IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
INSTRUCTIONS PERTAINING TO A
RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK,
OR INJURY TO PERSONS
WARNING – When using pumps, basic precautions
should always be followed, including the following:
Page 2
b. Do not operate pumps in explosive
atmospheres, such as in the presence of
flammable liquids, gases or dust. Pumps create
sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
c. Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away
while operating the pump. Distractions are able
to result in the loss of control of the pump.
Electrical Safety
a. Do not expose pumps to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a pump will
increase the risk of electric shock.
b. Do not abuse the Power Cables. Never use
the cables for carrying or pulling the pump.
Keep cables away from heat, oil, sharp edges
or moving parts. Damaged or entangled
cables increase the risk of electric shock.
Personal Safety
a. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and
use common sense when operating a pump.
Do not use a pump while you are tired or under
the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication.
A moment of inattention while operating pumps
may result in serious personal injury.
b. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure
the switch is in the off-position before
connecting to the power supply.
c. Do not overreach. Keep proper
footing and balance at all times.
Proper footing and balance enables better
control of the pump in unexpected situations.
d. Use safety equipment. A dust mask,
non‑skid safety shoes and a hard hat must
be used for the applicable conditions.
e. Wear ANSI‑approved safety goggles
during setup and use.
f. 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.
Pump Use and Care
a. Do not force the pump. Use the correct pump for
your application. The correct pump will do the job
better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353.
SKU 66784
b. Do not use the pump if the switch does not turn
it on and off. Any pump that cannot be controlled
with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
c. Disconnect the Cables from the power
supply before making any adjustments,
changing accessories, or storing pumps.
Such preventive safety measures reduce the
risk of starting the pump accidentally.
d. Store idle pumps out of the reach of children and
do not allow persons unfamiliar with the pump or
these instructions to operate the pump. Pumps
are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
e. Maintain pumps. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts
and any other condition that may affect
the pump’s operation. If damaged, have the
pump repaired before use. Many accidents
are caused by poorly maintained pumps.
f. Use the pump, accessories and pump bits
etc. in accordance with these instructions,
taking into account the working conditions
and the work to be performed. Use of
the pump for operations different from those
intended could result in a hazardous situation.
Battery Precautions
a. 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
a. Pump service must be performed only
by qualified repair personnel, using
only identical replacement parts.

30 Minute Duty Cycle
30 minutes welding
followed by
at least 30 minutes of rest
Avoid damage to the Pump by not pumping for
more than the prescribed duty cycle time. The Duty
Cycle defines the number of minutes, within a one hour
period, during which a given pump can pump without
overheating. For example, this Pump with a 30 minute
duty cycle must be allowed to rest for at least 30 minutes
after every 30 minutes of use. Failure to carefully
observe duty cycle limitations can easily over‑stress
a pump contributing to premature pump failure.
This pump has an internal thermal protection system
to help prevent this sort of over-stress. When the
unit overheats, it automatically shuts down, then it
automatically begins pumping again after cooling off.
When the pump can be used again, use shorter pumping
periods and longer rest periods to prevent needless wear.
