This thread is referring to rotary polishers, and as such they tend to last a lot longer than DA polishers. The Makita rotaries are very well built but suffer from cord failures if used a lot. It's a common problem but an easy fix.
Me thinks not. Here's the original post:
Mine burned out after 25 years, recommend me one please. I already Have a Porter Cable, I need something that I can buff scratches and scuffs out with.
Porter Cable doesn't show they even sell a rotary buffer on their site...only DA polishers...which is the appropriate tool that really should be used to buff out scratches and scuffs.
