    Car Cleaning Kings,

      It'll work, but you usually get what you pay for.

        I would tend to agree with both of these statements. I have found that things from HF don't tend to last really long, but on the other hand, it is only $60 so even if it dies in a year you aren't out a whole lot.

          harbor Freight power tools tend not to be worth their money..... go to a pawn shop or CL and buy a used Porter Cable/Bosch/Dewalt/Makita/Milwaukee etc you'll be glad you did.

            Lets get one thing straight before you make a purchase: thats a rotary polisher and is a totally different tool than a porter cable orbital polisher. The stories you hear about people burning through clearcoat and damaging paint come from those types of polishers that create a lot of heat.

                I buy HF, but only for odd tools, and dont expect them to out live me. Craftsman for all the mandatory tools.

                I own a Porta cable, and I had to replace it with in a year (4-5 uses). The inside of the bearing flew out, the wheel almost took my head off.
                Replaced no questions asked. I wouldny buy anything less, however.

                  Don't expect to find one there though. Your best bet for a cheap one is a clearance buy at home depot or lowes when they randomly stock them.
