Using Rotary with extension bar

Never used a rotary but confident to have a go- thinking of buying one for the convenience of 2 inch spot pads. Does the extension bar make rotary more difficult to control?

Not in my opinion just handles the same for me

Assuming you are going for one of the smaller compact machines such as the Shinemate EP803: http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/polish...prod_1651.html or similar then there is little difference in how they handle when you fit the extension bars.

Edit: Just seen you are looking at the 803, I have only recently just got one myself and it's a cracking little machine. Wish i'd bought one before. I'm in the process of polishing a GRP motorhome and it's make short work of getting rid of the oxidization.

That was what i was looking at previously but i wasnt in a rush and ended up keeping an eye open here and bought a dodo juice spin doctor for about 50 quid I think on the sales forum.

It's done me well and more than happy with it. I went down the second hand route in case I didn't like it but it's still my goto over the DA and still going strong so a great buy for me

I purchased the flex pe 8 -4 a few months ago brilliant little rotary and so easy to get into the difficult spots with the extension bar and 1 inch pads. Highly recommended
