    • A:

      imo this is one of the VS speed (daul speed dill?driver Fuel M12 versions)a HEX version that might be labled as a subcompact two speeddriller. with a resersing option and going off the #2" for the polishing pads and wool on there now you would like to get close to a higher rpm (like 2500 least to a 4000rmp polishing buffing max speed.but the whole time within your control probable once set to gearVS done so by feel and trigger VS sanding application or a material prep as I see it has it uses the 3m Roloc system which us great!for two appliactions in my world but to attach a pad and HNK system on one and have a choice of soft backings, this alone will allow for needed counter the complete roloc or even 3M bristle disces can not do for you with a vertical push(you pushing down from center spindle)I personally would be looking at a very hard yellow condence "pad H&L and from their have aside me quality foam all just judged off hardness.medium to supersoft max 2000rpm MAX but w/ VS down
