Removal of spray-on Popcorn ceiling
Purchased this sander to remove the dated ugly popcorn (AKA spackle, spray-on, acoustic, textured etc.)ceiling in my home. The sander worked great and I was able to remove about 100 sqft per half-hour - had 3300 sqft to remove in total so the traditional method of wetting the surface and scraping was not an option. I recommend using an 80 grit sand paper for the initial removal and follow-up with a 100 grit to finish the surface for painting. I will admit, after doing about 400 sqft my shoulder were starting to hurt so I spaced the project over a couple of days.I also recommend the investment in a long vacuum hose (35 to 40 feet) such as the optional orange plastic type that can be purchased for your central vacuum and is designed for garage use. In my case I used the longer hose and placed the vacuum outside the house. Generally speaking, my shop vacuum needed to have the filter cleaned after completing approximately 100 sqft. I would also suggest using a cheeze cloth bag to serve as a pre-filter to reduce the amount of dust collected on the main filter. Using an ultra-fine vacuum filter will only plug-up too quickly, so it is better to use a regular dust collection filter. [...]

My new favorite tool
For drywall finishing and for faux paint removal (glazed surfaces) this tool makes the job go 100X faster.As far as taking off to much material, Makes sure you use the right grit of paper, Keep in mind that I found it best to move up to the next finer grit and this also reduces time required to complete task. The suggestion of keeping shop vac out side is a great idea. keeps your clean up to a minimum. Also if you can't find cheese cloth a loose woven cloth also works well, just be prepared to clean the vac out more often as it removes a good amount of material.

Great solution
Buy the tool! Don't hesitate anymore! Yes it's a bit expensive, but much less expensive than some of the other name brands I've seen. There really isn't another way to do wall board work. Like everyone else, I've been struggling with hand sanding for a long time, and it's a mess, doesn't come out that well and the dust goes everywhere and all over me! This tool on the other hand sands nice and smooth very quickly.
It does get a bit heavy, but It's hardly worth mentioning - it's a Porter Cable and the quality is outstanding.

I would buy this product again.
This product really speeds up the wallboard (drywall) sanding process and pad changes are very easy. Vacuum connectiion works fine.

A good investment
I can sand a room ready to prime in about 1/3 the time doing by hand and with 90% less dust. It's a little heavy and overhead sanding tires one out but then so does manual sanding. I have no regrets about spending the sizable money for it. It pays for itself quickly.

Drywall Sander
This sander was a little too aggresive and would take off too much compound causing seems to crack. Perhaps with some practice it would be easier to use, but I found a better cheaper system using a 1/4 sheet sander and a shop vac.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
