Microfiber pads are actually more effective on an orbital.

Microfiber pad or microfiber bonnet? Someone asked a similar question the other day, I assumed pad, but turned out they had a 10" bonnet polisher so it all got a bit confused.

In that case you're probably better off just working by hand. A tool like that is pretty much only good for removing the residues from waxing, and even then I don't trust the quality of the microfiber bonnet that comes with most of them.

All i use it for is to put wax on and take it off. I got some different microfiber bonnets for it. Arent all orbital buffers the same they make a low speed rotation????
