    Comments about 7 in. / 9 in. Variable Speed Polisher with Soft Start:

    Product was purchased to buff out recently epoxied clawfoot bathtub.
    Has plenty of power (12 amps), unable to bog it down with wool buffer and Meguirs rubbing compound
    Speed control is useful to help balance buffing tasks
    Tool feels well balanced and light enough to run all day
    Don't forget to buy the optional wool buffer if you plan on using it right away
    Normally I'd buy Milwaukee but this tool has potentially useful features such as a wool filter
    Cord is rubber and reasonably heavy
    The brushes look acccessible should the need come to replace them
    I gave it 5 stars as so far it does what its advertised to do and I don't think you'd be wrong in buying it

      will a 7in buffing pad fit a 7 to 9in backing pad?

        You can use a 7" buffing pad with the polisher. According to the manufacturer, this is hook and loop and it will fit.

        No, this product is a polisher used for polishing cars and other vehicles. It is not a construction sander.
