Same Machine, Brand New Look!
Powerful and refined is the best way to describe the Omega 8. This solid performer breaks the stereotype of traditional belt sanders (as finishing machines only), and cuts with aggression. As with all Galaxy sanders, the Omega 8 has been engineered with the optimum balance of drum pressure and drum speed to enhance its overall performance. Tracking adjustments are made quickly and externally, with minimal downtime using the patented belt tension mechanism.
Make any resanding job a profitable experience with this overachiever!
Galaxy Omega 8 Features
7.5 hp Motor
At the heart of all our floor sanders is a single phase, 7.5 hp motor, custom manufactured by Galaxy. This heavyweight exceeds the 4.5 hp industry average by over 66%! An optional 3-Phase 9.0 hp is available for industrial applications. *By loosening two release pins, the motor easily detaches for speed and ease in disassembly and one-man transportation. More power, more torque, perfectly balanced with drum speed and drum pressure provide a real performance advantage.

Optimum Weight Distribution
Galaxy floor sanders are known for their solid build and weight behind them. This design advantage ensures stability and gives the floor sanding professional an aggressive cut. Optimum weight distribution is critical to performance, as physics testifies. Galaxy machines are ideally balanced keeping the drum fixed on the floor, to deliver the best cut and sanding performance. With our drum pressure mechanism, you can control the depth of cut by simply pulling a lever. No external weights are required.
Belt Tension Mechanism
Galaxy machines have a self-aligning and externally adjustable belt tension mechanism that allows the operator to adjust belt tracking during machine operation. Minimal interruption required for belt tracking adjustments.
A swivel, dustless elbow coupled with double wiper seals provides you with a further dust control measure, eliminating dust leakage for reduced clean up time.
Ergonomically Designed Handles
Handles are positioned at the perfect height and distance apart for optimal control and comfort, helping to relieve back strain.
