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.

Excellent SanderThe 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!

Not good for flat surfacesI 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 StarsI 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.
