Superior Machine! I purchased this ROS after reading several reviews on a woodworking forum. Yes, it’s expensive, but after using it, I can say it’s worth every penny I spent. I own a Festool dust collector, and coupled with the ETS 150, dust is almost non-existent. Even after sanding for several hours, the 50 grit Festool pad I was using was practically as clean as new. I purchased the ETS 150/5, which has a 5mm orbit vs. the 3mm orbit on the 150/3 because I wanted a more aggressive sander. One amazing thing…

High Quality…No Dust Connected to my Fein vacuum and with the Festool sanding pads (actually from Klingspor Woodworking Shop […] this sander captures 100% of the dust. I replaced my Porter Cable belt sander which I had for 15 years because Porter Cable unbelievably discontinued making replacement brushes. While a bit costly, I wish Festool had more products that I need for my woodworking shop. I already have the Festool Domino which is an awesome product from Germany.

Definitely worth the price. I was skeptical of the value of this machine when I saw a demo, but after spending way too much time running a 1/4-sheet palm sander I decided to give it a try. My only regret was waiting as long as I did. It’s amazingly comfortable to use and makes short work of any project.I didn’t spring for the Festool extractor. My fit it perfectly for use with a domestic shop…
