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.
Love this item. It works so good.
My dad, my husband and my brother-in-law all have this buffer and all 3 love it!
Bought this early in 2016 and it works flawlessly. i replaced my old 20 year old Craftsman buffer with this one and have no doubt that this will also serve me well for years to com. I use this to polish 4 cars and a boat.
This polisher is excellent, works way better than the cheap one i used to have. Our is comfortable at any angle you use it and it is also very effective at its job. I like the storage wash bucket out came with, great for washing them storing after you polish.
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.
