It worked great for 1.5 cars. but it broke, so I had to contact Griots but it was fairly easy to contact them to get it replaced
Prosvary balanced and little vibrations
Consbroke and that hurt my feelings
Great kit, 5" backing plate is what you need

Nice buffer and the kit is amazing. Totally worth it to purchase the kit, you get a lot for the extra $40 difference from tool only purchase. The 6" backing plate that comes with the tool is just useless, so you might end up to buy the 5" separate if not in the kit, pads are always good, specially when you just get into this game. The 4 stars is for the tool stalling over any edge (maybe I need to get used to it) and those microfiber towels are poor quality, put them in the garbage or just keep them to clean the tool at the end of the job, not good for anything else.
Pros5" plate included all pads you need to start the job included quality polisher with lifetime warranty - can't beat that
Conspolisher stalling on edges poor quality microfiber towels in this kit

Purchased this earlier this year and have been waiting to use it a full year before reviewing. Very happy with the polisher and the pads. I have performed minor paint correction on a Subaru Outback and a Ford Focus with fantastic results. Might have to expand the tool set to the G8 as well now.

G9 STANDS FOR GREAT 9
December 18, 2020
ONLY 4 STARS FOR NOW. EASY TO USE LIGHT AND POWERFUL. MUST SEE HOW THIS HOLDS UP OVER TIME. WISH THEY PROVIDED ANOTHER RED PAD. WHY ONLY ONE AND OTHER PADS TWO IS A MYSTERY.
ProsLight Powerful Value for the price
ConsOnly one red pad

Griot's G9 Random Orbital Polisher and Pad Kit
November 7, 2020
I used it with the 5” backing plate that was a part of the kit. I got great results using Klasse AIO with a Lake Country 5.5” White polishing pad. I didn’t have any issues with the G9 trigger (yet! Just used the G9 once) which others have reported. Really light and very stable no issues with vibration using the speed setting of 5.
Pros1. Lightweight 2. Easy to use. 3. Powerful
Great for novices!

I’m still relatively new with paint correction and the G9 is probably the best for newbies. It delivers on great power as well as design, the detachable cable is a plus for storage and ergonomic design feels comfortable for hours of paint work.
ProsVery little vibration Great price, especially for the kit Awesome design Detachable cable for storage
ConsStalls on angles or areas that aren't flat but this is to be expected with this style of polisher.
Everything You Need to Get Started

The Griot's G9 is an awesome random orbital polisher! The 5.5 Flat Pad Complete Kit gives you all the testing pads you need to dial in what works for you. The 5" plate is just the right size, but just in case, you also get the 6" plate along with it! As a first timer, I found the G9 very easy to handle, comfortable, and intuitive to use. This made the whole process less intimidating, and I was able to relax and have some fun. It has more than enough power to do the job, yet it's forgiving enough for a newbie like me. Nice job Griot's.
ProsEverything you need to get started. Easy and intuitive to handle. Fun to use. More than enough power.
