Dremel recently sent me their 4volt Versa Power Cleaning Tool to test out. I got to try one of these at the #thdprospective event in NYC this April but it was in a controlled environment, so now that I have one I can put it to my own test.
Upon opening the package I noticed that there were 4 different cleaning discs that came with the tool. Each went from smooth to more rough, so you can really deep clean or just use this to polish a surface.
The nice thing about this tool is that it's battery-operated, rather than needing to plug it in with a cord. However to charge the tool, you do have to plug it into the wall, there are not battery packs that can be swapped out.
The Versa comes with a dust cover to help keep dust and particulate down as you're using the tool. It comes with a manual that explains the use of each pad, and how to properly use the tool. The package comes with the following:
- 4VMax Dremel Power Cleaner Tool,
- (1) PC361 Power Cleaner Heavy-Duty Pad,
- (1) PC362 Power Cleaner Eraser Pad,
- (1) PC363 Power Cleaner Non-Scratch Pad,
- (1) PC364 Power Cleaner Bristle Brush,
- Backing Pad,
- Splash Guard,
The tool is extremely easy to assemble and figure out how to use. The pads all change out easily as they are Velcro-backed to adhere to the Velcro disc attached to the spindle of the tool. As an electrician I can't see myself using this tool for much, but having it at the house to clean surfaces is perfect. We can never get the grease off the top of our oven with traditional scrubbing pads, but putting this thing to work with the bristle brush and the heavy duty pad did the trick with ease. Just add a little degreasing agent and let it sit for awhile, and crank this baby on.
The downside of this tool is that it is not very powerful. I'm used to the power of a hand-held sander and this is far less powerful than that. Its a completely different use, sure, but just so you can get some perspective on what kind of power this has...it's only 4 volts. You're not going to be taking paint off a fence with this thing. It's great for jobs that you'd otherwise have to sit and do by hand, over and over.
I give this tool 4 stars. For its use, its well designed. It seems a bit on the "diy quality" side in my opinion, not the "professional grade" quality side. That being said, it is a good tool for what it is designed for, but I do think that a stronger battery setup and a little bit larger motor would make this thing appeal to a more professional audience.
