Solid sander, great versatility

Goes with me everywhere

tim, CPO

  • 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

Great sander that you can use all day!

Mary the tool gal, CPO
1 February 2012
  • 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! You just have to figure out the speed to use and the different settings at first then you are off tothe races! Cut my time by 80% compared to other "no-brand no power" sanders. I have small hands so it was really nice to have a tool I could hang onto and work all day.
  • Pros: Buffs, Change pads quicky, Corners easily, Many accessories, Powerful, Sands Smoothly, Smaller to hold
  • Cons: Slight learning curve

Good for detail work

Frugal Festoolie, CPO
31 August 2011
  • Excerpt: This is really a great sander for smaller workpieces and detail sanding. The small circular pad easily gets into most areas and Delta pad really gets you into just about anywhere else. Has a great sanding action but finding the point of perfect balance between the surface and sanding pad can be a little frustrating.
  • Pros: Comfortable Handles, Good Belt Tracking, Quiet, Sands Smoothly

  • Excerpt: Here’s my woodworking background which may bias your interpretation of the review: I have 20+ years of hobbyist experience.

I made a large portion of the furniture in both my houses which includes beds, cabinets, tables, chairs, entertainment centers, and dressers. I’m currently making a Hal Taylor inspired rocking chair.
