I purchased this Dewalt DWP849X Variable Speed Polisher with Soft Start last month for two jobs.
First, I needed a 7 in, grinder to remove excess concrete on our patio slab for proper drainage. Standard grinders don't have soft start or variable speed which I needed for greater control of the $100 diamond grinding wheel. The DWP849X soft start, variable RPM, power and internal electronics to HOLD that RPM under load were invaluable and impressive.
The unit sustained several days of grinding and sanding with the vibrations, dust, and heat generated from the heavy work loads. I covered the lint screen air intakes with a cotton cloth to filter some of the dust that wasn't blown away by my fans. It was the perfect grinder for the job. Afterwards, I cleaned the unit with compressed air, and she looks, starts, stops, and operates like new. Very tight and rugged unit.
The primary purpose for the unit will be to clean, polish and buff our 26 gel-coat boat. I have no doubts that it will handle that duty with ease. The rubber head cover is a big plus and the large rounded head handle makes all the difference in control and user comfort. A great buy!!

The Dewalt buffer certainly held up to its description. Meeting all expectations and completion the job with no issues made my week. The Dewalt buffer was used for 3 days straight and preformed well during every hour of operation.

I especially like the speed control, set it and just pull the trigger, and it holds the speed for you.

Polisher is much quieter than what I expected from the other reviews. Great trigger, everything works as expected. I believe this product will last a long time seems to be built well

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kyle converted it to a wet grinder
This grinder is awesome, you can run it hard for hours and it never even get hot. Makitas version of this ismt rated for quite as many amps and just cant take the heat.. I let the smoke out of one right before i bought the dewalt. The cord is two feet longer than makitas and a heavier gauge right where it goes into the handle the sleeve is thicker and doesnt delaminate quite like the makita did and i like the filters on the vents that kept all the material out of the motor. I would definately buy it again given the choice between this and any other grinder
