Griots Garage 6 Inch Random Orbital Polisher

3rd generation polisher is redesigned for superior comfort!

Griot’s Garage 6 Inch Random Orbital Polisher has established a reputation among detailers and enthusiasts for having the ability to remove just about any paint imperfection imaginable including water spots, swirls, oxidation and even light scratches! This is largely due in part to its powerful 7 amp motor that packs a whopping 850 watts of paint-polishing power. The smooth, powerful motor delivers low-end torque and a wide, 5/16” diameter orbit ensures uniform material removal. Griot’s Garage has once again raised the bar with the 3rd generation 6 Inch Random Orbital Polisher that features superior ergonomics for an even smoother polishing experience!

Griot's Garage 6 Inch Random Orbital Polisher features superior ergonomics for a smooth buffing experience!
New 3rd generation polisher features superior ergonomics including a housing with molded hand and finger grips along with a domed, rubberized palm grip. More conveniently located switches allow you to focus more on the task at hand - polishing paint!
Griot’s Garage carefully took into consideration its wide customer base when designing the 3rd generation 6 Inch Random Orbital Polisher. Their goal was to make machine polishing less intimidating for those who are new to the hobby, while also making it a more pleasant experience for professional detailers who polish paint every day. Griot’s Garage has successfully conquered the daunting task of pleasing both the novice and the professional with their redesigned 3rd generation 6 Inch Random Orbital Polisher!

Anyone that has used a 2nd generation Griot’s Garage 6 Inch Random Orbital Polisher knows that power has never been a problem, so Griot’s Garage focused on redesigning the casing of the polisher to make it more comfortable to hold during extended polishing sessions. The adjustable handle is still there, but they added a rubberized grip to make it easier to hold on to. The housing now features molded hand and finger grips along with a domed, rubberized palm grip. The speed control dial and power switch were also moved to more convenient locations. All of these features add up to a significantly improved polisher that will surely inspire you to have fun in your garage!

The features that made the 2nd generation 6 Inch Random Orbital Polisher so successful are still there, including the powerful 7 amp, 850 watt motor that ensures the pad rotates under almost any amount of pressure. While most dual action polishers will stop rotating when more than a little bit of pressure is applied to the head of the polisher, the Griot’s Garage 6 Inch Random Orbital Polisher just keeps on going! This enables you to achieve smooth, swirl-free paint in less time.

The 3rd generation Griots Polisher is still built to last!

Even though Griot’s Garage 6 Inch Random Orbital Polisher is a powerful tool that’s capable of removing swirls, water spots, light scratches and oxidation, it is still very paint-friendly, even when used in the hands of a novice. The random orbit motion of the pad prevents heat from building up in one spot. Less heat is produced by the polisher and due to the random orbit motion, less heat is transferred to your paint.
  • Powerful 7-Amp, 850-Watt Motor
  • 2,500 - 6,800 Orbits Per Minute
  • Variable Speed, Wider RPM Range
  • Wider 5/16" orbit pattern for faster and better results
  • Ergonomic Adjustable Handle
  • More Torque, Better Performance
  • Long 10 Foot Power Cord
  • 6 Inch Backing plate included
Griot’s Garage 6 Inch Random Orbital Polisher includes a 6 inch hook and loop backing plate. This backing plate is designed to accommodate 6.5 inch pads from Griot’s Garage, Lake Country, Cobra, and Meguiars.

Upgrade to the
Griot's Garage 6 Inch Random Orbital Polisher HD!

Griot's Garage 6 Inch Random Orbital Polisher

The HD model has a heavy duty 16 gauge, 25 foot power cord hardwired into the polisher. The longer cord is more convenient than an extension cord and it is gauged to deliver maximum power to the polisher for safe, efficient operation.

Random orbital polisher
Have had a little more than a year. Have done 4 cars with it. Stopped running today,had to replace the brushes, two extra provided with the unit when new. Still not working,customer service said brushes are problematic, I will be sending the unit back,hoping they can repair it. When it works it does a good job, but worn brushes after detailing 4 cars. I am not impressed if that is as long as brushes will last.
ProsGood job when it works.
ConsNeeds new brushes after owning it for a year. Not very good quality if brushes need replacement after detailing 4 cars

Great product - don't fall for "FREE BONUS"
The Griots Garage RO Polisher is awesome, just tried it on my car for the first time. Kit came with quality products for pads and cleaners. No issues with product. However, do not fall for the FREE BONUS listed at the top of the page for the Polisher, where Autogeek is stating there is a FREE Pinnacle Polish and green pad. That is only with a few kits and only when shown inside the kit selection itself. I find this rather misleading, they should only list it within the kits if that is the case. I called customer support and they did not help, and stated they did not find this misleading.
ProsSelectable speeds, adjustable handle, quality product. Kit with pads, cloths and cleansers is high quality as well. Works very well.
ConsA little heavy, but maybe they are all that way. No issues on product, only dissatisfaction with the Autogeek buying experience and customer service. Marketing and Customer Satisfaction: consider changing your web placement of free bonuses.

Griots 6" ROP Works GREAT!
I've used the PC and HF 6" ROPs and really wanted a large throw polisher however, the BOSS, Rupes, and Flex were really going to meet my needs. I begrudgingly went with another 8mm polisher and I am really impressed. The Griots polisher has plenty of power and is built really well. The rotation continues even though I applied quite a bit of pressure, the rotation continues around tight corners, and the motion is smooth. With all of that power, the polisher is quieter and smoother than my previous 2 machines.
ProsPower Noise Smooth motion Well built Versatile

3rd generation of a quality product
I recently purchased this polisher for my son, who just bought his first car, a beautiful 1994 Acura Legend. The paint finish is nice, and he wants to keep it that way. My first polisher was the first generation of the Griot's 6 inch random orbital, and I hope that he likes his as well as I liked mine. I still have it, and when I did a side by side comparison I was tempted to keep the one I bought for him and give him mine. (Just kidding) They are similar in size and overall appearance, but you can tell that Griot's have made improvements that detailers can appreciate. You can't go wrong with this workhorse of a polisher, it's a industry standard that despite it's low cost delivers a quality finish that one can be proud of. I would not have bought it for him if it wasn't the best entry level polisher you can get that is both good and safe to use.
ProsErases swirls, water spots, light scratches, and oxidation. Takes you from point A to point B in a reasonably short period of time that makes one feel as if the time and effort expended is bearing tangible results.
Conssome have complained about vibration when buffing, but to me it's negligible considering the cost of the polisher and the end result, which makes it worthwhile.

Great buffer/polisher
Bought one that came with an orange pad and all in one sealer. Washed, call bared, and sealed it, did a great job removing all swirls and a few scuffs and a little big of pain transfer. Paint looks better than when it was brand new.

Great Machine for paint correction
Got my GG6 recently and corrected some paint nightmares on a small hatch. It worked and worked :) Really happy with my purchase. :)
ConsI live in a place where the voltage isnt 110V hope it would be sold in a 220V, so I don't have to lug my step down all the time

Outstanding for the Price
Bought this buffer about 6 months ago, and it's been the best investment I've made for my cars (and all of my friends' cars LOL) in a long time. Works exactly like it should, feels extremely sturdy, doesn't shake and vibrate uncontrollably, and stop spinning when you have to put some extra pressure on it (unlike the PC), and has made quick, GORGEOUS work of every car I've detailed thus far.
Pros25' cable, plenty of power, solid feel, adjustable/removable handle.... Way more than I expected for the price, and it really gets the job done.
ConsCons: Other than the position of the power selector wheel I haven't found any.

Really like it
Has much more power than my old Porter Cable 7336. Did notice an issue though. I have the version with the 25 foot cable. Worked fine plugged into an outlet but when I used a 50 ft 14 gauge extension cord with it, it wouldn't turn on. For some reason it must not have been getting enough juice. Never had a problem with that cable. I bought it on discount from Auto Geek. Great value for the price.

Safe and Easy
Item arrived fast and well packaged. I've used it on two cars and it works as expected. Much better than my old buffer. This seems like the right choice for someone like me who just wants to keep their personal vehicles looking good.
ProsPowerful and will hold up when you need to apply extra pressure to a problem area.

Worth the price!
I've taken the cheap way out 3 times in the past several years by getting inexpensive orbital buffers. After breaking the third one, I bit the bullet and bought the Griot Garage orbital buffer. Wow--what a difference that makes. ...sometimes I'm a slow learner!
Prosadjustable handle is awesome.
ConsThe way I hold the polisher, I tend to bump the variable speed dial and inadvertently adjust it a bit more often than I'd like. I'd like to see the ability to lock it in for those of us with that problem and don't need to adjust the speed frequently. I'm sure I'll get used to it.

Great DA Unit
Great DA machine better than the PC. So far polished out a jet black 2013 Camaro to remove holograms. Also great with using the NanoSkin Auto Scrubbers for removing heavy overspray from vehicles. Good to have in any professionals arsenal.

Better then the PC
Bought one of these after owning a Porter Cable DA. This Griots really blows the Porter cable out of the water. Griots really thought out the design with this. Well done

Solid Product
I agree with Dave. This is a great polisher. I saw no need to spend all that money for a Flex. Flex is a great polisher but for me (and my Porsche) the Griot's is perfect.

I am by no means a professional detailer. I am the weekend therapy patient. I got the HD version for $154. For the price this is a great polisher. Spending almost 4 beans for a Flex (for me at least) didn't make sense. I could see a pro using this but I am sure the flex is far better but for me this does the job and does it very well.
