Triton TGEOS Geared Eccentric 6'' Orbital Sander

The Triton TGEOS is a powerful 500W dual-mode sander with a 6'' diameter backing pad. With variable speed and electronic speed maintenance under load, the motor won't bog down under pressure, and you can fine tune the speed to suit the task. In addition, two modes let you quickly select from free-run or fixed orbit mode, for easy control over material removal and surface finish. The pad braking system brings the spinning pad to a halt, preventing accidental swirls or nicks. The swivelling auxiliary handle and vibration-reducing rubber over-molded grips increase user comfort and safety. Vacuum dust extraction port for effective dust removal. Includes six sanding discs and two spare carbon brushes.


Features:
  • Hook and loop pad
  • Powerful 500W motor provides ample power for the most demanding sanding and polishing tasks
  • Dual orbit sanding action with free-run mode for fine sanding, and geared fixed orbit mode for fast material removal and buffing
  • Vacuum dust extraction port for increased operator safety and clean work areas
  • Constant speed under load ensures maximum control at all times

Excellent sander
This is one tough, powerful sander. I had a project using 2X4s that needed to be smoothed for painting and with it's two settings, I was able to make short work of the job. Put on a finer grit, change the setting, and it sands to a smooth no swirl finish.
Saves a lot of sanding time.

Performs excellent. Worthy of five stars except the variable speed control vibrates to lower speeds when in use. I had to put a piece of tape over it to keep it on high.

Not so sure I would recommend this sander.
Front handle doesn't move far enough out of the way for doing stairs. In gear mode alot of pressure needs to be applied to settle the machine down, vibration is a big issue.

Buy the Bosch
Bought this at Rockler over a year ago. First time I used it, the pad tore itself apart. I ordered a replacement and installed it. Second time I used it, same thing. However, for the past few months the orbital pads have been out of stock, so this tool has become useless. I was using this for heavy sanding, but the salesman at Rockler said this was THE ONE for what I was doing. When it did work, it was a beast. Unfortunately it breaks every time you put it under any real load.

Great sander, only drawback is you will have to order disc's for it as box and hardware stores don't carry 8 hole/6" disc. Would buy it again.

I have a fairly full compliment of Triton Tools, based on reputation and personal experience-thought this sander would be a very useful addition

I think this was last year's Christmas gift or bithday gift. Not sure

It looks like a strong orbital sander. I am not happy with other manufacturers.
Michael S on Jul 20, 2016
Looking for a "serious" sander and the Triton really fills the bill very very well. It is all it is advertised as.

What are the eccentric offset, orbit diameters, and orbit radii? What are the vibration levels?

compared to air sander, is it as good?

What is the size of the vacuum dust extraction port?
phillip F on Jun 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 1-1/4" OD and 1" ID
how does it compare to a Rigid 6"?
Art J on Sep 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Art,
I have never used a Rigid 6" orbital sander. However, I have a Dewalt 6" orbital sander and I have also owned a Black & Decker 6" orbital sander and several other non- brand name sanders. How do these sanders compare to the Triton? The Triton is a far superior, heavy duty orbital and geared sander which can be used for heavy removal as well as finish sanding. I have primarily used the Triton on 4x4 Farmhouse table tops which are made from #2 green Douglas fir. The boards are 2"x12"X 6' with bread board ends. The Triton cleans them up nicely! It also is good for finish sanding with 150, 180 or 220 grit 6" sanding discs. The Triton has a vacuum port which I connect my shop vacuum to for dust extraction. The Triron has a regular mode and a geared mode of operation. The geared mode is for heavy removal. It also has adjustable speed control. The only thing that could be a problem for you with the Triton is that it is a large sander and heavier than a small orbital disc sander. However, it has a large adjustable handle to ease the operation and help keep it under your control. It also costs more than twice as much as a good 6" orbital sander. I have enjoyed using it and know it will cut my sanding time down because it gets the job done.

Would this sander be suitable to use for sanding a wooden ceiling...ie how clumsy/heavy is it to use on ongoing basis above head height?
Sarah T on Nov 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Because of it's size and powerful rotating action, this is a good sander for aggressive material removal but it is also somewhat hard to control specially for doing a ceiling, I'd recommend and regular 5" orbital sander such as the dewalt or the festool which would be much easier to control above head on a ceiling. The quality and grit of the sandpaper you use will also make a big difference on how fast the job will go.
Where can I buy a replacement pad for my Triton 6" orbital? I love this sander, it's a real work horse! But, the small metal collar on the back side of the pad, that has three pegs which grip the pad broke off into two pieces and now my pad goes haywire when it's turned on.
