Grizzly G1079R 16 inch 2 HP Drum Sander with Rubber Conveyor

The G1079R 16″ Drum Sander is the machine to run all of your woodworking stock up to 15-3/8″ wide, 3-1/2″ thick and a minimum length of 9″ long.

This machine features dual 6″ aluminum sanding drums allowing you to sand two different grits at the same time.

The infeed (front) drum uses your coarse grit sandpaper for thickness sanding.

The outfeed (rear) drum uses your finer grit sandpaper for finish sanding. This setup more than doubles your efficiency compared to a single drum sander!

The G1079R features a high output 2 HP TEFC drum motor and a 1/4 HP single phase feed motor that are both capable of turning at 3450 RPM.

Combined with 2100 surface feet of drum sanding and a feed at a rate of 11FPM, you’ll be looking for reasons to sand anything.
