Very nice unit

  • Excerpt: Have tried numerous orbital sanders for doing body work on project cars, and I've had two of these units, they last a long time and take a lot of abuse, and are easier to handle than any of the other orbitals I've tried for paint removal and color sanding.

Is the Newer Generation Necessary?

Willy Chambers, Amazon
22 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought the Makita BO6030 6-inch RO sander to augment my Porter-Cable 5-inch RO sander, mostly for table tops and isolated floor-refinishing purposes. That being said, I have also found it useful for veneered plywood cabinet panels, making short work of what the smaller P-C sander is capable of.

Very good Sander

  • Summary: Well I had a Ridgid random sander for about 9 years. It is now broken and if you read all the review for the Ridgid, they are right. It is noisy, for the dust it is so, so, for the performance, was ok before the bearing seize.

Great orbital sander

  • Summary: This sander replaces a 20-year-old 1/2 sheet Craftsman sander. I am pleased with it. It is easy to handle. Does not make swirl marks. Does not do inside corners of drawers or chest.The dust collection is adequate but not great. I would recommend it for reliablity.

Makita Bo6030 Random Orbit Variable Speed Sander

Bitterman, Amazon
5 September 2013
  • Summary: Solid performance. My standard issue for years. Even though it has dust holes for its own sanding disks, I use Mirka as they are readily available. I don't know whether the dust holes are better if you use the makita sand disk brand or others, I usually connect the sander to my vacuum and go with...
