Engineered to scale every angle of your car detailing job needs

The DA polishers are all engineered to meet specific needs requiring various applications in car detailing. The wide selection of polishers is designed for different orbital sizes and speeds of the motor for targeting tight and shaped areas, from light swirl marks to deep scratches. MaxShine offers a cordless polisher, which uniquely can provide both rotary and DA polisher properties when you change the module from a DA to a rotary module or vice versa.

What are the differences among the MaxShine DA Polishers?

The orbit size is the considerable difference between the models and the engineering improvements of a model. For example, M8S V2 Pro uses an 8mm orbital size, and M15 Pro adopts a 15mm orbital size. The 8mm is a short throw movement compared to the 12mm or 15mm, suitable for polishing smaller target areas. Furthermore, the motor speed contributes to use of different sizes of polisher plates and pads.

Dual-action polishers are better for new users and refined shine

Dual-action polishers generate less heat for cutting and are easier to manage than the rotary polisher. For targeted cutting or polishing small areas, dual action polishers are better and safer than rotary polishers since they dissipate heat more efficiently due to the dual motions: the circular motion and random orbital motion.
