Essentially giving you more shine, in less time. This DA Power System Tool is compatible with DA Power System Waxing, Polishing, and Compounding Pads (sold separately.)
Better, Faster Results
Polishing and waxing your car by hand has been described as therapeutic by some and time consuming and tiring by others. No matter where you fall, the DA Power System will not only help you work faster and with less effort, it will add to the enjoyment of working on your car when you see the results.
As a result, the Meguiar's DA Power System was designed for anyone who may be intimidated by other tools and machines but is ready to jump from hand application to the next level of car care. Whether you're left handed or right handed, the Meguiar's DA Power System is designed to fit into any drill and is a versatile tool to have in your car detailing tool box.
The DA Power System can be used to easily remove oxidation, scratches and waters spots by using the DA Compound Power Pack or Compounding Power Pads, remove swirls and add a deep gloss and rich dark color by using the DA Polishing Power Pack or Polishing Power Pads, and add protection, enhance shine, and get brilliant reflections by using the DA Waxing Power Pack or Waxing Power Pads.
What is Dual Action?
Dual Action means that the pad moves in 2 directions at the same time, similar to how the Earth rotates on its axis while spinning around the Sun. Bottom line, this professional grade tool will allow you to get better results than by hand and deliver those results safely without damaging your paint or leaving behind any swirls marks.
Attaching the DA Power System to a Drill
Mount the Meguiar’s DA Power System to your drill by inserting the Meguiar’s DA Power System’s arbor into your drill’s chuck, (up to the step in the arbor). This step serves as a stop to prevent the arbor from being inserted too deep into the drill’s chuck. Tighten the drill’s chuck securely, as per the drill manufacturer’s instructions.

Which Meguiar's DA Power System Pack or Pads do I Need to Purchase?
The type of paint detailing process that you want to perform on your vehicle will determine the type of Power Pack or Power Pad that you will need to use.
If you already have the appropriate Meguiar's products to compound, polish or wax your vehicle, you only need to purchase the corresponding Power Pads to get started. However, if you do not have the necessary Meguiar's product, you can purchase one of the 3 available Power Packs to get both the necessary product and pads required.

I had recently bought an abused VW and though the car itself was fine, the paint job was in dire need of attention... it had hard rubs and scratches around ... paint and overspray on certain panels... and I don't believe it'd ever had a wash in the last three years!
So having read up on car detailing... i decided the route of clay bar, compound, polish, wax... in that order. Everything that i used was Meguiars, mainly based on the reviews that their products had.
I decided to use get THIS particular DA buffer because I felt that I didn't want to spend too much as this was my first time and as a beginner, wanted something with a smaller head that would allow me to work in smaller spaces without overrunning the panel... This fit both those bills.
After the clay (totally impressed there too, first time for me on that also), i quick washed and wiped down the panels (i only did one at a time) and used the "Compound Power Pack" which is a different head and comes with ultimate compound... i found that for deeper scratches, if i hit it a couple of times, and let the rotation of the head / drill speed slowly work it's way over the area, that gets the scratches out for me. I had worried about the 'burn your paint' scenario but like i said, this unit is totally forgiving and let me work the same area slowly without heating up the panel (apparently warm to the touch is fine, hot is bad ... thats how you gauge if you are applying too much pressure or speed).
And once i felt that the results were good (ie scratches or swirls or marks were gone), i'd wipe it down and swap the head to the one provided with this unit (yellow) and used some polish and went over the panel again.
Wiped that down when done, and then applied a coat of Canubra wax...
I hope the photos show you how well it turned out, like i said, this is a first time for me so it may not be perfect, but it's a huge difference.
I do however have a problem with the polishing pad that came with the tool. On my first attempt polishing with it, the hook and loop detached from the sponge pad. Attaching the pad to the velcro hook and loop is fool proof. It fits snuggly onto the velcro attachment. I know that I secured it properly and that it was not a result of my negligence that it came off. Reason for me saying that, I used both the compound and wax pads and did not get the same result. In fact, the area for the velcro attachment on the compounding pad is much bigger. If I was to break anything, it would have been on that pad, based on the difficulty of getting it flush in the centre of the disk or attachment.
I wasn't expecting this on my first rodeo with the pad and am a bit dissapointed in the quality. Was expecting more uses out of the pad before needing to replace it.
It is for this reason, that I have only given the kit a 4 star rating. The pictures will show exactly what it looks like after trying to re-attach without any luck.
When I purchased this, it was as a substitute for the $100+ random orbital polishers for my vehicle. I had an old yet powerful drill which hadn't seen any use in a decade. Here, I thought, was a match made in heaven.
Not only did it take about three times a long to do the job, it didn't quite do the same job. If you're looking to touch up panels that are already sparking and you have an abundance of time and articular cartilage, this might be an alternative. If, however, you're looking to remove swirls, look elsewhere.
I expected it and the pads to fall apart after a couple of uses. They have held together remarkably well. I now use it exclusively for the Windows ( sacrilege! you say, yet my Windows are the envy of my building) and hard to reach spots on my bike where it serves admirably. It's also very well designed in that it is very, very difficult to scratch your car while using this.
Hope this was helpful to some of you.
