Dual action do less damage because of the oscillating action but subsequently take more effort to cut

Orbitals are better but you can easily do more damage.

A cheap correction job is gonna cost you 500 quid at least so you can quickly save money by investing in the gear yourself but on the flip you can totally f**k your paintwork up too so you have to take extreme care, particularly on the bodywork creases where the paint is thinner.

Also you might want to invest in a digital paint thickness guage so you know what you're working with before you start should you decide to take the plunge.

The PRO is more powerful (850w)

But if the standard is enough then go for it, although I haven't used it so can't comment.

Just bear in mind, the Pro doesnt support the smaller backing plates, whereas the standard does. Both very good machines.

Incorrect, the one I recommended comes with both 5" and 3" backing plates.

Ah sorry it was the Pro plus I was thinking of. I made that mistake when I bought it as my first machine. Moved onto Rupes a while ago now.
