The RO 150 FEQ is equipped with Multi-Jetstream dust extraction for highly efficient dust removal. The Multi-Jetstream system can extend abrasive life by up to 30 while keeping both the workpiece and the work environment free of dust. Multi-Jetstream is designed to create airflow into, across, and through the pad and abrasive. Suction is applied to the outer periphery of holes and draw air from the center of the pad which draws air from outside the pad on it s edges. This creates a circulating effect that moves more air and therefore removes more dust. Multi-Jetstream pads and abrasives use the Festool StickFix adhesive system for quick and easy abrasive changes and allow for abrasive discs to be reused. The Rotex RO 150 changes effortlessly from coarse sanding, to fine sanding, to polishing. Changing sanding pads is simple, and requires no extra tools. 720 Watts of power means the RO 150 can take on any job. Yet its 5 lb. frame, minimal vibration and superior ergonomic design make it so easy to work with. The gear box is completely enclosed and impervious to dust, making the RO 150 extremely reliable, even in the most demanding environments. Made in Germany.
Customer reviewsGreat Product
I have used a lot of orbital sanders in the past that cost somewhere around the 100.00 mark. I was reluctant to purchase this item because of the high cost but after I purchase it I ended up sanding down 3 large garage doors, a few exterior gate doors along with some other exterior wood trim. Some days I sanded up to 9 hours taking very few short breaks. All I can say is you really cannot compare this product with the other standard orbital sanders, I would guess this product is anywhere from 3 to 6 times better when comparing the time spent, noise, vibration and duct control. I would often switch between the sanding modes depending on what I was removing off the wood. If I had to come up with 1 word to describe it it would be WOW of course you have to use the correct sanding disc grit and disc material for the job and I always had my shop vac attached when operating which removed almost all the dust especially compared to my lower cost orbitals operated with the same shop vac.
