    I have used the HF DA and now I use the FLEX3401 with a black pad.
    Saves sooo much time over doing it by hand and lays a even very thin coat!

    HF DA. Less shoulder work and good even coverage.

    All machine here as well.

    I used to do it by hand, but found I was able to apply the product thinner, more evenly, and had much better coverage with a DA. Being able to do the work much faster is just an added bonus.

    I don't do it for speed or efficiency, it just works better.

    I'm able to lay a more consistent and even coat when I apply by machine...

    I sometimes do. Depends on which wax I'm using and the car and whether i'm feeling lazy. I think it gives you better coverage than doing it by hand.

    I normally do it with my GG 6" instead of my Flex.
