If the goal is to simply scuff the surface, the quickest and most economical way to sand it will probably be a hand held belt sander with a 100 to 150 grit belt. It would probably take less than a couple of minutes per 18’ board, not counting time to move boards around as you proceed but even that is less work than feeding them through a drum sander. It is usually faster to take the tool to the work rather than the work to the tool. You can sand them where they are stacked, apply a coat of stain and move them aside to dry. If you’ve got a helper, it will probably take less than an afternoon.
