Rotary Polishers & Accessories

Rotary / Circular polishers were the first kind of electrical polisher and remain the preferred tool of professional detailers. While dual-action polishers are often recommended for their ease of use, circular / rotary polishers give the user more control over the motion of the pad.

Circular / rotary polishers are excellent for collectors and skilled detailers who demand perfection. Because circular / rotary polishers supply only a rotating motion, it is up to the user to keep the polisher moving. This enables the user to concentrate on particularly tough scratches or oxidation. A consistent circular motion will wear down the edges of deep scratches more effectively than a dual-action polisher, but there is also a greater risk of burning the paint. With a circular / rotary polisher, a skilled user will be able to minimize the risk while still achieving a perfectly smooth finish.

By giving the user more control, a circular / rotary polisher also allows you to work at a pace that is comfortable for you. Whereas a dual-action polisher seems to propel itself, an orbital polisher requires your attention to detail to produce the best results. Circular / Rotary polishers are ideal for experienced detailers who don't trust their prized vehicle to anyone else.
