FREE SHIPPING - Makita Sander and Polisher - 10 Amp, 3000 RPM, 7in. Disc Size, Model# 9227CX3
This is an great polisher. Ive used many in the past and I would have to say this is by far the best polisher I have used.

Good, but not great...
I've used MANY polishers over the years, from cheapo one speed Craftsmans, to the higher end Porter Cables and Dewalt's and I have to say that this Makita is right in the middle of the pack.
First off, noise. This one is noisier then most of them. Not sure why though either.
As for the features it's not lacking in that department. One important feature being the lock on button for continuos use, something that many sanders/polisher lack!
Compared to my favorite, the Hitachi SP18VAH, the Makita is noiser, less powered, slower (Hitachi 3400 rpms vs 3000 Makita), and heavier! However the Makita is well balanced and works awesomely.
So at the end of the day I would still prefer the Hitachi over the Makita, but the Makita is no slouch!

makita 9227cx3 polisher
This is another example of the quality products Makita produces. Very comfortable to use, well balanced and powerful. It never strains even under the heaviest loads and after long hours of use. I am very pleased with the overall operation of this buffer and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a professional grade product.

I have this machine and love it. Never has it let me down like some other polishers I have owned. I have owned this one for over 3 years and use it on my truck quite often.

Ok unit, Dewalt has better design. Unit can be awkward to use due to the handle design. Makiita has good quality and is reliable.

I've never had a problem with it get almost constant use and abuse and it never false to perform perfectly. I would recomend this tool to anyone who wants the best tool for their money. Great power tool.

I highly recommend Makita
My makita polisher has worked flawlessly for 6 years straight without an issue unlike Dewalt tools that fail after the 1 year warranty expired. I use my polisher daily.

Bought this tool top polish my Oday Mariner sailboat, what a difference this tool makes. My boat is a 1973 and it now has a mirror finish. I like the velcro buffing pads and the centering tool. Very smooth. Idid the hull in about 1 1/2 hours, compared to doing it by hand in 8 hours.
I plan on getting some foam pads to do my car. I had a cheap electric buffer that did not do anything but smear the polish around. This Makita does not slow down when pressure is applied.
