Personal safety
fStayalert,watch whatyouaredoing,andusecommon sensewhen
operatingapneumatictool.Donotuseapneumatictoolwhiletired
or under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment
of inattention while operating a pneumatic tool may result in personal
injury.
fUse personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Protective equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard
hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce
personal injuries.
fPrevent unintentional starting. Make sure that the pneumatic tool
is switched off before connecting it to the air supply, picking it up
or carrying it. When your finger is on the On/Off switch while carrying
the pneumatic tool or when connecting the pneumatic tool to the air
supply while it is switched on, accidents can occur.
fRemove any adjustment tools before switching on the pneumatic
tool.Awrenchorkeyleftattachedtoarotatingpartofapneumatictool
may result in personal injury.
fDo not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
This enables better control of the pneumatic tool in unexpected situa-
tions.
fDress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your
hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes,
jewellery or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
fIf devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and
collection facilities, ensure these are connected and properly
used. Use of dust collection can reduce dust-related hazards.
fDo not directly inhale the exhaust air. Avoid exposing the eyes to
exhaust air. The pneumatic tool’s exhaust air can contain water, oil,
metal particles and debris from the compressor. This can cause dam-
age to one‘s health.
Pneumatic tool use and care
fUse the clamping devices or a vice to secure and support the work-
piece. Holding the workpiece by hand or against your body will not al-
low for safe operation of the pneumatic tool.

Service
fHave your pneumatic tool repaired only through a qualified repair
person and only using original replacement parts. This will ensure
that the safety of the pneumatic tool is maintained.
Safety Warnings for Compressed-air Nailers/Staplers
Wear safety goggles.
fAlways assume that the pneumatic tool is loaded with fasteners.
Careless handling of the pneumatic tool can lead to unexpected shot
actuation of fasteners and cause injury.
fWhen working,hold the pneumatic tool in such a manner that your
headandbody cannotbeinjuredincaseofsudden kickback dueto
a malfunction of the energy supply or from hard objects/locations
in the workpiece.
fNever point the pneumatic tool at yourself or at persons close by.
Unexpected actuation will expel a fastener, which can lead to injury.
fDo not actuate the pneumatic tool until firmly placed against the
workpiece. When the pneumatic tool is not in contact with the work-
piece,the fastener can bounce awayfromthe fasteningpoint andover-
load the pneumatic tool.
Donotworkonladdersorscaffoldswhentheactuation
system “Contact actuation” is set. In particular, do not
move from one fastening location to another, close
boxes or enclosures, or fasten transport-securing fix-
tures on e.g., vehicles and waggons, via scaffolds, stairs, ladders or
ladder-like constructions, such as roof battens. With this actuation
system, a fastener will be discharged each time when accidentally apply-
ing the pneumatic tool while the discharge lock-off is pressed in. This can
lead to injury.
fObserve the conditions of the job site. It is possible that fasteners
canburstthroughthinworkpiecesor bedeflectedwhenworkingincor-
ners or against edges, and harm persons.
Disconnect the air supply, when the fastener is
jammed in the pneumatic tool. When the pneumatic tool
is still connected to the power supply, it can accidentally
be actuated when removing a jammed fastener.
fUse caution when removing a jammed or stuck fastener. The sys-
tem can be under tension and cause the fastener to be shot or thrust
out, while attempting to clear the jam.
fDonotusethistopneumatictooltofastenelectricalwiring. Itisnot
suitable for fastening electrical wiring, can damage the insulation of

Assembly
Connecting the Air Supply
Make sure that the pressure of the compressed-air system is below the
maximum permitted rated pressure ofthe pneumatic tool. Firstly, set the
air pressure to the lower value of the recommended rated pressure (see
“Technical Data”).
When in doubt, check the pressure at the air inlet with a pressure gauge
with the pneumatic tool switched on.
For maximum performance, the values for the supply-air hose 13 (con-
nection thread, maximum operating pressure, inner hose diameter, max-
imum hose length; see “Technical Data”) must be observed.
The compressed air supplied should be free of foreign material and mois-
turetoprotectthetoolfromdamage,contamination,andtheformationof
rust.
All fittings, connecting lines and hoses must be dimensioned for the pres-
sure and the required air volume.
Avoid restrictions in the air supply, e.g., from pinching, kinking, or
stretching!
Connecting the Air Supply to the Pneumatic Tool (see figure A)
– Empty the magazine 6.
(See “Emptying the Magazine”, page 18)
For the following worksteps, a fastener can be discharged when interi-
or parts of the pneumatic tool are not in the starting position due to re-
pairs, maintenance or transport.
– Connecttheairconnector3withasupply-airhose13equippedwithan
air-connection coupling 12.

Operation
Actuation systems
The pneumatic tool can be operated with two different actuations sys-
tems:
– Single actuation with safety run
Withthisactuationsystem,thedischargelock-off10must firstbefirm-
lypressed against the workpiece. A fastener is not discharged until the
trigger is pulled.
Afterwards, further discharging procedures can only be actuated,
when the trigger and the discharge lock-off have first been set back to
the starting position.
– Contact actuation
With this actuation system, the trigger must be pulled first. A fastener
is always discharged when the discharge lock-off 10 is firmly pressed
against the workpiece while the trigger is pressed.
This enables a higher working speed to be achieved.
