Porter Cable 7424XP Random Orbit Polisher

There are many Random Orbital polishers on the market but this Porter Cable excels at a reasonable price. Although corded, its size and weight in relation to its exceptional power is ideal. Its comfortable handle mounts to either side, making it easier to manage that power cord. It comes with a six-inch buffer pad, and accepts multiple accessories for polishing or buffing.

What sets this polisher apart is Porter Cable’s proprietary counter balance design that makes it super easy to handle. You can execute a swirl-free sanding/polishing action without fear of digging too deeply into your car’s finish. And you’re not spending a bundle for truly pro results when detailing your car. That’s the value I see. This Porter Cable polisher will give your car the love it deserves and preserve its finish for years to come.
