Worked great,did all of basement with 2sheets of paper,hooked up 5 horse vac with hepa filter,the only dust was when I stopped and took away from wall
Sander worked great to remove some texture from a large area where I was patching a ceiling. It is a little heavy to hold up, but much easier than hand sanding.
As a professional Handyman, this tool impressed me. I was a bit skeptical when ordering, but was very impressed on first use. I bought sanding screens to use instead of the sanding discs that came with the unit (only as a matter of personal preference). At first it feels a little cumbersome, but ...
Our walls were horrible! Aweful texture with uneven bumps, splotches and covered by dark glossy paint. This grinder creates very little dust because of the brush around the sander edge. We still wore a mask and eye protection. We did the whole house in a few days- two seniors. Even Mrs. Senior was able to do several walls. It’s about 10 lbs. plus tubing to vacuum but doesn’t require pressure. It was easy to control and move over the walls. So glad we did it. What a difference! I lightly mudded with very thin drywall compound using a magic trowel and we will paint it soon.
