Pros: extremely easy to use, cuts great and polishes even better. very smooth with less vibrations than other polisher's I have used- Flex and Porter Cable. This polisher has finished better and saves at least 30% of the time you spend on each panel.

Cons: maybe the price, but the amount of time you save everywhere else makes up for it.

I just used the 15es for the first time this past weekend. I've never polished a car before, and there's definitely an art to it. I'm very happy with the results I achieved (I only did the top of the trunk and rear side panel). It's fun, but takes time and patience to get good results. I experimented with three of the Rupes polishes (all except the blue one). I know people say it's easy, but if you're a novice like make sure you leave yourself half a day to at least somewhat figure out how to use it!

Just completed a test area on my black raven cadillac with the rupes mini. Im a novice and this polisher made the job so easy. I removed a marking in the paint with menzerna 2500 and the green rupes foam pad. It left a glossy finish. With a little experience I'll find out what polish works best with different pads to accomplish my goal. This polisher is the cadillac of all polish machines. I would always recommend using the rupes pads because their so much easier to center on the backing plate.

I love this machine! It was so easy to use on a 28' sailboat basically using just 1 hand the whole time. This way I could just keep switching hands when 1 got tired allowing me to do the whole boat without taking a break. I've also done several cars now. It's very quick and no worry of burning paint

What more can I say, besides that this machine is the best! I've used a ton of polishers- flex, porter cable, dewalt, on and on, and none compare to the Rupes. It's got a bit of a learning curve, but once you get used to it. It's incredible. The versatility of it is second to none. You can apply wax/sealant with it, swap pads, and then do some serious scratch removal. It cuts extremely fast, and finishes down phenomenally. Pair this machine with any pad, and any compound and you'll be blown away!

This machine is great for professionals and amateurs alike. It is easy to use, and produces outstanding results in less time. The machine is very smooth and easy to operate. It's ergonomic design makes it comfortable to use for hours and hours - it is very smooth, too! The huge throw requires less pressure on the pad to correct the paint, so you are less fatigued after spending an entire day polishing. This is my new workhorse machine! My porter cable is now reserved for 3"-4" work and applying sealants and waxes.
