    Worth upgrading?

    I have the 1st gen 21. Are there enough improvements in the mk2 to warrant upgrading to that machine?

    Re: Worth upgrading?

    How many vehicles are you polishing annually?
    Beware of those giving suggestions without evidence of their results.

    ^ This. Plus, can you justify the purchase? If so, go for it.

    Re: Worth upgrading?

    My 21 is not that old so it might fetch a decent price if I sell it so the cost to trade up may not be all that much. I only do 10-15 vehicles a year & my boat twice. But I like working with good tools which is why I'm wondering if the gen 2 is improved enough to go that route or keep the one I have

    Do you require 30% more power?

    The better way to probably phrase this: Do you find yourself using your LHR21ES and wishing it had more power? Do you find it difficult to maintain pad rotation while you're working?

    If you answer "yes" to those questions it would be worthwhile to upgrade to the Mark II.
