  • Ridgid 6" Orbital 2611 Problems

    I think there is a problem with the 2611 Orbital sander.

    Let me start by saying this is an awesome sander. It works fast and does a great job of dust collection and sanding to a finish.

    But in two separate attempts the machines has completely stopped working after hooking up my vacuum hose. They work for ten seconds, and then shut down never to work again??

    I'm thinking the electronics in the machine don't like the static charge being generated by the vacuum and then blow the speed control chip in the machine.

    Any suggestions??
