Comments about Griot's Garage 6in Random Orbital:

After researching, in an attempt to get the Best tool for my money / use, I settled on the Griot 6inch OB (based on a Professional Detailer's comments). I followed the directions ( detailer and Griot's) and can not be any happier with the results of my efforts. This tool is so much better than the 30-40.00 OB's, the ease of use and ability to get in and around the funky curves, made me smile. the pads stayed in place while in use, and were extremely easy to clean up and make ready for my other car. Very Happy with this purchase and results.

  • PLENTY OF POWER

Cons

  • Heavy

Best Uses

  • Detailing Cars

Comments about Griot's Garage 6in Random Orbital:

This machine has now replaced similar machines from 2 other manufacturers. I use this machine to level clearcoats, remove swirls, and apply wax. The machine has more than enough power and will not bog down. The adjustable loop handle is superior to the simple post handle on other machines. The build quality is excellent and the switches have a solid feel. The only thing that will take some getting used to is the weight. This machine is heavier than my others but it is also much more powerful. A good purchase. Would recommend.

  • Q:

    I am thinking of purchasing this polisher but have a question about the hook and latch system for attaching the pads. Which surface does the polisher have (the hook or the latch) and which surface do the pads have (the hook or the latch) Thanks.
    The response from Panda makes no sense to me, hooks attach to hooks?

  • Q:

    Can I use this simply to wax my car because it takes so much time and effort to do it by hand? If so, can I damage my paint if I'm not a professional because of the power/speed of the item? I'm an everyday car owner who just wants the product to wax my car quicker but without damaging my paint.

      A:

      Hi John, glad to assist you! Yes, this is a good product to use to save time and energy while waxing your vehicle. The Griot's Garage 6" Random Orbital is one of the safest, easiest way to get perfect paint. It is the centerpiece of a complete car care system that's easy for beginners to master, yet still provides professional-level polishing and waxing. You'll achieve flawless results without the hard work. Polishing with the Griot's Garage 6" Random Orbital removes very thin layers of material (just microns), to reduce or eliminate these imperfections. Waxing with the 6" Orbital seals and protects the paint. The machine operates under low speed, low heat conditions, so there is no fear of "burning" through paint or removing too much material. It lays down thin, even coats of product for fast work and easy removal.
