I just recently decided to broaden my horizons when it comes to detailing and bought myself a rotart polisher. Thing is, I Got In The Zone, and got one from AutoZone, and it happens to be a Great Neck. I know they're not the BEST brand in the world ;-), but I've had pretty good luck with their hand tools and electric stuff, so after my $20 in points and a military discount I picked it up for less than $50. NOW, I've spent all day arguing with a co-worker that it wasn't a good purchase. He's more interested in purchasing a D/A, but we spend the better part of 2 hours arguing that the Great Neck wouldn't work. He says, Using meguires Ultimate line, with Lake Country pads, on a Great Neck will not have as quality of results ad the same pads and product on a Flex/Makita. This makes no sence in my mind. The rotory, from what I understand, SPINS THE PADS, no orbit no nothing, it just spins. So if my Great neck has the capibality of spinning the pads, at the same RPM's as, let's say a flex, and using the same product; how could a more expensive, brand name polisher creat better results? It just makes no sense to me?
