Hi everyone.

Oh yes. You've got me! I'm a Porter-Cable 7424 6-Inch Variable Speed Random-Orbit Polisher user and this is my very first rotary (i was scared to death about trying this on my car) so my review is from an enthusiast point of view.

I like car detailing very much but two years ago i knew nothing about it so i started looking at the internet for answers to questions i didn't have at that time about car care. You can find a lot of information about what polish to use (i prefer menzerna over everything else i now know by the way), what pad to use, what wax to use, how to wash your car, how to polish it and the list simply goes on and on but, when trying to decide about what polisher to use things starts to become fuzzy.

Some people tells you the porter it's the best for the beginner.

Some people tells you can't go without a FLEX XC3401 VRG Orbital Polisher Intro Kit

And almost everybody tells you if you're a Pro, use a rotary!!!

Now my findings:

The hing is tough, the porter it's for almost perfect paint finish that you need to polish or you have too much time to finish. It's just too slow to achieve what you need if your paint finish knows automatic car wash that gives you, a beautiful swirled surface you'll notice some day under the sun. The solution: Try a rotary, but there's a catch. Rotary are told to burn the paint if you don't use it carefully but if you use some very easy to understand techniques, you'll get a beautiful paint finish a LOT faster than the one using the porter.

Everything about this product screams quality, the pads, the bag and of course the unit itself are all very well constructed and designed.

It has the same 5/8" thread size as most angle grinders so you can use it with any of the wide variety of attachments made to fit angle grinders, just get some locking nuts from any grinder. It actually makes many of those attachments much more useful than they are on a standard angle grinder due to its lower speeds and the greater control offered by the loop style handle.

Attach a fine wire brush wheel to easily make brushed metal, or use a spiral sewn cloth wheel with some polishing compound to bring metals to a mirror finish. Use it with a diamond disc for easily slicing through metal or wood. With a set of diamond polishing pads you can polish granite, marble and other natural stones to a high lustre. Attach ordinary microfiber towels or sponges to the hook and loop pad and you can buff or clean just about anything. I have even used it with grinding wheels meant for a bench grinder to sharpen my knives and garden tools.

Of course it is also a great sander and famed in the auto detailing industry as one of the top (if not the best) circular car polishers on the market.

What sets this tool apart from the pack is the fact that it can handle heavy torque loads without slowing down, even at low rpm. I have tried other similar tools (circular polishers and VS angle grinders capable of low speeds) which had no problems handling torque at higher speeds but could not handle much at low rpm without slowing down or wavering. That functionality is crucial to many delicate polishing and grinding applications where you need an even cut without removing too much material.

This thing is very comfortable to use, runs smooth and quiet, does not overheat, and it can stand up to a heck of a lot of abuse. What more could you ask for?

I am a 71 year old woman, and yet I find this product very easy to use. I haven't used the sander feature; mainly the polisher, but it does a great job. I am very pleased with it and would highly recommend Makita products.

I use this makita to buff out my cars. For the past 3 years I was using a dual action polisher, which did a fabulous job. However, it took forever to do one body panel, and if any paint imperfection was deeper than a swirl, it had a difficult time removing it.

The makita is fast, durable, and very well made. Knowing that a rotary can easily ruin your cars finish I went at it very slow to begin with. The variable speed clutch allows you to slowly start spinning the head when you start as opposed to the machine ramping up to 1500 rpm right away. The bale handle makes for easy operation, and the entire unit weighed less than I had initially thought.

Overall, I am very happy with this purchase. The storage bag is top notch as well. I came away very happy with the entire process, from order, to shipping and handling, it all went very smooth.

I'm a professional boat detailer & have used a wide selection of buffers over the years. I had gotten out of the business for many years, and upon returning to it, needed to replace my worn out Black & Decker two speed variable, which had served me well, but its day was over. I had the opportunity to try the Makita 9227C prior to purchasing my own unit, thanks to the generosity of a friend in the same business. I had been considering a Dewault, among a few other buffers at some local stores. I'm so grateful I was able to get my hands on this machine before I made my final decision!

This machine is everything & more I expect from a quality buffer/polisher! It's light weight compared to other similar models, quiet & smooth, very well balanced. It has a speed dial you can adjust while in use. THAT is a great feature in itself! This unit came with a carry bag, two different handles, two wool buffing pads, a hook & loop style backer pad and a few other odds & ends.

The hook & loop design makes changing the pads a snap...back in the day, all my older machines had the center bolt on pads, a real PAIN! to replace I used to frown upon the hook & loop design, being familiar with the old school type machines. I just didn't think that the hook & loop design would work well, that it would cause problems such as the pads not staying on the backer pad, etc., I was SO wrong! After having used my new Makita with the hook & loop design backing pad, I will NEVER go back to the bolt on style backing pad.

The buffer's outer housing is rugged, and, according to the instructions, you can easily replace the armature brushes yourself when they finally wear out. THAT is a big plus as well.
