The best drum sander

Let’s start with answering the easiest (for us) question – what is the best drum sander? By far, the best drum sander we and many more wood floor sanding professionals work with is the German-made Hummel. As you may guess, the German beast is doing its wonder again, because the German industry is once again offering quality, reliability and durability. Well done, Germany, well done! Furthermore, the Hummel’s Super Hummel drum sander is highly recommended by a number of experienced professionals, it has a 300mm sanding drum and always guarantees a nice, even, smooth and uniform sand and effect. This machine comes equipped with a dust containment system and this is a big bonus and serious advantage.

The best orbital sander

For sanding against the grain you will need to stick to Hummel too, what a shocker! We promise it, we are not sponsored by the brand. This orbital sander guarantees a stable grip, a very powerful motor and a large vacuum to suck all the mess and dust.

The best edger

You are going to need a wood floor edger machine for all the detailed sanding work on the floorboards along the walls of the room, the edges of the room. So, when it comes to the best edger, we have a Swedish candidate here that we recommend highly. The Bona Edger XL is a first-class quality device. It comes with a convenient grip, it is loaded with power and it is very durable and reliable.
