The popular Brinkmann Dual Xenon has been on back order since Spring and unfortunately DI, like many stores, eventually sold out of their current stock. Since this unit is not expected to be available until November we would like to recommend a great alternative, the Brinkmann MaxFire Marine Dual LED Rechargeable Spotlight. Take a look at the product review by Ivan Rajic of LUSTR Auto Detail here. This review will compare these lights side by side and list out the pros and cons of each model. It my surprise you with what one Ivan prefers!
There has also been a slight change to the very popular Porter Cable 7424XP. Very quietly Porter Cable has switched out the standard counterweight in these machines and they are now stock with 6″ counterweights instead of the 5″. This allows you to really use any size pad and backing plate combo without having to worry about using the larger counterweight with the larger pads. If you still would like to use the 5″ with the smaller pads we sell the 5″ counterweights here.
