Mirka DEROS / Electric sander


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Mirka saw a clear market need for a small, light, ergonomic electric sander. Excellent ergonomic design was top priority to ensure comfortably use for long periods. The grip is more controlled and relaxed thanks to extra space for the fingers. The unique symmetrical design makes it extremely well-balanced and just as comfortable in both hands. The curved handle, creates a stylish look and the impression of a high-quality professional tool. The innovative design of the brushless motor, allows it to be kept exceptionally compact and light. Mirka Deros is a significant improvement compared to competitors in the same market segment.
