Questions & Answers

Could I use this with brass polish to polish brass?

Asked by: Chris
Yes. Since it is a variable speed polisher, with the right bonnet you can. It works best when used on large flat surfaces.

I did not see the weight in the discrepsion.

Asked by: crs
I dont know the exact weight but I can buff out and polish 3 cars/trucks/SUV in a day. No cramping a little sore from the work out but to be expected. I thinking around 3-5lbs
Answered by: StyronElectric

What type of gripping devise does the polisher have? Is the center for attaching the pad to the polisher a velcro attachment center or screw center?

Most pads attachments to polishers are even attached by a Velcro attachment but my last DEWALT polisher had a bolt on attachment for tightening the pad to the polisher. Does that help?
Asked by: Matchewman1385
Comes with a Center screw backing pad with Velcro attachment for pads.

This backing plate can be use for a 8 in pad or need to be replace for 9/8 in pads?

Asked by: Roro
You can use both. I use the smaller ones for tight spots and around the railing on my boat.

12 Amp 7 in./9 in. Variable Speed Polisher with Soft Start is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 91.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality, Tough Construction 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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome machine I did my first ever wet-sand and polish on a freshly painted restored vehicle and this machine is so stable and comfortable to use. The soft start feature and control you have with it is awesome. The only one thing I wish it had would be detachable cord as I hate storing tools with the cord kinked up near the machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best polisher This polisher is rated #1 because it is the best. It has a great balance, smoothness and the speed regulation is perfect under load.
