    Rated 3 out of 5 by from 849x is the best on the market deserves a 5 s This Dewalt 849x is very well made, extremely well balanced and smooth to operate, very easy to use. Compared to makita and others Soft start prevents 1st contact burn also scattering polish all over wasting precious pastes saving money and time. fantastic speed adjustability of a roll dial range actual 600 - 3500 RPM's Also the motor has plenty of reserve power for any polish / buffing load. 849x weight is 6.6lbs, Makita 6.8lbs, 9-10721 craftsman TOY 6.5 lbs It is a professional industrial buffer has monster power. Great features. With this said.. Now the unbiased review.. The gear tooth contact has a major depth flaw in the Dewalt 849x model The manufacture failed to set proper tooth depth engagement. And will destroy your gears. My son works in the auto body field and mentioned his gears were wasted in 1 year. The MAC guy charged him $150.00 for the rebuild kit?? Unbelievable! During the re-build. The shop discovered very poor gear lash & backlash also the gears were only contacting the topside. Validating the original gears destruction. I examined my 849x..1st monitored the - + lash tooth play to engagement contact. turning back & forth by hand. Obvious lack of contact. You can actually hear the contact. Next loosened the 4 arbor cap screws pinched with my fingers then slightly backed - off pressure. sure enough the gear contact is majorly deficient. Turning the arbor with my fingers the gears in fact slipped!!! I used a .010 feeler gauge in between the arbor plate & body. The gears did not have contact. After removing the grease I could see the gear contact pattern on the weakest point topside of the teeth. used a compound to monitor gear contact. I filed the main body till perfect center gear contact was achieved. The total material removed was approx .050 - .060 I re-validated this depth using a .078 bit was needed between the main housing & arbor cap to duplicate the same OE case height slippage. The tooth pattern is now flawless!! Just shy of zero - + lash & backlash play I have set up differentials. a grinder has the same exact ring & pinion design principles. Only.. NO way to adjust depth. Except removing main body material. NO structural concern. Removing material from the arbor cap side. Is a very bad idea due to disassembly & the lack of material. I reached out to Dewalt. With my discovery. Pictures and perfected cure. Not 1 reply about their major design flaw.. Not a good sign. For customer support. This 849x is the best on the market deserves a 5 star rating. Unfortunately i gave a rating of 3 this major gear depth flaw needs a recall or Dewalts attention! Attached ring & pinion location reference chart.

    Questions & Answers

    Can you use this as a angle grinder too?

    Asked by: Lex55
    This tool is not intended to be used for a grinder, however, if you can fashion a flapper disk on the arbor it could be used as a grinder.
