To polish your car?

If so, Mint DAS-6 or Concourse 900

Usually I'd say a Bosch or entry level machine from Bunnings but as Adz posted up, you can get quality specialized machines these days for affordable prices.

Good work. I've got the same machine (just rebadged with a different brand name). Search on youtube and watch lots of videos... there's a knack to using them. When I first started using it I was wondering to myself how the fuck Adz uses one all day as my arms were being vibrated to hell. After putting a bit more pressure down on the machine when polishing my arms weren't being throttled as much.

I found DA polisher to take ages to work even on our soft clear coats. Just a normal rotational polisher with good pads and good polish paste works much better just needs to be moved constantly and with minimum pressure. Though it might be just me :-)
