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.

Powerful Machine!
Buy once, cry once. Plenty of power while still well balanced. It is a little heavy and gets a little warm. Swapping out the grease and putting some lube on the felt ring and and backing plate seemed to help with the heat.
ConsA little heavy. Gets warm.
Great machine and easy to use
This is the second Flex buffer I have bought so that I can use it in different locations as well as get help with larger projects. Well balanced and while a bit heavy the construction is outstanding
ProsSafe for people who are new to auto detailing with buffers Extremely well built Great option for the longer cord First one has lasted over 15 years
ConsA little heavier than some of the other products

"The Beast"
Being out of the detailing business for over 20 years, my friend who was always doing paint corrections for his personal customers turned me on to the Flex "The Beast" XC 3401 VRG Dual Action Orbital Polisher. I had much to learn and catch up with all the updated technology. Folks I am floored and this is my favorite tool of all time! I get clean, swirl free, jobs that seem effortless! This tool is a joy to own and seem every detailer cant be wrong who use it. I would suggest getting the tool (no brainer) and go watch some videos from Mike Phillips on the use of the Flex 3401 and pad recommendations. I recommend this polisher to all who take care of their personal vehicles as well, its just so easy to lay a coat of wax or even polish out that defect you notice while working. You cannot go wrong with this polisher! This is your secret weapon!
ProsQuality Dual action paint correction Easy to use 25 ft cord Many optional backing pad sizes available Loved by all who own one
Called the beast for a reason
This is a great and well built machine that is easy to use and has insane correction abilities. Only things I could see that would make it better is some sort of internal cooling fan as this bad boy heats up pretty good during buffing and I would love to see a power cord that can be unplugged from the unit itself like on griots polishers.
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.
