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




    This ground-up redesign takes the best of THE BOSS™ long-throw orbitals and incorporates many of the technical innovations of the G9. The project continues the collaboration with our new manufacturing partner with all components being exclusively designed to our specifications.

    For G21, we've taken the shape of the G9 and extended the body housing by 20% to accommodate a 'big block' 1,100-watt motor. This represents a 22% increase in power versus the previous tool. In the G21, the motor delivers a speed range of 3,000 to 4,500 orbits per minute.

    Among the more innovative features of this tool is its cooling strategy. Due to its long-throw articulation, the G21 could not integrate fan cooling in its counterbalance like the G9. So we engineered the G21 with its cooling fan integrated into the backing plate. This new backing plate technology was developed exclusively for these machines and is undeniably best in class.

    Balancing the combined weight of a backing plate, buffing pad, and the liquid on the pad translates into less vibration and a smoother running machine. For instance, microfiber pads generally weigh nearly twice as much as a foam pad so fine tuning is beneficial. Our innovative Weight Optimization System consists of three uniquely engineered fasteners, each weight-matched to a Griot's Garage pad type to ensure you'll enjoy best in class performance from these machines.

    It should be noted that long-throw polishers are not ideally suited for application of waxes and sealants. Their large throw tends to cure the wax unevenly with the exception of our BOSS™ Finishing Sealant whose formula is designed to comply with the heat cycling of long-throw orbits. The G8 or G9 are our most suitable tools for wax application. Also, the G21, when converted to a 5" backing plate and fitted with a BOSS Microfiber Fast Cutting Pad is our most aggressive paint correcting combination.

    *Powerful 1100-watt, 10-amp motor
    *21mm orbit throw
    *Precision CNC-machined steel counter-balance
    *Premium bearing construction
    *Fitted with BOSS 6" Fanned Orbital Backing Plate
    *3000 - 4500 orbits per minute
    *10-foot quick-connect 16 AWG SJO rubber power cord
    *6 speed settings
    *Speed dial accessible for right- and left-hand users
    *Constant speed control
    *Fully variable speed trigger throttle with trigger lock
    *Double-shot rubber platypus head-grip, and strategically placed all over tool
    *Shroud grip contoured to accommodate four fingers
    *Rest pads for tool to lay stable on its back
    *Quick access brush side ports
    *Includes 5mm hex key wrench, and replacement high-carbon brushes
    *Convertible to a 5" pad system with optional BOSS 5" Fanned Orbital Backing Plate


    PRICE: $249.99 - AVAILABLE 5/20/20

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

    Hello,

    What is the advantage of getting the g15 over the g9? Does the longer stroke make that much of a difference? I’m thinking of getting a new polisher am looking at the g9 and g15.

    Thanks

    $250 for these is crazy good price. For those that make money detailing cars, a single correction job is going to pay for each of these so no problem upgrading. For us home users, not sure it's worth it, unless they have the trade in program too and the difference is not huge. My G15 is still in fantastic shape.

    Might just be preference. One member put aside his BOSS G15 and is now using his G9 almost exclusively.

    I have a G15, but prefer the 8mm throw Flex 3401, but in that case, it's because of the forced rotation. I'd likely choose the BOSS G15 over the Griot's 6" with 8mm throw.

    Agree and same here. My G15 doesn't get much use so it's still in like-new condition.

    Polishes quicker and more efficiently. Cover more ground faster. G9 more dummy proof and can apply waxes or sealants. Most pros will have combo of both. Youíll definitely need a mini of some sort if you go with a long throw

    I like the adjustable weight with different pads but had no big issues going from MF to foam and having their be a huge difference. Would like to feel the smoothness overall difference

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

    How did the price of the 15mm go from $ 365 (BOSS G15) to $ 240 (new G15) for a machine that is advertised as better/improved? Sorry if I sound skeptical, but "better" and "much less expensive" are rarely used in the same sentence. P.S. Is Griot's still building their polishers in China?
