Product Information

Details

If you need fast material removal plus smooth fine sanding, but only want to buy one tool, the Rotex is for you. It switches instantly from the Rotex rotary random orbital motion for rough sanding and polishing (sheepskin, felt and sponge accessories are available) to random orbital sanding motion for fine sanding.
Features:
  • Dual mode performance - quick and easy changeover from gear-driven, rotary mode to random orbital mode; one tool can cover three different application areas: coarse sanding to fine sanding to polishing
  • Enclosed gear unit - prevents dust from entering the gear and bearing unit; this dramatically increases the service life of the tool
  • Detachable Plug-it power cord - use the same cord for different Festool sanders; cord locks in place and detaches for easy storage and replacement; convenient 13 foot length means no hang ups
  • Near total dust extraction - minimizes dust for a safer work environment; dust removal increases abrasive life and saves on clean up
  • Tool-free FastFix pads - tool-less pad change minimizes down time when changing the pad, meaning one less tool to keep track of; each pad features StickFix abrasive mounting for fast, easy grit changes
  • Edge protector - the bumper guard allows you to sand up to adjacent surfaces without damaging the work piece or sanding pad; it also prevents the sander from jolting when sanding close to walls and edges
  • Ergonomic design - optimized grip position for every situation; ideal weight and minimal vibration for prolonged use
  • New T-Loc Systainers use one knob to open, close and connect Systainers to one another
  • T-Loc Systainers can be opened while remaining connected to one another, offering a convenient way to access contents of a Systainer in the middle of a stack
Includes:
  • Rotex RO 150 FEQ 6-in Dual-Mode Sander - 571810
  • 6-in StickFix Sanding Pad
  • Abrasive Sheet
  • Auxiliary Side Handle
  • Edge Protector
  • Removable Dust Channel
  • Plug-it Power Cord
  • T-Loc Systainer 3 Case

    Comments about Rotex RO 150 FEQ 6-in Dual-Mode Sander in T-Loc Systainer:

    I do all kinds of refinishing and sanding jobs. I used this on Corian and oak so far. Works great for corian. It sands very smooth and evenly. When used on a solid oak table to take off about 1/32 of wood, even with the 24 grit disc I found it heated up too quickly in my opinion and took forever to do what my 7 inch grinder did in seconds. Even my 4 x 24 belt sander did better. I will use it for the finish sanding though, as it seems to be perfect for that. If I had the money I would have gone for the Fein for more power, but then you loose the orbital mode. Great tool, I love it, but I will not abuse it.

        Comments about Rotex RO 150 FEQ 6-in Dual-Mode Sander in T-Loc Systainer:

        If you need a sander that does everything, this one's your ticket. Grind, Sand, or Polish, you are covered. I have run mine for less than 10 hrs but in that time I have sanded drywall joint compound, cherry butcherblock, paint grade trimwork, Corian seams, and water white lacquered surfaces just to name a few. The common thread among all of these is that all the results were stellar.

        Remove the dust collection component and the sanding pad (tool-less operation I might add) and you will see just how robustly this sander was constructed. Completely sealed yet open for direct dust extraction, This one is really a powerhouse.

          Comments about Rotex RO 150 FEQ 6-in Dual-Mode Sander in T-Loc Systainer:

          This was my first Festool and is still my most used. It takes a beating. I use it for 24 grit leveling all the way up to a fine 400 grit finish on wood. I've never had a problem with the durability and the dust collection has been wonderful. The abrasives festool sells do last a long time, purchase a bunch and the systainer that holds them if you'll be out on site or out of the shop.

              The bigger pad is great for larger surfaces. Great dust collection when used with the vac.

              Conditions of 1 + 2 warranty

              You are entitled to a free extended warranty (1 year + 2 years = 3 years) for your Festool power tool. Festool is responsible for all shipping costs during the first year of the warranty. During the second and third year of the warranty the customer is responsible for shipping the tool to Festool. Festool will pay for return shipping to the customer using UPS Ground Service. All warranty service is valid 3 years from the date of original purchase on your receipt or invoice.

No agent, representative, distributor, dealer, or employee of Festool has the authority to increase or otherwise change the obligations or limitations of this warranty. The obligations of Festool in its sole discretion under this warranty shall be limited to the repair or replacement of any Festool portable power tool that is found to be defective as packaged with the User Manual.

              Excluded from the coverage under this warranty are: normal wear and tear; damages caused by misuse, abuse, or neglect; damage caused by anything other than defects in material and workmanship.

              Some states in the U.S. do not allow the limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
