Product description

Product Description

3M Elite Self-Generated Vacuum Random Orbital Sanders feature a self-generated vacuum (SGV) and deliver professional, dust-free performance and a swirl-free finish, hour after hour in high-production industrial environments where dust extraction is required.

From the Manufacturer

pgt;The 3M™ Elite Air-Powered Random Orbital Sander 28514 features a self-generated vacuum (SGV) and delivers professional dust-free performance and a swirl-free finish hour after hour in high-production industrial environments where dust extraction is required. A 3M best-in-class tool designed to optimize the performance of 3M™ abrasives, it features a 5" diameter suitable for most applications, and a 3/16" orbit ideal for general purpose sanding. Built with a powerful precision-balanced 0.28 HP motor and durable lightweight aluminum housing, this ergonomically designed workhorse stands up to industrial production and reduces user fatigue for hours of comfortable operation.

The Elite SGV sander is an integral part of the 3M™ Clean Sanding system made up of the SGV tool, Clean Sanding disc pad, and Clean Sanding disc (sold separately), engineered to effectively eliminate dust from the workpiece and surrounding space. It uses the inlet air to create its own venturi vacuum that extracts the dust from the work surface and expels it through a wide collection port on the back of the tool into a 3M™ filter bag. The 3M Clean Sanding filter bag included with the tool achieves superior HEPA-rated dust collection with an air filter inside the bag that locks dust away and effectively retains it for disposal.

High Performance, Superior Ergonomics
Designed with the operator in mind, 3M™ Elite Series Random Orbital Sanders are loaded with ergonomic features that decrease work strain and improve productivity.

Wrist and hand support:

  • Extended curved wrist rest reduces stress on hand and wrist and provides additional leverage.
  • Recessed lever platform eliminates pinch and pressure points on the operator’s palm.
  • Three grip sizes enable operator preference. The grip diameter on the tool is 2-3/4", with two additional grip sizes available (diameters of 2-1/2" and 3", sold separately).
  • Reduced vibration:

  • The rubber grip absorbs and reduces vibration and features 3M™ Gripping Material for a stronger grip and more control with less effort.
  • Durable composite cover extends to the base to absorb vibration and keeps tools in service by preventing cracked housings.
  • Enhanced safety features:

  • Internal muffler protects operator hearing and will not break off.
  • Convenient thumb-controlled speed dial reduces inadvertent speed changes.
  • 3M™ Hookit™ Disc Pad Included for Optimal Performance
    Elite 3M sanders perform best when paired with 3M disc pads and abrasives. Included with this sander is one 5" 3M™ Hookit™ Clean Sanding Low Profile Disc Pad 20353, recommended for flat sanding operations with 5" Hookit discs (sold separately). Designed specifically to optimize the performance of this tool, the disc pad maximizes dust extraction and minimizes vibration for smooth operation. The 3M proprietary hole pattern reduces swarf in the middle of the pad and increases disc performance and life. Offering convenience and versatility, the Hookit system enables easy disc changeouts and allows operators to use Scotch-Brite™ discs in addition to coated abrasive Hookit discs (both sold separately).

    Using Your Pneumatic Sander
    This tool is intended to be operated as a handheld tool and is air-powered. It requires an air compressor that will provide a clean lubricated air supply with an airflow rate of 17 standard cubic feet per minute (SCFM), or 481 liters per minute (LPM), and 90 pounds per square inch (psi) at the tool, i.e. the point where the air hose is connected to the tool, when the tool is running with the level fully depressed. Recommended is an approved 3/8 inch (10 mm) airline at the minimum length required for the application, with a maximum length of 25 feet (8 m). For more details about connecting the tool to your air supply, see the Instruction Manual. Max RPM is 12,000 at 90 psi.

    Why Choose a Random Orbital Sander?
    3M random orbital sanders optimize sanding and surface preparation on wood, metal, fiberglass and composite materials, and many other substrates. Also known as dual action (D/A) palm sanders, these industrial-grade tools rotate the abrasive disc and disc pad in two simultaneous overlapping oval patterns so no single abrasive particle follows the same path twice, producing a random scratch and swirl-free finish ready for paint or varnish.

    About 3M Abrasive Systems
    For more than a century, 3M has applied innovation and technology to improving our customers’ lives and supporting their business goals. Today the company, from its headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota, serves industrial and commercial customers and consumers in nearly 200 countries.
