Today, Festool is introducing the DTS 400 REQ Orbital Delta Sander to the US and Canadian markets. It features a triangular-shaped pad for convenient tight-quarters sanding or edge applications, plus a pad protector that’s designed to both minimize pad damage and protect adjacent surfaces during use. Designed for one-handed control and fine-sanding applications, the 2.4 lb. tool has step-less variable speed, which ranges from 6,000 to 12,000 RPM with a 2mm sanding stroke. A rubberized overmold should make the sander more comfortable to grip.
Festool reports that the new DTS 400 REQ’s 250 watt, 2.0-amp motor with MMC electronics is 25 percent more powerful than previous models, to help speed the sanding process along. Its bayonet-style dust port has been redesigned for a more robust and secure connection point to a dust extractor. Or, there’s an optional re-usable Long Life Filter Bag with quick release.
Festool’s DTS 400 REQ (model 201228) sells for $260 through its distributor network and online stores. Learn more about it by clicking here.
