Everythng You Need
This Porter Cable 7424XP Complete Detailing Kit includes everything you need to get started using a Porter Cable. The Porter Cable 7424XP is a professional tool guaranteed to bring out the very best finish. It operates electronic variable speed between 2,500 - 6,800 OPM (Oscillations Per Minute). Porter cable has upgraded the 7424XP by upgrading it to a more durable power switch. A newer, more ergonomic design makes this polisher easier to hold and use while making it more comfortable which gives you more control over the tool.

How Does the Porter Cable 7424XP Work?
The Porter Cable 7424XP operates by orbiting the polishing pad around a center spindle while the pad freely spins on its own axis. A counterweight on the opposite side of the center spindle dampens vibration for smooth operation. The tool head action, often called orbital, prevents the creation of holograms (symmetrical buffing marks), paint burns and other forms of paint damage often associated with high-speed buffing machines. When used with proper care, the Porter Cable 7424XPs design virtually eliminates the possibility of paint damage. The polishing action of the Porter Cable 7424XP Machine Model 1000 closely mimics that of circular hand polishing. Imagine being able to make 2,500 to 6,000 tight hand circles in a single minute and you’ll have a pretty good idea of how the Porter Cable 7424XP Machine Model 1000 does its job. It works just like your hand, only at super-human speed! To put the beauty of this machine into complete perspective, it works 100 times faster than a super buff athlete, but it never gets tired!

As for the HexLogic pads and Chemical guys polish, I can not endorse these products. Using a yellow pad with V32/34 I simply could not get good results on my black truck. Very frustrating. The yellow pad ended up falling apart.
Switched to Meg's D300/302 compound and polish, paired with Meg's cutting/finishing microfiber pads and got MUCH better results. Do yourself a favor and just buy the tool, and invest in the Meg's system for the liquid and pads.
It arrived, the box was tattered and broken and it clearly was in poor quality recycled packaging topped off with no outer box.
Not a good sign of things to come.
Opened the box and was greeted by a nasty industrial smell, which made me think of the conditions of the workers where this thing was made. I couldn’t imagine breathing that in all day.
Then the on/off switch feels like it will break at any point. It’s the perfect combination of stiff and loose which does wonders for inspiration of quality (Not). Then comes the “little baggie” packed with it. Alas, It’s a set of brushes with leads. Wow, in 2018 we have brushless motors. I don’t think this will last and I am going to look for something built to inspire confidence rather than hope that today isn’t the day it’s gonna break.
It reminds me of a Harbor Freight special.
Update- I used the machine. It works well, but I’m not sure it’ll last.

It was a LONG 2 days, but the results speak for themselves. Washed the car with water only, then started in on it. Started with the V32, then V36, then V38, followed by the Butter Wet Wax.
Below are some before and after pictures of the door (Oxidized VS Finished) and the second... Is the difference just between the V38 and Butter Wet Wax steps. You can see how much clearer the reflections are. Amazing.
Next up was the Leather... WOW, night and day difference. The seats were last cleaned about 8mo ago (expensive name brand from auto parts store)... they have never been this clean!
The hood photo... well, the hood was oxidized worst of all and now you can clearly see cloud reflections!!
THANKS Chemical Guys! #customerforlife #lookslikenew

Pros: At the current time of writing this review, I have not experienced any issues whatsoever over the course of my 3 month ownership. The design itself is very ergonomic. The machine feels very comfortable in your hands even after multiple lengthy detailing sessions. I had no previous experience with orbital polishers and despite this, I still got amazing results with the compounds/polishes/pads provided [See picture attached]. The pads themselves have so far proven to be very tough and of good quality. They've been used so far for a complete car detail [My car is a 2004 Nissan Sentra] and have been washed many times after each use and still appear good as new. The compounds/polishes provided are roughly enough to complete an entire detail job on one car, assuming you do not do multiple compound passes. If your car's paint is in very bad condition, you may need to buy another bottle of compound to complete the job. The vibrations and noise level are acceptable, not the best in class but fine for the price you're paying. The power cord is long enough to offer the flexibly you need while working and pairing this with an extension cord leaves you with more than enough mobility. The variable power levels work well and do give you a range of noticeable power differences. In terms of tactile build quality, the machine does feel well built and sturdy thanks to the hard plastic casing protecting the interior bits. Lastly, the price is very good and for what you pay, you do get a lot in return.
Cons: There are a few cons which I think are worthy enough to be mentioned. For starters, I found the location of the power adjustment settings are not ideal. I managed to accidentally lower the speed setting while handling the machine about 15 times over the course of the full car detail. Also, some parts of the machine underneath the black grip piece would get very hot over the course of a session. At least in the beginning, while getting used to the device, you need to be careful where you place your fingers as some of the metal screws and bits heat up. One of the backing plates provided [the red flexible one] is already starting to show some rips due to the constant bending it goes through while detailing some contours. [See picture provided]. I worry about the longevity of it and already plan on a replacement incase it progressively gets worse. Luckily, the set provides a second backing plate [the yellow one] but as it is designed to be more stiff, it does not preform as well around the contours and curves as the red flexible plate. Each backing plate comes with a small circular "washer" [Picture provided] that always needs to be there when attaching the backing plate to the machine [in order to ensure proper clearance between the machine and the rotating backing plate/pad]. The issue with this is that the washers are entirely removable for some reason and are always at risk of being lost. The washer should be permanently attached to the backing plate so glueing them down would be a smart idea - just make sure you use a heat resistant glue as the metal piece on the backing plate does get very hot. Lastly, the process of removing the backing plate is not very intuitive as it involves inserting a thin wrench into a small gap to hold a nut in place which allows you to unscrew the backing plate [Picture provided]. The whole process is frustrating and relies entirely on a completely independent tool [the wrench]. If you misplace the wrench, you will have a very difficult time removing the backing plate as no regular wrench will ever fit into the gap. I recommend visiting a machine shop and have a copy made, or somehow manage to make a copy of it using a cut-out of thin hard plastic. I personally attached it to the end of the power cable with a zip-tie to make sure it does not go anywhere [Picture provided].
Conclusion: I'm overall very satisfied with the product. The machine was a joy to use and made the process of removing the swirls, scratches, and hazing virtually effortless. For the price, I believe there is no better option. Great for beginners, too [Not once did I damage the paint]. Apart from the small issues here and there such as the placement of the power adjustment and the bits that tend to get very hot, the machine itself exceeded my expectations for the price point. If I could, I would give this product 4.5 stars.

LONG TERM EDIT: Glad to say after 2 years of use (4 complete 3-stage details) the machine has held up very well. I have encountered no issues and the machine still works as advertised.
The polisher is relatively light, making it easy to use. Some reviewer have reported problems with the pads falling apart very quickly. I did not have that issue. I was impressed with the quality of the pads, and the pad cleaner was much more effective than I thought it would be. I believe that I will be able to re-use the pads several times.
The orange pad does most of the heavy work in the first stage of detailing, so it can get quite dirty and full of polish and paint. It would help to have a second orange pad available, to allow you to change to a fresh pad when the first one gets too dirty.
All in all, I would highly recommend this package. The Chemical Guys have some informative videos on YouTube to help you make sure you're using the equipment properly.
The results really do speak for themselves. On my first go with this thing I used the blue pad (finishing pad) and was able to remove some old over-spray that has been stuck to my car for ages.
If you can wait, definitely get the kit when its on sale. As it makes a great addition to any amateur detailers arsenal.
En cuanto a los productos de Mychemicalguys sólo usé el V32, sirvió perfecto para quitar un rayón que traía muy marcado en toda la puerta. No lo quita perfectamente pero lo difuminó muy bien.
The polisher itself is well built and solid, and served me well on my first detailing job on my car.
At the end of the day, I would recommend it, quick to get comfortable with, hard to damage your car with it, and it does what it is supposed to. The balancing of the DA mechanism is really well done, and help to prevent fatigue and pains as you work throughout the day.
I was checking thru the pkg and noticed that a screw-in handle is in there...but it is not mentioned anywhere in manual or here on-line. I dont see anywhere on the machine that you can attach this handle...unless you remove a screw that is on both sides of machine. I havent removed a screw to check IF this handle will indeed screw-into the hole. Has anyone gotten this handle ? If so, where do you screw-in ?Maybe Chemical Guys can comment......
