    Is anyone thinking of selling a decent DA polisher for a reasonable price?

    If so please get in touch by PM with details.

    Thanks

    If you are not on Detailing World there is a decent group buy with or without polish for reasonable money with Clean Your Car.

    People also regularly flog their pre-owned DAs on there as well.

    Hope that helps.

    If not on Detailing World register as there is a decent Group Buy rate with or without polish.

    Also a section for selling gear and people regularly do sell pre-owned.

    Hope that helps.

    thats the one,set speed to no1 to spread the polish then increase slowly finish on no 5 or 6 its a good piece of kit.you must switch machine off before lifting it off vehicle or the sponge pad will dissintigrate

    Can't argue with the price and if you find it does the job then that's a good find.

    Only thing I'd say is DA polisher or certainly the ones I was referring to are generally 800w+ so think they are more powerful...

    In my experience, the Silverline tools I've bought are cheap for a reason, 3 year guarantee or not.

    Just saying...

    I've used lots for both boats and cars - the best by far for a keen enthusiast is this. If you look on DW you can find a discount code for £15 off.

    That's a rotary - Silverline also sell a similar model which I still have. The DAs are a lot easier to use.

    DA's are a lot safer especially for beginners. DA's generally take longer than a rotary though ... that's the trade off.
