Specific Safety Rules
• Hold tool by insulated gripping surfaces when performing an operation where the
cutting tool may contact hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with a "live" wire will
make exposed metal parts of the tool "live" and shock the operator.
• Accessories must be rated for at least the speed recommended on the tool warning
label. Wheels and other accessories running over rated speed can fly apart and cause
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other
construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause
cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are:
• lead from lead-based paints,
• crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
• arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To
reduce your exposure to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with
approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that are specially designed to filter
out microscopic particles.
• Avoid prolonged contact with dust from power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling,
and other construction activities. Wear protective clothing and wash exposed areas
with soap and water. Allowing dust to get into your mouth, eyes, or lay on the skin may
promote absorption of harmful chemicals.
WARNING: Use of this tool can generate and/or disperse dust, which may cause seri-
ous and permanent respiratory or other injury. Always use NIOSH/OSHA approved respi-
ratory protection appropriate for the dust exposure. Direct particles away from face and body.
• Always wear eye protection.
• Be sure bonnet is snugly installed on pad.
• Keep hands and fingers away from rotating bonnet.
• Before turning the switch to the ON position, be sure the pad is free to revolve harmlessly.
• Inspect the bonnet frequently for wear, dirt or imbedded debris.
CAUTION: Do not allow the power cord to contact the rotating bonnet as it may become
quickly tangled around it. If this occurs, turn tool OFF and unplug the power cord before
attempting to untangle the cord. If the cord is damaged, have it repaired or replaced at your
local tool repair station.
• Never use a damaged or torn bonnet.
• Wear proper clothing, short sleeves, nothing loose or bulky, such as shop coat, etc.
• Do not turn tool on unless the polishing bonnet is against surface being polished.
• Be extremely careful when polishing around sharp or protruding objects on the car body.
• This product is designed as a polisher only. Do not use as a sander.
CAUTION: Do not use abrasive or rubbing compounds. The abrasive nature of these
products can damage painted surfaces.
CAUTION: Wear appropriate hearing protection during use. Under some conditions and
duration of use, noise from this product may contribute to hearing loss.
