    God I hope not. Looks entirely too clumsy... could you even get remotely close to a side-view mirror... or even a bumper cover...? Maybe if you`re polishing hoods and trunks all day....

    Saw this live at SEMA- nice idea with no circular motion. Our thought was the same...large areas. The pads are quite thick so as long as you do not drop the unit, it does more around nicely. On aircraft, tour buses, boats, etc. it would speed the process and produce very good results. I don`t see the auto detailers jumping to it and price will perhaps come down a bit to get some to try it out.

    One of my local competitor uses something like this...I believe it is called an Astro drum polisher. I think the one he uses is pneumatic and has a longer handle.

    No, There will never be just one machine. It reminds me of the old orbital waxers from back in the day. Like this one. I use to love these things for applying wax. Heavy machines for sure.

    I finally got to watch the videos - Net Nanny at work blocks Youtube, and finally got the laptop at home. I`d say it`s got it`s place, but I`m not ready to buy!

    Re: Is this machine the future of paint polishing?

    So, its bee a few years since this topic has come up and I am wondering where this machine falls today? Is it worth it for detailing cars or not?
    Curious to see how many if any of yall are using this still or is it just for the Truck and RV details and alike?

    What is the name of the polisher? The Youtube videos does not work. Or you maybe have a picture of it?
