Answer:
Yes it comes with one pad but I would suggest that you buy another if you are using multiple products (ie rubbing compound and polish). These pads are pretty tough though and can be easily washed and reused.

Answer:
Honestly, I wouldn't use it with anything other than the max speed recommended (which is still half the speed of my 12v corded DA polisher that goes up to 6400rpm's). I tried this product with a drill similar to yours, and while it does work, it just takes a LOT more time and effort to get results.

It does work on light scuffs and swirls, but anything more takes an incredible amount more effort than it should. see less Honestly, I wouldn't use it with anything other than the max speed recommended (which is still half the speed of my 12v corded DA polisher that goes up to 6400rpm's).

Answer:
I would recommend using it with a drill that develops at least 1200 rpm. I have mine connected to a corded Makita power drill that gets up to >1500 rpm - IIRC. The drill is a bit heavy, so I decided to try the DA head on my recently acquired Porter Cable battery powered driver - but it did not develop enough RPM to get… see more I would recommend using it with a drill that develops at least 1200 rpm. I have mine connected to a corded Makita power drill that gets up to >1500 rpm - IIRC. The drill is a bit heavy, so I decided to try the DA head on my recently acquired Porter Cable battery powered driver - but it did not develop enough RPM to get the DA head turning fast enough. The DA head has a gearing mechanism inside it that reduces the input RPM, so if the drill isn't putting out enough, the DA head will not work well at all.
That said - I highly recommend the DA head system for polishing / waxing your car. It makes the work really easy, with VERY good results. A few days ago and polished my Infiniti G20 in about 2 hours. Go ahead and also get the different pads - compound, polish and wax, together with the corresponding Meguiar's liquid polish. You would have great results! Hope that helps. see less

Answer:
You could use this with that compound, but I recommend you switching the foam out to either the cutting disc or the brown pads which were designed for cutting/compounding/ polishing. The yellow foam I believe is for waxing. It'll still work, but you will have to go over the spot you're polishing more times.

Answer:
It all depends on what your trying to accomplish! I would purchase an 1500rpm or 3500rpm corded drill. Compounding, and Polishing requires higher RPM to get defects out of paint! Waxing requires at least 800rpm.

Answer:
Yes it works exactly like an orbital buffer/sander/polisher. I love mine and I have not had any problems with it. I use it on my motor cycles and it's the perfect size. I would consider a different option if it was a larger vehicle (SUV, Truck). It's important to keep in mind the drill RPM requirements... not less than… see more Yes it works exactly like an orbital buffer/sander/polisher. I love mine and I have not had any problems with it. I use it on my motor cycles and it's the perfect size. I would consider a different option if it was a larger vehicle (SUV, Truck). It's important to keep in mind the drill RPM requirements... not less than 1200 and not greater than 3500. Most cordless drills do not fall in that range, so you will want a corded drill. The other thing to remember is that its speed that polishes, not pressure. Do not expect great results if you are pressing down hard with it. see less Yes it works exactly like an orbital buffer/sander/polisher. I love mine and I have not had any problems with it.

Answer:
I don't have one in front of me. I'm not in the office, but I think it is... most of the meguires sundries do come from China.

Answer:
A corded Drill delivers higher RPM for best results - Many cordless drills offer a lower RPM and battery life is reduced long before a true polish/wax is completed. I have both but always use the corded drill with this kit
