    I greased mine once, maybe 6 years ago. It was getting hot to the point of struggling to turn and had to keep stopping to let it cool down.
    Problem was it was a massive house with high ceilings. Went back to keeping the head flat instead of bending it vertically and no issues since.

    Don't bend the head when you're using if, especially for long periods of time.

    I have been using a q tech sander for 2 years now with absolutely no problems ( touch wood) wouldn't go back to flex now. Have a friend that uses the menzer sander and he rates it highly, bit heavy but powerful. Seems a decent bit of kit.
