Sick to deaf of my flex sander. It's crap. This is my second one. My first one ran like a beast and kept going for 5 years. This one which i brought in summer 09, I've had nothing but trouble with it. Has anyone tried the new flex sander or any other makes? The new flex is alot of money and a don't know anyone has used one, so to spend that much, I would have to be sure it was better than the one i've got at the moment.

I'm waiting for a review of the new flex too. A mate has the Gyproc one and reckons it's good.

That's the one. He only paid 350 for it from CCF or CPD, one of the two.

If you brought it Summer 09 take it back and get a replacement, you ain't had it a year yet.

if it's driveshaft issue it won' be covered under warranty, this is a known issue with many sanders.

Have flex used different gearing or motors on newer versions?
