The Laguna Tools 43″ 2RK (Roller + Combo head) wide belt sander is a perfect fit for woodworking shops of all sizes. The belt length is 75″ which is the same length as several larger machines. The longer belt means it will not only last longer due to more abrasive material it will also run cooler.
This machine is equipped with 1 ( 8”) roller and a second (4”) roller followed by a wide platen for fine finish. This allows you to use a rougher grit on first roller (8”) that will absorb most of the impact and do the dimensioning while the second roller (4”) with the Platen can have a finer grit. This will save time over having to run your production through the machine 2 times & change belt grit. Due to the large HP motor (25 HP) the machine is capable of dimensioning even wide boards. This is important for customers who do not own a thickness planer. When you use the machine to dimension your work only very aggressive paper 60 or 80 grit should be used. The heavy carpet feed belt is powered by a separate 2HP motor and the feed speed is adjustable from 12 to 60 fpm.
