GENERAL SAFETY RULES
WORK AREA
Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered benches and dark areas
invite accidents.
Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the
presence of flammable liquids, gases, or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while operating a power
tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control. Protect others in the work
area from debris such as chips and sparks. Provide barriers or shields as
needed.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
Grounded tools must be plugged into an outlet properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all codes and ordinances. Never remove
the grounding prong or modify the plug in any way. do not use any
adapter plugs. Check with a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to
whether the outlet is properly grounded. If the tools should electrically
malfunction or break down, grounding provides a low resistance path to carry
electricity away from the user.
Double insulated tools are equipped with a polarized plug (one blade is
wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way.
If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does
not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install a polarized outlet. do not
change the plug in any way. Double insulation
eliminates the need for
the three wire grounded power cord and grounded power supply system.
Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators,
ranges, and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your
body is grounded.
Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a
power tool will increase the risk of electric shock.
Do not abuse the Power Cord. Never use the Power Cord to carry the
tools or pull the Plug from an outlet. keep the Power Cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges, or moving parts. Replace damaged Power Cords
immediately. Damaged Power Cords increase the risk of electric shock.
When operating a power tool outside, use an outdoor extension cord
marked “W-A” or “W”. These extension cords are rated for outdoor use, and
reduce the risk of electric shock.
PERSONAL SAFETY
Stay alert. watch what you are doing, and use common sense when
operating a power tool. do not use a power tool while tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while
operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
Dress properly. do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long hair.
Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose
clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
9
GENERAL SAFETY RULES
Avoid accidental starting. be sure the Power Switch is off before
plugging in. Carrying power tools with your finger on the Power Switch, or
plugging in power tools with the Power Switch on, invites accidents.
Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning the power tool on. A
wrench or a key that is left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may
result in personal injury.
Do not overreach. keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper
footing and balance enables better control of the power tool in unexpected
situations.
Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask, nonskid
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection must be used for appropriate
conditions. Always wear ANSI-approved safety goggles and a dust
mask/respirator when using or performing maintenance on this tool.
TOOL USE AND CARE
Use clamps (not included) or other practical ways to secure and support
the work piece to a stable platform. Holding the work by hand or against
your body is unstable and may lead to loss of control.
Do not force the tool. use the correct tool for your application. The
correct tool will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
Do not force the tool and do not use the tool for a purpose for which it is not
intended.
Do not use the power tool if the Power Switch does not turn it on or off.
Any tool that cannot be controlled with the Power Switch is dangerous and
must be replaced.
Disconnect the Power Cord Plug from the power source before making
any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing the tool. Such
preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
Store idle tools out of reach of children and other untrained persons.
Tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users. Keep children away
from.
Maintain tools with care. Properly maintained tools are less likely to bind and
are easier to control. Do not use a damaged tool. Tag damaged tools “Do not
use” until repaired.
Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts,
and any other condition that may affect the tool’s operation. If damaged,
have the tool serviced before using. Many accidents are caused by poorly
maintained tools.
Use only accessories that are recommended by the manufacturer for
your model. Accessories that may be suitable for one tool may become
hazardous when used on another tool.

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
Become familiar with these terms before operating the unit.
CFM: Cubic feet per minute.
SCFM: Standard cubic feet per minute; a unit of measure of air delivery.
PSI: Pounds per square inch; a unit of measure of pressure.
Code Certification: Products that bear one or more of the following marks:
UL, CUL, ETL, CETL, have been evaluated by OSHA certified independent
safety laboratories and meet the applicable Underwriters Laboratories
Standards for Safety.
Cut-In Pressure: While the motor is off, air tank pressure drops as you
continue to use your accessory. When the tank pressure drops to a certain low
level the motor will restart automatically. The low pressure at which the motor
automatically restarts is called "cut-in" pressure.
Cut-Out Pressure: When an air compressor is turned on and begins to run,
air pressure in the air tank begins to build. It builds to a certain high pressure
before the motor automatically shuts off - protecting your air tank from
pressure higher than its capacity. The high pressure at which the motor shuts
off is called "cut-out" pressure.
Branch Circuit: Circuit carrying electricity from electrical panel to outlet.
DUTY CYCLE
Air compressors should be operated on not more than a 50% duty cycle. This
means an air compressor that pumps air more than 50% of one hour is
considered misuse, because the air compressor is undersized for the required air
demand. Maximum compressor pumping time per hour is 30 minutes.

INSTALLATION
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
DANGER! Risk of Electric Shock. In the event of a short circuit, grounding reduces
the risk of shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current. This air
compressor must be properly grounded.
The portable air compressor is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with an
appropriate grounding plug (see following illustrations). The plug must be used with
an outlet that has been installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
1. The cord set and plug with this unit contains a grounding pin. This plug MUST be
used with a grounded outlet.
IMPORTANT: The outlet being used must be installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances.
2. Make sure the outlet being used has the same configuration as the grounded plug.
DO NOT USE AN ADAPTER. (See illustration)
3. If these grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if in doubt as to
whether the compressor is properly grounded, have the installation checked by a
qualified electrician.
Risk of Electric Shock. IMPROPER GROUNDING CAN RESULT IN ELECTRICAL
SHOCK. Do not modify the plug provided. If it does not fit the available outlet,
a correct outlet should be installed by a qualified electrician. Repairs to the cord
set or plug MUST be made by a qualified electrician.

INSTALLATION
EXTENSION CORDS
Grounded tools require a three wire extension cord. Double Insulated tools
can use either a two or three wire extension cord.
As the distance from the supply outlet increases, you must use a heavier
gauge extension cord. Using extension cords with inadequately sized wire
causes a serious drop in voltage, resulting in loss of power and possible tool
damage. (See Table A.)
The smaller the gauge number of the wire, the greater the capacity of the cord.
For example, a 14 gauge cord can carry a higher current than a 16 gauge cord.
When using more than one extension cord to make up the total length, make
sure each cord contains at least the minimum wire size required. (See Table
A.)
If you are using one extension cord for more than one tool, add the nameplate
amperes and use the sum to determine the required minimum cord size.
If you are using an extension cord outdoors, make sure it is marked with the
suffix “W-A” (“W” in Canada) to indicate it is acceptable for outdoor use.
Make sure your extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition. Always replace a damaged extension cord or have it repaired by a
qualified electrician before using it.
Protect your extension cords from sharp objects, excessive heat, and damp or
wet areas.

3. Adjust regulator pressure to MAXIMUM position. In maximum output pressure
position 135psi the tire will fill up quicker and accurately however it is extremely
important to monitor the air flow using the tire gauge as it is in process of being
filled to ensure of not overfilling tire. NOTE: If maximum pressure is not used for
output of the compressor to tire than the tire may not fill as there may be a
pressure lock between the tire and the hose which is normal. Due to this always
use maximum pressure from compressor and continue to monitor pressure with
gauge.
4. Place tire chuck on tire valve stem and press firmly into place to prevent air
from leaking out of tire.
5. Remove tire chuck from valve stem and check pressure using a tire gauge.
This process needs to be followed throughout the process of filling each tire to
ensure of accuracy and to prevent overfilling..
