    I used the G15 for about 5 hours today and the head of the machine definitely got hot as I was motoring around speed 5 for a lot of it. It was enough to notice the heat but didn’t seem to affect anything.

    Most of the M3 is flat but no pad stalls and ample power. Found myself wishing the trigger lock was somewhere else as it was difficult to find at times, but that should/will come with more practice (I hope). I’m still finding myself impressed at how smooth it runs with the Rupes 150mm Foam and Megs Microfiber pad.

    Re: Griot's Garage G15/G21 Long-Throw Orbital Polisher *Ground-Up Redesign*

    Broke my new G15 out to do the front end of my wife's car...basically everthing from the A-pillar forward, so fenders, hood, and front fascia.

    In short I'm really happy with it and it's a huge step up from my trusty old HF DA polisher I've been using for years. With only an hour-ish of use, here are my impressions.
    - Ergonomics: Holy cow. Big step up from the HF. All the available hand positions and the trigger grip go a long way to making this polisher much easier to use. It is also much smoother while running.
    - Weight: About the same, if not a touch lighter. However the great ergonomics make the weight easier to manage.
    - Nose: Louder than I expected, but still quieter than the HF. The sound is a different frequency and with my ear-plugs in it's almost silent whereas my HF was always audible.
    - Function: This polisher provides the same correcting ability at speed 4 as my HF did on 5. It made short work of the light swirls soft Toyota paint. I'm covering more ground faster with fewer passes. What used to take 5~6 now only takes 4.

    This is a huge step up for me and I look forward to doing my whole car in a couple weeks to get a real feel for the difference.

    Thought I had posted pictures, but I guess not... Correction was performed with the aforementioned pads and Menzerna 2500 and 3500.
