I can't believe I detailed without this thing!!!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: PORTER-CABLE 7424XP 6-Inch Variable-Speed Polisher (Tools & Home Improvement)
This what I am going to call an orbital buffer is fantastic. I can't believe I detailed without this thing before. I got this for detail in my body shop for exterior details and am very happy with the performance. Gone are the swirl marks from inexperience using buffers. Normally when setting up an entry detailer I could not trust them with a buffer for some time in fears of swirl marks and burn through on the customers paint but not with this thing. It does vibrate something ferociously when at high speeds but its an orbital and is to be expected.
It will never replace an actual buffer for the purpose of getting rid of serious scratches but light scratches are nothing for this tool. In fact if you listen closely you can hear it laughing at them. LOL Just kidding.
Very very easy to use
Easy to hold on to
Kind of loud
Doesnt come with adapter plate
Using it for a long time will numb your arms and hands
I was going to buy a lower priced unit but I am glad I went with the Porter Cable

Unit is heavier than I expected. Does not come with a spindle lock so you have to carry around a wrench if you want to change wheels. Bummer. Other than that it is a nice unit.
