can over inflate very quickly
sometimes in a matter of seconds and
result in personal or property
damage.
Always remain in attendance when
inflating tires, inflatable balls, inflatable
toys, and other inflatable items. Be
prepared to stop inflator when item is fully
inflated, sometimes in a matter of seconds.
HAZARD
WARNING: Risk from Flying Objects
What Could Happen
How To Prevent It
The inflator air stream can cause soft
tissue damage to exposed skin and
can propel dirt, chips, loose particles,
and small objects at high speed,
resulting in property damage or
personal injury.
Always wear ANSI Z87.1 approved safety
glasses with side shields when using the
inflator.
Never direct compressed air toward any
part of the body or at other people or
animals.
Always turn the inflator off before
attempting maintenance or attaching
accessories.
HAZARD
WARNING: Risk to Breathing
What Could Happen
The compressed air directly from your
inflator is not safe for breathing. The
air stream may contain carbon
monoxide, toxic vapors, or solid
particles from the tank. Breathing
these contaminants can cause
serious injury or death.
How To Prevent It
Air obtained directly from the inflator
should never be used to supply air for
human consumption. In order to use air
produced by this inflator for breathing,
suitable filters and in-line safety
equipment must be properly installed.
In-line filters and safety equipment used
in conjunction with the inflator must be
capable of treating air to all applicable
local and federal codes prior to human
consumption.

HAZARD
WARNING: Risk of Burns
What Could Happen
How To Prevent It
Touching exposed metal such as the
inflator head or outlet tubes, can result
in serious burns.
Never touch any exposed metal parts on
inflator during or immediately after
operation. Inflator will remain hot for
several minutes after operation. Do not
reach around protective shrouds or attempt
maintenance until unit has been allowed
to cool.
HAZARD
WARNING: Risk from Moving Parts
What Could Happen
How To Prevent It
Moving parts such as the pulley,
flywheel, and belt can cause serious
injury if they come into contact with
you, your clothing, loose hair, or
jewelry.
Never operate the inflator with guards or
covers which are damaged or removed.
Attempting to operate inflator with
damaged or missing parts or
attempting to repair inflator with
protective shrouds removed can expose
you to moving parts and can result in
serious injury.
Any repairs required on this product
should be preformed by authorized
service center personnel.
HAZARD
WARNING: Risk of Falling
What Could Happen
An inflator can fall from a table or
workbench causing damage to the
