  • ONE+ Random Orbit Sander
  • Compact Palm grip handle for added comfort
  • Cyclonic dust collection system. Runtime up to 45min with RB18L50 5.0Ah battery
  • Livetool indicator glows blue when tool is powered
  • Large 2.4mm Orbit diameter for efficient stock removal

Using the Ryobi One+ 5Ah battery the Ryobi Orbital Sander is capable of an incredible 40 minutes of continuous run time making this a match for all but the toughest sanding jobs.

One of the biggest features of the Ryobi ONE+ Orbital Sander is the 20K oscillations per minute output that the sander is capable of. The large 2.4mm orbit diameter really does most of the hard work for you.

The oscillating function not only helps remove material from the surface it also loosens dust already collected on the sanding pad – this increases the endurance of the pads as you won’t need to stop and physically clean the pad as often. The dual motors also provide a scratch free finish for your projects especially when paired with finer grade sanding disks.

Ryobi sells a sanding accessory kit designed especially for this orbital sander and they work well together. 3rd party sanding disk are also available online.
