This worked just perfectly for polishing and waxing my vehicle and I'm sure it will keep on working as well.
I purchased the Astro 4607 5" PU Velcro Backing Pad on mine.
This was easy to use and saved me a ton of hours instead of trying it by hand on just one polish and wax job for my vehicle. Using this took me only 2 hours to polish then wax my car with this. From the variable speeds the way it does smaller circles because the dual orbiter inside leads for a quick and perfect finish on an all black painted car. I also enjoyed the smaller size I was able to use only one hand to apply adequate pressure on harder to reach spots on my hood.
For never using a polisher ever before this was definitely a beginner friendly polisher because I didn't damage the paint or make anything worse using it.
