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 John Great value!
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.

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by MightyDisappointed One of my most disappointing purchases ever
It's hard to rate a product you can't even get to turn on when you pull it out of the box. But that's what my Porter Cable 6 in. Variable Speed Random Orbit Polisher did--or didn't do. What is it with companies now? Have they forgotten the Japanese eating our lunch on quality just twenty years ago? The Japanese car industry scared the heck out of us, and we got better. Do we need the same thing to happen with hand tools? I wish I could tell you how I shined up my trailer with it but I can't.

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.

Very nice machine. Should come with a hook and loop backing rather than a pad. Used it to buff out a 5th wheel trailer and worked well.

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.
