They have upped the max. OPM from 6,000 to 6,800, and gave it a more powerful motor so that you will get the same great results, just faster. They have also given it a more durable power switch and tweaked the ergonomics make this polisher more comfortable which gives you more control over the tool. So if you are in the market for a great polisher you can't go wrong with the new and improved Porter-Cable 7424XP Dual Action Polisher.

Lake Country Polishing and Buffing PadsTo get the most out of your Porter-Cable 7424XP Random Orbit Polisher check out Lake Country Polishing and Buffing Pads. Lake Country has the CCS Pad Design which is manufactured only by Lake Country. This foam pad technology remarkably slows the rate of the polish absorption which allows you to use less polish longer for more even results. With your basic foam pad, polish is absorbed right into the foam rather quickly, instead of leaving the polish where it belongs. The CCS pocket design protects your paint from heat from friction. Every CCS foam pad features a Velcro brand, Hook and Loop back which will allow you to securely place your foam pad on the backing Plate.

How To Shine Up With Car Polishers

Getting your car to shine may seem like an easy task, but once you factor in the amount of work you'll need to do, the attention to detail you'll have to pay, and the importance of doing it right, you may feel a bit discouraged. After all, shouldn't it just be as simple as wiping on and off some wax? While doing it yourself with affordable polishes may seem like less work and hassle, it can actually be more of a problem than it's worth. So how can you get your car looking its best without worrying about time, effort, or instruction? The answer is simple. Start out with the tools you need to make it happen and then learn how to properly use them. Not only will you save money, but you can also save time.

The first step in getting your car at its best is to invest in a good car polisher. These power buffers and Car Polishers work gently on your car to produce a smoother, sleeker surface that looks great and adds beauty. Tools-Plus.com offers a great selection of Car Polishers from top brands like Makita and Porter-Cable, including the Porter-Cable 7424XP Car Buffer with variable speed and random, swirl-free polishing action.

Once you've found the right Car Polisher, it's time to move on to finding the right polish. Choose one that offers a light or mild abrasive and leaves your car surface looking shiny and bright. Then, its time to slip on your gloves and safety glasses and get to polishing your vehicle. Following the directions on your polish, use your car polisher and buffer to create the beautiful look you want while keeping some of these tips in mind:

  • Tip #1: Be sure that your care is totally clean before you begin to polish. Give it a good wash at home or at the car wash. Also, don't be afraid to claybar it before polishing. Any sort of dirt on the car could cause even more scratching, so pay attention to the cleanliness of your vehicle.
  • Tip #2: Don't let the pad or buffer drop. Once it hits the ground, you're done with that pad until you wash it. Even if you think you didn't get any dirt or debris in it, it could still be stuck in there and could scratch up your paint once you start using it again. Keep an extra pad on hand and if you do drop it, swap out.
  • Tip #3: Apply the polish to the pad then smear it on the car before starting the Car Polisher. If you load the polish on the pad and turn the buffer on, you'll soon be wearing it.

Review for Porter-Cable 7424XP Car Buffer / 7424 XP Polisher
By Donald from Fairhope, Alabama US on November 30, -0001
I recently ordered a Porter Cable 7424XP polisher and Lake Country pads. The price quoted was very reasonable, the products were exactly as ordered and the delivery was very timely. I only got to use it once before coming to work for 7 weeks straight (I fly helicopters in the Gulf of Mexico), but it did a fantastic job on my wife's car and performed better than I expected. I am very happy with the entire experience and want to thank you for an honest, forthright deal.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
