Festool Introduces New PLANEX Drywall Sander

LEBANON, IN (August 29, 2017) – Festool recently announced the introduction of the PLANEX LHS-E 225 EQ, or PLANEX Easy, a light, long-reach direct drive, drywall sander with a plug-in-and-go design. PLANEX Easy is a single-piece machine which makes set-up fast and simple as well as easy to use. It has integrated dust extraction, intuitive controls, weighs in at only 8.8 lbs [4 kg] and was engineered for exceptional balance. PLANEX Easy’s EC TEC brushless motor has a motor-over-pad design and flexible head joint. Because there are no flexible drive cables or carbon brushes on the motor, PLANEX Easy requires little to no maintenance. PLANEX Easy will be available October 2, 2017.

“PLANEX Easy makes drywall sanding a whole lot easier while providing a superior end result,” says Leo Zirkler, Vice President of Marketing at Festool. “You can literally start using it as soon as you get your hands on one – it’s that simple.” Zirkler ends with, “PLANEX Easy also has our market-leading dust extraction capability, an EC TEC brushless motor for an incredibly long service life, and is backed by our 3-year, Service All-Inclusive warranty.”

The new Festool PLANEX Easy features include:

  • Simple set-up and intuitive controls let you focus on results
  • Low weight and perfect balance reduce fatigue
  • Flexible head design allows greater freedom-of-movement for easier sanding
  • Removable top section allows for up-close sanding to abutting surfaces such as inside edges
  • Integrated dust extraction design that captures dust at the surface helps you reduce jobsite cleanup while working in a cleaner environment
  • Uses same Granat abrasives as the classic Planex Drywall Sander
  • Direct drive, brushless, EC TEC motor is maintenance-free and ensures optimum power transmission and no flexible cable means less downtime with less weight
  • Covered by Festool-exclusive, 3-year Service All-Inclusive warranty
