Im torn what to get. i really want to buy the meguiars g110v2 heard a lot of great things about it. But i want to hear input on the gg6 and the PC 7424. I love my rotary, but the pad is too big for me, and i want a more forgiving tool. thanks!

I haven't tried any other machines besides my PC 7424. I'm a total noob at detailing and it's pretty easy for me to handle the machine. It does the job it was designed for.

Megs and the PC are basically the same thing..the Megs has some trq control if you put more pressure its supposed to up it to keep pad spinning. I hear same things about it as PC..its under powered and bogs down way to easy. Plus it cost the most of the 3..Get the griots and be done..has most power and will keep pad spinning long after those 2 have stopped

So the PC and GG are the same, but the GG is better? I guess that confuses me a little bit. also meguiars makes good products thats why i was looking at it, assuming it was just as good as everything else. Doesnt the GG come with a lifetime warrenty?

He said pc and Meg's are the same. I have a gg and I'm new to detailing. I had a harbor freight and upgraded to it and love it. I don't see my self getting anything better like a rupes or flex anytime soon. GG is very user friendly, easy to control, and plenty of power. And yes the new gg has a lifetime warranty.

Don't start with a rotary man, a da is fool proof unless you make it a mission to go through the clear coat like a moron. They're so easy to use.

i opted for the GG myself; after comparing everything it came down to it having more power and the warranty. It is my first machine and turned out to be very easy to control and work with. im real pleased with its construction and performance. a solid piece of equipment that works as advertised.

Go with the GG, more power + lifetime warranty = win!

I have it and love it, will never get another unless the Rupes comes down in price.

OP:

For the Price/warranty and power combo, its VERY hard to beat the GG man.

For a first DA and for the price man, go for it. The PC is crap dont even think about it.

Just be sure to get a 5" backing plate to use with 5.5" pads, thats a little easier and more versatile to use than 6.5" pads, plus they are cheaper lol.

I have meguiars g110v2 and the cruise control feature give it the edge over the pc because it doesn't bog down and you get more correction done, I've had mine for 3 years and it hasn't given me any problems and its overall a great machine with more then enough power but still beginner friendly.

What about when you put some pressure on it, does it bog down or keep its speed?

The polisher has a feedback circuit that increases torque when it feels downward pressure so it can keep its speed, that's its cruise control feature.

So you've never had a problem with it slowing down?

No , like I said the cruise control feature helps it retain its speed.

Well that's the one I really want to get. So it's good to hear good feedback. What about the quality over of the machine?
