SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING:
WHEN USING THIS TOOL, BASIC SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
SHOULD ALWAYS BE FOLLOWED TO REDUCE THE RISK OF
PERSONAL INJURY, INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING:
2
READ ALL
INSTRUCTIONS.
For personal safety and proper operation and maintenance
of the tool, read this instruction manual carefully before using
the tool.
Always wear safety glasses to protect your eyes from dust or
nail injury. The safety glasses should conform with the
requirements of ANSI Z87.1 - 1979.
•
WARNING:
It is an employer’s responsibility to enforce the use of
safety eye protection equipment by the tool operators
and by other persons in the immediate working area.
Wear hearing protection to protect your ears against exhaust
noise and head protection. Also wear light but not loose
clothing. Sleeves should be buttoned or rolled up. No necktie
should be worn.
Rushing the job or forcing the tool is dangerous. Handle the
tool carefully. Do not operate when under the influence of
alcohol, drugs or the like.
3
General Tool Handling Guidelines:
1. Always assume that the tool contains fasteners.
2. Do not point the tool toward yourself or anyone whether
it contains fasteners or not.
3. Do not actuate the tool unless the tool is placed firmly
against the workpiece.
4. Respect the tool as a working implement.
5. No horseplay.
6. Do not hold or carry the tool with a finger on the trigger.
7. Do not load the tool with fasteners when any one of the
operating controls is activated.
8. Do not operate the tool with any power source other than
that specified in the tool operating/safety instructions.
An improperly functioning tool must not be used.
Sparks sometimes fly when the tool is used. Do not use the
tool near volatile, flammable materials such as gasoline, thinner, paint, gas, adhesives, etc.: they will ignite and explode,
causing serious injury.
The area should be sufficiently illuminated to assure safe
operations. The area should be clear and litter- free. Be
especially careful to maintain good footing and balance.
4
Only those involved in the work should be in the vicinity. Children especially must be kept away at all times.
There may be local regulations concerning noise which must
be complied with by keeping noise levels within prescribed
limits. In certain cases, shutters should be used to contain
noise.
Shutter
Bang !
Securing the trigger in the ON position is also very dangerous. Never attempt to fasten the trigger.
Do not operate a tool if any portion of the toot operating controls is inoperable, disconnected, altered, or not working
properly.
Trigger
Operate the tool within the specified air pressure of 4.5 - 8.5
kgf/cm²G (65 - 120 PSIG) for safety and longer tool life. Do
not exceed the recommended max. operating pressure of 8.5
kgf/cm²G (120 PSIG). The toot should not be connected to a
source whose pressure potentially exceeds 14.0 kgf/cm²G
(200 PSIG).
Never use the tool with other than compressed air. If bottled
gas (carbon dioxide, oxgen, nitrogen, hydrogen, air, etc.) or
combustible gas (hydrogen, propane, acetylene, etc.) is used
as a power source for this toot, the tool will explode and
cause serious injury.
5
Always check the tool for its overall condition and loose
screws before operation. Tighten as required.
Make sure the safety system is in working order before operation. The tool must not operate if only the nail guide is
pressed against the wood.
Nail guide
Trigger
Adjuster
Test for possible faulty operation with nails unloaded and the
adjuster set to the number 1.
Check walls, ceilings, floors, roofing and the like carefully to
avoid possible electrical shock, gas leakage, explosions, etc.
caused by striking live wires, conduits or gas pipes.
Gas pipe
Live wire
Use only nails specified in this manual. The use of any other
nails may cause malfunction of the tool.
Do not permit those uninstructed to use the tool.
6
Make sure no one is nearby before nailing. Never attempt to
nail from both the inside and outside at the same time. Nails
may rip through and /or fly off, presenting a grave danger.
Watch your footing and maintain your balance with the tool.
Make sure there is no one below when working in high locations, and secure the air hose to prevent danger if there is
sudden jerking or catching.
On rooftops and other high locations, nail as you move forward. It is easy to lose your footing if you nail while inching
backward. When nailing against perpendicular surface, nail
from the top to the bottom. You can perform nailing operations with less fatigue by doing so.
A nail will be bent or the tool can become jammed if you mistakenly nail on top of another nail or strike a knot in the wood.
The nail may be thrown and hit someone, or the tool itself
can react dangerously. Place the nails with care.
Nail
Do not leave the loaded tool or the air compressor under
pressure for a long time out in the sun. Be sure that dust,
sand, chips and foreign matter will not enter the tool in the
place where you leave it setting.
7
DO not point the ejection port at anyone in the vicinity. Keep
hands and feet away from the ejection port area.
When the air hose is connected, do not carry the tool with
your finger on the trigger or hand it to someone in this condition. Accidental firing can be extremely dangerous.
Handle the tool carefully as there is high pressure inside the
tool that can be dangerous if a crack is caused by rough handling (dropping or striking). Do not attempt to carve or
engrave on the tool.
Thump
Stop nailing operations immediately if you notice something
wrong or out of the ordinary with the tool.
Always disconnect the air hose and remove the nail:
1. When unattended.
2. Before performing any maintenance or repair.
3. Before cleaning a jam.
4. Before moving the tool to a new location.
8
Perform cleaning and maintenance right after finishing the
job. Keep the tool in tip-top condition. Lubricate moving parts
to prevent rusting and minimize friction related wear. Wipe off
all dust from the parts.
Do not operate this tool if it does not contain a legible WARNING LABEL.
Do not modify tool without authorization from Makita.
Ask Makita’s Factory or Authorized service center for periodical inspection of the tool.
To maintain product SAFETY and RELIABILITY, maintenance and repairs should be performed by Makita Authorized
or Factory Service Centers, always using Makita replacement parts.

TOOL
INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS
AND USE
Selecting compressor
The air compressor must comply with the requirements of
ANSI B19.3 - 1981.
Select a compressor that has ample pressure and air output
to assure cost-efficient operation. The graph shows the relation between nailing frequency and compressor air output at
a compression of 8.5 kgf/cm²G (120 PSIG). Thus, for example, when you drive about 10 nails 3.75 mm x 90 mm (0.148”
x 3-1/2”) per minute, a compressor with an air output over 55
l/minute is required. Pressure regulators must be used to
limit air pressure to the rated pressure of the tool where air
supply pressure exceeds the tool’s rated pressure. Failure to
do so may result in serious injury to tool operator or persons
in the vicinity.
NOTE:
•
Nail size indicates diameter x length.
Selecting air hose
Use an air hose as large and as short as possible to assure
continuous, efficient nailing operation. With an air pressure of
5 kgf/cm²G (70 PSIG), an air hose with an internal diameter
of over 8.5 mm (5/16”) and a length of less than 20 m (6.6 ft.)
is recommended when the interval between each nailing is
0.5 seconds. Air supply hoses shall have a minimum working
pressure rating of 10.7 kgf/cm²G (150 PSIG) or 150 percent
of the maximum pressure produced in the system whichever
is higher.
CAUTION:
Low air output of the compressor, or a long or smaller
diameter air hose in relation to the nailing frequency may
cause a decrease in the driving capability of the tool.
10
Lubrication
To insure maximum performance, install an air set (oiler, regulator, air filter) as close as possible to the tool. Adjust the
oiler so that one drop of oil will be provided for every 20 nails.
When an air set is not used, oil the tool with pneumatic tool
oil by placing 2 (two) or 3 (three) drops into the air fitting. This
should be done before and after use. For proper lubrication,
the tool must be fired a couple of times after pneumatic tool
oil is introduced.

Gauge
CAUTION:
Do not drive hardened steel nails or stainless steel nails
into concrete or steel plate. If you do so, the nailer may
be adversely affected.
Always check the size of the nail head with the gauge on the
nail guide before loading the nailer. Different size nails may
be mixed up in the nails you purchase locally.
Do not use nails with a head size larger than D1 or smaller
than D2. Nails with a head size larger than D1 cannot be
inserted into the nail guide. Nails with a head size smaller
than D2 may move into the contact arm and cannot be
driven.

Adjusting depth of nailing
•
CAUTION:
Always disconnect the hose before adjusting the depth
of nailing.
To adjust the depth of nailing, turn the adjuster so that the
arrow above the adjuster will point to the number indicated
on the adjuster. The depth of nailing is the deepest when the
arrow points to the number 1. It will become shallower as the
arrow points to higher number. The depth can be changed in
approx. 1.5 mm (1/16”) increments per graduation. If nails
cannot be driven deep enough even when the arrow points to
the number 1, increase the air pressure.

Slip the air socket of the air hose onto the air fitting on the
nailer. Be sure that the air socket locks firmly into position
when installed onto the air fitting. A hose coupling must be
installed on or near the tool in such a way that the pressure
reservoir will discharge at the time the air supply coupling is
disconnected.
Operation
Driving surface
•
CAUTION:
Make sure the safety system is in working order before
operation.
To start driving, place the tip of the nail against the driving
surface and pull the trigger. At the start of driving, apply gentle downward pressure on the nailer in the arrow direction to
hold the nail firmly. When the impact of the contact arm
stops, the driving operation is over. If the nail is not driven
deep enough, place the ejection port of the nailer over the
nail head. Press the nailer against the driving surface firmly
and pull the trigger to do additional driving of the nail.
Trigger
NOTE:
•
The nailer will not operate unless you apply sufficient
pressure to the contact arm. If this occurs, apply forward
pressure to the nailer again while pulling the trigger to
start operation.
Nailing with one or two impacts
1 Set the tip of the nail firmly
against driving surface.
2 Pull trigger.
When you need to position a nail or drive a shallow nail:
1. Set the tip of the nail firmly against the driving surface.
2. Pull the trigger.
3 Withdaw nailer from driving surface
immediately after one or two impacts.
3. Withdaw the nailer from the driving surface immediately
after one or two impacts.
NOTE:
•
The impacts will continue as long as you keep the nailer
pressed up against the driving surface, even if you
release the trigger.

MAINTENANCE
•
CAUTION:
Always disconnect the hose before attempting to
perform inspection or maintenance.
Maintenance of nailer
Always check the tool for its overall condition and loose
screws before operation. Tighten as required.
With tool disconnected, make daily inspection to assure free
movement of the nail guide and trigger. Do not use tool if the
nail guide or trigger sticks or binds.
Trigger
Nail guide
When the tool is not to be used for an extended period of
time, lubricate the tool using pneumatic tool oil and store the
tool in a safe place. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight and/or
a humid or hot environment.
15
Maintenance of compressor, air set and air hose
After operation, always drain the compressor tank and the air
filter. If moisture is allowed to enter the tool, it may result in
poor performance and possible tool failure.
Check regularly to see if there is sufficient pneumatic oil in
the oiler of the air set. Failure to maintain sufficient lubrication will cause O-rings to wear quickly.
Keep the air hose away from heat (over 60°C, over 140°F),
away from chemicals (thinner, strong acids or alkalis). Also,
route the hose away from obstacles which it may become
dangerously caught on during operation. Hoses must also be
directed away from sharp edges and areas which may lead
to damage or abrasion to the hose.
To maintain product SAFETY and RELIABILITY, maintenance and repairs should be performed by Makita Authorized
or Factory Service Centers, always using Makita replacement parts.
