CONNECTING TO A POWER SOURCE
Plug the dust collector into a proper receptacle. Your power tools should be connected to a dedicated electrical circuit of not less than #14 wire and should be
protected with a 15 amp time lag fuse. If an extension cord is needed, use only
3-wire cords with 3-prong grounded-type plugs and 3-pole receptacles.
Grounding: This tool must be grounded to protect the operator from electrical shock. The
supplied motor recommended for your dust collector is wired for 110 Volt, single phase, and
has a 3-conductor cord and 3-prong grounded plug to fit a grounded-type receptacle,
. Do not remove the 3rd prong (grounding pin) from the plug to make it fit into an old
2-hole wall socket. If an adapter plug is used, , it must be attached to the metal screw of the receptacle.
Note: Use of an adaptor plug is illegal in some areas. Check your local codes.
Before connecting the motor to the power line, make sure that the switch is in the OFF position and that the
electrical current is of the same type as that stamped on the motor nameplate. All electrical connections
should have proper contact. Running on low voltage will damage the motor.
To avoid risk of shock or fire, do not operate with a damaged power cord or plug.
Replace damaged cord or plug immediately.
