The perfect combination of accuracy and speed!
The G13 Mini Long-Throw Polisher takes the innovative design of the G8 Mini Random Orbital Polisher and combines it with the power of a long-throw platform, giving you the utmost performance, control and comfort! Its refined body shape, extensive use of double-shot rubber, and balanced driveline highlight the attention to detail that was designed into this polisher. The G13’s powerful 700-watt motor, 13mm dual-action orbit, and included 2” and 3” backing plates mean you can really hyper focus your paint correction efforts. This polisher delivers increased paint correcting ability, refined smoothness in operation, and higher pad rotation over the already powerful G8. Its constant speed control won’t bog down pad rotation when you apply pressure, and the included 10’ quick connect power cord will increase efficiency and work area organization when utilizing multiple tools. All this tech translates into a balanced, smooth-running tool that feels great in your hands and allows you to produce pristine paint in record breaking time!
Long-throw polishers are capable of accomplishing higher levels of correction in less time than their traditional random-orbital alternatives. The nature of orbital polishers is to rotate and oscillate at the same time. The "throw" of an orbital polisher refers to the distance the pad travels from it's center axis while oscillating. Normal random orbital polishers only travel about 5 millimeters from their center access, whereas long-throw polishers travel about 13 millimeters during oscillation! What that means is that the pad is covering a greater distance in the same amount of time as a normal random orbital polisher. More space covered means more paint surface polished in less time, which means you are able to work quicker and more effectively with a long-throw polisher like the Griot's Garage G13 Mini Long-Throw Orbital!
The other crucial aspect of the Griot's Garage G13 Mini Long-Throw Orbital is the fact that it is a smaller polisher that can use much smaller pads (2 or 3 inch) than a standard 5 or 6 inch polisher. This smaller nature of it makes it a lot easier to control! Rather than trying to control a hefty polisher while it vibrates and shakes in your hands, you will have much more control over a lighter, smaller polisher while you are buffing! On top of that, the availability of smaller pads means you will be able to work on smaller and more niche paint surfaces without risk of over-polishing the corners or ridges of your paint! The Griot's Garage G13 Mini Long-Throw Orbital perfectly combines the benefits of a long-throw polisher with the ease of use of a mini-polisher to give you the best control and polishing power you have ever seen!
However, just because the Griot's Garage G13 Mini Long-Throw Orbital comes in a small package, does not mean that it lacks any of the punch of a larger polisher! The Griot's Garage G13 Mini Long-Throw Orbital is equipped with a 700-watt motor that has more than enough power to expertly polish your paint in record time! This powerful of a motor means that even if you are applying strong pressure while polishing, the Griot's Garage G13 Mini Long-Throw Orbital won't start to skip or stall! It will keep the pad moving through it all!
The Griot's Garage G13 Mini Long-Throw Orbital was designed to be an extremely balanced and comfortable machine to use! You won't have any issues with the Griot's Garage G13 Mini Long-Throw Orbital walking you across the paint or excessive vibration wearing out your hands! Everything about this polisher makes it one of the most enjoyable polishers to use!
