Saw the title and got scared this just popped off after I just bought one for $110 from autoanything. Whew, decent deal. I just needed the polisher only though.

Yeah, I don't see the point in buying this when you can get a well reviewed dual action (random orbital) polisher from harbor freight for $50 with coupon code 52836942:

Just bought this a couple weeks ago and it's fantastic.

They sell different 6" polishing pads for $7 each, or you can buy your own set off Amazon/eBay.

As for the chemicals, you can buy whatever you prefer at your local auto parts store (e.g. Meguiars, Mothers, etc).

After everything, going the HF route will save you $40-60. I suppose the only reason to go for the Griot one is if you want the lifetime warranty.

The HF polisher is a great value and is solid. However, the Griot's handle is in a much better position for both comfort and applying even pressure. This is important for cutting compound, not so much for finishing/waxing. As you mentioned, the lifetime warranty is another important difference. For those who will be using a polisher on a frequent basis or hope for it to be the only polisher they ever buy, it may be worth spending extra on the Griot's.

With either model I would look into changing the backplate from the included 6" to a 5" and getting 5.5" pads assuming you're doing paint correction. Here's a good article [inmygarage.com] on why. I'd recommend the brand Lake Country for backplates and pads. They have a great product range to match the compound or polish you're using and the pads hold up well.

I've had the Griot's polisher for a few years, feel free to ask if you have questions.

If anyone is just interested in just the polisher, I got Autoanything to price match pepboys online price of $111. They beat it by $1 for their price match policy, so I got it for $110 no tax and free shipping. https://m.pepboys.com/product/det...1292/01036


I already have wax,polish and Lake Country pads from my last Griots I loaned to a friend. Also get a 5" backplate and 5.5" pads. According to Autogeek pros that is preferred over the 6" and 6.5" pads.

Thanks for all the great info here, but I think I'm going for the harbor freight on since I'm a weekend warrior just trying to get my feet wet. All I've done in the past is use the pad that comes with the cheapie turtle wax. Can anyone recommend which pads from harbor freight?

While it seems to be a good deal on the Dewalt polisher, this is not an orbital polisher like Griot's Garage one, and is not meant for polishing/waxing cars (though, from what I've read it can be used for polishing car's paint but can also easily ruin it if not done by a professional).

For that price, go with Lake County pads. Very high quality and not any more expensive than those. I've found that the Chemical Guys pads are OK too, but didn't last as long for me.


Yellow - High cutting pad, be careful using this. Only for really neglected finishes or paint that's in real bad shape.
Orange - Medium cutting pad, good for surface defects and polishing
White - Light polishing pad

More info. I suggest having Orange, White and Black pads at least
