abunda_amazon_reviews So one of the hardest decisions i have had to make to start auto detailing was what Dual Action Random Orbital should i get. Its tough getting started or even upgrading from a cheap one that you may learned on. Hopefully i can give you a little insight on this fine machine. With that said i do want to say i own this one and have around 6 months and have done some large time consuming jobs with it BUT i also do not own the other top brands like the flex, torque, ECT. To this day i have not looked back. I will start with the things i love about it. 1) The size and weight - it is a very good size in the operational standpoint. I personally do not use the screw on handle mainly because i change hands to often for it, i just have one hand on the black and the other around the vent at the end. But its very accommodating and comfortable not to mention i can get in the smaller areas on cars like under the mirror because i do not have a long tail end. Just because its smaller does NOT mean it is less effective. 2) Porter Cable as a company is a well tested large backing company. If i remember right they came around in like 1905 or so. like i said i did a lot of research. There is no to minimal maintenance to it. The unit is factory lubricated with enough high quality lube that it will last the life of the unit under normal use (commercial grade unit keep that in mind) and they only recommend you take it to one of their certified shops (every 100 hours of use... long time) so they can take it apart clean it properly and check for worn parts to ensure your safety. 3) Having the speed setting as a wheel is wonderful. I have used my friends for a short time i did a 2x2 square like a month ago (i think he had the flex but could have been the torque) and it was nice but long i felt like i was reaching and it had a digital display with + - buttons. My personal opinion is that after i spread the product at a low speed i want to shut it off get in a good position set it to a functional speed and start it up, as his always starts on the lowest speed setting and while its on you have to crank it up. All in all i highly recommend this buffer and love using it and seeing the results i get out of it. The bad 1) AS EXPECTED WITH EVERY UNIT NO MATTER THE BRAND is at low speeds it is a little tricky to control at first but its so slow its not a big deal or a deal breaker like i said its just the physics of these units. 2) the pad that comes with it is a cheap foam pad that i personally don't use at all and its just easier to buy pads and backing plate with a hook and loop (Velcro) connection so you don't have to use your wrench every time you change pads. Again a small detail and you can get these buffers with other packages and i'm sure the stock pad wont hurt anything its just your typical wax / sealant pad If you want other video reviews i would recommend looking up Chemical Guys on you tube not only do they have extensive how to videos and great products but they have many reviews of the Porter Cable 7424xp and use it a good majority of the time in their shop / Class so you can see what this unit will do.

Using this took me only 2 hours to polish then wax my car with this. From the variable speeds the way it does smaller circles because the dual orbiter inside leads for a quick and perfect finish on an all black painted car. I also enjoyed the smaller size I was able to use only one hand to apply adequate pressure on harder to reach spots on my hood.

I read a bunch of review and decided to give this product a try. I'm telling you, I can't think of any safest tool for buffering car paint. This tool is robust, easy to use, but forts of all... it doesn't leave ANY swirl marks on the paint.

For never using a polisher ever before this was definitely a beginner friendly polisher because I didn't damage the paint or make anything worse using it. Great price and great results.

Lite & Easy Mechine
I am 69 years old and for me to buff my motor home has been impossible, until I purchased the Porter-Cable 7424XP 6 inch Variable -Speed Buffer. I do not have the money to pay some one $450.00 plus to clean my motor home, so I took a chance and purchased my buffer and man I was glad I did. It is so easy and lite to use. I am now half way done polishing a 40' motor home and it looks great. I am using Chemical's from the Chemical Guys line of products as well as Meguiar's 105 & 205 compounds topping it with Meguiars Hi-Tech Wax #26. You should see it

I'm in love with it
3 years of use review: My family owned a second-hand car showrooms for decades and I had to deal with car detailing A LOT! I used to polish (buffer) car paints by hand. Considering the increasing rigidity of my joints, I decided to switch joint oil for electric power but I was concerned that buffering with he wrong tool was going to leave ugly marks on the car paint. I read a bunch of review and decided to give this product a try. I'm telling you, I can't think of any safest tool for buffering car paint. This tool is robust, easy to use, but forts of all... it doesn't leave ANY swirl marks on the paint. I worked on my old Subaru for 4 days to have the job done, but at the end I obtained mirror-like results by using this polisher. Great product!

REAL HONEST REVIEW
So one of the hardest decisions i have had to make to start auto detailing was what Dual Action Random Orbital should i get. Its tough getting started or even upgrading from a cheap one that you may learned on. Hopefully i can give you a little insight on this fine machine. With that said i do want to say i own this one and have around 6 months and have done some large time consuming jobs with it BUT i also do not own the other top brands like the flex, torque, ECT. To this day i have not looked back. I will start with the things i love about it. 1) The size and weight - it is a very good size in the operational standpoint. I personally do not use the screw on handle mainly because i change hands to often for it, i just have one hand on the black and the other around the vent at the end. But its very accommodating and comfortable not to mention i can get in the smaller areas on cars like under the mirror because i do not have a long tail end. Just because its smaller does NOT mean it is less effective. 2) Porter Cable as a company is a well tested large backing company. If i remember right they came around in like 1905 or so. like i said i did a lot of research. There is no to minimal maintenance to it. The unit is factory lubricated with enough high quality lube that it will last the life of the unit under normal use (commercial grade unit keep that in mind) and they only recommend you take it to one of their certified shops (every 100 hours of use... long time) so they can take it apart clean it properly and check for worn parts to ensure your safety. 3) Having the speed setting as a wheel is wonderful. I have used my friends for a short time i did a 2x2 square like a month ago (i think he had the flex but could have been the torque) and it was nice but long i felt like i was reaching and it had a digital display with + - buttons. My personal opinion is that after i spread the product at a low speed i want to shut it off get in a good position set it to a functional speed and start it up, as his always starts on the lowest speed setting and while its on you have to crank it up. All in all i highly recommend this buffer and love using it and seeing the results i get out of it. The bad 1) AS EXPECTED WITH EVERY UNIT NO MATTER THE BRAND is at low speeds it is a little tricky to control at first but its so slow its not a big deal or a deal breaker like i said its just the physics of these units. 2) the pad that comes with it is a cheap foam pad that i personally don't use at all and its just easier to buy pads and backing plate with a hook and loop (Velcro) connection so you don't have to use your wrench every time you change pads. Again a small detail and you can get these buffers with other packages and i'm sure the stock pad wont hurt anything its just your typical wax / sealant pad If you want other video reviews i would recommend looking up Chemical Guys on you tube not only do they have extensive how to videos and great products but they have many reviews of the Porter Cable 7424xp and use it a good majority of the time in their shop / Class so you can see what this unit will do. I want to say i have no affiliation with Porter Cable or Chemical guys and was not asked to review or given anything to review this is a REAL HONEST REVIEW. If you have any questions feel free to ask!

Great Product and Value
Excellent product and tremendous value. The PC7424 is legendary in the world of paint correction for entry to moderate enthusiasts. It's durability and easy of use are well known. It's not a forced rotation unit but it's also not $400+ however it does a great job at correcting even heavy swirls and paint damage such as the one show in the photos of our van. The results can be outstanding as show in he reflection on the hood of my S4 too. Heavy corrections just mean you move a little slower but again, if your just an enthusiast doing your own vehicles, what's a little time relaxing as you work. You will need to buy a velcro backing plate of your choice in sizes. Toss the white pad that comes with it out when you get it or use it for around the house, but not on your vehicle.

Game Changer for Amateur Car Guy
I wish I bought this thing years ago, I've been wasting my time with inferior results. As an amateur detailer, I watched a few chemical guys you tube videos, followed the instructions and I was off to the races. My 2010 Toyota with 275K miles looks brand new. It made quick work of everything, my boat, car, SUV. A word of caution is make sure you have the appropriate pads and compound. For my car with heavy swirl marks and oxidation I went claybar, med cut and then heavy cut for the tougher areas then polished and then waxed. If you're detailing your own boats and vehicles this is well worth the $.

Beginner Friendly Perfect Machine
This worked just perfectly for polishing and waxing my vehicle and I'm sure it will keep on working as well. I purchased the Astro 4607 5" PU Velcro Backing Pad on mine. This was easy to use and saved me a ton of hours instead of trying it by hand on just one polish and wax job for my vehicle. Using this took me only 2 hours to polish then wax my car with this. From the variable speeds the way it does smaller circles because the dual orbiter inside leads for a quick and perfect finish on an all black painted car. I also enjoyed the smaller size I was able to use only one hand to apply adequate pressure on harder to reach spots on my hood.
