Bluepoint machine polisher

every 2 weeks a snap-on van comes to my work and i have persuaded my boss that it would be a good idea to get some stuff from him because we break a lot of things... i have ask the snap-on guy to do me a deal... charge me full price for the items my work needs and give me a cracking deal on something i need & hes more than happy to do that!

i want a machine polisher and the only one i seen in the snap on catalog was a bluepoint one... anyone got or used one? are they any good? or is it worth just getting a different brand and just getting something else from him?

i have a bluepoint mop, quite frankly its a very good peice of kit, a tad heavy but some people prefer that, iv had it for 10+ years now and its never missed a beat, there may be better on the market now,but ill stick with what i trust
