    Which Buffer

    I ordered a Porter Cable and the company is currently out of stock. I was offered a Mequiars Buffer but don't know anything about it. Can you give me feedback on your experience, first hand knowledge, etc? Need to make a call back to them tomorrow and either wait for the PC or move on the Mequiars. Thanks!

    By the time you put all the other pad's, etc. with it the price is the same as the new. Thanks for the lead on this.

    If you bought everything I had new, it would be over $200.

    I wasn't complaining about your price however there is such a small difference in what new and used prices are based on your ad that I would prefer to buy new. The bag is a very nice addition but not something I need. Here are links below to new PC's that are priced close not including the bag which new is $45 used I personally wouldn't pay more than $25 for. Again hope that you don't take offense and understand my position on this.

    http://www.autogeek.net/poca746varap.html This is new w/free shipping and 2 pads for $129 granted w/o detail bag

    http://www.autogeek.net/porter-cable-pad-kit.html About the same as yours new again w/o bag for $169 and free shipping

    No offense, no worries man.
    Try Ebay. I bought mine on there and you would be surprised at how much you could save.
    I'll even give you the link to the same seller I bought mine from.

    BTW, both those kits are on backorder. It will be awhile before they get more.

    Thank you! I know both of the PC's are on backorder but will ship on Fri. The Mequiars are available and are being offered in place of the PC just don't know much about the Mequiars.

    I think there pretty similar. Just stay away from the UDM(ultimate detailing machine) model. They haven't been very reliable.

    Skip the PC and go right to the FLEX.

    I'm not seeing what the big difference in buffers are really. I had a 10" buffer and it was way too huge.

    I bought a generic 5" buffer from some auto parts store and it works great. Tell me what the big diff is in the pc or others.

    Big difference between the Flex and the PC. The PC bogs down when you apply almost any pressure on the machine, the Flex doesn't. More power and takes considerably less time to get the same results.
