orbital waxers/polishers

does anyone use a random orbital waxer/polisher to apply and take off polish and wax. ive heard that if you buy the wrong one, it will burn the paint of you car. Can someone give me good brand names of those machines. I saw one that Maguiers has, but its like $200. I don't want to pay that much. please help.

I do not use a buffer on my civic. But I do use one on my truck. I perfer air buffers, you can adjust the amount of air that flows through it. So that way you can adjust the speed!

orbital's don't ruin your car's paint it's the person using em. I personally don't like them, but then some people love em. If you're looking for a really good one go to griotsgarage.com -those guys know their stuff. Doing the job by hand is all you really need and if you screw up you can usually fix what you've done. Orbitals arent always as forgiving. My advice-just stick with the hand stuff. If you got the money just put it to something like an CAI or something. Text

I used my orbital buffer on my Integra when I had it, I haven't had a chance to use it on the Civic though...

Just don't put any pressure down on the buffer, just go over the surface lightly....If you push down on it, you leave swirl marks
