OPERATION

INSTALLING AND ADJUSTING AUXILIARY HANDLE (See Figure 3)
NOTE :
This handle should be used at all times to maintain complete
control of the tool.
You have the option of two working positions to provide the safest and most
comfortable control of your angle grinder. The handle screws clockwise into either
hole, located on each side of the gear case.
VIBRATION-DAMPENING AUXILIARY HANDLE The vibration-dampening auxiliary
handle reduces vibration, making operation more comfortable and secure.
ADJUSTING DISC GUARD (See Figure 4)
For work with grinding discs, the disc guard must be mounted.
The closed side of the disc guard must always point to the operator.
Disc Guard Adjustment
To move the guard you must raise the clamping lever (11).
Then rotate the guard to the position that will provide maximum protection against
sparks and debris for the work you are doing.
Finally, close the clamping lever (11) until it
touches the spindle housing.
NOTE:
If the clamping lever (11) does not
touch the spindle housing when closed,
the lever needs to be adjusted. Raise the
clamping lever and adjust the clamp adjusting
nut (9) so that the guard is securely clamped
when the lever is closed.

Put the inner flange onto the tool spindle. Ensure it is located on the two flats

Place the disc on the tool spindle and inner flange. Ensure it is correctly positioned
with the raised center portion resting on the inner flange. (See Fig. 6B)
Thread the outer flange onto the spindle by hand. Make sure the flange is facing in
the correct direction with the raised portion facing towards the disc (see Fig. 6B).

pressed in, use the provided spanner to tighten the outer flange onto the disc.
Insert the two spanner pins into two of the flange holes and turn clockwise to tighten
(See Fig. 6C). Release spindle lock button.
Note: After installing disc and before turning tool on, check that the disc is securely installed and
that it turns freely. Make sure that the disc does not graze against the guard or other tool parts.
