I've found that when applying wax by hand, i use way too much. Which means it comes off like ****.
I like the random orbiter my dad has, but i stll clean the wax off with a hand towel. When using the random orbiter, i'll go over it twice, once horizintally, and once vertically. I haven't used it on my car since last august, and i haven't been terrribly happy with my hand waxing. Just be careful with any machine, and don't use one that only goes in circles. Having a random orbiter is nice for doing finish work, and rubbing compounds, etc.
And using that orbiter on my moms 01 camry (read: flat) was soooo easy compared to my car lol....
