Which - the Biltema or a Cyclo?
If the former, find an active member from one of the Scandanavian countries and get them to sort you one, etc.
Otherwise, no go, as they won't do mail order themselves.
If the Cyclo, then speak with Mike at thepolishingcompany.com

I know this is an old thread but.........


for the people that bought one of these in the GB how do you rate the machine.......? a friend of mine is in sweden now and is 5 mins from a biltima store so can pick 1 of these up 4 me - this would be ideal as i cant get hold of a transformer for a PC/udm and cant really justify a G220 unless i really have to...

any replies would be greatly appreciated - here or on PM.

thanks

rob

i use one since it's cheap and i live in sweden where every other machine is like ten times more expensive.. only down side with it is the size of it and it's hard to use when correcting small areas..

ok thanks for the reply, i can not really guess the size as i have not seen a picture of it with something else so i can compare the size. how big is it??

I can understand that having 2 heads it can be a bit awkward in some places but i have also head of people removing 1 of the heads so you can get into tight areas??

looking at my car i cant really see a place that would cause many probs but then again........

What do you do for pads?? I looked in the UK and prices are quite expensive

I bought one in the Group buy and it's been great. As said, it's can be a pain in some of the tighter areas but as you said I have just used one of the pads to correct things like the tops of bumpers but I left the other pad on anyway as I didn't want the head of the polisher to come into contact with the paintwork.
As for pads, I originally ordered some 3.75" ones from the states as I was starting out and was buying quite a bit in one go but have since bought them from here. The 4" ones fit ok but they do touch ever so slightly. This has never been a real problem though!
Anything else gis a shout
