I love the Griot's Machines. I have the G15 and now that my non-Griots 8mm machine is one job away from death I decided to get the G9 to replace it. I was so excited to get it I used it right away. Well balanced machine, little to no Vibration, good on curves. The speed dial has nice tactical feed back and I like that you can access it from both sides. A+ product. The pads are of course good quality but I want to say this for novice users, the griots fast correction microfibers have no foam backing. The pads are very close to the backing plate itself so be careful using them. I like using a foam interface between the pad and backing plate and you can buy them separately. It's a good safety measure. Can't go wrong with the machine, great kit if you have medium -hard paint.
ProsQuality products and savings

My 2005 silver Camry never looked so good, I was very pleased with the results. The G9 was easy to use and comfortable to hold.
ProsGood balance, the pad kit is a good selection, best choice for me!

Purchased a Griots G9 because its the best Polisher. Ordered the G9 with bonus pad combo. Pricing was great, used a promo code. Got free shipping which is always great! Item arrived well packaged and no problems at all.
ConsBonus pads are nice just wish they included more orange pads.

Only used it couple of times. I think it powerful liked they advertised. Comfortable to handle.
ProsPowerful comfortable handles on all angles. Easy to change from 6? to 5? backing plates. Great idea to have removable core.

Not a pro. Never really got into detailing until recently. Purchased a new vehicle and wanted to apply waxes and sealants with machine for ease of application. Bought this set as a beginner looking to venture into machine polishing to maintain my cars paint. GG is the perfect entry level polisher for my needs, and I’m sure many others out there. This set includes enough to get anyone started and at a great price.
ProsPrice. Got mine on sale and discount so it was well worth the purchase. Includes enough variety to get any DIYer started into polishing.

Nice consumer product that can run all day with good ergonomics. I spent six hours on my travel trailer (not done yet) and was impressed that this unit never lagged and was not nearly as heavy as you would expect. Little things like the hold on the front and adjustable handle were appreciated. Decent price too.. This will spend most of its time in storage, then be used for hours straight. Now worries Get on now, but order more pads.
ProsLight for what it can do No quit Easy pad/disk change with tools included
Rock solid product

Reasonably priced. Meets my needs perfectly. Only short coming is I'd like the cord to be about 5' longer.

Spend a little more for the longer cord!

This is my first experience with a power polisher and it makes life much easier. It doesn't have variable speeds or maybe all the features of others but I gave it five stars because it works like it's supposed to at a very fair price. Very happy overall.

my first poisher so i cant compare to others but it worked, and worked for 6 hours or more straight. the back plate got warm, but it never effected the pads or the performance. i didnt use much else that came with this kit other than the towels which worked just fine. i tried the orange griots garage pad and it dusted entirely too much. luckily i had bought some lake country pads that didnt dust at all.
Prosget a few extra things for the cost of the polisher and backplate
Consyour going to need an extension or cord reel as the cord wasnt long enough for my small or average garage

I have two of these and use the smaller backing plate. Griot's Garage makes a great DA polisher. Any thing they produce is done with pride.
ProsWorks very well and can do the job with the right products. I have the longer cord on the two I have, the shorter cord would be just fine.
ConsDon't know if it's a con or not, would like the Boss G15 backing plate on it. Nothing against Griot's Garage it's more to Autogeek, it seems like I order something and a few days later they have a better sale, it may be just my timing.
