I've had great luck with my 1st generation Porter Cable 7424 dual action polisher. Many here know how faithful I am toward the newest generation Porter Cable 7424xp but "Houston, We Have a Problem
A few weeks ago my son-in-law Tom and I attended the PoorBoy's World detailing Weekend
at their warehouse in West Nyack, NY. We had a great weekend I surprised him with a brand new Porter Cable 7424xp polisher I bought from PoorBoy's World before we left on Sunday.
Tom's only put about 4 to 5 hours on this new machine prior to today. About an hour into polishing his new Jeep, sparks, smoke, and a bit of flame came out the vents!!
....... Say it ain't so!!!
Not what I would have expected from a quality machine.
While every manufacturer experiences defects and failures I'm a bit put back by this experience.
I sent Chris, Pockets, at PoorBoy's World a private message a few hours ago and I'm waiting for a reply as I'd like them to replace it....
