    Half, depends how tired I am. Feel like I can get it thinner with the machine but more convenient doing it by hand.

    As a weekend warrior, time isn't really a concern. I prefer to take my time and go over the car by hand. I enjoy any time I can get to be alone in my garage to drink a beer and rock some tunes, so why not make it last longer.

    After waxing with a 3401 I maintain with spray polymer quick waxes. So my personal vehicles do not get buffed that often. They are also garaged which helps.

    Whenever you can use a machine to cut labor time, increase productivity and do it more consistently I'm all in. And it saves on product since it applies it thinner and more efficiently.

    I use the machine most of the time, my GG 6" and black lake country pad. It lays out a nice thin layer. I still use hand from time to time though, I love to wax "old school".

    Using the Flex saves so much time and helps make for an even application.

    Machine here too. Bought the PC at first, but after using for few hours realized that I need more power , and thanks to Autogeek.net, have it exchanged for Flex 3401 , which I like much better. I have heard that it's heavy and harder to stair than a Meguiars , but I already used to it, and like it very much.

    Tried waxing with a machine for the first time last fall and don't think I'll ever do it by hand again. Easier, faster, more consistent/ better results and you use less product.

    Re: How many of you use a MACHINE to WAX your vehicle?

    Ive used both, started with machine, but feel better doing it by hand. I think I use less by hand, as I can use a thinner pad and keep pressing it to get more out of the pad. If I do a truck i use a machine because everything is flat. I personally don't notice a big time difference.
