Ryobi Combo - top value!

Just picked up a Ryobi buffer in a combo pack from Bunnings for $99 ($89 staff discount) and it comes with buffer and two buffing cloths, and a mini vacuum cleaner!

Its simply awesome, just chucked 3 coats of polish on the front 1/4 panel and it came up like new! No effort at all, can't wait to wash the car again and give it TWO coats of polish in about 40mins hehehe.

Highly recommended!

Re: Ryobi Combo - top value!

hmmm interesting, i have been wanting to get a buffer machine (very tiring doing it by hand). But i have been worried about them causing swirl marks. What are your thoughts on that??

Sounds like another case of Severe Acute Strider Syndrome™ to me!

As for the lack of effort required, that sounds right up my alley! :s6:

As far as I can tell it removed my existing swirl marks, I think it depends on how clean the cloth and car is. I will do some experiments and take some photos prob about tuesday and we'll see how we go.

I think it is excellent, so far...!

Re: Ryobi Combo - top value!

I am interested too. Piccys would be great. Owning a black car the great "swirl mark issue" is a big one for me.

Re: Ryobi Combo - top value!

Ok guys, this from a Bunnings dude himself (me)

These combo things look ok. Some of you may remember some companies brought out little polishers, and they really sucked. These things are now much bigger, come with a thick foam base (aboput an inch think in high density foam) and i reckon it would be REALLY hard to burn your paint, these things just dont have the RPM. Havent had any negative feedback as yet......
