EYE PROTECTION which conforms to ANSI specifications and provides protection against
flying particles both from the FRONT and SIDE should ALWAYS be worn by the operator
and others in the work area when connecting to air supply, loading, operating or servicing
this tool. Eye protection is required to guard against flying fasteners and debris, which
could cause severe eye injury.
The employer and/or user must ensure that proper eye protection is worn. Eye protection
equipment must conform to the requirements of the American National Standards
Institute, ANSI Z87.1 and provide both frontal and side protection. NOTE: Non-side shielded
spectacles and face shields alone do not provide adequate protection.
CAUTION: Additional Safety Protection will be required in some environments. For
example, the working area may include exposure to noise level which can lead to hearing
damage. The employer and user must ensure that any necessary hearing protection is
provided and used by the operator and others in the work area. Some environments will
require the use of head protection equipment. When required, the employer and user must
ensure that head protection conforming to ANSI Z89.1 is used.
Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction
activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth
defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
• lead from lead-based paints
• crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products
• arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of
work. To reduce your exposure to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and
work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that are specially
designed to filter out microscopic particles.
AIR SUPPLY AND CONNECTIONS
Do not use oxygen, combustible gases, or bottled gases as a power source for this tool as
tool may explode, possibly causing injury.
Do not use supply sources which can potentially exceed 200 P.S.I.G. as tool may burst,
possibly causing injury.
The connector on the tool must not hold pressure when air supply is disconnected. If a
wrong fitting is used, the tool can remain charged with air after disconnecting and thus will
be able to drive a fastener even after the air line is disconnected possibly causing injury.
Do not pull trigger or depress contact arm while connected to the air supply as the tool
may cycle, possibly causing injury.
Always disconnect air supply: 1.) Before making adjustments; 2.) When servicing the tool;
3.) When clearing a jam; 4.) When tool is not in use; 5.) When moving to a different work
area, as accidental actuation may occur, possibly causing injury.
