IMPORTANT: To operate correctly, this tool requires airflow that is at least 4.5 cubic feet per minute (CFM)
at 90 pounds per square inch (PSI). Check the specifications of your air compressor to be sure that it can
support both the minimum CFM and PSI required. An air hose may cause up to 15 PSI drop in pressure,
so you may need to set the output higher to maintain the required pressure at the tool.
IMPORTANT : Cet outil nécessite un débit d’air d’au moins 4,5 pi3 par minute à une pression de 90 lb/psi2.
Vérifiez les spécifications de votre compresseur d’air afin de vous assurer qu’il satisfait aux exigences
minimales (pi3/min et lb/psi2). L’utilisation d’un tuyau à air peut entraîner une chute de pression de jusqu’à
15 lb/psi2. Il peut donc s’avérer nécessaire d’augmenter la pression afin de maintenir un niveau adéquat.
IMPORTANTE: Para funcionar de manera correcta, esta herramienta requiere un flujo de aire de por lo
menos 4,5 pies cúbicos por minutos (CFM por sus siglas en inglés) para 90 libras por pulgada cuadrada
(PSI, por sus siglas en inglés). Revise las especificaciones de su compresora de aire para asegurarse de
que puede soportar tanto los CFM como las PSI mínimas requeridas. Una manguera de aire comprimido
puede causar una caída de hasta 15 PSI en la presión, de manera que puede necesitar configurar la
potencia más alta para mantener la presión requerida en la herramienta.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
An in-line oiler is recommended to be installed on air supply line as it increases tool
life and keeps the tool in sustained operation. The in-line oiler should be regularly
checked and filled with air-tool oil. Proper adjustment of the in-line oiler is performed
by placing a sheet of paper next to the tool’s exhaust ports and holding the throttle
open approximately 30 seconds. The in-line oiler is properly set when a light stain of
oil collects on the paper. Excessive amounts of oil should be avoided.
In the event that it becomes necessary to store the tool for an extended period of
time, it should receive a generous amount of lubrication at that time. The tool should
be run for approximately 30 seconds to ensure oil has been evenly distributed
throughout the tool. The tool should be stored in a clean and dry environment.
Recommended lubricants: use air-tool oil or any other high-grade turbine oil
containing moisture absorbent, rust inhibitors, metal wetting agents and an EP
(extreme pressure) additive.
Clean the tool all over with a cotton rag after each use. Keep the tool in a dry and
safe place out of reach of children.
