Makes Car Care So Much Easier!
August 9, 2014
I bought a new C7 Corvette and want to keep her beautiful all the time. I read up on orbital polishers online and found that for the money the Griots looked like one of the best. I was not disappointed! This polisher is so well balanced and works like a dream. It runs smooth and cool and applies the polishes and removes them with ease. Never again will I hand wax/polish another car. Get this polisher and you will not be disappointed.
Plenty of power Runs cool Low vibration Lightweight
Should have splurged for the longer cord

Newbie Friendly Polisher

All I had to do was to watch some YouTube videos and follow those instructions to polish my car. Used BlackFire Total Polish and Seal and Crystal Seal. The result was fantastic. I read a lot of reviews of this and the Porter Cable one. The Porter Cable one's little cheaper, but I chose this because of their unbeatable warranty, life-time.
Price, powerful, warranty
It would've been better if it came with a 5-inch backing plate.

more for your money

i used a porter cable for almost 6 years and this is way quieter, stronger, and smoother. i really wish i would have gotten this sooner. you get a lot more than what you spent on it, and it works really well with a 5"backing plate and pads as well
smoother than porter cable quieter than porter cable stronger than porter cable about same price as porter cable

Great for a rookie
April 13, 2015
This is my first polisher and I was very concerned I might damage my paint. Everyone recommended this polisher and said it would be impossible to damage the car unless I tried to. They were right. I detailed my car this weekend and had no problems and the results were incredible. My paint job looks like a mirror and this was very easy to use. Minimal learning curve.
Ease of use. Safe to use. Easy to handle.

Great product
March 24, 2015
This is my first DA polisher purchase. I did an endless amount of research and finally purchased the GG. The unit is fabulous. Great ergonomics, easy to use, powerful. I love that the handle centers my hand over the polisher pad. Seems very well made and has a lifetime warranty. Great purchase.
Powerful, smooth, well made.

I recently took delivery of my second one of these polishers. My other one is the second generation machine while this one is the third generation. While the internals and functions are identical, the refinements make this a more user friendly polisher. The soft rubber grip on the handle is a nice touch, though I use it without the handle as I find handles in general too bulky and prefer to place my hand directly on the machine right over the pad so I can apply even and direct pressure. This also allows me to have a better feel for what the machine is actually doing. Just my preference. Also the variable speed selector has been moved to the top rear edge from the end where the cord attaches. This makes adjusting the speed on the fly much easier and you know at a glance exactly what speed you're on. The old setup is awkward. It's nice when a company listens to customer feedback and implements that feedback in its product updates. Kudos to Griots Garage for this! This polisher has the most powerful motor in this class of polishers. Through personal experience with this machine, I have found that it works better with a 5" backing plate and 5-1/2" pads. It will bog down and stop rotating with the supplied 6" backing plate and 6-1/2" pads. 6-1/2" pads are also thicker which causes the power of the machine to get absorbed into the pad material, thus making it more likely to bog down and stop rotating. I have no such problems with the lower profile 5-1/2" pads. In fact this machine is a beast with the smaller pads installed on it. It works fantastic with microfiber pads. Out of a week's worth of details, I only reach for my Flex 3401 an average of twice a week and I use my rotary polishers once or twice a month to take out serious scratches, defects or after I've wet sanded something. Other than that, this is my machine of choice for it's versatility and its size. Is it as refined as a Rupes Bigfoot? Absolutely not. But it doesn't cost the $400.00 the Bigfoot 21 does and it has far more power and won't bog down the way the Bigfoot 15 does. And yes, I have those machines too. I don't like the Bigfoot 15 and will be giving it to a family member and I use the Bigfoot 21 when I'm doing large vehicles with large, flat body panels where it's at it's best. I would say that 95% of what I do is accomplished with this machine with 5-1/2" pads, my Flex 3401 (also with the smaller backing plate and 5-1/2" pads) and my Porter Cable 7424XP with a 2-3/4" backing plate and and 3" pads for smaller areas. When I need more correction ability I use the trusty rotary when only a rotary will do. I probably use the Rupes 21 two or three times a month when I have to do a Suburban, Escalade or a big van or pickup with mostly large, flat panels. Then that's the best machine. In short, if you're a weekend enthusiast or new to the detailing business, this is a great machine to cut your teeth on and you can't really get into any trouble with it. It's the logical step up from the Porter Cable. (when I started out years ago out of the trunk of my car all I had was the original Porter Cable 7424.......not even the XP) It has plenty of power (especially with a 5" backing plate and 5-1/2" pads) and the price is very reasonable when you can't justify or afford spending more. This will do the job just fine. Plus it has a lifetime warranty. If you get to the point where volume of production becomes an issue and you need to speed things up, then you may need to consider moving to the Flex and the Rupes, but it's not really necessary until that point. Just trying to be a voice of reason as someone who has all of the machines I've mentioned and uses them all. If you have the money and want to get one of the latest and greatest, go for it. I have them and they're great machines in their own rights. But you also can't go wrong with this machine. Factor in its price point and the lifetime warranty it becomes a real bargain. And I know from experience that Griots Garage stands behind their products. I killed my first generation machine I had and they sent me the second generation machine I have now as a replacement. No questions asked. That's nice peace of mind. Nobody else will do that. Not Flex, not Porter Cable, not Rupes and not Meguiars.
Power (especially when used with a 5" backing plate) Ease of use Unparalleled warranty Price
Not as refined or smooth as a Flex or Rupes, but you can buy 2 of these and a full set of pads for less than those machines.

Compared to similar machines this is a beast. far more power than a porter cable. Decent stock backing plate. The lifetime warranty is something nobody else can offer. Appropriate speed adjustments. Switch is in a good spot

Best polisher for the hobbyist!
September 4, 2014
The GG6" simply gets the job done. It may not get heavy correction done as fast as a Rupes or a Flex, but what it lacks there it definitely makes up for in versatility. It can accept 6",5",3.5",3", and 2" backing plates meaning you can use just about any pad money can buy. Plus if your a hobbyist like the title says are you really trying to rush the polishing jobs that you do maybe a couple times a year? It is more powerful than all the other machines in its class though so it will correct faster than a PC 7424XP, G110v2, or the HF DA. It comes with a lifetime warranty from Griots as well so you don't have to worry about a thing and they actually do stand by it, just don't mess around other the machine on your own. The HD option is a good thing but I just use a an extension cord and have never had problem as long as I use the Velcro that is on the included cord to keep them together.

absolutely love it
March 3, 2014
I got a deal on this polisher because a customer traded it in on a flex. I planned on getting a rupes or flex but didn't do enough corrections. This was a no brainer for the price. It works so much faster and better than my OLD porter cable which is roughly 8-9 years old. I have a custom cut backing plate from Kevin Brown for 5 inch pads where the plate comes exactly to the edge. this transfers the energy and pressure to all of the pad. This polisher combined with megs mf pads and d300 is a monster.
power is great fast easy to use and comfortable
