Selling A Mirka Leros Pole Sander

Joe Elwick

I can’t believe how difficult it has been to sell an almost brand new Mirka Leros pole sander!! I bought two before Christmas, probably around September October time. Then I realised that one was enough, so I decided to sell after only using it twice for YouTube demos/reviews.

Taking into account it cost me over £900 with the carry case, I first put it on for sale at £750. I had a few interested but they were miles away. I Reduced it to £650 recently and still nothing?? Is there really no demand for these??

We use the other one on a weekly basis and it comes in very handy, so it is a surprise to me!! The Decorators Forum is my next stop!
