    Good Article and good sander - still selling in good numbers, probably the best sander on the market at present.

    Ok, enoughs enough. We ordered the Flex Giraffe from the Speedtape hire department and its been nothing but hassle. Firstly, its as heavy as f**k, you can forget doing the full ceiling in a 1-er cos you've got to put the thing down for a rest. Secondly it keeps breaking down. Power surges from generators really f**ks them up apparently so thats no use on a site! We hired ours in November and since then we've been constantly changing either the sander or the vac. a real pain in the a**e, We now have the previous model, the flex 500, and its lighter, faster and doesnt succumb to power surges. So, I am now asking, "How can they bring out a newer model, and make it WORSE????"

    Given the choice i will always prefer the original, the giraffe is just to heavy, sanding is bad enough without the addition of a hernia.
