Product Description

Size: 10 foot

Griot's Garage has developed a random orbital machine polishing system that is safe for your paint and makes it easy to achieve flawless results with minimal work. It comes equipped with a powerful 850-watt motor with low-end torque for better results when polishing at low speeds. The wider 5/16 inch diameter orbit and variable speed indexing with 6 settings lets you breeze through polishing jobs. This polisher also features a standard 10-foot power cord. With the Griot's Garage system, there isn't a safer or easier way to remove swirl marks, fine scratches, and apply a protective coating to your paint--not with wool pads, not with cotton bonnets, and not by hand. The problem with the old way of using wool or cotton pads and non-orbital (straight drive/rotary) polishers is that the cutting action is so great that it produces its own heat and swirl marks, which burns and damages the paint. By following the detailed instructions, or watching the included DVD (both are included), you can polish and wax your car quickly and safely. The results will astound you. Foam pads sold separately.

I have been a auto collision tech and painter for over twentyfive years. I have really never been able to make myself happy with the results os a rotary buffer. The dual action design makes all the difference in the world. I took the handle off mine, because it was so different from what I am used to. It is so smooth the handle is not even needed. Very high quality. I would rate this a pros tool. I would suggest watching the enclosed video and a few on you tube if you are new to machine buffing. I think you'll love the results. I should also add that all three of my cars are black and there's no tougher color to make look right.

while it's true that you can get polishers like this for less money, and likely also true that you can work magic with them, I have to say that I am consistently pleased with Griot's. When I got this latest toy, I thought it looked a bit too much like an "in-house" creation and not so much what I would expect from a "professional tool" as it's advertised. That feeling lasted about 15 minutes, the time it took to unpackage it and start my play time. I have this, and the 3" inch and I've done more amazing work on two cars in the last week than I think I've done in years.

Pros:
Works as advertised, EASY to control!!! EASY to maintain, change pads, etc. OH, and definitely use their polish, it washes out with water and no mess. I had black rubber mess all over my pads in addition to the polish and it came out with running water.
Balanced and natural
Comes with instructions that really deliver what they promise to. So many times you buy stuff that comes with a "perfect world" scenario in the instructions that you just can't seem to replicate, well, not Griot's. What they did on the videos is exactly what I did in real life.

Complete so far: (using #3 polish, yellow pads, orange pads, and rubber restore
1999 Camaro Z28 HEAVY hood and door sill oxidation and clear coat breakdown- Solved with like new appearance
Same car, fully oxidized headlights, full restored to the point that I don't need to buy new ones.....clear and clean.
Same car, window and door exterior rubber welt/weather stripping, oxidized, partially pasty white and appearance of deteoration: fully restored with light sheen and factory appearance
Same car, window quarter panel: discolored and faded: fully restored and shiny.

I've just finished a four-hour session of polishing and waxing with this product. My previous buffer was a $20 10" model common at Sears and Wal-Mart. That one had no trouble with wax, but didn't have the power to apply any sort of abrasive. This one is another story entirely. It has something like 7 speed levels. On speed 5, I can't push hard enough to significantly slow the motor. The orbital action is much, much faster, and it provided quick results with Meguiar's M105 compound.

It's also a fairly industrial product. Build quality is higher than my Porter Cable cordless tools. I ran it for twenty minutes at a time with short breaks. It heated up a bit, but didn't stop, slow down, or make untoward sounds. Lake Country 6.5" pads have the perfect amount of overhang.

A few caveats: it's noisy. There's a high-pitched overtone to the motor sound akin to a circular saw that had me reaching for earplugs. It's not hugely objectionable and you could probably do without, but prudence never hurts. The power switch is finicky to turn off. The speed switch is recessed into the back of the unit and requires you to stop what you're doing to adjust it. It really should be on right side of the unit where your hand would be.

All that said, I consider this the best random orbital polisher in this price class. It's significantly more powerful (7 amps) than the Porter Cable 7424XP (4.5 amps) or Meguiar's DA (4.2 amps) and has a lifetime warranty. This Griot is periodically on sale for $100 or less; make a deal alert on Slickdeals with the word 'Orbital' and you'll eventually find one of the three for a song.

UPDATE:

Combined with a hook-and-loop bristle pad and basic cleaning solution, this is an incredible carpet-cleaning machine. I've also used it with a heavy cutting compound to clean a tub.

This polisher works excellent! The only suggestion is that the backing plate should be a 5" plate, because the outer edges of the current backing plate eat into the pad which deteriorates them quickly. As a detailer at a car dealership, I would not recommend any other dual action polisher within this price range!

After 4 years 6" Griot orbital is still going strong and looks brand new when cleaned up. My only regret is I didn't get the one with the 25 ft cord.

A light cutting pad (typically orange in color) with Meguiars M205 will correct MOST scratches and paint imperfections. Use Meguiars M105 and maybe a light cutting pad (typically yellow in color) to fix deeper scratches or for going over wet sanding marks. After the M205, I go straight to a finishing pad (typically black in color) to apply Liquid Glass or Collinite #845... after this hazes, I use a terry cloth bonnet to remove it. DONE! The car is good for the year.

I also use this orbital to polish small items. I clamp the orbital into a desktop vice to hold it and run the small parts across the pad by hand.
