Best DA polisher for £100 or less

Have seen a lot about the DAS-6 from CYC and heard some good things but was looking earlier and saw one on Slims with pads for £83. I'm only a beginner and will only be correcting a few cars so can't yet justify spending any more.

TIA guys

im sure it will be a good machine, I cant think of any others off top of my head for less than £100, I have just found one on ebay, the DAS6 PRO PLUS, no bids yet but and no idea what they make. In the beginning there is a lot to learn and getting a good knowledge and technique even the DAS-6 will do some good correction. Have you seen the guide on DA polishing?

I have been looking at this one it has 2xbacking plates and pads. Looks good but I don't know if anyone has one.

In the same boat as you mate. Looking at getting my first machine, and wondering whether the pro/pro+ are going to be worth my while over the base DAS-6. They do have some cracking prices on Slims.

I can't comment on the actual machine but as said above I'm sure it will be a decent machine.

Slims are a good company so pretty sure they won't sell a poor machine.

At the end of the day you pay for what you get BUT what you want to use it for is key. For what you say you're going to use it for I'd say go for it. If you were an experienced user and did lots of cars I'd say no but for a first machine on your own car or a couple of friends it should be up to the task

The DAS6 Pro is about 50% more powerful than the Duren machine linked above. This allows you to correct paint more quickly, all things being equal. That said, when you're starting out the power of the machine is rarely the limiting factor in how quickly you can get the job done so for your purposes I don't think it matters, save the money for something else (eg some polishes )

I presumed the Slim's ones were a das6 just with the Slim's name.
