Hiretech HT8-1.2 Drum Floor Sander

The HT8 is a high performance 200mm (8″) drum floor sander that will level and sand all types of wooden floors, including parquet to a fine score free finish. The HT8 can also be used on a wide range of other surfaces including decking, fibre board, cork and composition floors.

The HT8 breaks down into three simple component parts for easy transport. The high impact ABS injection moulded side guards and drum guard will not scar or scuff walls and protect the HT8 during transportation.

The unique drum rubber resists abrasion and damage caused by exposed nails while providing the feel and touch needed to sand a fine, score free finish. Easily replaced in just 20 minutes the Hiretech drum rubber design minimises downtime and service costs.
