TORQ TORQX Random Orbital Polisher Kit (8 Items)
Designed For The Professional, Perfect For The Enthusiast
TORQX is the perfect first machine polisher for any detailing enthusiast or starting professional. Whether you have one garage queen, two daily drivers, or a fleet of customers’ cars to care for, the TORQX executes every detailing job quickly and easily, and with better results than going by hand alone. The powerful motor, 8mm dual action orbital throw, and compact design deliver powerful and consistent polishing, paint correction, and cleaning results with minimal fatigue and wear on the user. Variable speed controls allow the user to adjust the power output on the fly. Take on aggressive scratch and oxidation removal, scrub spills and stains from carpets, or spread the most exquisite coat of wax over sensitive paint finishes with just one machine.
Switch Backing Plates To Polish Any Area, Large Or Small: Streamlined Integratio
Detailers can easily switch between 3 inch, 5 inch, and 6 inch backing plates for improved versatility. TORQ Tools applied a Streamlined Integration engineering approach to make the TORQX accept 3’’, 5’’, and 6’’ backing plates without extensive modifications, or voiding of warranties. Simply use the included TORQ wrench to remove and swap backing plates to handle any size job. Traditional dual action polishers require extensive modification and counterweight changes to change pad sizes without voiding the warranty. Different detailing jobs require different size buffing pads and backing plates. The TORQX comes equipped with a durable 5” backing plate for use with all 5.5 inch buffing and polishing pads. 5.5’’ pads strike the perfect balance to polish flat and curved panels with ease.
Balanced Ergonomic Design (BED): Comfort During Extended Use
TORQ engineers designed the TORQX to work with the user for enhanced comfort and superior polishing results. The extended comfort front handle grip, tailored body length, and 5’’ backing plate size maximize leverage and polishing efficiency, and minimize the pressing force needed to polish paint effectively. TORQ engineers also placed the speed control dial in the middle of the body of the TORQX: right above the user’s thumb during operation. Intuitive placement of speed controls keeps detailers focused on the job with adjustments easily made on the fly. Integrated cooling vents channel air through the handle to cool the motor, buffing head, and counterweight for extended polishing jobs and machine lifespan. The power switch is tucked away from the action at the back end of the machine, and is easily reached while still controlling the machine through shutdown with one hand.
TORQ Forward Grip (TFG): Designed For The Detailer
Poor machine ergonomics leads to fatigue, sore joints, numb arms and fingers, and poor polishing results. TORQ engineers use an 'outside-in' design approach to fit the machine to the user’s comfort and working conditions. The textured front handle gives superior comfort and control with less fatigue while polishing on any flat or vertical surface. More comfort and control gives users a smoother polishing experience for better polishing results in less time.
Compact And Versatile Detailing Machine
The TORQX Random Orbital Polisher is the perfect first machine for the weekend warrior enthusiast, and also makes a great addition to any professional’s detailing arsenal. The compact form factor of the TORQX makes it perfectly suited for polishing in tight areas on any vehicle. The TORQX uses standard 5/16’’ - 24 spindle thread backing plates; switch to 3’’ backing plates to polish small areas or 6’’backing plates for extra large panels.
Precision Power P² - Power Flex Technology
Electronic control systems increase power smoothly upon startup to reduce wear and tear on the motor and internal components. The built-in Precision Power (P²) controller gradually increases power as speed settings increase. This clever adjustment takes only a fraction of a second, yet greatly improves the life of the motor and moving components, and reduces the likelihood of flinging product off the pad of the machine by managing power fluctuations gradually. The TORQX leads its class in smooth startup and running conditions, and is a pleasant tool to use and work with.

Use the Orange Hex-Logic Cutting Pad to remove swirls, scratches, and oxidation to restore deep gloss and pure reflection to painted surfaces.

- The TORQX Random Orbital Polisher features a safety support ridge built into the top of the machine’s case for increased stability.

Never worry about your machine rolling off the table or falling off your detailing cart

This package comes with everything you see in the picture. The polisher/buffer, a 4 pack of sale compounds and polishes (4 oz), and 3 pads. This is a complete system that gives you the ability to fix most car imperfections. But it is not a miricale worker.
You have to put in the time and have the correct technique to get great results. Even then there are some things you will not be able to correct. So before you think "I don't want to buy this cause someone said it didn't work", realize that there are limitations to any paint corrections. I will talk about it again in a little bit. But first back to the review.
The unit itself is built very well. It is a very sturdy and well balanced machine. "What does he mean by well balanced?" What I'm referring to is that, even on the lowest setting, you can handle this machine with one hand.
The pads are hook and loop (velcro) and are 5.5". This is somewhat an odd size that puts you in a situation where you have to find them online most of the time. But to be honest is is a happy medium. Each pad has their own uses. You need to make sure you are using the right one for each situation.
The compounds are from Chemical Guys based out of California. Their products are probably some of the best that I have ever used. They are very user friendly and have a great smell. Yes I said great smell. If you are going to compound or polish your car its nice to have something that has a pleasant scent.
So if you have read it this far and know how to compound or polish a car that's all that I have. Those of you who don't know what to do can read on if you want. This is a small tutorial and list of products you will need in order to get great results.
1: Wash your car.
This is the starting point to any body work. You should use only microfiber. *DO NOT USE TERRY CLOTHS OR HOUSEHOLD RAGS* These rags will hurt your paint and cause small scratches.
2: Clay Bar
Get your favorite clay bar and clay your paint and glass. Periodically fold the clay over and knead it to get a clean/fresh side. Use a clay bar lube or quick detailer spray. Do small sections at a time and wipe off excess product when complete.
Mix Isopropyl Alcohol and distilled water in a spray bottle (I would research to see what you are comfortable with). This will strip any wax, clay bar, or sealant that remains on the vehicle.
4: Determine the work you need to do.
Many people jump into this with a all or nothing attitude. What need to do is look at all of the scratches, water spots, bird dropings, and any other imperfections. From there you need to determine what is the minimum that can be used to take out the scratches. If you have a lot of paint correction with deepnscratches you should compound. If it is just water spot with a few scratches then you need to polish. This step, though, is to determine what you need to use.
Compound is more abrasive than Polish. With this in mind, depending on what you determined in the previous step, start with the least aggressive to get the job done. If it doesn't work to get all imperfections out then move up in the compounds (like 36 to a 38 in this kit). Once you get all the imperfections out that you can then move down to a polish and polish the entire vehicle.
6: Apply a sealant.
I used Jet Seal recently. I personally like it. A sealant basically protects you paint from contaminate like water spots, dirt, and bird droppings. Jet seal also make your paint surface hydrophobic which is pretty nice.
7: Apply your favorite wax.
You can use whatever wax you want. I personally like using a liquid wax. A liquid wax can be spread with a polisher with the correct pad. We are here to work smarter not harder.
That's all there is to it really. Just note that not all imperfections will come out. On a neglected paint job I would expect to get out about 90% of the imperfections. Then there are some things that you can not remove with the products in this package. Deep scratches that are into the color coat or show metal will not come out with these products. Orange peel is another imperfection that you can not buff out completely. These two types of imperfections will either need to be wet sanded or the panel will have to be repainted.
Do your research. Look up different techniques if you would like. But once you feel comfortable with what you know, compounding and polishing is easy. And this kit gives you nearly everything you need.
*Tip* use a permenant marker to put a line on the backing paint. This will allow you to see if it is free spinning on the paint or not.
I have used these 4oz bottles on 2 vehicles now and I still have product. These foam pads are great but I would invest in more if you can. These pads are great for the do it yourselfer but if you want to use these for a commercial purpose then you should get more pads. I have used my orange pad quite a bit as it is the one I use to get out most of the deep scratches. Honestly, if you were to get a better cutting pad you would be better off.
The machine itself is still in great condition and I have not regreted buying this one bit.
The buffer is easy to use too and the pads wash up really well. It’s not as loud as I was expecting. Similar to a drill. I would highly recommwnd watching the chemical bros youtube videos as they provide some good tips.
Top international reviews
First off, we weren't enamored with the design. We've used units where the on/off switch is positioned near where you're holding the unit for easier access. This one is located at the end/bottom and has almost a afterthought feeling to it. You have to consciously hold the unit steady because it's running in order to shift your grasp and access it. It may not seem like a big deal but after hours of working with it and your arms are jello every little bit helps.
Another subjective design dislike is the lack of a extending bar to hold onto, one that some units come with that can be attached/switched to either side (for left or right handed users) in addition to the main shaft end you can use. This one just has the main shift end for you to hold on it, so while it works it does offer less in terms of choices in usage. It's fair to note we know users who have the other design and don't install the extender bar even though their units comes with it, so the main shift end is seemingly where many prefer to hold onto anyway.
Lastly, the price. Perhaps I didn't buy it on sale, but perusing the reviews and seeing what some people paid could've made the difference for us. At regular price, there are better options to be had - even going to our local Canadian Tire would fetch us a better deal. However, if it were on sale, some of the dislikes could be overlooked and just "dealt with" since they don't affect the performance of the actual unit and in turn making it a 5 star product, 1 extra for pure value.
All that aside, it still worked as intended but didn't check enough boxes for us.
I kept the polisher in the box, in my (heated) shop after each use to properly maintain it.
I am a self-employeed Detailer, a polisher is my income. It was treated as if it was my life..
It is Nov 30th, the housing has already cracked... Not sure if it came like that and I didn't notice, or what.
I've polished maximum 15 vehicles with it, it shouldn't be broken..
Feel like I wasted a lot of money, which sucks as a small business owner..
I should note that I used autocolor compound before and nothing has beaten that compound for taking any scratches out too bad not I couldn't find it. All in all I'd highly recommend this machine and Chem Guys products for anyone regardless of your needs it will suit it quite well with excellent results.
The TorqX bursted into a ball of smoke within the first 5 minutes of use, I'm hoping that they will handle the warranty claim quickly.
As for the rest of the kit everything seems very high quality and well assembed.
My truck looks like a Jewel now. :)
