I had a dynabrade and the dust that collected at the bottom bogged it down. I cleaned it and poured some tranny fluid in the area and it worked fine after. My air vantage has never given me a problem but the plastic exhaust cap broke off before and replaced it. Must have dropped that thing at least a dozen times. It's a solid DA with a 3/32" throw. I also have a DA with a handle with a 3/8" orbit. It's a Chicago Pneumatic. I like it for stripping small areas and if you set it in rotary mode it's a great way to do some light shrinking after doing a door skin along the edges, or on brand new parts that have wobbles near the edge. It shrinks back the high spots, leaves a gentle scratch, and forces you or the painter to put primer in that area, which finalizes it for paint. Anywho, love the Airvantage. Next time I need a DA it will be an Airvantage for sure.
