Looks decent, noticed there is a 10% off Bauer coupon on HF website right now. So it would be $63.
HF has been adding new tool lines for the last few years, about 6 months ago I bought an Admiral 12” sliding miter saw that was much better then I excepted for $170

I tried it, ok, but pretty sure it was under par compared to ridgid, bosch and my porter cables, didn’s seem to have the ump, the other three whipped its keyster in sanding.
i did return and went and bought another bosch, now there is a orbital sander. i do have a few HF tools that work fine, this one just did not work out for us here.

best of luck

I have a old orange unit I got from them 20 years ago. It finally is on it last leg. Buying the Bauer version tomorrow, with coupon.
