Sander ETS EC vs ETS
« on: May 20, 2015, 01:00 AM »
Hello guys,

I try to understand what is the price difference for. I am choosing a sander and not able to decide between ETS EC 150/3 and ETS 150/3. Is there a specific reason why ETS EC 150/3 is not offered in the U.S.?

The EC model is the one with the new technology brushless motor. I haven't had a chance to play with one yet but my impression is it'll be lighter and generally superior to the original ETS (and more expensive).
