Ryobi polisher?????

published

After reading glowing reviews I purchased the polisher purely for buffing up my the fibreglass on my boat.
I found this unit to be absolutely useless, the slightest pressure on the pads and unit stops rotating, just basically vibrates with no result.
Great idea Ryobi but does not perform, is not powerful enough.
Spoke to Ryobi via Bunnings and was told this unit not suitable for fibreglass only "spot" polishing??.

Awesome little polisher

published

Great for a quick cut n polish at home, didn't think it would cope being so small but it powers through my statesman without changing batteries. For the price it is a great little buffer and not hard on the arms to use either. Perfect for any level of car enthusiast

Fantastic! No more cords!!

I was a bit dubious because of the size of the pad, but after using it I couldn't do without it! Not for full on scratch removals, etc. but for a gentle wax/polish is perfect.

I can't find the link, but they do have replacement pads for it in the tool section.

Hi Jarod, I bought some recently from Bunnings. They weren't ryobi brand, but they work just fine!
Just make sure you get the right diameter as there are a few different sizes.

2 Is it used to apply compound/polish as well as buffing
3 What approx area is completed before pad change is required.
4 How many pads supplied.
5 Are extra pads available, at what cost.
6 How long does a fully charged battery last in polish mode

1; No, it's not fast enough to burn paint like a 12" grinder type polisher, it's more a gentle wax/polish tool i.e. Ideal for regular wax application.
2&4; it comes with a terry towelling type applicator and a lambs wool pad - as above, if wanting to cut/remove scratches I'd buy a 12" grinder type polisher.
3; I do the entire vehicle in the terry towelling pad, then the entire vehicle in the lambs wool cloth.
5; I purchased two replacement pads at Bunnings for $16 recently (one of each pads)
6; two 1.5 ah batteries seem to work for me, but I'd reckon one 5 ah battery would do the job.
****Please note***** I do not work for Ryobi, nor am I a panel beater, I'm merely a guy that likes to keep his vehicles nice and clean and this is PURELY personal opinion!
