CYCLO DUAL HEAD ORBITAL POLISHER

Getting Started:
Your Cyclo Polisher has two heads rather than the single head you may be accustomed to seeing. As soon as the Cyclo Polisher is placed on a working surface, and switched on, orbital “hand-rubbing” action takes place. Therein lies the secret of its ability to do many different types of jobs that could not be done with a single head or rotary tools. The two heads move in a circular, overlapping motion and are counterweighted to balance. Thus, very little centrifugal force is exerted and the vibration, heat and throwing/ pulling action of a rotary tool is eliminated.
  1. Determine the attachment system configuration that you intend to use – heads with Rubber Pad Holders, scrub brushes, DoublePrecision 2-sided pads, or other Genuine Cyclo Accessories. We have provided a list of the various attachment systems below.
  2. Configure the polisher. We have provided instructions to assist you in the configuration of your polisher below.
Attaching Rubber Pad Holders and Bonnets:
  1. Lay the polisher with heads facing up on a bench or flat surface. You can use the insert from inside the polisher box to support polisher/hold it in place or use towels.
  2. Take pad holder or bonnet and turn inside out.
  3. Center the inside-out pad holder or bonnet onto the head assembly.
  4. Flip pad holder or bonnet over the head assembly using your thumbs to stretch the rubber holder over the head.
  5. Rotate pad and stretch the other half of the pad holder or bonnet over the head assembly.
  6. Use your thumbs to center the pad holder or bonnet over the head for an even fit.
  7. Complete for both head assemblies.

Head Assembly Removal and Attaching Quick Connect Adapters for DoublePrecision™ Pads:
  1. Lay the polisher with heads facing up on a bench or flat surface. You can use the insert from inside the polisher box to support polisher/hold it in place or use towels.
  2. Attach the flat wrench to the nut attached to the counterweight beneath the pad holder.
  3. Hold the wrench on the counterweight nut with your left hand and turning the pad holder counter-clockwise until you can completely remove the head assembly with your right hand.
  4. Leave the flat wrench attached to the counterweight nut. You will now take the Quick Connect adapter (part 79-725 5/16) and screw the adapter into the counterweight nut where the head assembly was previously located. Turn clockwise.
  5. Use the flat wrench to hold the counterweight in place and once you have the Quick Connect adapter attached we recommend that you connect a DoublePrecision pad to the end of the Quick Connect adapter while the wrench is still attached to the counterweight for a final snug fit. Do not over tighten but use a firm grip and hand tighten.
  6. To attach DoublePrecision pads simply line-up the center of DoublePrecision pad with the Quick Connect adapter then press firmly until you can feel the snap of the adapter accepting the pad. Pull on pad to ensure correct attachment.
  7. Complete the removal and installation procedure for both head assemblies.

  3. Hold the wrench on the counterweight nut with your left hand and turning the pad holder counter-clockwise until you can completely remove the head assembly with your right hand.
  4. Leave the flat wrench attached to the counterweight nut. You will now take the first brush and screw it into the counterweight nut where the head assembly was previously located, turning clockwise.
  5. Use the flat wrench to hold the counterweight in place and do not over tighten but use a firm grip for a hand tightening.
  6. Complete the removal and installation procedure for both head assemblies.

Configuring the VES™ Counterweight:
Your polishers will have the new VES counterweight system with no VES weighted insert installed. You will need to install the appropriate weighted insert then install whichever attachment you will be using -- Heads with Rubber Pad Holders, Brushes, DoublePrecision Adapters, or other attachment.
  1. Lay the polisher with heads facing up on a bench or flat surface. You can use the cardboard insert from inside of the polisher box to support polisher/hold it in place.
  2. Determine the attachment system configuration that you intend to use – head assemblies with rubber pad holders or bonnets, carpet and scrub brushes, quick connect adapters with DoublePrecision™ pads, or other Genuine Cyclo attachments.
  3. Select the appropriate VES weighted insert from the “TABLE 1: ADJUSTABLE COUNTERWEIGHT APPLICATION TABLE” below.
  4. Thread the weighted insert into the counterweight and hand tighten using a 7/32” hex wrench (included).
  5. IMPORTANT! Tighten VES weighted insert firmly by attaching the 5/8” flat wrench to the counterweight’s threaded nut style adapter and turn counterclockwise until you make contact with the 7/32” hex wrench. Use the 5/8" flat wrench pivoting on hex wrench to prevent counterweight from turning while tightening the weighted insert. See photos below. Turn the 7/32" hex wrench clockwise to tighten VES weighted insert firmly, but not too tight.
  6. Configuration complete. You may now install the attachment system you have chosen. Instructions for installation are included in your instruction manual.

Why Low Vibration Is Important:

It has been proven that operators face significant risk of muscle, joint and nerve damage caused by the inherent vibration of power tools. By reducing the amount of vibration you can reduce muscle and joint fatigue as well as the potential risk for permanent damage, as described in ISO 5349-1:2001.
