Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FordCar15 Great simple polisher
I bought this polisher to detail my own car. I had never polished a car before I bought this. It is a great piece for the money and virtually fool proof. Since it is not forced rotation you can't really screw up and hurt your paint. For the cost of a professional detail I was able to buy this polisher and the other needed materials. Well worth the purchase. The polisher does not come with a Velcro adapter for most common polishing pads, so you'll need to get that separately.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve This is a great machine!
This is a professional quality polisher. Feels good in the hands, has excellent power and control. The job I did on my car was so much better than the cheap random orbital polisher I had previously been using. If you're a beginner, watch a youtube video on using this machine. (There are a few that are very helpful). The machine is a bit heavy, so it can be difficult to polish a large vertical surface, much easier to polish a horizontal surface. The machine needs to be broken down into three parts (polisher, handle, backing pad) in order to store it in its original box, and don't lose the washer and wrench while you're doing this!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheCarGuy Great product for the money...
I did a lot of research before purchasing a polisher and found the porter cable to be the best bang for the buck. I have used it on my car and all I can say is WOW, it really brought the paint back to life. I did buy a Velcro backing plate and a few cutting and polishing pads along with good polishes to get such a great finish. You will need these as well, so intend on spending more money than just on the polisher. I did search the web for the best price and found it to be here on home depot site. This is an easy polisher to use with no worries of burning or swirls so it is great for the beginner or pro detailer. This is one purchase I'm glad I made and can't wait to use it again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bigeytk Best for car wax
I've tried so many product and read alot of review before I bought this polisher. So far this one is the best one. It doesn't burn the paint of the car and not much vibration compare to other i've used. If your purpose to buy this product to wax car like myself then you won't regret. One important thing and remember, set speed to 1 - 3 only and always test on your hand first. If it doesnt burn your hand than it won't burn the paint. I honestly never try speed 4 or 5 but i know definitely not 6. I used 1 and 2 mostly, 3 for stratch removal. Just a tips...hopefully it will help.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rickv Excellent Buffer for the price
The Porter-Cable 7424XP is an excellent buffer. I have been polishing my cars by hand for a number of years and this buffer not only simplifies the job, but also yields a professional like result. With different pad options and instructional videos available online, it is easy to do an extremely good job polishing whatever vehicle you choose. I use it on my cars and my boats as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Celicaman Got the job done!
First attempt at paint correction with a machine. The Porter Cable got the job done and the results were fantastic. I was not afraid that I was going to damage the paint further because this machine does not use forced rotation, only oscillations! Highly recommended for the entry level car enthusiast.

Porter Cable polisher is a great price from Home Depot online. This is a good project for those who wash and polish their own vehicles. Home Depot has the best price, too.
