If you are new to polishing I'd recommend using a porter cable 7424XP or my personal favorite is the rupes bigfoot 15. I would stay away from the cyclo pro 5.

Thanks,

any reason for the rupes 15 over the 21

I'd say cause the 21mm throw vs a 15mm throw. The 15 imo is a more useably tool unless you do a lot of big surface vechicles.

^^^ This. How often do you plan on using it as well? You may be better to go with the Porter Cable if you wont use it often.

Have a SUV and pick up. Just my own vehicles. I just want to buy the best one for my use. It's a one time purchase that I will have for ever.

I like the 15mm throw vs the 21mm because it's more versatile. 21mm is great if your doing a lot of big vehicles or huge panels. But honestly I think 15 is perfect.

If that is the case, then you cant go wrong with the Rupes 15mm unit. I have a small 3" DA as well for smaller hard to reach areas and for wax/sealant spreading.

This^^^^^^^^^^^ I'm going to to say the same, but the 21 is very temping for a tad bit more.

I agree with both John and felixthecat ^^ 15mm throw is more than enough to do the job.
