Festool Planex LHS 225 Long Reach Drywall Sander

Festool_planex.jpg

We felt we had to emerge from our renovation coma to spread the word on this one. Festool's new (new to the US, at least) drywall sander. Even though it kinda looks like it was designed by H.R. Giger, we have the feeling that it might be pound for pound the most time/agony saving tool ever invented. We've never even touched the thing, but we've sanded enough joint compound in our time to know what a tedious, dusty, pain in the arse it is. Combine that horror-show with Festool's core belief in the eradication of jobsite dust and their freakishly high quality standards and you're talking Planex.

There's a lot to say about this tool. But first off, one of the accessories is a body harness. How wild is that?

What does it cost, you ask? Well, it's a Festool item, so the answer is, "more than your mortgage." Just the wand part is a grand and you won't be able to get by without a $600 vacuum (Body harness: $200). So it adds up quick.

There's more information over at FestoolProducts.com and the Festool Site
