sanding steps

I have just finished sanding and staing my living room and dining room using floor sander and a edger sander. Now it is time for the steps going upstairs. I tried one step with the edger, it semed to sand ok but will not know until I stain it. My question is, should I use the edger or vibrating or orbital sander? Any advise on sanding these steps would be great.

sanding steps

I've found a small palm sander works best on stair treads. They're always a pain though. Good luck, make sure you use tack cloths to get all of the dust out of the corners before sealing/staining. Good luck.

A palm or an osalating sander works great.
