Customer reviewsA Fast Removal Sander...
An update to my first review. I have used this sander for two years and it has proven to be a workhorse. The well balanced sander allows for precise removal of material. Great for removal of old paint... light, fast and easy. Also good for shaping curves on wood before moving to a finer sander. The body is very durable and takes abuse well. I do recommend beefing up the cord with extra tape where it joins into the body... cord wear is clearly its Achilles Heel. Highly recommended tool for major wood removal.
