tech69 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.

rip-tide Not a pro, but do own Hutchins DA & inline sanders, they are worth the $$$ paid, heavy and well built.

A few things to mention that are worth noting, quite and toque. Speed can be adjusted on the fly, speed em up, removes filler quickly, slow em down for fine feathering.

And last but not least, will not be disappointed with the performance. I as the DBM, have owned them for 15 years, used for body work and wood work.







Hope this was helpful

Old thread, I wonder how all those sanders are holding up. My 15yr old Hutchins (now 22) that I bought used has been used every day at the shop for another 7 yrs and still working like it was a new one. Hands down THE absolute "best" Da sander ever built and still the Gold standard of Da's. unfortunately at just over 300.00 its for pros only. My IR da, I bought at Lowes is still working well and much lighter than the Hutchins but I rarely use it so who knows how well it'll hold up to every day shop use but at a price less than 100.00 I believe its perfect for any home builder or painter.
Post how your Da's are holding up over the years since this thread was started, it would be interesting to know, time tells all.

More than ten years of daily use with no tool oil in it at all...

that's the same thing i do. i hate it when you add a few drops to many. then when you use it shots all over the place.
