I don’t think I’ve ever had a jitterbug pneumatic sander, but I’ve had a circular sander. They use a lot of air to run, and the amount of electricity is more than operating an electric sander.

The Campbell Hausfeld Jitterbug Sander uses 9.0 CU FPM at 90 lbs pressure. A lot of air on a home compressor.

I don’t know if they are orbital or not. Here is one for sale.

After looking at it I know I have one somewhere in the shop. Maybe I tried it, maybe not.

Here is an interesting article on Jitterbug sanders.
