RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION
The employer and/or user must ensure that proper eye protection is worn.
Eye protection equipment must conform to the requirements of the American
National Standards Institute, ANSI Z87.1-1989 and provide both frontal and side
protection. NOTE: Non-side shielded spectacles and face shields alone do not
provide adequate protection.
CAUTION: Additional Safety Protection will be required in some environments.
For example, the working area may include exposure to noise level which can
lead to hearing damage. The employer and user must ensure that any necessary
hearing protection is provided and used by the operator and others in the work
area. Some environments will require the use of head protection equipment.
When required, the employer and user must ensure that head protection
conforming to ANSI Z89.1 1986 is used.
1. All users must read and fully understand all information contained in this owner’s manual before
assembling, operating, or maintaining this air compressor.

4. Never exceed the pressure rating of any component within the air system (including, but not
limited to, spray guns, hose and hose connections).
5. Always wear eye protection when operating.
6. Operate compressor only in a dry, clean, and well-ventilated area.
7. Inspect all components before use for any signs of wear or damage. Do not operate compressor if
any deficiency is found. Contact your Authorized BOSTITCH Service Center for replacement parts
and service.
8. Compressed air blast must never be aimed at anyone. Accidental discharge may result in serious
injury.
9. Keep children away from area of operation.
10. All air compressors generate heat even under normal operating conditions. To avoid serious burns
never touch the cylinder head parts or tubing during or immediately after operation.
11. Always shut the air compressor off by the power switch before unplugging. This allows the
unloader valve to properly function resulting in easier starting.
12. Do not abuse the power cord. Use only the handle to transport the air compressor.
13. Avoid the use of an extension cord; instead use a longer airline.
14. Operate at the air compressors rated voltage.
15. Keep work area clean and free from debris.

prevent against shocks.
18. Drain tanks of moisture daily by opening the drain cocks. Leave drain cocks open if unit is not to
be used for any length of time. This will allow moisture to completely drain from the tanks and help
prevent corrosion.
19. Never tamper with the safety valve or pressure switch settings. See only an Authorized
BOSTITCH Service Center to service and maintain these components. Any adjustments to
this valve could cause serious injury.
20. Use only Genuine BOSTITCH replacement parts.
21. Save this owner’s manual with the air compressor and allow all other operators to completely read
and fully understand the manual.

ELECTRICAL GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
NOTICE: To aid in removal and to prevent breakage of the
tee or other fittings:
When removing the fitting(s) from the tank, it may
be necessary to apply heat to the area of the threads.
– USE CAUTION WHEN APPLYING HEAT –
WHEN SPRAYING LACQUER OR OTHER FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS, THERE IS A
DANGER OF FIRE OR EXPLOSION. SPRAYING AREA MUST BE WELL-VENTILATED AND AWAY
FROM ANY OPEN FLAME. DO NOT SMOKE. LOCATE COMPRESSOR MAXIMUM DISTANCE
FROM SPRAYING AREA. TO MINIMIZE RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE TO
RAIN. STORE INDOORS.
SAFETY VALVE – The safety valve is set to avoid over pressurization of the air tanks. It is present at
140 PSIG and will not function unless tank pressure reaches this pressure. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO
ADJUST OR ELIMINATE THIS SAFETY DEVICE.
DO NOT PERFORM WELDING OPERATIONS ON THE AIR TANK OF THIS
COMPRESSOR. WELDING ON THE AIR COMPRESSOR TANK CAN SEVERELY IMPAIR TANK
STRENGTH AND CAUSE AN EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS CONDITION. WELDING ON THE TANK IN
ANY MANNER WILL VOID THE WARRANTY.
ASSEMBLY
This product should be electrically grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding
reduces the risk of electrical shock by providing an escape wire for electrical current. This product is
equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with an appropriate grounding plug. The plug must be
plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances. This product is shipped for use on a nominal 115 volt, and has a grounding plug that looks
like the plug in illustration A. A temporary adapter, which looks like the adapter illustrated in illustration
B, may be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle as shown in illustration B if a properly
grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only until a qualified electrician
can install a properly grounded outlet (Illustration A). The green colored rigid lug, or wire extending
from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box
cover (Illustrations B & C). Whenever the adapter is used it must be held in place by a metal screw.
IMPROPER INSTALLATION OF THE GROUNDING PLUG CAN RESULT IN A RISK OF
ELECTRIC SHOCK. If a repair or replacement cord is necessary, do not connect the grounding wire to
either flat blade terminal. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if the grounding instructions are
not completely understood, or if in doubt as to whether this product is properly grounded. Do not modify
the plug provided; if it will not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
The motor of this compressor has a thermal overload protector in the motor winding. If the motor should
overheat, the overload protector will shut off the motor. When the temperature returns to normal, the
motor will restart automatically.

2. Attach airline
3. Plug the unit into a properly grounded outlet.
4. Pull the ON/OFF switch up to the on position. The unit will start and the tank will begin to fill.
5. Adjust the pressure regulator to the proper pressure setting required for the air tool. The pressure
setting can be viewed by reading the needle position on the regulator gauge. To operate the regulator,
pull up on the knob to unlock. Turning the knob clockwise reduces the regulated air pressure, while
turning counter clockwise increases the air pressure. When the proper pressure is reached, lock the
knob by pushing it down.
CAUTION Risk Bursting – Do not adjust regulator to result in output pressure greater than marked
maximum pressure of attachment.
6. The unit is now ready for operation and will cycle itself on and off to keep the tank pressure
maintained as the air is consumed.
7. Shut the unit off by pushing the pressure switch knob to the off position. Never shut the unit off by
unplugging the cord. This will not activate the pump pressure unloader valve, making restarting
difficult.
