In the product overview it says this "•Includes: (1) M12 variable speed polisher/sander (2438-20), (1) 5 PC accessory pack: (1) 3 in. polishing backing pad; (1) 2 in. sanding backing pad; (1) wool pad; (1) yellow foam pad; (1) white foam pad, (1) side handle, (1) carrying case" is this true? I know this is a bare tool only so if it don't come with everything the product overview states, then Home Depot needs to fix that.i would be mad if I ordered it and it didn't come with everything home depot stated
Asked by: guest
yes it does come with all that. "Bare Tool" is a standard term for cordless tools which specifically means it does not come with a battery.

Can I use this as a drill?

For instance, is there a way to attach a chuck to this? I have a random orbital attachment from Meguiar’s that connects to drills. The attachment is a circular rod. Will that work?

M12 12-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Variable Speed Polisher/Sander (Tool-Only) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I recently used the Milwaukee M12 Cordless Variable Speed Polisher/Sander... I recently used the Milwaukee M12 Cordless Variable Speed Polisher/Sander to buff out and polish the "fogged" acrylic headlight lenses on 3 vehicles. This involved 4-5 passes with 800, 1500 and 2000 grit sandpaper and water, and 6-8 passes with a polishing pad and rubbing compound. The tool felt comfortable in my hand, and it was easy to control the speed and position, with and without the optional handle. As for battery life, the 1st vehicle took me about 1 1/2 hours using an XC 4.0 A/hr battery. It still had 2 lights on the charge indicator upon completion. I switched to an XC6.0 A/hr battery for the 2nd and 3rd vehicles and completed both (4 headlights) in just over 2 hours. The charge indicator at 3 lights until just after starting the polishing passes.
