Guys

used my machine for the first time to carry out some correction on my bonnet. I noticed after about 20 - 30 mins of use it became very hot on started to smoke. It was very hot to the touch, unfortunatley i was half way through the correction on the bonnet and had to fall back to the Das_6 to complete the correction on the bonnet.

Anyone had any experience like this i thought perhaps it was stiil all bedding in but it did become very hot but i didnt smell any actual burning.

Any thoughts ?

The polishers can run hot as with any of the rotaries and Dual Action polishers. However you are the first to report back with a real issue about the machine.

I take it reading your post it was literally just hot, but it didn't stop working. I'm hoping the smoke you reported was just residue oil or grease burning off the motor.

I completed a full correction on a Audi S3 at the weekend with a new one and really tried to give it some abuse and it faired extremely well. Infact I was really impressed and very happy with the machine in how well it performed. It definitely feels even smoother now it's bedded in. We even went to the lengths of dismantaling it to check for any wear on the components after the detail.

All I can say have another go and see how you get on.

I found, initially after approx 15 minutes it became quite hot and was quite noisy, i cacked it a little so I turned it off lol....tried again after thinking that it might be like any motor, needs running in, so i tried 3 more times, just runing for 15 minutes a time..after my 5th try I noticed it still get warm but nowhere near as much as it did and i also noticed the noise levels were dropping slightly.so my personal conclusion is.yeah.new motor, parts not fully lubricated in and time will correct it......still beats my silverline anyday, the weight differnce is admittedly only small but believe me it really feels like the ep800 is half the weight.

I can confirm it was very hot and was smoking (without any burning) and it didnt stop working. I agree it certainly maybe the oils buring off but didnt see the same sort of thing on the Das_6 pro when i used that.

I will ceratinly be using this again and know that it will always be backed by CYC excellent after sales service.

Hope no-one saw the above as a critisism of the CYC rotary just something i had experienced when using for the first time.

Will report back following my next use soon.

cheers
