Can you video tape the testing so we can see what is going on and how the testing is need done?
Our testing will be done both commercial and residential, seeing we have the service side of our business we have the opportunities to test in our training facility but to also test on our commercial maintenance properties and test when we are doing residential jobs. Our testing is not restricted to the our training facility.

Hello Pro Partners
I think I John is too busy, they should send out the puck for the testing to any member for 1Day and let us send them the feed back?
Information would have to be in formation that all of us can see how the testing was done.
I think any new item needs to be field tested and proven by all of us that want to test new items.
I would like feedback from any SCCpartners.
Thank you for sharing your experience! John, I understand that you have been extremely busy however, is their any updates on the Cheetah Pucks. Thanks.

I have to chime in on all the conversations about monkey pads and cheetah pucks
and all the MARKETING HYPE about this stuff. back in january or december i fianally
decided to try some of DANA,S monkey pads and cheetah pads/pucks on a project
i had coming up so i spent about 600 buck purchasing the full set of eight inch monkey
pads 200,400,800,1500,3000,8000,11000 and also the full set of 8 inch cheetah pads
they are more like an 8 inch puck to me.
the 200 grit monkey pad in a shower were a dismal disappointment they did not have any value in that experience so back
on the shelf in the trailer it went.
same shower 8 inch cheetah puck this did resurface the wall and i went thru the whole set to see the results and it was just ok.
but when i used a regular 200,400,800.1800 grit 8 inch turbo diamond pad from stone care central that cost me only 25 bucks each
i got a faster result and a better looking finish on the same travertine shower
i have had some jobs where the monkey and or twister pads have been ok to use and got the desired results always a honed only or a high hone only finish they are in my opinion only good for that type of finish because they lack the CLARITY and REFLECTION that true professionals require of polish stone work.. why anyone thinks the cheetah pads a the second coming of easy better faster is certainly not what i experience in any of my testing results and i don't appreciate DANA coming on to HYPE product that is no better than what we have all used in the past. has anyone noticed the new pucks look more and more like resins mounted to a 3 m pad. i velcro 3 inch
diamonds to hogs hair pads all the time and it works great to ride over lippage too. why spend more money for a poorer quality outcome
since they are on generation 22 or 24 i must have generation 12 since i bought them 7 or 8 months ago. so DANA i challenge you to
replace these pads with your new stuff and i will honestly test them and report unbiased results back to the pros.
