1.1 - GENERAL OPERATION SAFETY
1. Always perform a pre-operation check before using the air compressor.
2. Operators of the unit should always be wearing appropriate approved
eye and hearing protection. Under some conditions, long durations of
use may contribute to hearing loss.
3. Always operate the air compressor according to the instructions for
safe and dependable service.
4. Always clean and properly maintain the equipment after use.
5. To avoid harm, never operate the compressor in an enclosed area.
6. Pay attention to all warning labels and be careful not to touch the
marked parts of the compressor during and immediately after operation because they may cause burns.
1.2 - AC SAFETY GUIDELINES
Before connecting the compressor to an electrical device or power cord:
1.
Make sure that all parts are in right working order. Faulty devices or
power cords can lead to an electrical shock.
2.
Turn off the air compressor immediately if the device begins to operate
abnormally. Then disconnect the device and investigate the problem.
1.3 - MAINTENANCE SAFETY
1.
Turn off the air compressor before performing any maintenance. Otherwise, it can cause severe personal injury and/or death.
2.
Allow the air compressor to cool down before performing any maintenance.
3.
Only qualified, licensed, and/or certified maintenance personnel with
knowledge of fuels, electricity, and machinery hazards should perform
maintenance procedures.
1.4 - AIR TANK SAFETY
1.
Drain the tank daily or after each use. Make sure to properly drain
condensed water from the tank in order to prevent rust and/or thinning
of the steel tank.
2.
If the tank develops a leak, replace it immediately with a new tank or
new compressor outfit.
3.
Do not attempt to modify or repair the compressor tank. Never drill,
weld, or make any modifications of any kind to the tank or its attachments.
4. Do not attempt to modify the pressure switch, safety valve, or any
other components that control tank pressure. The tank is designed to
HHC2G/3G User Manual
5
withstand specific operating pressures. Never make adjustments or
substitute parts to alter the factory set operating pressures.
1.5 - ATTACHMENTS AND ACCESSORIES SAFETY
1.
Do not exceed the pressure rating of air tools, spray guns, air operated accessories, air tires, hoses, and other inflatables. Exceeding
pressure ratings may cause them to explode or become damaged,
resulting in serious injury.
2.
Make sure to follow the equipment manufacturer’s recommendation
and never exceed the maximum allowable pressure rating of attachments.
3.
Never use the compressor to inflate small, low pressure objects, such
as children’s toys.
1.6 - RISK OF EXPLOSION OR FIRE
1.
Make sure the air compressor is in a well-ventilated area, free of any
combustible or flammable materials, gasoline, or solvent vapours.
2.
Make sure to keep the compressor at least 20 feet away when spraying flammable materials.
3.
Keep all flammable materials in a secure location away from the air
compressor.
4.
Do not restrict any of the compressor’s ventilation openings. This may
cause overheating and could cause a fire.
5.
Make sure to operate the compressor in an open area at least 3 feet
away from any wall or obstruction that could restrict the airflow of the
compressor.
1.7 - RISK OF BURSTING
1.
Make sure to drain the tank after each use. If the tank develops a
leak, replace it immediately with a new tank or new compressor outfit.
2.
Do not attempt to modify or repair the tank. Any drilling, welding, or
other forms of modification may result in serious injury to you and/
or others.
3.
Do not adjust regulator to result in output higher than marked maximum pressure of attachment.
1.8 - RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK
1.
Do not operate in wet environments.
2.
Do not expose the compressor to rain.
3.
Make sure the compressor is properly grounded. Failure to ground
the unit may increase the risk of electrical shock.
6
HHC2G/3G User Manual
4.
All electrical work must be performed by a qualified or licensed/certified electrician.
1.9 - RISK TO BREATHING
1.
Always operate the compressor in a well-ventilated area.
2.
Wear appropriate safety masks to reduce the risk of inhaling any
harmful vapours.
3.
Do not breathe compressed air from the compressor. The compressed air is not breathable and may contain carbon monoxide, toxic
vapours, and/or solid particles.
4.
Sprayed materials such as paint, paint solvents, paint remover, insecticides, weed killers, etc. contain harmful vapours and poisons.
1.10 - RISK OF BURN

1.11 - RISK OF FALLING
1.
Make sure that the compressor is in a stable and secure position
before operating.
1.12 - RISK OF MOVING PARTS
1.
The compressor cycles automatically when the pressure switch is in
the ON position.
2.
Do not remove and safety guards or covers. If guards and/or covers
are damaged or removed, do not operate the compressor.
3.
Make sure to release pressure, turn off, and disconnect the compressor before performing any maintenance or repairs.
4.
Secure any and all loose clothing, hair, or jewellery that may be caught
in the moving parts or the air vents of the compressor.
5.
attachments.

SECTION 6 - START-UP & OPERATION
INITIAL INSPECTION
All air compressors have been inspected carefully before leaving the factory. It
is possible that poor handling during transport caused some damage to the
compressor. Fully inspect the compressor before use.
1.
Inspect the entire unit for any concealed and/or visible damage.
2.
Make sure any damaged parts are replaced and any mechanical issues are repaired by a qualified and licensed/certified mechanic.
PRE-START CHECKLIST
1.
Make sure that the ON/OFF switch is in the OFF position.
2.
Make sure that the tank is fully drained.
3.
Make sure that the tank pressure gauge reads 0 PSI.
4.
Make sure that the drain valves are closed.
5.
Make sure that all covers and safety guards are properly installed and
in place.
INITIAL BREAK-IN PROCEDURE
The following instructions should be followed before the first time the compressor is operated in order to optimize the life of the compressor and to help
prevent any damage to the unit.
1.
Make sure the regulator knob is turned fully counter-clockwise.
2.
Plug the power cord into a properly grounded power outlet.
3.
Open the drain valve in order to allow air to escape and prevent pressure from building up inside the tank.
4.
Turn the ON/OFF switch to the ON position.
5.
Allow the compressor to run for approximately 15 minutes.
6.
Close the drain valve, allowing pressure to build to the cut-out pressure. The compressor will shut off automatically.
7.
Use the compressed air in the tank with an approved attachment or
allow it to bleed out.
START-UP
1.
Make sure the regulator knob is turned fully counter-clockwise.
2.
Plug the power cord into a properly grounded power outlet.
3.
Turn the ON/OFF switch to the ON position.
4.
Allow the compressor to reach the cut-out pressure. The compressor

will shut off automatically.
Attach a hose and the desired accessory to the unit.
Adjust the regulator knob to the desired pressure.
SHUTDOWN
1.
Make sure that the ON/OFF switch is in the OFF position.
2.
Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
3.
Turn regulator knob counter-clockwise until the regulated pressure
gauge reads 0 PSI.
4.
Remove the attached hose and accessory.
5.
Drain all air and water from the air tank.
6.
Once the tank is fully drained, close the drain valve.
7.
Store in a safe, dry, non-freezing area.
STORAGE
1.
Do not store the compressor in areas that are humid and/or subject to
temperature fluctuations. This may result in excess moisture or water
forming in the tank, which may affect the compressors cycle times.
2.
Do not store in areas with excessive dust.
3.
After the ON/OFF switch is in the OFF position, unplug and properly
store the power cord in a protected and safe position.

SECTION 7 - MAINTENANCE
Proper maintenance is important in order to ensure safe, economical, and
trouble-free operation. Improper maintenance may cause the air compressor
to malfunction and can lead to serious injuries or death.
Shut off the compressor before performing any maintenance.
When the engine is running, make sure the area is
well ventilated. The compressed air may contain harmful
vapours or particles.
Use authorized parts or their equivalent. The use of replacement parts which are not equivalent quality may damage the
compressor.
NOTE: Some of these maintenance techniques can be dangerous and must be performed by a qualified technician.
In order to maintain high performance and extend the service life of the compressor, periodical inspection and adjustments should be done based on the
following maintenance schedule:
