  • The quick and easy way to perfect surfaces

    October 2016
    Festool didn't call its new long-reach sander "easy" for nothing – the Planex easy is light, incredibly robust and guaranteed to impress thanks to its intuitive operation. It makes preparing rooms for dry mortarless construction far easier and quicker. The brushless EC-TEC motor is not only maintenance-free but also ensures direct force transmission to the sanding pad without the need for a flexible shaft. Thanks to its simple handling, ceilings and walls can be sanded quickly, evenly and easily – and its low weight means that users will find the sanding process less tiring and more efficient, allowing them to achieve their goal of the perfect surface.
