From the Manufacturer
The speed dial is on the end of the motor, out of the way, preventing accidental changing of the speed. A handy slide switch prevents hand fatigue when the unit must be run for the extended periods of time that polishing operations require. The random orbit action of the special six-inch polishing pad provides a smooth, swirl-free finish. An included side handle fits either the left or right side for maximum comfort. For more versatility, this tool can be converted to a five-inch random orbit sander with sanding pad no. 13700 (sold separately). One year warranty with a 30-day performance certification. Includes polisher, polishing pad no. 54745, wrench no. 48779, and operator's manual.

Works magic on removing severe swirl mark even rotory machines can't get rid off and also save lots of money on polish/wax compared to applying by hand or rotory machine. However the noise level is kinda loud and not suitable if compounding is needed. I'll like to take this chance to reccomend a very good rotory machine with similiar shape as this one, It's made by the brand RUPES model LH16E. This 2 product is an investment you guys won't regret.

Totally awesome polisher. Lightweight, smooth, and powerful. I have a 30' boat that would typically take all day to wax with a cheap orbital polisher. I can now complete this job in three hours with a much better finish. I use the 7424 to apply wax and the Dewalt polisher to remove and finish the boat. These tools save valuable time and give this boat an incredible finish.

This is a good product! It works well and is light weight. If you're a professional detailer however, you'll find that it lags when working on a finish that needs deep cleaning. Don't throw away your regular polisher because this unit will take much longer to get through a rough detail job than a regular polisher does. This unit is well suited for the average do-it yourselfer and light detail jobs, but you'll still need a regular polisher for brute force cleaning. Okay, that's it!
