SUMMARY:

Shurhold’s Dual Action Polisher Pro is the choice for those with bigger surfaces to polish. The product is excellent because of its features dedicated for less stress on the hands when used for a long time, its features for locking the trigger and soft starting it, and its excellent polishing performance overall. The only downside to it is that it does not come with polishing pads.

When it comes to maintaining the car’s exterior, polishing it is one of the priorities. It gives it a shine close to its original one, and allows you to sand and buff it. For those who want to do it by themselves and at home, dual action polishers are for you. These are easy to use and can be used with minimal knowledge of car maintenance. Simply add a polishing compound, guide the machine through the car’s surface, and reach for all the spots you want to enhance. These are gentle to the hands and come with a lot of variations in speed for you to give it more shine, remove scratches, and more.

COMPLETE REVIEW

Shurhold is one of the most reliable brands for cleaning. The company was founded in 1973 and has since created an empire of cleaning products that are known for its high quality and innovative designs. The company continues to release popular items that can be used for cleaning cars and marine equipment. Their philosophy for their designs is “One Handle Does It All” that allows you to have multiple features in a single product. This makes it very affordable and filled with features at the same time. We thoroughly reviewed their Dual Action Polisher Pro to see its performance, quality, and more.

Shurhold’s Dual Action Polisher Pro

This is their more expensive counterpart for the basic dual-action polisher which is called the “World’s Best Dual Action Polisher”. It justifies its high price with its larger size, its larger width for polishing, and the fact that it has more features. We recommend the product to be used especially for those who own RVs and those who plan to use it for larger marine tech.

It comes in a mix of red, yellow, and black for its color palette. It has a sleek color and shine that makes it eye-catching and expensive looking. The product feels sturdy and light which makes it good for polishing the different parts of the vehicle’s surface.

There are a lot of positive reviews about the product on their website. They used it on different surfaces such as cars, vans, and boats. Most of them complimented how effective the pads were for polishing even with gentle pressure. The product feels very firm and solid on the arms even when your hand is slightly wet because of its rubber cover and its reliable handles. Finally, it gave good final results that had a good shine and completely removed any scratches on the exterior.

Pricing

The Dual Action Pro is available for $258.98 , which is a great price for a long throw and although it is a bit pricy for someone who is just doing their car at home. However, if you are looking for a piece of equipment for an RV or Boat, this is a fantastic price.

There is also an option of getting a refurbished model at $174.98 , which is a fantastic price as there are a lot of regular dual action polishers that cost more than that.

Performance

Its main difference is its larger size and wider capability for polishing the surface. Because of this, it uses a 21mm XL Orbit polishing pad that has two tiers. The first tier serves as the heat dissipating part which lessens the vibration of the unit while the outer tier is where the polishing compound is applied. This is attached to the counterbalance mechanism of the product that further reduces the vibrations made by the product. This is a very important feature as it lessens the stress of holding the product for a long time and also ensures that it will not accidentally damage the paint of whatever you are polishing.

The product has a lot more features for making it convenient and stress free for the hands. It has a 20ft power cord that allows you to reach to almost any edge of what you are polishing. With the product being fully 360 degreev capable, you can have more flexibility with polishing. The product has a very good D-handle that makes it easy to adjust the angle of polishing. You can also use the standard handle in case you are more comfortable with this. The whole product is covered with non-slip rubber that makes it feel firmer on your hands.

You are also safe to leave it at a specific speed setting because of its trigger lock. It also has a soft start trigger button that allows you to slowly adjust to the perfect pressure to apply to the product. Users can easily change the speed through the thumb dial that has variable speeds and natural motion.

The product has a quick change backing plate that allows faster polishing. The brush ports are also easy to change.

Weighing only at 5.2 pounds, the product is very easy and light to maneuver. This, along with its features for lessening vibrations and improving grip makes it feel very easy to polish your car at whatever angle you would like.

The product comes with a dedicated canvas storage bag that perfectly fits the product along with the included components.

The pads are sold separately.

Performance

The product has very excellent performance. It has the same ease of maneuvering as its smaller counterpart and is not hard to use even with its larger pad. It was also very effective in correcting any swirls and scratches with its higher intensities while gentle enough for simply improving the shine of the surface. The product’s trigger lock made us feel very secure using it. After all, accidentally pressing it too hard for too long may end up causing the paint to be damaged.

The product was consistent in terms of performance through the whole polishing process. Because of its body’s design, it was also easy to guide through the body of the RV that we tested it on.

Pros

There are a lot of positives with the product. First, even with its large size, it is surprisingly very easy to hold for long periods of time because of its design that is dedicated for lessening vibration and making it easier to grip. It also has very good polishing performance because of its good application of pressure to the pads and its good features for controlling the speed such as its soft trigger and its speed lock. In short, the product is a perfect mix of ease of using the product, quality of its polishing, and also pricing even with its larger body and components. It also does not have much of a price increase from its smaller counterpart.

Cons

The good news is that the product is very good all throughout and only has one con. This is mainly the fact that the polishing pad is purchased separately. This might add a couple more bucks to the final price.

Shurhold’s Dual Action Polisher Pro is a very excellent product overall. It has a good design that allows comfort for the user for extended periods of time of holding it because it lessens vibrations and comes with a good rubber design for better grip. It also has excellent polishing and waxing performance because of its multi-tiered pads that are easy to maneuver through the surface. It comes with multiple speed options good for simple polishing up to removing scratches. It has a good trigger lock that makes it feel safe to use. The only reason that it does lose some overall rankings is because it is a long throw it is a little less versatile than the normal throw. This is more a case of it being more of a specialized tool versus something that can handle everything. So if you have an RV or boat, we really can't suggest any other piece of equipment other than this one.
