  3. Centering the pad: lay down the device in a way that the underside is easily accessible. Now, center the pad on the pad driver and reattach it to the machine by twisting it counter clockwise. (the weight of the device will keep the pad in its current position).
  4. Positioning the handle: place the buffer back into the upright position and loosen the handle using the mechanism right beneath the trigger. Now, center the bring the grip into line with your hips. Finally, tighten the grip when it feels like the weight is equally distributed.
  5. Kicking it off: when you are ready, release the safety mechanism and hold the trigger to run the device.
  6. Controlling its movement: bear in mind that it’s not like a mower machine with moving wheels in any directions. So, you can’t expect to control it in any way you desire. The only proper method to create side-to-side movement is using the grip. In fact, rising the handle will cause the machine to go right and lowering it will do the opposite. Plus, for back and forth motion, you should gently step forward and backward.

4 Tips On How To Maintain A Buffer

  • Always wipe down the scrubber after you’re done using it. Use a soft piece of cloth to get rid of any contaminator left on the device before storing it.
  • Clean the cord and wrap it around the handle in a way that causes no breakage in the future.
  • You must store the device horizontally when the pad driver is still attached to it. Otherwise, the machine will face malfunction in the future. If you insist to store it vertically, just make sure to remove the pad driver before doing so.
