This is not a bad little buffer and it did the job for me, putting a nice shine on the family minivan and sedan, but I'm sure a professional detailer would find some things lacking here, like variable speeds and a bit more umph to the motor. I found it comfortable to use with the perimeter handle, but the short cord that must be mated to an extension cord does create some real problems dangling and getting in the way. I tried other reviewers' suggestions about looping the cord around my neck, but only found that uncomfortable especially when changing buffer positions. Often times, the connection would just rub the surface of the car, and occasionally get snagged on things like the roof luggage carrier. By far, the worst problem is the fact that 7 inch replacement buffer pads are about impossible to find. You can find 5, 6, 8, 9, 10 inch pads all over the place, from auto supply houses to detailing shops, but I defy you to find much of anything for a 7 inch buffer/polisher. Not even Sears carries them. The ones Sears includes in the box are pretty worthless too. The applicator bonnet can only be used once, and the terry cloth polishing one disintegrated on its first washing. I will be returning my buffer and getting one that uses a size pad more readily available.

I have been detailing my cars and some friends for about 5 years now, and I always did polishing and waxing by hand. I finally decided to give one of these a try. I don't know how I did this all by hand before. This buffer is a really good product and reduces time for me. There is plenty of power, and the size is easy to control with one hand. I cannot complain at all about this buffer, especially for $40. Hopefully this lasts a while.
I guess to apply wax to vehicle or boat would be ok. I was looking for more spinning action and just could not get it. I understand how to buff and you don't have to have much pressure but just did not work for me and the application I was looking for. I took it back.
I purchased this polisher because it was 7in. rather than 6in.PLEASE keep in mind this is a POLISHER not a buffer this tool is intended to apply and remove polishes, not to remove swirls and defects.However dried caked on wax will be hard to remove with any polisher !! best on paint sealers and polish. I use mine daily and love it !!! VERY easy to hold.

Selected the 7-inch buffer as I felt it would work better for our vehicles (Civic and Terrain). The unit is easy to handle without extra weight and my first electric buffer.
I was concerned about the unit because of the price but it is strong and does a good job of buffing and polishing. I did read the reviews and someone said it bogged down under pressure. Either they haven't a clue how to use the unit or got a bad one. Applied ample pressure and it worked well. I have had this unit about a week.
Like this a lot. Does what it is advertised to do. I like the 7 inch better than the 10 inch I had years ago because it is easier to use and can be controlled easily with one hand. Only rub is that the wax application pad needs to be replaced after every use, unlike the buffing pads which are washable and reusable
Sorry to report that this buffer/polisher was not up to the task. I bought it to polish my fiberglass boat, but if any pressure was applied greater than the weight of the polisher, it stopped rotating and vibrated only. Using its own weight was not adequate to remove the polish.

Bought this buffer for detailing my boat. Have never done this before, but it came out nicely.use the aplicater bonnet followed by the terry cloth bonnet to buff to a shine. Then I used the lambswool bonnet to leave the mirror like sheen to the gelcoat. Overall, very satisfied. I had no issues with the cord being in the way as some others say. I found it comfortable to work with.
