Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 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. June 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 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.
