Uncomfortable to Use
Great tool for the price
There is no doubt this is a great tool for the price and for me pretty much all pros with just one con.
The only down side I came across is that the body where you hold onto it is to big around to hang onto for any length of time. Since you can not reach all the way around you hand fatigues. I have been working with tools most of my life as a professional auto tech so my hands are not weak.
Now depending on how big your hand is will determine if its a problem for you. The only reference I can give in regards to hand size is I wear a large size when it comes to work gloves.

what exactly do you use the polishing pad for to put polish on, or to buff it out

Worked well until the spindle stripped
The spindle stripped while screwing the pad in about the 5th or 6th time I used this polisher. It stripped way to easy in my opinion.

1st time I tried it
Hi all. Bought this unit back awhile ago. Finally had a chance to use it. The Weight of this unit is what made me reluctant to try it. Quiet when running on 1st speed. Used it to apply wax to my 16 Tucson. Easy to use. Directions could be improved. Only shows a picture of the Polish Pad installed. Mine came with, What looks like a Spacer ring. No idea what it is for? Cord could use a device to lock an extension cord together. Velcro strap maybe?

Great Tool For Detailing Boat
Bought this after researching DIY tool alternatives in its price range. Used it to detail a 16 year old boat that had been neglected. It did a great job in cutting, polishing, and waxing. I am pleased with its performance to date.

Great detailing tool
i bought this 7424Xp polisher to augment my detailing tools and i installed a 5" backing plate which seems to be optimal for this machine. very smooth operation makes correcting and polishing paint defects a breeze without the need for a $400.00 polisher. i would recommend this polisher to anyone.

Good Upgrade
Bought the PC 7424XP is to supplement my 7 inch Milwaukee variable speed professional rotary polisher. The PC is lighter and easier to handle, plus the random orbit feature prevents swirl marks and burn thru. Polished and seal coated my black Q60. Then polished and waxed my navy blue C5 Vette. Very happy with ease of use and the results from this machine.

I purchased and used Hex Logic pads and recommend them highly, as they do not sling polish and wax all over the car unlike most other pads.

My only complaint is the machine does not have a flat surface on it's back. This makes it difficult to lay it down on the ground, or workbench and keep the pad upright so it says clean. I'm planning to fabricate a "U" handle and attach it using the threaded holes that are designed to hold the auxiliary handle.

The above complaint is the only reason I didn't give the PC 7424XP five stars. Buy it, you won't be sorry!

Heavy Duty, Powerful, Like New
This Porter Cable polisher is just right for polishing the fiberglass exterior of my Winnebago Adventurer motor home. This heavy duty tool polished and buffed the weathered jell coat of the exterior fiberglass shell on my 34ft motor home to a show room new luster. This heavy duty, powerful tool does not bog down or stall on the toughest jobs. I consider this a bargain tool and with the combination of CPO's WORLD CLASS CUSTOMER SERVICE, a no brainer bargain. I found out with my first purchase from CPO, that you can't go wrong buying from this company. CPO does stand behind what they sell.
