Hello friends. Is there someone who can give me a heads up on the Grizzly Model G1071 Oscillating Spindel sander. I’m looking to drop between $700.00 and $2000.00 for a new one. I would even purchase a great used one, if there is one available. Thanks for your time. BIGD1

Hello dusters. I posted the comment about the Grizzly Oscillating Sander. Thanks for all the “READS.” I went ahead and purchased the “Oliver” Oscillating Sander. I like the 2HP motor it has, and the ability to switch the different spindels 180 degrees, and get more use of your sand paper. We’ll see how it performs. If anyone has this sander, I’ll accept a review from you. Thanks.

Hi Donald, guess I missed your origional post. I have the 1071. I use it pretty much daily if not but for 2-3 minutes. I so far have no complaints but I think you did well going the 2hp route as the 1hp is a touch light sometimes but you make it work. BTW the spindle paper is easy to 180 on the grizz as well. I will add that the dust collection is not the greatest but I survive it. How is the dust collection on the oliver ?

Well I must say, I purchased the Oliver Oscillating Spindle Sander. Received it yesterday. So pleased at this point. The 2 HP will be nice. I will give it 6 stars.
