    Brothers birthday coming up and decided to get him a nice buffer.

    What are your thoughts on it? I was thinking about getting the 7428, but since its his first, i dont want to. I want something cheaper and but yet still delivers great results.

    Also, could you suggest some good products to go along with this? Much appreciated!

    Nothing cheaper than the PC 7424 is worth even bothering with. The cheapies have weak motors and poor choice of buffing medium.

    You can usually find the 7424 for around $120 with the proper counterweight and backing plate and you can get pads at www.exceldetail.com for around $8 each.

    :cool: Appreciate it.

    What's your opinion on the 7428? I saw it going for $175 on detailersparadise.com

    I picked up a 7336 from lowes for right at $100

    I use it with LC pads on a 6" backing plate, and it works perfectly. The 7336 already has the proper counterweight for the 6" pads, so there is nothing extra to buy.

    The 7428 is a rotary buffer and really takes some practice to use proficiently. The 7424 or 7336 are DA/RO buffers and are much easier to use. No chance of burning paint either.

    Is there a significant difference between the 7424 and the 7336? I just bought the 7336 to satisfy my 'gotta get it now' urge, but can return it if its inferior

    Actually, the 7336 should run a touch smoother because it has the 6" counterweight to the 7424's 5" counterweight...and that is the ONLY difference.

    BTW, if your 7336 came with a white polishing pad, don't use it because it is a crappy pad that will mar the paint. 6.5" pads work best with PCs, btw.
