DEWALT announces the launch of its two new 7-inch/9-inch Variable Speed Polishers (DWP849X and DWP849). Their new designs are lighter than their predecessor and deliver the power and speed control necessary for use on a variety of materials, ranging from cars and boats to metal and concrete surfaces. The products are ideal for metal fabricators and finishers. The products feature a powerful 12 amp motor and a variable speed dial that delivers 0-600/0-3,500 RPM, giving users the power and speed they need for tough applications. In addition to the speed dial, the variable speed trigger allows users to further control the speed from zero to the specified maximum setting (600 to 3,500 RPM). The DWP849X offers several additional upgrades to the DWP849 that result in greater control, comfort and durability. It includes the (CFS) Controlled Finishing System with soft start to give users improved speed control and finish quality. In addition to the traditional straight side handle, it comes with a three-position bale handle for multiple gripping options. Both speed polishers will be priced competitively, and they will be available through independent construction distributors, as well as online, in May 2011. Both tools will come standard with a three-year limited warranty, one-year free service contract and 90-day money-back guarantee. For more information visit www.dewalt.com.
