been using this Bosch GEX 125 sander for a year and have been happy with it, since everybody is raving about Festool i decided to buy their 125mm version, the RO 125.
i put both to the test in my daily type of work, and it turns out the Bosch IN MY CASE is more productive.
all that matters to me is doing rapid and comfortable work.

usully with these kind of tool tests or comparisons you will see someone showing you how fast their Rotex can sand smooth a piece of rough milled hardwood (planer anyone?) or testing it for speed against a 20 year old cheap orbital sander.

i hope this test where 2 professional brands are competing will help you make the best decision.

thank you for watching!
