Makita BO3711 1/3 Sheet Orbital Sander 240V

The Makita BO3711 orbital sander is a 1/3 sheet sander that uses a powerful 190w motor with a large easy to use trigger switch and ergonomic handle allowing one or two handed operation.


The Makita BO3711 Sander has variable speed control by dial which enables the user to suit sanding speed to individual jobs. The ergonomic body fits user's hand perfectly, providing sure grip and easy handling whether in a single or double handed operation. The compact and lightweight design has high manoeuvrability, sanding right up to the front of machine and edges. The simple to operate paper clamp ensures easy installation / removal of sandpaper. The rigid Aluminum foot with sponge sleeve provides high durability and effective vibration absorbing performance. The handles are rubberised to lessen vibration transfer and have anti-slip dimples for added grip. High dust extraction is achieved by the 8 holes on baseplate which suck up dust through machine into the rear mounted dust bag or connectable to vacuum cleaner.
