Just saw this at Powerhouse Tools. This new Flex rotary reminds me a lot of the Metabo that I've been considering but it's about 100.00 cheaper!!!

199.99+10.00 shipping.

If AG will carry this tool, I'd rather buy it from them.

Here it is.......

Note:
It's not designed to be used with 8" pads nor was the Metabo. A lot complained about it's overheating and this mainly why.

I love where the trigger and speed dial is located though.
Did I mention it's only 4lbs?

More like 5 lbs (well, 4.9). But yes, it is one of the lightest rotaries out there I am aware of. Too bad it starts at 1100 rpm.

I new SOMEONE would correct me if I had said something wrong.

Geez.

With a 5.5 inch pad.....1100 RPMs is fine with me.

You are right, what was I thinking, we do not bother sticking to facts around here. What is one pound of difference among friends when people have been making their decisions based on half of a pound difference, it is only 25%.

In that case Hitachi is 5 lbs too, so there.

PayPal refunded your money 8-9 weeks ago according to them.

Take it up with them. I thought this was over.

Guess not.

Why can't certain things be taken up in PM here? Members just can't keep their mouths shut and keep threads on topic. Everything is so personal. Everyone has their keyboards to stand behind I guess.
