WOOD magazine review

Easy-to-grab body grip and handle

Review Summary

Although not particularly aggressive, this model produced a top-notch finish in oak and pine. With a slim design and rubber molded grip, it proved the most comfortable to hold. But, at its maximum speed, the ROS20VK exhibited more vibration and rocking than we’d like. When using the dust canister, enough dust escaped into the air to warrant wearing a respirator or mask.
