Oscillating Spindle Sander/Edge Sander Combos - Ridgid vs Grizzly

Looking to pick up an oscillating spindle sander/edge sander combo. Trying to decide between the Ridgid and the Grizzly. Ridgid is about about $40-50 cheaper than the Grizzly. Anyone have any experience with either tool?

Love my Ridgid. Never used the Grizzly....my experience has been that the better Grizzly stationary machines are pretty decent, whereas their lower end stuff tends to be more hit or miss.

+1 for the Ridgid and I won't be the only one.

I have a Grizzly and it has worked real well, Craftsman sells an identical sander just different colors, but I kind of wished I had gotten the one you can install a belt on besides the spindle

I have the Ridgid and have never regretted getting it. It's a workhorse. Very hard to bog down. I've used it for hours without any problems at all.
