Triton Launches New Random Orbit Sander

A leading manufacturer of precision woodworking power tools has released a new compact random orbit sander.

Triton Tools has added the 280W Random Orbit Sander (TROS125) to its popular and extensive product portfolio.

The powerful tool has a 125mm diameter hook-and-loop backing pad for quick changes of sanding discs and features variable speeds of 7,000 to 12,000min-1.

The speed is easily changed using an adjustable dial. At 280W, the sander boasts ample power for a variety of sanding tasks, leaving a smooth, flawless finish.

Dust is effectively dealt with by multiple extraction holes on the backing pad. There is also a vacuum dust extraction port that can be rotated 360°, increasing user safety and creating a clean work space.

Ergonomic rubber over-moulded grips reduce vibration and increase user comfort, precision and safety.

Weighing just 1.75kg, the 280W Random Orbit Sander is light and easy to manoeuvre across the wood.

Claire Sweet, Global Brand Manager at Triton Tools, said: “We are delighted to bring this compact yet powerful random orbit sander to market and we’re encouraged that it has already been well received by those using it.

“We are the number one choice for woodworking power tools, and this is another strong addition to our portfolio.”

Random orbit sanders differ from other sanders as they combine the oscillating action of an orbital sander with the rotation of a disc sander.

This two-pronged approach removes stock as well as giving smooth finishes, depending on the paper used.

The risk of swirl marks is also reduced in comparison to regular power sanders.

Included with the sander are a soft carry case for convenient storage and quick travel, three mesh sanding discs of various grits, a dust bag and a dust extraction port adaptor for different sanding applications.
