This is the largest orbital sander that Festool makes. It takes a 4 1/2" x 9" (115 x 228 mm) sanding strip - basically a 1/2 sheet. While the range of pre-punched sandpaper Festool offers for this is pretty small, you can get an accessory punch that you can use to punch dust collection holes in any sandpaper. This is the sander we recommend for large surfaces. For panel sanding there is no substitute. The RS 2 E has a fairly fine stroke so it's a great way to do finish sanding on wood, intermediate sanding of varnished doors, leveling large surfaces, etc. You can also sand right up to the edge on three sides for full area sanding with no finishing work. An ergonomic extra handgrip gives you easy guidance with little force, which helps you avoid premature fatigue during long sessions. VS balancing makes it very smooth running, which makes it even less tiring to use.

Ordinarily a large sander means lots of dust, so you'll really appreciate Festool's superb dust collection features that keep your shop from filling up with dust. The constant dust collection will help keep the large sanding sheets dust-free, and they'll cut longer and cut faster because you will be sanding your work, not a layer of dust left by the last sanding stroke. The sander comes with the standard hook and loop base, but it is also has clamps so you can use any sandpaper on the market. Packed in a Systainer 2.
