Powerful 4.5 amp motor provides plenty of power for most sanding and polishing operations. 1400 RPM (revolutions per minute) no load speed is the optimum speed to apply different types of waxes and compounds. This speed is also perfect for the removal and buffing of final coatings. 1650 RPM is great for rust removal and sanding rough wood or metal.Feature Benefits
  • Spindle lock capability simplifies changing paper, pads or bonnets
  • Double reduction spur/bevel gears smoothly and efficiently transfers power
  • Ball and sleeve bearings are permanently lubricated for long service-free life
  • Flanged auxiliary handle mounts to right or left side

A solution to the bonnet problem

For the price, the tool itself works very well. The bonnets are useless like every other reviewer said. You can however, buy hook and loop strips with a sticky backing and place them on the original backing plate and then use foam pads or wool pads that accept hook and loop. This works surprisingly good and is cheaper than buying a hook and loop backing plate that doesn't exist. ;)

The bad thing is it uses the bonnets which are horrible. Ended up manufacturing a bushing so I could adapt a velcro backing plate to it. It now serves it's purpose otherwise it was worthless.

Those benefits were not conditioned on the positive or negative content of the review.
