    Default flex 500


    Just brought a new one, and the noise the motor makes is twice as loud as my old one.Such an high pitched squealing noise,its driving me mad.Has anyone had, or heard of,the new flexs doing this...? And whats all that with two velcro pads for the sanding discs instead of one ...?

    Any help would be appreciated.....thanks.

    bigger motor (500 w) so will be a tad louder but shouldn't be high pitched noise - did it come from us? (if not why not !? hahaha ) only kidding ! happy to arrange to have it sent to flex to check it over for you - if it s not right then it will eventually go pop on you which could set you back whilst being repaired - maybe worth having it checked before that happens.
