Great buffer that offers great performance and piece of mind for not destroying your paint. This thing will never damage your paint. How? The PC 7424 basically has an internal clutch if you will. How well does this work at saving your paint? There are plenty of demonstrations out there of people showing how paint safe this buffer is with the most aggressive pads and compound polishes with no damage. You don't have to worry about damaging your paint with this buffer. Now, just because this is paint safe doesn't mean it can't remove scratches and imperfections. You can use this bad boy for cutting/compounding, light polishes, or finishing polish. I use this on my own cars as part of the prep work before applying a ceramic coating. You can remove some deep scratches and imperfections in the paint with the right cutting polish/compound and pad. I recommend that you pick up some lack county yellow, orange, white and black pads. This will cover all the uses you will come across from heavy cutting/compounding, to medium, light, and just finishing polish. Polish wise I recommend Meguiar's M105 and M205, or you can do Gtechniq's P1 nano polish. Now go ahead and buy this puppy, you have read this far into my review because you are thinking about buying it, so buy it...do it...it's not peer pressure it's just your turn.
Bought this as a first polisher/buffer. It works well! I was able to remove about 70% of the swirls on my Chrysler 300C with an orange pad and Griot's Fast Correcting Cream. A bit of vibration and some noise, but nothing bad.
Kit worked out perfect for me. Polished my 1 series BMW with Meguiar's 105/205 polish and it looks like new again. Also ordered an extra set of pads since you should change them out at least once while polishing a car. The only flaw I found was the speed dial seems a bit touchy, between 5 and 6 it speeds up quite a bit. Also it's a little loud but I still love it.
