Towson, Maryland-based Black + Decker introduced a newly updated Mouse Sander as well as new 1/4 Sheet and Random Orbit Sanders.
The 1/4 Sheet Sander and Random Orbit Sander are each the shortest sanders in their class, the company said. This brings the DIYer close to the work surface, which affords them premium maneuverability around their projects.
With a compact and ergonomic design, Black + Decker’s best-selling detail sander, the Mouse, is now improved. The 1.5A Mouse Sander can be gripped in three ways that provide maximum versatility. Palm grip is ideal for sanding surfaces, precision grip provides extreme maneuverability, and handle grip allows you to get into ultra tight spaces. The Mouse Sander’s handholds make it easy and comfortable to sand on a flat or raised surface – even horizontally or vertically. Its compact body, low-profile legs, and see-through dust canister make it great for all types of sanding projects around the home.
The company is also introducing the 2.0Ah 1/4 Sheet and Random Orbit Sanders. The 1/4 Sheet Sander is best for finish sanding and detail work while the Random Orbit Sander provides fast, efficient material removal.
Both sanders feature paddle switches instead of the traditional flip switch. The paddle switches are located on top of each sander and are activated by pressing down naturally with the palm of the hand as if the sander is in use. The sander can then be locked in either the on or off position for one-handed use.
