Answer: 
I have been using this type of sander for years. I put it through heck on a daily basis. It is the fastest and hardest working sander on the market..But you must buy a 5 inch sanding pad because it has a counter weight inside that balances the 5 inch pad on the random orbit. If you buy a 6 inch pad the weight ratio is different and it will break down. I prefer the 5 inch over the 6 inch size because it Read More

Yes, but you'll have to buy the backing plate separately. If HD doesn't have it, auto stores will.

Answer: 
I have not used a sander pad so I have no experience with it. I am not an expert in sanding. Keep in mind that this is not a rotary machine but an orbital. I don't know if you can use an orbital machine for sanding. Do your research on the internet or call Porter Cable Customer Service. I am sure they will be able to answer your question.

Answer: 
It comes with one polishing pad, instructions, and a wrench. I recommend chemical brothers hex logic pads and backing plate instead of the supplied one in the box.

Answer: 
Check your owners manual. The front section provides safety information and addresses the use of extension cords. The longer the extension the higher the rating (12 gauge).

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 72 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product I use this product for my detailing business. It does everything and more for what I need ! August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good value great product Very pleased with the orbital polisher, used the next day after purchasing and product performs as stated. Although I live a few miles from the local Home Depot, I ordered the polisher online and delivery was quick (3 days). July 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Emptiest box EVER The buffer itself is nice however mine came without the advertised tool, buffing pad, etc. I got a box with just the buffer in it. I contacted Home Depot several times to try and correct the problem with no positive outcome, no returned emails etc. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy tool Use the polisher all the time . Works well in hard to get areas June 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Porter cable orbital This product is very user friendly and dealing with Home Depot has been great June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Beginners Polisher Couldnt say it any other way. This is a perfect polisher for those starting up in the detailing business. Cant beat the quality of work for what its worth!! I recommend it! June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Orbit polisher Good dependable product perfect for my requirements June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy None of the things you need to compound are available in the store. Everything must be purchased on line. Don't waste you time getting a bonnet buffing pad. It just spins around and doesn't do anything. I guess they are expecting you to use the pad with the machine and buy a new one for each project. Porter Cable is going to the dogs. Maybe that is why they don't sell it in the stores. May 5, 2016
