breathing device connected to the inflator.
Inflate items only to their manufacturer's
recommendations. Exceeding the pressure rating could
cause them to explode resulting in personal injury.
Do not leave the inflator running unattended. It could
burst tyres or other items.
Since the vibrations produced by the inflator may cause
it to "walk", do not operate on a high shelf or other
surface. Operate at ground or bench level only.
Do not modify or attempt to repair. Never drill into, weld,
or make any modifications to the inflator or its
Do not operate the inflator when the engine is running.

should be regularly checked with a certified gauge.
Before use, check the power supply cord for signs of
damage, ageing and wear.
Do not use the appliance if the power supply cord or
mains plug is damaged or defective (where applicable).
Electrical safety
This tool/appliance is double insulated; therefore no
earth wire is required. Always check that the power
supply corresponds to the voltage on the rating
Electrical safety can be further improved by using a high
sensitivity (30mA / 30mS) Residual Current Device (RCD).

Residual risks
Additional residual risks may arise when using the tool which
may not be included in the enclosed safety warnings. These
risks can arise from misuse, prolonged use etc.
Even with the application of the relevant safety regulations
and the implementation of safety devices, certain residual
risks cannot be avoided. These include:
Injuries caused by touching any rotating/moving parts.
Injuries caused when changing any parts, blades or
Injuries caused by prolonged use of a tool. When using
any tool for prolonged periods make sure you take
regular breaks.
Impairment of hearing.
Health hazards caused by breathing dust developed
when using your tool (example:- working with wood,
especially oak, beech and MDF).
Air hose and cord storage
The air hose (3) and the ac cord (5) are stored in the storage
compartment (1) on top of the Inflator (fig. A). The holes in
both sides of the cover (1) allow for the hose and cord to exit
from the compartment so that the compartment cover can be
closed while the Inflator is in use. The dc cord (4) is stored in
the storage compartment (9) (fig. D) at the rear of the inflator.
Fitting the accessories (fig. B & D)
Your inflator is supplied with the standard tapered nozzles
and the needle inflator nozzle (6), these are located on the
base of the unit (fig. D).
To use the universal valve adaptor, make sure that the
lever is in the up position.
Place the valve adapter over the stem of the inflation
needle or tapered nozzle (fig. B).
Press the lever on the valve adapter down to lock it in
Place the inflation needle or tapered nozzle into the item
to be inflated.
Note: Always make sure that the lever is in the up position
when not in use.
Operate your Inflator only with the universal valve adaptor or
with the included nozzles.
Note: Make sure that the universal valve adaptor is firmly
locked in place before turning the Inflator on.
Many inflatables have an internal flap that prevents air loss
during inflation. Unless this flap is displaced by the nozzle
the inflatable will not inflate. Push the nozzle firmly into the
valve to make sure that you push this flap out of the way.
Store the inflation needle inside one of the tapered nozzles
and snap the tapered nozzles into the storage slots located
on the bottom of the Inflator (fig. D).
Warning! Excessive air pressure may cause a hazardous
risk of bursting or personal injury. Check the manufacturer's
maximum pressure rating for the items being inflated.
Note: If the pressure rating for the item being inflated is
above 100 psi, note that the maximum run time is 10
minutes, leave to rest for 20 minutes before re-use.
Pressure gauge (fig. C)
Your Inflator is equipped with a built-in pressure gauge (2)
that will automatically shut off when a predetermined air
pressure is reached. The gauge, which is located on the top
of the Inflator, will give a pressure reading in psi, bar or kPa.
In the case of vehicle tyres, it is recommended that the
pressure reading be verified by checking with a separate tyre
