A strong tool requiring a big compressor...

"Owned this polisher for two years. Used to polish vehicles and other painted surfaces. This unit requires a lot of air, so be forewarned that a small single stage air compressor is going to have trouble keeping up.
The exhaust is located in the side handle. This is good and bad. The oil from the tool and any moisture will be expelled there, allowing the sludge to get on you or on the piece you are working on.
Performance is good for a pneumatic tool. I would recommend it to someone with a large compressor but for those that don't, go electric."
