The HT8 is a 200mm (8″) high performance drum floor sander with clamp bar sanding drum technology. Available with multi-speed or single speed control.

The tool rental industry’s floor sander of choice, the clamp bar drum system allows the drum rubber to be easy serviced and replaced when needed minimising downtime and service costs. The unique drum rubber resists abrasion and damage caused by exposed nails while providing the feel and touch needed to sand a fine, score free finish.

Hiretech’s patented reversible clamp bar makes it easy for the user to fit abrasives, quickly and accurately. The drop forged clamp bar will not bend or distort over time ensuring that the abrasive paper is clamped securely in place at all times. The HT8’s unique lifting pin assembly lifts the clamp bar clear of the drum when fitting or removing abrasives.

The HT8 motor is a high speed heavy duty, self cooling four brush design. The motor will not stall or slow down under load when sanding with coarse grit abrasives, removing old surface finishes, deposits of wax or dirt. This high performance ensures a fast, consistent production rate making it easy for the user to get a regular and uniform finish across the whole floor area and throughout the complete range of abrasive grits.

Completely self contained with a high efficiency dust pickup, the HT8 breaks down into three simple component parts for easy transport. The high impact ABS injection moulded side guards and drum guard will not scar or scuff walls and protect the HT8 during transport.

The HT8 will sand all types of wooden floors including parquet to a fine score free finish. The HT8 can also be used on a wide range of other surfaces including some types of decking, fibre board, cork, engineered and composition floors.
