Great polished!
small, quiet, easy to use, gets into tight places and curved surfaces. The only down side is battery run time........about 20 minutes max. before charging........30 minutes with the larger battery. If it had longer run time I would have given it 5 stars!

Versatile Tool
This little guy is amazing! It easily replaces my air die grinder while being more versatile. This is perfect for cleaning lenses on cars,trucks and even windshields for ATVs and Snowmobiles. The guy above, that kind find consumables obviously doesn't know how to use the internet.

I use this with Roloc abrasive discs and sanding discs for cleaning aluminum and steel prior to welding. It has tons of torque even on the high speed setting. With agressive use it runs through the standard batteries fairly quick so best to get the high cap types.

This little polisher is super handy. I use it with abrasives for sanding and compounds for polishing; everything from headlight lens refinishing to gasket removal... This thing ROCKS! Uses the same 12v battery as the rest of my Milwaukee cordless tools. Yes, it's small, but don't let that fool you... It punches above its weight!

Great little buffer
Great little buffer to use in all the tight area's that you are unable to get larger buffer into. The larger battery lasts a lot longer than I figured it would.
