    Re: We Need a Guinea Pig

    Well I bought the Adams cordless 15mm polisher which looks a lot like that one-- especially the battery. I like it, it has a lot of torque. The speed adjustment is the worst part, only three settings and defaults to Fast. But I`ve done a lot of spot corrections and wax applications with it, and the cordless feature is convenient for me. There is no way with two batteries that you could do even a 1-step AIO on a whole vehicle though.

    Re: We Need a Guinea Pig

    Had no idea Adams even had one. I’m really surprised at the price - $250 for machine & 2 batteries is pretty reasonable. I’m leery because it’s a 15mm throw though - my gut tell me no balls? How is it?

    Can you realistically polish 1/2 a car with 2 batteries? Milwaukee has a M18 rotary out now & Makita is coming out with their 18v DA.

    If two batteries are included, I don`t see why battery life would be an issue. The batteries for my 18V power tools recharge in about 15 minutes. If the run time is at least 45 minutes, I would think you would be good to go.

    They charge up pretty quickly. I`ve done a whole car with mine. It has decent power IMO. I like it for spot correction as well. Easy to grab and use.
