Thanks for the great advice!..I think I might cancel my order for the Porter Cable 7800 pole sander and just use the festool for a while...You might have just saved me $600....I've used a Porter Cable 1/4 sheet palm sander for years without the vacuum,{obviously when the house is unoccupied.}...The dust ,however goes everywhere and you need to wear a dust mask for hours until the dust has settled...I usually pole sand the whole wall with a radius 360 after the repair patches are sanded down....This last job I had to pole sand (and hand sand) basically an entire pail of mud's worth of patching because the place was lived in...That was tiring!
