The only rest my flex gets is when I stop to take a drink or leak it back out :lol: and it is mostly 8 to 10 hour polishing stints

I treated my Shield the same and it didn't give me a days trouble.

All my Flex machines have a temperature cut out in the event you push too hard and they heat up, the Rupes on the otherhand never heat up no matter what. My Shield never took breaks on over 60 full paint corrections it was used on so yeah doubt you can get a polisher to wear out before you do.


Cool..... I just notice that when it is used for a long period.... it sounds like I can hear something crackling inside the machine :geek: :lol: :lol:

or maybe its just me :crazy:

I think you are hearing noise generated by the brushes rubbing against the comutator....often if you look through the air cooling slots you can see it in operation And sparking
