Pros and cons

According to our sander expert
  • This type of sander is ideal for sanding stairs, large flat areas, walls, and wood flooring, thanks to the rectangular pad.
  • You keep control over the sanding speed, thanks to the variable speed control.
  • Thanks to the low vibration value of 3.5m/s, you'll hardly feel the vibrations in your arm, even during intensive sanding.
  • Due to the 2-meter cord, you have limited freedom of movement.

Description

With the Makita BO3711 sheet sander, you'll sand thoroughly, not only horizontally, but also vertically, thanks to the light weight of 1.6 kilograms. For example, your paneling or front door can simply be left in place to be sanded. Don't worry about the released dust falling into your face: the included dust tray catches everything neatly. The 190-watt sheet sander makes 22,000 oscillations per minute. Simply set the RPM, so that you can tackle every sanding job at the most ideal speed. Sandpaper can be fastened with clamps, so you can be sure that the paper stays tight on the sanding pad.
