I would buy one in a heartbeat. I saw a 240 volt model which was brought over by the fellow from whom I bought my Precisio (240V also). He had his shop wired for 240 and 110 at adjacent outlets so that he could use his array of UK Festools along with 110 tools bought here in the States. The sander was an impressive piece, the best use of a Maxi-systainer yet. The fellow said he could flatten a tabletop in 10 to 15 minutes, and he was a very accomplished craftsman and designer, no hack for sure. I believe he considered it his favorite Festool but, of course, he loved them all anyway.
I love my Rotex but there is no doubt this machine could do many things a Rotex could not. Perhaps we are shooting ourselves in the foot when we tell questioners that you don't need a belt sander when you have a Rotex. Festool may feel that as long as that is the sentiment there is no use adapting the BS to our market. I would buy a 240 volt machine if I could find one since I already have the Precisio at 240. In fact, if I ever decide to build my dream workshop I think it would make sense to do a dual voltage layout just to get around the issue.
