WARNING: Read all safety warnings and instructions. Failure to follow the warnings and instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/ or serious injury.

Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.

The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless) power tool.

(2.2) 1) General Power Tool Safety

Warnings [Work area safety]a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.

b) Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gasses or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.

c) Keep children and bystanders away while operating power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.

(2.3) 2) General Power Tool Safety

Warnings [Electrical Safety]a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce the risk of electric shock.

b) Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.

c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock.

d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.

e) When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.

f) If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD) protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.

(2.4) 3) General Power Tool Safety

Warnings [Personal Safety].a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication.A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.

b) Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust masks, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.

c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before connecting to power source and or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energising the power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.

d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench or key left attached to a rotating part of a power tool may result in personal injury .

e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the power tool in unexpected situations.

f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be caught in moving parts.

g) If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection facilities, ensure that these are connected and properly used. Use of dust collection can reduce dust-related hazards.

(2.5) 4) General Power Tool Safety

Warnings [Power tool use and care].

a) Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for your application.The correct power tool will do the job better and safer at a rate for which it was designed.

b) Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on or off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.

c) Disconnect the power tool from the power source and/or battery pack from the power tool before making any adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power tools. Such preventative safety measures reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.

d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the power tool or these Instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.

e) Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of moving parts and any other condition that may affect the power tools operation. If damaged, have the power tool repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.

f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.

g) Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in accordance with these instructions, taking into account the working conditions and the work to be performed. Use of the power tool for operations different from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.

(2.6) 5) General Power Tool Safety

Warnings [Service]a) Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical replacement parts. This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.

The clamp can then be ‘closed’ around the Extension Tube, the pinch bolt replaced and tightened to secure the clamp in place.Fig. 6
  • Fit the ‘D’ handle to the clamp using the two (2) socket headed hex screws.Note: We recommend that the ‘D’ Handle clamp is positioned directly behind and is touching the Extension Tube ferrule. This locates the ‘D’ handle in the most convenient position for the majority of operators.Note: The design of the ‘D’ handle is such that ergonomic positioning of the handle on the clamp is possible. This ensures comfortable operation for both right-handed and left-handed users.
  • Insert the Flexible Extraction Hose fully into the end of the Extension Tube and tighten the sleeve nut to secure it in place. (Fig. 7)Fig. 7
  • The ‘free’ end of the Dust extraction Hose can now be connected to a suitable dust extraction and collection machine.Note: Follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer of the dust extraction machine being used.Note: A selection of Hose End Connectors is provided. These should ensure that this machine can be connected to most commercially available dust extraction machines.
  • To Change a Hose End Connector
  • Locate the two (2) ‘lugs’ which fit into the two (2) ‘notches’ in the Hose End Mounting Ring.
  • Using a flat bladed screwdriver, gently and carefully press the ‘lugs inwards, and at the same time ease the Mounting Ring away from the Hose End Connector. The Hose End Connector will release from the Mounting Ring.
  • Snap a new Hose End Connector onto the Mounting Ring.
  • Check that the ‘lugs’ have deployed into the ‘notches’.


Note: The Motor Driven Sanding Pad located in the swivelling Sanding Head of the machine, is fitted with a ‘hook and loop’ attachment system.The ‘loops’ on the back of the abrasive discs engage with the ‘hooks’ on the surface of the Sanding Pad.

To attach an abrasive disc:

  • Ensure that the Sanding Pad is clean and free from any dirt or debris.
  • Press the new abrasive disc onto the Sanding Pad with the palm of a hand.

Ensure that the holes in the new abrasive disc align with the dust extraction ports in the Sanding Pad. (Fig. 8)(Fig. 8)

To remove an abrasive disc:

  • Simply grip the edge of the abrasive disc and gently peel it from the Sanding Pad.


  • The ‘ON/OFF’ slide switch (Fig.9) is a latching type. Slide it forward to start the motor. Push forward and down on the central section of the switch to latch it in the ‘ON’ positionFig.9
  • Push down on the rear central section of the slide switch to release the switch and turn the motor ‘OFF’. The switch will automatically return to the ‘OFF’ position
  • The speed control dial (Fig. 10) is located forward of the ‘ON/OFF’ switch. Rotate this control dial to alter the speed of the motor.Fig. 10
  • The Sanding Head LED Light switch is positioned on top of a housing located to the RH (Right Hand) side of the Sanding Head casing. (Fig. 11a)Fig. 11 aThis light will provide illumination to the immediate area being worked upon.
  • The LED Projector Light (Fig. 11b). The ‘ON/OFF’ Rocker switch is located on the body of the light, underneath and to the rear. This Light will provide extra illumination to the area about to be worked upon.Fig. 11 b
  • A ring located just to the front edge of the integral protection stand can be rotated slightly.
  • Rotating this ring will reveal an air bleed port. (Fig. 12)Fig. 12
  • Revealing this air bleed port in part or in full, allows the operator to adjust the airflow from the Sanding Head to a connected dust extraction machine.
  • The operator should adjust this control to give the most effective dust extraction from the Sanding Head.WARNING: Even with an effective dust extraction/collecting machine attached to this machine the operator should still employ all relevant PPE procedures and processes. If working ‘on site’ consult the person responsible for Health & Safety on the site for extra guidance.


Body and Hand Positioning

  • This machine is a two (2) handed machine. Soft grip hand hold areas are provided along the machine.
  • An auxiliary ‘D’ handle is provided and is particularly useful when the machine is configured in Long Reach Mode.
  • Position your hands along the machine to provide the best and most comfortable combination of ‘reach’ and ‘leverage’ for the particular operation being undertaken.
  • Keep your hands away from the swivelling Sanding Head.
  • Do not stretch or overbalance. Reposition yourself so that you do not have to stretch.

    Caution: If ‘reach’ or access considerations necessitate the use by the operator of a stand-on platform, such a platform must be suitable, in good condition with all the safety features serviceable and stable in use e.g. a folding inside scaffold or ‘hop-on’ work platform.WARNING: The operator must NEVER overstretch.


The Sanding Head is attached to the main body of the machine by a type of Universal Joint. This allows the Sanding Head to swivel in multiple directions.

When in use the abrasive disc can effectively ‘float’ over the work surface. This action enables the operator to sweep the work surface from top to bottom or from side to side with minimal changes to their stance and foot position. This affords greater security and better balance for the operator.


Operational Advice

  • Configure the machine to the ‘Reach Mode’ required.
  • Connect the required Sanding Head to the machine.
  • Connect a suitable dust extraction and collection machine to the Drywall Sander.
  • Turn on the extraction unit.
  • Adopt a comfortable stance holding the Sander by the two most convenient and comfortable hand grips.
  • Turn on the Sanding Head LED Light.
  • Turn on the Sander, and if required the projector LED Light.
  • Position the Sanding Head lightly against the work surface, and apply just enough pressure to align the Sanding Head with the work surface.
  • Gently apply more pressure to engage the abrasive disc onto the work surface.
  • Move the Sander across the work surface in long overlapping sweeps. Apply only enough pressure to keep the abrasive disc flat against the work surface. Excessive pressure should be avoided as it can cause swirl marks and unevenness in the work surface.
  • Keep the Sander in constant motion whilst the abrasive disc is in contact with the work surface. Use a steady, sweeping motion, allowing the rotating abrasive disc to ‘float’ over the work surface. Moving the Sander erratically or concentrating for too long on one area can also cause swirl marks or unevenness in the work surface.WARNING: Do not allow the rotating abrasive disc to contact sharp objects such as protruding nails, screws etc or architectural wall fittings such as electrical boxes or switch plates etc. Damage to the Sander or the wall fittings could result.


The Sanding Head Brush Skirt (Fig. 13)Fig. 13The Brush Skirt surrounds the Sanding Pad to which the abrasive discs are applied. The Brush Skirt serves two (2) main purposes:

  • It extends below the surface of the abrasive discs so that it contacts the work surface first, orientating the Sanding Head. This helps prevent the rotating abrasive disc from ‘gouging’ the work surface on first contact.
  • It helps contain the dust particles within the swivelling Sanding Head until the airflow from an attached extraction machines sucks the dust away.

Over time, depending upon the frequency of use and the type of material sanded, the bristles on the Brush Skirt will become degraded and worn. The bristles on the Brush Skirt must be complete with no gaps or portions missing.

A new Brush Skirt has a bristle length of approximately 15mm. Replace the Brush Skirt when the length of the bristles is approximately 8mm, or when the bristles no longer extend below the surface of an installed sanding disc.

To replace the Brush Skirt

WARNING: Only attempt this procedure with the machine disconnected from the mains power supply.

  • Remove any attached abrasive disc to reveal the Sanding Pad and the centrally located Hex Headed Socket Screw that attaches the Pad to the motors drive spindle.
  • Holding the Sanding Pad with the palm of one hand (Fig. 14), insert the supplied 5mm Hex Key into the head of the central screw. Loosen and remove the screw. Remove the Sanding Pad from the motors drive spindle.Fig. 14
  • Use a cross-head screwdriver and remove the six (6) self tapping screws and the special fixing clips. (Fig. 15) that secure the Brush Skirt and lens into the Sanding Head.Fig. 15
  • Carefully pull and ease the Brush Skirt and lens from the Sanding Head.Installation of a new Brush Skirt is basically the reversal of the removal process.
  • During installation of a new Brush Skirt take care to not over tighten the six (6) self tapping screws. These should be firmly tightened but be careful not to strip the threads within the tapped holes.
  • Ensure that the special fixing clips are correctly positioned.
  • Reinstall the Sanding Pad on the motors drive spindle and secure in place with the Hex Headed Socket Screw.

Note: Changing the Brush Skirt will expose the interior of the Sanding Head. The operator should take the opportunity to examine, clean and remove any debris from within the Sanding Head, or from the exhaust ports and exhaust tubes fastened or contained within it.

(6.1) WARNING: Any maintenance must be carried out with the machine switched off and disconnected from the mains/ battery power supply. Check that all safety features and guards are operating correctly on a regular basis. Only use this machine if all guards/safety features are fully operational.All motor bearings in this machine are lubricated for life. No further lubrication is required. Use a clean, slightly damp cloth to clean the plastic parts of the machine. Do not use solvents or similar products which could damage the plastic parts.

WARNING: Do not attempt to clean by inserting pointed objects through openings in the machines casings etc. The machines air vents should be cleaned using compressed dry air. Excessive sparking may indicate the presence of dirt in the motor or worn out carbon brushes.

(6.2) If this is suspected have the machine serviced and the brushes replaced by a qualified technician.


Waste electrical products should not be disposed of with household waste. Please recycle where facilities exist. Check with your Local Authority or retailer for recycling advice.
