    Default Rokamat gecko sander


    Anyone any experience of this sander? Aside from looking like a ghost buster it seems to be a decent piece of kit.

    I reckon the head is a nice shape for getting into all those internal corners. Def dont like the ghostbusters pack, who knows though, maybe its compatible with other vacuums?

    I'm sure a member suggested a backpack idea he had for a sander a few months back. I'm also sure we all laughed at him though! Its a nice machine, any word on price?

    Amazon.com has the Rokamat Gecko in stock for $1695 with free shipping. It costs more than any other drywall sander for a reason: superior results that save so much touch up time it pays for itself in saved labor after a few uses. It sands right into the edges so you only need to touch up the inside corners. If you have any questions, please call Rokamat USA at (646) 450-4568 or post a message here.

    Sincerely,
    Rokamat USA

    Hey Rokamat welcome to the forum. Its good to get the manufacturers involved, then we can give you pelters when we get problems on site!
    Joking aside, I'm sure the fellas on here will keep ya busy with questions about the Gecko
