  1. Don Lemay

    Great service and great price.

  2. Eddie Castellanos

    Top notch!! The new polisher is powerful enough to accomplish any detailing tasks with professional results. Customer service and delivery times are second to none. I strongly recommend it.

  3. Michael Jones

    Good communications. Arrived sooner than expected. DA works great. I have never used one before but it was easy.

  4. Kevin Burke

    As a beginner, the M8S worked very well, It made short work removing the haze from my long neglected ’86 pickup. So far I have only used the compounding disk. Looking forward to polish and waxing the truck. The M8 is definitely up to the task.

  5. Daniel Wallin

    Awesome product. The unit is very comfortable, light and effective. The speed settings make it easy to use this for different applications.

  6. Roy Fernandez

    The Product I got works great and is one i would definitely recommend the Maxshine M8S V2 8mm/1000W Dual Action Polisher, BUT the customer service was atrocious, I had entered a discount code and chose free shipping but it had charged me for expedited i had screen shots to prove this as my order said free shipping on there site but showed $30 and on the confirmation email it showed Expedited shipping without my discount code , i emailed them with several screen shots showing them what i ordered along with the discrepancy between what the website finalized order said and the 2 emails said , even the warehouse manager didn’t understand why everything was different but proceeded to just say it must have been my fault (at this point it did not even sound like he looked at my screenshots) at some point he said well it shows this here and this here on one of the pics but didnt know why the other ones were different or charged different. To cut the story short they gave me the difference back which im grateful for since initially they wanted to just process a complete refund after i shipped it back and wanted me to reorder rather then just credit the difference. I would order from Maxshine again only because this kinda issue im hopping is a 1 off and they didn’t know what to do but its extremely off putting to be blamed that it must have been something i did when they don’t know what happened and i have screen shots. But the product is amazing no issues with it and recommend

  7. Joshua Mullins

    What an amazing piece of equipment especially for the price!

  8. Gregory Bernal

    Got to say the free shipping was super fast. Used a code by Josh v from YouTube to give me extra savings. Nice lil bundle. This is my 1st polisher so I hope it last a while. Used it this weekend and it was nice. Made heavy duty. Only small complaint is it runs a lil hot but. I’m not sure it that’s just how all polishers are being that this is my first one.

  9. Victor Ponce

    Really good DA polisher… easy to use, incredible results

  10. Robert Jones

  12. mike brewster

    This is the first buffing machine that I’ve ever bought for polishing my boat , but I could not be happier, my boat never looked so good, now it’s time for my car, this machine works like a champ, and great price !!

    The Maxshine M8S V2 was delivered in a timely manner and works well. I was not ready to use it on my vehicle, so I tried it out on my bathroom cultured marble counter top and it was easy to use and worked flawlessly. Will know more when I actually get to use it on my vehicle.

  15. Michael M

    Was going to order the m8 off Amazon but then saw the m8 version 2 and ordered thru maxshine used a coupon code and ended up getting it for less than the m8 on Amazon. Ordered and received within a few days used it on my 94 Trans am and was perfect for get around all the curves and tight spots . Great machine.

Using a dual action polisher for paint correction and polishing offers several benefits.

How do I choose the right dual action polisher for my needs?

Assessing these factors will help you find a polisher that aligns with your specific requirements and delivers optimal results.

Can I use a dual action polisher on any type of paint?

While special training is not required, it's beneficial to familiarize yourself with the polisher's operation and practice on a test panel or less visible areas before tackling larger projects.

Can a dual action polisher remove deep scratches from my vehicle's paint?

Dual action polishers are primarily designed for light to moderate paint correction. While they can improve the appearance of shallow scratches and swirl marks, deep scratches may require more extensive repair methods, such as wet sanding.

To maximize the performance of your dual action polisher, consider using compatible accessories such as foam or microfiber pads, varying cutting and polishing compounds, pad conditioners, backing plates, and pad cleaning tools. These accessories help achieve different levels of correction, polishing, and finishing.

How often should I use a dual action polisher for car maintenance?

The frequency of using a dual action polisher for car maintenance depends on factors like the condition of the paint, desired results, and personal preference. However, it's generally recommended to perform paint correction and polishing as needed or as part of a regular detailing routine to maintain the appearance and protect the paint surface.

Can a dual action polisher be used for other applications besides car detailing?

Yes, dual action polishers have applications beyond car detailing. They can be used on various surfaces like boats, motorcycles, RVs, and even household items like countertops or furniture to remove light imperfections, restore shine, and enhance overall appearance.

What maintenance and care are required for a dual action polisher?
