GENERAL SAFETY RULES
 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 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.
 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.
 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.
 Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection.
Dust mask, nonskid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
 Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long
hair. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be drawn
into air vents.
 Do not use on a ladder or unstable support. Stable
footing on a solid surface enables better control of the
tool in unexpected situations.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
TOOL USE AND CARE
 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 threewire 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.
 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.
 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.
 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.
 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.
 Keep the tool and its handle dry, clean and free from
oil and grease. Always use a clean cloth when cleaning. Never use brake fluids, gasoline, petroleum-based
products, or any strong solvents to clean your tool.
Following this rule will reduce the risk of loss of control
and deterioration of the enclosure plastic.
WARNING:
Read and understand all instructions. Failure to follow
all instructions listed below, may result in electric shock,
fire and/or serious personal injury.

GENERAL SAFETY RULES
SERVICE
 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
shock or injury.
 Tool service must be performed only by qualified
repair personnel. Service or maintenance performed by
unqualified personnel may result in a risk of injury.
SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
 Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when
performing an operation where the cutting tool may
contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with a
“live” wire will make exposed metal parts of the cutting
tool “live” and shock the operator.
Constantly stay aware of cord location. Following this
rule will reduce the risk of electric shock or fire.
 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.
 Keep hands away from work surface. Following this
rule will reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
 Do not use this buffer/polisher as a component of
other products. Following this rule will reduce the risk
of serious personal injury.
 Inspect for rough surfaces, protrusions, and snags
on work surface before using the buffer/polisher. Following this rule will reduce the risk of serious personal
injury.
 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 gauge size (A.W.G.) of at least 16 is
recommended for an extension cord 50 feet or less
in length. A cord exceeding 100 feet is not recommended. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The
smaller the gauge 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.

have only impact-resistant lenses; they are NOT safety
glasses. 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 lungs. Wear a face or dust mask if the
operation is dusty. Following this rule will reduce the risk
of serious personal injury.
 If the power supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced
only by the manufacturer or by an authorized service
center to avoid risk.
 Protect your hearing. Wear hearing protection during
extended periods of operation. Following this rule will
reduce the risk of serious personal injury.
 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.

ELECTRICAL
DOUBLE INSULATION
EXTENSION CORDS
Double insulation is a concept in safety in electric power
tools, which eliminates the need for the usual threewire 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.
When using a power tool at a considerable distance from
a power source, be sure to use an extension cord that has
the capacity to handle the current the tool will draw. An
undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in
overheating and loss of power. Use the chart to determine
the minimum wire size required in an extension cord. Only
round jacketed cords listed by Underwriter’s Laboratories
(UL) should be used.
When working outdoors with a tool, use an extension cord
that is designed for outside use. This type of cord is designated with “WA” on the cord’s jacket.
Before using any extension cord, inspect it for loose or
exposed wires and cut or worn insulation.
WARNING:
The double insulated system is intended to protect
the user from shock resulting from a break in the tool’s
internal insulation. Observe all normal safety precautions
to avoid electrical shock.
NOTE: 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.

APPLICATIONS
You may use this tool for the purpose listed below:
 Polishing and buffing cars, boats, RVs, personal watercraft,
motorcycles, hardwood floors, and large furniture
PREPARE THE SURFACE
For best results, the surface should be clean and dry. Most
high-gloss surfaces can be cleaned with a mild soap and
water solution. For removal of stubborn dirt such as road
tar, grease, and bug stains, you can use a mild ammonia
solution such as that used in glass cleaners. Before using
any cleaning product, check the label for recommended
applications and follow the directions for use.
Never apply cleaner directly onto surface to be polished.
Apply to a clean cloth then use the cloth to clean the surface.
Do not use any type of abrasive cleanser as it may damage
or scratch the surface.
Fig. 3
ATTACH THE APPLICATION BONNET
See Figure 3.
WARNING:
WARNING:
To avoid injury, always make sure the buffer/polisher is
unplugged before attaching bonnets.
Before connecting the buffer/polisher to the power
source, always check to make sure the switch is not in
ON position. Failure to do so could result in accidental
starting of the buffer/polisher, resulting in possible serious personal injury.
The buffer/polisher comes with two bonnets, one for applying
the polish to the surface and another for buffing the surface.
Both are fitted with a drawstring. The application bonnet is
the one made of terry cloth.
To attach the application bonnet to the pad, loosen the drawstring so the bonnet fits completely over the pad. Place the
bonnet over the pad so the outer edge can be drawn over
the top of the pad. Carefully tighten the drawstring around
the pad and secure it with a double-tied bow knot. Tuck the
knot and the drawstring completely inside the bonnet.
ON/OFF SWITCH
See Figure 2.
The ON/OFF switch is located on each side of the buffer/
polisher. To turn the tool ON, push the switch to the left. To
turn the tool OFF, push the switch to the right.

OPERATION
WARNING:
The drawstring must be tucked securely inside the bonnet before turning the buffer/polisher on. Failure to do
so could result in the drawstring being caught between
the motor housing and orbiting pad, increasing the risk
of serious personal injury.
APPLY POLISH TO THE APPLICATION BONNET
Most polishes are either in paste or liquid form. Before using
any polish, read all directions on appropriate applications
and proper use.
APPLICATION OF PASTE POLISH
See Figure 4.
Use a putty knife or other flat, blunt object to apply approximately one rounded teaspoon of paste onto the bonnet. Evenly
spread the paste over the entire surface of the bonnet.
NOTE: Do not apply paste directly to the surface being
polished.
Fig. 4
APPLICATION OF LIQUID POLISH
See Figure 5.
Apply a small circle of liquid (about the size of a half-dollar)
around the center of the bonnet, followed by two more
rings, each slightly larger than the previous one. After the
first application, the bonnet will not absorb as much polish. Apply two rings of polish to the bonnet for subsequent
applications, using half of the initial quantity.
APPLY POLISH TO SURFACE
See Figure 6.
While holding the buffer/polisher firmly against the surface,
slide the ON/OFF switch to the ON position (to the left).
Always start and stop the polisher on or against the surface
being polished.
Begin by applying polish to larger flat surfaces, such as the
hood, trunk, and roof. Use a broad sweeping motion in a
crisscross pattern. Do not press down on the surface with
the polisher. Let the orbital action of the pad and bonnet
do the work.
Once flat surfaces have been covered, apply polish to curved
surfaces such as car doors and quarter panels. Use small
circular motions. Grip the polisher firmly, allowing the cord
to hang free.
Fig. 5
CAUTION:
To avoid damaging the motor from overheating, do not
let your hand cover the air vents.
After applying polish to the entire surface, turn polisher off
by pushing the ON/OFF switch to the right. Wait until the
pad stops rotating before lifting the polisher from the surface.
Unplug the polisher.
For hard to reach areas, such as the underside of bumpers
or side mirrors, apply polish by hand.

OPERATION
CHANGE TO BUFFING/POLISHING BONNET
See Figure 7.
Remove the application bonnet by loosening the drawstring
and slipping the bonnet off the pad. Replace with buffing/
polishing bonnet, attaching it the same way as the application bonnet.
Buff the surface in the same order as it was polished, starting
with large flat surfaces and ending with hard-to reach areas.
Use the same motion as for polishing, a broad sweeping crisscross pattern on large flat areas and small circular motions
on all other areas. Remember to let the tool do the work.
NOTE: The part number for one replacement applicator bonnet and one replacement buffing bonnet is A38RB01.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE
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, dust, oil, grease, etc.
Both the application and buffing/polishing bonnets are reusable. For maximum life and performance, hand wash after
use and allow them to air dry. If needed, the bonnets can
be machine washed in cold water with a small amount of
detergent, then machine dried using low heat.
WARNING:
FOAM PAD
Do not at any time let brake fluids, gasoline, petroleumbased products, penetrating oils, etc., come in contact
with plastic parts. Chemicals can damage, weaken or
destroy plastic which may result in serious personal
injury.
It is important that the pad retain its original shape and dimensions. Allow it to dry completely after each use. Make sure
to remove the bonnets, wash them, and store separately.
Polisher should be stored with the pad facing up in order to
extend pad life and retain its shape. Be careful not to use
too much polish at one time. If the pad becomes saturated,
it will not last as long.
Electric tools used on fiberglass material, wallboard, spackling compounds, or plaster are subject to accelerated wear
and possible premature failure because the fiberglass chips
and grindings are highly abrasive to bearings, brushes,
