Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use this sander for wet sanding?

Asked by: Anonymous
NO, it is an electric tool. For wet sanding use an air tool or by hand

What is the difference between this tool, the ROS20VSK, and the ROS20VSC?

Specifically, will the accessories like the different pads fit?
Asked by: ASquash
I looked this up before I purchased this sander--the sander is the same for both, pretty sure the only difference is the "K" comes with a hard plastic case. The only accessory with the K is the vac adapter; I think this also comes with the "C". (If you want to check this, I got my info from the Bosch web site.)

Can I use this sander on drywall?

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?
Asked by: dhEN54
Not something I would recommend for drywall. Perfect for wood. Drywall is best sanded with a pole.

Would this be considered a palm sander?

I am buying as a gift for my husband who wants a palm sander for wood working projects. How does the ROS20VSK compare to the 3727DEVS from a handling perspective? The 3727DEVS seems smaller and lighter.
Asked by: DLSD
The Bosch ROS20VSK was designed as a Palm sander, it is lightweight (3.5 lbs). The 3727DEVS was not designed as a palm sander and weighs about 2 pounds more (5.25 lbs). If you are looking for a palm sander we would recommend the ROS20VSK.

What is the decibel rating on this? I'm trying to find the quietest orbital sander.

Asked by: Doyle

Would this be the right type of sander to sand laminate furniture for priming and painting?

Asked by: PRGalLinda
Thank you for your question. This sander would be an excellent choice for your application. The ROS20 palm sander has a compact design and the random orbit sanding pattern ensures that no single part of the abrasive material travels the same path twice. Because of this unique random sanding action, the tool does not leave swirl marks, and is not sensitive to the direction of the wood grain.

2.5 Amp Corded Electric 5 in. Variable Speed Random Orbital Sander/Polisher Kit with Carrying Hard Case is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 42.

The sander is light weight, easy to use, and seems to be well constructed. The dust collection system is well designed and works very well. I bought this unit to replace my similar sized Milwaukee sander that has issues with the dust collection system. Unfortunately that system has been discontinued, so it can't be replaced. On the positive side, the new Bosch sander does a much better job of collecting dust. It is also quieter, if that is a consideration. On the negative side, it is considerably less powerful and takes longer than the Milwaukee to sand a similar sized area. As a result, I would not recommend this sander if you need something to take down a lot of material. On the other hand, it does a great job of final light sanding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from filter bought this because of specs and price. has been a good sander, and the filter works very well, except the filter has become loose and vibrates off. plus....... when the paper filter gets full/dirty and needs replacing, you have to replace the entire unit, not just the paper part. not sure how expensive it is since i have just been banging the dust out of it. now that the filter falls off so easily i am looking to replace with a new sander, with just a bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than any sander I've ever owned. I used my old orbital sander for 30 years. When the switch went bad i bought the Bosch random orbital sander. It's so much better that I won't bother fixing the old one. The ROS20VSK makes short work of the rough sanding on raw wood and puts on a super smooth surface for finishing. Sandpaper is easy to change and the best part is that the built-in dust collector really works. There's virtually no dust in the air when I've finished sanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I got this as a christmas present from my wifeet and I love all of the feathers it has on it. The vacuum attachment option is awesome and I really like how it comes with a high quality filter for sanding clear coats/chemical epoxy etc.
