Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Perfect for auto body work
The 12,000 RPM eccentric speed combined with a small, 3/16-inch sanding stroke allows for a level of surface finish suitable for auto-body work. The sander is perfect for sanding off the paint or roughing in Bondo on a car or truck.
Pro Has a dust extraction system
Contrarily to the majority of DA sanders, this instrument has a dedicated dust extraction system. It is used to collect the dust through and around the pads. As a result, the working surface is kept perfectly clean.
Pro Non-electric motor
As this palm sander does not have an electric motor, you will not have to worry about issues such as motor overheating or mechanical failures.
Pro Lightweight design
Due to its lightweight design, this palm sander is a perfect tool for long, non-stop jobs.
Con Requires an air compressor to use
This tool needs to be powered by an external air compressor, which must be capable of providing at least 439 l/min. Such compressor might cost you several hundreds of dollars.
