RO buffers... P-C or nothing?


So, I had a P-C 7424 on my wish list for xmas, but I ended up receiving a somewhat generic brand 10" orbital buffer (my dad no doubt choked at the idea of spending $100+ on a tool to apply wax to a souped-up econobox... lol). Aside from the fact that a 10" pad is on the big side for detailing a compact car, is there any reason I should be hesitant to give 'er a go on the larger body panels?

It will work fine.

Can you post a picture or more info about the tool you have.

I have two 10" orditals and the 6" porter-cable. It may be good to have both.

You can never have too many tools to clean your car.


Thanks, that's kind of what I had assumed. But I just wanted to make sure that the cheaper tools weren't prone to producing motion or patterns that would damage the finish. I'll post up a pic when I get home.
