HAZARD
RISK OF BURSTING
Air Tank: The air tank on your compressor is designed and may be UM coded [for
units with air tanks greater than 6" (152.4 mm) diameter] according to ASME Section
VIII, Div. 1 rules. All pressure vessels should be inspected once every two years.
To find your state pressure vessels inspector, look under the Division of Labor and
Industries in the government section of a phone book .
The following conditions could lead to a weakening of the air tank, and result in a
violent air tank explosion:
WHAT CAN HAPPEN HOW TO PREVENT IT
• Failuretoproperlydraincondensed
water from air tank, causing rust
and thinning of the steel air tank.
• Drainairtankdailyoraftereachuse.
If air tank develops a leak, replace
it immediately with a new air tank
or replace the entire compressor.
• Modificationsorattempted
repairs to the air tank.
• Neverdrillinto,weld,ormakeany
modifications to the air tank or its
attachments. Never attempt to
repair a damaged or leaking air
tank. Replace with a new air tank.
• Unauthorizedmodifica-
tions to the safety valve or
any other components which
control air tank pressure.
• Theairtankisdesignedtowith-
stand specific operating pres-
sures. Never make adjustments
or parts substitutions to alter the
factory set operating pressures.
• Excessivevibrationcanweakenthe
air tank of a stationary compressor
and cause an explosion.
• The compressor must be properly
mounted, see Anchoring under
Installation.
Attachments & accessories:
• Exceedingthepressurerat-
ing of air tools, spray guns, air
operated accessories, tires,
and other inflatables can cause
them to explode or fly apart, and
could result in serious injury.
• Followtheequipmentmanufacturers
recommendation and never exceed
the maximum allowable pressure
rating of attachments. Never use
compressor to inflate small low
pressure objects such as children’s
toys, footballs, basketballs, etc.
Tires:
• Overinflationoftirescouldresultin
serious injury and property damage.
• Useatirepressuregaugetocheck
the tires pressure before each use
and while inflating tires; see the tire
sidewall for the correct tire pressure.
NOTE: Air tanks, compressors and simi-
lar equipment used to inflate tires can fill
small tires very rapidly. Adjust pressure
regulator on air supply to no more than
the rating of the tire pressure. Add air in
small increments and frequently use the
tire gauge to prevent over inflation.

Branch Circuit: Circuit carrying electricity from electrical panel to outlet.
To Lock Out Power: Place a lock on the line power switch so no one else can
turn on the power.
DUTY CYCLE
This air compressor pump is capable of running continuously. However, to prolong
the life of your air compressor, it is recommended that a 50%-75% average duty
cycle be maintained; that is, the air compressor pump should not run more than
30-45 minutes in any given hour.

ACCESSORIES
Accessories for this unit are available at the store the unit was purchased.
The use of any other accessory not recommended for use with
this tool could be hazardous. Use only accessories rated equal to or higher
than the rating of the air compressor.
ASSEMBLY
TOOLS REQUIRED FOR ASSEMBLY
1 - 9/16" socket or open end wrench
1 - Electric Drill
UNPACKING
1. Remove all packaging.
It may be necessary to brace or support one side of the outfit when
removing the pallet because the air compressor will have a tendency to tip.
2. Remove and discard the screws and washers holding the compressor to the
pallet.
3. Withthehelpofanotherpersoncarefullyremoveaircompressorfrompallet
and place on a level surface.
This compressor was shipped with oil in the pump crankcase.
Check oil before operating air compressor, see Check Oil under Maintenance.

ANCHORING OF THE AIR COMPRESSOR
Risk of bursting. Excessive vibration can weaken the air tank
and cause an explosion. The compressor must be properly mounted.
The air compressor MUST be bolted to a level, solid concrete surface. Use 3/8"
lag screws, washers and concrete anchors. If help is needed anchoring the air
compressor consult a licensed contractor.
1. Place the air compressor on a level,

3. Drill holes in the surface for the
concrete anchors. Install concrete
anchors.
4. Line-up holes in surface with holes
in air compressor feet.
9 - ENG
5. Place the washers (supplied) between the floor and air compressor feet, see
figure. If needed use shims to level the unit.
6. Place the 3/8" lag screws through the air compressor feet, washers and into
the anchors.
7. Torque 3/8" lag screws to 7-10 ft.-lbs (9.5-13.5 Nm).
WIRING INSTRUCTIONS
Improper electrical installation of this product may void its warranty
and your fire insurance. Have circuit wiring performed by qualified personnel such
as a licensed electrician who is familiar with the current national electrical code and
any prevailing local electrical codes.
Risk of electrical shock. Improper electrical grounding can
result in electrical shock. The wiring should be done by a qualified
electrician.
A qualified electrician needs to knows the following before wiring:
1. The amperage rating of the electrical box should be adequate. Refer to the
Specifications, in the parts manual, for this information.
2. The supply line should have the same electrical characteristics (voltage, cycle,
phase) as the motor. Refer to the motor nameplate, on side of motor, for this
information.
NOTE: The wiring must be the same as the motor nameplate voltage plus or
minus 10%. Refer to local codes for recommended wire sizes, correct wire size,
and maximum wire run; undersize wire causes high amp draw and overheating to
the motor.
Risk of electrical shock. Electrical wiring must be located
away from hot surfaces such as manifold assembly, compressor outlet tubes,
heads, or cylinders.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This product should be connected to a metallic, permanent wiring system, of an
equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the product.
VOLTAGE AND CIRCUIT PROTECTION
Refer to the Specifications for the voltage and minimum branch circuit
requirements.
Certain air compressors can be operated on a 15 amp circuit if the
following conditions are met.
1. Voltage supply to circuit must comply with the National Electrical Code.
2. Circuit is not used to supply any other electrical needs.
3. Extension cords comply with specifications.
4. Circuit is equipped with a 15 amp circuit breaker or 15 amp time delay fuse.
NOTE: If compressor is connected to a circuit protected by fuses, use only
time delay fuses. Time delay fuses should be marked "D" in Canada and "T"
in the US.
If any of the above conditions cannot be met, or if operation of the compressor
repeatedly causes interruption of the power, it may be necessary to operate it from
a 20 amp circuit. It is not necessary to change the cord set.
AIR DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM
Risk of bursting. Plastic or PVC pipe is not designed for use
with compressed air. Regardless of its indicated pressure rating, plastic pipe
can burst from air pressure. Use only metal pipe for air distribution lines.
The next figure represents a typical air distribution system. The following are tips
to remember when setting up the air compressor’s air distribution system.
