SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
in use or when you leave the work area. The tool
should never be left unattended because people who
are not familiar with the tool might handle it and
injure themselves or others.
SAFETY FIRST
These safety instructions provide information necessary
for safe operation of Paslode® tools. DO NOT ATTEMPT
TO OPERATE THE TOOL UNTIL YOU READ AND
UNDERSTAND ALL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND
MANUAL INSTRUCTIONS.
CARRY THE TOOL ONLY BY THE HANDLE
Always carry the tool by the handle only. Never carry
the tool by the air hose or with the trigger depressed
since you could drive a fastener unintentionally and
injure yourself or someone else.
WEAR EYE AND HEARING PROTECTION
Always wear hearing and eye protection devices, including side shields, when operating or working in the
vicinity of a tool.
DO NOT WEAKEN THE TOOL HOUSING
The tool housing is a pressure vessel and should never
be weakened by having your company’s name, area
of work or anything else stamped or engraved into its
surface.
THE TOOL MUST BE USED ONLY FOR THE PURPOSE FOR WHICH IT WAS DESIGNED
Do not throw the tool on the floor, strike the housing in
any way or use the tool as a hammer to knock
material into place.
DISCONNECT THE TOOL WHEN PERFORMING
REPAIRS AND CLEARING JAMS
Never attempt to clear a jam or repair a tool unless you
have disconnected the tool from the air line and
removed all remaining fasteners from the tool.
NEVER ENGAGE IN HORSEPLAY WITH THE TOOL
The tool is not a toy so do not use it like one. Never
engage in horseplay with the tool or point it at yourself
or any other person, even if you think it is not loaded.
ALWAYS USE THE PROPER FITTING FOR THE
TOOL
Only MALE pneumatic type air connectors should be
fitted to the tool, so that high pressure air in the tool is
vented to atmosphere as soon as the air line is
disconnected.
NEVER install FEMALE quick disconnect couplings on
the tool. Female couplings will trap high pressure air
in the tool when the air line is disconnected, leaving
the tool charged and able to drive at least one fastener.
NEVER ASSUME THE TOOL IS EMPTY
Check the magazine for fasteners that may be left in the
tool. Even if you think the tool is empty or disconnected,
never point it at anyone or yourself. Unseen fasteners
could fire from the tool.
NEVER CLAMP THE TRIGGER IN A LOCKED OR
OPERATING POSITION
The trigger of the tool must never be tampered with,
disabled or clamped in a locked or operating position
since this will cause the tool to drive a fastener any time
the work contacting element depressed.
DO NOT EXCEED THE MAXIMUM RECOMMENDED
AIR PRESSURE
Operate the tool only at the recommended air pressure. Do not exceed the maximum air pressure marked
on the tool. Be sure the air pressure gauge is
operating properly and check it at least twice a day.
DO NOT LOAD FASTENERS WITH THE AIR LINE
CONNECTED, OR WITH THE TOOL TRIGGER OR
WORK CONTACTING ELEMENT DEPRESSED
When loading fasteners into the tool be sure you
disconnect the air line and that you do not depress the
trigger or work contacting element.
Never use any bottled air or gases such as oxygen to
operate the tool since they could cause the tool to
OPERATE THE TOOL ONLY ON A WORKPIECE
The tool should be operated only when it is in contact
with the workpiece. Even then you should be careful
when fastening thin material or working near the edges
and corners of the workpiece since the fasteners may
drive through or away from the workpiece.
explode.
KEEP THE TOOL CLEAN AND LUBRICATED
Clean the tool at least daily and lubricate as required.
Never operate a dirty or malfunctioning tool.
USE ONLY PASLODE RECOMMENDED PARTS AND
FASTENERS
Use only parts and fasteners specifically designed and
recommended by Paslode for use in the tool and for
work to be done. Using unauthorized parts and
fasteners or modifying the tool in any way creates
dangerous situations. Replace all missing warning
labels---refer to tool schematic for correct placement
and part number.
DO NOT DISABLE OR REMOVE THE WORK CONTACTING ELEMENT
This tool is equipped with a safety mechanism, called a
work contacting element, to help prevent
accidental firing. Never tamper with, disable or remove
the work contacting element. Do not use the tool unless
the work contacting element is working properly. The
tool could fire unexpectedly.
DISCONNECT THE TOOL WHEN NOT IN USE
Always disconnect the tool from the air line when it is not
WARNING
Failure to follow any of the above instructions could result in severe personal
injury to tool user and bystanders or cause damage to tool and property.

AIR SYSTEMS
For air-powered tools to work their best, the air
supply system must be properly installed and
maintained regularly. A drawing in this section
shows a properly installed air supply system.
Handy checklists for installing and maintaining
air supply systems follow.
Indoor Air System Installation
-Be certain that:
• All pipes supplying air have a large enough
inside diameter to ensure adequate air supply.
• The main supply pipe slopes down, away from
the compressor (1/16 inch per foot).
• Air hoses are not longer than 150 feet.
• The air system is lubricated regularly.
• A regular maintenance program is followed.
Filter/Regulator/Lubricator Units
Filter/regulator/lubricator units that can supply
enough air and protection for Paslode tools
must meet the following specifications:
• Minimum 3/8 inch NPT port
size .
• Air storage is provided along lengthy air lines.
• 50 micron or fine filters.
• Pipe line branch outlets are at the top of the
• Regulated pressure from zero to 120 psi.

• Cutoff valves are provided at each branch pipe
• Lubricators designed for low or changing
airflow.
line throughout the system.
• Water legs extend from the bottom of each branch
line.
• A refrigerant-type dryer is installed on the system.
• Air hoses are kept as short as practical.
• A regular maintenance program is followed.
Outdoor Air System Installation
-Be certain that:
• A moisture trap and a filter/regulator/lubricator are
installed at the compressor.
• Air hoses and fittings are large enough so that air
flow is not restricted. Minimum hose size is 3/8
inch ID with 1/2 inch ID hose used for any
application over 25 feet.

AIR SYSTEMS - Continued
Calculating Compressor Size
Use the air consumption chart in the Tool
Schematic for each tool when calculating the
operating requirements for the tools. Paslode
tools are designed to operate efficiently
between 80 and 120 psi and should never be
operated at pressure greater than 120 psi.
The air consumption chart will help you find the
correct compressor size for your application
that will quickly replenish tool air pressure.
To use the chart you will need to know how
many tools will be used and approximately
how many fasteners will be driven each minute
by each tool onthe line. Using the equation:
Calculated Required Piping
For example, given a 20 hp electric compressor
supplying approximately 80 cfm of air at 120 psi
and a main supply pipe length of 350 feet, we see
by the table the minimum main pipe inside diameter required for this
application is 1-1/4 inch.
Number of tools X average fasteners/minute/
tool X 1.2 (safety factor) X air consumption
(scfm) @ pressure* (psi) = scfm required.
We can use the following example:
10 tools X 30 fasteners/minute/tool X 1.2 X
0.051scfm* (@100psi) = 18.36 scfm.
*This number is found in the Air Consumption
Chart
Pneumatic System Maintenance
- Be certain that:
• Pneumatic fittings are tight and do not leak.
In this example, using the air consumption
• Water legs, filters and air lines are drained daily,

(Paslode Part No. 219026)
• The filter element is cleaned every six months.
• Only regulated air is being used and that each
regulator is operating properly.

TOOL INSTALLATION
TOOL OPERATION
Depth of Drive Adjustment
(On tools equipped with this feature)
Your Paslode tool comes ready for immediate use
and can be installed by following these steps:
1. SAFETY - All tool operators and their immediate
supervisors must become familiar with the operator
safety instructions before operating the tool. The
instructions are on page 2 of this manual.
The depth of drive adjustment is made by
adjusting the work contacting element. The
lock nut is loosened to allow the element to be
moved up or down. You will need a 3/8 inch
open end or 5/32 inch hex socket wrench to
make this adjustment.
2. Included wuth each tool are one copy of this
Safety and Maintenance manual and one copy of
the Tool Schematic. Keep these publications for
future reference. An ownership registration card is
also included. This card must be completed and
returned to Paslode immediately to register your
ownership.
If the tool is overdriving (the fastener head or
crown is driven below the work surface), the
work contacting element should be moved
downward. If the fasteners stand up (the head
or crown is not flush with the surface), the work
contacting element should be moved up.
3. The plastic cap in the air inlet of the tool must be
removed before the male fitting is installed. The
fitting must be a male pneumatic type that discharges the air from the tool when the air line is
disconnected.
Adjust the work contacting element until the
fastener head or crown depth meets job requirements.
4. Install a filter/regulator/lubricator unit, with a
gauge as close as practical to the tool, preferably
within ten feet. Refer to the Air Systems section of
this manual for air hose requirements and lengths.
In general, no other special installation is required.
6. If this tool does not work when it is first connected, do not try to make repairs. Call your
Paslode representative immediately.

■ Open the drain on the air compressor tank to drain any
moisture at least daily in extremely cold or humid weather.
A few ounces of anti-freeze in the tank will keep the air
free of frost.
MAINTENANCE
Paslode® tools are built for ease of maintenance. A few
simple details will assure trouble-free operation and long
tool life. Anyone who uses or maintains the tool must read
the safety and maintenance instructions. Study the schematic drawing before starting any repairs on the tool.
Testing the Tool After Servicing
After replacing any part or parts, it is important to check
the tool for proper operation. This ensures that the tool
was put together correctly, is safe to use, and will perform
the job properly.
Air-operated tools must be inspected periodically, and worn
or broken parts must be replaced to keep the tool operating
safely and efficiently. Also the items on the maintenance
chart must be checked often.
■ Ensure that all hardware is tight.
■ Ensure that the work contacting element is installed
correctly in relation to the trigger, and that both parts
move freely.
Cold Weather Care
When temperatures are below freezing, tools should be
kept warm by any convenient, safe method. If this is not
possible, the following procedure should be used to warm
up the tools.
■ Ensure that the magazine is properly attached.
■ Ensure that the required safety information on the tool
is legible.
■ Reduce the regulated air pressure to 30 psi.
■ Use only Paslode approved fasteners in the tool, and
ensure that they are correct for the application.
■ Remove all fasteners from the tool.
■ Ensure that a male air fitting is securely connected to
the tool.
■ Collect an air line and blank fire the tool. The reduced
air pressure will be enough to free-fire the tool. Slow speed
operation tends to warm up the moving parts. Slowing up
the piston helps the bumper and the O-rings to become
springy.
■ Test the tool by driving fasteners into a workpiece
identical to the tool's application.
■ Check the tool for air leaks during testing and for the
proper sequence of operation.
■ Ensure that all fasteners are driven to the same depth
and that the crown of the fastener is flush with the
workpiece.
■ Once the tool is warmed up, readjust the regulator to
the proper working pressure and reload the tool.
Tool Lubrication
■ Tool operators working outdoors or in unheated areas in
extremely cold temperatures should also:
It is most important that the tool be properly lubricated by
keeping the air line lubricator filled and correctly adjusted.
Without proper lubrication the tool will not work properly
and parts will wear prematurely.
■ Use Paslode pneumatic oil with antifreeze in the
lubricator, Part No. 219090 (8oz.)
Use the proper lubricant in the air line lubricator. The
lubricator should be of low air flow or changing air flow
type, and should be kept filled to the correct level. Use
only Paslode recommended lubricants. Substitutes may
harm the rubber compounds in the tools O-rings and other
rubber parts. Paslode Part No. 219026 is a pneumatic
lubricating oil specially made for pneumatic applications.
■ Once a week, depending on the amount of tool use,
take the tool apart and wash away any sludge with
degreaser cleaner (Paslode Part No. 219086) to keep the
tool operating efficiently.
If a filter/regulator/lubricator is not installed on the air
system, air operated tools should be lubricated at least
once a day with 6 to 20 drops of oil, depending on the
work environment, directly through the male fitting in the
tool housing.
Cleaning the air-operated tools with solvents removes the
thin coating of grease applied to the cylinder wall and
O-rings at the factory. To replace this coating of grease,
use Chemplex grease (Paslode Part No. 403734).
