Ergonomics

An extension of you.

Ergonomics are an important consideration in the design process for Festool power tools. Rotex sanders are developed operate with minimal noise levels, have virtually no vibration effects, and to be ambidextrous.

Centrally located controls

Virtually no vibration.

Have you ever walked away from a sanding project and felt like you had just gotten done running a jack hammer all day? If so, you obviously weren't using a Festool sander. Every sander has a custom-made counterweight to balance it perfectly, much like your tires are baA AQ lanced on your vehicle. If counterweights were mass-produced, the balance would not be optimal for each machine. This manufacturing process leads to sanding that could be described as a Zen experience.

Low noise levels.

Your hearing is as important to us as it is to you. While you should always use proper hearing protection, Rotex sanders are designed and tested to minimize operating noise levels. Because many of our customers use their tools for on-site work, it's important that they operate quietly and not disturb your clients.
