IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:
WARNING:
ELECTRIC SHOCK CAN CAUSE SERIOUS
INJURY OR BE FATAL. PLEASE READ THE
FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS ON THE USE
AND OPERATIONS OF FLOOR FINISHING
MACHINES.
• Your floor machine is equipped with a safety switch lock and power switch triggers designed for your safety. Do not attempt to bypass or defeat the safety switch lock. Never
use any device to lock the power switch triggers in the “ON” position.
• Do not leave the floor machine plugged in. Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical
cord when not in use and before servicing or changing the brushes or pads.
• Do not allow the machine to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when used
near children. Do not leave the machine connected to an electrical outlet unattended.
• Use only as described in this manual. Use only manufacturer’s recommended attachments.
• Do not use with a damaged cord or plug. If the machine is not working as it should, has
been dropped, damaged, or left outdoors, return it to a service center before using.
• Use care to keep the electrical supply cord around sharp edges or corners. Keep the cord
away from the heated surfaces.
• Connect to properly grounded (3-wire) outlet only. Refer to Grounding Instructions,
Page 4-5.
• Do not use extension cords or outlets with inadequate current carrying capacity.
• Turn off all controls before unplugging.
• Do not unplug by pulling on the cord. To unplug, grasp the plug and pull.
• Do not handle the plug or floor machine with wet hands.
• Wind the cord no tighter than is necessary to retain it during storage. Refer to Cord
Storage, Page 9.
• Use extra care when working on or near stairs.
• Do not use in conjunction with flammable or combustible liquids such as gasoline, or
use in areas where explosive vapor or dust may be present.
• Store your floor machine indoors in a cool, dry area.
• Keep your work area well lighted.
• WARNING: To avoid electrical shock, use indoor only.
WARNING:
RISK OF EXPLOSION. FLOOR SANDING
MACHINE CAN RESULT IN AN EXPLOSIVE
MIXTURE OF FINE DUST AND AIR. USE FLOOR
SANDING MACHINE ONLY IN A
WELL-VENTILATED AREA, FREE FROM ANY
FLAME OR MATCH
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This appliance is equipped with a cord that has an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
FOR FLOOR FINISHING MACHINES RATED LESS THAN
150 VOLTS
Improper connection of an equipment grounding conductor can result in risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance. If it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. This appliance is for use on a nominal 120 volt circuit and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Figure 1.
A temporary adapter which looks like the adapter illustrated in Figure 2 may be used to connect this plug to a two pole receptacle, as shown, if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet (Figure 1) can be installed by a qualified electrician. The green colored rigid ear, lug, or the like extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box cover. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place by metal screw.
FOR FLOOR FINISHING MACHINES RATED 150-220 VOLTS:
If the machine is provided with an attachment plug cap as shown in Figure 3, it is intended for use on a 240 volt (nominal) circuit. No adapter is available for this cap.
WARNING:
DO NOT USE GROUNDING
ADAPTERS ON FLOOR MACHINES IN
CANADA. CHECK WITH CANADIAN CODE
FOR PROPER EQUIPMENT USAGE.
IMPROPER USE OF GROUND ADAPTORS CAN
CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY, FIRE, OR BE FATAL.

CONTROLS
TO TURN THE MACHINE ON
The operating handle must be lowered and locked to the proper operating position before switching the
machine ON. Place both hands firmly on the handle grips with your fingers around the power triggers.
Do NOT apply pressure on the triggers before the safety switch lock is disengaged.
Disengage the safety switch lock by pushing it forward with one thumb. Then, while holding the safety
switch lock in the disengaged position, squeeze the power triggers toward the handle grips and return
your thumb to the handle grip.
Push forward to
disengage safety
switch lock.
To stop the machine, simply release the triggers. The safety switch lock will automatically return to the
engaged position.
GUIDELINES FOR OPERATION
• Your floor machine is a very sensitive, powerful unit. When in operation, it should be guided gradually and smoothly without sudden or rough motions. You will want to practice with your machine on a
smooth surface until you have experience in operating it.
• For ease of operation, always keep the brush or pad surface level, balanced, and flat on the floor at all
times.
• Always adjust the operating handle to a comfortable height at which the brush or pad surface is balanced before starting the machine. (See Handle Adjustment Page 4)
• Your floor machine will operate differently on various surfaces. For example, there will be much more
resistance when the machine is used with a brush on carpeted surfaces than when it is used with a pad
on a smooth surface. The operator should be prepared to adjust for these differences.
• BEGIN OPERATING THE FLOOR MACHINE WITH THE BRUSH OR PAD SURFACE LEVEL,
BALANCED AND FLAT ON THE FLOOR.
• To move the machine to the right, slowly apply slight upward pressure on the handle.
• To move the machine to the left, slowly apply slight downward pressure on the handle.
• To move the machine forward or backward, keep the brush or pad flat on the floor and push or pull
the machine in the desired direction.
DO NOT LET THE MACHINE REST ON THE PAD OR BRUSH FOR AN EXTENDED
PERIOD OF TIME. This may alter the shape of the pad or brush which may cause the machine
to wobble
ADJUSTMENTS
HANDLE ADJUSTMENT
The handle can be adjusted to any desired work position by
simply pushing up on the handle lock (Figure 5). Move the handle to the desired position, then firmly push down on the handle lock which will lock the handle in position.
