Also I could make huge back and forth patterns. Works great, it made a big difference in the quality of the job! This is nothing that a bit of duct can't fix. I also bought a ALEKO handheld which I will be returning. You have to push on it to make the sandpaper touch the drywall.

ALEKO DS2252 Final Thoughts
"It was easy to set up and use."
It handles easily on walls but is a lot of work to use on ceilings. And I was right - this tool saved the day! It arrived very well packaged in an easy to open box. I was a little disappointed by the suction power; I'd hoped for more. The finish is beautiful totally professional look!
