I bought this on sale a couple of months ago and have had a couple of opportunities to use it. I used it first on my 1972 El Camino and it sure did take a lot less time and effort to polish it up over doing it all by hand!
I then used it on my 2009 F-150, a truck I hated to wax but now don't mind it a bit!
I like the way the handle is set making this polisher quite easy to use at all different angles. It has enough power to do the jobs I want it to do around the home. I even used it on my new air compressor and now it shines like crazy and didn't wear me out doing it!
For the money this one is hard to beat!
The design of the polisher may be consistent with today's style. However, it still seems bulky and the terrycloth bonnets that are included and the wool polishing bonnet and of such cheap quality. Not only that, but you have to fight to get them on the wheel. They are stretched so tight I believe it interferes with the quality of the finish. I used it for about 3 swipes across the tailgate of my truck and stopped, packed it up. I won't use it again. I will give it to someone. The time to return has run out. I also believe the polish bonnet should be microfiber, not terry. Much, much better job taking polish off without swirls. You had a very good 9 in buffer. I had one and the only reason I got rid of it was the foam pad fell apart. It was about time though. It was about 10 yrs old. The pads fit too.
This buffer is excellent! The wrap around handle makes it easy to hold in nearly all positions. Whether you are right or left handed you will find this device easy to use. The buffer is quiet and powerful with relatively low weight design for a 10" buffer. The device comes with several applicator and polishing pads, and a bucket storage case that could be used as a nice wash bucket or for secure storage of the buffer.
use this to buffer wood that I have finished and waxed works great have not use it on car so don't no how will it work for that but thank it well do a good job
Bogs down too easily...under powered.
I bought a Sears buffer several years ago and used little. It has set awhile. I decide to use it again and it did not work. Open it up to check the brushes and the were fine. Further inspection indicated the armature had open winding so it trash. It was ok when it worked but had a lot of vibration. Sears quality has plumited over the years.
Like it so far. Does a real good job, makes waxing your car a lot easier. A friend of mine had one, let me use it and then bought one for myself.
Purchased as a gift for my dad. He's already used it and loves it. Great price. Comes in a nice container with pads.
I bought a new truck, the first thing is made sure you wax the roof. the cord is to short, would be better if it was 4'' or 5'' longer. Also I wish it was American made. "But" work really well.
