Small 6 inch buffer cheap

I saw this "turtle wax 6 inch random orbit waxer/ polisher at a local store for a cheap and decent price. Anyone ever heard of it?? It is a single option, 3500 RPM buffer. It looks decent price wise but anyone know about its quality?

It will be on the weak side when comes to properly polishing vehicle. Get a proper one that will do the job for you like the PCXP 7424.

Does autotopia sell this?? I am not seeing it on the site. Where would be the best place to buy this?

Also, what would be a good polisher that you could recommend for me for say $40-100? I am not extremely loaded on cash currently due to buying myself my new Camaro.

Fantastic thank you! I have read many reviews on this PC in the past couple hours and read over how it handles and it looks like a winning choice to go with!

Now I have one more question how would I know what types of pads fit this PC and what type to get??

Sorry fairly new to the whole polishing game.

Go with the PC 7424. You will be glad you did. The clearcoat on our cars is ridiculously horrible. That isn't necessarily the manufacturer's fault, all cars in the US must now meet environmental standards, and one of those causes them to use a water based clear coat now on cars instead of the traditional oil based. Or so I heard. Anyway, that thin, water based clear coat will swirl up faster than anything. The solution: PC 7424, some pads, and a new wash process. But the 7424 is a must for brand new weekend detailers. Go for it and never turn back!!

I think I will be going with this one once I get the funds set up and all the the money for the pads and what not. Unfortunetly shipping to Canada is a *****... $40 to ship our here haha. Nearly 1/3 of the cost of the actual PC. But once I get the cash I will hands down get it! Seems like a reliable machine!

I'm sure you can find it there. It's a popular machine. You don't have to go with the link I sent.

Ya for sure true! I just need to look around! I haven't seen any good detailer shops or any for that matter that sell it today but I am going to keep exploring see if anyone has any in stock!

I like what the PC7424 does but it's (to me) heavy and by the time I'm done detailing my girl-hands ache like crazy. I'm looking for a lighter alternative. Pneumatic tools are lighter, and available but crazy expensive.
