These air-powered sanders deliver professional performance and a swirl-free finish in high-production industrial environments that require dust extraction. The 3M clean sand system eliminates dust from the workpiece and surrounding space to improve sanding performance. The sander uses the inlet air to create its own venturi vacuum that extracts dust and expels it through a wide collection port and into your central vacuum system. Elite series palm sanders are loaded with upgraded features aimed at durability, performance, and operator comfort. Improved wrist support increases comfort and leverage. A safer thumb-operated speed control wheel reduces accidental speed changes. The aluminum housing adds durability and reduces vibration, and the durable composite cover helps prevent cracked housings. The internal muffler makes this elite series pneumatic random orbital sander 6 dB quieter than the original series. 5/16” diameter orbit provides an aggressive cut-rate on metal, composites, wood and more. A Hookit disc pad is included with this 6 inch random orbital sander, allowing the operator to quickly and easily apply and re-apply hook and loop discs to the sanding tool. Operates at 90 psi with an air flow rate of 17 SCFM. 3M Elite Central-Vacuum-Ready Random Orbital Sanders are best-in-class tools designed to optimize the performance of 3M abrasives. Built with a powerful, precision-balanced air-driven motors and durable lightweight aluminum housing, these ergonomically designed workhorses stand up to industrial production and reduce user fatigue for hours of comfortable operation.Elite central-vacuum-ready sanders can be connected to a central vacuum system or used with an external portable vacuum such as a shop vacuum. It has a threaded attachment feature that enables easy yet secure attachment and detachment of a 1" external threaded vacuum hose (sold separately) to effectively eliminate dust from the workpiece and surrounding space. High Performance, Superior ErgonomicsDesigned with the operator in mind, 3M Elite Central-Vacuum-Ready Random Orbital Sanders are loaded with ergonomic features that decrease work strain and improve productivity.Wrist and hand support Extended curved wrist rest reduces stress on hand and wrist and provides additional leverage Recessed lever platform eliminates pinch and pressure points on the operator's palm Three grip sizes enable operator preference. The grip diameter on the tool is 2-3/4” with two additional grip sizes available (diameters of 2-1/2” and 3” sold separately)Reduced vibration The rubber grip absorbs and reduces vibration and features 3M Gripping Material for a stronger grip and more control with less effort Durable composite cover extends to the base to absorb vibration and keeps tools in service by preventing cracked housingsEnhanced safety features Internal muffler protects operator hearing and will not break off Convenient thumb-controlled speed dial reduces inadvertent speed changesWhy Choose a Random Orbital Sander? 3M random orbital sanders optimize sanding and surface preparation on wood, metal, fiberglass and composite materials, and many other substrates. Also known as dual action (D/A) palm sanders, these industrial-grade tools rotate the abrasive disc and disc pad in two simultaneous overlapping oval patterns so no single abrasive particle follows the same path twice, producing a random scratch and swirl-free finish ready for paint or varnish.3M packages and labels its industrial/commercial products for purchase and use by industrial, professional, and commercial customers.
