View Full Version : Griots DA Polisher vs. PC 7424?

Anyone have experience with the newer Griots polisher: http://www.griotsgarage.com/catalog.jsp?L1=L1_1000&L2=L2_1004&SKU=10925
The guy I talked to claimed it was better than the PC because of the better ergonomics, integrated cooling fan, and higher speeds.

I like it better.

Have not used the Griots polisher but my PC 7336 SP is the most idiot proof machine I have ever used. Plus working on a black car I was a but sceptical at first but with the wolfgang pads and pinacle advanced swirl remover and then AIO & SG I swear by this machine

I have never used the griots and not surprised that they make a quality one. Their price isn't as high as I thought, not bad actually. I have a PC 7424 and once you get used to one and get results I would argue that a change isn't necessary or better.
How is the griots model better ergonomically? It must be in the hands and grips?:dunno:
This is a consideration if valid.
Remember just use your rolling seat and your back will thank you)

I am a pro auto detailer and I recently tested the Griots garage polisher against the Porter cable polisher.
I used Meguiars products and Meguiars pads with both machines. I didnít use it with Griots pads or products.
The Griots machine it well made and doesnít vibrate nearly as mush as the PC.
I used both machines side by side on a number of cars and we couldn't seem to remove paint defects with the Griot machine. We tried using ALLOT of pressure, multiple passes, etc...
It is a nice tool to apply wax to a pristine finish.
As for me I will stick to my PC.

What do you mean when you say AIO? I know that SP is sealant
