Direct-drive, random orbit action. Welded, unitized frame. Includes 1 each, part number FCS16-1100, 4” x 6” straight blade and 1 each part number FCS16-1300, 3” x 10” straight blade.

UPDATE – we have rolled out this new website, but are working to get other details including pricing added to our site. In the mean time we welcome all phone calls for pricing. As of this writing we have this model in our physical stock and available for same day shipping for orders by Noon to avoid many of our online competitors delays and dependence on shipping from a backordered mfg (we can always ship this path like they do at the lower price also).
