Who is Shurhold?

Shurhold is a company that provides all-around products for cleaning. Included here are mops, bucket systems, and car polishers. The company was launched in 1973. They have continued to expand their business, starting from a garage up to a full facility. Nowadays, they continue to expand their services to be better for different usages such as for RVs, marine gear, and cars. They follow a unique design philosophy named “One Handle Does It All” where they aim to provide multiple features available in a single product for the best value for customers. They aim to always provide the best products, even claiming their dual action polisher as the “World’s Best”. This article will thoroughly review the product to see if it lives up to its promise.

Available accessories

In case the added accessory in the product is not enough for you, Schurhold has recommended ones to be added for most convenience for users. First, they have their own “Buff Magic Compound” that aims to easily make your car easily polished and with the best shine. You can also purchase the standard Buff Magic Compound Pad and the Pro Polish Pad. These are also made with very high quality which is why we recommended purchasing these.

COMPLETE REVIEW

Dual action polishers should always be in your arsenal for regular car maintenance. The product can be used to polish any scratches, buffing pain, and sanding its surfaces. This handheld machine is made for user convenience and is made for general usage. It can be used at home and even by a car maintenance amateur as long as they properly follow the product instructions. They are easy to maneuver through the different parts of the car’s surface and are safe enough as to not damage its pain. These products come with a variety of features but are all geared towards easy and light polishing of the car. This article will be a complete review of Shurhold’s World’s Best Dual Action Polisher.

What is included with the product?

The product comes with a lot of tools to help you in keeping it pristine and for better polishing for the car. First, it has a Deluxe Canvas Storage Bag that has a lot of pockets and space for the product. It also has its own backing plate that can be quickly changed with the use of Velcro. It also comes with a pad wrench. The product comes with multiple handles depending on your comfort. It has both the standard side and the Deluxe D handle that can be good for continuous use of the product. It also has replacements for the carbon brushes. The product has a very long cord made up to 20 feet to make it easy to reach any part of the car. It uses a GFCI plug.

Advantages over the rotary wheel

We recommend dual action polishers for those who want to do regular maintenance at home and want to be sure that they will not damage the paint in the process. After all, the product has a lot of mechanisms against this such as lessening vibrations, a gentle yet effective pad, and a lot of speed options. The product works similarly to hand polishing which is why it is very hard to accidentally scratch the paint or cause swirls to appear.

Rotary wheels are those used by car maintenance professionals. Instead of going through oscillating motions, it uses only a single rotation process which speeds up polishing and enables you to remove deep scratches. The downside to this, though, is that they overheat easier and can even cause you to damage the car’s paint if you use it improperly.

 

Pricing

The Worlds Best Dual Action Polisher is a very affordable $155.98 for the unit by itself. You can save money when purchasing by purchasing their starter kit which is only $175.98 and comes with a a polish as well as a pad so you can use it right away.

Another option is to purchase a refurbished unit which is priced at $99.88. At this price point we can't suggest a better option if you are looking to polish or compound your car as the comparables in this range fall short by a long shot.

Performance

The product’s philosophy was to provide professional quality cleaning but with user-friendly design. Because of this, it is capable of high intensities of rotations per minute while having the design that prevents the car’s paint from having burns or swirls which can damage its quality. It also has a good design for both buffing and waxing the car. The product comes with 6 speed options, ranging from 2500 up to 6500 OPM. This depends upon your need, with the lowest speeds made for waxing and buffing while the highest ones for removing scratches, defects, and swirls.

The product has a lot of awards from multiple associations. This includes being awarded with Honors by the National Marine Manufacturers Association. They are awarded for being a good product for maintaining marine vehicles and are given awards for best boat care, chemicals, coatings, and more.

The product received a lot of rave reviews from customers, with most of them giving a perfect five star rating. Most of them complimented the quality of the product’s parts and its different accessories that were all sturdy and very useful for polishing the car. It also had good performance when it came to lightly waxing and removing scratches from the car. The customers also liked how light the product felt and how it was comfortable to hold for long periods of time. This can also be seen with the long cord, the rubber design of the product, and the Velcro pads.

The product was tested both on a car’s surface and on a kayak made from fiberglass. After applying the buffing compound, users will have an easy time with the product. This is because the pads are gentle yet effective in buffing the surface. Users simply need to gently place the product down and direct it. The speed levels were very flexible depending on your needs, but we found the lowest speed setting of 2500 rotations per minute applicable for almost any general cleaning or polishing. We definitely felt comfortable all throughout the process because of how easy it was to point the polisher on the surfaces and its minimal vibrations.

Product design

The product has a standard industrial design that uses a palette of black, red, and yellow. As mentioned above, it comes with multiple handles to help users feel less stress and pain on their hands after minutes of using it. To also help for this, the product comes with a vibration free counterbalance system that makes it more stable even at higher intensities. It has an 8mm orbit which should be enough to cover an adequate surface while being able to reach some edges.

The product feels solid yet light on the hands. It has ergonomic grip areas that make it easy to hold it still. Almost all of its parts are also covered in a rubber coat to make it more stable. We preferred the D-handle because of how easy it is to guide the product when using this.

Changing through the different intensities is easy because of the ambidextrous design for the power switch and the speed dial. Overall, the product has an excellent design that can easily match with any user. It is also intuitive and can be easily learned to handle.

For its affordable pricing, Schurhold is definitely a good contender for the “World’s Best Dual Action Polisher”. The product is comfortable to hold for long hours, has a lot of speed setting, has great polishing and buffing results, and comes with good features. The only negative that we could really point out was that there was no lifetime warranty. Now this is not normally expected, however some competitors do offer this. While there isn’t a lifetime warranty Shurhold stands behind their products and has a fix it option if you do encounter any issues which has been really well received by users that have used it.

Help/Support

Shurhold can be reached via their Customer Support page at: https://shurhold.com/pages/contact-us and has proven to be very responsive and informative with all questions we asked. This is one of the best interactions, if not the best, that we have encountered in the polisher space.
