DESCRIPTION

5. Operator's Manual
KNOW YOUR RANDOM ORBIT SANDER (Fig. 2)
NOTE: Before attempting to use your sander, familiarize yourself with all of the
operating features and safety requirements.
Your Professional 5" Random Orbit Sander has a precision-built electric motor and it should
be connected to a 120-volt, 60-Hz AC ONLY power supply (normal household current).
DO NOT operate on direct current (DC). The large voltage drop will cause a loss of power
and the motor will overheat. If the sander does not operate when plugged into correct
120-volt, 60-Hz AC ONLY outlet, check the power supply. This sander has a 10-ft, 2-wire
power cord (no adapter needed).
This Random Orbit Sander has the following features:
1. Powerful 3.0 amp motor provides the torque, power and durability for a variety
of continuous sanding applications.
2. Variable speed 5,000 to 12,000 OPM orbits per minute (no-load speed) is controlled
by variable speed dial. Match with the correct speed and sandpaper grit to the surface
being sanded for either fast material removal or a fine, smooth finish.
3. Random orbital action with 1/16-in. orbit diameter helps to provide a swirl free finish.
4. Ergonomically designed Palm Grip Handle with Molded-in Comfort Grip
for maximum balance, control, gripping comfort and reduced operator fatigue.
5. Precision-tuned counterbalanced system reduces vibration for smooth operation
and less operator fatigue.
