This well-built palm sander is a perfect choice for those who are ready to spend a fortune on a professional tool capable of rapid yet precise material removal. It has a power of a belt sander, combined with the precision of a random orbital sander.
Pro Ideal for heavy-duty projects
This palm sander has the precision of a random orbit sander and the power of a belt sander. This is possible because of the Dual Mode Sanding technology implemented by the Festool. It gives the tool two working modes: a random orbital mode and an aggressive, gear-driven mode. You can use the random orbital mode when you need a high-quality surface finish, while the gear-driven mode is perfect when you need to remove a lot of material rapidly.
Pro Built to last
This palm sander is constructed entirely from massive die-cast, high-quality plastic parts. The exterior plastic parts are coated in tough and rigid rubber. This is used as a solid shell that protects the sensitive electronics and the motor. Additionally, the rubber-coated handles reduce the risk of accidental hand slipping.
Con Very expensive
The $595.00 price is the most noticeable disadvantage of this palm sander. With this money, you can buy a professional belt sander, a high-quality random orbital sander, and a decent sheet sander. Even after that, you'll have some money left to spend on pads and sanding paper.
