Do I have to use sandpaper with the holes?

I bought sandpaper that does not have the holes and when I turned it on the sandpaper spun right off.
Asked by: Nemo
I guess you dont have to, but youll be eating/breathing massive amounts of dust if you chose not to

Can I use this on walls?

I am prepping my bedroom for painting and I had to patch several holes (I'd say 30 or so) that the previous owners left behind. I wanted to be able to sand it QUICKLY so I am curious if I can use a tool like this or if I need to use a regular hand sander or a pole sander.
Asked by: Carrie
Yes, you can use it for drywall. Be ready for a lot of dust flying around. If you have some drywall project it will be better to use drywall sander that can be rented from Home Depot or you can buy one from Home Depot! I am home improvement contractor. So, I rented drywall sander from Home Depot several times. Finally, I've purchased one from Home Depot for ~$180 (brand name WEN).

What's the difference between this and the similar ROS20VSK?

Looks like it's the same product - just with a kit but it doesn't detail what's in the kit.
Asked by: JasonD
One comes with plastic case and this one comes with a carrying bag. In my opinion the bad is better because you can store more sandpaper in it. Otherwise, these two are the same great little sanders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sander Very happy with my new purchase. Did a lot of homework/research on various makers and models before deciding on this unit. Just as if not more powerful than my previous Dewalt ROS with a MUCH better dust collection system. Using 60-80 grit paper it collects nearly 90-95%. Higher grits 150-220 I would say it collects 60-70%. Still much better than the Dewalt ROS with the dust bag collector. Operation is very smooth at all speeds. Startup and stop are very smooth as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precision Random Orbital Sander! I've used electric and air powered Sanders for thousands of hours but this is the 1st one I would consider to be a precision instrument. It very easy to control even on 1/2" edges. I noticed Very little hand or arm fatigue. This is the perfect tool for beginners and professional's a like. The dust collection canister is large but I found it easy to maneuver in cabinets and drawers. It doesn't collect All of the dust, but it does a better job than any other Sander I've used. The filter material appears to paper but has held together very well while being tapped on, brushed through, and vacuumed cleaned. The bearing for the disk is buffered to prevent free wheeling which adds to its users friendliness and the motor is quieter than my previous Royobi. The ONLY complaint I have is I am unable to find a Bosch peel and stick backing pad. Quite, precise, doesn't get hot, efficient tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable quality I have had this sander for about 5 years or so. I have done a lot of sanding with this on weekend projects(cabinets, cutting boards, refinishing, etc.). Always does the job, always feels like there is enough power, fits in the hand nicely at many different angle and sucks up the dust pretty darn well. My only complaint is that the filter box is hard to remove (though has become easier over time).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good dust collection This sander works great when connected to an external vac. At first I thought it was not doing as well as my previous ROS on hardwood because there was no sanding dust present on the surface. Then I realized it was all being cleared through the holes in the sanding pad. Even when my previous ROS was connected to the vac, there was always dust on the surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sander Got sander 8 months ago and have used it on everything. Has performed great actually don't mind sanding anymore. It's comfortable to use on large projects and is handy enough to grab for small quick jobs. Could not be happier this is another great Bosch product! The only improvement I would have is I should have spent the couple extra for the hard case

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Terrific Product Great sander. I'm removing a junk product called Restore it from our deck, and this sander is exactly what I need to get down to bare wood. Easy to use and most importantly gets the job done. Only drawback...that damned dust collector isn't the easiest thing to open, empty and shut. But I can live with that. Highly recommend the sander!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from History of Bosch line of goods determined my decision to purchase. Tool was used to refinish outdoor teak furniture. Light weight, size and simplicity (not interested in a lot of bells and whistles) assisted in efficiently doing job. Only issue was locating the appropriate sanding discs with holes that matched the tool.
