    Comments about 7 in. Polisher with Trigger Speed Control:

    Worked in a boatyard turning around boats for a sailing club. Polished 26 boats in a summer with this beast including wrapping the power cord once (user error!) and it NEVER flinched. Paid extra to buy my own instead of less expensive version. Not saying anything negative about competion but will swear by this machine. Looking forward to working on my own boat with this tool and putting it in my will for my kids--it will certainly outlast me. It's heavy but worth it--I actually like control it gives.

      The extra RPM's are well worth the couple extra bucks..especially when doing gel-coat on boats.

        This is my work horse. I work in an auto body shop painting, buffing, and polishing cars for a living. I was using a 8 amp buffer of another brand, wich seemed to take forever and i was getting a "milky" finish. Since i made the switch my jobs look amazing and i can do a car in an "unreal" short amount of time.

        Questions & Answers

         

        New Vs. Reconditioned

        Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.

        • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
        • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
        • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee;
          New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
