Safety instructions
General safety instructions
WARNING Read all safety warnings, instructions, illustrations and specifications
provided with this power tool. Failure to follow all
instructions listed below may result in electric
shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term "power tool" in the warnings refers to
your mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
1 WORK AREA SAFETY
a. Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or
dark areas invite accidents.
b. Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable
liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
c. Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to
lose control.
d. Never leave the power tool unattended. Only
leave the power tool when the tool in use has
come to a complete standstill.
2 ELECTRICAL SAFETY
a. Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never
modify the plug in any way. Do not use any
adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power
tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets
will reduce risk of electric shock.
b. Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded
surfaces, such as pipes, radiators, ranges and
refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
c. Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase
the risk of electric shock.
d. Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for
carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
e. When operating a power tool outdoors, use an
extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of
a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of
electric shock.
f. If operating a power tool in a damp location is
8
unavoidable, use a residual current device
(RCD) protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces
the risk of electric shock.
3 PERSONAL SAFETY
a. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use
common sense when operating a power tool. Do
not use a power tool while you are tired or under
the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A
moment of inattention while operating power
tools may result in serious personal injury.
b. Use personal protective equipment. Always
wear eye protection. Protective equipment such
as a dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat
or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
c. Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the
switch is in the off-position before connecting to
power source and/or battery pack, picking up or
carrying the tool. Carrying power tools with your
finger on the switch or energising power tools
that have the switch on invites accidents.
d. Remove any adjusting key or wrench before
turning the power tool on. A wrench or a key left
attached to a rotating part of the power tool may
result in personal injury.
e. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of
the power tool in unexpected situations.
f. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or
jewellery. Keep your hair and clothing away
from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or
long hair can be caught in moving parts.
g. If devices are provided for the connection of
dust extraction and collection facilities, ensure
these are connected and properly used. Use of
dust collection can reduce dust-related hazards.
h. Do not let familiarity gained from frequent use
of tools allow you to become complacent and ignore tool safety principles. A careless action can
cause severe injury within a fraction of a second.
4 POWER TOOL USE AND CARE
a. Do not force the power tool. Use the correct
power tool for your application. The correct
power tool will do the job better and safer at the
rate for which it was designed.
b. Do not use the power tool if the switch does not
turn it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be
controlled with the switch is dangerous and must
be repaired.
c. Disconnect the plug from the power source and/
or remove the battery pack, if detachable, from
the power tool before making any adjustments,
changing accessories, or storing power tools.
Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk
of starting the power tool accidentally.
d. Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with
the power tool or these instructions to operate
the power tool. Power tools are dangerous in the
hands of untrained users.
e. Maintain power tools and accessories. Check
for misalignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts and any other condition that
may affect the power tool’s operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired before use.
Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained
power tools.
f. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly
maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges
are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
g. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits
etc. in accordance with these instructions, taking into account the working conditions and the
work to be performed. Use of the power tool for
operations different from those intended could
result in a hazardous situation.
h. Keep handles and grasping surfaces dry, clean
and free from oil and grease. Slippery handles and
grasping surfaces do not allow for safe handling
and control of the tool in unexpected situations.
5 SERVICE
a. Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical replacement
parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
b. Only use original Festool parts for repair and
maintenance. The use of incompatible accessories or spare parts can result in electric shocks or
other injuries.
Machine-related safety instructions
– Dust that is harmful to your health may be produced as you work (e.g. paint products containing lead and some types of wood). Contact with
or inhalation of this dust may pose a risk for the
operating personnel or persons in the vicinity.
Observe the safety regulations that apply in your
country.
Wear a P2 respiratory mask to protect your
health. In enclosed spaces, ensure that
there is sufficient ventilation and connect an
extraction system.
–
–
–
–
Always wear protective goggles to protect
against sanding hazards.
Clean work equipment soaked in oils, for example sanding pad or polishing felt, with water and
allow to dry. Work equipment soaked in oil may
combust spontaneously.
Attention: Risk of fire! Avoid overheating the
grinding material and the sander. Always empty
the dust container before taking a break. Swarf
in the filter bag or filter of the mobile dust extractor may self-ignite in unfavourable conditions such as flying sparks when grinding metals.
Particular danger exists if the swarf is mixed with
paint, polyurethane residue or other chemical
materials and the grinding material is hot after
long periods of work.
If the power tool is dropped or falls, check for
damage to the machine and sanding pad. Remove the sanding pad for closer inspection. Repair damaged parts before using again. Broken
sanding pads and damaged machines can cause
injuries and machine instability.
Always use original Festool sanding pads. Foreign pads are not suitable for the speed of the
sander and may break.
Health hazard by dust
WARNING! Various dust created by power
sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling and other
construction activities contains chemicals
known (to the State of California) 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 chemically treated
lumber.
The 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 dust masks that
are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles. Wash hands after handling.
WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY, USER MUST
READ INSTRUCTION MANUAL.

WARNING
Unauthorised voltage or frequency!
Risk of accident
 The mains voltage and the frequency of the power source must correspond with the specifications on the machine's name plate.
 In North America, only Festool machines with
the voltage specifications 120 V/60 Hz may be
used.
Connecting and detaching the mains power cable see Fig. [2].
The switch [1-1] is an on/off switch (I = ON, 0 =
OFF).
 In case of a power failure or if the mains connector is removed, move the on/off switch immediately to the Off position. This prevents uncontrolled restarting.
Settings
12000 min-1 using the adjusting wheel.
WARNING
Risk of injury, electric shock
 Always pull the mains plug out of the socket before performing any type of work on the machine!
Electronics
Smooth start-up
The electronically controlled smooth start-up ensures that the machine starts up jolt-free.
Constant speed
The preselected motor speed is kept constant
through electronic control. This means that, if the
machine is used as intended (reasonable contact
pressure), a constant sanding speed is achieved.
This enables you to optimise the sanding speed to
suit the material (see chapter Working with the machine).
Replacing the sanding pad [3]
An optimal work result can only be achieved
using original accessories and consumables.
The use of non-original accessories or consumables invalidates the right to claim under warranty.
Warning! Do not perform any structural
changes in the open interior space of the machine when the sanding pad is dismantled.
Undo the four screws.
Remove the sanding pad by pulling it downwards.
Setting and adjusting the speed
Attach the new sanding pad.
The speed can be set [1-3] between 6000 and
Use four screws to tighten it by hand (2.5 Nm).

Hardness of the sanding pad
Adapted to the surface being processed, the machine can be equipped with sanding pads of different hardnesses.
Soft: Universal for coarse and fine sanding, for flat
and convex surfaces.
Extra-soft: Fine sanding of moulded parts, arches,
radii. Do not use on edges.
Attaching sanding accessories using StickFix [4]
Dust extraction
WARNING
Dust hazard
 Dust can be hazardous to health. Always work
with a dust extractor.
 Always read applicable national regulations before extracting hazardous dust.
Integral dust extractor with long-life dust bag
The suitable StickFix sandpaper and StickFix sanding cloth can be attached quickly and simply to the
StickFix sanding pad.
As standard, the sanders are equipped with an integral dust extractor. The sanding dust is extracted
through extraction openings in the sanding pad and
is collected in the dust bag.

Installing the dust bag [5]
Press the self-adhesive sanding accessory onto
the sanding pad [1-5].
In the case of a weakening adhesive effect of
the StickFix surface, the sanding pad accessories, in particular those which are not yet touching
the workpiece, may come loose from the sanding
pad and cause injuries. Replace the sanding pad!
12
Slide the dust bag adapter onto the extractor
connection piece.
Slide the dust bag onto the adapter until it clicks
into place.
5
Dust extraction with Festool's mobile dust extractor
To prevent having to frequently empty the dust bag
when carrying out sanding work for a long period of
time, you can connect Festool's mobile dust extractor (with an extraction hose diameter of 27 mm)
to the extractor connection piece [1-4].
1
Recommendation: Use anti-static extractor hose!
This helps reduce the electric charge.
Edge protector [6]
The edge protector [1-6] prevents the sanding pad
circumference from coming into contact with a surface (e.g. when sanding along a wall or a window),
thus preventing back-kick of the machine, or machine damage.
