IMPORTANT 
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS 

(For All Tools) 



WARNING: When using electric tools, basic safety 
precautions should always be followed to reduce the 
risk of fire, electric shock, and personal injury, 
including the following: 

Read All Instructions. 



1 . Keep work area clean. Cluttered areas and benches invite injuries. 

2. Consider work area environment. Do not use power tools in damp or wet 
locations. Keep work area well lit. Do not expose power tools to rain. Do not 
use tool in presence of flammable liquids or gases. 

3. Keep children away. Alt visitors should be kept away from work area. Do not 
let visitors contact tool or extension cord. 

4. Store idle tools. When not in use, tools should be locked-up or stored in a 
dry, high place — out of reach of children. 

5. Do not force tool. It will do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was 
intended. 

6. Use correct tool. Do not force small tool or attachment to do the job of a 
heavy-duty tool. Do not use tool for purpose not intended. 

7. Dress appropriately. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. They can be 
caught in moving parts. Rubber gloves and non-skid footwear are 
recommended when working outdoors. Wear protective hair covering to 
contain long hair. 

8. Use safety glasses. Also use face or dust mask if cutting operation is dusty. 

9. Do not abuse cord. Never carry tool by cord or yank it to disconnect from 
receptacle. Keep cord from heat, oil, and sharp edges. 

1 0. Secure workpiece. Use clamps or a vise to hold work. It is safer than using 
your hand; it also leaves both hands free to operate tool. 

11. Do not over-reach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. 

1 2. Maintain tools with care. Keep tools sharp and clean for better and safer 
performance. Follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories. 
Inspect tool cords periodically and, if damaged, have repaired by authorized 
service facility. Inspect extension cords periodically and replace if damaged. 
Keep handles dry, clean, and free from oi! and grease. 

1 3. Disconnect tools when not in use, before servicing, and when changing 
accessories, such as blades, bits, and cutters. 

1 4. Remove adjusting keys and wrenches. Check to ensure that keys and 
adjusting wrenches are removed from tool before turning the tool on. 

1 5. Avoid unintentional starting. Do not carry plugged-in tool with finger on 
switch. Be sure switch is OFF when plugging in.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS continued 



16. Outdoor use extension cords. When toot is used outdoors, use only 
extension cords intended for outdoor use and so marked. 

17. Stay alert. Watch what you are doing. Do not operate toot when you are tired. 

18. Check damaged parts. Before further use of the tool, a guard or other part 
that is damaged should be carefully checked to determine that it will operate 
properly and perform its intended function. Check for alignment of moving 
parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and any other 
conditions that may affect tool operation. A guard or other part that is damaged 
should be properly repaired or replaced by an authorized service center unless 
otherwise indicated elsewhere in this instruction manual. Defective switches 
should be replaced by an authorized service center. Do not use tool if the 
switch does not turn it on and off. 

19. Guard against electric shock. Prevent body contact with grounded surfaces, 
for example: pipes, radiators, ranges, refrigerator enclosures. 

20. Replacement parts. When servicing, use only identical replacement part. 

21 . Polarized plugs: To reduce the risk of electric shock, this equipment has a 
polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit in a 
polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse 
the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper 
outlet. Do not change the plug in any way. 



VOLTAGE WARNING: Before connecting the tool to a power source (receptacle 
outlet, etc.) be sure the voltage supplied is the same as that specified on the 
nameplate of the tool. A power source with voltage greater than that specified for 
the tool can result in SERIOUS INJURY to the user, as well as damage the tool. If in 
doubt, DO NOT PLUG IN THE TOOL. Using a power source with voltage less than 
the nameplate rating is harmful to the motor. 



ADDITIONAL SAFETY RULES 

1. Hold the tool firmly. 

2. Do not leave the tool running. Operate the tool only when hand-held. 

3. This tool has not been waterproofed, so do not use water on the workpiece 
surface.

INSTALLATION 



CAUTION: Always be sure the tool is switched off and unplugged before 
installing or removing the sandpaper. 

Attaching the Sandpaper 

To attach the sandpaper: 

1 . Operate the lever to open the paper 
clamp. 

2. Insert the sandpaper end into the 
clamp. Center the sandpaper and 
align the edges parallel to the pad. 
Prebending the paper makes 
attachment easier. 

3. Once the sandpaper is in place, lower 
the lever to close the clamp. 

4. Repeat the same process at the other 
end of the base, keeping the sandpaper tight when closing the clamp. 

CAUTION: After inserting the sandpaper, make sure the teeth of the clamp hold it securely. 
Tighten the sandpaper if it is loose. Tight paper sands faster. 




Punch Plate 



When using the dust bag, make holes in the sandpaper using the punch plate as follows: 
To punch holes in the sandpaper: 

1 . Set the tool upside down. 

2. Place the punch plate over the 
sandpaper so that the bent sides of 
the punch plate are flush with the 
sandpaper edges. 

3. Press the punch plate to make holes 
in the sandpaper. 

CAUTION: Be sure to remove the punch 
plate before operating the tool. 



Dust Bag 




The use of the dust bag makes sanding 
operations clean and dust collection 
easy. 

To attach dust bag: 

1 . Fit the bag's entry port onto the 
dust spout on the tool. Make 
sure that the hole in the bag's 
entry port is just over the pimple- 
like protrusion on the dust spout. 



Note: For the best results, empty the dust bag when it becomes approximately 
( half full, tapping it lightly to remove as much dust as possible.

OPERATION 



CAUTION: Do not block the motor vent with your hand. 

Never run the tool without paper; you may seriously damage the pad. 



Switch Action

Operating the Tool 

To operate the tool:

2. Turn the tool on and wait until it 
attains full speed. 

3. Gently place the tool onto the 
workpiece and apply pressure to 
sand the workpiece surface. 





9 



Operating Tips 

* A finishing sander is generally used to remove only a smalt amount of 
material at a time. Since the quality of the surface is more important than 
the amount of stock removed, do not bear down on the tool. 

* Keep the base flush with the workpiece at all times. 

* Excessive pressure may damage the paper and shorten tool life.

MAINTENANCE 



CAUTION: Always be sure that the tool is switched off and unplugged before 
attempting to perform inspection or maintenance. 



Carbon Brushes 

The tool will stop when the carbon brushes wear to a certain length. When 
this occurs, both carbon brushes should be replaced. 

To maintain product SAFETY and RELIABILITY, repairs, carbon brush inspection and 
replacement, or any other maintenance and adjustment should be performed by 
Makita Authorized or Factory Service Centers, always using Makita replacement 
parts. 



OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES 



CAUTION: These accessories or attachments are recommended for use with your Makita
