The Sandivac SV25 floor sanding machine has an international reputation as the most efficient and reliable floor sander in its price range. It is powered by a heavy-duty 4 pole electric motor to offer the performance and strength required to satisfy the rigorous demands of floor sanding applications. The patented off-set motor ensures that starting torque is counterbalanced and therefore provides the operator with an easy-to-use, well-balanced machine that can be used for prolonged periods without operator fatigue. Switch the vacuum motor off and the Sandivac SV25 becomes a scrubber or stripper. The floating skirt assembly also traps dust, eliminating the need for secondary vacuuming.
