If you are a highly experienced enthusiast or professional detailer looking to purchase a cutting edge lightweight rotary machine polisher then look no further, as the FLEX PE 14-2 150 Rotary Machine Polisher is fast becoming a firm favourite of some of the very best detailers in the world. This is not surprising, as it's a beautifully designed and exceptionally well built tool that will perform faultlessly in any professional detailing environment. In addition to being durable and robust, the design is also ergonomically brilliant and extremely well balanced. Furthermore, with all of the switchgear being easy to reach, it remains comfortable to use for long periods of time, making it ideal for use on the toughest of correction jobs. Although our trusty Makita rotary is still serving us well, the minute it is no longer economically repairable we will be replacing it with a PE 14-2 150. In line with this, it comes highly recommended, particularly if you have no prior rotary persuasions or experience.
The FLEX PE 14-2 150 Rotary Machine Polisher is a CE approved 230 volt UK specification circular polisher designed to minimise user fatigue. It features a lightweight, ergonomically designed body with a curved rubber-coated head that ensures maximum user comfort. With all of the speed controls easily accessible from the steering hand and the spindle locking mechanism located behind the head to prevent accidental knocks, the PE 14-2 150 has been built to be light, agile, and fast; perfect for professional detailers who spend many hours compounding and polishing vehicles to perfection. A further benefit is that the spindle accepts M14 backing plates ranging from 50 mm to 180 mm in diameter, which allows a multitude of different sized polishing pads to be used for maximum user convenience.
As with all FLEX polishers, the PE 14-2 150 features sophisticated internal electronics to help you get the best results. These include variable speed selection via a perfectly positioned thumbwheel, consistent speed control by tachometer generator, overload protection, restart protection, and temperature monitoring. In addition, the high torque 1400 watt motor, which has a no-load speed range of 380 - 2100 RPM, also features soft start and locking functions that allow you to start polishing slowly before gradually increasing speed and lock off any given speed for continuous operation. Each FLEX PE 14-2 150 Rotary Machine Polisher comes as standard with an optional side handle and a two year return to base warranty.
Rotary polishing is a specialist paint rectification process that requires a significant amount of hands on training to properly master and should not be attempted until sufficient experience has been gained through practice on scrap panels. Furthermore, because it usually involves a relatively high degree of paint removal, it should only ever be undertaken in conjunction with a properly calibrated paint thickness gauge. For these reasons, we suggest that anyone wishing to learn how to use a rotary polisher properly seeks professional training in the first instance, as there is a limit to what can be learnt by reading online and, in our opinion, rotary polishing falls well beyond it.
