The best buffer that I have come across is the Cyclo. Its a dual headed buffer and it is so each to use. There is zero vibrations and the ease of operation is incredible. I have two of them and I would never buy another buffer again. It is a bit pricy but remember that saying that you get what you pay for. I have one that is 10 years old and is still running perfect.

I have the Model 5 and the Model 5 Pro. The pro is nice because it's variable speed so you can change up the speed.

Chicago Electric DA from Harbor Freight. $50 with tax after I applied the 20% off coupon. Thing is a beast! Took all the oxidation out of my boat and I'm now using it for a little paint correction on the cars. Don't use the HF pads. They are really crappy. I use Hex Logic pads from Chemical Guys.

I have a groits garage and love it. I probably would have gotten a HF one but bj's was having a sale that made it the same price as the HF one so i jumped on it. If you are only doing yearly buffing/waxing go with a single pad 6" da. if you are going to be doing it every weekend the cyclo is worth looking into.

Nice steal! I would have done the same for that price.
