A truly multi-purpose 2 in 1 sander with 150mm disc offering a choice of either random with orbital action or orbital action alone. Equally suited to coarse stock removal, fine finishing or polishing.
The slim body/motor housing forms a good grip and, with the auxiliary handle fitted, the operator remains in full control when undertaking coarse work. Similarly for fine work, single-handed control is safe and comfortable due to the machine's excellent balance and palm shaped anti-vibration top grip with finger grip recess. The dust extraction port is to the rear of the pad via an exhaust tube. The tube runs in line with the main body, thus allowing full use to be made of both sides of the machine and secondly forming a very effective hand guard. An aluminium casing houses the gearbox and special seals prevent dust ingress into the transmission.
Supplied with auxiliary handle and storage case.
|Speed||Rotary 290-620rpm, Orbital 6,200-13,300rpm|

Excellent in use but not as durable as expectedI have several thousand pounds worth of sanders and use mine for several hundred hours a year, currently I have 2x Festool RO150 Rotex's but have owned or still own 2x Bosch GEX150'S, Mafell UX150, Makita BO6040 (and 2x Makita BO6030's, 2x Metabo SXE 450 Duo's) which just about covers all the main 150mm sanders out there so I can make a very well informed judgement.

Not BadPowerfull sander, a bit triky to control but it does a good job sanding on hard wood. Dust extaction is very good, no complains there. The only thing I noticed is that it gets preaty worm fast. I am not shure if this is normal, but I used it for about 2 hours and it was fine. In the agresive mode gets worm really fast.

not so sure ...I agree it is a powerful sander , i also agree it jumps all over in rotating mode . Believe it or not it has a PLASTIC (!) gears inside , so when you use all your strength to keep it on the surface it is actually very easy to break the gear inside the head of the sander.

Great SanderVery good sander. I have used it for sanding small areas of flooring, doors, etc and depending on the disks used the speed and the finish are great. The backing pad can wear out quickley if you are not carefull tough. But overall a great piece of kit.

Riding a bull.This sander is very special , it is slower than a variable speed angle grinder or a belt sander and
