Festool RAS 115 Coarse Sander

Festool Sanders

Aggressive stripping and shaping.

Removing thick layers of varnish or paint on wood or metal requires either a great deal of patience or a machine with an impressive rate of material removal. The RAS rotary sander by Festool is the perfect choice for stripping and shaping. 500 watts of power concentrated in a 4.5" pad allows you to quickly power through just about any material.

All Festool sanders are designed and built with dust extraction efficiency as a primary consideration. In addition, they all are equipped with Festool's own mechanical fastening design, StickFix. This system provides a secure, non-slip bond, while allowing for quick abrasive changes.

If you still have questions, please feel free to contact us or your preferred Festool dealer for more information.
