HAZARD INTENSITY LEVEL

The following symbols are used throughout this guide as indicated in their descriptions:

HAZARD INTENSITY LEVEL

There are three levels of hazard intensity identified by signal words -WARNING and CAUTION and FOR SAFETY . The level of hazard intensity is determined by the following definitions:

!

WARNING - Hazards or unsafe practices which COULD result in severe personal injury or death.

!

CAUTION - Hazards or unsafe practices which could result in minor personal injury or product or property damage.

FOR SAFETY: To identify actions which must be followed for safe operation or equipment.

Report machine damage or faulty operation immediately. Do not use the machine if it is not in proper operating condition. Following is information that signals some potentially dangerous conditions to the operator or the equipment. Read this information carefully. Know when these conditions can exist. Locate all safety devices on the machine. Please take the necessary steps to train the machine operating personnel.

FOR SAFETY

DO NOT OPERATE MACHINE:

Unless Trained and Authorized.

Unless Operation Guide is Read and understood.

In Flammable or Explosive areas.

In areas with possible falling objects.

WHEN SERVICING MACHINE:

Avoid moving parts. Do not wear loose clothing; jackets, shirts, or sleeves when working on the machine. Use Windsor approved replacement parts.

!

Fuel cylinders emit propane gas. Explosion or fire can result. Keep sparks and open flame away. Do not smoke around fuel cylinders.

!

Remove fuel cylinder before working on machine. Only qualified personnel should work on machine. Always wear eye protection and protective clothing when working on machine.

Your machine is shipped ready for your operation, with exception of fuel cylinder. For hazard and safety issues, the cylinders are sent with no fuel. Prior to operation have your cylinder filled at a reputable propane dealer.

!

The fuel cylinder supplied with this machine is a DOT 4E240 propane cylinder. Cylinders not branded with DOT 4E240 on the top collar should not be used. Never use a cylinder from a barbecue, etc. on this machine.

The capacity of the 4E240 cylinder is 20lbs., 80% of the total water capacity. Never overfill the cylinder.

BEFORE OPERATING THE MACHINE:

1.Check fuel cylinders: Check for overfill before taking them into the building.

To check a cylinder for overfill:

a.Take it to a safe area outside.

b.Open the fixed liquid level gauge. (bleeder valve)

c.Observe the gas from the valve:

1.If White cloud – Overfilled

2.If Clear vapor – Safe

d.If overfilled, allow to vent until vapor is Clear in color.

2.Check Oil level: Check level prior to starting engine and daily before using machine. Use specified oil if necessary to add. DO NOT OVER FILL OIL LEVEL, to do so may cause damage to the engine, thus voiding warranty.

When checking oil refer to the specific engine manufacturers instruction manual, as some engines differ in correct procedure.

Use 10W30 oil.

3.Check Air Filter: Be sure the carburetor air filter is free of dust/oil, etc. NOTE: Dirty filters is the most frequent cause of elevated toxic emissions. Check and clean recoil dust filter if necessary. (see specific engine owners manual)

4.Check Pad & Pad Driver.

5.Adjust handle height: Use a 9/16 wrench to loosen and tighten pivot points. Most find it necessary to adjust the handle to “belt height” for optimum control.

6.Install Fuel Cylinder: Take machine to a well ventilated area. Check cylinder for overfill. (see step 1) Install cylinder on machine with tank strap. Connect the fuel cylinder to the machine using “Rego” connection. Tighten “hand-tight”.

NOTE: Careful not to cross thread the Rego connection. Open the service valve slowly. Be alert for propane leaks. To remove cylinder reverse the procedure.

MACHINE OPERATIONS

STARTING PROCEDURES

Burnisher:

1.Tilt machine back on rear casters so pad is off the floor.

2.Slowly open the service valve on the fuel cylinder. NOTE: opening the service valve too quickly may cause the excess flow valve to stop the flow of propane. If this occurs, close the service valve, wait a few seconds and re-open it SLOWLY!

3.Push the throttle lever to the choke position and engage the starter by using the start button. (NOTE: If equipped with key switch, start by turning the key) Do not engage starter for more than 20 seconds at a time, allow 10-20 seconds between attempts to start the engine.

4.When engine starts, ease the throttle back to running position.

!

DO NOT run engine with throttle in the choke position. Excessive harmful emissions will be produced putting you and others in harms way.

5.Increase throttle to about ¾ and carefully lower the machine pad to the floor while walking forward slowly.

Optional: Electric Clutch

If equipped with and optional clutch, move throttle to slow and engage the clutch by squeezing the “trigger switch” on the operation handle. Move the throttle to ¾ speed, slowly lower pad to the floor while walking forward slowly.

MACHINE OPERATIONS

STARTING PROCEDURES

Stripper:

!

This machine is only as fast as you allow it to be. It is imperative that you keep the floor wet with stripping solution while stripping and remove the sludge quickly and completely. Rinsing thoroughly before re-coating with sealer or floor finish.

1.Clear all areas of all displays. Remove any dust and stickers from floor.

2.Prepare stripping solution according to instructions on label.

3.Apply solution to the floor using a mop or other method of application. KEEP FLOOR WET WITH SOLUTION.

4.Allow 10 minutes or so for solution to penetrate floor coating.

5.Using a “doodle bug” scrape the edges clear of floor finish.

6.Begin stripping with the machine. (one pass is generally all that is needed).

7.Follow the machine with recovery of sludge and damp mop. NOTE: rinse floor thoroughly.

Keep both models moving. Running the machine in one place for more than a few seconds may damage the floor.

!

Exhaust emissions contain harmful toxic gases. The worst being carbon monoxide. Do not operate the machine in confined areas for prolonged times. Always make certain that adequate ventilation is had.

!

Never engage clutch in the fast run position or with the pad on the floor, this may cause damage to the clutch and the floor.

!

Be careful not to allow the machine to come in contact with loose tiles or other obstruction on the floor. The pad is turning at approximately 2000 RPM. If loose objects are hit by revolving pad they could become dangerous missiles.

EMERGENCY STOPPING PROCEDURE

In case of an emergency, the machine can be brought to an instant stop by:

1.Pull the throttle back to stop position or turn key switch to OFF, if equipped.

2.Close service valve on the fuel cylinder.

3.If the machine is equipped with a “Kill Switch”, activate the switch.

!

The engine may backfire when stopped in this manner.

STOPPING PROCEDURE

1.Close the service valve on the fuel cylinder while the engine is running. This serves to “purge” the fuel system of all flammable gas.

2.Tilt the machine back on it’s rear caster and allow the engine to run until it stops.

3.Turn the key switch OFF if equipped.

Do not leave the machine unattended while the engine is running for long periods of time. If necessary to leave the machine for short periods to move a display etc. move the throttle lever to idle position and tip machine back on the rear caster.

It has been the accepted practice to start buffing from the right side of the aisles. Most smaller machines are offset to the right to allow buffing close on that side.

TRANSPORTING/STORING MACHINE

When transporting the machine from one site to another, secure the machine with the fuel cylinder installed and the service valve OFF. Allow the engine to cool down some before loading the machine for transport.

When storing the machine, remove the propane cylinder and store outside. (see pg. 3-3 for Storage of Fuel Cylinders) Perform all daily maintenance procedures. Store machine in a cool, dry, secure area where it will not be damaged by other traffic. Tilt the machine back on the rear caster with the pad off of the floor.
