Question Simoniz cordless random orbit polisher

Does anyone have a Simoniz cordless random orbit polisher 4"? How do you like it?

I just bought it recently, and tried it out today. I bought it because it was cordless and the smaller had to get around smaller areas. I used a 6" buffer before, but it scratched up my car, so I was skeptical about using machines for detailing.

I don't like those synthetic application pads, so I just folded a terry cloth to apply my detailing stuff using the polisher. It worked pretty good I thought, and was definetely faster for buffing the wax off. The orbiting pattern it left looked pretty even. It was still tough to get around the sharper curves on my GC8, like lower door side panel, by the side skirts.

For $89 cnd, it seems pretty good. I'm a bit worried as to how long the motor will last if I continually use it for doing a full detail job. It comes with 2 4.8V batteries, so I'd be able to do my entire car without stopping. The thing was getting pretty hot too, so maybe I should let it cool off a bit.

I notice that these were on sale for cheap @ Canadian Tire.

Anyone with a review?
