Regular price $354.90 AUD

Unit price per 

Bringing you the Meguiars Professional's Detailers Kit which combines the Grasshopper 2.0 DA Polisher together with our renown German Foam Pads (Cutting + Polishing + Finishing) and Meguiar’s M105 Mirror Glaze Ultra-Cut Compound 946ml + Meguiar’s M205 Mirror Glaze Ultra Finishing Polish 946ml.

Don’t be fooled by the Grasshopper’s diminutive size. This little polisher is a true workhorse and is absolutely made for paint correction and removing swirls.

The Grasshopper 2.0 completes our range of Dual Action Random Orbital polishers and is an absolutely essential bit of kit for any detailer.

With its 12mm orbit and 3” backing pad, the Grasshopper gets into the tight areas where the larger dual action polishers simply cannot get to. Think door jams, sills, tricky lips and lids.

Boasting a new rubberised grip, increased ventilation ports for improved heat dissipation and NSK bearings all round, the Grasshopper 2.0 was made for excellent ergonomics over prolonged use.

Combine this with a set of our German Foam 3” pads and a cutting, polishing and finishing polish to tackle any job at hand.
