A Review of Dewalt Sander Tools

DeWalt sanders are all the more common because of their distinctive bright coloring. But inside the rugged case, these sander tools are built to be some of the most dependable equipment on the market. Whether you are rough sanding a piece of hewn lumber, or putting the finishing gloss on a jewelry box, DeWalt power tools are designed to give you the best performance at a price that is comparable to similar brands. You can buy a different power sander with the same features, but you can't buy it from another company and expect the workmanship that has made DeWalt the iconic brand that it is today.

DeWalt Belt Sanders

The center of gravity has been lowered using a unique three wheel design, giving DeWalt belt sanders a more balanced feel than other brands. It is a bit heavier than some other models, weighing a full 12 pounds, but the extra weight is easily accounted for in the workhorse of a motor. At 8 amps, the motor is larger than almost any hand sander on the market, and is capable of sanding as much as 1400 square feet per minute. The front handle can be adjusted to two positions, and the rubber grips reduce vibration and offer a more comfortable feel for long sanding jobs.

DeWalt Orbital Sanders

DeWalt offers something that is not available in any other orbital sander. DeWalt orbital sanders have a trademarked system to maintain pad speed at start and stop, and that minimizes gouging and reduces the work required. You might think the 3 amp motor is small, but it is still able to kick loose with 12000 orbits per minute, and that translates into a silky smooth, natural finish. For more control and a more comfortable grip, the sander uses a special dual-plane, counter balanced fan system. No matter what type of surface you are working with, a DeWalt orbital sander can make short work of getting the finish you are looking for.

DeWalt Random Orbit Sanders

The purpose of a DeWalt random orbit sander is to rotate the sanding pad in different directions continuously, reducing the opportunity for grains of sand or other debris to gouge or scratch the surface. With a variable speed motor, orbits per minute can range from 7000 to 12000, and the quality of the finish can range from removing buildup to creating a surface so smooth it appears to be polished. The anti-slip top and firm body grips mean that even a long job won't be uncomfortable, and the 3 amp motor is definitely up for the long haul when the work has to be done.
