So it takes the same pads as you would get for a PC?

It takes 4 inch pads but 3.75 inch would be better

Timmo its not qite he smae as this one has variable speed control so you can wax with it too and turn the speed down a bit when needed!

Brazo, hopefully my contact will be sorting me out with a Biltema soon. Where do you get your pads from please? I see C&S do the Lake Country ones but they do seem a little pricey - wondering if there are cheaper alternatives that are just as effective?

cheers,
Paul

Heard back from him yesterday. He's got one and is posting it today hopefully so I'll expect to have it in about a week.

€29.90 Polisher
€2.00 Extra Box to pack it in
€39.80 Finish Airmail

All in all around £50 which is fine by me - a PC is going to work out quite a lot more by the time you add transformers and cables etc and as I think I said this is for a couple of new vehicles so it's arguable if a polisher is necessary at all.

cheers,
Paul

You prepared to ship some over to the UK then? Sure you will get a list of at least 10 people that are interested!
