Absolutely brill for the money. Seems sturdy. I bought a multi pack of pads from amazon that just went straight on. In fairness i only used 2. I just gave my pickup a mega good wash first then used the polisher with autoglym super resin polish.
Got lovely deep results.

I saw this on the previous hukd deal. Perhaps it could be of help in terms of pads. From what i've read is that this polisher has a 7inch backing plate, so you need to get an adapter to a 6 inch backing plate or m14

@goldennugget1@erk and all...

I've lost a few days researching and reading this post and ended up getting...

1. The DA Polisher from Argos for £40

2. 5" Maguires backing plate from Amazon. £16 but I got a warehouse return for £14. The 6" one is too big and prob will stall easily. Smaller pads are better to get at more areas. I'll start with 5" and another time splash out on a 3"

amazon.co.uk/dp/B00PYBHONG/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apa_i_fHM0Eb9Z4WFB8

3. Set of Hex Logic Quantum pads...

Orange - Medium cut to use with compound

in2detailing.co.uk/chemical-guys-hex-logic-quantum-orange-medium-cutting-pad.html

White - Light polish pad to use with polish

in2detailing.co.uk/chemical-guys-hex-logic-quantum-white-medium-polishing-pad.html

Black - To apply wax but could do this step by hand

in2detailing.co.uk/chemical-guys-hex-logic-quantum-black-finishing-pad.html

Total with shipping for the above three was about £33.

4. Pre DA bits n bobs

- Fallout Remover - Never heard of this before but used to clean of tar and iron particles. Also good to clean alloys. Use this before initial wash and definitely before you clay bar. For use mostly around lower areas where it might get tar spray.

amazon.co.uk/dp/B00Q2RJ6KA/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apa_i_mOM0EbGGEYS2Z

- Clay Bar - After washing the car just use this with some fresh soapy car wash solution. Rub it over the body work and you will feel the resistance on the surface hp smooth as it lifts up particles

amazon.co.uk/dp/B07CWNDD3W/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apa_i_DPM0EbY8AYSVN

5. Compound Polish Kit

Ideally you want a 3 step kit. So cutting compound then polish then wax sealant. The two I've seen good reviews are...

Menzerna - £29.95 on ebay:

ebay.co.uk/itm/274359991994

Or Maguires gets great reviews. £40 from Halfords with a selection of microfiber cloths:

halfords.com/motoring/paints-and-body-repair/scratch-repair-and-paint-restorers/meguiars-ultimate-paint-kit-442973.html

6. Other Bits n Bobs...

Dony forget a bundle of microfibre clothes, a decent cleaning mit for washing the car and maybe also masking tape to mask off black trim as easier to mask off than try to remove compound, wax etc that gets on to it.

Worth mentioning it's usually £50.00 plus delivery
Been waiting on it dropping down, heat!
Used mine earlier, brilliant for the money 😁
Thanks OP been waiting for this to drop down in price again.
Great deal. Showing out of stock for delivery now though.
Can this take normal backing plates? I see some answers to the questions on Amazon saying it's a different thread?
Ordered thanks
going to buy one soon recommended by friend
Is it good guys? I’ve never used one but have a whole lot of time on my hands could give it a go

Looks good. Why 2m cable though.. that would do my head in honestly. Cable, IMO, needs to be 5m. Throw the cable over your shoulder and nothing touches the paintwork and no extension lead at your feet

Yeah your right now you mention it. Didn't seem like a problem though. I used a light extension that I kept moving around but 5m would be mint.

It's a decent machine and wont burn the paint off your car,
makes it so much easier than by hand.

What we all driving here? I have a Honda Accord.
Received this at Christmas but haven't used as I've no idea which backing plates or pads to buy. Can anyone help suggest any? Will have a look @medium_eddie suggestion too.

Because they built it to a cost point, electrical grade copper is expensive so they stick a shorter cable on it. Same issue with cheap corded vacuum cleaners like vax

Yes but if you want a cheaper option visit ebay or if your in no rush buy them from Wish in China,
most of the people selling them in the UK buy them from there.

You can get an adapter from ebay so it does take all backing plates.

No that's for a drill you need the backing plate with threads on it.

What cutting compound/wax are people using? All the info online seems to be from detailing geeks which is overkill for the work van
I have preferred one any want to use it purely for outing wax on my car, any suggestions? It seems a 5 inch plate is the way to go, do I use I pad to put on the wax and another to remove it?
