Safety Precautions and Product Care:
To get the most out of your Ryobi cordless 1-gallon air compressor, and to ensure safety while using it, always observe the following precautions:
Do not run the compressor for more than 15 minutes at a time. Allow it to rest for at least 15 minutes before using again.
Longer breaks can be allowed for shorter jobs.
Do not use the air compressor without the properly attached nozzles, hose, and accessories.
Clean the air compressor at least once a month. Follow the cleaning instructions in your manual.
Observe a safe distance from the exhaust. It can be harmful to touch the exhaust or operate the tool near flammable materials.
Use only Ryobi replacement parts when repairing your air tool.
Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the tool in any way.
Keep children away from the air compressor. It can cause serious injury if it is dropped or launched at someone.
Do not use the air compressor in an environment where oxygen is not plentiful (high altitude or space, for example).
Avoid getting oil or other lubricants on electrical components and wiring. This can damage the tool or cause a fire.
If this occurs, turn off the air compressor immediately and contact the manufacturer for repair.
The tool should never be used in a gaseous or liquid environment such as underwater or in a pool.
Be aware of the exhaust location at all times. Do not allow clothing or other flammable materials to enter the area.
Never attempt to operate the tool if it is damaged or malfunctioning in any way.
Do not aim the exhaust at yourself or anyone else at any time.
To ensure that your air compressor lasts as long as possible and continues to run smoothly, always clean and maintain it at least once a month. This involves the following:
Disconnect all power sources and power cords from the air compressor. Unplug the unit or turn off its circuit breaker.
Wipe down the body of the air compressor with a dry cloth to remove any dust or other debris. Clean off the nozzle, hoses, and all other external parts with soapy water.
Use a soft toothbrush to remove any stubborn dirt or grime. Thoroughly rinse all parts under warm water and allow them to dry completely before using again.
With the air compressor off, open the tank and remove any moisture with a dry towel.
Inspect all electrical parts, wiring, and connections for fraying, breaks, or other damage. (If damage is found, you will need to contact the manufacturer or a professional repair person.)
Inspect all rubber or plastic parts for cracks, breaks, or other damage. If any damage is found, the part should be replaced.
Never use gasoline, paint thinner, acetone, or any other volatile chemicals to clean your air compressor. These chemicals are harmful to rubber and plastic parts, and can destroy the lubricants used on mechanical parts.
Never attempt to modify or disassemble the air compressor in any way. Doing so can destroy its factory warranty and void any insurance coverage you have on it.
Never allow children to use an air compressor. Children do not have the judgment necessary to avoid dangerous situations, such as sticking fingers into the air intake vents.
In addition, the exhaust can be powerful enough to cause injury.
Using an Air Compressor Safely
Follow these tips when using your air compressor:
Do not point the air nozzle at yourself or anyone else. Keep other people and animals at least 10 feet away from the air nozzle at all times.
Do not exceed the maximum pressure rating for the hose. Most hoses are marked with a Max PSI rating.
Never “ride” the trigger. This means you should not hold down the trigger and run the compressor continuously.
This is a major cause of hose failure. (A common myth is that this causes wear and tear on the compressor, but in reality it is the opposite.)
Do not exceed the manufacturer’s maximum working pressure for the air compressor. Most models are marked with a Max PSI rating.
Follow all safety precautions listed for your specific model of air compressor.
If using an impact wrench, always wear protective eyewear.
Never lean over or put your face near the air nozzle. Air pressure can cause the fast-moving nozzle to hit with considerable force, which could result in serious eye injury.
When using an impact wrench or other power tool, make sure that the power cord is never in a position where it could cause the compressor to tip over.
When using an impact wrench or power tool, make sure the power cord is not in a position where it can be damaged by the fast-moving air nozzle.
Onrust Air Compressor Hose
Onrust Air Compressor Hose
Hoses are an essential part of any air compressor system. The hose transfers high-pressure air from the unit to the tools you are using.
An air compressor hose should be made of high-quality synthetic rubber that will maintain its elasticity in cold weather, resist deterioration, and provide long life without a reduction in size.
Onrust air hose is made of durable vinyl to resist wear, cracking, and tearing. It is highly resistant to oil and most chemicals and features a double-braided reinforcement for maximum strength, flexibility, and kink resistance.
Withstands extreme weather conditions from -65 to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Compatible with most air compressors.
12-inch length fits the majority of common air compressor tasks.
Onrust Air Compressor Accessories
You can extend your Onrust air hose further using one of these special couplers. Each coupler converts your 12-inch air hose into two 6-inch hoses, allowing you to reach even the most difficult spots.
The twist-lock connector is a simple way to quickly connect or disconnect your air hose. This allows you to quickly eliminate the possibility of accidentally detaching your air hose from the coupler.
A reliable, low-cost solution for all your hosing needs.
The C-clamp style connector is the quickest and easiest way to connect two hoses. All you have to do is align the two couplers, then squeeze the clamp around the assembly.
A great solution for quickly connecting two air hoses of different lengths.
Onrust High-Pressure Hose
The most important part of any air compressor system is the hose that transfers air from the pump to your tools.
