In Detail

A truly universal sander from Festool, having several unique features and able to access areas other sanders just can't reach making it the perfect machine for many jobs. Able to take a range of 90mm diameter or Delta pad base which can be changed in seconds via the Festool FASTFIX system, compact in size and low in weight, it is so easy to handle and will give a perfect finish.

The two main secrets to this sander are the ROTEX action and JETSTREAM pad, ROTEX allows the machine to be either an aggressive or fine sander as well as a polisher. Just flick the switch and you can choose between a rotary / eccentric action for coarse sanding and polishing that will keep the surface temperature low or an eccentric action only for fine sanding. The JETSTREAM principle ensures the abrasive can work very efficiently and extends its life ensuring dust is drawn away from the sanding surface stopping accumulation. It in turn also reduces heat at the pad surface, another real bonus, as heat causes dust particles to clump together and block the abrasive. Polishing also benefits from a cooler pad. A range of accessories is available to suit all sanding and polishing needs.

Supplied with in a Systainer T-LOC case with 90mm Soft sanding pad, 90mm sanding disc, Delta sanding pad, Delta sanding abrasive and disc protector.

Seriously durable and controllable - Consumables too expensive.

I was sceptical about electric sanders as I had mostly used Air Powered.
I'm a metalworker so it gets used very hard. It never gives up though, even with my weight on it for hours....Very impressive after 2 years.
The Rotary feature is used all of the time for some heavy duty sanding in small places. It's excellent for achieving detail because it is so controllable, particularly with a hard backing pad - reducing radius on edges..
Consumables are way too expensive in my opinion. The backing pads and sanding discs are nothing particularly special (I have used lots of alternatives) and shouldn't cost that much money - 90mm ones can only really be bought from Festool so you are trapped there.
The 125/150mm sanders will work out cheaper for consumables because that size disc can be bought all over the place - although maybe the extraction holes wont line up perfectly. I needed 90mm because of the nature of some work, but may buy a 150mm too.
Despite the cost of the consumables, I couldn't live without this, and the added costs are more than made up by speed and durability.

Excellent Sander

The best sander I've ever used. I find for my work the 125/150 sizes are too big for me to handle - and dont do corners!
This machine is a good size for door stiles/rails and the delta pad really helps getting into tight spaces.
Using this sander is a real pleasure.

I want to keep this one quiet, but that's simply not fair to the people of Festool....!
It is quite simply one of the best tools I have ever used. I have been working with tools for almost 30 years, and this, in my opinion is one of the best ever! Ignore the first report giving it 2 stars.... It actually deserves 10.
Try it.... you will be blown away.

Not good for flat surfaces

I bought this sander because of its versatility. It is a great idea to integrate delta and polishing capabilities. The quality of the machine is very high but I am not so convinced about the ergonomics, This sander will not stand on his own on the workpiece and you have force it into horizontal so that it touches the workpiece all the time. This is incredibly difficult and tiring specially with the vacuum hose attached. It is also quite heavy for a 90mm diameter sander. I had to buy a Bosch GEX 125-1AE 125mm in order to sand flat surfaces. It is 5 times cheaper and I see no didfference in build quality and random orbit performance. This makes me think that this product is ridiculously oberpriced. A word of advice: do not buy the polishing pad since all the polishing accessories will fit in the provided semirigid pad.

RO 90 - Simply Brilliant - 5 Stars

I have had this sander for several weeks now and feel that I have put it through its paces. It is the very best sander that I have ever used and I cannot fault it at all. I am arthritic and hated using my other sanders - the RO 90 is a dream and I could use it all day long. The sanding discs last really well due to the efficiency of the vacuum extraction design.

I am slowly selling all of my woodworking machinery that can be replaced by Festool kit. I just hope that my wife does not look at the credit card bills!
