The video below is of professional decorator Jason showcasing testing the Mirka Dero Vs the Festool ETS EC150 side by side. Both these machiens are top-of-the-range sanders. Both are market leaders and both cost heavy money.

You’ll find the Mirka Deros slightly lighter than the Festool and perhaps easier to handle. Speed settings and control are roughly the same. The Festool stops spinning as soon as you turn it off which means it’s less likely to go bouncing off if you put it down too soon.

The Deros is the cheaper option and is a lot closer to being 100% dust free. You can’t tell from this video, but when you’re sanding filler on a wall with the Festool, you do notice dust falling, whereas you don’t with the Mirka Deros. Full review here.


The other thing of note is the build quality. Mirka have a reputation for breaking fairly often, particularly when your sander reaches a couple of years old. Festool seem to last a lot longer. Both come with breakdown cover as standard.

Both these sanders are market leaders when it comes to dust-free sanding, and either will act as a game-changer for any professional decorator. Everyone has a different view on the Mirka Vs Festool debate. At least this blog offers a bit of insight when it comes to Mirka Deros Vs Festool ETS EC150.
