Sometimes I have to lightly tap it, and it will start right up. We have an arbor that needed to be sanded, primed and painted. Of course, integrated nicely with the dust extractor. It's more powerful and solid feeling than I'd expected. This Hi-Spec sander is very aggressive and extremely powerful.

Hi-Spec DT40261-US Final Thoughts
"This sander was very easy to use."
I draped the entry to do my front door and still had dust everywhere. I was able to get between most of the lattice. Works great on old furniture I am trying to restore! It's good quality, easy to use, and good price too. Even the ones recommended to purchase with it don't properly fit.
