  Compressed air and particulate matter can cause eye and soft    

  tissue damage. Keep air stream away from skin and eyes.

• 

RISK OF BURNS

:

 Always wear gloves. Some exposed parts may   

  become hot during use.

• 

RISK TO BREATHING

  should be used as a source of breathable air.

• 

RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK

: This compressor is for use in dry    

  conditions only.

RISK OF FALLING

: This compressor will produce vibrations which  

  may cause the product to move along the surface. Only operate at  

  ground level.

• 

RISK OF FIRE

: This unit will become hot during operation. Allow to  

  cool before storing.

• 

RISK OF BURSTING

: Use only accessories rated for 90psi. Always  

  follow tyre manufacturer’s recommended inflation instructions. In  

  most cases they can be located on the side wall of the tyre. If you  

  are unsure, contact the manufacturer.

• 

DO NOT MODIFY

  There are no user serviceable parts inside.

• 

SAFE HANDLING

: Never carry the unit by the hose or power cord.

the hose or use accessories that stop the free flow of air. Damage to the 

unit can occur.

•  This product should never be left unattended during use.

•  Never allow children to operate this compressor.

•  This compressor may become HOT during operation. Do not touch the

BEFORE FIRST USE

•  Turn the compressor on before connecting to the tyre in order to    

 

  reduce stress on the motor.

•  Use for a maximum 20 minutes then allow to cool for 20 minutes.

•  To prevent damage to the air hose fitting, remove the inflator from the  

 

  tyre before disconnecting the hose from the compressor.

•  The black power clip to a Negative ground point. Do not connect the  

 

  Black clip directly to the battery.

•  Test the connections by switching the compressor to “on”. Air will   

 

  begin to flow.   

•  Connect the air hose by screwing the brass inflator onto the tyre valve  

 

  stem. Only finger tighten the inflator. Do not use any tool as you may  

 

  damage the inflator or the valve stem.

•  Watch the gauge closely, switch the unit off or remove the inflator from  

 

  the tyre when the manufacturer’s recommended pressure has been achieved. 

•  We recommend that you use a second tyre pressure gauge to verify  

 

  your tyres are inflated to the proper pressure.

•  Stopping and restarting at high pressure can overload and blow the  

 

  in-line fuse. 

  At higher inflation pressures, start the unit and then attach to the valve  

 

  stem. If you stop the unit and need to resume inflation, remove the  

 

  inflator tip from the tyre valve, start the unit and reattach with the unit  

 

 running.

•  Allow the compressor to cool and place neatly in the carry bag with the  

 

  clips securely fastened to the loops on the carry bag. To prevent    

 

  damage to the unit during storage repack in the original colour box.

•  Store the unit in a dry location.

•  Remember to replace the valve cover on the stem.

OVERHEATING PROTECTION CIRCUIT

The unit is equipped with an automatic protection device. In the event the unit 

reaches an unsafe operating temperature, a protection circuit will cut power to 

prevent damage to the unit. If the protection circuit activates, immediately 

disconnect the unit from the power source and allow it to cool.

The unit will cool in approximately 15 minutes, depending on environmental 

conditions. The protection circuit will 

automatically

 reset itself when the 

temperature returns to a safe operating level. High altitude and certain air 

temperatures can negatively affect the unit’s performance.

HARD MOUNTING

This unit may be hard mounted in a dry location. Be sure to use proper 

size wiring for your application. When using this unit with an air tank, 

you must install a back-flow preventing device to prevent damage to 

the cylinder head air valve.

•  When operating the unit, be sure to be in a safe location off the road 

  and away from traffic.

•  Unpack the unit and inspect for damage. Completely unwrap the  

  power cord.

•  Make sure that vehicle engine is running and place the unit on a dry  

  level surface.

  (See Picture 1. below)

    1. Slide retaining snap ring back.

    2. Slide the fittings together firmly.

     3. While holding fittings together firmly slide the outer ring forward to lock.

•  Connect the red alligator clamp to a positive 12 volt source. Connect  

  the black alligator clamp to a negative ground point. Do not connect  

  the black alligator clamp directly to the battery.

•  Test the connections by switching the compressor to “on”. Air will  

  begin to flow.

•  Connect the air hose by screwing the brass inflator onto the tyre valve  

  stem. Only finger tighten the inflator. Do not use any tool as you may  

  damage the inflator or the valve stem.

•  Watch the gauge closely and switch the unit off or remove the inflator  

  from the tyre when the manufacturer’s recommended pressure has  

  been achieved. 

•  Allow the compressor to cool before replacing neatly into the plastic  

  storage case with the alligator clamps and adaptors secured into  

  cavaties provided.

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING

 

We recommend that only qualified persons perform maintenance and 

servicing on the air compressor.

any type of maintenance. Wait for compressor to cool before servicing.

Ensure the unit has been switched off and has cooled down completely 

before cleaning.

•  Never immurse this unit in water.

•   Simply wipe down with a soft cloth.

•   IF THE UNIT STOPS 
  DURING OPERATION

1.

  Check the battery condition. Low voltage can trip 

the circuit breaker or trigger the protection feature.

2.

 Check the circuit breaker, reset if necessary.

3.

 The unit is equipped with an automatic protection 

device. In the event the unit reaches an unsafe 

operating temperature, a protection circuit will cut 

power to prevent damage to the unit. If the 

protection circuit activates, immediately disconnect 

the unit from the power source and allow it to cool.

TROUBLESHOOTING

   CAUTION

•  Small items will inflate quickly and can easily be damaged. Pay  

  special attention to bicycle tyres. They inflate very fast and can  

  rupture. Be prepared to stop the unit quickly when manufacturer’s  

  recommended inflation pressure is reached.

•  Use this compressor with 12 Volt DC systems only.

•  Keep the vehicle engine running while the compressor is working.
