It held up and kept up with the AirVANTAGE TOOLS. At the top end, it has a rich, powerful voice. My 40ft boat was finished in 2 half days. One last thing, the dust collector are very easy to clean. Vibration is average for a sander in this class.

AirVANTAGE TOOLS 060302 Final Thoughts
"Just as described."
You will need Teflon tape to complete assembly. I may just not be emptying it soon enough. The rpm range runs from 5,000-10,000 rpm. I will use this sander until it stop working. I still wear a dust mask, but that is just common sense.
