    Same as Tony, you pay for what you get. porter cable and Flex is what we use with no problems.

    Ive used porter cable for 4 years know no problems just wear and tear ( I have just broken the hoover but that was my fault) there are some lovely sanders out there at the moment but you do get what you pay for.

    The Makita hoovers are good, i have one as a spare, never use bags just the filter that comes with it.Had it for about 5 years with no problems.

    for users of drywall sanders look up the loveless ash drywall hoover is light weight its made to lift tiny particles you can use with or without bags and has power to spare the only prob is trying to get sander of the wall suction so powerfull

    i would say the miro 955 is the best currently on the market. they have rebranded the alto vac, which is also used by festool. We have sold around 40 of them in the past 3 months and had minimal problems with them. the support is spot on and we have some floater machines in case there are problems. So far not one broken drive shaft after 8 months. the sanding discs are very good and inexpensive, they are also set up to draw all the dust through the head, so they eliminate up to 9 times the dust of other brands.

    ive pretty much killed off my old bosch gas 50 hoover now and have just received its replacement, a nice shiny festool, looks great, it'll be a bit of ashame to dirty it up on site though! I'll be trying it out in the week! walls and ceilings have got a deal on them at the moment!!!

    hi,

    I have had a flex a porter and a gyproc sander and a fox and now have a festool. the festool is a lot of money but it is in a different league to the others.

    German efficiency

    bloody Germans

    porter and flex ok but the fox was absolute crap and the gyproc one is apparently made by fox and was crap too

    i have a makita hoover a fox and a alto. the fox hoover for the money is good enough and the makita also no problem but if i have to buy a replacement i will get alto just move better and have a bit more suction.
