We offer the highly popular HT8 Drum Floor Sander  for hire – a well proven machine that has been successfully developed and improved over at least 27 years of operation! Suitable for the do-it-yourself user as well as the contractor and professional the HT8 is a versatile, powerful floor sander suitable for all types of jobs providing the range of performance, control and feel necessary to sand floors to the perfect finish.


The HT8 is a high performance 200mm (8”) drum floor sander that will level and sand all types of wooden floors, including parquet to a fine score free finish, suitable for overcoating with today’s modern waterborne lacquers and oils. The HT8 can also be used on a wide range of other surfaces including some types of decking, fibre board, cork and composition floors.

A powerful four brush motor drives a dynamically balanced sanding drum which is covered in a unique drum rubber. Completely self contained with a high efficiency dust pickup, the HT8 breaks down into three simple component parts for easy transport. The high impact ABS injection moulded side guards and drum guard will not scar or scuff walls and also protect the HT8 during transport.

The unique drum rubber resists abrasion and damaged caused by exposed nails while providing the feel and touch needed to sand a fine, score free finish.

The reversible clamp bar makes it easy for the hirer to fit abrasives, quickly and accurately. The clamp bar is a dropped forge design that will not bend or distort over time ( unless through misuse) ensuring that the abrasive paper is clamped securely in place at all times. The HT8’s unique lifting fin assembly lifts the clamp bar clear of the drum making it a simple, two handed job to remove and fit abrasives.

The HT8 motor is a high speed, universal continuous heavy duty, self cooling four brush design. It will not stall or slow down under load when sanding with coarse grit abrasives, removing old surface finishes, deposits of wax or dirt. This high performance ensures a fast, consistent production rate making it easy for the hirer to get a regular and uniform finish across the whole floor area and throughout the complete range of abrasive grits.

The design of the motor, as used in all our floor sanders, means the motor provides varying levels of power depending on load – ideal for floor sanding. The HT8 motor will deliver up to 4.5hp, depending on load, yet can be powered through any standard domestic supply without nuisance tripping or blowing fuses.
