Electric Floor sander

Excellent sander for all kinds of DIY jobs domestic as well as professional and takes the hard work out of sanding woodwork and walls for finishing, a real timesaver...

    Make your wooden floors look brand new!

    Our electric drum sanders are high quality, professional pieces of equipment designed for quickly and efficiently sanding away the old top layer from wooden floorboards to remove imperfections, paint, stains and varnish. Once you have removed the old, worn layer from the floorboards, a beautiful, fresh and clean wooden surface is left behind, ready for a new coat of varnish. Once you finish, your wooden floors will look like new!

    These drum floor sanders are very versatile. They are suitable for a range of hardwood floors, including parquet, mixed-width boards, some types of decking, fibreboard, cork, engineered, and composition floors. The machines have high speed motors with dynamically balanced sanding drums. These features offer consistent sanding so that you can achieve an even finish across the whole floor. These floor sanders have comfortable handles, and they easy to control. A high powered vacuum system picks up dust as you go, keeping the area clean and tidy. These convenient floor sanders are lightweight and easy to transport, as they break down into 3 components for carrying and transporting.

    Professional Floor Sanding Machine

    Rejuvenate your floorboards without the cost.

    You can hire a floor sander easily - online or over the phone! Let us know when you want to hire the floor sander and how long you want it for, and we can make it happen. An RCD Power Breaker is included in the hire to keep you safe while you work. We can even provide the sanding sheets, dust collection bags and deliver them to your address. You can add these to your order during checkout. We recommend using at least 3 of each grit of sanding sheet per room and at least 2 dust bags per room. If you need any help or advice, you can use our live chat service on our website to speak to an advisor or call our Hire Team – they will be happy to help.

    For more information, read our guide; How to Sand a Wooden Floor.

    Please note: We also recommend using a floor edging sander to get right up to skirting boards and into corners. Using both of these machines allows you to complete the job correctly and achieve the most professional finish. We offer a Floor Sander Hire Package that gives you both sanders together at a reduced rate compared to hiring separately. Please ensure that the sanding plate that holds down the sanding sheet is fully screwed before operating the machine. Failure to do so can result in damage to the machine or the floor.

It looks like some of the fields are invalid. Please check them and try again.

From 1st April 2022, our suppliers will only fuel machines with white diesel. This is due to new government guidelines.

If you, as the hirer, refuel any equipment while it is in your possession, it must be with WHITE DIESEL.


If you return a machine refuelled with rebated diesel, suppliers will have to remove and dispose of the fuel. They must also flush the tank and supply lines before they can refuel them. The process is chargeable, with no exceptions.
