I am finally giving up my budget angle grinder type of polisher to a family member. Can't remember the make but its a bit like those silverline 180mm type ones. I don't like it due to a complete lack of speed control, very noisy so pisses off the neighbours and its not the best of units to handle.
Since I have been making do with an electric 240V halfords style posliher, which has served well but its just far to basic for my needs.
Those in the know, can you please advise on which of the following units I should go for? (I have emailed cleanyourcar.com a few times but not had any response).
I would prefer the following features from such a unit;
- precise and exceptional speed control options to avoid spinning too fast and provide optimum control
- quiet operation preferred (so I can start at 7am without bother neighbours)
- ok to handle and work with confidently (unlike a huge full on angle grinder)
- must be reliable!
- must be able to take the usual application/finishing pads that are sold online via the like of cleanyourcar.com for such machines
Meguairs G220 Dual Action (seems to be a popular unit, but I don't buy hyped up items if they don't live upto the hype)
Chicago CP8210 (seems very different and not that bad price wise)
