The DeWalt DWP849X variable-speed rotary polisher is a lighter, more powerful polisher designed to restore automotive paint with more comfort and control. The DeWalt DWP849X has a controlled finishing system with a soft start to ensure high-finish quality. Use it for car detailing and restoration when an orbital polisher just won’t do the job. The DWP849X has improved ergonomics and better control, a more powerful motor, and it’s also lighter. It comes standard with a hook and loop backing plate, standard side handle and a unique three-position bale handle.
The variable speed dial delivers zero to 600 and zero to 3,500 rpm, giving users the power and speed necessary for challenging applications. The DWP849X weighs only 6.5 pounds, and houses a 12-amp motor! The old DW849 contains an 8-amp motor. The DWP849X includes the controlled finishing system (CFS) with soft start to give users improved speed control and finishing quality. The ergonomic two-finger trigger helps reduce user fatigue by accommodating a range of various finger positions for professionals using the tool over a long period of time. As a special introductory bonus, we’re tossing in a pair of DeWalt gloves and a wool-compounding pad.
