I am befuddled with researching the various buffer pads. There are White, red, black, smooth, waffled, wool, and so on. I am trying to educate myself as to what to by for polishing, glazing, waxing and so on. Nobody seems to discus the differences or the intended use of these various pads. Help, please.

Can I use this to remove dried, old wax on the hood of my car??

Asked by: TrustNoJuan
Actually the first thing I used it for was to remove heavy oxidation from the roof of my 14 year old pick-up caused by the harsh central Texas sun, with clear coat safe rubbing compound. The paint now looks new again.

4.5 Amp 6 in. Variable Speed Random Orbit Polisher is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 109.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works exactly as expected, not a ton of power until you get it up to the 4-6 speed range but that... Works exactly as expected, not a ton of power until you get it up to the 4-6 speed range but that's alright since I'm sure you'd use these lower speeds for applying waxes and glazes; I didn't try since I have a separate machine for waxing. I've had the polisher for a couple weeks now and have used on 1 car and a jet ski so I can't speak to it's durability and longevity but I don't have any concerns with those since it seems to be a fairly sturdy unit. It's nice that it doesn't shake you into submission while you're using it either, my hands and arms never got numb or tingly once in the few hours use, like happens with my cheap RO buffer/waxer. A couple features that are lacking: cord strain relief to prevent the unit from unplugging from the extension cord when you're moving around the vehicle, like what came with my waxer, which is just a strap at the end of the cord and works like the one in the attached image and a button to lock the unit from spinning when changing backing pads or at least some way to attach the wrench to the unit so it doesn't get lost. My Porter-Cable grinder has the wrench slide right into the handle which is very convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I had very old polisher that was a hand me down from my dad. It was bigger and much heavier, being older. This one is much easier to handle. The only thing I've used it for so far was to repair the finish on the top of my x-cab pick-up that became oxidized by the harsh Central Texas sun. Out of sight out of mind. One day I looked at it and worked very hard with clear coat rubbing compound. It removed some of it but left quite a bit. With this polisher and the same rubbing compound it quickly removed the rest of the oxidation and now it looks like new paint, though the truck turned 14 in February.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Porter-Cable Polisher.... You just can't beat the PC for polishing needs on cars or boats. Easy to handle and almost imposible to cut or burn into the paint. Infact, strike that, I think it is impossible with this polisher. Great for the beginner! Great price at Home Depot and super fast delivery! I'm very happy with the whole process!

I am awaiting the replacement. I was disappointed with the detail of directions of this product. It does not elaborate on the rpm for each of the 6 steps. All in all I am very pleased with it.

Heavy usage by professionals see the mechanism fail. But for as much as once a month usage and a couple of vehicles it should last for many years. For a few vehicles a day, five days a week, they are known to fail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from P.C. polisher Top of the line, most of cheaper ones you have to muscle around the car. And this leaves ya exhausted by the time your done. The porter cable is so easy & smooth to operate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from PC 7424xp Somewhat scary at first, but once you get the hang of it very easy and safe to use. It gets the job done maybe not the fastest way to get it done, but one of the safest.
