Answer: 
The case is similar to other Bosch plastic cases...lightweight and decent quality. I purchased this product at homedepot.com because I couldn't find it in the store with the plastic case.

Answer: 
The case is zippered canvas, with a couple of inside pouches. Enough room for the sander and a couple of boxes of disks. I like the case, although some people prefer hard cases. I think that, if you tend to drop your tool cases a lot, or accidentally drop things on them, the hard case would be preferable. But for me, the canvas bag is just fine.

Answer: 
Yes, as a matter of fact, I loved that the case has an alignment tool built right in. You put your disk on the tool, Velcro side up and place the sander over it for a perfect alignment. There's room for a few accessories and disks inside. Beats the heck out of having it sit on the shelf in the garage right, and better than canvas by far.

Answer: 
This Sander comes with one disk, medium grit, I believe 120 or 150. It is not adequate to refinish a kitchen full of cabinets. Depending on the desired finish, I would purchase 10 pack of medium grit and a 10 pack of 220 grit for finish. If you have pads leftover your set for the next job!!

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. The Bosch ROS20VSK comes with one sanding disc. If you are refinishing the entire kitchen cabinets you will need more than one sanding disc. If you have further questions please feel free to contact our Customer Service Representatives at 1-877-267-2499.

Just moved into a new house and I have a lot of uneven surfaces throughout on the drywall. I'm looking for an affordable electric sander that can do the job. Can this sander be used on drywall with a fine grit sandpaper?

It worked for me, although I was impatient and started with 220, but switched to 120 and ended up using 80-grit. Highly recommend using the Shop Vac attachment, especially with drywall repair.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid but light Relatively light easy to use for Long periods. The dust catcher does a good job but it also has a vacuum hose attachment for a one and a half inch hose It lives up to all the reviews that I've read. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Pleased With I was researching ROsanders & decided on this one. It is everything I expected. Works well.. has a good attached dust container as well as a vacuum attachment... light weight .. hard carry case June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Meets my needs Like all of my Bosch tools, the quality is excellent and it meets my needs for weekend carpentry. I'm particularly impressed with the dust collection filter which is much better than my finish sander from another manufacturer. Bosch quality has been reliable for this and my other products (router, hammer drill, jig saw, and table saw). March 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Tool I used to make fun of folks carrying around Bosch power tools when I was working construction jobs; for us, it was always Makita. But after using this sander for several hours every day over the period of a week, I have to reconsider everything. -This sander is comfortable in the hand; I didn't experience even the smallest bit of fatigue in my hands ever. In fact, my back gave out first after spending hours in the same position. -I was wary of the dust filter; it appears to be pretty hokey, more of an afterthought than an integral part of the tool. Once again, I was wrong. While it is an extremely simple design, it is equally extremely effective! I pulled the box off the unit once an hour, snapped the black top off (the most difficult part of the process... you will need some hand strength) and knocked the two sides out against the inside of the trash can. Snap the top back on and push it back into the unit until it makes a noticeable snap-pop connection, and you're back in business. The tool comes with an adapter to hook a shop vac hose to this part of the tool in lieu of the filter box, but I have not used that feature; sanding is noisy enough without the screeching of a shop vac to accompany it. -The hook-and-loop sanding pad has been the source of failure for other sanders that I have previously used; typically, over time and when applying pressure against sharp spots of your project, the hooks on the pad begin to warp, melt, and break down until they no longer grip the loops of the sand paper backing. Then, you have a sander that won't hold on to the sand paper anymore and that renders the tool into a vibrating door stop. I have used this sander to sand not only a large, wide plank, but also to strip and prepare some reclaimed decorative table legs for new finish. There is absolutely ZERO indication of wear on the pad of this tool yet. I find the durability of this part of the tool to be impressive. -This sander comes with a hard case, molded to fit the tool perfectly as well as hold extra pads, manuals, and whatnot. I appreciate a hard case over a soft-sided bag; I only wish this case was compatible with Bosch's L-Boxx system, so that I could lock it together with the cases of all the other Bosch tools that I will soon be buying. This sander is the best sander I have ever personally used; it is less expensive than many other brands that have not lasted as long or were much less comfortable to use, and the vast majority of other sanders came as a tool-only, without any storage case or bag at all. The quality and value of this tool is unbeaten by any other. December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great sander and fits well in my small hands I was given this as a Christmas present from my husband and I literally danced when I opened it. It has gotten me through a lot of furniture rehab. The vibrations are significantly less than my last sander and my hands do not have a problem keeping a grip. November 19, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Issue with carrying case The carrying case has a "handy feature" which helps one to align the disks with the sander. It is not very helpful. June 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid sander I now have 2 of these sanders. I bought 1 for wood working projects several years ago after I saw good ratings for its performance. It met my expectations with good sanding performance and good dust capture when connected to a vacuum system. I had an older, off-brand sander I use for nasty jobs like sanding boat bottoms. That sander died and I had to put my Bosch into service. It performed well last year, but that sort of work fills the sander with dust and contaminants you can never get out. I was going to buy another off-brand sander, but the Bosch wasn't that much more expensive and now I have 2 - 1 for "clean" work and 1 for nasty work. May 15, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great results from a well-made tool I love this tool! It is well built and well designed. Feels very comfortable in the hands while using. Does not require much pressure at all (in fact, too much pressure actually makes it work less effectively). The dust collection is superb... I don't have to wear a mask. True, the dust box needs frequent cleaning, but it comes off with a simple grip and twist. The motor is powerful yet quiet. I sanded a small tool rack which I built with a 220 grit disk and the finish was superb. I own other Bosch tools and I'm sure I will continue to stick with this quality line. You pay somewhat more, but the quality is well worth it! July 16, 2013
