Topic tags/keywords: sander drum sander brush sander supermax

Hey guys and gals, I was looking at the Supermax drum sanders with the Brush heads and was hoping to hear some feedback from anyone who has used one. Any ideas as to how long the brush heads work before needing replaced? I know you can buy replacement strips but they are kind of spendy so I’m hoping to get quite a few board feet out of a set. Also, do they tend to hold their shape pretty well even though they are constantly being pushed in one direction? Any thoughts on the performance, longevity, and durability of these sanding brush strips would be much appreciated.

Note: I’m asking specifically about the brush head and strips, not the drum sander. I already use a dual drum sander regularly so I’m good in that department :) thanks in advance guys!

I have been looking at the 19-38 drum sander myself. Can you educate me on the differences between the Supermax and Performax sanders. And maybe the advantages of a dual or brush over a single drum?

It would be appreciated. I do know a guy that has had three of them over the last 20+ years and he loves them. His second one went up in a fire and the third one is huge.

The new variable speed belt feed is really nice on the new units.

As soon as I am in my new shop, I am going to add one of these machines.

P.S. He said he found the best price for sanding drums at Klingspor’s.
