• Always be sure that the tool is switched off and

Switch action (Fig. 1)
• Before plugging in the tool, always check to see that
the switch trigger actuates properly and returns to the
"OFF" position when released.
To start the tool, simply pull the switch trigger. Release the
switch trigger to stop.
For continuous operation, pull the switch trigger and then
push in the lock button.
To stop the tool from the locked position, pull the switch
trigger fully, then release it.
Indicator lamp (Fig. 2)
The green power-ON indicator lamp lights up when the
tool is plugged to the mains. If the indicator lamp is lit but
the tool does not start even if the tool is switched ON, the
carbon brushes may be worn out, or the motor or the
switch may be defective. If the indicator lamp does not
light up, the mains cord or the indicator lamp may be
defective. When the mains cord is defective, the tool nei-
ther starts nor lights the indicator lamp. When the indicator
lamp is defective, the tool starts without the indicator lamp
lighting up.
• Always be sure that the tool is switched off and
unplugged before carrying out any work on the tool.
Installing shaft (Fig. 3 & 4)
Tighten the shaft with hex. Nut into the shaft holder as far
as the hex nut comes into contact with the holder. Hold
the notch in the shaft holder with wrench 19 so that it can-
not revolve. With the notch held so, tighten the hex nut
with another wrench 19 in the direction of arrow.
Installing mixing blades (Fig. 5 & 6)
Insert the mixing blade into the shaft and secure it with the
hex bolt.
At this time, position it so that the top end of the hex bolt
always fits to the flat surface on the shaft and tighten the
hex bolt with the provided wrench.
When installing the mixing blades at two different posi-
tions (which is applicable only to the mixing blades
allowed to do so), mount and secure the two mixing
blades on the flat part of the shaft with the hex bolts so
that the same surface of blades faces each other as
shown in the figure. (Fig. 7 & 8)


• Do not use to mix flammable material such as paint
with thinner used as solvent. Failure to do so may
cause injury.
1. Hold the rear handle of the tool with one hand and the
grip with the other hand firmly, place the mixing blade
under material fully and turn on the tool after making
sure work site safety.
2. Move the mixing blade up and down during the mixing
operation so that whole part of material can be mixed.
3. When finishing mixing, turn off the tool, make sure that
the mixing blade has come to a complete stop, and
then pull it out of the vessel.


• Always be sure that the tool is switched off and
unplugged before attempting to perform inspection or
Replacing filter (Fig. 9)
Replace the filter regularly as the cooling efficiency of the
tool is reduced due to built-up dust or particles in the filter.
Insert the slotted bit screwdriver and the like between the
tool and the cover as shown in the figure. Lift it up just like
using a shovel and remove the cover.
Replace the filter in the cover with a new one.
Reinstall the cover on the tool.
Replacing carbon brushes (Fig. 10)
Remove and check the carbon brushes regularly. Replace
when they wear down to the limit mark. Keep the carbon
brushes clean and free to slip in the holders. Both carbon
brushes should be replaced at the same time. Use only
identical carbon brushes.
Use a screwdriver to remove the brush holder caps. Take
out the worn carbon brushes, insert the new ones and
secure the brush holder caps. (Fig. 11)
To maintain product SAFETY and RELIABILITY, repairs,
any other maintenance or adjustment should be per-
formed by Makita Authorized Service Centers, always
