I just picked up a cordless drill and will trying this over the weekend.

    Tool is more than users could expect from a drill attachment. I was very surprised of how well it worked with my cordless drill to tackle small defects.
    Tremendous power transfer that gets the pad really working on the surface. Trigger response is accurate to ensure control at all times.
    Applying wax is very easy with the DA Power System (and has a high fun factor also).

    How hard were you pressing down for defect removal?

    I would estimate 4 to 7 pounds in occasions, since is a forced rotation device
    you dont want to apply a lot of pressure primarily because is not needed
    to exceed the pressure to be worked on the surface thanks to the efficiency of the planetary gears of the device, in addition
    excess pressure will compromise the control of the pass with the DA Power System.

    Looking forward to using it on defects... will be great if it doesnt even take much pressure to accomplish that.

    Re: DA Power System

    Just an FYI - I did a little test over the weekend with an 18v cordless drill and easily waxed my entire car on a single charge. I used NXT Tech Wax 2.0 paste and a black finishing pad. It spread quickly, very thin and even, and it took almost no effort. With a powerful cordless drill I'm sure you could easily to some small spot correction, but the extra pressure required for defect removal, and the extra time involved in doing so over a given area, would most likely drain the battery long before you could finish the entire vehicle. Stick with a corded drill for full vehicle correction, no doubt about it. But if you like paste waxes, this is super convenient for machine applying them with ease.

    That's the exact why I'm going to buy this tool. I seriously cannot wait.

    for spot correction; is better to set the drill at a low speed and work the compound as you would with a DA polisher.
    Small spot and a few passes...




    work the compound and inspect the surface as you go...





    finish with your favorite wax....

    Re: DA Power System

    So Mike, when will this be available for purchase? I assume it's not out yet because most sites I check out show it as "out of stock" or estimate shipping by the end of January 2013. I really really want one but I need it now. I am a man without a buffer. Help! LOL Can't wait to get my paws on it. Also do you know if there will be an all-in-one super saver pack (DA Power System + Compound Kit + Polish Kit + Wax Kit), and if so how much? Thanks
