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!
I normally don't submit reviews but this thing is so bad, I feel shoppers should be warned to stay away from this one. I put wax on 1/4 of the hood on my Trailblazer by hand and used the polisher to remove and buff but it couldn't get the wax off so there was no buffing. I thought maybe the brand of wax (Turtle) was the issue so I got out the Meguiar's, reserved for my Corvette, and it wouldn't buff that wax off either. I used the 3 terry cloth bonnets to try and get the Turtle wax off and had to resort to good old fashioned do-it-by-hand for the entire car. The unit seemed to have plenty of power but the included bonnets just wouldn't take up the wax. Another big drawback is the power plug-in; my extension cord would fall out from the vibration until I taped the connection together. The unit also vibrated often which seemed to interfere with performance. I took this unit back and when asked why by the clerk, told 'em it was a piece of junk. Bottom line - DON'T buy.
This buffer is completely awesome and gets the job done beautifully!
Terrific buffer. love it. i wax my car in 30 minutes and don't even break a sweat!!!
