help to choose between this two orbital polisher

I want a good orbital polisher but I don't know which of this two one are the best.

porter cable: Porter cable 7424xp, 7424xp, Porter Cable 7424XP Dual Action Polisher, Porter Cable polisher, car polisher, buffer, sander-polisher

or

griot's: Griot's Garage 6 inch Random Orbital Polisher, Dual action buffer, DA polisher

If you have experience with one of it, let me know.

I have both of them. The Griots is really a very strong machine while PC is just right. Over all I use my PC most of the time while the Griots is just collecting dust.

I've never tried the GG, but I had a PC7424. I thought it was a good polisher, but I didn't like how the pad always stopped spinning. I hear the newer XP version is a little stronger and that it isn't as much of an issue. I ended up upgrading from the 7424 to a Flex XC3401.

the porter has great reviews and a few detailing sites recommend it specifically. I use a husky DA 6" air powered sander with a small buffing pad, it works fantastic.

I have the GG one. It's amazing. You can't really go wrong with either. Just make sure you learn how to use it. Drive Clean is a good channel to watch on YouTube. Larry from Ammo NYC details all kinda of expensive cars that have sometimes interesting paint problems. His videos really helped me.
