Festool 150 FEQ Rotex

5 stars
Price: $495; Festool
Test results: An excellent sander, the only one that left no swirl marks with 120-grit sandpaper. 95 dB.
Dust collection: excellent.
My two cents: "My top choice because of the nearly 100 percent dust pickup, the well-designed ergonomics, and the fine/coarse mode-selector switch that lets you choose the size of the orbit pattern."
Tool stats: 5 pounds, variable speeds, 6,800 max rpm, 13-foot cord.
