Questions & Answers

Corded or Cordless?

The description says cordless, but the picture shows corded. The specs say corded in one place and cordless in another. Who ever did this should be reprimanded and possibly demoted, if there's anything lower, which there's probably not because you had an unpaid intern do it.
Asked by: SandyCofax
This model is 3 amp corded.

Does the variable speed really come in useful for the extra cost?

Asked by: Woodchuck49
Yes, when you have a aggressive sandpaper like 60 and are taking finish off or rounding corners sometimes you need to be artful or you over sand and end up with a gouge or flat spot. Around details or molding a low speed is best, it will take you longer but less likely to cause damage unintended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YOU CAN GET THE VAC ATTACHMENT!!! To all of you 'pros" that are whining that DeWalt doesn't have a vac attachment for this tool, stop claiming to be a professional. If you can't look past your local big box store, you are not fit to be reviewing the tool. DeWalt now uses what it calls the "Air Lock" attachment system. The part number you need for this sander is DWV9000. I find it's available all over the place local + the internet. I just ordered mine, excited to get it and get some cleaner air. Now back to sanding my nursery furniture, she will be here in less than a month!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Orbital sander I like the sander. It sands well. Fits in my hand well and is easy to use. My only complaint is the ability to attach the sander to my Rigid vacuum. I have now spend over $50. on Home Depot and De Walt attachments so that it will fit my Rigid hose. No matter what I have bought, none of the attachments will help the sander to fit. Period! De Walt should be ashamed to have changed the dust port the way they did, then try to sell a "universal port adapter" that fits NO attachments. The old DeWalt sander had no issues to attach to my sander. Other than that it is a great sander.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Use to be 5 Star. Vacuum Adapter!! The design has a lot to desired. I only used Dewalt Sanders and I truely enjoy them, for me they are the best. This new collection/exhaust design has a MAJOR FLAW. You CANNOT connect to a vacuum. The old design you could with the proper attachment. I cannot find, anywhere, the attachment for the new design. So what are we to do Dewalt? Your engineer's didn't think that maybe a product that creates a lot of dust might want to be able to connect to a vacuum? Your old design had that in mind and it preformed perfectly. Come on Dewalt!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a long lasting tool This is a 4-6 month sander at best. The problem lies with the hook and loop design. As mentioned by others, the heat, stress and fatigue will wear out the hooks on the sander. When it's new it's awesome but use it everyday and you won't hit 6 months without that part failing. I ended up buying a second one to find out-they're all the same!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No dust port attachment!! I do a lot of cabinet work so a hand sander is a big part of preparation for finishing. I had a single speed Dewalt and used it for years until it quit. One drawback on my older Dewalt was the Vacuum dust attachment was weak. It worked but would become detached. I was given this as a replacement for that sander. Key failure here is the dust port attachment. That cloth boot is useful if you only have a small sanding to do but is too little for bigger jobs. I used it w the cloth boot and within 3 minutes dust is all blowing out from the side area. I tried to attach it to my dust extraction system and the port is not designed to attach a hose therefore it will not hold. This is headed back to HD for a refund. It sands fine which is the sad part. If Dewalt had any common sense they would have molded the dust port a little different and this would allow a vacuum to attach.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sanding the day away! I picked up this random orbit sander to sand our new hardwood porch. DeWalt tools are definitely more expensive, but I'm a believer in "you get what you pay for"... (works out most of the time). I also like that DeWalt has a 90 day guarantee and standard 3 year warranty on their products. Anyway, to prep the porch for staining, I used this sander to remove the glaze of the new red meranti boards (purchased at HD btw). It did a great job and didn't leave any swirls in the wood. It was comfortable in my big hands and the dust collection was as good as can be expected from a palm style sander. The hook and loop made it easy to change the 8 hole pads and I like the option of having a variable speed dial even though I haven't had a project that requires it. Rubber over the switch keeps the sawdust out, but most sanders have that these days. I'm hoping to hook this up to a two stage shop vac so I can use it inside, so I like that it has that option. This tool is competitively priced for a variable speed orbit sander in its class. Regarding performance, it wasn't anything spectacular. Don't get me wrong, it did a great job; however, there was no noticeable difference in performance verses the old $30 Porter Cable orbit sander it replaced (it has a frayed cord and is missing the dust bag). Since it's Dewalt though, I suspect it will outlast my Porter Cable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Somewhat Dissappointed I just purchased this and got it out thought I would give it a test run. Was a little disappointed. I had an old Dewalt single speed orbital and this one did not take the material off nearly as fast. I was using 80 grit paper at the highest speed and took nearly twice as long the get the material to the point where the other got it. I got this one because I wanted the option to slow the speed down for certain types of material but still expected it work like the other one did.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Turns On and Off By Itself Used the sander for about 2 hours and now it turns on and off by itself. Perhaps I bought a defective unit. Love the feel and performance compared to my Ryobi. I think I am going to trade it in for a Bosch. They seem to have better reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best So pleased with this purchase, had to write a review. This is the most comfortable palm sander I've ever used. After hours of work, no numbness in my fingers from vibration. The surface is left nicely smooth, and no matter what you start with the sander floats across the surface, No issues at all with sanding discs coming loose; I used Diablo and was very happy. When you compare prices, the DeWalt is only a few $$ more; why not go with one of the leaders? Very happy with this purchase, would definitely buy again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from There's no vacuum attachment adapter, despite what the description and owners manual says. As a professional tradesman with over 30 years of experience, I often choose Dewalt power tools for their design and durability. However, this orbital sander has been a big disappointment due to the design of the exhaust port which does not allow for the attachment of a standard 1-1/4" vacuum hose connector. If like me, you find yourself sanding for extended periods, you know that the little dust boot supplied just doesn't cut it. You need a vacuum attached to handle the large amount of dust produced. Both the product description and the owners manual (which I had to source on-line since it was missing from the sealed box) make reference to vacuum connection. But after researching the DeWalt website, I couldn't find an adapter for this sander. Called Dewalt customer service and they couldn't find one either, so they gave me the number to my local Dewalt factory authorized service center. They couldn't find one in their database, so they called the east coast headquarters, and they couldn't find one. Apparently, it doesn't exist. I suspect there may be one forthcoming, but not yet available. Also, judging by the wording in the documentation and the unique design of the exhaust port, I wouldn't be at all surprised if it turns out that this sander has been designed to only work with the Dewalt Dust Extractor vacuum system. Sorry Dewalt, but I already own a perfectly good shop vac. I'm returning this sander for one that wasn't designed to manipulate me into buying a DeWalt vac. - I'm just speculating about that. But bottom line is that I can't hook up my vacuum to this sander, so it's going back.
