SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS cont.
WARNING: Read all safety warnings and instructions.
Failure to follow the warnings and instructions 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 electric (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless)
power tool.
WORK AREA SAFETY
1. Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered and dark areas invite accidents.
2. 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.
3. Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
4. MAKE SURE the work area has ample lighting so you can see the work and that
there are no obstructions that will interfere with safe operation BEFORE using your
buffer / polisher.
PERSONAL SAFETY
1. 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.
2. Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective
equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection
used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
3. 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 energizing power tools that have
the switch on invites accidents.
4. 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.
5. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables
better control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
6. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Keep your hair, clothing
and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry or long hair can be
caught in moving parts.
7. 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.

TOOL USE AND CARE SAFETY
! WARNING: BE SURE to read and understand all instructions before
operating this tool. Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result
in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal injury.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the battery pack 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.
4. 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.
5. Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts and any other condition that may affect the power tools
operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired before use. Many accidents
are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
6. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp
cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
7. Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc., in accordance with these
instructions and in the manner intended for the particular type of power tool,
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.
8. Use clamps or another practical way to secure and support the workpiece to a
stable platform.
9. Holding the work by hand or against your body leaves it unstable and may lead
to loss of control.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
1. 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.
2. Power tool plugs must match the outlet.
Never modify the plug in any way. Do not
use any adapter plugs with grounded
power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching
outlets will reduce risk of electric shock.
3. BEFORE plugging in the tool, BE SURE that
the outlet voltage supplied is within the
voltage marked on the tool’s data plate.
DO NOT use “AC only” rated tools with a
DC power supply.

ELECTRICAL SAFETY cont.
4. 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.
5. DO NOT expose power tools to rain or wet conditions or use power tools in
wet or damp locations. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
6. INSPECT tool cords for damage. Have damaged tool cords repaired at a Sears
Service Center. BE SURE to stay constantly aware of the cord location and keep
it well away from the moving blade.
7. DO NOT abuse the cord. NEVER use the cord to carry the tool by or to pull
the plug from the outlet. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving
parts. Replace damaged cords immediately. Damaged cords increase the risk of
electric shock.
8. When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suitable for
outdoor use marked “W-A” or “W”. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces
the risk of electric shock.
9. If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a Ground Fault
Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) protected supply. Use of a GFCI reduces the risk of
electric shock.
EXTENSION CORDS
USE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. 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. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line
voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. Table 1 shows the correct size to
use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the
next heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the heavier the cord.

5. Apply wax in a straight line with either a
side-to-side or back and forth motion.
ALWAYS use broad, even strokes when
applying wax (See Fig. 7).
Fig. 7
6. Start applying wax to the flat surfaces (hood,
trunk and roof) first. Wax one section at a
time (see Fig. 8).
7. After flat surfaces are covered with wax,
do the sides. The perimeter handle system
allows easy polishing of horizontal and
vertical surfaces. Hold tool with the cord
hanging free (see Fig. 9).

be duplicated, not even “by hand”.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT apply excessive
pressure against the work surface with this tool.
The random orbital motion feature on this tool
Fig. 9
will perform better when less pressure is
applied. Applying excessive pressure will slow
the random orbital motion and reduce the
effectiveness of the tool.
10. It is easiest to apply the wax to the entire
surface before starting the removal phase;
however, follow the specific
recommendations of the wax or polish
being used.
11. When you have finished applying wax with the applicator, bonnet, SHUT OFF the
buffer / polisher before removing from the car’s surface.

BUFFING AND POLISHING - REMOVING THE WAX FROM THE SURFACE
(See Fig. 12)
Fig. 12
NOTE: Remove wax in the same order in which
it was applied.
1. Wait until wax has dried to an even haze
on vehicle.
2. Place extension cord over your shoulder.
3. Turn buffer / polisher ON.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT apply excessive
pressure against the work surface with this tool.
The random orbital motion feature on this tool
will perform better when less pressure is applied. Appling excessive pressure will
slow the random orbital motion and reduce the effectiveness of the tool.
NOTE: For best results, use long, sweeping strokes in a criss-cross pattern when
removing wax.
4. Buff and polish the entire surface until all dried wax is removed. Remove the
bonnet from time to time and shake out the dried wax residue. A bonnet with
excess residue will cause streaking. You may need to replace the bonnet with a
new one if you can’t get it clean enough to avoid streaking.
5. Use a clean terry cloth bonnet for final buffing and polishing, or use the polishing
bonnet for the ultimate “showroom” shine.

CAR CARE TIPS
1. Wash and polish the car 3 to 4 times a year to help ensure paint protection.
2. Wash the car at least every 2 weeks with a car wash solution which will not harm
the finish or strip the wax. AVOID washing with household detergents.
3. Wash with a clean sponge and dry with a terry cloth towel to help prevent dirt from
scratching the paint. Start on the top and work down.
4. Remove bugs, bird droppings, tree sap and tar from the car’s surface on a daily
basis.
5. ALWAYS make sure that the car’s surface is cool before washing.
6. Avoid parking near sprinklers, because water spots are difficult to remove.
7. ALWAYS keep glass cleaner chemicals away from painted surfaces. Spray the
cleaner onto a towel, NOT directly on the windows.
! WARNING: The use of attachments or accessories that are not
recommended for this tool might be dangerous and could result in serious
injury.
Sears and other Craftsman® outlets offer a large selection of Craftsman
buffer / polisher accessories designed for all your buffing and polishing
applications.
Look for these Craftsman accessories. They are specially designed to make
your 10-in. Buffer / Polisher more efficient to use.
Wax Applicator Bonnets for applying waxes and polishes.
Terry Cloth Bonnets use for removing wax and for buffing and polishing.
MAINTENANCE
Polishing Bonnets for final buffing and polishing to a “showroom” shine.
1. Terry cloth bonnets, polishing bonnet and hand applicator pad can all be machine
washed in cold water, using a small amount of detergent. Machine dry at medium
temperature. HOWEVER, we recommend hand washing and air drying for longer
bonnet life.
2. Wax applicator bonnets should only be used once, then disposed of properly.
3. Remove the bonnet from the foam pad when the buffer / polisher is not is use,
so the pad can dry out and retain its original shape.
4. To prolong the life of the foam pad, ALWAYS store the buffer / polisher with the
pad face up.
5. NEVER USE ABRASIVE COMPOUNDS WITH THIS TOOL.
6. DO NOT apply too much wax to the bonnet. Applying too much wax causes the
bonnet to become saturated and it will not last as long. THIS MAKES
POLISHING MORE DIFFICULT AND IT TAKES LONGER.
7. If the bonnet is continually coming off the pad, you may be using too much wax.
8. If buffing seems difficult, you have used too much wax.
9. ONLY USE a mild soap solution and a damp sponge to clean the buffer / polisher.
10. DO NOT immerse any part of the buffer / polisher in liquid.
