More about our Dual-Action Polishers

What is Dual-action?

These dual-action machines provide spinning and oscillating movement simultaneously–so you get the results you want safely. With dual-action polishers (also known as DA polishers or random orbital polishers) you can achieve a smooth, swirl-free finish without the risk of creating holograms or buffer trails. The dual motion helps prevent heat buildup, making them safer for the user and more effective in removing light to moderate swirl marks, scratches, and other surface imperfections.

What to look for in a Car Polisher

A proper dual-action or rotary polisher should have the following features:

  • Built-in safety features
  • Several speed adjustments 
  • Balanced weight to allow for maneuverability
  • Can accommodate varying sizes of pads for more versatility

Which products do I need to remove scratches from my car?

The answer depends on what you’re looking to do and the state of your car’s paint. But we have a method for selecting the right machine, pad, and polishing compound for what you need. Read How to Choose the Right Compound or Polish.
