GENERAL SAFETY RULES
WARNING:
Read and understand all instructions. Failure to follow all instructions listed below, may result in electric
shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
WORK AREA
Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered
benches and dark areas invite accidents.
Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable
liquids, gases, or dust. Power tools may create
sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away
while operating a power tool. Distractions can
cause you to lose control.
Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before turning the tool on. A wrench or a key that is left attached to a rotating part of the tool may result in
personal injury.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing and balance enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations. Do not use on a ladder or unstable support.
Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask, nonskid safety shoes, hard hat, or
hearing protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
Double insulated tools are equipped with a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one
way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet,
reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a
qualified electrician to install a polarized outlet.
Do not change the plug in any way. Double insulation
eliminates the need for the three-wire
grounded power cord and grounded power supply
system.
Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces,
such as pipes, radiators, ranges, and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if
your body is grounded.
Don’t expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the
risk of electric shock.
TOOL USE AND CARE
Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to
carry the tools or pull the plug from an outlet.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges, or
moving parts. Replace damaged cords immediately. Damaged cords increase the risk of electric
shock.
Do not use tool if switch does not turn it on or
off. Any tool that cannot be controlled with the switch
is dangerous and must be repaired.
Disconnect the plug from power source before
making any adjustments, changing accessories,
or storing the tool. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
Store idle tools out of the reach of children and
other untrained persons. Tools are dangerous in
the hands of untrained users.
Maintain tools with care. Keep cutting tools sharp
and clean. Properly maintained tools with sharp
cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier
to control.
Check for misalignment or binding of moving
parts, breakage of parts, and any other condition that may affect the tool’s operation. If damaged, have the tool serviced before using. Many
accidents are caused by poorly maintained tools.
Use only accessories that are recommended by
the manufacturer for your model. Accessories that
may be suitable for one tool, may become hazardous when used on another tool.
When operating a power tool outside, use an
outdoor extension cord marked “W-A” or “W”.
These cords are rated for outdoor use and reduce
the risk of electric shock.
Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use
common sense when operating a power tool. Do
not use tool while tired or under the influence of
drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in
serious personal injury.
3
Use clamps or other practical way to secure and
support the workpiece to a stable platform. Holding the work by hand or against your body is unstable and may lead to loss of control.
Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your
application. The correct tool will do the job better
and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
PERSONAL SAFETY
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your hair, clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose
clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be caught in moving parts or drawn into air vents.
Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is off
before plugging in. Carrying tools with your finger
on the switch or plugging in tools that have the switch
on, invites accidents.
GENERAL SAFETY RULES
SERVICE
Tool service must be performed only by qualified repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed by unqualified personnel could result in a risk
of injury.
When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement parts. Follow instructions in the Maintenance section of this manual. Use of unauthorized
parts or failure to follow Maintenance Instructions
may create a risk of electric shock or injury.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the tool may contact hidden
wiring or its cord. Contact with a “live” wire will make exposed metal parts of the tool “live” and shock the operator.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY RULES
Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure to
use one heavy enough to carry the current your
product will draw. A wire gage size (A.W.G.) of at
least 16 is recommended for an extension cord
100 feet or less in length. A cord exceeding 100
feet is not recommended. If in doubt, use the next
heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the
heavier the cord. An undersized cord will cause a
drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and
overheating.
Know your power tool. Read operator’s manual
carefully. Learn its applications and limitations,
as well as the specific potential hazards related
to this tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk
of electric shock, fire, or serious injury.
Always wear safety glasses. Everyday eyeglasses have only impact-resistant lenses; they
are NOT safety glasses. Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
Protect your lungs. Wear a face or dust mask if
the operation is dusty. Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
Inspect for and remove all nails from lumber before using this tool. Following this rule will reduce
the risk of serious personal injury.
Protect your hearing. Wear hearing protection
during extended periods of operation. Following
this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
Drugs, alcohol, medication. Do not operate tool
while under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or
any medication. Following this rule will reduce the
risk of electric shock, fire, or serious personal injury.
Inspect tool cords periodically and, if damaged,
have repaired at your nearest authorized service
center. Constantly stay aware of cord location.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric
shock or fire.
Save these instructions. Refer to them frequently
and use them to instruct others who may use
this tool. If you loan someone this tool, loan them
these instructions also.
Check damaged parts. Before further use of the
tool, a guard or other part that is damaged should
be carefully checked to determine that it will
operate properly and perform its intended function. Check for alignment of moving parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and any other conditions that may affect its
operation. A guard or other part that is damaged
should be properly repaired or replaced by an
authorized service center. Following this rule will
reduce the risk of shock, fire, or serious injury.
WARNING:
Some dust created by power sanding, sawing,
grinding, drilling, and other construction activities
contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth
defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples
of these chemicals are:
• lead from lead-based paints,
• crystalline silica from bricks and cement
and other masonry products, and
• arsenic and chromium from chemicallytreated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending
on how often you do this type of work. To reduce
your exposure to these chemicals: work in a well
ventilated area, and work with approved safety
equipment, such as those dust masks that are
specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
Do not abuse cord. Never carry the tool by the
cord or yank it to disconnect it from the receptacle. Keep cord away from heat, oil, and sharp
edges. Following this rule will reduce the risk of electric shock or fire.

FEATURES
DOUBLE INSULATION
ELECTRIC MOTOR
Double insulation is a concept in safety in electric power
tools, which eliminates the need for the usual three-wire
grounded power cord. All exposed metal parts are
isolated from the internal metal motor components with
protecting insulation. Double insulated tools do not need
to be grounded.
Your sander has a precision built electric motor. It
should be connected to a power supply that is 120
volts, 60 Hz, AC only (normal household current). Do
not operate this tool on direct current (DC). A substantial
voltage drop will cause a loss of power and the motor will
overheat. If your tool does not operate when plugged
into an outlet, double-check the power supply.
WARNING:
SWITCH
The double insulated system is intended to protect
the user from shock resulting from a break in the
tool's internal wiring. Observe all normal safety precautions to avoid electrical shock.
Your sander has a conveniently located trigger switch.
LOCK-ON
The lock-on feature allows you to lock the sander on
when you operate it continuously for extended periods of
time.
Important: Servicing of a tool with double insulation
requires extreme care and knowledge of the system and
should be performed only by a qualified service
technician. For service, we suggest you return the tool to
your nearest authorized service center for repair. Always
use original factory replacement parts when servicing.
DUST COLLECTION BAG
The dust collection bag attaches to the sander and
keeps dust to a minimum.
ERGONOMIC DESIGN

SELECTING SANDING BELTS
Selecting the correct size and type of sanding belt is an
important step in achieving a high quality sanded finish.
Aluminum oxide, silicon carbide, and other synthetic
abrasives are best for power sanding.
In general, when sanding, coarse grit removes the most
material and fine grit produces the best finish. The
condition of the surface to be sanded determines which
grit will do the best job. If the surface is rough, start with
a coarse grit and sand until the surface is uniform. Then
use medium grit to remove scratches left by the coarser
grit. Finally, use finer grit for finishing the surface. Always
continue sanding with each grit until the surface is
uniform.

OPERATION
OPERATING THE SANDER
See Figure 10.
Follow these steps to operate the sander.
Secure the work to prevent it from moving under the
sander.
WARNING:
Unsecured work could be thrown towards the operator causing injury.
Turn the sander on and let the motor reach its maximum speed before placing the sander on the work
surface.
Lower the sander to the work surface with a slight
forward motion.
Move the sander slowly over the work surface, using
the rear handle to control the sander and the front
handle to guide the sander.
Fig. 10
NOTE: Allowing the sander to remain in one place
will result in an uneven surface.
WARNING:
Keep a firm grip on the sander with both hands at all
times. Failure to do so could result in loss of control
leading to possible serious injury.
We designed the sander to provide the proper weight on
the sanding belt. Excessive pressure will result in the
following:
Uneven work.
Clogged sanding belts.
Premature sanding belt wear.
Possible motor burnout.
Irregular sanding belt tracking.
Fig. 11
PROPER HAND PLACEMENT
See Figure 11.
For ease of operation and maintaining proper control,
the sander has a front handle and a rear handle. These
handles allow two-handed operation, which aids in
maintaining control, keeping the sanding area level with
the workpiece, and keeping hands clear of the sanding
belt. When operating the sander, always hold the front
handle with your left hand and the rear handle with your
right hand.
WARNING:
Do not let your fingers rest over the front or right
edge of the sander. If the sanding belt were to run
off, or if it were not properly adjusted, your fingers
could come in contact with the moving sanding belt
resulting in possible serious injury.
WARNING:
Keep hands and fingers clear of moving sanding
belt, front idler roller, and driver roller assembly.
Failure to do so will result in serious personal injury.
13
OPERATION
The front roller of the sander is not designed for
contour sanding. Sanding on the front roller could
cause irregularity in the sanding belt tracking.
HELPFUL TIPS
If the sanding belt slips or doesn’t track while sanding, you may be applying too much pressure. When
this occurs, remove the sander from the workpiece.
If you properly adjust the belt tracking, the sanding
belt will return to its normal and correct position on
the driver roller and front roller.
Use a coarser sanding belt for heavy sanding, not
heavy pressure. The weight of the tool is sufficient to
provide adequate pressure at the correct location.
MAINTENANCE
WARNING:
When servicing use only identical Ryobi replacement parts. Use of any other parts may create a hazard or cause
product damage.
Electric tools used on fiberglass material, wallboard,
spackling compounds, or plaster are subject to
accelerated wear and possible premature failure, as the
fiberglass chips and grindings are highly abrasive to
bearings, brushes, commutators, etc. Consequently, we
do not recommend that this tool be used for extended
work on these types of materials. If, however, you do
work with any of these materials, it is extremely important
that you clean the tool frequently by blowing it with an air
jet.
GENERAL
Avoid using solvents when cleaning plastic parts. Most
plastics are susceptible to damage from various types of
commercial solvents and may be damaged by their use.
Use clean cloths to remove dirt, carbon dust, etc.
WARNING:
Do not at any time let brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-based products, penetrating oils, etc. come in
contact with plastic parts. They contain chemicals
that can damage, weaken, or destroy plastic.
WARNING:
Always wear safety goggles or safety glasses with
side shields during power tool operation or when
blowing dust. If operation is dusty, also wear a dust
mask.
