A smooth rideMy bosch gex 150 died after 11 years of heavy sanding and I was reluctant not to replace like for like. The last few tools that I'd bought have all been festool and I've been really impressed with their performance, build quality and design so I thought I'd spend the extra and get the rotex 150.

Amazing Performance, Great valueI always enjoy using Festool products for the first time. Even with very high expectations I had, the Rotex 150 certainly didn't fail to please. The performance is flawless, dust extraction superb, and the finish achievable excellent. Some reviewers comment on the cost of the unit -personally I find Festool products to be both great performance and value. The quality of the r & d that go into the products is really noticeable compared to other manufacturers; they just do what the they set out to do with superb efficiency. Even using the sander as a keen DIYer like myself, I know it will provide an excellent service for years to come.

Dust free sandingHaving filled the house with dust once too often during prep for decorating a dust free sanding option was explored. Pleased to say that the Rotex has met with approval from SHMBO. Abrasives seem to last a long time too. Additional information can be found online that explains the bewildering range of abrasives available, which only adds to the versatility of this sander. As usual with Festool, well made and quiet. Old orbital and belt sanders now in the "reserve" collection.

great sanderBought a Rotex 150 a few weeks back and it knocks spots off my old Metabo 450. Used it with the bumper attachment to sand some purlins up against a freshly painted ceiling. It removed paint drips and left the purlins looking clean as a whistle with no marks on the ceiling and no dust in sight.

3yr Warrenty optionGreat sander no question. As a boatbuilder I used mine a lot for the last two years. I fogot all about applying for the 3yr warrenty online...BIG MISTAKE! Two years later and it has just gone up in a cloud of smoke....very expensive. Don't think there is a better sander out there though???
