For Sale: Makita 9227CB...
I am considering purchasing a new rotary polisher but ideally I would like to sell my current Makita 1st.

The machine is still in an almost new condition despite having been used quite extensively. I've never put my machines on the floor and they always get cleaned after use, hence the condition they're in Bluebiggrin


A few pics...

Machine will come with original box + documentation, backing plate, spare brushes and wool pad (unused).

Looking for R1800 onco Thumb

Maybe I should sell it with a coat of Raceglaze Black Label for added value. I can also upgrade the screws and allen key bolts to stainless steel items if required Rofl


And yes, I gave it a pretty thorough cleaning today...OCD I know Bluebiggrin

Being new to detailing, I have read that it is easy to cause damage to your car if you dont know how to use these machines. How difficult is it really and how do you go about learning the correct way of using these machines?

Rotary polishers have a bad name in so far as causing damage when used in-correctly.

Sure if you are silly with the machine and ignore some of the golden rules you can damage your paint, but by and large damage is a result of carelessness, rather than the machine itself.

If you work slowly and pay attention to what you are doing you should be fine. Small things like keeping the pad flat, avoiding edges/corners/ridges and keeping panel temperatures in check are the most important.

I usually tell guys just learning the machine to play with it using a soft pad, finishing polish and low speed (setting 1 or 2) until they get a feel for the machine. Using the above mentioned pad/polish/speed combination it is highly unlikely that you will cause any major damage, even if you got totally carried away Thumb

Festool I think...Just waiting for the latest pricing before I bite the bullet Icon9

Some time ago I almost bought the small Flex rotary to complement the Makita for use on the side panels and vertical surfaces. Having seen and felt Nic's Festool since then, it makes more sense to have 1 machine that fills both roles well rather than 2 separate machines that need to be interchanged mid detail Thumb

The Makita is not really all that bad on vertical surfaces like doors, etc. When doing multiple passes though the weight really starts to make itself felt, especially when you've been lazing around almost all winter Bluebiggrin

RE: For Sale: Makita 9227CB...
Righty gents...With my new Flex being delivered tomorrow I think it is time to put the Makita up for sale.

Price is negotiable and if there are no takers I may just keep it as a backup machine Thumb

I know this thread is quite old, but is this still available? I would love to own a rotary but can't shell out the R3 for a new one at the moment.
