Porter Cable 7424xp Hydro-Tech Essentials Pad Kit - Forum Favorite!

The search for the perfect Porter Cable 7424xp starter kit is over!

The Porter Cable 7424xp Hydro-Tech Essentials Pad Kit is the result of countless hours listening and taking notes from fellow Auto Geeks via phone, live support, email, and of course our online discussion forum – AutogeekOnline.net - gathering input for what our loyal customers would consider to be the perfect Porter Cable 7424xp starter kit. By combining Lake Country Hydro-Tech pads with Wolfgang Pad Werks pad care products and a host of other essential buffing and polishing accessories, we’re confident the Porter Cable 7424xp Hydro-Tech Essentials Pad Kit will fulfill all your paint polishing needs.

What’s the big deal about Lake Country Hydro-Tech pads? Simply put, Hydro-Tech pads cut more while finishing better than conventional open-cell foam pads. This is made possible by the closed-cell European foam that keeps the product on the face of the pad, where it belongs. While Lake Country Hydro-Tech pads were primarily designed for water-based polishes, they work equally well with liquid and paste waxes, sealants, cleaner waxes, and anything else that can be machine-applied to make your paint gleam!

The Porter Cable 7424xp Hydro-Tech Essentials Pad Kit includes:

Porter Cable 7424XP Variable Speed Polisher - The Porter Cable 7424XP Dual Action Polisher is a beefed up, more powerful version of our most popular dual action polisher. The Porter Cable 7424XP Dual Action Polisher has all the user-friendly features of the original Porter Cable 7424, but a 4.5 amp motor enables enhanced performance and durability. The Porter Cable 7424XP Dual Action Polisher operates from 2,500 OPM to 6,800 OPM to provide a faster removal rate. The 7424XP features all ball and roller bearing construction with spiral/bevel gears and an improved switch design. The buffer accepts a 5/16-24 spindle thread. The pad diameter is 6 inches. The polisher includes a wrench, side handle, polishing pad, and an operating manual.

Dual Action 5 Inch Flexible Backing Plate - With hook facing, this plate allows you to switch pads quickly and continue polishing. A recessed edge and flexible urethane construction gives your paint extra protection from run-ins with the backing plate. Strict tolerances on weight, balance, roundness, and flatness ensure consistent performance time and time again. The backing plate has a 5/16 inch thread.

How to Properly Use the Porter Cable 7424XP Dual Action Polisher - Learn how to polish and protect your vehicle with the user-friendly Porter Cable 7424XP Dual Action Polisher. Mike Phillips walks you through the essential steps to maintaining a smooth, glossy finish with this machine. The techniques you learn are transferrable to many other 6 inch dual action polishers.

(2) 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Cyan Advanced Cutting Foam - The blue foam is designed for compounding and swirl removal. This closed cell pre-polymer foam restores oxidized and heavily swirled paint. Looks can be deceiving; the blue pad looks coarse but actually finishes with no marring. You'll achieve an almost wax-ready finish in one step. That's another way the Lake Country Hydro-Tech 5.5 Inch Foam Pads save you time.

(2) 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Tangerine Ultra Polishing Foam - The tangerine foam is made for light to moderate defect removal and polishing. It has the cutting power just below that of the Lake Country orange light cutting pad, and the tangerine pad leaves a finish like you'd achieve with a gray finishing pad.

(1) 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Crimson Finishing Foam - The crimson foam is designed to apply waxes, glazes, and sealants in flawless, even coats without causing swirls. The soft foam has very light polishing ability, making it a great choice for cleaner waxes, too. Since the crimson pad is made of Hydro-Tech foam, it does not soak up liquid waxes and paint sealants like some finishing pads can. You'll be able to cover more paint with less product.

(2) Microfiber Bonnets - Each bonnet is made of the softest blend of microfiber available! Strong, durable polyester makes up 70 percent while soft, silky polyamide makes up the other 30 percent. Incredibly small fibers are woven together in a split weave that softer, thicker, and plusher than flat weave microfibers. These bonnets fit comfortably over any of the included 5 1/2 inch Hydro-Tech foam pads.

16 oz. Wolfgang Pad Werks Polishing Pad Cleaner - Cleaning your pads removes all kinds of chemicals that have been embedded into them during the buffing process. This can include all types of solvents, carrying agents, abrasives, petroleum distillates, silicones, chemical cleaners and other nasty substances. Removing the liquids and the solids that build up both on and inside of your buffing pads preserves their integrity.

16 oz. Wolfgang Pad Werks Polishing Pad Conditioner - Brand new pads and dry, clean used pads tend to be more stiff and coarse until they break-in. Wolfgang Pad Werks Polishing Pad Conditioner accelerates the break-in time to bring the pad up to maximum buffing performance. Using Wolfgang Pad Werks Polishing Pad Conditioner on a fresh pad ensures maximum performance from the pad and the polish or compound. Its advanced lubricating agents enable compounds to work longer and polish to wipe off easier.

Foam Pad Conditioning Brush - The Edge Foam Pad Conditioning Brush removes excess, caked polish and restores the usable texture to your foam pads in seconds. An angled handle and textured grip give you excellent leverage as you press the brush against a spinning pad. Don’t stop working – clean the pad and keep polishing!

2 Microfiber Detailing Towels, 16 x 16 inches - These versatile microfiber towels are great for any variety of detailing tasks, from general washing and scrubbing off road contaminants, to applying and buffing off wax and all-in-one protectants. All the Cobra Detailing Towels boast an 80/20 polyester/polyamide blend in a special “feather” weave that increases their absorption properties, guaranteeing high performance and durability.

Porter Cable 7424XP Hydro-Tech Essentials Kit.
The Porter Cable 7424XP is a very nice da polisher, well made, and dose what its suppose to do. However, the hydro-tech pads do work well, they are not very durable. I've used these pads twice now and they hace come apart, I can not use them on the Porter Cable anymore. the hook and loop part on the pad =s are now coming off. You cant use them like that.
ProsWorks as advertised
ConsHook and loop on the pads are not durable at all. Two maybe three uses only.
