Safety Notes
General Power Tool Safety Warnings
Read all safety warnings and all in-
and instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or seri-
ous injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mains-
operated(corded) power tool orbattery-operated(cordless)
power tool.
Work area safety
f Keepworkareacleanandwelllit.Clutteredordarkareas
invite accidents.
f Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres,
such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases or
dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust
or fumes.
f Keep children and bystanders away while operating a
power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control.
Electrical safety
f 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 risk of electric shock.
f Avoidbodycontactwithearthedorgroundedsurfaces,
such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is
earthed or grounded.
f Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
f 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 and moving parts. Damaged
or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock.
f When operating a power tool outdoors, use an exten-
sioncord suitablefor outdoor use. Useofa cord suitable
for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
f If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoid-
able, use a residual current device (RCD) protected
supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
Personal safety
f Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common
sensewhen operating apower tool.Do notuse apower
toolwhileyouaretiredor undertheinfluenceofdrugs,
alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while op-
erating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
f Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye
protection. Protective equipment such as dust mask,
non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection
used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal inju-
f 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 en-
ergising power tools that have the switch on invites acci-
f Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning
the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a ro-
tating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
f 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 jewel-
lery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from
moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be
caught in moving parts.
f If devices are provided for the connection of dust ex-
traction and collection facilities, ensure these are con-
nected and properly used. Use of dust collection can re-
duce dust-related hazards.
Power tool use and care
f Donotforcethe powertool.Use thecorrectpower tool
for your application. The correct power tool will do the
job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
f Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it
on and off. Any power tool that cannot be controlled with
the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
f Disconnect the plug from the power source and/or the
battery pack from the power tool before making any
adjustments, changing accessories, or storing power
tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of
starting the power tool accidentally.
f 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.
f Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or bind-
ing of moving parts, breakage of parts and any other
condition thatmay affectthe powertool’s operation.If
damaged, have the power tool repaired before use.
Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power

f Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in ac-
cordance 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.
f Haveyourpowertoolservicedbyaqualifiedrepairper-

Safety Warnings for Sander
f Usethemachineonlyfordrysanding.Penetrationofwa-
ter into the machine increases the riskof an electric shock.
f Caution, fire hazard! Avoid overheating the object be-
ing sanded as well as the sander. Always empty the
dust collector before taking breaks. In unfavourable
conditions, e. g., when sparks emit from sanding metals,
sanding debris in the dust bag, micro filter or paper sack
(or in the filter sack or filter of the vacuum cleaner) can
nish, polyurethane or other chemical materials and when
the sanding debris is hot after long periods of working.
f Secure the workpiece. A workpiece clamped with clamp-
ing devices or in a vice is held more secure than by hand.
Products sold in GB only: Your product is fitted with an
BS 1363/A approved electric plug with internal fuse (ASTA

ised customer service agent. The replacement plug should
have the same fuse rating as the original plug.
The severed plug must be disposed of to avoid a possible
shock hazard and should never be inserted into a mains sock-
et elsewhere.

Dust/Chip Extraction
f Dusts from materials such as lead-containing coatings,
some wood types, minerals and metal can be harmful to
one’s health. Touching or breathing-in the dusts can cause
allergic reactions and/or lead to respiratory infections of
the user or bystanders.
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.
– As far as possible, use a dust extraction system suita-
ble 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)
To empty the dust box 2, pull off the dust box downward.
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).
Hold the dust box 2 firmly, fold the filter element 7 upward
and empty the dust box. Clean the thin plates of the filter ele-
ment 7 with a soft brush.
External Dust Extraction (see figure B)
Mount a vacuum hose 8 onto the extraction outlet 6. Connect
connection of various vacuum cleaners can be found at the
end of these instructions.
The vacuum cleaner must be suitable for the material being
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 3 (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 3 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 3 from any debris by tapping against it in
order to enable optimum adhesion.

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.
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

position “1”.
To switch off the machine, push the On/Off switch 1 upward
to positon “0”.
Working Advice
f Wait until the machine has come to a standstill before
placing it down.
The removal capacity during sandingis 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.
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.
