    Oh, and on that cord, I`m not so much worried about it coming undone under stress but rather that the connection might wear over time. Cords oughta last forever IMO (as the one on my oldest Cyclo probably will). If people find it a Feature, then OK!, lots of things do/don`t matter to different people

    EDIT: Ya know...if I didn`t already have a crazy number of polishers (let alone for a guy who seldom polishes ), I`d probably want one of these GG9 things myself. Though I`d *have* to have something in the 3" range..shame it can`t accommodate that (but I bet somebody will figure out a hack for it).
    I mentioned above that my old Milwaukee rotary had this feature. We ran them in a production shop 10-12 hrs a day, 6-7 days a week and never had as issue/failure with the disconnect. However, when the cords themselves wore out from twisting over time it made for a VERY simple cord replacement!

    As long as Griot`s did their homework on it I don`t imagine it will be an issue.

    I’m eager to hear more about the longevity of this new cord design. I’m also assuming this machine will have a lifetime warranty? Personally, the cord was a huge detractor for me with prior models. I’ve literally returned more than 20 prior polishers only because the cord wore out. Major inconvenience for me and my business. If this is the real deal, I’ll be ordering 10 machines very soon.

    Same lifetime warranty as the GG6 it replaces.

    The cord is also a chemically resistant rubber as well, so itís supposed to remain more flexible.

    The 25 foot cord option will be a larger gauge than the 10 foot cord, as youíd hope for a longer power tool cord. 👍

    OK, and that`s interesting about the Milwaukee; the ones I ran did *not* have that (gee, I`m dating myself again ).

    $150`s a good price for a name brand machine. I want(ed) one, until I remembered when my G15 was stolen, so were all my pads. I "need" 4 of each pad. So there goes another $150 lol. I`ll definitely have my eye on this when I have 3 bills to drop.

    I wouldn`t say the Boss 15 quiet w/ the gear wine they make, but is smooth & has awesome ergonomics....

    Recieved mine and did a quick polish on wifes Escape. Easy polisher to use for this senior driveway detailer. The only other polisher I have now is a Adams mini which is all I need to take care of our 2 cars.
    Thereís a place in the brain for knowing what cannot be remembered.
