THE COMPRESSED AIR SUPPLY
AIR SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS
WARNING: COMPRESSED AIR CAN BE DANGEROUS. ENSURE THAT YOU
ARE FAMILIAR WITH ALL PRECAUTIONS RELATING TO THE USE OF
COMPRESSORS AND COMPRESSED AIR SUPPLY.
• Use only clean, dry, regulated compressed air as a power source.
• Air compressors used with the impact wrench must comply with the
appropriate European Community Safety Directives.
• A build-up of moisture or oil in the air compressor will accelerate
wear and corrosion in the impact wrench. ensure any moisture is
drained from the compressor daily and the inlet filter is kept clean.
• If an unusually long air hose is required,(over 8 metres), the line
pressure or the hose inside diameter may need to be increased. The
minimum hose diameter should be 5/16”(8mm) ID and fittings should
have the same internal dimensions.
• Never exceed the maximum operating pressure for the wrench. It is
recommended that air pressure to this tool does not exceed 90 psi
at the tool when running. Higher pressures and unclean air will
shorten the life of the tool due to faster wear and is a possible safety
hazard.
• The air hose must must be rated at least 150% of the maximum
operating pressure of the tool.

Parts & Service: 020 8988 7400 / E-mail: Parts@clarkeinternational.com or Service@clarkeinternational.com
• A typical air line layout is shown above. If an automatic in-line filter/
regulator is used,it will keep the tool in good condition, but should be
regularly checked and topped up with oil. SAE 10 oil should be used,
and the lubricator adjusted to approx 2 drops per minute.
BEFORE USE
WARNING: COMPRESSED AIR CAN BE DANGEROUS. ENSURE THAT YOU
ARE FAMILIAR WITH ALL PRECAUTIONS RELATING TO THE USE OF AIR
COMPRESSORS AND COMPRESSED AIR SUPPLY.
NOTE: Ensure the compressor is turned off.
1. If required, connect an in-line mini
oiler to the tool.
• A mini oiler helps to prolong the
life of the impact wrench.
Remove the oil fill screw from
the side of the mini oiler and fill
with Air-line Oil available from
your CLARKE dealer. Replace
the screw before using the
wrench.
Oil Fill Screw
Mini Oiler
2. If a mini-oiler is not being used, run
a few drops of oil through the tool
before use. It can be entered
through the inlet strainer or via the
hose at the nearest connection to
the air supply.
3. Connect a suitable hose as shown.
4. Connect the other end of the hose
to the compressor.
5. Your impact wrench is now ready
for use.
You can fit a whip hose with a quick fit coupling if required (available from
your Clarke dealer.)

USING THE FORWARD/REVERSE BUTTON
WARNING: WAIT UNTIL THE ANVIL HAS STOPPED ROTATING BEFORE
OPERATING THE FORWARD/REVERSE BUTTON.
Forward/Reverse rotation is selected by pushing the combined Forward/
Reverse knob/power regulator in the direction shown by the arrow on the
back of the wrench.
1. For normal tightening, the wrench
should be operated in the forward
(F) direction.
2. For loosening, the wrench should
be operated in the reverse (R)
direction.
FITTING THE IMPACT SOCKET
WARNING: NEVER USE STANDARD SOCKETS. THESE MAY SHATTER WITH
SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES. ONLY USE IMPACT SOCKETS DESIGNED FOR
USE WITH IMPACT TOOLS.
1. Select the impact socket you
require, which must be in good
condition and fit the tool exactly.
Push the socket onto the anvil as
shown.

OPERATION
OPERATING THE IMPACT WRENCH
1. Locate the socket over the nut to
be tightened or loosened.
2. Squeeze the trigger to start the
wrench.
3. Release the trigger switch to stop
the wrench.
• The anvil will continue to rotate
very briefly after the trigger has
been released.
ADJUSTING THE POWER
1. To adjust the power, set the air
regulator to one of the 5 settings
available.(Setting 1-Low, 5 -High)
If you start by turning the regulator to
its lowest setting and applying the
wrench to a nut of known tightness (or
torque setting), you can then
gradually turn the regulator until the
nut or bolt moves very slightly in the
direction in which it was set. The
wrench is now set to replicate that tightness. Note the setting for future use.
When critical torque values are not required, tighten the nut or bolt until
secure, then turn a further quarter to a half turn, assuming no gaskets are
being used between surfaces. For additional power on disassembly work, turn
the regulator to its highest setting.
DISCONNECTING THE AIR SUPPLY
Do not disconnect the air supply hose until the compressor has been shut
down and the compressed air released.
1. Refer to the compressor instruction manual for the procedure to shut down
and release the compressed air.
2. Once the pressure has been released, disconnect the air supply hose from
the impact wrench.
Store the wrench safely in its box in a dry, secure environment.

MAINTENANCE
WARNING: MAKE SURE THAT THE IMPACT WRENCH IS DISCONNECTED
FROM THE AIR SUPPLY BEFORE STARTING ANY CLEANING, OR
MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES.
DAILY
• Before use, drain water from the air tank, air line and compressor.
• Pour a few drops of CLARKE airline oil, into the air inlet. This should be
carried out regardless of whether or not an in-line mini oiler is used. If
an inline mini oiler is not used, this procedure should be repeated
after every two to three hours of use.
WEEKLY
• Check the air inlet screen filter
for blockage and clean if
necessary.
MONTHLY (IF IN CONSTANT USE)
• Grease the clutch mechanism
once a month if in constant
use, by removing the hammer
case (item 38) and applying 3/
4oz (22ml) of good quality
bearing grease. Ensure that the
screws connecting the hammer case are tightly secured.
CLEANING
• Keep the body of the impact wrench clean and free from debris.
Grit or gum deposits in the tool may reduce efficiency.
SERVICE AND REPAIR
If the tool runs erratically or becomes inefficient although the air supply is in
good order, it may be necessary to dismantle the air motor and impacting
clutch and replace any worn or damaged parts. Such servicing and repair
work should be carried out by qualified service technicians.
PERFORMANCE
Please note that factors other than the tool may effect its operation and
efficiency such as reduced compressor output, excessive drain on the airline
10
Parts & Service: 020 8988 7400 / E-mail: Parts@clarkeinternational.com or Service@clarkeinternational.com
moisture or restrictions in the air-line, or the use of connectors of improper size
or poor condition which will reduce air supply.
Grit or gum deposits inside the tool may also reduce its efficiency. This
condition can be corrected by cleaning out the air strainer and flushing out
the tool with gum solvent or oil, or failing this, the motor may require
dismantling.
**Clarke Air Line Oil (part no. 3050825) is available from your CLARKE dealer.
STORAGE
If the tool is to be stored, or is idle for longer than 24 hours, run a few drops of
Clarke air line oil into the air inlet, and run the tool for 5 seconds in order to
lubricate the internal parts.
When not in use, disconnect from air supply, clean tool and store in a safe, dry
place.
ACCESSORIES
A wide range of accessories is available including filter/regulators, lubricators,
high-pressure hoses (5 to 50 metres) etc.
