Thanks for joining in the discussion @kiwicooldaddy. I was just referring to the perimetre of the deck itself as the floor sander can't get right to the end due to our cedar battens (railing). No need to use the orbital on each board - that would take a very long time!

Yes started sanding our deck back as was10 years since done properly done with a belt sander as not a huge area but as U said Jason water blasting and cleaning dies nothing like a good sanding all work it
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @belinda71. It's fantastic to have you join us, and many thanks for contributing to the conversation.
I trust our members would be interested in seeing some images of your rejuvenated deck and hearing more about how you restored it. What type of timber are your decking boards and did you oil and stain them after the sanding process?
We look forward to hearing all about your projects and plans around the house and garden and would encourage you to let us know if you ever need assistance with them or have something to share. You'll find loads of inspiration for your projects within the community as our clever and creative members contribute their ideas here every day.
