I own many rigid tools and I go through sanders about every two years. I have always bought rigid sanders, I just like rigid for woodworking. I just bought a new rigid sander the 5" Random Orbit Sander R2601. The smooth and quiet operation is nice but "WHAT WERE YOU THINKING WHEN YOU CHANGED THE DUST COLLECTION? No, I do not want to hook up the rigid shop vac to the sander because it would be running all day long and I would have to fight the hose also. This new dust bag has got to be the worst thing since soup sandwiches. It just blows dust through the snap lock like it wasn’t even there! If you have any of the previous models with the screw on dust bag please send me a couple. I bought the sander yesterday and today I am looking for a new sander, but it looks like most other brands are using the same snap lock .
No announcement yet.
