Key Points:

 Before cleaning and servicing, let the tool cool down, remove the battery and fuel cell too,

 Use only official Paslode Lubricating Oil - It's designed to withstand high temperatures, reduce combustion residue and condition rubber seals and o-rings,

 Use only official Paslode cleaner - It's deigned not to damage the nailer's electrical, metal, plastic and rubber parts,

 Clean the Paslode using a lint-free cloth - This prevents any debris being left inside of the tool, and avoids damaging the inside of the nail gun,

 Tighten all screws when reassembling - This ensures the tool is correctly put back together, resulting in no damage to the tool or user,

 Test the tool - Make sure the tool is functioning correctly (don't worry if a small amount of smoke comes out, this is normal).

 Use only genuine Paslode Parts - This ensures no damage is caused to the tool or the user (We only sell genuine parts!)
