Rotary polisher noise

I've not bought a rotary since my Silverline 'SilverStorm' back in 2010. Just wondering if things have moved on as there seems to be alot of options now.

Top of my wish list would be a quieter machine...I like to get going as early as possible when a full day of correction is needed but feel bad with the neighbours as the silver line is quite noisy. Is there any particularly quiet machines or are they all much of a muchness?

Try a Flex. Something like the PE14-2-150.

Isnt that a £35 machine. Its not a case of have things moved on, its a case of have you got the money to buy something tidy this time

The Silverline is pretty much an entry level machine and you would not expect it to perform as quietly or as well as a more upmarket model

Flex as mentioned above is around £350 but I suppose there must be decent models cheaper than that?

Does it have to be a Rotory? you can buy a good DA for around £100.

Not fussed on cost, I like to get the best if I’m going to have a splurge and it’s justified. Just wondering if more money necessarily buys you a quieter machine

As mentioned above - the Flex PE14 rotary is pretty quiet...certainly in comparison to the 3401 which makes serious noise!

Just watched the forensic detailing review of the flex PE14. Sounds like it’s a good machine!

I can confirm this statement, i used one during my one to one visit to Autoglym HQ a while back(which can be found around here somewhere) and this is spot on for the Flex rotary.

I just use ear defenders. Peltor Optime 3.

None of them are quiet when they are 18 inches from your face
