Typically the A-weighted sound pressure level of the product is 76 dB(A). Uncertainty K=3 dB. The noise level when working can exceed 80 dB(A). Wear hearing protection! Vibration total values ah (triax vector sum) and uncertainty K determined according to EN 60745: ah=5.5 m/s2 , K=1.5 m/s2 . Thevibrationemissionlevelgiveninthisinformationsheethas been measured in accordance with a standardised test given inEN60745andmaybeusedtocompareonetoolwithanoth- er. It may be used for a preliminary assessment of exposure. The declared vibration emission level represents the main ap- plications of the tool. However if the tool is used for different applications, with different accessories or poorly maintained, the vibration emission may differ. This may significantly in- crease the exposure level over the total working period. An estimation of the level of exposure to vibration should also take into account the times when the tool is switched off or when it is running but not actually doing the job. This may sig- nificantly reduce the exposure level over the total working pe- riod. Identify additional safety measures to protect the operator from the effectsof vibration such as: maintain the tool and the accessories, keep the hands warm, organisation of work pat- terns.

English | 13 Bosch Power Tools 2 609 002 309 | (21.4.11) Certain dusts, such as oak or beech dust, are considered as carcinogenic, especially in connection with wood-treat- ment additives (chromate, wood preservative). Materials containing asbestos may only be worked by specialists. – Asfaraspossible,useadust extractionsystemsuitable for the material. – Provide for good ventilation of the working place. – It is recommended to wear a P2 filter-class respirator. Observe the relevant regulations in your country for the materials to be worked. f Prevent dust accumulation at the workplace. Dusts can easily ignite. Integrated Dust Extraction with Dust Box (see Fig. A1 – A4) Attach the dust box 2 onto the extraction outlet 7 until it latches. To empty the dust box 2, press the latching levers 3 on the side of the dust box (n). Pull off the dust box toward the bot- tom (o). Before opening the dust box 2, it is recommended to loosen the dust from the filter element by gently striking it against a firm support (as shown in the figure). Grasp the dust box 2 by the recessed grip, fold the filter ele- ment 8 upward and empty the dust box. Clean the thin plates of the filter element 8 with a soft brush. External Dust Extraction (see figure B) Slide the extraction adapter 9 onto the outletpiece 7. Ensure that the latching levers of the extraction adapter engage. The extraction adapter 9 accepts a vacuum hose with a diameter of 19 mm. Connect the vacuum hose 10 to a vacuum cleaner (accesso- ry). An overview for connecting to various vacuum cleaners can be found at the end of this manual. For removal of the extraction adapter 9, press the latching le- vers together at the rear and pull the extraction adapter off. The vacuum cleaner must be suitable for the material being worked. When vacuuming dry dust that is especially detrimental to health or carcinogenic, use a special vacuum cleaner. Replacing the Sanding Sheet (see figure C) When attaching a new sanding sheet, remove any dust or de- bris from the sanding plate 5 (e. g. with a brush). To ensure optimum dust extraction, pay attention that the punched holes in the sanding sheet match with the holes in the sanding plate. The sanding plate 5 is fitted with Velcro backing for quick and easy fastening of sanding sheets with Velcro adhesion. Before attaching the sanding sheet 4, free the Velcro backing of the sanding plate 5 from any debris by tapping against it in order to enable optimum adhesion. The machine is fitted with 2 sanding sheets that can be changed individually, depending on the degree of wear. f Only use the machine when both sanding sheets are mounted. f Only use sanding sheets with the same grain size. Position the sanding sheet 4 flush alongside one edge of the sanding plate 5, then lay the sanding sheet onto the sanding plate and press firmly. To remove the sanding sheet 4, grasp it at one of the tips and pull it off from the sanding plate 5. Sanding sheets of the Bosch Delta Sander can be used. Sanding accessories, such as fleece pads/polishing cloth pads, are attached to the sanding plate in the same manner. Selecting the Sanding Sheet Dependingonthematerialtobeworkedandtherequiredrate of material removal, different sanding sheets are available: For reworking or polishing, especially of metal and stone, use fleece/polishing cloth pad. Depending on the desired surface quality of the workpiece, different fleece types or polishing cloth pads are to be used.

Pad Extender, Narrow (see figure F) With the narrow pad extender 13 you can sand narrow open- ings, slots and passages. Pad Extender, Narrow Rounded (see figure G) The narrow rounded pad extender 14 allows you to sand curved and hollow areas or surfaces that are curved inward, such as on furniture, rails or heating radiators. Operation Starting Operation f Observecorrectmains voltage!Thevoltage of thepow- er source must agree with the voltage specified on the nameplate of the machine. Power tools marked with 230 V can also be operated with 220 V. Switching On and Off Tostartthemachine,tilttheOn/Offswitch 1towardtheright to the “I” position. Toswitchoffthemachine,tilttheOn/Offswitch 1towardthe left to the “0” position. Working Advice f Before any work on the machine itself, pull the mains plug. f Wait until the machine has come to a standstill before placing it down. The removal capacity during sanding is mainly determined by the selection of the sanding sheet. Only flawless sanding sheets achieve good sanding capacity and extend the service life of the machine. Pay attention to apply uniform sanding pressure; this increas- es the working life of the sanding sheets. Intensifiying the sanding pressure does not lead to an in- crease of the sanding capacity, but to increased wear of the machine and the sanding sheet. Forpreciseon-the-spotsandingofedges,cornersandhardto reach areas, it is also possible to work only with the tip or an edge of the sanding plate. A sanding sheet that has been used for metal should not be used for other materials. Use only original Bosch sanding accessories. Maintenance and Service Maintenance and Cleaning f For safe and proper working, always keep the machine and ventilation slots clean.
