1 . SAFETY FIRST
Before servicing your tool, make sure to remove all fasteners, fuel cell and battery. Restrict DIY maintenance to the following areas:1. Battery2. Fuel Cell3. Feed System4. CylinderSelf-servicing attempts beyond these procedures will void the warranty. For other issues, consult an accredited service agent.In case of any other questions, please contact your local Paslode representative or visit www.paslode.com.au.

2. Conduct a general assessment
• We recommend tightening all screws and  bolts in your nailer every month. To be on  the cautious side, you may even assess your tool before each use.
• On a pneumatic (compressed air) nail  gun, ensure both the safety and the  trigger can move. Additionally, tighten any  loose cap screws to avoid leak.

3. Check the battery
• Inspect the battery indicator before  each use.
• Recharge the battery every time its light  turns solid red.

4. Check the fuel cell
• To determine the presence of fuel, hold  the fuel cell in the upright position. Place  the metering stem against a solid surface  and push it three or four times. If the cell  still contains fuel, it will release a small  amount each time. CAUTION: Always  wear safety glasses while performing this  assessment. Never attempt this test near  a spark or open flame, or where the fuel  may get in contact with your eyes.
• The fuel cell lasts for approximately 24  months from the date of manufacture.  Replace it as necessary and dispose of  empty cell at a battery collection point.

5. Inspect the feed system
• At Paslode, we make an extensive range  of steel fasteners. Their tested  high quality ensures they achieve top  performance in any timber density.
• We treat all framing nails with our  exclusive glue. It helps them achieve  100% more withdraw resistance than any  other brand. This allows you to get the  most out of your nail gun while saving you time and money on every project.

6. Clean the cylinder
• To remove the cylinder from the body of  the nail gun, please refer to our Quick  Reference Guide to Tool Cleaning.
• Lubricate the walls and head with 5 large  drops of Paslode Cordless Lubricating Oil.Once you have completed these steps, put your nailer back together. Ensure that all components are in place for a reliable and effective action.
