Flex "The Beast" XC 3401 VRG Dual Action Orbital Polisher

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.

Great Product
I have a black 2017 Corvette Grand Sport, used the Flex XC3401 & Flex 4-3/8 backing pad with Lake Country FR-HWHITE 5.5 pads & Blackfire One Step BF900. Set Flex at 5 made 8 to 12 passes, changing pads after each panel. Then followed up with 2 coats of Pinnacle Natural Brilliance Souveran (2nd coat applied 24 hours after first coat). This is the BEST results I have had over the years and I have used many different combinations of compounds, pads and tools. Will use these products and process next on a Red 08 Z06 & 02 Black Vette convertible. Highly recommend all of the above products.

I've had the 3401 since it first came to the market and it is the best polisher money can buy. I've detailed hundreds of cars with mine and it has never skipped a beat. I've detailed multiple cars in a day giving this very little time to rest and it keeps going even when it's extremely hot. I couldn't kill it if I tried but that is a testament to how well built this polisher is. I've had to replace half a dozen backing plates from all the use it gets but its a workhorse and always leaves every car with amazing results. You get what you pay for and it's worth every penny. After your first polish, you'll kick yourself for not buying one sooner.

Best purchase for boaters
This polisher is exactly what I needed To remove oxidation from my boat. This polisher was able to remove oxidation that my previous DA was not able to take off.

Wonderful machine
I started detailing my own cars about 3 years ago. I have been using a Torq 10fx since then and it is a great starter DA. As one of my cars is a newer black Audi with hard clear coat, it became more difficult to keep it in pristine condition. I researched a while looking for a more rigorous DA. The Beast kept popping up to the top of the list and when autogeek offered one of their great sales I bought The Beast with a variety of pads. I used it just yesterday to correct my daughters dark gray A3 with many swirls and typical scratches. Using 3D Speed and The Beast yielded a beautiful result. While I was a little worried about the power and different rotation of The Beast, I learned that if you just let it work the way that feels natural to it, it just dances across the work. If you are fighting it, you are doing it wrong. It is sheer power and well balanced. Very little effort! I do still use the 10fx with a 3" pad for smaller areas. Heck, who wouldn't want 2 DAs: The Beast for all the heavy lifting and the 10fx for the smaller areas. Can't wait to try on the black Audi next.
ProsPowerful and well balanced Easy to use Great how to use videos on autogeek
ConsWhile a bit pricey, if you are looking for a powerful DA, it is worth it.

Nice machine
A highly refined machine that will last for years. The neat thing is that this thing is made to be repaired. It's pricey up front, but it lasts for years even with daily use. Every year or so, the brushes might need to be replaced in the motor, but that's cheap. Maybe $20 or so. Other components are also replaceable. Just check ereplacementparts.com or other parts website.
ProsTough, easy to replace worn parts
