Festool USA’s new Planex LHS 2 225 Drywall Sander advances the company’s previous best-in-class generations of drywall sanders with innovative features that enhance efficiency and results on the job site.
Featuring a new LED light ring that ensures detailed visibility of the sanding path, the new Planex sander enables the user to see any unevenness on the surface during sanding. Because this on-board illumination immediately highlights surface irregularities, it also reduces the time needed to fix any problems, helping end-users achieve a better-finished product in less time. The new Planex uses a random orbit sanding motion to eliminate grooves and to ensure a flawless finish.
The adjustable suction power on the lightweight Planex – which keeps the tool snug with the work surface – helps to reduce the workload placed on the user’s arms and back. The tool connects to the Festool CT 36 E AC dust extractor to create a nearly dust-free sanding solution. To also combat dust Festool has unveiled a new version of the high-quality Granat abrasive. A new hole pattern allows for even better dust extraction when used with any of the Festool drywall sanders.
“The Planex name has long stood for precision results and flexibility. Users will appreciate the new Planex LHS 2 225 for its ease of use and its ability to make jobs faster, better, and cleaner than ever,” said Rick Bush, product marketing manager for Festool.
The Planex LHS 2 225 Drywall Sander is engineered for any situation, with the addition of the guide extension accessory, the 47” Planex can reach up to 65”. This machine is equipped for both high ceilings and tight spaces. Its ergonomic T-handle means the machine is easy to maneuver for long periods. Once the job is complete, the Planex and its accessories conveniently travel in the new Festool SYS3 XXL Systainer.
