I used it the first time on my boat and I can almost shave with the mirror like finish it produced. I'm 68 years yound and it didn't wear me out.

Coming from a random orbital, I thought polishing cars was all about hacking away and being exhausted just to achieve mediocre results. That was before I got my hands on the 9227C. The Makita does in one pass what would normally take two or three passes. Not only that but the clarity and depth in the paint is so superior, the difference can be seen in low light. In the sun, cars look better than new.

I love the option of picking between two handles and the gentle start feature on the trigger. With enough practice, you can even spool up the speed on the dial smoothly and linearly. The machine is heavier than most random orbitals but it feels like a quality buffer and is very well put-together. Finally, even on notch 3, this Makita is very quiet in its operation and is probably the quietest buffer I've ever used.

The learning curve is about the only downsize I can identify with this machine but that holds true for all rotary buffers. I strongly suggest getting a bit of practice with it before going to work on a customer car but once you get the feel of it, you won't regret buying this machine. I guarantee it is worth every penny.

finally DI has gotten the makita into their inventory. unfortunately for me when i bought mine they did not so i had to resort to other company's that took much longer to ship it out. onto the review, i dont like the stock backing plate at all, get the 3m, meguires, gloss it, or lake county plates before you place your order. unlike many other buffers that go straight to speed, the makita has the slow start feature that helps to minimize product sling and makes it easier to control right off the bat. this buffer is HEAVY. if you are transitioning from a metabo or a porter-cable prepare for a workout. after a few days of use it will feel natural.all in all it is a great buffer, easy to access controls, trigger lock, and a very well balenced machine that will take out any defect you can come across!
