The Cyclo Orbital
Polisher is the only polisher with two orbiting polishing heads! The patented
polishing mechanisms ensure smooth, swirl-free polishing with every use. The
Cyclo 5X model shown here features Cyclo’s exclusive Vibration Elimination
System to nearly eliminate vibration!
The Cyclo Orbital
Polisher has been polishing planes, automobiles, and RVs since 1953, when
they received patents on their orbital polishing mechanisms. That same year, the
company received approval from the US government to polish the military’s
aircraft and missiles. The Cyclo Polisher is still used today to polish the
Air Force One fleet. With a resume like that, we just had to see what the
Cyclo is all about. This is what we discovered:
The Cyclo Polisher is the only
dual-head polisher on the market.
Both heads move in an orbital motion, counter-clockwise. The idea is to
simulate hand polishing but at a much faster rate. Going over a scratch or
swirl with both heads ensures that you are attacking it from all sides, so
to speak. No matter what angle you look at the paint, you will not see the
former blemish. It’s the fool-proof polisher!
shows the VES counterweight (1) and the VES weighted insert (2).
The Vibration Elimination System (VES™) is available exclusively on Cyclo
Dual Head Orbital Polishers. This system is composed of a completely
redesigned counterweight and precision matched, weighted inserts. Prior to
this innovation the Cyclo Model 5 polisher imparted only about one-tenth the
vibration of traditional rotary and dual action polishers. With the
introduction of the new Cyclo VES, the amount of vibration is reduced even
further and nearly eliminated. This drastic reduction in vibration lessens
muscle and joint fatigue for the operator.
* The counterweights are pre-installed on the
Cyclo and two VES Yellow Weighted Inserts are included. These inserts are
precision matched to the Cyclo Pad Holders (sold

Inserts, also available below. Click

The Cyclo Polisher’s dual heads give you a balanced
polish every time. Single-head polishers require the user to balance the
polisher. The Cyclo Polisher stands on two heads so it is self-balancing.
The heads rest flatly on the surface of your vehicle so there is no danger of
nicking the paint with the edge of a backing plate. There is no need to press
the polisher flat on the paint; its own weight is enough to provide an even,
flawless polish. The Cyclo Polisher is also able to cover more ground than a
The two heads can perform two different functions simultaneously. Put a
light cutting pad on the head you are going to lead with, and a polishing pad on
the other head. This technique allows you to refine the paint as you remove
imperfections. It saves time and you get fantastic results.
The Cyclo Polisher will probably
outlast your vehicle! Each Cyclo Dual-Head Polisher is expertly
machined, manually polished, and hand-fitted to ensure longevity. Every part
of the polisher is serviceable and replaceable. Some fifty-year-old Cyclo
Polishers are still in use today!
The Cyclo Polisher has an accessory for every purpose. Quality pads and
bonnets make the Cyclo Polisher perfect for compounding, polishing, waxing,
and glazing. Pads attach to the heads by way of hook & loop pad holders or backing plates
(sold separately) for quick and easy pad replacement.
The Cyclo polisher is smooth and easy to operate - even for beginners!
The Cyclo Polisher isn’t just for vehicle
care. This versatile machine is also excellent for cleaning carpet,
upholstery, and grout using the available carpet brushes. The dual motion of the
heads is great for extracting stains from deep carpet or scrubbing filthy tile.
With all these benefits, we had to bring the Cyclo Polisher on board. You’ll
agree that two heads are better than one!
Premium Pads: Cyclo Premium Pads are standard 4 inch, hook and loop
foam pads. They attach to the polisher by way of Cyclo Pad Holders. Pad Holders have hook and loop fasteners to hold the pads. Cyclo Premium Pads Pad Holders and
Bonnets are available below. Cyclo Premium Pads are sold in 2 Packs.
DoublePrecision Pads: DoublePrecision Pads are double-sided foam
pads that attach to the Cyclo polisher using adapters. DoublePrecision Pads
do not require pad holders. DoublePrecision pads minimize vibration because
the pads are held onto the machine with center adapters. Doubleprecision
pads are sold individually or in pairs. Two DoublePrecision Adapters are

Upgrade to the
Cyclo Orbital Polisher HD!
The HD model has a heavy duty 16 gauge, 25 foot power cord hardwired into the polisher. The longer cord is more convenient than an extension cord and it is gauged to deliver maximum power to the polisher for safe, efficient operation. (Standard cord is 10 ft.)
Select the HD model from the drop-down menu below.
I have had a cyclo orbiter for over 20 years until I broke it by overtightening and freezing a bolt. Rather than send it in for repair I treated myself to a new model 5. Same beautiful unit, but this one is better balanced. I had some questions on the new blue head velcro attachment and my questions were addressed and answered immediately. Awesome company both in product and services!

I would recommend this item to a friend.

I have been using a large rotary polisher for years and it is always a tense situation. The thing is heavy, hard to hold onto and you can burn through the paint in an instant. The Cyclo is AMAZING. It is so well balance and gentle but very effective. It is actually now fun to polish my cars. This is the only way to go. Spend it right and spend it once. You will never use another machine.
just the right weight
Safe and effective
They could use better electric cord. The type they are using is cheaper plastic and stiff. Easy enough to replace but for this money they could do better. If not for this it would be a five star.

I have been using a Cyclo polisher for years. It is by far the best polisher on the market. I would highly recommend it to any "auto-geek."

Smooth! That's how I think of using the Cyclo to polish. It polishes paint much better than lesser DA polishers and is quieter and smoother while doing it. Your hands don't get that "tingling" that you get when using a DA and that alone makes it worth the extra $$.
