Metabo Introduces Palm-Sized Random Orbit Sander

WEST CHESTER, Pa., May 2007 -- Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, today introduced a new 5" random orbit sander that is the smallest sander in its line up.

The FSX200 random orbit sander offers 9,500 orbits per minute at an orbit size of 1/8". Using heavy grit sanding discs, the tool offers the power to remove wood and paint, and when equipped with a fine sanding paper, it is ideal for wood finishing. The sander's 5" hook and loop pad accepts Metabo's wide assortment of sanding and polishing discs, giving it the versatility to finish wood as well as polish and buff metals and plastics.

Metabo's new sander has a 2.2 amp motor and a soft, rubber-coated gripping surface that reduces vibration and enhances user comfort. The integral dust collection system that comes with the tool uses a highly efficient, washable Intec filter that reduces the need for frequent filter replacement. In addition, the sander's breaking ring controls the speed of the sanding pad when it is removed from the wood and prevents gauging the wood when the sander is returned to the work surface.

The FSX200 weighs 3.4 lbs. and has a dust-sealed switch, which lengthens the longevity of the switch by preventing the entry of dust.
