New(?) Festool floor sander: RG 130 ECI
« on: November 17, 2022, 08:59 AM »
I haven't seen this before and I think it's new. Maybe I just didn't know about it. The Festool RG 130 ECI is a "Sanierungsschleifer" mostly for flooring. The applications seem much broader than wood flooring though. Removing adhesive or all kind of finishes from old flooring.

Looks like a new improved version of the Bosch I used to use on concrete floors to knock down humps before installing laminate flooring. Be interesting to see what type of paper or discs festool supplies for this machine.

Diamond grinding cups, for the most part.

Interestingly enough, there were several of these offered on Festool Recon about 6-9 months ago. If I remember correctly the price was around $550 or so...pretty reasonable, I was tempted. I just don't do that much concrete work any longer.
