Product Description

Griot's Garage THE BOSS features 900 watts and 7.5amps of muscle, with a large throw (15mm or 21mm), to combine for the perfect amount of performance, control, and comfort when polishing! The three key terms highlight exactly what innovation and features Griot's Garage packed into this state of the art random orbital polisher.

  • 900 watt, 7.5amp motor delivers enough torque to maintain consistent pad rotation
  • Precision machined, steel counterbalance for smooth, low vibration operation
  • Premium NSK bearings deliver long lasting, efficient, quiet and smooth operation
  • Smart heat management enhances tool consistency and extends pad life
  • Silicone-rubber 13' Cord is flexible and durable
  • Gusseted cord support ensures long cord life
  • Quick access brush side ports allow for easy maintenance

  • Variable speed trigger throttle allows the user to throttle the tool from a dead stop to the maximum dial setting with an easy swipe of the trigger
  • Quick response delivers the power when you want it, acutely focusing the control you have over the tool
  • The trigger lock allows you to set the speed you want and operate the tool independent of the trigger

  • Six double-shot rubber grips ensure you stay comfortable all day by absorbing energy
  • Ergonomic design features unique Pistol and Platypus Grips for even distribution of pressure

The random orbital movement of THE BOSS allows you to achieve professional polishing results in less overall polishing time. What previously may have taken several sets of passes can now be done in just one to two sets of passes! The backing plate to shroud engagement is an extremely safe configuration, as it limits pad rotation. Should increased paint correction be desired, the included stainless steal washer may be inserted in between the drive hub and backing plate to induce rotation. This rotation combined with the large throw (15mm or 21mm) will deliver this super fast imperfection removal. THE BOSS may use either a 5" or 6" Pad system interchangeably. If you are looking for the perfect buffer for your detailing work, check out the Griot's Garage THE BOSS today!

  • 5" (15mm throw) or 6" (21mm throw) backing plate

Professional Detailer Reviews

I feel the G15 and G21 are better tools in every way and if you are in the market for a new large-throw DA, my opinion is that THE BOSS just raised the bar to a significantly higher standard and threw down the DA gauntlet.

The BOSS 21 is like no other. Speed selector dial, throttle control switch, ease of use and the balance cannot be beat. Want to make short work out of what you think is heavy swirls and damage, don't look at the price, look at the results.

I have used the BOSS cremes/pads for about a year with a cheap DA and they quickly became my favorite line. When I got the itch to upgrade to a long throw polisher this was the natural choice. I use it with the optional 5" backing plate and the INCLUDED washer mod (awesome that it's included) to aid pad rotation for personal preference. It is well made, powerful, and comfortable. The rubber grips and variable trigger are awesome and I love that you can set it on it's back without it falling over. I'm so glad I invested in this machine.

I bought the boss 15. Needless to say it is quite an upgrade on power and refinement from my old PC 7424. It is a beast and it will perform as advertised. Zero complaints here.
