The Dewalt DCW220NT-XJ 18v XR brushless 75 mm Belt Sander is ideal for smoothing, levelling, preparing for painting, finishing stairs, sanding doors and more. Accepting 75 x 533mm sanding belts, the abrasives can be changed quickly and easily without the need for any additional tools.  This variable speed sander from DeWalt operates from 198m/min to 320m/min gives you complete control to ensure the best results. The sander includes an over-molded handle, ergonomic rear and front handle to ensure fatigue is reduced and work is completed comfortably. The tool also incorporates a lock on button for longer working on larger pieces. Dust collection can either be to the supplied dust bag, or, thanks to the included Wireless Tool Control, can be connected to an external dust extractor to ensure a cleaner work environment.  The direct AirLock dust port allows for a secure connection to both bag or external extractor.

What should I look for when buying a Cordless Sander?

Cordless Sanders take a lot of hassle out of tasks that, if done by hand, would potentially be laborious and time-consuming. It’s important to choose the type of Sander that meets your needs; our range includes Belt Sanders, which are generally used to prepare wood and other materials for finishing and Random Orbit Sanders, which use a fast cyclical motion to remove material from your workpiece and are designed to be easy to use on flat surfaces.

Once you know what kind of machine you need, what features should you be looking out for? One key feature is the tool’s No Load Speed; this tells you how fast it operates and is usually measured in revolutions per minute (RPM). Think about the kind of work you’ll be doing; a lower RPM rate gives you more control over the end result but can mean tasks take longer. You’ll also want to check how the paper is attached to the tool as “quick fit” attachments will generally make life easier. Finally, check whether a dust collection system is part of the sander, as this kind of work can generate a lot of debris.

Which is better: brushless or brushed tools?

Brushed motors use carbon brushes to transfer power from the fixed part of the motor to the rotor. This creates a reliable and relatively inexpensive motor, but brushed motors do require regular maintenance, in order to either clean the brushes or replace them as they wear out. A brushless motor, by contrast, uses a magnet mounted on the rotor to generate the power and electrical switching to perform the function carried out by the brushes. The additional complexity of the motor’s working means that brushless motors are usually more expensive than brushed.

Which voltage should I choose?

Our range starts with 18v Sanders, which have developed as the industry standard for DIY enthusiasts and professionals alike.

"So far so good , replaced mains powered unit from supermarket that in truth had served me well . I bought the Dewalt since I had a few more complex jobs coming up and I wanted the flexibility of a cordless sander . I standardised on the Dewalt batteries a few years ago so I've got a selection of batteries upto 5.0 ampere hour to choose from . Battery life is wholly down to how hard you use the sander , don't expect a long time if you are pushing hard . The dust extraction using the bag works well , not tried hooking it up to my Henry yet . It's early days but it's looking good. "
