Griot’s Garage G9 Random Orbital Polisher

The G9’s comfort is second to none. You can feel its lightness and balance the first time you pick it up. Griot’s Garage designed the G9 with perfectly placed grips, high-quality double-shot rubber touch points, and easy to engage controls that are convenient for right- and left-handed users. They’ve upped the power ante to 1,000 watts, a 17% increase over their previous 6” Random Orbital. Just like on the street, performance is all about putting the power down. So Griot’s Garage made the G9’s drivetrain 45% stronger than their Gen3 machine and added a state-of-the-art Constant Speed Controller. The controller maintains the set speed even when additional pressure is applied to the tool, ensuring the G9 makes the most of every 9mm pad rotation. Representing the fourth generation of improvements to the Griot’s Garage line of Random Orbitals, the innovative, feature-rich G9 is the new benchmark of random orbital design.
