Load the battery into the nailer's battery compartment, and press firmly until the battery locking clip engages and the battery is secure.
Insert the gas cell into its compartment, aligning the valve with the adapter. Close the lid firmly.
Load a strip of nails into the nailer's rail assembly, sliding the follower button for access (image 1). Press the nailer's tip onto the surface where you want the nail (image 2).
Pull the trigger. The battery ignites the gas/air mixture and powers the motor to drive a nail into the surface.
Release the trigger. This causes the internal fan to cool the motor assembly, and to release any exhaust gases.
Always follow the manufacturer's guidelines carefully when using any power tools, and take particular care when loading batteries or gas cells. Wear eye protection and work in a well-ventilated area. Keep all power tools locked away from children. Some tools will require regular servicing to work efficiently, but contact your supplier to do this rather than attempting it yourself.
