The spiral and bevel gearing provides for smooth operation and efficient transfer of power. A variable speed dial sets the orbit rate between 2,500 and 6,000 orbits per minute for precise control. The speed dial is on the end of the motor, out of the way, preventing accidental changing of the speed. A handy slide switch prevents hand fatigue when the unit must be run for the extended periods of time that polishing operations require. The random orbit action of the special six-inch polishing pad provides a smooth, swirl-free finish. An included side handle fits either the left or right side for maximum comfort. Includes polisher, polishing pad no. 54745, wrench no. 48779, and operator's manual.

CCS 6.5 Inch Smart Foam Pads by Lake Country

Lake Country's CCS Dual Action 6.5 inch Foam Pads are flat full contact buffing pads that work with your Porter Cable 7424 to correct automotive paint more easily than ever before. The CCS pads' user-friendly features provide better control, less product waste, and a more successful detail. All Smart Pads have Velcro® brand hook and loop fasteners to attach to the backing plate listed below.

Dual Action 5 Inch Flexible Backing Plate

Made of indestructible urethane, this backing plate holds pads securely while you work using hook & loop backing. The edges of the plate are beveled and flexible to prevent accidental bumps with your paint.

Edge 2000 6 Inch Foam Dual Action Pads 

With a revolutionary Quick Change System, these pads require no backing plate and take only seconds to change. These reticulated polyester urethane foam pads are double-sided, and feature a quick connect/ disconnect method of interchanging. You get twice the surface area in one pad and each pad fits your machine like a glove. Use the Edge Drive 2K Adapter to attach these pads to the Porter Cable 7424.

Edge 2000 Wave 6 Inch Foam Dual Action Pads 

The unique design of these foam pads allows heat to escape from the pad to reduce the risk of burning the paint.As the pad rotates on the polisher, the high points maintain constant contact with the paint surface to blend away imperfections. The valleys in the foam provide excellent venting to reduce the risk of burning the paint. Use the Edge Drive 2K Adapter to attach these pads to the Porter Cable 7424.

Edge2K Drive DA Adaptor (Porter Cable 7424)

The Edge 2000 Quick-Connect Adapter for the Porter Cable 7424 dual action orbital polisher.

Cobra Microfiber 6 Inch Bonnets

These six-inch Cobra™ microfiber bonnets are well-made, reversible, and machine washable. With a 70/30 blend, they are super soft and gentle on all paint finishes. Cover your foam pad directly or layer them over the lamb's wool leveling pad for a more cushioned application. Either way, they are superior at applying products, polishing and shining.

Lambswool Leveling Pad

The lambswool pad is best used as a cushion underneath a bonnet on your Porter Cable 7424. The wool pad serves as a barrier between the bonnet and the backing plate. Unlike foam pads that can be crushed under a bonnet, the lambswool pad retains its shape and can be used for light compounding if you desire.

Carpet & Upholstery Brushes 

The Porter Cable carpet brushes turn your polisher into a powerful carpet cleaning machine. Each brush is made of tough synthetic bristles in four different varieties. Clean carpet, upholstery, grout, even leather! Each brush is threaded to fit the Porter Cable 7424 just like a backing plate.
