This drum sander rental allows every customer to achieve professional results easily and safely. Because of its simple interface, it’s ideal for DIYers and contractors alike.

Sanding a floor is generally considered to be a daunting task. However, this powerful drum sander rental makes it easy, fast, and simple. It features a 1 hp constant speed motor and soft rubber drum with a unique locking system. 2 spring-loaded cams hold the sandpaper tightly in place, ensuring a secure connection. The slower constant speed of the drum will not gouge floors, giving the user peace of mind. The tilt action allows for more controlled and even sanding. Furthermore, the weight of the machine is specifically designed and evenly distributed for the best results. Lastly, this drum sander rental uses a standard 120v plug. Special connectors or adapters are not required. No matter what floor project you’re working on, this drum sander rental handles it all!

We carry a FULL LINE of various grit sandpapers always in stock and ready to go!!
