Hi all,

Tried searching a few times and came up empty - there seems to be a known issue (known by Festool as they acknowledged it on the service call) with the new ETS EC 150/5 cutting out while sanding. I've experienced it with two different sanders and seen similar reports from several others on a private woodworking facebook group. I'm wondering if there's a thread here somewhere to track this as it'd be nice to be able to check back in a month or so to see about resolution or ETA of resolution.

Festool reported their engineers are looking at it and that they'd hopefully have an update soon, but that's all I've personally heard.

Thank you and sorry if this is a duplicate post.

Once again, I seriously question Festool’s assertion that they field test new products before releasing them.

If they did, you two wouldn’t have the exact same issue.
