The 10 Best Pneumatic Sanders
This wiki has been updated 16 times since it was first published in February of 2019. When it comes to cabinetry, furniture building and other carpentry or metalwork projects, it’s tough to achieve a finished product you can be truly proud of without a quality sander to smooth surfaces and add shape. These pneumatic models are quite powerful, and they’re available in several styles — such as belt, line, orbital and drum — for tackling different jobs and various materials. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Included two models — the DeWalt DWMT70781L and Ingersoll Rand 4151 — that are designed for the user to operate with the palm of their hand.

Noted that the Chicago Pneumatic CP7200S comes with a tough carrying case, which could be a selling point for those who do not already possess a tool box. In an effort to provide an option that is specifically suited for more detailed, meticulous projects, we’ve included the Shop Fox D4594, which — while it may sacrifice a little bit of power — is nimble and well-balanced, allowing you to work with precision on delicate materials. Considered the Goplus Orbital, but reports indicate that it gets struck frequently and sometimes breaks down completely.
