Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dewalt buffer delivers productivity 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. April 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great polisher with one issue this tool performed flawlessly. the 2nd one that is. the first one i ordered from home depot arrived and the backing pad did not have the proper threads to fit the polisher. i tested both with some nuts and bolts and the polisher was correct at 5/8-11 but the backing pad was 1/2-13. i returned it to our local home depot and reordered a new one from their site, which works perfectly October 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great buffer Great product! Like the speed dial rather than numbers. soft start works like a charm for picking up a bead. August 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good purchase The polisher Works great, it has a sottstart feature, and also it can keep a constant speed without load or under load... Sincé it has a hook & loop pad, It's kind of difficult to center the buffing pad... You'll see that the polisher kind of jumps when polishing at moderate speeds and higher.... September 23, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Dewalt DWP849X is poorly advertised and is an incomplete tool as sold. This product is stated as a 7 in. and 9 in. polisher, but does not have any 9 in. pad. Dewalt does not offer a hook and loop polishing bonnet to go with the 7 1/2" hook and loop pad provided. I bought your bonnets, and that required me to buy an additional 7 1/2" rubber pad (dw4990). Your bonnet do not work with the hook and loop pad provided. If I want to use a 9" bonnet, I will have to purchase more accessories. The only hook and loop bonnet that might work is provided by Makita. April 29, 2014
