For 2 compressors delivering at least a total of 14 CFM @ 45 p.s.i.
Preface : Our 3/4" snow-guns operate using (2) water hoses that need to be converted into (2) air hoses that are 5/8" diameter. A standard water hose (5/8") is needed for the water supply. Remember 2 air compressors are needed and a total of 3 water hoses; 2 for air lines and 1 for water line are needed for this snow-gun.
Part 1 : Set-Up
1.) Connect water hose to water hyrant then connect water hose to snow-gun. ( Make sure water valve is losed ).
2.) Connect water hoses aka air hoses up to the snow-gun.
3.) Turn on ater from hydrant.
4.) Turn compressors on; make sure regulators are closed.
5.) After tanks fill with desired pressure, open the regulators. ****DO NOT EXCEED AIR PRESSURES BEYOND 45 P.S.I. THIS COULD CAUSE BURSTING IN THE HOSES UNLESS RATED FOR HIGH PRESSURES****
6.) Open the water valve slowly until a fine mist is visible.
Part 2 : Shut-Down
1.) Turn water valve off from snow-gun, then turn water off from hydrant. Disconnect water hose from hydrant only.
2.) Open the water valve all the way; drain the water hose by plugging the nozzle with a piece of object, NOT with your finger! Do this precedure for about 45 seconds. Then shut off water valve from snow-gun.
3.) Turn off compressors.
4.) After tanks are drained disconnect air hoses from snow-gun.
5.) Disconnect hoses from compressors and disconnect water hose from sno-gun.
Part 3 : Pre-Cautions.
1.) Never ever disconnect air hoses when under pressure.
2.) Replace hoses immediately if dry-rotted or worn.
3.) If compressors are not rated for 100% cont. duty, do not leave your compressors run for a long period of time.
4.) Stay clear of nozzle when in operation.
5.) Do not modify/change the snow-gun in any way.
6.) Teenaged young adults under the age of 18 should be supervised by an adult.
7.) Never ever leave snow-gun unattended/run when no-body is home.
8.) Use common sense when operating the compressors and the snow-gun.
Part 4 : Feeeze-Up Potential.
If a freeze-up should occur, follow part 2 (shut-down) quickly. Freeze-Ups occur about 20% of the time when using 5/8" air hoses compared to 70% of the time when using standard 3/8" air hoses.
