In 1951, Festool® introduced the world's first orbital sander, bringing a new level of control and convenience to woodworking and construction. In 1976, they followed up that innovation with the first random orbital sander, further revolutionizing sanding hardware. Now, over 30 years later, Festool sanders continue to lead the industry with their ergonomic, clean and efficient design.
The low vibration and light weight of Festool disc sanders make them comfortable to use over extended periods of time, even when you're sanding walls or ceilings. The variable speed motors of the ROTEX line of Festool sanders allows you to go from heavy material removal to delicate surface treatment with the touch of a dial, and Festool's full line of high-performance abrasives offers a grit for every job.
Festool finishing sanders are built to provide unparalleled control and coverage. With interchangeable triangular sanding pads, concave pads for linear profile sanding and much more, it's easy to find a sander for any surface. Most Festool sanders can also be fitted with a polishing pad for achieving a fine sheen on any material.
Of all the power tools in a standard wood shop, sanders often generate the most dust. Luckily, dust isn't a problem for Festool sanders. Like all Festool power tools, the company's sanders come equipped with dust extraction ports designed to feed directly into a Festool shop vac. By plugging the sander directly into the vacuum, you can even set the dust extraction system to turn on whenever the tool does, saving you time and keeping your shop clean.
From the comfort-conscious case design to the variable speeds, pads, and abrasives, to the smart integrated dust management, it's clear that Festool has put a lot of thought into their sanders. That's what happens when you lead an industry for over three decades. Choose a Festool sander that's right for your job, and benefit from that long experience.
