    New! Cyclo Model 5 Pro Series - Variable Speed

    New! Cyclo Model 5 Pro Series - Variable Speed


    Jason just asked me if I wanted another new polisher... my answer...

    Heck yeah!


    Check it out...
    The new Model 5 Pro Series is on the left with the blue grip...



    Except for the blue grip and the variable speed dial they appear to be identical...




    The variable Speed Dial is just down and to the right of the on/off switch...





    Conveniently located for adjusting with your thumb or forefinger, depending upon your hand position.




    At highest setting, it appears to to have the same power and speed as the original in the ON position. What I found interesting is that on the lowest setting, it operates very, very slowly... in fact I turned it on and left it sitting on the stainless steel counter in our studio and it pretty much stayed in one place and just wiggled a little...

    I'm going to switch this new Model 5 Pro Series over to the Cyclo Quick Connect Adapter so I can use the Edge Double sided pads with it as this really takes a machine that already runs smooth and vibration free and makes it even smoother while operating it.

    I love it with the new speed dial!! Cyclo must have heard all of you talking about it needing one of those!

    Could you find out it this new model can be run off of a modified sine wave inverter or, with the new electronic control will it require a pure sine wave inverter.

    Thanks,
    Stephenson

    I have never regretted buying my Cyclo but I really wish that Cyclo would come out with a DA with a single polishing head.

    Thread revival!

    Mike, since you started this thread, I was wondering what your follow-up comments are. My new Cyclo is on it's way to me and I'd like to hear some tips and tricks, likes and dislikes ....

    The two sided pads with the quick connect looks to be my first upgrade. As for ordering pads, the Cyclo colors are similar to CCS pads but not exactly the same. Do you have a guideline that uses certain color pads, most of the time? How about the two wool options? Are they worth using on most detail jobs or just an extra trinket?

    Bump for Mike (now that the Oktoberfest/Flex trip is done).

    My new Cyclo got a little workout this past week and I'm very pleased with the results. The ultra smooth operation is exactly what I was looking for. These almost 50 year old hands are happy with less vibration.

    I'd still like to hear what some of your favorite pad recommendations are Mike. I experimented with the Surbuf pads this week and had great results. In the long run though I'm thinking the wool pads would be a better investment as the Surbuf's just don't last very long.
