I haven't used an angle grinder but I imagine it isn't much different than a rotary sander. Dewalt makes a 5" one that works great for decks. Much faster than an orbital. Even my little RO 90 in rotary mode outperforms a 5" orbital by a long shot. You do have to be a bit careful and avoid overheating the wood and closing the grain.

Havent used an angle grinder but we have used the RAS 115 (which is essentially the same) with 50 or 36 grit on decks to strip and follow it with the Ro150. The 150 will level anything the RAS takes out of plane. They make short work of it.

Interesting. I suppose I could give it a try someday, although at this point I try and avoid decks like the plague. I think I'm at around 5 years (?) since I've done one.

Here's a little tip if you've got the Dewalt orbitals. Unscrew and pull the pad off, you'll find a white plastic disc underneath. It's a restrictor plate. If you remove it, you'll turn your orbital into a super orbital. Just be careful on startup as it tries to torque out of your hand. You also have to be careful when you first hit the surface you're sanding as it can take a wedge out quick.

I really like my RO 125 on decks. Typically I'll strip a transparent stain deck by applying a deck cleaner, then power washing to get all the previous finish off. Everything then gets sanded to remove the raised grain.

Sure you do....lol. And one day you'll wake up and still feel like you're 25, and your knees and body will feel like they're 80.

You got the right idea...just stay away from decks. Unless it's slim pickings.

Had to smile when I saw you using your Festool outside where dust typically isn't an issue. Thought I too would only be using mine in situations where keeping the area as clean as possible would be preferable. Turns out that it's such a darned good sander that I use it anywhere sanding is required. Can't remember the last time I had my Milwaukee sander out.

Nice job Sir! Try having a wife who's a florist who works 16 hrs the day before Valentine's day and the day of. Then comes home dog tired.

Anyhoo, good job Sir. My wife says it was a nicely done arrangement.

Let me guess, you give her a bouquet of flowers from Safeway?
