Thread: DeWalt 443 Burned paint?

Cyclo gets the paint warm also. Anytime you have a machine rotating/orbiting that quickly, you are going to generate friction. Add that to paint that might be warm already, or the heat from the polishers electric motor. Maybe next the Cyclo will not be considered a polisher.Too Many ads?

With my PC, the surface gets fairly warm if not "hot" sometimes depending on speed, pressure and how slowly I move the buffer.

Wow, thanks for all the help! I really like the DW443, it doesn't vibrate much and its speed goes higher, heavier duty motor that doesn't bog. I love the PC, as well but since I dont have it any more for comparison, I will stick with the DW."Treat every car as if it was your own"

My pads have recently been melting to my backing plates. Went through 2 in 3 weeks. This kinda sucks. Maybe I should back off a little.Carvista Inc. - Asper School of Business

I just had to edit two posts in this thread, so try to keep things civil guys. Both posts were borderline personal attacks, and were completely unnecessary.

You cannot EASILY purchase the PC in Australia, so I got a DeWalt DW443. It's been the best detailing purchase I ever made. It works brilliantly. It does get warm to hot when in use, so it's not unusual or a problem... You can always spray a bit of water on the area if you are worried about burning the paint, but it will not happen.
