1). WORK AREA SAFETY
• Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas
invite accidents. Rags, cloths, cord, string and similar items
should never be left around the work area
• Do not operate power tools in explosive environments, such
as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases, or dust. Power
tools create sparks, which may ignite the dust or fumes.
• Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power
tool. Distractions can cause the operator to lose control.
2). ELECTRICAL SAFETY
• Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the
plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with grounded
power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will
reduce risk of electric shock.
• Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces such as pipes,
radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is 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 cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling
or unplugging the power tool. Keep cord away from heat,
oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Replace damaged cords
immediately. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of
electric shock.
• When operating a power tool outdoors,use an extension cord
suitanbe for outdoor use.Use of a cord suitable for outdoor
reduces the risk of electric shock.
Double insulated for additional protection.
For safe operation read instruction manual.
Conforms to relevant standards
for electromagnetic compatibility.

• To reduce the risk of electric shock, the manufacturer recommends
the use of a residual current of 30mA or less at all times.
3). 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
you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or
medication. A moment of inattention while operating power
tools may result in serious personal injury.
• Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye
protection. Protective equipment such as dust mask, non-skid
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection will reduce
personal injures.
• Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the “off”
position before connecting to power source and/or battery
pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying power tools with
your finger on the switch or energising power tools that have
the switch on invites accidents.
• Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power
tool on. A wrench or key 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. This enables better control of the power tool in
unexpected situations.
• Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep
your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose
clothes, jewellery or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
• If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction
and collection facilities , ensure these are connected and
properly used. Use of dust collection can reduce dust-related
hazards.
4). POWER TOOL USE AND CARE
• Do not force the power tools. Use the correct power tool for
your application. The correct power tool will do the job better
and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
• Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it “on”
and “off”. Any power tool that cannot be controlled with the
switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
• Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the battery
pack from the power tool before making any adjustments,
changing accessories, or storing power tools. Such preventive
safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool
accidentally.
• Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do
not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these
instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are
dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
• Maintain power tools with care. Check for misalignment or
binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any other
condition that may affect the power tool’s operation. If
damaged, have the power tool repaired before use. Many
accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
• Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained
cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind
and are easier to control.
• Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in
accordance with these instructions, taking into account the
working conditions and the work to be performed. Use of the
power tool for operations different from those intended could
result in a hazardous situation.
5). Servicing
• Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person
using only identical replacement parts. This will ensure that
the safety of the power tools is maintained.

paint sprayer and the spray gun (3).
Note: This hose has identical fittings on both ends so can be
connected using either end.
2. Insert one end of the hose (15) into
the paint sprayer outlet port (17)
by aligning the 2 pins on the hose
with the 2 notches in the inlet port
and rotate approx 45 degrees in an
anticlockwise direction until secure.
(refer Fig B)
3. Repeat this step connecting the other end of the hose Fig. B
(15) to the spray gun hose inlet port (16).
Preparation of Spray Material
Most paints will require dilution before using with your Paint
Sprayer. Refer to the guidelines in the viscosity table below for
the recommended required dilution. The correct dilution can be
achieved by using the viscosity test cup supplied with your paint
sprayer. (Note: Viscosity = consistency of the paint).
Measuring the Viscosity
To measure the viscosity of the spray material follow these
instructions (refer Fig C):
1. Dip the viscosity test cup completely into the spray material to
be used.
2. Hold the test cup up and measure the time (in seconds) until
the liquid empties out of the viscosity cup.
3. Compare the measured “runout time” with the Viscosity Table
to establish the required viscosity
Using the carry strap
The carry strap is used to assist with mobility when using the
paint sprayer. It allows you to carry the paint sprayer hands free
by your side during use.
1. The carry strap needs to be attached to the Paint sprayer by
clipping each end of the strap onto the small bar in the carry
strap recess (21) on both sides of the sprayer.
2. Put the carry strap (attached to the sprayer) over your head
and place the carry strap on one shoulder and placed across
the body so that the sprayer is sitting against your opposite
hip. Adjust the length of the carry strap as required for the
paint sprayer to sit comfortably for use.
3. To remove the carry strap, simply detach both clips on the carry
strap from the bar in the carry strap recesses (21) on both sides.

Ensure you check and follow the
below recommended steps before
using your Paint Sprayer
1. Before connecting your paint
sprayer to the mains supply,
ensure that the supply voltage is
identical with the value given on
the rating label (on the side of
the Paint sprayer).
Note: To reduce the risk of electric shock, the manufacturer
recommends the use of a residual current of 30mA or less at all times.
2. Dilute the spray material according to the viscosity table.
3. Place the paint pot on a sheet of paper and fill it with the
prepared spray material.
NOTE: It is strongly recommended
to fill the paint pot through a fine
strainer/gauze to filter the paint.
WARNING: Do not operate the spray
gun without spray material in the
paint pot.
4. Carefully secure the filled paint
pot to the lid on the spray gun by
turning it in an anticlockwise direction until secure.
NOTE: Ensure you undertake a test spray with the unit before

Operation
Spray Technique
Before using your paint sprayer, read the following tips for
spraying techniques:
• Cover areas that are not to be sprayed.
When working keep in mind that wind, for example, may
transport paint mist over great distances and cause damage.
• Test the spray gun on cardboard or a similar surface to find the
correct setting before you start spraying your work piece.
• When spraying, hold the spray gun in a horizontal position.
Always hold the spray gun at an even distance of approx.
5-15cm from the object to be sprayed. (ref Fig F)
• The spray movement should come from the arm, not just from
the wrist. This ensures that a uniform distance is maintained
between the spray
gun and the spray
surface during the
spray operation.
• To achieve optimal
spray results, spray
back and forth over
Fig. F
Fig. G
the surface
(refer Fig G).
