DESCRIPTION
KNOW YOUR PAD SANDER (Fig. 2)
NOTE: Before attempting to use your sander, familiarize yourself with all of the
operating features and safety requirements.
Your 1/3-sheet pad 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 8-ft., 2-wire power cord
(no adapter needed).

1. Powerful 2.0 amp motor provides the torque, power and durability for a variety of
continuous sanding applications.
2. 12,000 orbits per minute with 1/16-in. orbit diameter matched with the correct
sandpaper grit for the surface being sanded provides fast material removal and/or a
fine, smooth finish.
3. Ergonomically designed rear handle and front assist handle with molded-in
comfort grip for maximum balance, control and gripping comfort.
4. Precision-tuned counterbalanced system reduces vibration for smooth operation
and less operator fatigue.
5. On/Off slide switch is conveniently located for easy control. Sealed to keep out
dust for long life. Lock-on for continuous sanding.
6. Live Tool Indicator green LED light comes on when sander is plugged into a power outlet.
7. Die-cast aluminum sanding base stands up to heavy-duty use.

provide secure paper retention and simple, fast paper changes.
