Product Description

6-inch Sander/Polisher Works Two Ways

The ever-versatile Craftsman polisher with rear twist handle with a 4.5 amp motor is perfect for most sanding or polishing tasks in any shop. The trigger switch controls the two speeds and can be locked on for extended use. The tool's rear handle rotates 90 degrees left or right, and the side handle can be mounted on top, or on the right or left side to help you tackle a job from any angle. It includes everything you need for most projects: rubber backing pad, wrench, polishing bonnet, spanner nut, auxiliary handle assembly and manual.

The 6-inch sander/polisher with 4.5 amp motor is ready to work as hard as you are! The tool features a spindle lock to make it easy to remove or install the rubber pad or spanner nut, and a live tool indicator glows green to give you an easy-to-check safety feature. Whether you're sanding a rail or polishing a classic car, this tool will help you get it done right in no time.

  • Craftsman polisher with rear twist handle features a 4.5 amp motor to provides power for most all sanding and polishing needs
  • Two speeds (1400 and 1650 RPM). Lower speed is perfect for polishing, and higher speed is for sanding.
  • Rear twist handle rotates 90 degrees with push of button for comfort and control
  • Spindle lock with pin makes it easy to change between bonnets, rubber pad or spanner nuts
  • Auxiliary handle mounts left, right or top for added control and flexibility
  • Ball and sleeve bearing comes permanently lubricated for long service-free life
  • Live tool indicator light glows green to let you know when there's a current running to tool

Sander/Polisher
It does a good job for the intended design. It was a sander/polisher in the title description, I think most folks want a buffer and confuse the two,I use this for sanding rust on cars and it works fine. I worked in a autobody shop and we would use one like this for sanding, Or light paint cleaning ( compound application) then a high speed buffer for the polish..Good luck everyone

No Good! They dont sell other parts for it.

This is a total waste. The bonnet that comes with it is garbage and they dont make the applicator pad or other pads that attach directly to it. This is the biggest waste of money. If you are going to use it for a sander then it should be fine. But if you are going to need it to polish cars dont waste your money. I now have to go buy another one. The threads on the bolt are too small to work with anyone elses pads. Total waste of my money.

Not a good polisher

This unit is a good low end sander. However, I would never recommend this to anyone for a polisher. It is supplied with a low end sheepskin cover to polish with. It is held on with a wing and a prayer. When it slipped I burned the pain on my car with the polishers rubber base. No polisher pad upgrades are offered to prevent this. If you want a serious car polisher I highly suggest using a DA polisher to prevent pain damage. I'm surprised that this thing is still on the market.

Good Polisher

This product would be great if only it had an adjustable rpm dial. Other than this, it seems well-built, and quality is expected.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

great polisher but......

it does not make any sense to put a 1/2 inch stud which there is no backing plate that fits it period. ive looked all over the internet and everything is 5/8 inch. so dumb on craftsman part to do that. i understand why they did it, but get real the buffing bonnets are terrible.at least make a backing plate that fits it! im returning it tom.

Polisher/ Sander

This Polisher / Sander was easy to use and useing the slow speed and compound it removed the oxidization from our boat and brought it back from pink to deep red and did so without the burning thru that usually happens when a novice trys to accomplish this,it may take two to three applications but result was very proffessional ( so I was told but one) and now feel confident to use it on my black car to remove the swirls. The job it did on the boat saved me 450.00 by doing it myself. Great product..

I would recommend this product to a friend.

polisher/sander

Very poor! Did a 3 ft. section and the pad flew off. I bought replacement pads but they tear quickly then you get black rubber marks on your car or boat. Also the the 2 speed trigger is a joke, it works then it doesn't. I don't know what chineese sweat shop this was made in but it is a discrace. I am sorry to see the craftsman name have such a poor product.
