Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product!! Got this buffer to replace a home made unit and the p.o.s. I got at HF. Quality unit with power to spare. Get the wheel and compound kit too, save yourself time and hassle. Unless you plan to really bare down on the polishing, have a production shop or need to polish plastic at a lower speed, this one will do it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money After fighting the HF piece of junk, I finally caught Eastwood putting this buffer on sale and I jumped. Wow, what a difference. This buffer is great, never bogs down and doesn't get hot. Now for patience and more compound.
