Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Jason76 Works great, easy to use
I bought this polisher for sole purpose of waxing/polishing my vehicles. It is the third 10" polisher that I have purchased over the years and it is by far the best I've owned. I used it on my '08 Silverado this morning and had no issues with it at all. It will vibrate and shake a lot if you don't maintain good contact and it will stall if you apply too much pressure. Once I figured out the right pressure, it worked great! It's just like any other power tool, as long as you use properly and follow directions, you shouldn't have any problem.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by micromark I suppose it does the job
I guess this works - I was trying to wax and get a shine out of my three year old Honda accord which has never been waxed - maybe it is the paint job on my car - maybe I didn't use the right Turtle wax - maybe too much oxidation - I didn't get the gloss shine I was looking for - but this is certainly cheaper that the $100 one time wax job the car wash places want! Take my review with a grain of salt...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Ascender No scratches in no time.
I own a 2004 mid size SUV, silver/grey, I pride myself in taking good care of it, I have been waxing by hand 3 times a year, everytime I seem to spend more time on the job, trying to get rid of scratches on the paint surface. I purchased from Home Depot my RYOBI, 10" orbital Buffer and received it about two weeks ago, this last weekend I used it on my SUV, after waxing and buffing my veh. in about 1/3 of the time, I have been asked by friends and neighbors "if I had a professional body shop buffed and polished my veh. or if I had re-painted it". Those old scratches are gone, the paint shines as any new vehicle. The actual job was effordless, the all around handle made it comfortable and painless even when buffing the sides and tailgate, it's weight is just right to apply the proper pressure without making new scratches or swirls. I highly recomend it to anyone that in the past has neglected to take care of their veh. because it's too hard. "you'll be surprise".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Griff Solid value
I know several pro detailers that use Porter Cables and other high end orbitals, and they all say that it's dependant more on the user to get the results you want, and that most people would do just fine with a $30 orbital and mild off the shelf polishes.
The bonnets that come with it, are a bit hard to tie and keep on, but got a pair of microfiber ones from an auto parts store that use an elastic band and it worked out very well. I used a mild cut polish with a mild cut pad, and it worked out great on my 2010 Mitsu's black paint, taking out much of the big swirls and scratches.
Solid value and solid piece of hardware. Highly recommended.
