29 Jul Cordless 3 x 18 Beltsander from Milwaukee
The new cordless M18 FUEL™ Belt Sander (item 2832-20, $279) is distinguished by its best-in-class dust collection and ergonomic design. Generating the equivalent of 8 Amps of corded power, the 3×18 sander has a fast material removal rate with a belt speed range from 700 to 1,350 surface feet per minute. There’s a tool-free, adjustable pommel (top front handle) and a design that lets users work in confined corners and spaces. It’s only 10.6” long, 6.3” wide and 7.5” tall. Outfitted with a premium multi-layer dust bag and a universal vacuum hose adapter, the M18 FUEL™ Belt Sander offers best-in-class dust collection with over 80% dust collected during use. The new sander is fully compatible with the entire M18™ line of 250+ power tools, and the literature suggests a 6 Ah battery. It has a Powerstate brushless motor, Redlithium battery pack and RedLink Plus software. There’s a dual LED light, a lock-on button, and five speed settings. It comes with a 5-year warranty, and an 80-grit belt.
