Multi-sanders are very versatile meaning they’re perfect for completing a wide range of projects. They are compact in size, light and with a variety of sanding sheets they can easily tackle different surfaces. These sanders are also perfect when you need to reach in those difficult, tight areas or for more detailed work.

Random Orbital sanders
A Random Orbit Sanding base oscillates in circles but unlike other sanders, the base also spins in circles which efficiently gives a high removal rate and ultra-smooth finish. This tool is powerful enough to sand off paint on flat or curved surfaces as well as being delicate enough to prepare surfaces for a smooth finish, ready for painting.
We recommend the AdvancedOrbit 18, this sander gives you cordless freedom to complete projects indoors or out and is part of our 18 Volt PowerForAll family. Find out more here.
A very high removal rate makes a powerful Belt Sander ideal for large, flat surfaces such as doors and work tops. We recommend the PBS 75 A as it’s our most powerful belt sander. Find out more here.
