Propane Burnisher and
Propane Buffer Operation
Before beginning burnishing or buffing, you must determine
the floor type, the soil’s quantity and type, and,
if spray buffing, the base of the cleaning solution. After
considering these criteria, choose either dry burnishing
or spray buffing. All operators should then familiarize
themselves with the floor machine by reading the manuals
and identifying each component and control as well as each
one’s function. Finally, adhere to the suggested maintenance
schedule or check to see that the schedules have been met.
Preparation for Dry Burnishing and
Remember to never let an untrained person operate a floor
buffing machine. They may injure themselves; they may also
damage the floor, the buffing machine, or both.
Before starting the floor machine’s
engine, all operators should check the oil level to avoid
straining or damaging the engine. Next, install an approved
and properly-filled propane tank. Never alter or change
the propane control equipment. If a tank is over-filled,
vent the propane tank outdoors. Allow the propane to escape.
While escaping from an over-filled tank, propane appears
white. When the escaping mist is clear, the tank has reached
an appropriate level.
With the tank securely in place, open the
propane tank valve counterclockwise. Next, set throttle
control at idle for 12 volts and choke for the electric
start system. Turn the key to the start position and then
move the throttle towards the fast position. Operators should
not push the "Start" button for longer than 10
seconds until the engine starts.
Operation for Floor Machines
When you are finished, follow the instructions found in
and Buffing Machine Maintenance. Proper floor
machine maintenance improves the effectiveness as well as
the life of the floor buffer or burnisher.
WARNING: If problems occur at any point during preparation
and operation, refer to the owner’s manual or contact
an Aztec service representative.
