Use Air Sanders for surface preparation, ideal for removing rust, body filler, and paint. Air tools are powered by an air compressor that forces pressurised air through a compressor hose. This gives you continuous airflow and fully controlled by a palm or thumb trigger. Our RS PRO range includes a selection of air sanders & polishers with a choice in design from single orbital units to complete kits with sanding disks and buffing pads.
Why would you need a pneumatic air tool?
Air sanders are a reliable and versatile air tool that can be used in a range of applications. Interchangeable pad bases allow the user to sand and prepare a surface much quicker than using sandpaper alone. Ideal for small and large projects, plus they are easy to use. To achieve a professional finish a dedicated machine polisher like our pistol polisher set is ideal for removing swirl marks left by orbital sanders.

Things to consider
When buying a sander/polisher always ensure you work at the rated pressure and use the correct hose connection to avoid air leaks or hose failure. Size matters, a large pad orbital sander is effective for the larger area, but a small pad sander will reach into smaller areas.
Use an Air Sander in workshops, collision care, and restoration projects.
