Ridgid. Mine has never failed. $200.00 well spent.
Get one of those “erasers” that ya use to clean the belts and sleeves. sure makes the expendables last longer.
I was surprised at how much I use the belt feature.

I had both the ridgid and the HF. I like both. As just a spindle sander the HF is better but the multi-use of the ridgid is really nice.

Dust collection on the HF is lightyears better than the ridgid too.

I also have the Ridgid sander and have no bad issues with it.

I saw the rigid on Charles Neil’s show and he was talking how he liked it. I took a chance ( I generally don’t like Rigid Tools). Got to say it’s been one of the handiest additions I ever made to the shop. Love that little thing. Plop it up on the bench attach it to the DC and away you go and the diff spindle tubes handles almost any need. I only wish I could get a lot finer grit tubes for it. When I’m done back on the shelf. I give it two thumbs up.
