In Detail

These Festool sanders have been specifically designed with comfort as a primary consideration. They will considerably reduce fatigue when, for example, sanding overhead as thanks to the ergonomic design there are various ways of holding these tools, ensuring a comfortable grip at all times.

The ETS EC 150 has a number of important features, the first being working height of just 116mm, ensuring that access to limited work areas is unimpeded. Secondly, there’s a powerful brushless EC-TEC motor, which is contained in a sophisticated housing with a balanced centre of gravity. This makes the ETS EC 150 the ideal one-handed sander for achieving a blemish free and flawless surface.

The sander incorporates a new Vibration Control System, which actively regulates the speed of the motor if vibrations are too great. This results in a quieter, smoother operation and a greatly improved feel with noticeably fewer vibrations.

The machine also has a unique suction detection system. When activated, it ensures that the sander will only start if a suction hose is connected. This function can be disabled if required.

The carbide tipped, pad brake prevents the sanding pad from revolving too quickly when in a no-load state and it also allows the machine to be applied to a surface without producing grooves.

Available as the ETS EC 150/3 with a 3mm sanding orbit stroke for fine sanding and extra fine sanding or alternatively as the ETS 150/5 with a 5mm sanding orbit stroke for light sanding and intermediate sanding on varnish or paint.

Supplied with a FUSION-TEC sanding pad and plug-it cable in a SYSTAINER SYS 2T-LOC.

Just do it!

This is my second festool tool, the first being a domino 700xl and all I can say is that it won't be the last!
Beautifully balanced, quiet and fantastic dust extraction from my plumbed in numatic nvd extractor, I considered the 3mm version against the Mirka alternative but was persuaded by two key factors, the plug it lead and the single on/off switch on the festool vs the constant paddle trigger of the Mirka. This I felt would dictate how you'd need to hold the Mirka sander in operation, not so with the festool.
So if you're looking for a top quality easy to achieve sanded finish then here's the answer! I just wish Axminster would stock a wider variety of
sanding disc options

Worth every penny

I saw this sander at a demo by the Festool rep. As a result I have added one to my growing Festool family, I have say that it is by far the best sander I have ever used.

Best 150mm sander out there? I think so.

Have been using this now for a few months since replacing my old Bosch GEX 125-150 AVE. Main reason for swapping was the weight and overall size of the Bosch. It really was awkward to use on anything but flat horizontal surfaces and since a great deal of my work is curves and other tricky situations then it had to go. I looked around extensively and found this Festool ETS EC. Gave it a shot and haven't looked back. Handles superb, has minimal vibration, stops almost instantly, the brushless motor never bogs and the sander features probably the best dust extraction around. Talking of dust extraction I bought the Festool CTL26 to go with this and I can't imagine a better combination.

The finish produced using 150/3 model which features a 3mm orbit is super smooth if you do it right and go up through the grits. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this if your looking for what is probably the best 240v 150mm DA sander around.

Only thing I'm not so hot on is Festool consumables price. The sanding discs are, in my opinion, pricey in comparison to even top end abrasives manufacturers such as 3M and Mirka. And of course Festool have their own proprietary hole configuration on their pads to aid in better dust extraction. You can punch your own holes in other cheaper discs but its a faff and not what you want to be doing mid-job.
