Makita 9237CB

Editor’s note: 5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

makita 9237cb polisherFor the whole body! Whether for professionals or individuals, the Makita 9237CB provides its powerful 1200 W motor and its 180 mm diameter blade for impeccable results. Its performance is guaranteed in particular by an electronic regulator (its start is soft), a protective grid against filings but above all a consistency in the chosen speed. It also offers two types of use, either with the trigger for precision work, or with the steering wheel and its 5 positions for finishing. Its 3.5 kg is compensated by its ergonomic SoftGrip handle which guarantees a perfect grip, not to mention its locking button which helps to make its grip more comfortable during long-lasting polishing.

My opinion : If you are looking for a high-performance sander and polisher capable of tackling any task, it is clearly the Makita that I recommend! I find it quite exceptional and it really works in all areas, whether you need to ensure a nice mirror effect on the bodywork of your customers or you want to pamper your boat. Although a little heavy, it is very robust and in line with the brand’s tools. I also appreciated the fact that it ultimately emits relatively little noise despite its power and that its adjustments are made so precisely. This is by far my favorite machine and if you can afford it, don’t hesitate – it does a job second to none and will definitely save you time.

Safe to use on any type of paint and for a significantly superior result, Meguiar’s MT310 is equipped with a 710W motor and has a wide speed range, keeping you in control at all times. Thanks to an eccentric movement of 8 mm, it guarantees optimal work, especially since it comes with 3 different discs (deburring, polishing and finishing) which are placed on its 127 mm plate. Ideally designed, its users benefit from a soft start system and an ergonomic design. Its grip handle is for example adjustable and it weighs only 2.3 kg, enough to handle it easily. Whether by professionals or amateurs of beautiful bodywork, and both to renovate and simply to maintain!

My opinion : From a brand that knows so much about cars, we could only hope for great! This MT310 from Meguiar’s is almost one of the essential polishers since it has had no trouble establishing itself since its release. It must be said that it offers quite incredible results and I had no trouble realizing it. If it belongs to this professional category because it allows large surfaces to be polished in a minimum of time, it also has something to please people who can then easily refinish, polish and fully protect their bodywork thanks to the various discs provided and others available. . Indeed, the power is there, you don’t even have to exert a lot of pressure to get the desired result and it really helps not to tire you too much. So yes, it is quite expensive, but it is definitely worth the investment!

Bosch Professional GPO 14 CE

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

professional polisher bosch gpo 14 ceWhich bring the final touch to an exceptional machining! Whether on metal surfaces such as those that have been varnished, the Bosch Professional GPO 14 CE has 1400 W of power and a 180 mm diameter sanding pad for a perfect and quickly obtained result. Its rotation speed is adjustable in 6 positions (up to 3000 revolutions/minute, by means of a hand wheel on the housing handle) for optimum adjustment to the material to be worked and its rotation speed is constant. Thanks to a smooth start, a very low weight (only 2.5 kg) and even an additional handle, this polisher is not only efficient, it is also practical. Totally safe, the motor is protected against overloads thanks to the direct cooling and the anti-restart finally prevents an automatic restart of the tool.

My opinion : As with Makita, Bosch Professional tools rarely disappoint so it’s no surprise that we’re here with another excellent polisher. Although it was designed to meet all the expectations of professionals, it has no trouble finding its place in a private garage: you will no doubt appreciate that its price is still lower than the two models presented just before! On the performance side, I really have no complaints, especially since it is precise thanks to its adjustable speed. And as for its design, once again it is very good with an easy grip… although I agree with some comments that the brand could have placed the ventilation in another place since sometimes you take your breath away . the head. However, it remains in a minimum detail: it is a very good choice.

PPGJ01A lifetime

Editor’s note: 4 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

polisher tacklife ppgj01aFor easy polishing and shine! This Tacklife PPGJ01A was designed to meet different DIY and maintenance expectations. Yes, of course, it can be used for car body polishing, it can also be used for other vehicles such as boats, but also for many household furniture (wood polishing, paint rust removal or rust, etc). To do this, it stands out that it comes with different drives to meet this versatility, but above all it has a 1500 W motor that gives it enough power. Its speed is also variable (6 possible settings) and it has a memory function to easily resume work where you left off. Thanks to a slow acceleration on start-up, it finally guarantees the safety of the user, especially since the latter can choose his grip between a side handle and a D-shaped one.

My opinion : Of all the polishes I have tried, I would say this Tacklife is one of the best value for money, especially since it comes with a full disc pack to maintain your car! Although the brand specifies that this tool can be useful for many other tasks, it is really in this area where it is most effective and you will have no trouble removing small scratches on your bodywork. What’s particularly nice is that the start is very smooth and the speed is easily adjustable: even if you’re not a pro and it’s your first machine of its kind, you shouldn’t have any trouble get out of it!

Ryobi R18B-0

Editor’s note: 4 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

ryobi r18b-0 polisherThe benefits of wireless connection! Unlike most polishers, the Ryobi R18B-0 chooses the 18V battery for power, allowing you great freedom of movement. (Its autonomy can also reach 120 minutes with a 5 AH battery.) Its orbital oscillation system makes it ideal for optimal polishing and a mirror finish and obviously does not leave marks on the bodywork. It must be said that it comes with 2 skids with a diameter of 254 mm perfectly suited to this type of work and which allow rapid progress. To ensure a comfortable grip, it is limited to a weight of 2.4 kg with battery, but it is above all equipped with 2 large micro-honeycomb handles on the sides which allow it to be held firmly at the same time. Finally, note that it is sold alone, without battery or charger.

My opinion : Polishing your car in your driveway without pulling an extension cord is entirely possible! Cordless polishers aren’t very common on the market, but if you ever appreciate the convenience of battery-operated tools, I’d recommend the Ryobi. A little less powerful than some wired machines, it is still very satisfactory for giving the bodywork a facelift and being perfectly satisfied with the result. I also found it very manageable and thanks to its weight, there is no need to apply pressure: it goes away on its own. It also has the advantage of not being expensive at all: if you already have tools from the Ryobi One+ 18V range and the batteries that go with it, it shouldn’t have any trouble satisfying you!
