Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Johnson Cheap price = cheap quality
After first 15 min of buffing the buffer started acting like it was about to burn up speed was fluctuating high and low by itself then it jus quit thought it was broken already but I was in a bind and needed the machine now so I figured it's cheap so lets take it apart come to find out one of the brushes wasn't touching magneto somehow it had binded itself in the track causing it not to work after I fixed this its worked well

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sandingandbuffing A very good value
This buffer / sander seems like a nice value.
I have done extensive industrial sanding, buffing and polishing in the past. While this is not an industrial quality product it will certainly work well for the casual home user on the occasional home project.
It is a nice size and weight and is easy to handle. I have never used a "slow start" sander before but I got the feel for it very quickly.

I am comparing this tool to the makita version buffer polisher and considering that I am home user not putting the tool everyday work loads it performed nearly indentical to the makita except for one situation. If this tool is placed heavy hand presure with a 3M 9" Wool Pad and a heavy amount of compound this tool shows a lower power than the makita but in all other buffing situation use I found it just as nice of a tool.
I am very happy with the tool so far

With 11 amps I presumed that this unit would have plenty of torque at low speed however, the pad stopped very easily. I upped the speed to compensate which worked for a few minutes. For no reason, the unit went to full speed even with the dial set between 2-3 and flung polishing compound everywhere. This problem continued and I was unable to complete the job. Returning the unit tomorrow and not sure I'll purchase another power tool by WEN again.

Second chance for this baby. The first one died after five hours' usage, the second one died after 45 minutes. The sander hardly worked out of the box, and now I've lost two weeks on this piece of junk. With this particular Chinese brand, it's not IF it will fail, but WEN!
