Pre-Operating Procedures
Before using the SAMURAI Industrial Floor stripper, please perform the following procedures for the personal and property safety of the operator and jobsite and for optimal performance.
1. Before operating the floor stripper ensure that it is structurally and mechanically safe by checking the
following:
a. Perform a detailed visual inspection on the machine with particular attention to the following:
i. Are there any loose, worn or damaged parts? If so, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPERATE THE
MACHINE. Make note of required parts, and contact your authorized service centre for
replacement parts and further assistance to service the unit PRIOR to any further use.
ii. Is the machine, particularly the cutting blade and support mounts, clean and free of debris?
Small debris and other foreign objects can jam machine and cause the unit to malfunction,
leading to serious injury to the operator and property damage on the jobsite.
iii. Are the blades and support mounts balanced and securely attached to the floor stripper?
iv. Are there any cracks or damage on the machine? Contact your authorized service centre
immediately for advice and corrective measures. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPERATE THE
MACHINE until it is refurbished to factory standards.
b. Inspect the handles and power switch for the following:
i. Are both top and rear handles, as well as the power switch on the main unit properly and
securely attached to the machine?
ii. On the extension handle, are all the sections and pieces secured to each other? Is
the trigger switch working to factory standards? Consult your local health and safety
organization for any pointers for jobsite and machine operation safety.
!
If any of the above checks fail, please take necessary
steps to maintain or repair the unit before operating it
in any environment.
10
Pre-Operating Procedures cont’d ...
2. Before operating the floor stripper, perform the following environmental checks:
a. Is the work area free and clear of damp areas, leaks, flammable substances, electrical hazards, or
any other similar conditions?
b. Are there any standing pools of water or other conductive liquids and materials that can interfere
with the safe operation of the machine at the jobsite?
c. Has the work area been cleared of debris such as rags, string, wire, rocks, metal and other materials?
Such items could cause malfunction or damage to the floor stripper that could also be potentially
hazardous to the machine and operator.
d. Voltage Warning: Before connecting the tool to a power source, verify that the voltage supplied is
equal to 120V. A power source whose voltage is greater than that specified for the operation of the
tool can cause serious injury to the operator, as well as damaging the machine. If in doubt, DO NOT
CONNECT THE MACHINE TO THE UNKNOWN POWER SUPPLY.
e. Is there a reliable source of grounded electricity available? Use only GFCI receptacles.
f. If using an extension cord, is it in good condition and conforming to local safety codes?
Extension cords must be a 3-pole cord with a 3-pole plug and socket, rated for outdoor use. Our
recommendation is as follows:
A. Up to 100’ ft. = 14 AWG
B. Up to 200’ ft. = 12 AWG
C. Up to 300’ ft. = 10 AWG
D. Up to 400’ ft. = 8 AWG
Operating Procedures
A.
Installing the blades and support mounts for the SAMURAI
1. Ensure that the floor stripper is completely turned off, cooled, and at a complete stop prior to adjusting or
relocating the unit. Disconnect unit from power source.
2. Select the appropriate blade and mount required. Both the 4” parquet flooring blade and the 5-3/8”
multi-purpose blade (ideal for stairs) are used with different 3-hole top mounts. The 9” blade requires
both the 5-hole top mount and the matching plate extender. See Figs. 1, 2, & 3 to ensure that the
appropriate mounts are matched to the proper blade. Remove corresponding quantity of bolts for
mounting.
3. Place the unit, blade(s), support mount(s) and bolts on a clean and sturdy work bench. Due to the
weight of the unit and the sharpness of the blades, NEVER perform any adjustments to the floor stripper
without proper support. Failure to do so may lead to severe bodily harm, jobsite and machine damage.

The SAMURAI floor stripper is designed for use either as a standalone unit for small or difficult jobs, such as
stairs, or with the handle extension for clearing large areas. The following instructions apply to both usages.
!
DO NOT USE THE SAMURAI AS A PRY BAR, NAIL REMOVER, OR ANY
OTHER PURPOSES EXCEPT THOSE EXPLCITLY STATED IN THIS MANUAL.
ANY UNAUTHORISED OR NON-RECOMMENDED USE CAN LEAD TO SEVERE
BODILY HARM, JOBSITE & MACHINE DAMAGE.
1. Before connecting the unit to a grounded power source, flip ON/OFF switch (Fig.15) between both
positions to ensure that switch works. Press and release trigger switch verify that it is in good working
order.
2. Ensure that the floor stripper is completely turned off prior to adjusting or relocating the unit.
3. Verify that electrical power is supplied from a grounded and safe source, and that the source is of the
same voltage to that specified on the machine.
4. If using an extension cord, connect it to the machine, then plug the other end into the grounded
receptacle.
5. Position blade on the surface of the material to be removed.
6. Flip on ON/OFF switch to the ON position and tilt the machine forward, maintaining a steady and
consistent angle. If using with handle extension, pull on trigger.
7. Proceed as fast as the machine will allow. DO NOT FORCE MACHINE TO MOVE AT ANY OTHER RATE.
The nylon wheels at the bottom of the machine (Fig.16) are designed to allow the floor stripper to
glide on floor surface. These wheels MUST REMAIN IN CONTACT with the floor at ALL TIMES. The
floor stripper is operating at an incorrect angle if wheels are not touching the flooring surface. An
incorrectly positioned floor stripper may lead to severe damage to the floor, operator and the machine
itself.
8. Blade must be flush to the surface that it is scraping AT ALL TIMES. Uneven scraping results and
possible damage to job surface can result otherwise. Depending on the width of blade used, the
machine can remove material from 4” to 9” wide. Account for this working width as job proceeds.
9. If unit does not power on, check that the main power switch is switched ON, and that the unit is
connected to a live, grounded receptacle
