Power tools get hot during extended work times. Excess heat reduces the efficiency of moving mechanical parts, wears down bearings and motors, and produces inconsistent polishing results. TORQ engineers designed the 22D with an Integrated Cooling system that channels air through the machine to cool all the internal components. The moving parts like motors and gears draw fresh air in through induction vents, run it over hot components, then expel the excess heat through the exhaust vents. By using the machine’s moving parts to also move air, TORQ engineers removed the need for additional cooling fans or heat sinks, saving added weight, size, and expense.
Smooth Engagement System
Old style machine polishers have two modes: off, or very on! Once the user clicks the switch on old machines, they jerk into motion. TORQ engineers refined away this unpleasant experience with a Smooth Engagement System. This gradual delivery of power spools up the buffing head in just a couple seconds, but drastically reduces the shock and improves control over the machine. The elegant start to polishing action gives detailers the control needed to avoid messy product fling and reduces work, cleanup, and fatigue on the back end of polishing jobs.
The TORQ22D is built with durable metal, soft rubber, and industrial-grade plastic components. Obsolete machine polishers use cheap plastic body shells, screws, and fittings that hold the machine together. Some of these machines cannot survive one fall off a detailing cart or table. If that happens on a detailing job, that can surely ruin your day! The TORQ22D uses robust materials and construction to last for years of dependable detailing use. High grade injection-molded plastic components like body shell and handle don’t bend under pressure or break when dropped. Soft rubber shells cover areas close to the buffing action like forward handle and counterweight shell to reduce damage inflicted by the machine while working. Real metal screws and fittings hold the machine together without stripping apart or snapping when servicing the unit. Choose the TORQ22D dual-action polisher for durable construction and dependable action for years of detailing use.
