    Re: Recommend me a POWERFUL 3" polisher

    The flex 3" is an animal and built stout like a 3401.

    I own an Adams SK mini and very much like it.

    I've also heard good things about the Rupes LHR75E

    Re: IGL Eco coat premier.

    I too am an IGL installer! Premier is great!

    I would not consider is a true coating, however. More along the lines of a coating topper such as C2V3. The packaging says "Polysilixane" sealant.

    I think you'll be very happy! My PE-14 sees pads ranging from 2" all the way up to 8" (on rare occasions), and hasn't missed a beat in the 3 years I've owned it!

    Another thing you could try is using a slightly thicker pad with it, like a buff and shine URO-tec (LOVE these pads). I use them on my XFE-7-150 with 5" BP frequently.

    Re: A change of machine?

    I'm a long time rotary guy and really like the 21mk2 and the flex XFE-7-150 to supplement it.

    Many times, I'll reach for my 21 first as it knocks the defects out very quickly!

    I have a Mille...

    Re: To buy a rotary or not?

    My PE14 is one of my favorite tools in the arsenal.

    IMO, Rotary is the fastest DEEPEST defect removal especially with a wool pad. I think a long throw (21mk2) comes close speedwise on large flat...

    Re: Ready to upgrade to real pro polisher

    My vote:

    21mk2 with 5" BP and washer mod. It's an animal, and you'll rarely need anything past speed 4-4.5.

    And if you can afford it, consider adding a mini to the mix as well with a 3" BP for...
