The 125mm diameter disc and 3mm sanding stroke make the ETS EC 125 ideal for smaller workpieces, shapes and curves. Thanks to its compact and ergonomic design, with an overall height of only 120mm, it is a perfect one-hand sander for fatigue-free sanding, particularly overhead or vertical surfaces. Different grip positions permit perfect control of the machine on every surface. The superior finished surface is a result of the action, the sander does not leave swirl marks. Sanding can take place irrespective of the direction of the wood grain.
ETS 125 is light weight and internally balanced for smooth operation. The Vibration Control System means you don't get the constant vibration in your hands, which is the main cause of fatigue. The carefully positioned push button prevents accidental start-up and switch-off; protecting the user and the workpiece. When connected to a suction hose the ETS will only start with an activated extractor signal. The EC-TEC brushless motor ensures a long trouble free working life. The Tungsten carbide tipped sanding pad brake makes for safe, faultless work with no reworking costs.

Just brilliantThis is my first festool sander and I was expecting a lot based on the reviews and youtube videos I'd seen. The tool is really light and easy to handle, even when changing from horizontal to vertical and to overhead sanding. Some other brand sanders wrench the wrist if you try to rotate them thus; not this one. It is quite quiet when in use and the dust extraction is nothing short of extraordinary: I sanded two large kitchen work surfaces with this machine without the need for dust sheets. I also want to recommend the granat abrasive sheets which are hardwearing and long lasting, resisting clogging very effectively; three projects down and I'm still using the same set of sheets...

Stop whining and get serious...I need a good sander. Check. I need it to last. Check. I have had three Mirka (2xCeros & 1xDeros) all supplied by the outstanding Axminster guys. They were great for a while but just can't cut it on the strength of the motors. The Festool is in another bracket alltogether. It is the first Festool piece of kit I have bought and I am completely sold. I am a carpenter and traditionally use Makita for everything. Not anymore. Please people stop going on and on about the price, just get serious and buy Festool, I can't see how you would ever regret it.
