Best On Site Solid Surface Sander I've Used
I've used this sander for years on solid surface finishing and it does a great job , very little dust great biter and polisher , the only thing to be careful for are power chords , very expensive to replace . great work horse no overheating very well sealed for water finish , though you don't have to with this.
One sander for every job!!
Yes it is expensive, yes the consumables are expensive....but so is my time.
I am not a tradesperson, just a DIY guy so deciding to spend so much money on one tool wasn't something I took lightly. But it was money well spent!
I own and run a cafe and have 5 large, long timber table tops that I have to resurface every year. The first year I purchased a well known brand of sander and discs (not cheap but obviously cheaper than the Festool).
Don't get me wrong it worked as it should have, but it took me over 5 hours to remove the polyure...thane coats from the tables, I used over 50 sanding discs and must of had a few kilos of poly dust all over the floor. The following year a friend of mine had mentioned that I should try the Festool. When I saw the price I obviously thought, NO WAY!! But after doing some research and reading reviews I decided to take the plunge into the Festool world. Am boy am I glad I did!!
Seriously, the best professional tool you can get.
I have been using the Festool RO 150 for several years now, and have found it to be completely reliable and flexible. The two settings for a harder cut, or for a normal orbital cut mean that any sanding task is quickly dealt with. Changing between modes is a simple switch, speed variation is with a roller. Changing sand paper is switching over a velcro sheet, can't get easier than that. If you will be using an orbital sander on a regular basis, this is the one to get. Seriously.
A bit expensive for the handy man, but a good investment for the tradesman
