Product Description

Porter Cable Model 7800 Drywall Sander

For Dust-Free Drywall Finishing. A must for residential remodeling projects and new construction, as well as occupied job sites. Hand sanding typically leaves tremendous amounts of dust on the surface, causing paint adhesion problems and rough finishes.

Eliminate the mess and known health hazards associated with traditional drywall sanding methods. Most drywall sanding and finishing methods can expose you to harmful drywall dust. Introduced into the ventilation system, this dust can be a long-term problem and inconvenience.

The Porter-Cable Model 7800 is 3-4 times faster and less fatiguing than hand sanding. Dust-free drywall finishing dramatically reduces harmful exposure to workers, and leaves a cleaner surface to allow for a better paint finish.

The model 7800 attached to a vacuum equipped with a high-efficiency dust collection bag gives the cleanest job possible.

The automatic sander can also be used for quickly smoothing previously painted walls prior to repainting.
