Impressive Power – It packs a 10-AMP motor that delivers 0-3000 RPM, enabling fast and powerful polishing.
Superior Control – The grinder features variable speed control with a pre-set maximum speed dial. It also boasts a soft start, which means less mess — less flinging off of polish, wax, or paste. The brushes are externally accessible for ease-of-use, while the lock-on button is perfect for continuous use.
Safety – The 3-prong plug prevents static electricity from accumulating and causing a hazard.
Efficient Handiwork – Because of the electronic speed control, it can maintain constant speed, no matter the load. The gear housing also minimizes the chances of damaging delicate surfaces. The model has wire mesh intake covers that prevent wool fibers from damaging the motor. The rubber tool rest enables upside-down placement when it’s used with the side handle.
Divers Applications – Since it has easy speed controls, you can match the speed to the needs of the specific application. You can easily convert it to a sander, for instance. The improved cord guard increases flexibility.
- Operator Comfort – The modal features a rubberized loop handle and gear housing to make it comfortable for the operator.
