WARNING! It is the owner’s responsibility to read, understand and comply with the following electrical instructions: You must ensure the risk of electric shock is minimized by the installation of appropriate safety devices. An RCCB (Residual Current Circuit Breaker) should be incorporated in the main distribution board. We also recommend that an RCD (Residual Current Device) is used with all electrical products, particularly portable equipment which is plugged into an electrical supply not protected by an RCCB. You must also read and understand the following instructions concerning electrical safety.

  • The Electricity At Work Act 1989, requires all portable electrical appliances, if used on business premises, to be tested by a qualified electrician, using a Portable Appliance Tester (PAT), at least once a year.
  • The Safety at Work Act 1974, makes owners of electrical appliances responsible for the safe condition of the appliance, and the safety of the appliance operator. If there is any doubt about electrical safety contact a qualified electrician.
  • You must ensure that you:
    • Inspect the charger and cable for wear and damage to ensure items are safe before connecting to the main power supply.
    • If worn or damaged DO NOT use, immediately replace, or contact a qualified electrician.
    • Check cables are always protected against short circuit and overload.
    • Important: Check that the voltage marked on the charger is the same as the power supply to be used.
    • DO NOT pull or carry the charger by the power lead, or pull the plug from the mains socket by the power lead.
    • DO NOT use any other type of charger.
    • DO NOT try to open or disassemble the charger.
    • DO NOT get the charger wet, or use in wet, damp conditions (for indoor use only).


1.3   Battery charger safety instructions.

  • DO NOT use the charger to charge any battery other than that supplied for the polisher. Other types of batteries may explode!
    • All main electrical supply safety features must be followed as described in 1.2.
  • Disconnect the charger from the main power supply when not in use.
  • DO NOT operate the charger if it has been dropped, or has received a sharp knock, or is damaged. Contact an authorized service agent.
  • DO NOT insert foreign objects or material into the hole reserved for the battery.
  • DO NOT force the battery into the charger. The battery will only fit one way to ensure correct polarity alignment.
  • DO NOT immediately charge a second battery. Consecutive charging will overheat the charger. Allow the unit to cool for 15 minutes before charging the next battery.
  • DO NOT attempt to connect two chargers together.
    • Dispose in same manner as battery, see section 1.2.
  • Ensure that Health & Safety, local authority, and general workshop practice and regulations are adhered to when using this equipment.
  • Familiarize yourself with the application, limitations, and potential hazards of the polisher.
  • Disconnect from the main power before changing accessories, servicing, or performing any maintenance.
  • Maintain the polisher in good condition (use an authorized service agent).
  • Replace or repair damaged parts. Use genuine parts only. Unauthorized parts may be dangerous and will invalidate the warranty.
  • A guard or any other part that is damaged must be repaired/replaced before the tool is next used.
  • Use the polisher in a suitable work area and keep the area clean, tidy, and free from unrelated materials. Ensure that there is adequate lighting.
  • Keep the polisher clean for best and safest performance.
  • Before each use check all attachments for condition. If worn or damaged, replace immediately.
  • Ensure that there are no flammable materials near the work area.

The battery pack fitted to this cordless tool is considered to be a consumable item and its ability to accept charge will reduce over time.

We will warranty it against mechanical and electrical defect for a period of one year - this does not cover fair wear and tear.

If the battery is not properly charged before first use, or regularly conditioned, its capacity will diminish. Under these circumstances we will not replace the battery pack even if it is less than one year old.

Note: When need, the battery is shipped in a low charge state. It will take longer to charge the battery initially [about 6 hours and several

subsequent charges may also take a little longer until the battery reaches its optimum performance. For general use, the battery should be charged for 4-5 hours.

  1. To remove the battery pack from the polisher, depress the two side clips on the battery and lift the battery up and off the polisher body.
  2. Do not touch the metal battery terminals.
  3. Lay the battery upside down on a flat surface with the connector stem facing upwards.
  4. The charging unit will push down onto the battery stem one way only. This is to ensure that the positive (+) and negative (-) polarities correspond. Align the ridge on the battery stem with the keyway in the charger unit recess and push the charger unit down over the battery stem. Press firmly on the charger unit to ensure that it makes connection with the terminals at the bottom of the charger recess.
  5. Connect main transformer to the charging unit. Plug the transformer into the main socket and switch on.
  6. The red LED indicator will come on when the battery is inserted showing that power is present and charging has commenced.
  7. Do not charge the battery for more than 6 hours.
  8. After 4-5 hours of charging, disconnect the charging lead from the charging unit and remove the unit from the battery stem.
  9. Switch off and remove the transformer plug from the main. Push the battery into the polisher body until it latches into place.
  10. The polisher is now ready for use.

Note: Do not attempt to recharge a battery immediately after use. In such a case allow the battery to cool for a time before recharging.

WARNING! Ensure that you read, understand, and apply the safety instructions in Section 1.

WARNING! Do not use the polisher with abrasive or rubbing compounds.

WARNING! Excess pressure can cause damage to paintwork and will put the polisher motor under strain. Polishers 

  1. Always store the polisher on its side so that the foam pad does not become compressed and/or distorted.
  2. Remove bonnet when not in use to allow foam pad to dry out.
  3. Clean the bonnet regularly by hand washing with soap and water.
  4. DO NOT immerse the foam pad in water. Washing the bonnet is sufficient.
  5. To remove the foam pad, proceed as follows:
  6. Remove the bonnet.
    1. Insert a rod (cross headed screwdriver or similar) into the hole in the side of the pad mounting.
    2. Rotate the pad until the rod contacts the counter-weight.
  7. Undo the centre bolt using a 14mm socket. The centre bolt has a reversed thread, turn it clockwise to undo it and anti-clockwise to tighten it.

Risk of Hand Arm Vibration Injury

Cordless Polisher 18V, Model No. CP2518.V2 when operated in accordance with these instructions and tested in accordance with BS EQ 22 6.1 3, ISO 8662-1:1988 and BS EN ISO 8662-8:1997 results in the following vibration emission declared in accordance with s

Measured vibration emission value: 6.73m/s

Uncertainty: 2.69m/s

These values are suitable for comparison with emission levels of other tools that have been subject to the same test. This tool may cause hand-arm vibration syndrome if its use is inadequately managed.

This is a ‘NO LOAD’ vibration figure

A competent person should carry out a risk assessment following HSE guidelines.

Measurement results can be highly variable, depending on many factors, including the operator’s technique, the condition of the work equipment, the material being processed, and the measurement method.

We recommend appropriate safety equipment is utilized and regular breaks for the operator are employed to reduce any residual risk of fatigue or repetitive strain injury.
