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 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

Great tool
April 16, 2014
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.

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.

A wonderful buffer
June 11, 2012
I have used this buffer for just about 2 years and I am simply amazed at the results I achieve using the Flex XC3401. I previously used as 10" buffer which was much more work and the results were substandard. I actually look forward to polishing my cars. Thanks FLEX for such a great product.

Simply The Best
April 17, 2012
Best DA polisher on the planet. Makes the PC, Meg, and Griots look and feel like Harbor Freight tools. First thing you notice is the quality and fit and finish. It's made in Germany so I expect high quality. Second, you'll notice it's a million times smoother than other da polishers. Lasty, it corrects very quickly. Anyone telling you a Griots and match the 3401 is crazy. I still keep my other DA for spreading wax.

Incredibly smooth performance compared to every other D/A polisher. Far better quality than the competition by a long shot. I can't really do it justice in this format so take a look at my full review here. http://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/product-reviews/23276-review-flex-xc-3401-dual-action-orbital-polisher.html

It lives up to the hype
November 12, 2011
Well as the ex-coach of the Az Cardinals would say "It is what we thought it was!"..meaning, its awesome. WHY? Lets start with how smooth it runs. Not having to worry about if its going to keep spinning or not like a standard DA. This thing keeps moving which is great but is ESPECIALLY helpful when doing things like...along a tape line or body line where you want to get that last 1/2" or so where the swirls sometimes like to hide. If you tilt a DA on its edge to get extra pressure to the edge of the pad, most times it quits spinning. Not the flex. I've experienced MUCH nicer 'trimming' results with this baby. Tilt it, put the pressure on the edge...let it do the correcting, wipe away your polish and enjoy the COMPLETELY swirl free results. Another things ive been please with is, for ME at least, on factory clears...it works great with the Meguiars D300 compound and cutting disc. I have not experienced any hazing from it and its great to have something that is so easy to use like D300 on a machine that has that extra edge to it. The ONLY thing id say be careful of is...don't touch the cast iron head on this thing after you've run it a few passes..it gets hot. I got a couple little stingers the first time i used it just because i was use to grabbing that part when i go to clean my pad on other DA's...but now i've totally gotten use to just holding it upside down by the main body...no problems. Awesome machine and if you can get it i say go for it. You'll never want to part with it.

A time saver and money maker!
November 11, 2011
To me time is money. If I can do a job faster, then I make more money. For years I've been using the Porter Cable 7424 and it has worked out fine. I decided to take a gamble and pay three times as much as a PC for this FLEX. It paid for itself almost immediately!! With this particular tool I have found that I gain at least 30% efficiency in my detailing. With a Porter Cable you have to stop the machine, change the speed, and then start it up again when you go over a thin area like a leading edge or a hood scoop. With the XC3401's variable speed trigger I just slow it down when I need to and then go back to full throttle when it is safe. All without having to turn off the machine or change my speed settings manually! There is also the fact that the entire movement is gear driven. There is no stopping the forced rotation of this polisher. That also gains you some power and efficiency. It won't fix anything the Porter Cable won't fix, but it will do it in less time, and that is definitely worth it. Anytime you can buy a tool which can turn a 3 hour job into a 2 hour job, you have to get it!

August 19, 2011
Used it for three years now, with incredible results and no problems. Easy to handle, effective on all paint finishes, and extremely well-made. I expect it to last a long time. I am not a commercial detailer, but a very finicky amateur. I usually use the Flex for initial clearning, followed by second with Klasse All-in-One, then use Klasse final coat, applied by hand. Then I follow up with PS-21, by hand. The Flex random pattern removes swirls and does not produce them at all, used as directed. After having used the cheaper brands, I consider the Flex a revelation. The 6.5 hook and loop Lake Country pads are also a great product, and the Flex makes optimal use of them. The Flex is great for the larger jobs, and its durability allows one to use it without worry of its overheating on the challenging jobs.

A wonder to behold
May 30, 2011
Took advantage of a discount offered & decided it was time to upgrade from a PC to the Flex I had heard so much about. I had spent about 2 yrs with the pc & was getting GOOD results but nothing spectacular for the time spent - thought polishing just might not be my thing. In comes the Flex & the difference was obvious from the second I cranked her up. I used a 3 step polishing process & just knocked it outta the park. Actually, I've realized the OK results weren't a result of my ability, I just didn't have the right tool. Jeweling, hmmmm, wonder if I can master that !

The perfect DA
May 17, 2011
The Flex 3401 is a fantastic polisher, I can't believe that I waited this long to get one. Now that I own one I have several important points to share. Being a direct drive DA this polisher has serious power. It is impossible to stop the rotation, so using 6.5'' pads on curves and vertical panels is no problem whatsoever. Most importantly the vibrations with this polisher are a fraction of the typical DA which was very important to me. I used to have my hands go numb after only an hour of polishing, now I can finish out an entire car with no problems (4-6 hours). It is expensive, but I wish I started off with this DA. It trains you how to correctly polish (hold the pad exactly flat) and it has epic correction power. I can not recommend this polisher enough.

Recieved mine a couple of days ago, my 2005 f250 had waterspots all over it. Combined this with some 5.5 cs pads and mequire 105 and 205. Just amazing results.

I just got my Flex ! What a huge different from the PC .Work way faster-lots of power ,less vibrations and less noise . There is a very easy way you can make the 5.5'' backing plate to work with 5.5" pads too . I defiantly recommend buying the FLEX over any PC !

upgrade to Flex
March 26, 2011
Just tried my new Flex xc3401 and wow was I impressed. This is the last word in a DA polisher. Does the job without fear of paint damage and works faster than the Porter Cable which is a great machine. I have both and just use the flex now.
