Our Arc Angel DAS-15 orbital machine polisher (UK spec, 900w) is a 15mm long throw machine for a larger area polished with each revolution of the pad, saving time, and giving an even safer, lower temperature cut. It's also a clutched machine, so if you've heard scare stories about burning through paint with rotary machines, this long throw DA with a clutched action is as safe as it gets. Lower panel temps due to the orbital action and slippage if needed at low speeds if you use too much pressure...
Of course, with 900W you'll still be able to get the job done, whatever the hardness of paint, assuming the right polish, pads and process. Despite having a 15mm throw it's remarkably smooth and pleasant to use. Use it for low cut finishing or grab a Fibre Scyther microfibre pad and some Depth Charge heavier cut compound for attacking harder paints - but remember, machine polishing requires research, skill and practice for the best results.
Overall, the Arc Angel is well made, comes with a full 2 year guarantee and offers excellent performance for an affordable price. It comes with a 125mm (5 inch) backing plate, spare brushes and an extra-long 6m cable with a UK three pin plug. That's double the length of some cables and means you won't be fighting with an extension lead for half your life!
This kit also gives you 3x grades of polish and 4x types of pad to get you going and provide a full 'turn key' machine polishing set-up.

Please note: machine polishing can cause irreversible damage to paint and should only be undertaken once confident that results can be achieved safely. Always research machine polishing thoroughly, test on practice panels or inconspicuous areas initially and start with light cut products and processes when working on 'live' paint until you achieve competence.
