HI TECH HI BUFF 6″ VARIABLE SPEED RANDOM ORBITAL POLISHER
The Hi-Buff HB-15MMT Big Throw Random Orbital Polisher is a powerful and supremely engineered dual-action random orbital polisher. Dual-action random orbital polishers, often called DA’s, are known for their ability to safely polish paint without burning it or damaging body panel edges. Because of their unique polishing action, dual-action random orbital polishers create a high gloss finish that is free of circular scratches or buffer swirl marks.
All machine polishers use friction to remove paint defects such as scratches, acid rain etching, swirl marks and oxidation. The manner in which they create this friction is the result of how they move a polishing pad across the surface. Circular/Rotary polishers use a direct-drive action, which spins the polishing pad at a high rate of speed, to create a high level of friction. In the hands of a professional detailer, circular/rotary polishers are capable of quickly removing severe paint defects. However, in the hands of a novice, the high-speed spinning motion can overheat the paint or quickly grind edges to bare metal while creating circular scratches known as holograms or buffer trails.
Dual-action random orbital polishers move the pad in an orbital motion around the center of the machine, which is similar to how your hand orbits in tiny circles when you manually apply or remove wax. This movement protects against overheating the paint while making polishing around edges significantly safer. The combination of the orbital action along with the rotation of the pad (created by the oscillations) results in a truly random movement of the polishing pad. This prevents the creation of holograms and buffer swirl marks.
