Vibration Precautions
particularly to the hands, arms and shoulders.
To reduce the risk of vibration-related injury:
1.
Anyone using vibrating tools regularly
or for an extended period should first
be examined by a doctor and then have
regular medical check-ups to ensure
medical problems are not being caused
or worsened from use. Pregnant
women or people who have impaired
blood circulation to the hand, past hand
injuries, nervous system disorders,
diabetes, or Raynaud’s Disease
should not use this tool. If you feel any
symptoms related to vibration (such as
tingling, numbness, and white or blue
fingers), seek medical advice as soon as
possible.
2.
Do not smoke during use. Nicotine

TO PREVENT
EXPLOSION:
Use only clean, dry, regulated,
compressed air to power this
tool. Do not use oxygen, carbon
dioxide, combustible gases, or
any other bottled gas as a power
source for this tool.
1.
Connect a regulator valve, an in-line shut
off valve and 1/4” NPT air hose (all sold
separately) to the Quick Coupler. Use
thread tape on all threaded connections.
The air hose must be long enough to
reach the work area with enough extra
length to allow free movement while
working. An in-line shutoff ball valve
is an important safety device because
it controls air supply even if the air
hose is ruptured. The shutoff valve
should be a ball valve because it can
be closed quickly. See pages 8 and 9
for Air Tool Setup procedures.
Note: If an automatic oiler system is not
used, add a few drops of Pneumatic
Tool Oil into the airline connection before
operation. Add a few more drops after
each hour of continual use.

Attach air hose to the compressor’s air
outlet. Connect the air hose to the air
inlet of the tool. Other components, such
as a coupler plug and quick coupler, will
make operation more efficient, but are
not required.
WARNING! TO PREVENT SERIOUS
INJURY FROM ACCIDENTAL
OPERATION:
Do not install a quick coupler on the
tool. A coupler contains an air valve that
will allow the air tool to retain pressure
and operate accidentally after the air
supply is disconnected.
Note: Air flow, and therefore tool
performance, can be hindered by
undersized air supply components.
3.
The air hose must be long enough to
reach the work area with enough extra
length to allow free movement while
working.
4.
Release the Trigger.
5.
Close the in-line safety valve between
the compressor and the tool.
6.
Turn on the air compressor according to
the manufacturer’s directions and allow it
to build up pressure until it cycles off.
7.
Adjust the air compressor’s output
regulator so that the air output is enough
to properly power the tool, but the output
will not exceed the tool’s maximum
air pressure at any time. Adjust the
pressure gradually, while checking the
air output gauge to set the right pressure
range.
8.
The air pressure setting must not exceed
job site regulations/restrictions. The air
pressure setting must not exceed 90 PSI
when being used with work pieces that
have a thickness of less than 1-3/4”.
Page 10
9.
Staple some scrap material and observe
staple penetration. Adjust the regulator
accordingly.
10. Inspect the air connections for leaks.
Repair any leaks found.
11. If the tool will not be used at this time,
turn it off and detach the air supply,
safely discharge any residual air
pressure, and release the trigger to
prevent accidental operation.
12. Rotate the Air Deflector (26) so that the
exhaust air blows out away from your
face.
Note: Residual air pressure should not be
present after the tool is disconnected
from the air supply. However, it is a
good safety measure to attempt to
discharge the tool in a safe fashion after
disconnecting to ensure that the tool is
disconnected and unpowered.
