The motor delivers far more power than any typical electric random orbital sander on the market. The DEROS rivals the power found in pneumatic sanders, which are generally far superior in performance to their electric counterparts.
At only 3-1/2” tall, and 2.2 pounds, its petite profile makes the tool manageable in any sized hand, much like a pneumatic sander. Its light, compact form is particularly beneficial when sanding vertically, which can be tiring using typical electric random orbital sanders.
The soft-start feature delivers a gentle ramp-up to peak performance which, coupled with silky smooth ongoing operation (even with aggressive grits), makes sanding a more pleasant experience. Variable speed control built into the trigger mechanism provides smooth, single-handed speed changes which gives the operator exceptional finesse in moving across intricate areas of a project.
