    Not amazing but does the work though. The battery doesn’t last long so if you are polishing a big car or a van do it quickly before the battery gets flat.

      It doesn't say that it is dual action (orbital) so probably best avoided. Good way to burn/remove your paint if you aren't careful.

        Ive actually tried burning paint on a rotary buffer and you have to be holding it on the same spot for minutes to start burning paint. I don't see how anyone can be that dumb tbh.

          Maybe depends on power - I haven't used one myself but I've seen a lot of warnings. I'm on the look out for A DA one myself. The recommended ones are more than I want to spend.

            @reu: My rotary spins bloody fast. Either way, it's quite a stupid warning imo. Keep it moving you'll be fine.
            $70 is too much for you?

              @bogak: Recommended ones like DAS6(?) are gt $200

              @bogak: I agree. I used the Ozito one from Bunnings and used speed 3 max. Was fine. Just keep it moving.

              The one in the link and similar are useless for restoring paint. Just don't have the power.

        Just keep an eye on the Rockwell DA. It's a proper DA polisher, just a little noisy. Change the 180mm backing plate to a 125mm/5" backing plate and you're all set. A much better buy than those $200 DA polisher if you are just starting off.

        This polisher is just a polisher or wax applicator at most. Doubt it's even powerful enough to properly cut or paint correct.

    I picked up the corded Rockwell DA for forty something dollars, haven't used it yet, but much better purchase than this IMO

    however you will need the fluffy bonnets
