The Festool Planex LHS 225 Drywall Sander is a tool that has changed the way professional tradesmen sand drywall and plaster. Its modular design, exceptional dust collection, robust built quality, great ergonomics and quick return on investment have made the Planex a tool that will make you rethink the process of sanding drywall.
Recently, Ontario-based Precision Taping had the chance to try the Planex and CT 36 AutoClean Dust Extractor out for the first time. Precision Taping focuses primarily on performing decorative drywall finishes for high end custom homes.
“We know that our product is something our clients are going to look at everyday,” says Brian Kitchin, founder of Precision Taping.
While there's no question why they get to work on high end residences with the quality of work they do, the Planex helped Precision Taping complete their work quicker and in a more professional manner on this project. Granted, there's no substitute for experience and skill, but the right tools will certainly amplify your capabilities and productivity.
Nick Aitchison, Brian’s right hand man at Precision Taping, goes on to say, “We’ve used other brand name sanders, and there’s no camparison.” Referencing the Planex’s light weight, compact portability, and multiple lengths as his favorite features.
In conjunction with the CT 36 AutoClean Dust Extractor the Planex keeps the work area virtually dust free, creating a safe working environment. Kitchin concludes with saying, “Our tools are what earn us a living, that’s why we use the Festool Planex.”
