The FLEX XC 3401 dual action orbital polisher is the true dual action machine for the perfect finish!

The FLEX XC 3401 Orbital Polisher is a dual action polisher on steroids! The FLEX XC3401 VRG buffer effectively removes swirls, scratches, and oxidation that can’t be removed using other D.A. polishers. The FLEX XC3401 VRG Polisher is one of the best polishers we’ve ever tested!



The orbital rotation of the FLEX XC 3401 Polisher simulates the circular movement of the human hand while polishing. This motion is less likely to cause holograms than a rotary buffer. At the same time, the polisher's highly smooth running facilitates a careful, precise finish and allows for hologram-free polishing.

Flawless polishing is just what the FLEX XC3401 VRG Dual Action Polisher was made to do. The positive drive ensures a uniform movement, even under load, thanks to constant lift. Taken in conjunction with the large stroke length the FLEX can remove existing holograms from black finishes.

The large stroke length refers to the size of the orbit. On many dual action polishers, this is a very small distance and therefore you feel a jiggling motion. On the FLEX polisher, the stroke length is 8 mm, a huge distance in terms of orbital polishers!

The FLEX Dual-Action Polisher has a true dual action motion. The pad moves in a forced rotation that keeps moving even when you put some pressure on the machine. This forced circular motion REDUCES VIBRATION. No more jiggling! The FLEX Polisher operates smoothly because of the controlled motion of the pad.

Buff out existing holograms and swirls on black paint finishes with the FLEX XC3401 VRGdual action buffer!
The FLEX Polisher is capable of buffing out existing holograms on black paint!

The FLEX Orbital Polisher leaves no holograms or cookie-cutting on large panels!
Achieve uniform, flawless results on large body panels with the smooth, controlled motion of the FLEX Orbital Polisher!



Thanks to the direct orbital drive, very little heat develops on the surface, which is ideally suited to temperature-sensitive finishes (i.e., “soft” clear coats). The FLEX XC3401 VRG Orbital Polisher makes it almost impossible to burn the paint! The accelerator trigger switch and speed selection allow for a controlled acceleration to the optimal speed. The FLEX Orbital Polisher’s smooth acceleration and uniform, controlled motion make this DA machine ideal for novices and pros alike.

The FLEX Orbital Polisher is rugged like a work truck but it has sophisticated electronics, like a luxury sedan. A seven-fold microprocessor offers constant speed control by tachometer generator, soft start, accelerator trigger switch, restart protection after power interruption, overload protection, temperature monitoring, and speed selection.

The FLEX Orbital Polisher has a comfortable, ergonomic design. Detail for long periods with less fatigue!
The bale handle and speed trigger locations make it easy to position your hands for optimum balance.

As if that weren’t impressive enough, the FLEX Orbital Polisher has shut-off carbon brushes. When the carbon brushes wear down, the motor automatically shuts off to avoid damage.

The FLEX Orbital Polisher can easily do most of the work for which you’d normally rely on a rotary machine, and it’s safer! The dual action nearly eliminates the risk of burns or holograms. Plus, the large stroke of 8 mm allows the polisher to cover more area faster. A 9 ft. power cord allows you to work easily around most vehicles.

The FLEX Orbital Polisher has an adjustable bale handle on the top and a speed control on the side for easy access with your thumb. A speed trigger on the underside of the polisher allows you to gradually accelerate speed as needed. The FLEX Orbital Polisher packs all these features into less than 6 pounds!



The bale handle is positioned on the front of the polisher for your comfort. With the other hand placed at the bottom of the machine, this position makes it easy to balance the polisher on the work surface. The ergonomic design allows you to work for long periods without fatigue.

The FLEX dual action polisher comes with a 5.5 Inch Hook & Loop Backing Plate. This plate is compatible with all Lake Country 6.5 Inch Foam Pads.

The FLEX Orbital Polisher is an outstanding professional grade dual action polisher. It is comfortable to use, well-made, and it works harder than a typical dual action polisher without putting your paint at risk of holograms. Most importantly, the FLEX Orbital Polisher eliminates swirls, scratches, and other paint flaws to leave the paint looking flawless.

Flex 3401

I am not a pro however I have been using it on classic cars to restore the paint. I enjoy working with it.
Pros:
Good weight, quality build, acceptable noise levels and good ergonomics.
Cons:

Should have purchased long ago-
July 22, 2016
Seems very well made. Makes my buffing job easier with better results. I've read some complaints about the reverse rotation but I have no issues picking it right up even though my rotary buffer is opposite rotation then the flex 3401.
Pros:
Great handling machine. Very well made.
Cons:
Wish I'd gotten the HD model with longer cord.

An Animal
July 18, 2016
After receiving it I could understand the price this unit is well made. I've been detailing cars for 40 years and made the switch to my first orbital an early Griots PC 15 yrs ago, which I love (still going strong) but felt it could use more power for heavy scratch or swirl removal. I still think the PC is a great unit for the novice or DIY its light, manageable with one hand, (hated the switch location but learned to live with it). When I tried the Flex its like night and day, its an animal and sounds like it with those metal gears, its very ergonomic. I usually use the Flex for all my compounding, polishing, swirl removal and severe scratches and save the PC for light delicate scratch removal, sealant and wax application.
Pros:
well made very ergonomic and easy to handle
Cons:
noisy

Best DA orbital I've ever used
June 4, 2016
This is my second unit. My first lasted almost 8 years. This time around I opted for the professional with the 25' cord.
Pros:
Gear driven. It delivers as much power as you need to get the job done.

Simply the best dual action polisher!
May 9, 2016
I love this polisher! This is the only dual action polisher that will power through defects like a rotary but much safer than a rotary. The ergonomics, power, quality & ease of use makes this my favorite polisher I own. Get the 4" Lake Country backing plate along with Lake Country 5" & 6.5" Hybrid pads & then you'll have everything you'll ever need for that show car finish!
Pros:
Simply the best! Fit, finish, power & quality!
Cons:
None!

Built like a tank!
February 5, 2016
So, I've been using my Flex 3401 for 4 years now - probably on my 350th+ full detail. I've run over it with several cars, I've dropped it countless times, even sprayed it good with a aerosol can of electrical cleaner to get some "gunk" out of the vents. As I picked it up to place it on my cart to let the cleaner evaporate, I managed to hit the power button and a spark from the brushes ignited the whole thing. It had crazy flames coming out of it for probably 5 seconds before I managed to extinguish it. That was a year ago. Still going like new - swapped probably 10 backing plates, and brushes four or five times. I got the 21mm and 15mm Rupes, but keep coming back to my sweet "keep on spinnin'!" :)
Pros:
- Built like a Tiger tank - Forced rotation, just keeps on spinning! - No issue working -all- areas, even sharp bends, kinks and all curved panels
Cons:
- On huge flat panels a large throw DA like Rupes 21 can be more effective

A "MUST HAVE" TOOL
July 3, 2015
An excellent polisher that easy to use with all the power needed to get outstanding results. My Makita works well also but I get less splatter and can work safer using the Flex. An orange pad with the Pinnacle compounds get my cars ready for a couple coats of Fuzion wax for absolutely WOW FACTOR results for late spring till late fall and then Klasse Sealant for durability for the winter months.
Pros:
1. Safer to use 2. Less splatter using the orbital 3. Love the longer 25 ft. cord on the HD Model 4.Smooth and quiet operation
Cons:
Pricey but it's well built.

Love My Flex 3401
May 1, 2015
I had been using a Meguiar's G110V2 and it works well but after using my 3401 for the first time I will give my G110V2 to my son. It took a little getting used to, about half a doors worth of polishing, so I was controlling it instead of the other way around. But once I was used to it I found I could work faster to achieve the same results.
Pros:
Well made Plenty of Power
Cons:
None I can see

Glad I upgraded
February 19, 2015
I used a PC for a couple years, wasn't real happy with the power after a couple months. This machine has plenty of power and is a very well built machine.It definitely is a time saver. The forced rotation is the way to go!!!
Pros:
Power, forced rotation, time saving, if I ever decide to sell it I can recover most of my money.
Cons:
None

Works great for all task never misses a beat direct drive keeps thing rolling alon.
Pros:
Nice for doing anything you want to do Direct drive is the way to go. Don't buy cheap polishers buy the best your wasting your money on the cheap junk.
Cons:
No storage bag comes with the unit sadly after spending good money for the unit. I believe the company outta send me one. I would recommend the product tho but make them throw in a free bag.

Does better job faster than PC 7424
October 14, 2014
Used the Porter Cable unit for 7-8 years and was perfectly happy until friend told me about Flex. I used same orange pad and same Menzerna 106FF and got fabulous results quicker. Flex is stronger unit and therefore not as easy to control as PC so glad I had the experience of the PC unit, not that you couldn't learn the Flex in one or two outings.
Pros:
Ease of results, well built.
Cons:
Pay attention and don't lose control.

Cons:

Flex 3401 DA Orbital Polisher
August 30, 2014
My experience with car bodywork upkeep is very limited. With some research and advice I selected this excellent machine and have used it with Meguiars products to get my car back looking the way it should. I own a black 2014 Cayenne which was abused by some totally unprofessional body shop workers when it went in for a small dent repair. They had used a rotary machine of some sort with some nasty polish and the 3 month old car looked like it was 10 years old, even paint spray on some panels on the opposite side of the car to the dented back panel. The Flex DA with Meguiars Ultimate Compound on Lake Country pads made easy work getting all noticeable swirls out (adopting techniques illustrated by Mike Philllips) and overspray off. Now the car looks new again, I am a very satisfied customer.
Cons:
It's so good you may want to play with it too much !.

Fantastic polisher. Put that blue foam pad on and polished those scratches right out of there. The 8mm throw is just right for this machine. This polisher and a 3 inch rupes is all I need to make me happy.
Pros:
Fast removal of scratches.
Cons:
None

Gear driven head, best quality
June 19, 2014
If you are looking for the best in an orbital buffer, this should be on your short list. Everything from the cord, head, body, are top notch. Action is smooth, it's quiet, and doesn't get hot even on low settings. Very nice product
Pros:
Everything
Cons:

Great Polisher
June 1, 2014
Used on my new ashen grey Camario with a Meguire's soft buff foam polishing pad with Meguire's 205 polish and Chemical Guy's 5.5 in. hex logic finishing pad with NXT Tech wax 2.0. First I used Meguire's 205, one medium fast pass using my Flex 3401 then I used hex logic finishing pad with my Flex 3401. I did not let the car lot to detail it. I wanted to do it myself. Though my paint was smooth, I had water spots that did not want to come off. I researched all the products I bought. These were the best products to remove it safely. All spots are gone, polished to shine and waxed for protection. Keep in mind my Flex 3401's speed was no higher then 3. My Flex Dual Action Orbital Polisher 3401 is a great product and highly recommended. Autogeek shipped my Flex 3401 quickly and is a great business to work with. They included the Mike Phillips' book and dvd and it was a very helpful guide with great info.
Pros:
Easy to use if you watch the dvd and read the book. Of course, if you're experienced it should be an amazing product for you (Flex DA 3401 polisher)
Cons:
None

Was hesitant but glad I made the purchase
May 18, 2014
The reviews were stellar but I already had a Porter Cable orbiter. Also, the price....$350!!!!! That's a lot of cash. Long story short, I pulled the trigger and made the purchase, The Flex is night and day compared to the PC. It worked wonders on my 2007 black Mustang. The direct drive mechanism is what sets this unit apart in my opinion. If you're on the fence like me, jump off and make the purchase!

Good middle of the road polishing action
May 4, 2014
I own and operate a body shop and bought this polisher to use as a second step polisher after the heavy cut is done by the rotary polisher. As for using it as a buffing tool to remover orange peel or after dirt nibbling you can forget this polisher I cannot do it in a timely fashion. But i had decent results using it as a swirl remover or a glaze polisher. If you plan on using this as your only polisher if you are a professional your making a bad decision, but if you want to add a tool to your polishing line up it is a good middle of the road polisher for light polishing or maintaince polishing. I just hope it holds out because you have to run the speed very high to get a good result in a timely manner. Very happy with purchasing from auto geek. Well package and very fast shipping at the right prices and stock all accessories for this machine.

Best DA machine out there!!
April 27, 2014
Having worked for a while with the rotary machine, I didn't expect this one to be so good!!!! it is very powerful and it really works!!! actually I can forget about rotary machines now. It is extremely easy to work on wet sanding and to work on scratches and it really feels sturdy.
Pros:
Lightweight, sturdy, fast, easy on hands, perfect for wet sanding, durable, reliable, affordable.
Cons:
None

I have been using a porter cable d.a. polisher until I got the flex 3401. I realize what I have been missing. Easy to use, and great results. The forced rotation gives you an advantage over other d.a. polishers. Better results in less time.

The definitive DA Polisher
February 21, 2014
Not long after this Flex 3401 arrived I realized to my horror that this electric appliance would probably outlive me, and I am still years from retirement. It works so fast, that the waxing of the car is kind of an anti-climax. To justify it I think you have to be younger than I am and have at least two good cars that you like to take care of (i.e. wax at least three times a year each). My thinking was: Do I want to pay $130 for a tool worth $60 (but still very effective) made in a factory in China, or do I want to pay $350 for a $350 machine? I went this way. I can see most people going the other. This is unquestionably a pro tool.
Pros:
Like bringing a machine gun to a bar fight. Durable. Reliable. Powerful. If you use this as intended, your cars will look wonderful. Saves time. This means in practice that your car stays waxed all the time. Your probably get all your money and then some back at trade-in time.
Cons:
Expensive--but not overpriced. More tool than most amateurs need.

A true workhorse! This light weight, dual action polisher easily powers through paint flaws to provide a professional finish! I only wish the HD option was available when I bought mine. The longer cord would eliminate the need for an extension cord.

Flex XC3401
August 4, 2013
EASY to use machine even for a novice. I have a good deal of common sense but let me stress I am no super duper natural at all things mechanical (in fact I'm normally intimidated by such things). That said, I started at low speeds to get used to how this machine handles and within 10 minutes was buffing at speeds 4 to 5 as the machine has a scale of 1 to 6. Turns out the machine was the easiest to learn. It's the polishes and how quickly they break down as well as how much to use that was the learning curve for me. Please note there is no damage done even while learning. You simply go over the area again until it's right. DO NOT BE AFRAID TO BUY THIS MACHINE...it's is awesome and my first time out made my car look like incredible using Menzerna products which are user friendly to a novice since they have a long work time before they breakdown and dry out. I thought I was taking a chance by buying the Flex over the PC as I thought it might be too powerful. It is powerful in that the machine is capable of serious correction but it is so safe to use. For uneven surfaces, slow it down and tilt the pad as needed. If you're the type of person who likes quality and would rather buy once rather than replace a cheaper item down the line then just buy this machine and skip the other garbage out there. You will not regret your purchase.

Should have been my first polisher purchase. I doubt there's a single polisher that can match the Flex for versatility and results. It took me to the show car results I was looking for and made it simple.

Like driving a Porche

Just finished detailing my Montego Blue 325i today. I used it with Meguairs NXT machine polish. This was my first time using a machine polisher and I am thrilled with the result. All small scuffs and scratches have disappeared and not a single hologram. I highly agree with your review of this product. HiFi Man, Ireland.
