Return Policy

The new SuperMax 16-32 Drum Sander features a patented ''Quick Adjustment Lever'' that raises the drum through its entire 0'' to 3'' height range with an easy pull of the lever. The traditional adjustment wheel still allows fine adjustments, but there is no need to repetitively wind the wheel for larger adjustments. In addition, the patented ''Fast Lever'' permits rapid adjustments for wide and narrow stock. The Turbo Vented dust port uses impeller-like fins to improve dust collection by up to 15%, and a rear-mounted conveyor motor pulls stock through, instead of pushing, to improve conveyor tracking. The 16-32 features a built-in DRO that is paired with SuperMax IntelliSand Technology for easy setup and even sanding without burning or overloading the motor. The SuperMax 16-32 churns out flat, smooth surfaces with unwavering consistency, giving you the benefits of a wide belt sander at a price that won't break the bank. It offers 16'' of sanding width in a single pass and 32'' in a double pass. The 16-32 Drum Sander comes standard with an open stand, and the drum is pre-wrapped with 80-grit sandpaper.


  • Quick adjust lever for fast height adjustment—just pull the lever to go from 0'' to 3''
  • Built-in digital readout for precision and ease of setup
  • IntelliSand™ Technology automatically adjusts conveyor speed based on load, preventing gouging, damaging or burning of stock, providing consistent finish even with varying grain pattern and density, and greatly increasing abrasive planing and dimensioning speed
  • Single alignment point—just one nut aligns the conveyor parallel to the sanding head
  • Indexed conveyor alignment for wide stock
  • Extra-wide conveyor properly supports stock over 16'' wide
  • Thrust bearing eliminates backlash in height adjustment
  • Extra wide space for easy access to abrasive fastening system
  • Self-cooling drum prevents overheating and extends abrasive life
  • Tension rollers are adjustable for height and hold down pressure to help prevent snipe
  • Optional folding indeed/outfeed tables available for additional support (#55450, sold separately)
