    . I current use a porter cable buffer and I really want to get a new one. Can’t really decide on what to go with. flex 3140 sound good but so does the Boss. Wanted to ask other detailers. Also I do this as a side job so on a good month I only do 4-6 cars. Want something worth my money and something that will last. All of Buffing pads are 5″ so I need one with that size plate.any help would help.

      Benny, I don’t think you would go wrong with either! Both are great machines.Only thing I would debate is the Boss has not been around long enough to see how well they do in maintenance/parts/service etc.
      The Flex 3401 offers forced rotation and the Boss will bog down under a little pressure. The Boss may be a little more forgiving on the contoured areas of the car… but does have a larger throw.
      “Contoured areas” I personally would rather have the flex due to the smaller throw.
      “Flat panels” Boss for the flat panels to achieve faster correction due to the large throw.

      My advise would be get the Boss or Rupes 15. Your Porter Cable can always handle the contoured areas (small throw) and a large throw machine for the grunt of the polishing for faster results.

  2. Robert McCarty says:

    Bogging down is not a problem if you are using the correct technique. Remember with the long throw machines rotation is not always necessary due to the throw action and that is what makes these machines superior to the Flex for finishing. Use the whole Rupes system of pads and polishes and remember to let the machine do the work. The Menzerma line also works great with the Rupes because of the longer work times of the polishes. Get a Rupes 21 and a Rupes 75e Mini and you will have just about everything covered and you arm will not feel like you have used a jackhammer all day!
