Safety Information

IMPORTANT!

As a manufacturer of Power Brushes, we design, build and test our Brushes to meet specific applications. As a user, you must observe the safety requirements and warnings published herein or by any other manufacturer of Power Brushes.

You, the operator of the Power Brush, and all persons in the immediate area of Power Brush applications should be familiar with the information contained in the American National Standard B165.1-1979 (ANS B165.1-1979). Copies of this standard can be obtained from the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, Box 930, Dearborn, MI 48128.

The filaments of Power Brushes will fatigue with use and may break off during application. For this reason operators of Power Brushes must observe safety practices that protect themselves and any person in the area exposed to Power Brush Application. NEVER OPERATE POWER BRUSHES WITHOUT WEARING SAFETY GOGGLES. Failure to observe this precaution may result in injury. This warning applies to any personnel in a Brush operating area as well as the personnel operating the Power Brushes.

MSFS (Maximum Safe Free Speed) in RPM (Revolutions per Minute) this specification indicates the maximum recommended revolutions per minute that brush should be operated with no work applied. Effective operating speed should be determined by the application, but should never exceed the MSFS.

USE GOOD JUDGMENT IN YOUR POWER BRUSH APPLICATION.

IMPORTANT! DELIVER THIS INSERT, WITH THE BRUSH TO THE OPERATOR. READ BEFORE MOUNTING THE BRUSH.
