Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service! I received this motor & accessories on 01/16/2016. This was well in advance of it's need. I started using these tools about 2 months ago (~June 2017). All went well until 07-29/2017(Saturday)...speed #1 stopped completely & #2 just hummed. I called customer service about 3:30pm the same day. I told them the problem & they said I should package the motor & FedEx will retrieve it on Tuesday. FedEx came, then Eastwood released a replacement for shipment to me immediately afterword. I received the new motor Friday, 08-04/2017 (less than 1 week had passed). When I was talking with Angela @ customer service about the problem, she didn't challenge anything I told her...all was handled swiftly & professionally. I was speechless...literally...I stuttered & said "what else needs to be done?" Nothing! WOW!!! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Machine I started off considering the Baldor 3/4 HP, but could not justify the $900 price tag, so I thought I would take a chance and order the Eastwood 1 HP dual speed buffer and glad I did. It's extremely well built and runs vibration free. Buffing is not something I do every day so I added an HTC3000 mobile base to ease my way around my garage. I selected the 3000 because it has wheel brakes at all four wheels and very robust. I mounted the buffer slightly forward to avoid tripping on the base while working, Its extremely stable and versitale enough to wheel it outside and buff. Overall very satisfied with the purchase and definitely recommend.

Thanks Scott, I should have been more specific : I'm trying to find a buffer that I can add a 4 inch sanding drum to do light sanding/grinding. Wondering if the motor could handle the load of grinding foam or cork?

Asked by: Craig T
Since you are checking out the 1 HP buffer we have the option of our Expander wheel. This will allow you to run various grits for different jobs.

Can this buffer be converted to a sander on one side?

Asked by: Craig T
Due to the long arbor for buffing we do not know of any ways to adapt a sanding belt.

Does this buffer have threaded center shaft so you can bolt on smaller buff wheels ? And can it be converted to Variable speed ? And does Eastwood sale the kit for that?

Asked by: Tommy2tone
Unfortunately the arbor's are not designed to run smaller wheels and this unit doesn't have the ability to be converted to variable speed.

Which way is the rotation, If the unit is sitting in front of you does it rotate toward or away Thanks

Asked by: Fubar
Our units will rotate towards you allowing the work to be carried out on the lower half of the buff wheel right in front of you.
