I have used the pads on two prior jobs and did not have the same problem. Anyway I think we got the issue resolved, I tried to take a short cut to remove the factory swirls, which is use only pads. Looks like we need to cut the floor 1st with diamonds and then use pads. So far the initial test looks promising.

I don’t want to use honing powders, the job is 8500 sq.ft.

That's what they do at least the one i tray and i will suggest you use a honing powder instead

I’m using velocity pads to clean up a newly installed honed marble floor.  We are having problems with the pads leaving swirl marks. What are we doing wrong that we are getting swirl marks?
