    NEWS FLASH!!!!! The new FLEX XCE 10-8 125 Corded Polisher is NOW IN STOCK!

    NEWS FLASH!!!!! The new FLEX XCE 10-8 125 Corded Polisher is NOW IN STOCK!


    Just received an e-mail from Meghan that the tool EVERYONE has been waiting for has ARRIVED!


    Here's the link


    FLEX XCE 10-8 125 Corded Polisher aka The SUPA BEAST





    This new version of the aluminum headed FLEX 3401 is smoother and quieter and without the aluminum head it's also cooler and lighter.

    Since receiving mine from FLEX back in July, it is my go-to polisher for every detailing project.

    I don't know how many of these units we received in this first shipment so if you want one, get it fast while they last.

    More....

    NOTE: The SUPA BEAST ships with the 5" backing plate and it will work with any 5 1/2" to 6" pads.

    My comment
    Using smaller pads on the 8mm gear-driven SUPA BEAST makes the tool easier to control and use and thus easier on you. Smaller pads also fit the different body panels common to modern cars. So starting out with the factory backing plate and using smaller pads is a great way to learn how to use and master the SUPA BEAST.


    Down the road, or if you're already a BEAST owner/user, then because this tool has so much power and ZERO pad stalling, my personal preference is to use the optional 6" backing plate and then I can use 6.5" pads like the Lake Country 6.5" Force Hybrid pads.


    Lake Country Hybrid Power Finish 6.5 Inch Pads



    Here's my article on doing the backing plate swap.


    Supa BEAST backing plate swap


    The Supa Beast will ship with a 4 7/8" backing plate. Let's just call it a 5" backing plate. There is an optional 5 3/4" backing plate, let's just call it a 6" backing plate. Because of the power this tool provides, for my time I'm upgrading to the larger backing plate so I can turn and churn larger pads. Larger pads mean a bigger footprint and that's what I want when tackling any car and especially large vehicles. It's all about speed, the amount of time needed to go from start to finish WHILE maintaining pro-quality results.

    I just swapped backing plates, here's some pictures to tell the story.


    Here I've removed the factory backing plate.




    Here's the part number for the 6" backing plate.




    Allow me to point out the new features that lock the backing plate into the rotating shroud for a positive lock-up.





    The new design has these tabs formed into the backing plate.





    These tabs LOCK into matching slots on the rotating shroud. What this does is it takes ALL the pressure off the 3 bolts that hold the backing plate to the rotating shroud. No stress on the bolts. You get a solid, locked-up attachment of backing plate to rotating shroud.




    Tighten down bolts.




    Ready to PLOW PAINT!





    The Supa BEAST!




    Lots of plowing to do....

    Heck, I'm going to let you buff out my car using it while your here!

    You can wash it first, then clay it, the use the SUPA BEAST on it and then coat !

    Lucky you!!!!
