Compared to the previous DeWalt 849 polisher, the DWP849X has improved ergonomics and control, a more powerful motor, and it is also lighter. The variable speed dial delivers 0-600/0-3,500 RPM, giving users the power and speed necessary for chalenging 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 (CFS) Controlled Finishing System with soft start to give users improved speed control and finishing quality. In addition to the more common straight side handle, the DWP849X comes with a three-position bale handle for multiple gripping options. It also offers an ergonomically sculpted rear handle with rubber overmold, as well as a non-marring rubber gear case cover which helps to reduce the chance of finish scuffs or scratches.
The ergonomic two-finger trigger helps to reduce user fatigue by accommodating a range of finger positions for professionals using the tool over an extended period of time. All of these features mentioned above provide improved comfort and speed control compared to traditional polishers.
The hook and loop backing pad, which is included standard with the DWP849X, allows for quick, tool-free accessory changes. Foam and wool pads with hook and loop fasteners can be used. The 3M Quick Release Adapter is also compatible with the machine and allows the use of double-sided pads.
Contributing to the durability of the DWP849X are the wool ingestion shields covering the air intake. These shields help to eliminate wool and debris ingestion, increasing the life of the buffer.
The DeWalt DWP849X 7"/9" Variable Speed Rotary Polisher is built for professionals, such as auto detailers, paint technicians, body shop professionals and finishers. The variable speeds range from 600 to 3500 rpm and can be used for slow, fine polishing and for high speed severe paint correction.
The DWP849X is ruggedly built. All ball bearing construction and heat-treated, precision-cut steel gears ensure smooth operation and long life. Use the DeWalt DWP849X Variable Speed Rotary Polisher for all your demanding compounding and polishing needs. Its rugged durability and controlled variable speeds enable precise operation and excellent results.
