I primarily use Bosch 6 " or ro90. Between the 2 of them there's not a hole lot you can't do.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


If you're using a dust extractor, turn it down to 20-25% or so. The swirl marks will most likely go away and the dust pick up will be the same or better.

I have to ask----what are you planning on using the sander for?

The only 2 Festool sanders I do not own are the RO 150 and ETS 150. Simply because I do not need to stock another thousand dollars worth of sandpaper.

It's a good sander. Biggest issue is even with the extractor set all the way down they tend to stick to the work surface. Having a protection pad on it not matter the abrasive helps limit the issue.

Re: Festool Fan Club Thread


We bought a DTS 400 about a year and a half ago for a specific use (about 6 hours of sanding). We haven't used it since. We use the RO-90 once a year.

We use the chit out of our ETS 125's and RO 125.

The LS 130 is another one I would consider since it comes with the 90 sanding pad.
It would be used mostly for getting in tight spots where the drywall sander cant get too. I want a sander with the best extraction and festool is it.

DTS 400 with an inferface pad, otherwise it will be to aggressive when hooked to a CT.
