Summary: Since getting this I hardly use the 9031 which I also have. I like the 9032 so much better - it has almost double the belt surface f/m so it removes material a lot faster, it's a lot lighter, and gets into so many more places that the 9031 doesn't.
Summary: Great Tool!! Purchased this as a back-up to my older 9030 Makita, which still working but only a matter of time before the armature will give out. I've used the 9030 for approx 10-12 years, replaced the cord & brushes twice. Just like a tootsie roll, keeps on trucking!!
