    Griot's 6 users.........

    Ok, so I have had my second session with my GG6. First session was with the handle installed. I felt I could put a bit more pressure to the pad with the handle in certain situations.

    Second session was without the handle.

    I believe that I have more "feel of the machine" without the handle, and I am better equipped to control pressures on contours when needed.

    Your thoughts?

    I feel the same way. When I first got my GG6, I too tried the handle in various positions. I prefer it without the handle!

    No handle on mine. I have it and can install it anytime but never have.

    Thanks Fellas.

    I never, ever used the PC side handle. (Even in the 20 years of using it as a sander at my job).

    But I do like the GG handle design, and think I may still use it on the larger panels of my full sized truck.

    I am impressed with the power of the GG.

    I do not use it. I feel like I can control pressure better without it. It is still on the machine, however.....I hang it up by the handle

    I like the handle but usually leave it off since it can reach more places without the handle on.
