ASSEMBLY 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. 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 ENVIRONMENT Do not expose your air compressor to rain or use in damp or wet conditions. 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. 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 75%. Duty cycle is the proportion of time during which the air compressor is operating compared with not operating. For example a 75% duty cycle could mean after 45 seconds of operation, motor pumping, the air compressor must be left for 15 seconds resting, motor not pumping. When the motor is pumping the attached air tool can not be used. Only use the attached air tool while the compressor is not pumping. Stop using the attached tool as soon as the air compressor starts pumping. 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. USE THE RIGHT TOOL Select the right tool for the job.
