and tool labels before operating.
• Always wear safety glasses with side shields that meet ANSI Z87.1 requirements when
operating the tool. Make sure all others in work area wear safety glasses.
• Always wear hearing protection to protect your hearing from noise. Prolonged exposer to loud
noise can result in hearing loss.
• TO LOAD: Point tool in a safe direction, lightly place one nail in the guide bushing tip. A
magnet in the bushing will hold the nail. DO NOT PUSH THE NAIL. Pushing the nail too deep
into the tip can result in activating the tool.
• Only connect air to an unloaded tool to avoid accidental discharge and always keep tool
pointed in a safe direction.
• Never point tool at yourself or others in the work area. Always keep tool pointed in a safe
direction at all times.
• Use only clean, dry, regulated air, not to exceed 110 psi.
• Never use oxygen or other bottled gasses-explosion may occur.
• Always DISCONNECT THE AIR SUPPLY before making any adjustments, repairing, clearing jams or
when the nailer is not in use. Do not use on scaffolding or ladders. Disconnect Nailer from air supply
when transporting between installation areas.
• Never attach the female end of a quick disconnect to the Nailer. This will trap air inside the Nailer and
permit it to be discharged. Only the unrestricted male connection should be attached to the Nailer.
• Nailer requires an air source that can continuously delivers 70 to 110 psi at 3-1/2 cubic feet of air
per minute for operation. Normal air pressure should not exceed 110 psi or damage to the Nailer and
seals may occur. Excessive air pressure can cause the Nailer to
explode.
• Keep hands and body parts away from area being fastened.
WARNING
Fasteners can deflect and turn as they are being driven into the
work piece, and penetrate fingers, hands, and other body parts
that may be in the fastening area.
• Do not fire into hard or hazardous materials. Do not attempt to
discharge tool into hard or brittle material.
• Do not modify the tool. Modifications can cause tool to be
unsafe and can cause the tool to operate improperly.
• Keep tool out of reach of children.

AIR SUPPLY & MAINTENANCE
Your PowerPalm is fully assembled when you receive it. Before using it, attach the air line
and desired air system accessories such as air filters and/or oilers. Be sure the air hose is
depressurized when installing or removing adapters to the air line.
Please refer to the Parts List for part names and item numbers.
CONNECTING THE TOOL TO AN AIR SUPPLY
1. Place two drops of oil in the AIR PLUG if needed. If you are using an automatic in-line
oiler, check and add oil if necessary.
2. Turn the compressor on and set the regulator to an operating pressure
between 70-110 psi
3. Connect the tool to the air supply (see Setup for air supply connection recommendations).
REGULAR MAINTENANCE
1. Frequent, but not excessive, lubrication is required for best performance. Oil added through
the airline connection will lubricate internal parts. An automatic air-line oiler is recommended
but oil may be added manually before every operation or after about 1 hour of continuous use.
Only a few drops of oil at a time are necessary. Too much oil will collect inside the tool and
be blown out during the exhaust cycle. ONLY USE PNEUMATIC TOOL OIL. Do not use
detergent oil or additives, as these lubricants will cause accelerated wear to the seal in the tool.
2. Dirt and water in the air supply are major causes of pneumatic tool wear. Use a filter/oiler
for better performance and longer life. The filter must have adequate flow capacity for the
specific application. Consult the filter/oiler manufacturer’s instructions for proper maintenance
of your filter.
3. Keep tools clean for better and safer performance. Use nonflammable cleaning solutions
only if necessary. CAUTION: Soaking the tool may damage O-ring and other tool parts.
5
OPERATING THE TOOL
Your PowerPalm™ Nailer is an Automatic Hammer.
It has no trigger—it starts driving when the piston rod
assembly presses against the fastener’s head.
It will automatically stop when the fastener’s head no
longer touches this piston rod.
The operator should apply a slight amount of pressure
to activate the tool. Do not force the tool.
Powernail Palm Nailer Tool-Tips
1) Lightly place one nail in the guide bushing
2) Do not push harder than necessary to activate nailer
3) Nailer will drive & set nail with minimal pressure
4) For exotic & dense wood, 1-1/2” length nails work best
5) Sub-floor must be solid for nail to drive & set correctly.
Use the PowerPalm nailer to nail down
your starter rows. Be sure to leave the
recommended expansion space between
the wall and your starter rows. Use the
PowerPalm for 2-3 rows or until you are
far enough from the wall to start using a
Powernailer®.

POWERPALM USE
1. Connect the tool to the air supply. Make sure the air pressure is in correct range for the
tool (70-110 psi).
2. Point tool in a safe direction, lightly place one nail in the guide bushing tip. A magnet
in the bushing will hold the nail. DO NOT PUSH THE NAIL. Pushing the nail too deep
into the tip can result in activating the tool.
3. Gently push the PowerPalm nailer against the fastener’s head. The tool will
automatically start driving and stop when the fastener is countersunk. Please note the
PowerPalm nailer will countersink the fastener’s head into the nail pocket.
4. Lift the tool off the work surface immediately after the fastener has been driven in.
5. Upon completion of your job, disconnect the PowerPalm from the air supply.
Test the driving depth in a sample piece of wood before using. If the fastener is being
driven too far or not far enough, adjust the regulator to provide less air pressure or more
air pressure.
LEAKING AIR: The PowerPalm nailer may release air pressure if accidentally dropped.
The internal cycling mechanism may assume a mid-cycle position allowing air to pass
through without energizing the oscillating action. The unit will remain inoperative when
this occurs. To stop the escaping air, tap the cap side of the unit into the palm of your
hand with enough impact to reset the internal piston. The escaping air should immediately
stop and your unit is ready for use.
Use the PowerPalm nailer on the
last couple of finishing rows, starter
rows, end-strips or transitions.
