    I have 2 PC's for sell.

    50.00 plus 10.00 shipping for either. One's a G100 and has lifetime warranty.

    Let me know.

    PC stands for Porter cable. Just those lazy ass's on autopia and a few other places like to call the porter cable dual action buffers pc's but there are plenty of other Dual action's out there that work just as good or better. With a dual action you'll be able to work a good amount of swirl marks out and some light scratches. For deeper scratches and whatnot you'll need to hit it with a rotary. Using a DA you realllllly need to try your best in order to fuck up. With a rotary you can easily burn paint/clear due to the speeds the buffer head spins at.


    With that being said it comes down to what you need to use one for? Is this just for weekend detailing of your car and nothing major? If so then look for a nice deal on either a portcable DA or a Dewalt DA both worth very well. If you need to really work on your paint Portercable and dewalt both make great rotary's that have a great range of speeds. makita also makes a good rotary that is much lighter then the others which some people like but it also is limited with its speeds but it gets the job done.

    I'd go with the UDM vs the PC. Definitely more powerful but still has a safe orbital action that won't leave rotary swirls.
