Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice buffing system I bought this buffer a few weeks ago and am using it to buff out waterborne lacquer finishes on small guitars. I’m still learning about the process of spraying, sanding buffing but this buffer seems like it will be great and save a lot of elbow grease. I’m using it with two different 3M compounds followed by a hand applied very fine swirl removing polish. It takes several Weeks to let the finish cure before you can buff it. So I am not yet sure how everything will Come together. One thing I might do is use a external router speed control to slow the motor down. It would be great if Ryobi made a variable speed buffer so the finish doesn’t get too hot. But I am excited to try this great new and beautiful tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to use I bought this to clean showers and shower doors and it works great and is easy to hold. However, my daughter put too much pressure on it and the foam pad detached. I cannot find a replacement part on this site or others specifically for this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and reliable I bought this product after reviewing many as I will use it more than an average consumer. I started detailing cars as I love doing it and needed the money during Covid. This can go for hours, comfortable to a woman’s hands, and gives an even coverage. I am very happy with my purchase and it makes the job easier and the finished product better!!! Ryobi Rocks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value I found this buffer to offer a nice balance when you palm you hand over the top of the tool. It allowed me to work evenly across the surface with just one hand. It did a nice job and my car looks great. A finish touch for me was to use a micro cloth to go over the just completed section. Work in small sizes works best. Sweeet!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Usefull tool. I've had this about 3 years now. So I actually use this to polish our soapstone countertop, it works great for that. I'm sure if I decide to start waxing my car again it'd be fine. Now that I have Ryobi cordless tools with the 18V one+ batteries, If I were to buy again, I'd go that route.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right tool I bought this about a month ago to help me buff out some damage that I did to my car. Not too big, not too small, just right. I truly enjoyed the machine and have already used it in a few other projects around the house. Trust me, you will enjoy this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Handle I've always used the larger car polishers in the past and never even considered a 6 inch polisher. After using it one handed and polishing two cars I'm thinking. This is absolutely the way to go being corded it's very light weight and does a excellent job.
