    No, not at all. Since it's a dual action polisher if you put it up on edge you can still stop rotation, just as you can with any other DA on the market.

    I hate comparing our products to the competition, but I can tell you from first hand experience running the GG6 side by side with this tool that you'll never want to use the GG6 again once you get your hands on the MT300. It is so much quieter, so much smoother, so much easier to control and it still cuts like crazy.

What will be the expecting price for this package? However, despite I like the new look I would like to ask you this, after you alreday used it, what the main difference or advantages of the new DA compared to the Meg G110V2? both of them are 8mm throw - I know you provided some information above. Is any kind of forced rotation embedded in the new DA + the torque management. BTW, could you please post the video at SEMA that demonstrates the new DA in action? Just I would like to understand in more detail how this Tool being designed and what make it more steps above the G110V2 - Excellent Job Meguiars - Thanks
    The MT300 is sold alone - no pads or backing plates. Compared to the G110v2 the MT300 is better balanced, more powerful (in terms of amps, which matters, and not watts, which doesn't), has a superior power management (ie Digital Torque Management versus Cruise Control) and is overall smoother in operation. Don't let the fact that both are 8mm stroke tools. The G110v2, GG6 and the PC7424XP are all 8mm stroke tools but the PC is much, much easier to bog down under pressure than those other two.

    Shorter stroke, which makes if far superior when doing edge work, but still gobs of torque to keep the pad spinning even under heavy pressure.

    You are exactly the target market we had in mind with this tool. There is a very large gap, both in terms of price AND performance, between the existing crop of 8mm stroke tools and the "big guns" on the high end. It's a tough call for a lot of people to step up from a tool in the $150 range (all the existing 8mm tools) when the only options are in the $400 range - that's a big jump in cost. We wanted to fill that big void but keep pricing closer to the low end while providing power that leans toward the high end.

    Re: MT300 Dual Action Polisher

    I know this machine's not even out yet, but 1 other question. Is there any possibility for HD model with a 25 foot heavier gauge cord in the works for down the road? I'm guessing this will have the standard fairly short regular gauge power cord. Either way even without reading any reviews, I'm about 99% sold on this being my 1st DA.

    Re: MT300 Dual Action Polisher

    I had a great experience using the MT300 Daul Action Polisher at SEMA this year, Meguiars was generous enough to let my team (The Ford Vehicle Car Care Team consisting of Kevin Brown, Jose Fernandez, Eric Muehlhaus, Ryan Sunok, and myself) and I use it to prep over 50 cars in the Ford booth this year. It's a well balanced machine that feels good in your hands, very smooth with lots of torque and pad rotation. The DTM works great when you need that extra power to muscle through more difficult paint defects. When using the MT300 with the new low profile foam discs there wasn't anything we could not handle.

    That's quite the powerhouse team you assembled Derek! I bet the Fords never looked so good!

    Well, if Derek likes it that much, that's a pretty solid endorsement!

    Definitely a nice balanced machine. Feels smooth and if anyone is familiar with the Griots Garage DA Polisher I don't believe it is louder than that so overall it's a great machine. I'll be making space in my tool box of polishers for this machine for sure. Great job Meguiar's!!!

    Thanks for that, Jesse!

    As for noise, especially compared to that other tool, ours is a LOT quieter (according to SPL testing we've done in the garage) and vibrates a whole lot less.

    Re: MT300 Dual Action Polisher

    Mr. Stoops,

    How long is the cord?

    Did the MSRP change? I swear the first time I read this thread it stated $199- $249 depending on retailer?

    Brushes (and other replacement parts) to be stocked by your guys?

    Many thanks!
    -Gabe

    Re: MT300 Dual Action Polisher

    Mr. Stoops, will the polisher come with a duffel bag/carry case like the G110V2 does?
