used Porter Cable 7424XP?

Hey guys - couldn't determine a sale section to post a WTB

I can't find a Porter Cable 7424XP for under a $100 anywhere

Does anyone have a used one they are willing to sell?

Amazon has it for $114.99 and free super saver shipping. That's the lowest I've seen.

Check on some of the Detailing forums. They are always for sale for $75 or less.

But do yourself a favor and get the FLEX.

That's not necessarily a favor. It depends on how experienced he is to machine polishing. You don't start off learning how to play golf using a professional grade of clubs when a mid grade will more than suffice.

What? The Flex is just better built and more efficient at polishing. It does have forced rotation, but it is NOT rotary. It is as safe as a PC. Like all polishers though they should be treated with respect.

Why are you guys so freaked out? It's not a rotary. It's just a better machine. And will outlast the Porter Cable.

It does turn down also. LOL.

No one is freaked out, it's called giving responsible advice. You state that the Flex is not a rotary, however, the Flex is rated in OPM's AND RPM's. RPM's as in revolutions per minute, which is exactly how a rotary's power is rated. Now the Flex is no rotary but with the forced rotation, it can do some damage if used incorrectly. It also has a steeper learning curve. You say that it is as safe as a PC. That is absolutely not true. I would love to see two things. I would love to see you take a Flex out to your car and make a video of you doing what I do with the PC in these videos. I would also love to see you open your car up to anyone who wants to try the Flex out on your paint. This is only if you believe what you've posted.

At the same time, I would allow ANYONE with a PC to come buff on my paint, including kids. I do that all the time.




One more thing. The PC is a much better built polisher than the Flex. I've had my Flex serviced 3 times since I bought the thing. Neither my PC-7424 or my PC-7424XP have ever required service and I've had the PC-7424 for years. Those things are bullet proof.

Park you car outside and leave a 16 ounce porterhouse in the glove box. I'll hook up your shine.

It is a responsible post. I'm not gonna argue with you. You have your opinion, I have mine. As a Detailer of over 20 yrs. I would not let any one buff on my car. It's not the buffer but the operator that makes mistakes.
My thought is to buy the better polisher with the ability to do more paint correcting as the operator gains more experience.
If you burn the paint with the Flex... You really should allow a pro to do it.
If your a garage guy that likes to play with his car? Get the PC.
And I've had my Flex for over 5 years with absolutely no problems.

My number one rule of advice when it comes to paint care. Never tell a guy to do to his paint what I wouldn't allow him to do to mine.
