Favourite sanderI’ve used and abused this sander for a couple of years now, using it on plaster and heavily painted wallpaper as well as wood, for which it is of course designed. Its been run over long periods of heavy load and still looks and runs as good as new. I’ve had belt and flat sheet sanders in the past but this does the job of all of them and is good for anything other than getting into tight corners. I wouldn’t be without it.

First Class SanderI bought mine from Axminster about 18 months ago to replace an ageing Black & Decker - and it is absolutely first class! Provided you work up through the grits from coarse to fine as Festool recommend, it removes material very quickly resulting in an extremely good finish. You do need to hold it fairly firmly in use (as with all sanders). Sanding is not my favourite job, but this tool makes it easy (supplemented by my Fein Multimaster with a delta sanding pad to get into the corners, etc). Dust extraction on the Festool sander is very effective. Although expensive, I think it is well worth the money - life's too short to struggle on with cheap less effective tools!

Exceptional performanceWent to the Warrington branch today with buying this model in mind. Was taken through options from Festool and other manufacturers by Matthew and was given a hands on demo of the Rotex 150 which was a bit to big for my needs. First of all 10 out of 10 to Matthew for his help in making my choice. As to the sander, this is my third Festool power tool, same experience as my previous two purchases, price a bit eye watering but as soon as you use it you know you have made a sound investment. Top notch performance and no dust when connected to my ctl midi, very satisfied customer.

Wow!Of course you hear about the beauty of using Festool equipment, but until you have tried it then you don't realise how good they are. It only arrived this afternoon but reckon I have done twice as much in half the time with no dust at all. Powerful little tool.

Highly recommendedI used mine for the first time today and was blown away by the results. Its two sanding modes allow for both aggressive and fine work. The extraction is second to none. It is particularly well suited to sanding contoured surfaces like chair seats. I would still use a standard half sheet sander on flat surfaces.
