I really like this unit for what it is. This feels and runs like a precision tool. The not so great reviews, had me buffer shy. Ideally you can own both styles for faster working. I'm off to spray that second coat of paint!

Festool 575039 Final Thoughts
"Ran at medium speed."
Not cheap, but much better than the pain. I wish I had bought one long before now. I use it to finish aluminum so when i'm Sanding. I am very glad it comes with 12 Pcs bonus sandpapers! I would say they have paid for themselves many times over.
