I recently took delivery of this machine and just can't put it down. The electronic speed control does exactly what they claim. It maintains speed even running an eight inch soft pad with sixty grit on the slowest speed setting of 300 rpm! The handle is another great bonus with a much greater combination of postions than a regular side grip. This polisher/sander maintains Makita's rep as having the lightest...but strongest polisher/sanders around, this one's a feather. It also has the standard goodies like the spindle lock and trigger hold. It's definitely the favorite in my shop.

I had a body shop for twenty years. Spent more time behind a polisher than would be believed if I stated it. Polishers for automotive use were all 2400 RPM. It was either on or off, and no variable speed. When trying to feather in an area, I used to feather the switch on and off intermittently. This polisher by Makita takes it to the next level. The moment I took it out of the box and plugged it in, it was preset at one on the speed dial. I squeezed the trigger, and it crawled around so slow I couldn't believe it. Then when setting it at a higher number it gave you variable speed on the trigger. That way you had the option of adjusting by the trigger, any speed up to the preset number. Additionally, you could press in the lock on, and it would remain at a constant speed. In plain words, every option was considered, well thought out, and integrated into the tool. Leave it to Makita to make another dead on accurate tool. Add to that the built in smart electronics, which gives you just the right amount of power to keep it running at the preset speed, even when it encounters more resistance. That keeps the speed constant.
I do woodworking projects now, and was looking for a solution to give me a polished finish. The problem was that my old polishers had two speeds. Flat out 2400 or stop. Additionally they had only one option for bonnets, or cutting wheels: Large!
The Makita 9227C comes with a hook and loop 7" backing pad, and an included centering spline. Their are nice polishing wool bonnets that work with the hook and loop pad. Their are also hook and loop lambswool polishing pads that are close napped, and make for a very tight clean edge. Great for getting into those otherwise inaccessable areas.

Verified Purchase
I purchased two of these for our business. One broke when used and started to smoke. We use these every day in our marble restoration business and have noticed that the quality of these sanders have declined over the past few years. But, they still do work better than other less expensive models sold at harbor freight

Verified Purchase
I purchased the Makita 7 inch hook and loop polisher primarily for use on my car. The product arrived quickly and was well packaged. I attached the handle easily and purchased three different buffers for use with this product.

Unfortunately, after only two uses, a strong melting plastic smell was emitted and the buffer started to spark. I was extremely disappointed that the product failed so quickly. Both times I used it were extremely light use (once to buff out a scratch on my car, and the second was to polish a glass cooktop).

I am lucky enough to live within a 30 minute drive to a local Makita repair center. I brought the buffer in and they explained that the motor would have to be replaced because of a defect in the original one (a loose part that caused the previous motor to fry). They were extremely helpful with the repair and they had the refurbished buffer ready for me within 2 days.

Overall I am still disappointed that I purchased a top quality product only to have it fail almost immediately. I had to take the time to make two trips to a repair location (about 2 hours of driving), but I do feel lucky that I had this option. If a repair center was not nearby I would have been out of luck.

Now that I have a defect free unit the buffer works great. It is extremely powerful and solid when used, and I love the variable speed. I have used it to buff my car, refinish my granite counters and stove top, and even clean and buff an old tub. Next time I make a purchase for a tool like this I will definitely check to make sure they have a repair location nearby.

I purchased the Makita sander/polisher Makita 9227C 7-Inch Hook and Loop Electronic Polisher/Sander ten years ago. It has been used after year to compound and wax a 31' Cabo and a 19' Grady. Some days during spring commissioning, the Makita was used for 10 hours straight and then lent to friends who used it for their boat projects. It has more than enough power so that RPMs do not vary under load, and yet it is light enough to use for hours at a time. This machine converts the arduous manual task of fiberglass compounding and waxing into a much more tolerable one while providing a quality of fiberglass finishing that is just outstanding. Moreover, during a full decade of use it has never skipped a beat. The only problem I had was my own fault: I tore up the cord by getting it wrapped up on the shaft. My prior polisher was a more expensive Fein model that abruptly stopped functioning after only one season and was found to be inexplicably unrepairable by the manufacture! If you maintain a fiberglass boat, get this polisher; you won't regret it.
