  • Will be the only car buffer any driveway detailer or car owner will likely ever need.

Darren's Professional Review: While this choice from Griot's Garage might appear as low budget when lined up against the other orbital car buffers, by no means is this a cheap piece of machinery. This is still professional grade, and a car buffer I still use professionally on a regular basis for light duty paint correction and finish polishing. So easy to use, one handed use is possible. If you are unsure as to the direction you are headed with regards to simply being a driveway detailer or perhaps entering into the world of professional detailing, I would start with this one if you are on a tight budget.
