Festool LEX 2 185/7 Features

When bigger is better

When it comes to large surface sanding, bigger is better. The LEX 2 185/7 is big all over; big pad, big stroke, big power, and big on longevity. The compressed air family of sanders are our longest lasting sanders with vane motors and few wear parts. At the end of the day, that adds up to a lot of dust. Thankfully, the CT 33 dust extractor (with the Festool-designed compressed air tool system), the Jetstream pad, and the IAS 2 hose can capture the dust and contain it.

Dead-Man Switch

The LEX 2 sanders are equipped with a dead-man switch for effortless operation and positive control.

IAS 2 Connection

3-in-1 hose design; supplies air, extracts dust, and provides an exhaust all through one hose.

Large Stroke

At 9/32" (7.0 mm) the sanding stroke of the LEX 2 185/7 is ideal for rapid stock removal and intermediate fine sanding.


Formed to fit your hand with rubberized top grip cap and unobtrusive dead-man switch.

Stroke Designation
