This machine is a wolf in sheep’s' clothing! It performs like a bigger more powerful machine but weighs less than five pounds. I am searching for this combination myself, powerful and lightweight. I think a few hours in the gym and few less carbs would work for me. Shurhold has a winner here with true random orbital buffers that will not burn gelcoat or automotive finishes. The quick change pads with Velcro backing will cut your maintenance time significantly. The results are impressive! The long 20 foot cord and the built in circuit breaker are excellent additions when waxing at an airport or marina. Our special Neal's Harbor model comes complete with a foam and lamb’s wool pad. Just add electricity and initiative.
