Affordable and excellent finishing! Only grip is the dust collector is tricky to put back on.

I did my research online and decided on this Bosch. Very happy with it, collects the dust nicely and gives excellent results. Highly recommend this sander.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Richard A very good product,
Had to Finally replace my old Porter Cable orbital sander. Researched and found the Bosch was rated well. Got it and what a treat.
I did some poly sanding initially and the filter worked exceptionally, better than I even envisioned, it began smoking as the poly fibers got hot. This filter grabbed a lot of the dust.
Then when sanding it floats like a butterfly and indeed does the job. I had no idea new technology provided such a smooth riding sander.

The sander works well, is much quieter than the Porter Cable RO sander it replaced. The dust collector is a bit tricky to remove and the cover is awkward to take off but it does collect the majority of the sanding dust very well. Seems to do a great job in sanding of an Oak board with little or no sanding marks that I could see, feels good in the hand, even seems lighter than the old P/C I had. Just buy it already!

I bought this to replace my skill palm sander and what a difference! At first I didn't think it was doing anything because there was so little sawdust, until I realized the dust collector was working so well.
This thing is awesome and well worth the money, a job that would have taken over an hour with my skill sander can be done with this is 15 minutes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Blackbeard Nice Tool for the money
The sander is comfortable to operate without causing vibration fatigue in the wrist. The tool gives a nice finish without swirls if you use the proper grit sanding paper. I have also used this sander to buff a wooden mirror frame made of cherry hardwood and the tool produced a nice smooth finish. I would have given the score a 5 but the attachment supplied to hook up a vacuum cleaner needs to be improved to better secure the vacuum hose to the sander. It keeps falling out. I had to tape the hose in place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mikewisc Easy on the hands, tough on the job
This Bosch orbital sander is a pleasure to use. It has very good ergonomic design. Vibration seems minimal, and operation is very smooth. You hardly need to exert pressure downwards. In fact, too much pressure and it will bog down. It is designed to work best while lightly gliding over the surface. The rubber covering on the handle further minimizes vibration. The filter case is small, and therefore must be cleaned frequently. However, it is literally a "snap" to detach and re-attach. The filter can also be removed in favor of direct attachment to a shop vac. This option is best for long work periods.

Another good product from Bosch. I have 2 Bosch palm sanders and this fits right in as another toll in my sanding arsenal.
