I've had my US built Festool for 20 years. I've never felt it has been running too hot. If you need a new sander, buy this one. This sander is far superior to the Festool I had. I'm off to spray that second coat of paint!

Festool ETS 1505 Final Thoughts
"This is a great tool."
I was surprised by the size of this sander. I sanded a bowl for about 10 minutes, then shut it off. It was meh, and made my job pretty difficult. The motor is strong and gets the job done. Vibration is very low so user fatigue will not be a issue.
