Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great for detail finishing
The low amplitude (2mm) eccentric motion, combined with the maximum speed of 12000 RPM, makes this palm sander a perfect tool for surface finishing.
Pro Versatile in light-duty applications
Due to the broad speed range (6000-12000 RPM), you can use the rough sanding pads to start the job and then achieve the perfect surface finish using your finest sanding pads.
Pro Perfect for corners
Due to the specific form of the pad, this palm sander is perfect for sanding right angle and sharp angle corners.
Pro Includes a handy dust bag
You won’t need to buy an external vacuum unit for this device as its 250 W motor is capable of extracting dust from the workpiece. However, if you do have an external vacuum unit, you can hook it up using the Festool’s 27mm adapter.
Con Unusable for heavy-duty jobs
The small pad size and minimal material removing capabilities, make this palm sander unsuitable for any heavy-duty applications.
Con Expensive to run
It doesn’t accept the self-cut and self-punched sandpaper. You will have to buy the expensive Festool's abrasive sheets, which cost around $27.00 per a 50-sheet pack.
