Great tool BUT!
This is my second PC orbit polisher. The first one came with a hoop pad. It also had the attachable loop buffing pad. This second one came with a one piece pad. So when the buffing pad wears out the whole thing is disposable. Plus if you want anything other then the white pad you will need to purchase the hook pad anyway.

Good Upgrade
Bought the PC 7424XP is to supplement my 7 inch Milwaukee variable speed professional rotary polisher. The PC is lighter and easier to handle, plus the random orbit feature prevents swirl marks and burn thru. Polished and seal coated my black Q60. Then polished and waxed my navy blue C5 Vette. Very happy with ease of use and the results from this machine.

I purchased and used Hex Logic pads and recommend them highly, as they do not sling polish and wax all over the car unlike most other pads.

My only complaint is the machine does not have a flat surface on it's back. This makes it difficult to lay it down on the ground, or workbench and keep the pad upright so it says clean. I'm planning to fabricate a "U" handle and attach it using the threaded holes that are designed to hold the auxiliary handle.

The above complaint is the only reason I didn't give the PC 7424XP five stars. Buy it, you won't be sorry!

Heavy Duty, Powerful, Like New
This Porter Cable polisher is just right for polishing the fiberglass exterior of my Winnebago Adventurer motor home. This heavy duty tool polished and buffed the weathered jell coat of the exterior fiberglass shell on my 34ft motor home to a show room new luster. This heavy duty, powerful tool does not bog down or stall on the toughest jobs. I consider this a bargain tool and with the combination of CPO's WORLD CLASS CUSTOMER SERVICE, a no brainer bargain. I found out with my first purchase from CPO, that you can't go wrong buying from this company. CPO does stand behind what they sell.

Great Tool from an amatuers prospective
I bought this product after watching Chemical Guys use it for polishing on youtube. Purchased the attachements through them and followed their videos. It is a great polisher that is easy to use. Not too professional were one has to understand all aspects of polishing and handling.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
