Powerful, reliable & flexible - shockingly good!Bought this 2 years ago, and have used it in heavy demand situations, and for long consecutive periods. Performs really well , with really impressive overall torque, particularly when running at slower speeds, which is really useful in situations where material removal rate needs to be slower, or on delicate finishes. Dead easy to change belts and adjust belts "running" position. Dust collection is good, and bag easy to empty. Also seems really hard wearing, with little sign of wear in working parts, and none in casing etc. Very pleased, definitely a cracking buy.
