The bristle is a little more so by removing a bit it ran smootherSmile

Dustin put a lot of time and money into developing the modded driver that has since been emulated....

I think Dustin posted his conversion vids roughly 4 years ago. I think the other mods have been in production for maybe 2 years or so. 

But who knows, I could be wrong.   Huh

looking for pro's & con's of the Malish brush driver versus the stock velcro driver.

thanks for your opinions!

Now that you've been using it for awhile how do you like it?
Is there vibration issues?
Does yours look like Derek's? (Video above)

not sure if you're asking me Fred.?. i've only used it 2-3 times for my occasional resi project. no more vibration than i stated before. i like it a lot. only thing was, 1 project had a commercial grade carpet in a spare bedroom...the bristles were going thru the Glad pad and digging into the commercial carpet...machine would barely move! idk what that was about.?. i guess on carpet like that i'll have to use MF's only.

yea mine is exactly the same as the vid.

Run the red brush on rough concrete to smooth brush tips before using it on glad pads. 15-20 mins at least....yes that long

You can make either one of them work. But if you want to go faster and have better quality i think you know which one to pick.
