Our 3M™ Sander/Buffer 28773 is a lightweight air-powered rotary tool designed to run a variety of 5-6˝ abrasives. One of our highest powered sanding and buffing tools, it is commonly used in AOEM paint shops for sanding applications as well as removing paint defects or imperfections in automotive clear coats.

Buffing and Sanding Tool Offers Versatility
3M™ designed the professional-grade 3M™ Sander/Buffer 28773 with versatility in mind to suit a range of applications. Operators will appreciate its 1 HP motor when greater power is needed for demanding applications.

Used together with 3M™ Foam or Wool Buffing Pads (sold separately), this sander/buffer helps paint shops save time and money by repairing defects rather than repainting. After the defect is properly sanded out of the part, a buffing pad is used for follow-up work. This rotary tool was carefully engineered to optimize the performance of 3M™ Disc Pads and 3M™ Foam or Wool Buffing Pads. Wool buffing pads are ideal for compounding applications, while foam pads are appropriate for buffing and polishing applications. Use this tool with 3M™ Perfect-It™ buffing pads or with 3M™ Finesse-It™ backup pads and sanding and polishing discs.

Not exclusive to auto body shops, the 3M™ Sander/Buffer 28773 is an excellent choice for a variety of repairs on different substrates across a wide range of industrial applications – from paint and clear coat to lacquered wood, solid surface to acrylic.

Improving Surfaces with Every Rotation
Rotary tools spin the disc pad or buffing pad in a clockwise direction. Rotary sanding tools can operate at high speeds and remove defects or achieve paint prep very quickly. If scratches run deep, operators may want to use a rotary tool to enhance throughput and productivity. Subsequent finishing may require the use of a random orbital tool. Our Sander/Buffer tool is pneumatically powered, and operators should follow the instruction manual and ensure tool speed does not exceed the maximum operating speed of any accessories or product used. All of these precautionary measures help the tool perform optimally and keep operators safe.

Ergonomic Features Provide Maximum Comfort
For greater operator comfort, the tool has a lightweight, ergonomic design and quiet operation. The tool grip features patented 3M™ Gripping Material to provide a secure hold and enhanced control with less hand pressure, even if polish finds its way onto the grip. Additionally, the gripping material helps reduce vibration for increased comfort. These features enable professional performance with less operator effort, thus maximizing productivity.
