Yes... But not as easily as you'd hope for... I've done smaller (5'x8') areas successfully..
I use a dust extractor but before that i used a shop vac with a bag...i had to stop often to change the bag and clean the filter but it worked... without the bag i believe the shop vac would have died....btw the sander worked flawlessly i sanded approx 2000 sqft basement in 3 hrs.... you can find deals online for dust extractors
Yes it is... unless you're over 7ft tall or under 4ft
China.... Just like nearly everything else we get here
Yes but you'll probably tear up the sanding pads rather quickly
There is no vacuum. These type of sanders require a dust extractor preferably with self cleaning hepa filters....a shop vac will work but it will shorten the life span of it considerably.... This unit comes with a carry/storage bag.... Some come with a dust collection bag but this one does not
Yes it does
yes...it does indeed pivot
