    I've seen a lot of positive feedback for the PXE 80, but again for the sounds of the scale of your job it's like using a palm sander to refinish a hardwood floor.

    Re: Transportable Cordless Polisher

    You could check out the Makita XOP02T. It's a cordless orbital with a free spinning mode that would be useful for machine sanding, and a forced rotation mode for powerful polishing. It's no rotary but it is a powerful tool, I have the corded version and it's very capable. However it is large so I'm not sure how transportable it would be in your situation.

    Re: Transportable Cordless Polisher

    The prices are prohibitive for me where I live, I am from Chile.
    That said, I've been looking at this polisher for a long time, made in Germany. Speed 500-3000 rpm.
    The price is tempting. And the same battery works for your entire range of cordless tools.
    With battery assembled it weighs 5.7 pounds
    What do you think?

    PS: Clearly the guy doesn't have much experience in handling the machine

    Re: Transportable Cordless Polisher

    Thanks guys, I ran across this Diavolo company yesterday during my searching. Has anyone tried their tools? They seem like a nice value but I'm not finding much on them. Looking at their 16V polisher

    Compact- something you can transport rather easily, I'll be taking it on a plane to help with a new paint job (need something for sanding and polishing) but will also be using it for some older cars needing attention.

    Cordless-
    I'll need something battery powered

    Rotary-
    Looking for an option that provides rotary polishing, as the main purpose is mild to heavy paint correction


    I have a few corded rotary polishers and a Porter Cable but now really looking for something compact and cordless. I was looking at the Dewalt DCM849P2 kit but I know there are more compact options out there, wanted to see what you guys have seen/used and how that's worked. Thanks!

    Just to clarify - you're looking to do a whole car with a compact 3" polisher?

    Re: Transportable Cordless Polisher

    No, this will be for localized jobs. Need to sand down a door for paint, do minor correction on another car. Idk though I’m thinking the Dewalt is more versatile and I can toss a smaller backing plate on for now, it has a decent rpm range.

    I can travel with the Dewalt, while not as convenient as the Flex I can still make it work.

    Not finding much in this Diavolo company so I’m back to Flex vs. Dewalt.

    Yes, I have their 16v rotary and a new d/a. The rotary is fantastic for headlights and small areas, and I picked up their flex shaft polisher use with it.
    I have only used the d/a twice, once for applying sealant and it worked great. I tried it for headlights and it seemed underpowered. I will try it for B pillars soon, and report back.

    Their shipping can be off, so I recommend using Paypal for the purchase.
