Overview

This 21-millimeter throw polisher weighs about 5.9 pounds. Very intuitive, very well balanced, low vibration, has the nice little platypus head on it, so it’s easy to control.

Goplus polisher comes with a six-inch backing plate. It also comes with the Allen key to be able to remove the six-inch backing plate, a set of brushes, so if you need brushes in the future, you can do so. It also comes with a D handle on it.

It doesn’t come with any fancy bag, but it’s a nice cheap car buffer. Goplus comes with a 6-inch backing plate, but if you want it to go to a five-inch backing plate, we found that the five-inch backing plate by Griot will not fit this machine, as well as a Rupes 5 inch backing plate. The only backing plate that will fit this machine is the Torq 22D five-inch backing plate.

950 Watts, very well balanced, low vibration. It’s got a trigger and it also has a locking button. It has features very much like the Torq 22D and it’s got a digital display.

The digital display will show you you are running this machine. Just like the Torq 22D. If you’re working in direct sunlight, outside doing paint correction, it’s kind of hard to see that digital display because of direct sunlight hitting it. But this cheap car buffer got a led light bar that lights up to tell you what speed you’re running. All of these little led bars will light up and tell you what speed you’re in. That’s nice. If you’re working in direct sunlight, you can’t lead to a digital display. You can see that light bar going across.

Its power is not as powerful as the Shurhold 3500, even though it’s got 50 more watts, it’s got more power than the Griot’s G15 or the Griot’s G21. It certainly has a lot more power than Rupes and it’s absolutely amazing for people in really tight budgets.

Overview

What comes into the kit?
A nice carrying case with the shoulder harness clamps with a handy carrying case for the handle, rubber grommets, the extra carbon brushes, Allen key, and hex bolts for the handle. There is a spacer to give you a little bit of breathing room between the shroud and the backing plate, instruction manual, and the warranty card for the one-year comprehensive warranty.

A nice carrying bag for the polisher and many other things has one larger pocket on either side and three pockets on the inside of each end of the bag.

The polisher itself has 21-millimeter throw, 900 watt motor and soft start trigger with lock. It has the 6 speeds speed dial with a larger, easy to see numbers for the speed setting. The speed dial provides great tactical feedback, so you’ll definitely know when you’re switching speeds. There is a soft grip platypus head handle on top of the polisher and a great soft-grip handle for the trigger. Heat escape, dust vents, high-impact plastic cover. This affordable polisher has a soft start, so it doesn’t matter if you have it on speed 6, or speed 2 – it’s going to start up nice and easy for you. The motor is quite quiet, the vibration is minimal.

The six-inch pad and backing plate are what it was made for, so if you’ll decide to swap to a five-inch pad and backing plate, you’re going to get a little bit of a wobble. But once you get up to speed in between two, two and a half and three, and you get it up to speed, that wobble will go away, especially when you have it on the panel – it’s a very nice, smooth, quiet machine.

Overview

It has a locking function so that you don’t have to have finger fatigue is push that button and it will lock it, and then, you can release the lock by hitting it again. It has a very nice oversized spindle and has two methods of using a handle: D-handle, which you can put on, either way, left or right or you have the option of using a side handle.

There are a nice oversized 7 inches spindle and the velcro pins and it also includes a slightly smaller 6 inches spindle. The smaller spindle obviously has less drag so you might want to use that at higher speeds. It also includes a very nice wool material that has a strap.

This affordable car buffer has 10 feet long power cord, so you don’t have to use extension cords when you’re using it.

So other than this is a great value, and I think you’re going to like this product. It works really well. I love the digital display which lets you know how much energy to use and you can remember that setting for the different materials that you’re actually polishing or sanding. I also love the lock mechanism here.
