Shop Tool Review
The 9237C Makita Polisher handles the toughest jobs with the power it delivers straight to the wool or foam pad. This is the tool the pros trust and you should too.
Makita’s 9237c 7-inch polisher is made for the professional. This rotary polisher has the horsepower to cut through the toughest finish with the harshest of products. When we have a vehicle with serious blemishes in the finish, this is the polisher that we reach for. Whether we are using a wool pad with compound or a foam pad with polish, the Makita polisher will deliver all the power that’s asked for.
This is not a tool meant for the DIY or weekend warrior that details cars in their driveway. With 6 speeds and 3,200 rpm, the rotary Makita polisher will send all the power to the pad. If you’re not careful, this is a polisher that will overheat the finish very quickly. In the hands of a pro, it will also work the worst finishes into a masterpiece.
Using the 7″ Makita Polisher 9237C
Through the many years in my detailing business, I have had the luxury of owning a couple Makita polishers. The last one was stolen from my business, which, reluctantly, I did not replace. Putting the Makita 9237C in my hands again reminded me of the what I’ve been missing. With this newest model, I definitely notice the variable speed trigger and the soft start. The 6-speed dial is nice, but I typically leave it on “6” and use the variable speed trigger to dial in the rpm/power that I need. The soft-start allows me to load the pad with product and not fling polish everywhere, making for much less cleanup.
