  • Summary: I purchased this sander after reading heaps of reviews. If I'm being honest, my opinion was also swayed by the brand as everything my Dad owns from them is fantastic. So far it runs smooth as silk and has given me a nice finish on my bathroom ceiling, which is what I initially bought it for.

The best sander on the market

Kirk Rogers, Amazon
22 March 2015
  • Summary: The best sander on the market. I use it everyday, very comfortable to use, the pad does where out and it is cheaper than a Dewalt pad. I have Dewalt sanders too. Makita is much better on the hands.

This tool is great for sanding

Andrew "Andrew", Amazon
21 December 2014
  • Summary: This tool is great for sanding! I bought this for preparing the walls of my house for painting. The walls are made of solid concrete and brick. It would have taken me much more time with the traditional way. I tried it too with some wood and it's also perfect.

The optional vacuum hose is a huge improvement

R.L. Dioxin, Amazon
3 November 2014
  • Summary: I bought the exact same sander without the case. It's good, better than the competing sanders costing just a few dollars less. I returned two before settling on this one. All these sanders are messy; most of the duct that is supposed to be collected in the bag never makes it there.

Quality you can count on!

Roger "Rock Jeeper", Amazon
16 October 2014
  • Summary: First orbital sander I've ever owned so I can't compared it to other brands. So far it has worked so well I'm not sure why I did so long without one. I used it to sand several aluminum truck wheels and it did the job so fast!

can easily hold it with one hand and sands fast

fmcon, Amazon

  • Summary: lightweight, strong and small,can easily hold it with one hand and sands fast.It has a small dust port that is difficult to attach a vacuum hose to but it gives you more space to put your hand.Fein sells an inexpensive adapter that fits well.
