Use the right product for the right job. There
are certain applications for which this product was
designed. Do not use small equipment to do the
work of larger industrial equipment. Do not use this
product for a purpose for which it was not intended.
Air Source
a.
b.
Never connect to an air source that
is capable of exceeding 200 PSI.
Over pressurizing the tool may cause
bursting, abnormal operation,
breakage of the tool or serious injury
to persons. Use only clean, dry, regulated
compressed air at the rated pressure or within the
rated pressure range as marked on the tool. Always
verify prior to using the tool that the air source has
been adjusted to the rated air pressure or within the
rated air-pressure range.
Never use oxygen, carbon dioxide, combustible
gases or any bottled gas as an air source
for the tool. Such gases are capable of
explosion and serious injury to persons.

Initial Tool Set Up/Assembly
Operating Instructions
Read the entire Important Safety
Information section at
the beginning of this manual including
all text under subheadings therein before
set up or use of this product.
Read the entire Important Safety
Information section at
the beginning of this manual including
all text under subheadings therein before
set up or use of this product.
Read and understand your air compressor’s
(sold separately) instruction manual before
using with this product. Follow all safety
warnings for your air compressor.
Inspect tool before use, looking for damaged,
loose, and missing parts. If any problems
are found, do not use tool until repaired.
Note: For additional information regarding the
parts listed in the following pages, refer to the
Assembly Diagram near the end of this manual.

Air Supply
Set the Extractor on a flat, level surface.
Ball Valve (4)
(Closed position)
TO PREVENT EXPLOSION:
Use only clean, dry, regulated, compressed
air to operate this tool. Do not use oxygen,
carbon dioxide, combustible gases, or any
other bottled gas as a power source for this tool.
Figure A
2.
Note: The Extractor may be shipped with
a protective plug covering the air inlet.
Remove this plug before set up.
Close the Ball Valve Lever (4) on the Hose (5)
by turning its handle perpendicular to the Hose.
See Figure A. Hand tighten Emptying Cap (9).
Note: Air flow, and therefore tool performance,
can be hindered by undersized air supply
components. The compressor air hose must
be long enough to reach the work area.
Air Inlet
1/4" NPT
Before connecting the air compressor to depressurize
the Oil Extractor, run the air compressor to
make sure it is in good working order.
1.
Turn on the air compressor according to
the manufacturer’s directions and allow it
to build up pressure until it cycles off.
2.
Adjust the Air Compressor’s Pressure Regulator
so that the air output is enough to properly
power the tool, but the output will not exceed
the tool’s maximum air pressure at any time.
Turn the knob clockwise to increase the pressure
and counter-clockwise to decrease pressure.
Adjust the pressure gradually, while checking
the air output gauge to set the pressure.
3.
Inspect the air connections for leaks.
Repair any leaks found.
4.
If the compressor will not be used at this time, turn
off the air supply and safely discharge any residual
air pressure to prevent accidental operation.

3.
Connect compressed air (sold separately)
(recommended 90 PSI) to coupler. See Figure B.
Adjust the air compressor’s output regulator so
that the air output is enough to properly power
the Extractor, but the output will not exceed the
Extractor’s maximum air pressure at any time.
Adjust the pressure gradually, while checking the
air output gauge to set the right pressure range.
WARNING! Do not exceed 110 PSI air pressure.
