    Re: DA Power System

    This looks like a great alternative to buying a G110v2 if you have a corded drill at home. Problem being is imagine the consumer trying to buff out a big super duty with just the 4 inch pads.

    Maybe there is hope for the 5.5 pad size???????????

    Re: DA Power System

    Mike I know you said this can only be used with a corded drill. But I was thinking about using the finishing pad when applying wax using a cordless drill because there's no power/torque needed to remove swirls. I'm only going to spread the product around. Will this pose any problems?

    ^ i was thinking the exact same thing with a cordless drill.....pretty sure on the lowest speed setting and black finish pad, you'll be ok......and the fact it's cordless is a huge bonus!!

    ^ I am wondering the same thing. I don't have corded drill. I wonder we could use it with cordless drill for interior or waxing.

    Carpet might be too much resistance for a cordless drill... a leather/vinyl seat maybe ok.

    Re: DA Power System

    Unless you have a very potent cordless drill, you're going to be challenged to do much beyond just applying wax with this tool. But a good cordless drill, on a full charge, is a great way to apply wax without pulling out a full sized DA, or if you like applying a paste wax with a power tool. But it's surprising how quickly a cordless tool can bog down once you spread its power over the surface area of a pad. With a corded drill you can really bear down on the pad and it will keep rotating.

    Why is Meguiars competing against their own products? This tool may reduce G110v2 sales, with the exception of the interior cleaning kit.

    I don't think that the DA power system is going to eat up sales of the G110v2. IMO, they're trying to target the car enthusiast who's not willing to shell out $180 for a dual action polisher especially if they're afraid to use it. For $60, it's more bearable in an amateur's pocket.

    I can relate to this in economics where the manufacturer/seller is trying to capture everyone in the market. The example in that topic is first class vs economy class ticket pricing. You're riding in the same airplane but some people pay premium to get some VIP treatment and extra benefits. The G110v2 is like the first class ticket while the power system is the economy class ticket.
