LUBRICATION OF COMPRESSOR

Your pump comes factory filled with oil and already has the oil breather fitted. Before use check the oil level to ensure the level is to the top of the red dot on the sight glass; refer to pages 9 and 12 for complete details and images. Failure to do this may result in damage to the air compressor and / or injury to the user.

WORK AREA

Work areas and benches should be kept tidy. Cluttered benches and work areas can cause accidents. Floors should be kept clean and free from rubbish. Special care should be taken when the floor is slippery due to sawdust or wax. Always leave sufficient distance, at least 5 metres between the air compressor and the work area, especially when using tools designed for sanding or spraying liquids.

As this compressor uses a petrol Engine, only run the air compressor outdoors or in a well ventilated area. If needed use a longer air hose to reach your work area.

LUBRICATION OF ENGINE

Your engine comes with NO oil in the sump. You will need to add engine oil, refer to pages 9 and 13 for complete details and images. Failure to do this may result in damage to the engine, air compressor and / or injury to the user.

ASSEMBLY

This compressor MUST be fully assembled by you prior to use. Failure to do so will result in the warranty being VOID.

Failure to fully assemble this compressor may also result in personal injury.

WORK/OPERATING ENVIRONMENT

Do not expose your air compressor to rain or use in damp or wet conditions. Keep the work area well lit. Always ensure your compressor is level and stable. Using your compressor on uneven or unstable ground may cause a lack of lubrication and the pump to seize, this damage will not be covered under warranty.

ALWAYS use your petrol air compressor outdoors or in an open well ventilated area. Do not expose your air compressor to rain. Do not expose your air compressor to direct sunlight. Keep the work area well lit.

SAFETY

Before attempting to operate this air compressor the following basic safety precautions should be taken to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and personal injury.

It is important to read the instruction manual and to understand applications, limitations and potential hazards associated with the air compressor. This air compressor is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.

BEWARE OF CHILDREN AND PETS

Children and pets should be kept out of the work area.

Children should not be allowed to touch or operate the air compressor, tools or extension cords. This air compressor is not designed for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision. The air compressor and tools should be kept out of reach of children, preferably stored or locked in a secure cabinet or room when not in use.

GUARD AGAINST ELECTRIC SHOCK

Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces (e.g. pipes and refrigerators).

DO NOT FORCE AIR COMPRESSORS

The air compressor will do a better, safer job and give you much better service if it’s used at the duty cycle for which it was designed. The duty cycle will only take effect after the initial (1st ) tank fill for the day. This air compressors duty cycle is 100%. Duty cycle is the proportion of time during which the air compressor is operating compared with not operating. As this air compressor is a petrol powered compressor the pump is always pumping and the Engine always running, however it is recommended that the air tool is not used while the Engine is at high RPM filling the air tank, this is to ensure that you have a consistent air flow to your air tool.

FUEL

Fuel used in this air compressor is poisonous. Always wear approved breathing protection when decanting fuel. If you get any fuel on your skin or clothes wash the affected area immediately with soap and water and change your clothes. If you get fuel in your eyes wash immediately with clean water and seek medical attention.

If any fuel is swallowed DO NOT induce vomiting, seek immediate medical attention

To check the operation of the safety valve the air tank will need to be full. Gently pull the ring upwards. This should release air under pressure. Release the ring and this should stop the air out flow once the tank pressure has dropped.

If the safety valve does NOT work in this manner, STOP the air compressor immediately and have the air compressor checked / serviced by an authorised service centre.

Filter Regulator, Pic. 20

NOTE: When draining the filter regulator ensure the air compressor is turned off and the outlet pressure has been reduced to 0PSI/0Bar.

This filter regulator is both an air pressure regulator and a moisture trap.

To adjust the outlet air pressure with this filter regulator.

To reduce the outlet pressure:

1. Lift up the regulator cap.

2. To reduce the outlet pressure wind the regulator cap anti-clockwise till the outlet pressure gauge is showing your required pressure.

3. Once required pressure is set push the regulator cap down to ensure it does not change with vibration

To increase the outlet pressure:

1. Lift up the regulator cap.

2. To increase the outlet pressure wind the regulator cap clockwise till the outlet pressure gauge is showing your required pressure.

3. Once required pressure is set push the regulator cap down to ensure it does not change with vibration.

To drain the filter regulator bowl:

1. Turn your air compressor off.

2. Reduce the outlet pressure to 0PSI/0Bar by winding the regulator cap anti-clockwise till the outlet pressure gauge is showing 0PSI/0Bar.

BELT TENSION

Correct belt tension is paramount to a safe and reliable air compressor. Too tight a belt can cause damage to bearings and premature motor failure. These failures will not be covered by warranty. Too loose a belt can cause poor performance and excess heat due to slippage which can also lead to premature component failure. This will not be covered by warranty. To check the belt tension, gently push down midway between the two pulleys the belt should only move between 10mm – 15mm, Pic. 15. If the belt moves more that this amount then you will need to tighten the belt.

To adjust the belt tension, follow these simple steps;

1. Loosen the motor bolts, Pic. 24.

2. Slide the motor forward or backward to correct position.

3. Tighten the motor bolts.

4. Check belt tension and repeat if needed.

5. If uncertain about attempting the above steps please consult an authorised service agent.

Belt Straightness, Pic. 25

Belt straightness is paramount to a safe and reliable air compressor. The belt should always run in a straight line between the two (2) pulleys. If the belt is on an angle this could cause excessive strain and wear on components.

This will not be covered by warranty. The belt should run parallel to the two pulleys. If not, adjust. To adjust the belt straightness, follow these simple steps;

1. Loosen the pump bolts, Pic. 25.

2. Slide the pump to the appropriate position.

3. Tighten the pump bolts.

4. Check belt straightness and repeat if needed.

5. Check belt tension and correct if necessary.

Belt Replacement, Pic. 26

The belt will need replacing if it has been damaged, worn, or it has reached 200 hours of use. To replace the belt follow these steps;

1. Undo and remove the belt guard twist locks, see Pic. 26.

To remove twist locks use pliers to rotate the twist locks by 90° then remove.

2. Remove the front of the belt guard.

3. Loosen the motor bolts Pic. 15.

4. Remove the belt.

5. Clean both pulleys with a dry soft cloth. DO NOT USE any lubricants or solvents as this can damage the new belt by causing slippage.

6. Fit new belt.

7. Set correct belt tension

8. Check the belt straightness and tension, adjust if required.

9. Replace the front of the belt guard.

10. Replace then tighten the belt guard twist locks.
