Excerpt: This one goes with me everywhere, and it has got me out of quite a few jams due to it's power and dust collection. The rough mode can strip paint off a sticking door with no cleanup in minutes, and the fine mode is good enough for stain grade cabinet finishing. I don't use the delta pad much, but it can get into a tight corner as well as any other. Dust collection is key, no cleanup at the end of the day means you can go home sooner, it's a no brainer!
Pros: Comfortable Handles, Good Balance, Powerful, Quiet, Sands Smoothly
Excerpt: I have used this to strip several coats of paint or just knock down to repaint works great! Buffed out my boat like a champ!

Pros: Comfortable Handles, Good Belt Tracking, Quiet, Sands Smoothly
