Festool 567863 RTS 400 EQ Orbital Sander
I don’t normally like putting two tools from the same manufacturer on the same list, even if they are as good as Festool. Nevertheless, I decided to include this sander from Festool because it’s so unique. While this has a rectangular shape, like the other sanders we’ve looked at, it’s only got a 3-5/32 inch x 5-1/4 inch pad. That doesn’t make it a quarter sheet sander or any other typical category of sander and this model has been designed for use in situations where a narrower finish sander is needed, without going to a detail sander. The drive is the same as its larger cousin, just in a smaller package. Sanding sheets are attached via hook and loop.
