Question Vertool Forced Drive

Hi All

My Vertool forced drive arrived this morning from clean your car feels like a nice solid piece of kit and should compliment my Das Pro nicely with the spot pads. My question is from reading other threads it's apparent that its important to keep the pad flat otherwise the Vertool will start to walk you.

Can't quite see how you can keep the pad flat going over the curve of a wing etc though, or do you all mean follow the curve with the central diameter of the pad rather than following the curve with the front or back edge of the pad?

Well the weathers looking good for the weekend so I guess I'll find out.

Any advise please.

Cheers

Bruce

Put on a soft pad and use the least aggressive polish you have and test your theories with practice.
But yeah, basically your right.

Use the pad flat on a horizontal panel it will feel fine. Lift one side up slightly and you will soon feel it trying to walk.
Takes 5 minutes to adjust to the Vertool then you are good to go. I moved from my DAS6 (still use for spot pads) to my Vertool FD.
