Festool USA and Festool Canada are introducing two new 250-watt orbital sanders, models DTS 400 REQ and RTS 400 REQ.
At 2.5 lbs., both models are compact and lightweight and feature a 25 percent increase in power over previous models, according to the companies.
Other new features include a pad protector designed for minimizing pad damage and protecting adjacent surfaces, a rubberized over-grip, a bayonet-style dust port connection and an optional, re-usable Longlife Filter Bag with quick release.
“Sanding is hard work and these new orbital sanders are specifically designed to make that work easier,” Festool vice president of marketing Leo Zirkler said in a statement. “They’re powerful, yet lightweight and compact — ideal for working on vertical and overhead surfaces — while providing superior finish quality.”
