My mark 1 has a tendency to fall on it's side all the time no matter how careful I am. I might just steal their idea and install rubber feet on the back of mine.

    The longer cord is also nice, but I always use an extension cord, so for me it would make very little difference.

    Progressive trigger... maybe if I used it I could see the benefit but really, I want the machine to run at the speed I set it at. 90% of the time I use the trigger lock so I don't have to squeeze that thing for hours at a time. I remember the first car I did, I did not use the trigger lock. After finishing the compounding and polishing I could barelly open and close my hand. Learned a valuable lesson that day

    The extra grip spots they added, like on the Griot's Boss machines are nice, but again, not enough to justify a 500$ expense.

    Of course if my machine dies and is not repairable, I would grab a Mark III as a replacement.
    It seems like they made it more like the Griots Boss Polisher.

    Pretty much Griot's made a few good improvement on Rupes' original design. So they took advantage of it and copied them on their machine

    LOL when you said Hi Mark!! flashbacks of the movie The Room came to my mind

    I am not Mark but I can tell you I have tried the rotary twice now... wasn't impressed. I keep telling myself I need to get someone who is a pro to show me how to use it. I have watched countless videos but when pad hits the paint, I see no improvement over what a good DA can do.

    I agree and more swirls left behind. It's all about technique with the rotary, which I lack.
