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 FINSIHING MACHINES RATED
LESS THAN 150 VOLTS
WARNING: DO NOT USE GROUDING ADAPTERS ON FLOOR
MACINES IN CANADA. CHECKWITH CANADIAN CODES FOR
PROPER EQUIPMENT USAGE.
IMPROPER USE OF GROUND
ADAPTORS CAN CAUSE SERIOUS
INJURY, FIRE, OR BE FATAL.
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.
OPERATION / ACCESSORIES
CHOOSING THE RIGHT BRUSH AND DRIVE
BLOCK
Your floor machine is packed completely assembled
and ready for use after you install a brush or drive
block.
Your floor machine is designed to be used for many
different floor care applications. Make sure you use
the correct brush or pad for the type of job you want
to perform. (Accessories are available from the dealer
from whom the floor machine was purchased. See
Optional Accessories, Page 10)
When ordering brushes or drive blocks, refer to the
following chart and specify correct brush or block
diameter when ordering.
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.

so it rests on its wheels and upper handle section
(Figure 4). The brush and pad driver both attach in
the same manner; align the cut-outs on the inner
ring of the brush or pad driver with the tables on the
inside of the ring of the drive hub (Figure 5). Push
the brush or pad driver firmly in position, then turn
it counter-clockwise until it locks into place. To
remove, turn the brush or pad driver clockwise until
it stops, and then lift it off. NOTE: Always remove
the brush or pad driver when the machine is not in
use.
NOTE: Disconnect power cord from the
electrical outlet before installing or removing

Figure 7
GUIDELINES FOR OPERATON
• 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.
CLEAN UP AND STORAGE
After being used, your floor machine can be wiped
clean with a soft, damp cloth and should be stored in
a clean, dry place.
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.
