    I am considering getting a cyclo polisher. I have been doing all of my polishing/waxing by hand for some time and this tool seems like it would work very well. I have read some complaints (only 1 speed mainly) and the pros (well built, last a long time). I use poorboys polish and nattys paste wax. Anyone else have a cyclo polisher and use the same products? How well does it work with these? The vehicles I will be using them on are fairly newer (2010 and 2008) and are both silver.

    What all would I need (pad-wise). How long does a pad last?

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    Ryan

    i have a cyclo and like the machine a lot. the one speed complaint is somewhat handled by applying more pressure. the smoothness of the machine with the double pads is something to feel. it is not the best machine for vertical work and intricade spaces. but large vehicles like vans and suvs are ok with it. my favorite is still the flex. almost as smooth and powerful. just wish it handled smaller pads. just got my new favorite. the meguires g110 v2. i would recommend it to you for its versastility . all this come from a hoosier raised in noblesville.

    I suggest a Flex, besides the fact that the stock setup doesn't accommodate smaller pads it's perfect IMO. Relatively smooth operation, forced rotation and powerful motor so the machine doesn't bog down, smart design with speed dial at your thumb, variable speed trigger w/ lock, 3M adapter for small pads. You cant go wrong with a Flex 3401, I love mine!

    Do any of you apply natty's paste wax with this polisher? How do you go about doing this? Scrape it onto the pad?

    Never scrape the wax out of the jar. You'll end up with too much wax and on just one area of your applicator or pad. you just want to lightly dab and run the applicator or pad inside the jar.

    Stop whining and crying like a baby! Life sucks...deal with it!

    Well I ordered one, should be here next week

    What are your pad suggestions (what to use for specific situations)? I ordered an assortment plus the ones that came with the kit.

    Thanks!
