    I have been told by many a detailer that if you don't know what you're doing, you can REALLY mess your paint job up with a buffer.

    An orbital polisher is a lot safer. The same detailer said simple routine waxings(once a year or so) will keep your paint job looking good.

    A "DA" or "Random" orbital polisher is "safer". An orbital polisher is simply one that rotates in a circle and is what will remove paint quickly if you don't know how use it on auto paint finishes. "buffer" is not a term typically used to describe a machine, it is used to describe more often a cover or pad used on either an RO or orbital polisher.

    And other vehicles and toys.
