We haven't had any stock recalled from us. We have sold a number of machines now as well.

We are due new stock next week.

That was a year ago, they're back now; just seem to be trickling into the UK very slowly...

Those items are on our radar, however, I can't tell you when the boss man will have them in stock yet but I know he is working on it

I bought one from Clean and Shiny a couple of weeks ago and can tell you it is a brilliant machine. The overheating problem some people were getting with early models don't seem to be an issue any more.

used one today with Flex UK and it was really smooth and quiet and very nice to handle in anger. The overheating was caused by poor airflow in the original version launched elsewhere last year, but is fixed now by a different shroud and venting system.

That's it am getting one, am a bit fed up with the Rupes mark 2 still slightly bogging down or slowing even without applying to much downward pressure, so this could be my answer

But the flex 3401 will still be the one I use for cutting as it has just made mince meat of a Lamborghini rock hard paint I've just corrected
