I would like to purchase a Cyclo polisher for my own use–to maintain our own, and other family members' cars. I'm also considering to enter the business of detailing, possibly as a supplemental income at this point. I've got a lot to learn, and I'm not one to go into this sort of thing without being very well prepared, but that's another issue. I currently use a couple of Optimum products with beautiful results, the No-Rinse wash, and the spray wax.
I'm interested in feedback regarding the Cyclo. I'll say that I'm leaning towards this polisher heavily because of a local detailer that has done work on 3 cars for my wife and me, and couple of friends over the last couple of years–with what I would say are very excellent results. He's very well considered around here and has more than 15 years of experience, and has done many very high end cars, has a huge portfolio to show it, and he's got regular repeat business with some obviously wealthy customers. The Cyclo is his primary tool for everything. But on the other hand, what I see on the internet forums is sort of an absence of praise, or lack of much opinion about the tool, rather the Porter Cable seems to be the standard, and the Cyclo seems to me to be sort of ignored. I'm just kinda wondering why this is, and what you users of the Cyclo here would say about it, as I have only the one personal reference to it, albeit a very positive one.
Sorry for the length of the post, just want to have you know where I'm coming from.
