The PLANEX LHS-E 225 EQ, or PLANEX Easy is a light, long-reach direct drive, drywall sander with a plug-in-and-go design. The tool is a single-piece machine which makes set-up fast and simple as well as easy to use. It has integrated dust extraction, intuitive controls, weighs in at only 8.8 pounds and was engineered for exceptional balance. The tool’s EC TEC brushless motor has a motor-over-pad design and flexible head joint. Because there are no flexible drive cables or carbon brushes on the motor, PLANEX Easy requires little to no maintenance. The tool will be available in October.
