The picture you posted is for the Tire Sander Pro (YT-TSP). The price is wrong as listed at Yokomo USA, it is listed at 190Yen not dollars. This is the newest tire sander and is belt driven. Only advantage I can see is that is is supposed to be quieter than the YT-TSM. The TSM is $90.75 at Yokomo USA and is $79.99 at Speedtech. That is only about $11.00 more. If you can purchase anything else to get the total over $100 you get a 10% discount. Maybe some wheels or if you have a Yoke, some parts.
I have the TSM and see no reason to get the TSP other it makes less noise. The TSP is noisey, doesn't bother me, and when I bring it out, others are always wanting to borrow it anyway. You can call Yokomo USA and they will be able to tell you whether either one is in stock.
