Why did you own the LR-32 system? It does not appear to fit your line of work.

Just got some today that I have to use tonight... We'll see how true they cut. I've got to cut some 5" diameter full round cypress.

All the other long blades I've used are trash because they're so thin.

I have always been a Makita guy but I have just bought into team green.
Planex sander and ct36 vacuum
And lucky for me I have some unfinished drywall to sand in my own basement.

They are the same blades as the super cut ones.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


Wow used my new sander today. Twice as fast without breaking a sweat. Came home and laid down on the couch without getting told to " GO SHOWER NOW".
Totally worth every rediculous dollar they charge.

So here is my plan to have the ultimate set up
There is some obvious spots that will still require some hand work and or touch ups.
So my plan is to buy the sys 5 box and leave it on the vacuum.
It will hold some spakle, couple knives, sanding sponges, sand paper, vacuum hose, and whisk end for the hose.

To do corners and hard to sand spots, try the dts400.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


Anyone have issues with popping breakers using the TS75 and vac? That's a lot of amps. I would use it mostly outdoors where GFI's are very common and could also be an issue.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


I would like to buy one, but I don't think it would serve me well if it's always popping breakers. Isn't the ct 10 amps? That together with the TS75 that's 13 amps, total 23 amps, not to mention a surge at startup.
