      This is a very good sander to have in the arsenal. The ability to go from a gear driven, to random orbit, to delta makes my life so much easier when doing custom built ins on a job site.

        Comments about Rotex RO 90 DX 3-1/2 in. Multi-Mode Sander:

        This one goes with me everywhere, and it has got me out of quite a few jams due to it's power and dust collection. The rough mode can strip paint off a sticking door with no cleanup in minutes, and the fine mode is good enough for stain grade cabinet finishing. I don't use the delta pad much, but it can get into a tight corner as well as any other. Dust collection is key, no cleanup at the end of the day means you can go home sooner, it's a no brainer!

        Comments about Rotex RO 90 DX 3-1/2 in. Multi-Mode Sander:

        I have used this to strip several coats of paint or just knock down to repaint works great! Buffed out my boat like a champ! You just have to figure out the speed to use and the different settings at first then you are off tothe races! Cut my time by 80% compared to other "no-brand no power" sanders. I have small hands so it was really nice to have a tool I could hang onto and work all day.

          Comments about Rotex RO 90 DX 3-1/2 in. Multi-Mode Sander:

          This is really a great sander for smaller workpieces and detail sanding. The small circular pad easily gets into most areas and Delta pad really gets you into just about anywhere else. Has a great sanding action but finding the point of perfect balance between the surface and sanding pad can be a little frustrating. Unlike a larger sander that has much more area to deal with, the small pad can be a bit finicky until you get the hand of it, but if you need to do detail sanding - especially where an orbital motion would be advantageous - this sander is really the ticket.

Festool warrants that the specified tool will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a term of 3 years from the date of purchase.

            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.
