Featuring Cyclo's exclusive Vibration Elimination System!
The Cyclo Orbital Polisher is the only polisher with two orbiting polishing heads! The patented polishing mechanisms ensure smooth, swirl-free polishing with every use. The Cyclo 5X model shown here features Cyclo's exclusive Vibration Elimination System to nearly eliminate vibration!
The Cyclo Orbital Polisher has been polishing planes, automobiles, and RVs since 1953, when they received patents on their orbital polishing mechanisms. That same year, the company received approval from the US government to polish the military's aircraft and missiles. The Cyclo Polisher is still used today to polish the Air Force One fleet. With a resume like that, we just had to see what the Cyclo is all about. This is what we discovered:
The Cyclo Polisher is the only dual-head polisher on the market. Both heads move in an orbital motion, counter-clockwise. The idea is to simulate hand polishing but at a much faster rate. Going over a scratch or swirl with both heads ensures that you are attacking it from all sides, so to speak. No matter what angle you look at the paint, you will not see the former blemish. It's the fool-proof polisher!
This image shows the VES counterweight (1) and the VES weighted insert (2).
The Vibration Elimination System (VES™) is available exclusively on Cyclo Dual Head Orbital Polishers. This system is composed of a completely redesigned counterweight and precision matched, weighted inserts. Prior to this innovation the Cyclo Model 5 polisher imparted only about one-tenth the vibration of traditional rotary and dual action polishers. With the introduction of the new Cyclo VES, the amount of vibration is reduced even further and nearly eliminated. This drastic reduction in vibration lessens muscle and joint fatigue for the operator.
|* The counterweights are pre-installed on the Cyclo and two VES Yellow Weighted Inserts are included. These inserts are precision matched to the Cyclo Pad Holders (sold separately).
For DoublePrecision Pads and Cyclo Brushes, use the Silver Weighted Inserts, also available below. Click here to read more about VES.
The Cyclo Polisher's dual heads give you a balanced polish every time. Single-head polishers require the user to balance the polisher. The Cyclo Polisher stands on two heads so it is self-balancing. The heads rest flatly on the surface of your boat, RV, or vehicle so there is no danger of nicking the paint with the edge of a backing plate. There is no need to press the polisher flat on the paint; its own weight is enough to provide an even, flawless polish. The Cyclo Polisher is also able to cover more ground than a single-head polisher.
The two heads can perform two different functions simultaneously. Put a light cutting pad on the head you are going to lead with, and a polishing pad on the other head. This technique allows you to refine the paint as you remove imperfections. It saves time and you get fantastic results.
|Each Cyclo Dual-Head Polisher is expertly machined, manually polished, and hand-fitted to ensure longevity. Every part of the polisher is serviceable and replaceable. Some fifty-year-old Cyclo Polishers are still in use today!
The Cyclo Polisher has an accessory for every purpose. Quality pads and bonnets make the Cyclo Polisher perfect for compounding, polishing, waxing, and glazing. Pads attach to the heads by way of hook & loop pad holders or backing plates (sold separately) for quick and easy pad replacement.
The Cyclo offers perfectly balanced polishing.
The Cyclo Polisher isn't just for paint care. This versatile machine is also excellent for cleaning carpet, upholstery, and grout using the available carpet brushes. The dual motion of the heads is great for extracting stains from deep carpet or scrubbing filthy tile.
With all these benefits, we had to bring the Cyclo Polisher on board. You'll agree that two heads are better than one!
