Upgrade DA

My DAS 6 is a little tired and I want to replace/upgrade .

Seen the V2 and Pro Plus Das versions quite a difference in cost.

I'd like something that can slow right down to where we want the rpm's especially for burnishing.

Anyone got these new 880W motors , what they like to use (both machines) ?? The new 15mm throw etc?

Advantages/disadvantages if any?
Any other machines to consider in the same kind of budget area?.
I don't mind going a bit higher for a good machine

Many thanks
Mike

Edit- I have my Mankita for the tougher stuff.

I wanted an upgrade from my DAS6 and have been doing a bit of reading. I’ve got a Vertool Forced Drive machine arriving tomorrow.
I’m keeping the DAS6 to use with spot pads. I came to the conclusion that the forced drive would be better to me than a longer throw machine.
You can get in2detailing own brand forced drive machine which has a 900w motor for around £160.
I went for the Vertool Sonax kit from CYC which has a 1200w motor for £199.

The Forensic Detailing channel on YouTube has a review of the in2detailng forced drive and long throw machines. Good information there.

Whats the slower range rpm for a DA . 2500rpm seems a little high for a slow setting ?

Or is that about right?

Happy new Year .

Bought at the correct time then. It was a no brainer paying an extra £10 for the pads and polish. I used the DW05 as well.
I aslo got some spot pads for my DAS6.

If you want a forced drive machine check out In2detailing £159.95 (also discount code to use on top)

Only found out about M&K after I had purchased my Vertool, but they have their own forced drive machine for £165. Don't know if they have a discount code.

M&K are also doing a kit for £297 which gives you options.

Mini & 900 DA
Mini & Forced Drive
Forced Drive & 900 DA

You get pads and polishes as well, with the kit version. Don't know what the machines are like but the kit looks good value for money.
