I was not pushing hard per say, but upon occasion one would lean for lack of better term into the buffer, and the at least with the ryobi I have, the outside pad would quit turning, I believe the main part of machine would keep turning. That was probably my biggest issue with this machine. Where I was hoping a better designed machine would keep the pad moving to a degree. It has some little string to hold the pad, double knotted it, and it still came free one time, grrrrrrrrrrr

This could be one of those, I am used to hand buffing vs a machine. Sanders etc, used them alot thru the years, but buffing, is still trying to come to me as far as how to do etc. with a power machine.

I drives me dinghy!
