Today we got to play with a tool we’ve never seen the like of before, Bosch’s sanding roller – PRR 250ES. This has been released and priced for the DIY range, but may also appeal to a lot of tradies.
This is the most versatile sander you’ll ever use. It has a variety of attachments that allow you to sand just about anything. You wouldn’t use it to sand a whole table top, but it has no equal in getting into tight places. it also does very well polishing stainless steel (and probably aluminum) and removes heaps of material with an 80G sleeve on the drum/shank.
It’s very light at 1.3kg and comfortable in the hand, if a little long. It doesn’t make enough noise to warrant earmuffs, but glasses are a must. The guard looks bulky and annoying but its actually quite handy because you can easily move it around as you work, and it has a dust extraction port.
This is a tool i want on my shelf. You have to watch the video to get a real appreciation for just how much punch has been packed into this tool.
