    Re: DA Power System

    Great points by Marc08EX. The average consumer will probably only use this on their own cars. Can you imagine polishing multiple cars with 4" pads lol? So for anyone looking to detail as a hobby/extra income will most likely invest in a G110v2. Each system has it's own market. Just like Toyota has some nice cars, but their Lexus line is on another level above it.

    Re: DA Power System

    Saw this tool in action last night. Looks like just the thing to complement a G110v2 for smaller/tighter areas. Put me on the list for one.

    It would be great it next year the power system comes with a brush for the interior to get really deep into the carpets or does this already do that? Almost all manufacturers focus on the exterior but i would like to see more power tools for the interior. Great start though dont get me wrong not complaining just wishing cant wait to try it out.

    I just realized this doesnt power itself... you need a separate power source? *disappointed*

    Well, it is meant to be an attatchment for a drill.

    As good as this tool might be, it just meets the minimum speed requirements for this tool. We recommend 1500-2500 rpm range, which is typical of corded tools. This tool shows a max speed of 1600 rpm, so with the 9:1 reduction ratio in the tool it's going to be at the bottom limit for defect removal. Still, this drill could be just the ticket for quick wax application with the tool, especially a paste wax. For spot correction it might be OK, too, but any longer term use is going to seriously push a cordless tool.

    Well, since most people already own a drill, we're able to keep costs down by not incorporating all that goes into the drill itself.

    Re: DA Power System

    I can't wait for this tool. To earlier comments I do think this will be a perfect stepping stool for those who have not tried a DA yet. I know for a fact I would have never used a DA had I not attended the Meguiars 101 class. But If I lived out of state, I could see this as a step up before the DA. Now that I have a DA I still have a ton of uses for this product. Like the Piano Finish trim on the exterior of my VW CC. The pieces between the front and rear door are hard to get at with the larger foam pads. If I had this tool that job could be done much easier.

    Mike I see the red, yellow, black pad selection similar DA.

    Right now on the DA i don;t use red. I use yellow for compound and black for polish/wax. Is the foam similar that I could use the same setup on the DA Power System (DAPS)? Or is red suggested for correction due to the different nature of the tool?

    I really want this for the carpet attachment. Can that process be explained a little further? Is it vacuum, spray on cleaner, use DAPS, wipe off? or should I use a wet vac to remove soap/contaminants after DAPS process?
    Is there any bit in the kit to take care of rubber monster mat type floor mats? A lot of the cars I work on have them and I imagine a foam attachment and soap/degreaser would fix those mats up real quick. Thanks

    While we don't usually recommend our burgundy foam cutting pad on a traditional DA because the aggressiveness of that pad, when coupled with the orbital motion of a traditional DA, has a high tendency to haze paint. This DA Power System is not an orbital movement like a G110v2, Porter Cable, etc but rather a forced rotation similar to the Flex 3401. Hazing isn't such an issue here so we use the extra cutting power of the burgundy pad to get the job done more effectively.

    The carpet attachment is a specialized foam pad that should be used much as you describe - spray on your cleaner, agitate thoroughly with the DAPS, then wipe or blot dry. Now, if you're using a cleaner that really should be rinsed with water then you should do so, and then use either a shop vac or similar to dry the carpet.

    For rubber floor mats you could easily use something like our M39 Heavy Duty Vinyl Cleaner and one of the yellow foam polishing pads normally used for paint. This is actually pretty common with a full sized DA when cleaning the vinyl seating in boats.
