Ditto. It is really big. A real pain in the a$$ if it's a small job. This woman kept begging me to do her small 130 ft kitchen. Two swipes and I was done with the big sander. Took me all of ten minutes to sand and 30 minutes to set up.adams said:What type of machines are everyone running. We use Galaxy 2000 's. They are great machines. 7.5 hp and they use the drum or the belt. I highly recommend this machine for anyone that does old and new floors. :Thumbs:

Sounds like a lot of work to me. I have used drums before, but found I like the speed of a belt sander. I've used the Orebro 10" before. That is a belt. I would sure like to try the Galaxy in a belt though. Sounds like an awesome beast of a machine.hulk said:we use galaxy omega 8 drum to ruff and a belted to slick
We just got a new brand new Galaxy 2000 that was leaving what we call chatter marks, So we sent it back and it had a bad drum. But the other machines, same kind, have done well.Donedat said:My Lagler Hummel has been leaving "ripples" in the floor. Especially soft wood. I'm thinking it's time for a tune-up but do the other brands do that? It looks pretty bad in the reflection.
