Detailed Description

Festool RTS 400 REQ Orbital Sander

The RTS 400 REQ designed for finish sanding of flat surfaces. It's light-weight and easy to operate one-handed so it's great for sanding vertical or overhead surfaces with minimal fatigue. It's small enough to sand inside an assembled cabinet. Using the included edge guard, you can sand close to adjacent vertical surfaces without causing damage. Its 80mm x 133mm (3-5/32" by 5-1/4") pad makes quick work of most small finish sanding jobs. (For larger jobs, we recommend the RS 2 E.)

The RTS 400 has a stepless variable speed motor with Festool's Multiple Material Control (MMC) technology. MMC is an electronic controller that ensures the sander will maintain the speed you choose – even under load. We recommend you use the RTS 400 REQ with a dust extractor. If that's not possible, Festool offers dust collection bags that fit directly on the dust port. For heavy users of the RTS 400, Festool offers an Abrasive Storage Systainer designed to hold the sandpaper for this sander. For sanding slightly curved surfaces, Festool offers the 490160 Interface Pad. It fits in between the sandpaper and the sander pad to provide a bit of cushion.

  • 120 volt, 2 amp, 250 watt motor — 25% more power that the previous model
  • 2mm (5/64") stroke
  • 6,000-12,000 OPM
  • 80mm x 130mm (3-5/32" x 5-1/4") rectagular pad with StickFix (hook & loop) sandpaper attachment

  • 1.1kg (2.4 lbs)
  • Plug-it detachable power cord
  • Systainer Storage Case – SYS 2 TL

Note: The DTS 400 & RTS 400 sanders are similar, but the pads are not interchangeable.
