General safety instructions for air tools
Do not use the device in explosive environments
with flammable liquids, gasses or dust.
Never work on materials which are or could
potentially be highly flammable or explosive.
Check the device for damage before startup.
Always make sure that the device is in perfect
condition each time before use.
Always be attentive when working! Unexpected
movement of the device may cause hazards.
Avoid placing your body in an unnatural posi-
tion. Keep proper footing and balance at all
times. By doing this you will be in a better posi-
tion to control the compressed air unit in unfore-
Do not use any device if its switch is defective.
A device that can no longer be switched on
and off is dangerous and must be repaired.
Store the device out of the reach of children
when it is not in use.
Do not let anyone use the device if he or she is
not familiar with it or has not read the instructions
and advice. Compressed air units are dangerous
when they are used by inexperienced people.
Maintain the device carefully. Check that moving
device parts are working properly and move
freely. Check for any parts that are broken or
damaged enough to detrimentally affect the
functioning of the device. Have damaged parts
repaired before using the device. Many acci-
dents have their origins in poorly maintained
Switch the device off if you do not use it any-
Always wear personal protective
equipment and safety glasses. Wear-
ing personal protective equipment
such as dust mask, non-slip safety shoes, safety
helmet or ear protectors, depending on the type
of air tool and its application, reduces the risk
Check the connections and supply lines. All
maintenance devices, couplings and hoses must
be equipped to meet the pressure and air amounts
specified in the device specific values. Pressure
that is too low influences the functioning of the
device; pressure that is too high can cause
damage to property and personal injury.
Protect hoses from kinks, constrictions, solvents
and sharp edges.
Keep hoses away from heat, oil and rotating
Make sure that the hose clamps are always
tightly fastened. If the hose clamps are not
tightly fastened or are damaged, the air could
Replace damaged hoses immediately. A dam-
aged supply line may result in the air hose
whipping about and may result in injuries.
If the power cable of the appliance is damaged,
it has to be replaced by the manufacturer or its
service department or a similarly qualified per-
son in order to avoid hazards.
Do not use the device when tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol or medications.
One moment of carelessness when using the
device may result in serious injuries.
Do not directly inhale the exhaust air.
Keep exhaust air away from the eyes. Exhaust
air from the air tool may contain water, oil,
metal particles or contaminants from inside the
compressor. This may damage your health.
BE CAREFUL WHEN SET-
TING DOWN THE device! Always put down
the device so it does not come into contact
with the trigger. This could potentially result in
accidental activation of the device, which again
could result in hazards.
Only use suitable accessories. These may be
purchased from the manufacturer. Using non-
OEM accessories may result in hazards.
Only use filtered and regulated compressed air.
Dust, caustic vapours and / or moisture may
damage the motor of the compressed air tool.
The hose must be designed for at least 150 %
of the maximum pressure generated by the
The tool and supply line must be equipped with
a hose coupling to completely release pressure
when disconnecting the coupling hose.
Do not modify this device in any way without
the manufacturer's approval.
Only use the device with the specified pressure
(approx. 8 bar max.).
