This random-orbit sander’s 2.5mm oscillation pattern makes it a good choice for finishing while still being effective for heavier stock removal when needed.
Only 4" tall and weighing 0.9kg (just under 2 lb), it has a compact, ergonomic design, so it’s comfortable to operate for long sessions, and its 6" diameter platen lets you work quickly over large areas. It connects to standard 3/8" diameter air hoses, requiring 17 cfm of air at pressure up 90 psi.
Effectively dust-free in use, it has a rear port for connection to a 1" diameter vacuum hose, and a pattern of holes in the platen that draws dust from across the entire sanding disc. It has a noise rating of 73 dB, low vibration output (2.3m/s²) and a shielded outlet port that directs exhaust air away from the user.
The upper control paddle lets you adjust speed on the fly without interrupting your work – pressing the paddle increases the speed up to 12,000 rpm, a lighter squeeze slows the motor, and releasing it stops the tool within seconds.
Compatible with a range of Mirka discs, it lets you select from a full line of abrasive types and grits to match the application.
Powerful yet precise, this is a well-designed tool, backed by a 2-year warranty.
