    I review, disassemble, and inspect my 10 year old Cyclo.

    The Cyclo is still my favorite polisher. Mine is heirloom quality
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    Thanks for the responses. This is honestly my favorite all time polisher. I think it gets slept on.

    Re: Cyclo 10 years of Shine

    Hey! Just wanted to circle back on this. I wound up finding a used one on FB MP for $80 plus a little shipping. Other used ones were going for around $200 so I jumped on it. It was pretty rough upon arrival and OOOOLD! It appears to be an "orig" without the speed dial, etc.. Anyway, I cleaned it up, added a little oil and blew 'er out. I promptly ordered the low profile pad mount things and 8 blue pads. (the diff between the green and the blue is kinda confusing).
    Just used it yesterday to polish up my brand new black BMW X4 M40i before adding a layer of Gyeon Can Coat EVO (another purchase based on forum feedback). I really enjoyed using it and I have tried many many different polishers. I am just a driveway dad-detailer so nothing too serious. The car is brand new so it's not like I tested the limits but I found it to be easily controlled and a less fatiguing experience on these old shoulders than other polishers I've purchased and sold off. All this is to say, thanks for posting your video. I made my purchase solely on your recommendation. I have been aware of the Cyclo since back in the Porter Cable days but always dismissed it cuz it looked so, well, unrefined I guess. Glad I took the leap!

    Wow that’s awesome that you found an original like that! They really do last forever. It’s easily my favorite polisher.
