Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nothing Wrong The Buffer Itself There is nothing wrong with this buffer it does exactly what it is suppose to do. The problem is the bonnets, unless you know how to tie them securly on the buffer they are worthless. To resolve this go to you local auto parts store (Autozone) and buy the 6 inch micro fiber bonnets they have elastic around the edge and will stay on they are only about 6 bucks for 2 bonnets! Problem solved!!! All these people put down the buffer when all they have to do is get some good bonnets. I used it on my boat to clean and polish the hull and it did a very good job!!!! It is small enough to get in tight places where the 10 inch model won't. If it came with the elastic bonnets I'd give it an excellent rating for value. October 18, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great time and energy saver Ok, after reading some of the poor reviews I was a little hesitant about this purchase but I bought it anyway because the price was reasonable. The complaints other reviewers had about the bonnet flying off....true. But, if you read the instructions on how to properly fit the bonnet it will stay on for longer period of time. Its not easy to do but you have to pull the string around the pad as tight as you can, use a bow knot, THEN you have to curl or hide the knot underneath the bonnet so it doesn't show. This will keep your bonnet on much longer. OR, you can do what I did, I bought Turtle wax 5"- 6" microfiber bonnets, 2 in a box for $4 at W-mart, they have elastic and fit perfect and will not come off while buffing. So, great buffer, just replace the bonnets. Its like when you buy a circular saw, you know you're not getting the best blade. Good Luck May 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Well I'm old (78) with arthritis but needed to wax the car and bought this unit to save doing it by hand. It worked great. It's easy to grip and not to heavy and the job got done quickly. I'm sure I'll find other uses for it but am very pleased so far. June 3, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Accessories fail The product worked fine with the pads supplied with the device. When I went back to HD to buy more they only had pads that were designed to fit a buffer from 4-7 inches, not just for the 6" buffer I purchased. I bought three packs and each one I used tore or got caught in the center stopping the buffer from turning. There was too much slack, not a tight fix as the original ones. I took them back, was reimbursed, and later spoke with an employee who made suggestions and generously gave me a pad from the floor model. I have yet to try his suggestions on a new set of 4-7" pads (rain) but as always was pleased with his service attitude which is why I go to HD first instead of going down beLowes. March 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works great with one exception The TIE ON buffing pad. Because of it's rotational speed, the tie on pad that comes with it (or ANY tie on pad for that matter), will fly off in just a short period of time. Very aggravating! I solved the problem by taking the sting off and replacing it with elastic, tied the ends together and it now works like a charm. You can buy 2 1/2 yards of elastic (apprx 1/4" size) at your local sewing or five and dime store for around $3.00. Makes a HUGE difference. ''' OR you can purchase 6" bonnets with elastic bands like Turtle Wax bonnets. Other than this problem, I'm quite happy with my purchase for under $25.00. August 3, 2011
