Cordless Ryobi DA polisher
Does the job but you definitely need the bigger battery. And I would say at least two of them I had to use for of the smaller ones to do correction but it does have awesome power and balance

Good. Strong motor. Tool is more noisy than expected. What’s Good? 1. The motor resists bogging down unless you put too much pressure on the buffer. 2. The design is decent and having two ways to grip it is nice. The auxiliary grip can be mounted for right or left hand use. 3. The balance is good when the optional handle is mounted and a 4ah battery is attached. However, it is a bit heavy. 4. Putting a mounting point for the hex key on the handle is a good idea. It would be good to also add a mounting point for the wrench on the tool. Advice: 1. The foam on the included buffing pads made a crunching sound when compressed like you would expect from old foam. While it may be just fine, it’s probably a good idea to have some extra pads on hand before starting a project. 2. Have ear plugs handy, the polisher is noisy and it can vibrate a panel which makes it worse. 3. The polisher is not labeled “random orbit” and instead says “dual action.” The illustration on the box suggests it is NOT a random orbit unit. From what I’ve read, random orbit reduces the chance of creating a pattern on the surface that is being buffed. Be careful to move it around a lot when in use. Concerns: 1. The amount of noise from the tool makes me concerned that the one I have may have a mechanical problem. 2. The switch is hard to use on the unit I received. The spring and sliding mechanism require too much pressure. If not for both issues, I would give the tool a higher rating. Recommendations for Improvements: 1. The manual really needs work. It is difficult to read. There are far too many warnings and not enough real content; it is as if lawyers with no tool experience wrote the manual. Also, some information is ONLY found in the illustrations. You will find the way to tell which buffing pad is which in an illustration. 2. The switch mechanism needs improvement. 3. It should be quieter.

RYOBI 18V ONE+ 5 IN. VARIABLE SPEED DUAL ACTION POLISHER - This is one of my first Ryobi products and I can say I am impressed with he presentation and quality of the products line. I plan on using this buffer on my vehicles but it is a bit too cold in the Midwest to use it right now for that purpose. I did however use it to buff a wood table top and a desk top and it did a great job. It is not too heavy or awkward and there is NO CORD to get in the way. I really like that it uses the same ONE+ batteries as their other tools and the 2Ah battery I have seems to be "just right" to balance the tool.

We have an Motor Home and when my husband waxes it it takes several days because he has to buff it out. With this handy polisher the job gets done much faster and better. This polisher has an adjustment to select the RPM that you want to use. Since it is battery powered you won't have to fool with an electric cord when you are using it. It's light enough that you can use it without getting tired out. It comes with three pads; one for cutting, correcting and a finishing pad. This polisher does not come with a battery but works with other 18v Ryobi batteries. The polisher weighs about 3 pounds without a battery. Just a note it it looks like yours did not come with a yellow pad it is hidden under the cardboard in the back of the box.

Love the tool. It's simply amazing. It has has really good balance front and back and side to side, and feels effortless when using it. (I actually placed it on the top rail of a chair and it balanced perfectly (see photo)). There are rubber bumpers on the base of the tool - front and back to prevent scratching and slipping when the tool is set down. Even at an angle, the tool won't slide. The hand-holds are made of soft-grip rubber and feel good to the grip. Testing it out on the car, I first washed, and then clay-barred the paint which hasn't seen 'real wax' since it left the factory 4 years ago. I applied a good quality paste wax and got an amazing finish, super smooth and glossy, faster than I could have imagined. The wax went on easily at a lower setting (3500 rpm), and battery run time (2AH) was ample. Finally, I can put real wax on my vehicles (as opposed to car-wash wax) without killing myself! As expected, given the balance of the tool, the ergonomics and the light weight - the performance felt sure and steady while in use. The only thing I didn't like is the feel of the power switch which is a bit stiff. I'm not a pro, but I've used enough tools to know that I like how this one feels and performs and would definitely recommend to a friend.

Now you can wax and polish like a PRO! I have used a corded 6" and 10" orbital polisher in the past with good results. The problems I always had was that you couldn't adjust the speed, the pads would loosen while rotating and your dragging a dirty cord that could scratch your finish. The Ryobi polisher solves those issues and takes your car detailing to a higher level. I really appreciate the Velcro backing system that makes the changing of polishing pads quick and easy. The entire unit is well balanced with the battery installed and weighs about 4 lbs depending on what size battery you choose. I tried a 1.5Ah, 2Ah and 4Ah. I think the 2Ah was the perfect choice allowing for the most freedom while moving from the top of the vehicle to the extreme lower body panels and bumpers. I suggest doing one body panel at a time and from the top down (roof, hood, trunk, sides and bumpers) using a quality polish and wax. I had 1 bar left of battery life on a 4 door sedan. Even though it comes with 3 pads that can be cleaned, I plan on buying additional pads for future wax and polish applications. I am still new to using this type of polisher but feel confident that because of the fast set up, ease of use and incredible results I will be using the Ryobi as my go to polisher for future detailing needs. I attached some photos showing the completed finish on my 20 year old car. The finish is almost glass like and the water beading amazed me. I am happy with the way it turned out and I would look forward to doing it again as needed using the Ryobi One+ 18 volt Variable Speed Dual Action Polisher.

Powerful and well made
Waited all winter to get my hands on one. Finally got it! It’s to cold out to try it out on my car. However I decided to compound out my dining room table. It was really damaged and I was going to sand and renew it in the spring. The ryobi buffer did a great job with some heavy duty compound. It’s made easy work of brining the shine back. It had plenty of power. This is my first time using a buffer like this. I have the Ryobi 10” buffer and that’s good for polish but had no cutting power. As with a lot of new Ryobi tools this has cord like power. It’s easy to hold and control.

    Awesome!
    Owing a black vehicle, I often had swirl marks that would make me crazy. But, I check the HD site every day for 2 months to get this polisher. It is great!! It was fairly quick and easy. There were not any swirl marks when I was done! It does not come with any wax samples or anything. The push button to start was a little tricky until you get used to it. The results were great and it was easy to control and use!

      Well done
      I used to polish my car manually which was a huge pain and was very time consuming, I already had a Ryobi drill and therefore a battery so when I heard about this tool and its ability to use my battery I felt it was a no brainer. This polisher has made my job much easier and is able to easily handle the workload. As far as the battery goes i have had no issued completing any talk without having to charge the battery. Overall I definitely recommend this product.

        Great little polished
        I’m a Milwaukee fan boy....that being said, I do own a couple Ryobi batteries. I was in the market for a polisher that wouldn’t break my wallet. At first I was skeptical but the tool proved itself. Weight is fantastic Build quality is great Power is great Variable speed works like a charm Doesn’t drain my 4 AH Overall... if you’re reading this review then you clearly need a polisher... BUY IT

                    I actually like the buffer, I generally use flex cordless buffers which are more than twice as expensive and feel it but this is a great buffer for lite polishing or applying a wax. it’s probably a 8 mm throw which doesn’t give you a lot of polishing. Not sure about the switch but I can deal with it.

                    Good for the occasional DIYer
                    Great ergonomics, works well. If you already have the batteries like I do, and use once or twice a year, this is a great machine. BUT, it goes through batteries like crazy. There is no way on earth you'll ever get through even the hood with the larger battery much less the smaller one. Using the small battery it feels awesome, and no vibration. Not quite as balanced with the larger battery.

                        For the "professional home owner" this buffer works great. I wouldn't recomend it for a shop or person doing heavy paint correction or detailing for a living, but thats not who it was aimed at. Manage your expectaions.

                        A solid performer enabling cordless work for the pro-sumer.
                        This is a well-built battery-operated orbital buffer/polisher. I used to (a lifetime ago) detail cars for a living and still have multiple pro-level orbitals. This unit performs well for what it is Note that mid-priced corded units are about $200 - $225 and high-end units are well above $300 - $400. (clarification; this is compared to other similar high-quality pro and pro-sumer units, not those round 10" consumer toys) .Pros/Cons: Pros: 1. Battery Operated: the obvious advantage is untethered use and the Ryobi battery system. Great benefit. 2. Weight/balance. On par with mid-priced corded units. Even with a 4-hour battery, the unit does not induce undue fatigue. 3. Noise. Comparable to other mid-priced units. 4, Vibration. Comparable to corded mid-grade units and much better than low-cost corded units (such as harbor freight) 5. Medium throw: I did not see the specs on throw distance, but it is moderate, making it good for most applications and also easy enough for weekend warriors. 6. Controls - These are fine - not great but much better than some (more costly) units that are too fancy for their own good. 7. Cost - You are playing a small premium for the cordless ability over comparable corded units. 8. Uses all standard foam, microfiber or wool 5" pads. 9. Battery life. I did entire car, two passes, commercial cutting and then polishing. Battery still had two bars. CONS 1. The handle is useless (all polisher handles are useless) but it easily removes. 2. Power: This works fine for polishing, light scratch and swirl removal and light paint correction. Serious paint correction will be a challenge for this unit. This is not all bad, as most people would do more harm than good if the unit enable more powerful correction. Some corded units share this trait. It makes it harder to do damage. 3. Noise: While not louder, the pitch is a touch higher, but that is a minor point. 4. Battery placement. Most of the time the battery placement is not a problem and is actually a pleasant counterweight. Occasionally, in tight spots, it may be a minor issue, but will not impair usage or quality.. If you need an on-the-go polisher, this is an excellent choice. I am quite happy with the results. If you do this professionally, it will not replace your corded units, but it is not intended to. Body shops that do heaving cutting and correction will need more horsepower, as will pro detailers on tough paint jobs. For most other people and situations, this is a solid choice.

                          As a amateur DIY car detailer I was looking for the cordless feature in a car buffer. I already have several 18 volt batteries from other Ryobi tools so I decided to go with the Ryobi cordless buffer. My only complaint is the $200 price tag, but besides that I have NO other complaints.
