Ridgid R2611

3 stars
Price: $129; Ridgid
Test results: Sanded poplar acceptably with 60 grit, but 180 grit left swirl marks on the plywood. 110 dB.
Dust collection: poor.
My two cents: "This is a sturdily built tool that did not vibrate excessively. It would be fine for everyday sanding, but fine finishing is not its strength."
Tool stats: 6 pounds, variable speeds, 10,000 max rpm, 12-foot cord.
