CYC Rotary review..

Hi Guys

A few weeks ago Tim sent me one of his new CYC Rotary polishers

http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/polish.../prod_854.html


Over the last few days we have been giving it a real thrashing and I am pleased to say that for a small light rotary its a great little machine for anyone wanting to enter the world of rotary polishing.
I swapped the backing plate that comes supplied with a 3M backing plate as these are what I use on the Makita and off I went.
I used it in the same way as I would the Makita and although nothing comes close to a Makita in my mind it did suprise me as to how well it worked.
Its light and the extra lenght of lead makes a nice addition and the fact it comes complete with a CYC bag for neat storage.
The motor does get a bit quieter after running it for a while as I think with it being a new machine the inner parts just need a bit of wearing in.

I gave it to Ian who works for me that has never picked up a machine and set him away on my S4 with a little tuition and he said that he didnt find it a problem and the machine was nice to control. (by the end of the week my S4 will be mint )

So all in all a very nice machine and for the money you really cant go wrong.

This review is totally impartial and my own. (even though the £50 off Tim did help)

Genuinly cool little machine that will be in VM's arsenal

I got mine on Friday but I've not had a chance to use it yet. I'm interested to are how the supplied backing plate performs as it looks and feels very good. Why did you decide to not use it?

The only reason is that I like the foam 3M backing plates and it was Ians first time using a machine.
I will be having a play with the supplied backing plate tomorrow myself and will give my opinion.

Cheers Robbie, sounds like a good back up machine, or for doing sides of cars.
