Festool USA and Festool Canada have announced plans to introduce two 250 watt orbital sanders: the DTS 400 REQ and the RTS 400 REQ.

At 2.5 lbs, the DTS 400 REQ and RTS 400 REQ are compact and lightweight and feature a 25% increase in power over previous models as well as Festool’s MMC electronics, according to the company. Other new features include a pad protector designed for minimizing pad damage and protecting adjacent surfaces, a rubberized over-grip, a bayonet-style dust port connection and an optional, re-usable Longlife Filter Bag with quick release.

DTS 400 REQ and RTS 400 REQ are designed for one-handed use for fine finishing and have step-less variable speed from 6,000 to 12,000 RPM with a sanding stroke of 2mm.
