MAKITA'S NEW FINISHING SANDER DELIVERS FAST, SMOOTH PERFORMANCE WITH BETTER GRIP AND CONTROL

DECEMBER 1, 2007  Makita U.S.A., Inc., manufacturer of high quality industrial power tools and accessories, is proud to announce the release of its new Finishing Sander (model BO4556K). The new finishing sander features 14,000 OPM for fast and smooth finishing sanding, reduced vibration, and a rubberized palm grip for better control.  It is ideal for wood workers and finish carpenters who require a best-in-class sander. 
 
The new finishing sander features an ergonomically designed rubberized palm that fits like a glove with even pressure and easy control. These comfort features are combined with a 2 AMP motor that produces 14,000 OPM for fast and smooth sanding. In addition, the precision engineered all-ball-bearing construction significantly reduces vibration and noise.
 
The rubber sealed switch prevents dust contamination and increases durability, while the paper clamps are large and easy to use for fast and efficient paper installation. The efficient through-the-pad dust collection system helps provide a cleaner work environment, while the fabric dust bag has an extra wide mouth for faster disposal.
 
Model BO4556K includes abrasive paper, dust bag, punch plate, and tool case. Model BO4556 includes the abrasive paper, dust bag, and punch plate (Makita offers a variety of hoses and adapters for attachment to vacuum systems).
