Default My Sander is Better than Yours!


this isn't me but this is what I use,
this is the original version but with a conversion kit to the new model, but still with the honda 2stroke, new model has 4stroke.

many different options for sanding, stripping, finishing,polishing,
tiltslab, concrete you name it,

wet sand gives you an amazing finish with out dust (with enviromats, water drains thru but catches slurry, or use the gutter system to catch it) without heat. no carbonizing. winning.
check out how far John gets in 8 minutes.
beat that =D

16grit anyone? no stripper required. you can even get mini pads for smaller detail.

Yeah, that's a wicked machine. Think I've seen it posted on here before. Puts even large electric rotary sanders to shame.

I imagine there is a learning curve to using such a powerful piece of equipment. Seems like it would be easy to gouge the wood, or leave unsightly swirls.

Super cool though.

On a side note, what kind (species) of siding do you suppose he's stripping there? The dark red color makes me think some kind of cedar. Presumably being in New Zealand though, I wouldn't know.

yep, looks like cedar to me also.

im sure u can use it in USA. talked to him last week he exports quiet a few there, there is enviro mat's u use. the slurry (no dust) falls on it and catches it. if u worried about led. u use the gutter system. it filters off into buckets and gathers it and the over flow can run off into the drain (tests show 99.9% of lead contained in buckets)


as per the previous comment "undulation" . u get that if you bounce around and dont have the machine flat. u dont push on it. but just more guide it along.
the only time i've felt it to be hard to keep flat is wen u put on a brand new zerconia disc. it can bounce for a bit. but just lower rpm's and start again.
when done right. its immaculate. i haven't seen much warping/undulation only when ive been riding on a edge u can really easily gauge the timber too. esp if you're using the 16grit.

i just sand up houses for repaints (not strip) just with the 60 wet sand. and it feathers out any layers de-laminating and cause its water sand they dont continue de-laminating afterwards. i just buzzed up a 4 bedrom house all weather boards and windows sills in about 4 hours. (a 60wet sand is about the same finish as a 120g dry sand) makes my job so easy now. rain hail shine.. out there buzzing it up =D

yeah i posted a video ages ago of this machine and ppl said it looked like a joke etc cause they thought the paint he was taking off was like 2 coats when in fact it was SEATOSKY paint stripper, its BLUE. on there, so when he buzzed it off it came off so easy ppl thought the BLUE was 2 coats of paint... some ppl ... lol)

the tough part is actually that pad he using does the underside edge too. if your not skilled with it u can make it look wobbly cause the COMBO pad he is using there does both at the same time. now they have a frame attachment called "underside pro" it tilts the head flat and has a guide u set to how much u want on/off and has a fold over splash guard. and u can buzz along with a smaller disc on there. that will be my next attachment for it .

Other than the engine unit, what kind of weight are you holding up with your hands and arms?

Maybe not in those west coast states. Too much skill to operate while you're stoned on the legal marijuana.

the original model u had the whole engine weight on the boom arm, (like a weed eater) now its just the motor on your backpack and the boom arm is connected with a rotating core drive train (like a giant dremel) there is almost no weight on your arms and its short and way more manouverable. can get up a ladder etc. water comes out center of it now.
