Shurhold Debuts New RV Polisher

Fri Aug 11, 2017

150246597127025.jpgRV builders and service technicians rely on professional-grade tools that deliver a long service life. Shurhold Industries' high-powered Pro Rotary Polisher is designed to quickly bring out a mirror-like finish in the dullest surface. It's designed from the ground up for reliable, all-day use on paint, metal, glass and composites.

Unlike consumer-quality orbital polishers, the Pro Rotary Polisher features axial rotation. This motion is quick and effective in experienced hands, especially when removing scratches, oxidation and other surface defects. With 12 amps and 1,400 watts of power, it requires constant movement and balance to avoid leaving swirls and blemishes.

The Pro Rotary Polisher features a comfortable soft-start power switch with a locking on button, and a thumb-controlled variable speed dial for setting between 600–3,200 rpm. Three different right- or left-hand ergonomic gripping styles deliver full-day comfort. Maintenance is designed to be simple with EZ Clean mesh air intake vents and EZ Change carbon brush ports.

Working with the Pro Rotary Polisher is easy. Running on 120V AC, a 20-foot cord provides access to extensive jobs. Its 7-inch quick-change backing plate makes moving from buffing and polishing pads to a microfiber bonnet a snap.

Shurhold's Pro Rotary Polisher comes with a canvas storage bag, tools, replacement brushes and a one-year warranty. It costs $189.
