Mirka LEROS takes sanding projects to new heights
Mirka is set to revolutionise the sanding industry once again with the new Mirka LEROS, the world’s first and only electric random orbital ceiling and wall sander.
Weighing less than 3.5 kilograms, the innovative tool is also the lightest wall and ceiling sander on the market, ensuring better ergonomics, a faster sanding process (as users can sand for longer periods without fatigue) and a smooth finish every time.
Already awarded the prestigious, international Red Dot: Best of the Best Award 2018 for ground-breaking design, the new Mirka LEROS features a 180-degree flexible 225 millimetre sanding head and five millimetre random orbital movement, which enables it to respond precisely to the operator’s movement. These features also allow users to reach surfaces at more ergonomic angles, making it easier on the body.
Another advantage of the Mirka LEROS is the dual suction points in the sanding head and full force system, which allows the complete force to be transferred to the sanding head. This means that there is no need to press the tool against the sanding surface, removing the weight from the user’s hands and reducing fatigue.
If the user wishes to reach even higher, there is no need for a ladder as the Mirka LEROS features an optional 50 centimetres long extension shaft, specifically designed for sanding high walls and ceilings.
Corners may also be tackled with ease thanks to the random orbital movement and the compact design of the backing pad. The absence of carbon brushes in the motor ensures a constant speed even under heavy load and also makes the Mirka LEROS easy to maintain, as there is no need to replace brushes.
Like all Mirka sanding tools, the Mirka LEROS delivers optimal use with the brand’s net abrasives and dust extractors. This creates a cleaner and healthier, dust-free work environment for trade professionals whilst also ensuring a higher quality finish by keeping the abrasive and sanding surface free of dust.
Available with a practical, protective carry bag featuring storage pockets for accessories, the Mirka LEROS has revolutionised wall and ceiling sanding, making projects quicker, easier and more ergonomic than ever before, according to the company.
Brian Hamilton, Managing Director of Tenaru (Australian distributor for Mirka) said, “The Mirka LEROS is going to change the way that tradesmen work. It has unlimited applications, not only for walls and ceilings, but for marine projects and many other uses.”
