It certainly has plenty of power so no issue in that area. Top of the line tool but does not disappoint. Got this for a family member and he really likes it. I liked it so much I bought another one for myself to use at home. Cord length is good, and it came with a second filing strip.

Chicago Pneumatic CP9780 Final Thoughts
"I've only ever used the Chicago Pneumatic one."
My guess is they never bother to read reviews. These things are getting more difficult to find. I have also used it on a number of wood working projects. Otherwise it will hold up just fine for most usage. It will come with correct voltage and Chicago Pneumatic manual.
