This is a pretty good deal, so long as you live on the mainland. Price is £69.99 but if you live in Northern Ireland it will cost £89.99 (lidl-ni.co.uk/en/…htm?articleId=8749). WTF is that all about?

They're £29.99 in Aldi!!
Well we can't even get an Aldi in Northern Ireland, let alone get ripped off by one. That sounds like a good price though. Is it for a similar spec machine?
Found this on Aldi - aldi.co.uk/750…300

It's £49.99 and not telescopic.

I was looking at this and was tempted. Can get a DeWalt one for £10 more.

That's just an orbital sander, not a drywall sander. A drywall sander is bigger because it's for sanding a large area.

Sold out.


Yeah, I think cursonova is referencing an item that was priced to clear at one time. How incredibly helpful.

Haha thanks. Shows my level of DIY.
dont you have to skim drywall to make it level/smooth ?

No, you can fill the screw holes and joins and then sand it smooth and paint. That's how the Yanks like to do it.
Does this create dust everywhere like a normal sander?
Could a drywall sander be used to even out a badly skimmed wall which has a few coats of emulsion paint in it, instead of re-skimming?
I emailed Lidl about the price discrepancy between Northern Ireland and the Mainland UK. This is their response:

"Thank you for your email.

We would like to inform you that every Lidl country operates independently, therefore there is no uniform pricing on any of our products. With regard to Lidl Northern Ireland and Lidl UK, retail prices can vary due to a number of different reasons such as transport costs, different VAT rates and of course various market regulations.

Lidl UK also have a much larger number of stores compared to NI, therefore supplier prices and promotions for specific regions can vary as a result of the signficant difference in order volumes.

If you need any other information please don't hesitate to contact me.

So it seems that Lidl think Northern Ireland have different VAT rates and market regulations than the rest of the UK.

Yes, but it has a vacuum attachment so there should be a less dust floating about than with a normal manual drywall pole sander. Wish I'd had one of these when I re-boarded my ceilings, it would have saved a hell of a lot of time and mess.

Why do they call it Lidl UK if it excludes their Northern Ireland branches. Surely it should be called Lidl GB?

Sanding diameter of the Aldi model is 180mm, vs 225mm on the Lidl, so quite different in that respect too (it'll take longer, and it'll be harder to ensure level of a particular area with the smaller diameter)
I'm renovating a house where the walls haven't been touched in 40 years. Striped the wallpaper to reveal a single cost of emulsion. Problem is the emulsion flakes off in some places and sticks day in others leaving a very patchy surface.
Would this sort it out?

Sincerest apologies, still in stock in local stores (Norwich and Dereham); else I wouldn't have bothered commenting if I were referring to a product that I knew was no longer in stock.
