Default Buffers

Any of you use buffers for your detailing? Does everyone still do it by hand? I'm looking at goimg halves on a nice buffer with my dad, wanted to know what you guys thought of them. Also any brands to look for or stay away from. Thanks guys.

Do you want a highs speed poliseher or just and orbital buffer. I have a dewalt high speed polisher with a variable speed, this works great on appylying and removing waxes/ polishes, I use this on my car only when the swirls are bad havent used it for a while, but if you have a boat it can be used on that to clean it up. An orbital buffer is good for applying/ removing wax, it usally only has two speeds and porbably doesnt go over 700 rpm, anything faster like a high speed polishers increase the risk of burning through the clear coat on your car, our usally pretty safe with the orbital buffer, Wagner makes a good one. Use common sense when your going to buy a polisher, theres gonna be a huge quality difference between a $20 - $80, just think of how many times your gonna use it, and so fourth, thats my general knowledge on polishers and orbital buffers, good luck, i ll post some pics of my equipment.
