Polisher advice please!

I am new to detailing and would like to purchase a dual action or variable polisher. I’m not at all professional, I would just like to learn to use it on my own cars. Please suggest what type to get, and a brand/model that’s moderately priced. Also what pads will I need?

Thank you you for your help!

Well it might not be moderately priced, at least not compared to the usual $150 or less Dual Action polishers. But it is well made and a treat to use.

Plus it is a TRUE Dual Action polisher if that is what you are after.


As for foam pads, I use Lake Country.
