New Drywall Sander from CS Unitec

CS Unitec's new ELS 225.1 Long-reach Drywall Sander with VacuGlide prepares wall and ceiling seams with a smooth finish quickly, cleanly and with 60% less effort prior to painting, plastering or decorating.

CS-Unitec-ELS-225-1-applic WThe adjustable vacuum suction of the VacuGlide System holds the sander to the surface, reducing the amount of pressure that needs to be applied. This feature allows for easier guiding of the sander and reduces the perceived weight of the tool to 3.3 lbs.

A spring-mounted dust shroud with sealing lip adapts to the surface, compensates for unevenness and prevents grooving when starting to sand.

The ELS 225.1 extends up to 9 feet and easily adapts to angles. The lightweight sander’s balanced handle and ergonomic design allow it to be guided for long periods of time with less operator fatigue, whether working on walls or overhead on ceilings.

Dust-free sanding discs for the ELS 225.1 have vacuum holes and use a hook and loop backing pad. When coupled with a dust extraction vacuum, these discs reduce airborne dust for a cleaner and safer working environment. The 9" disc diameter is ideal for sanding large surface areas.

The ELS 225.1 has a 5.5 Amp, variable-speed motor that operates from 1050-1600 RPM. Electronic features include soft start and overload protection. The sander is supplied with a transport bag, extension, brush rim and sanding pad starter kit (80, 100 and 120 grit).
