I paint cars for a living so naturally I wetsand and buff a lot too. I heard great things about these and decided to invest in one for myself. I use it almost every day but less then an hour per day. I don't think I've had it for a year yet and it completely stopped working a few weeks ago. I believe the trigger on these and other Milwaukee tools are known to be faulty but it shouldn't happen so quickly. Idk if these units are refurbished or not but Milwaukee makes great tools and I find it hard to believe that this would have crapped out in less than a year if it was a genuine brand new tool. I most likely will purchase another because it's really nice not having to drag an extension chord around.
