Good value and gives good results
on 18 August 2011
Looking for a good cordless polisher I perused Google and kept getting referred back to the Sealey product by other online reviewers. The CP2518 performs excellently. The battery has plenty of "oomph," the weight is not so heavy that you can't push it one-handed into the middle of the roof, and the battery holds enough charge to wax on and wax off a 3-door hot hatch in one go. Using the machine cut the time it took me to polish my car by 50% and the cordless feature means you can use it without extension leads all over the place or dragging over the nice, shiny bodywork - and it's a real boon when you have no electricity supply to your garage!
The version I bought came with a Terry bonnet and a fleece bonnet included but I would urge purchasers to also buy extra bonnets at the same time. Changing the bonnets is quick and easy and they rinse through under running water without too much effort. They also dry quickly but it is obvious that they have a limited life, especially the Terry "wax on" bonnet." The machine buffs to a very deep shine - far deeper than I obtained doing it manually with a piece of cloth. However, some manual work is required around difficult areas, such as around trim and lights.
I'm very pleased with my Sealey - it does what it says on the tin.
