Answer: 
As long as you clean out the dust bag when it starts filling up, you can sand indefinitely. It's got a built in sort of cooling fan, if you will.

Answer: 
I am not sure what paneling you are talking about. I have used my sander for hours (4) with out stopping except to clean out the dust collection bag and blow it out with compressed air. Its a kinda of feel thing, you have to know when the sander is bogging down and that is just by feel. I gave mine a break by cleaning it out every 25 minutes. It depends on where you are using it and the grit of the paper Read More

Answer: 
This would be ideal for that. Just use the proper grit sandpaper for sanding drywall and keep the sander moving to avoid low spots. I also suggest wearing a mask or better, a decent respirator like the 3M ones they sell. I don't do anything in my wood shop without a respirator and shudder at the though of doing drywall without some type of breathing protection

Answer: 
I would recommend not using this to polish your car, The HD sells polishers and I would invest in doing that if you are going to polish your car quiet a bit. The sander may not get you the desired results you are looking for.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 88 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase! The sander is my little workhorse. Super easy to use. Changing sanding discs required little effort. The hook and loop discs stayed in place. Was worried about grip because I have small hands but was pleasantly surprised. I was able to find a comfortable grip and had no fatigue after a few long days of sanding. Cord length is good and dumping dust bag is simple. Very good control. Most importantly, the minimal swirl marks were gone with the next grit. After final sanding I spent less than two minutes on a once-over hand sand (and may not have been necessary!). A quality sander for a great price. December 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dewalt produces Excellent tools Excellent hand tool, have worn out several of these over the years. January 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I am very, very pleased with this sander I make custom wood plaques and was sick of my old B&D sander because the dust bag fell off if you looked at it funny. Since I recently installed a DIY dust collection system in my shop I chose this model for the dust port as well as the good reviews. It also uses the same sanding discs I already have gobs of. It is GREAT. For starters, it vibrates a whole lot less than my old B&D. It's also a bit quieter. I have yet to hook it up to my dust collection system because the dust bag works great. After about an hour of sanding oak it had plenty of room left for more dust. Speaking of the bag, another reviewer said the bag falls off easily. Perhaps things have changed since they reviewed their because the one I bought 12/2015 has a bag with a fitting on it that you push on the dust port then twist and lock it. It hasn't come off a single time. Also, when powered off it stops a LOT faster than my old B&D. That may not seem like a benefit to many but when I'm switching from tool to tool during sanding/finishing I apprecaite all the extra time i can get. My only complaint is the power switch, which has a rubber cover to keep dust out, could be a little bigger. Sometimes I find myself fiddling with it to push on the correct side but it's not really a big deal at all. December 22, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful Motor Very difficult to control. Motor is powerful and heavy. Changing sanding discs is a breeze November 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I am going to sand all the things! oh man. Where was I before this sander? Full of rough furniture and wood and unfinished business is where. This sucker is so easy to hold onto and easy to use that after doing your initial project that you probably bought this for you'll start wandering around what else you can re-finish - so far my stairs, 2 chairs, a shelf and a bench for me. What's on your list? November 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Orbit out of this world I purchased this sander based on need and other write-ups. I am building toys and "cubbies" for daycares and I needed a sander that would cut the amount of sanding time in half or less. My DeWalt finish sander was great for small area projects, but I needed something to cover alot of ground and without leaving scratches or patterns from sanding. I just finished a Doll House that had been discarded because of paint and magic markers colors all over the place. I disassembled the house and used the 5" DeWalt Random Orbital sander to finish each piece. I was amazed at how fast the paint and markers came off the wood. The wood is maple and ash and it cleaned up very nicely as you can see in the enclosed pictures. I did use the finish sander to get into the square corners but everything else was random orbital. There are many grits of sanding disks available so moving from rought to finish was very easy with the hook and eye system to hold the paper on the disk. You have to be careful because all brands with holes do not line up on the disk holes for the dust collection. It is enough power but not to much for the jobs I do. I think this is a perfect sander for a DIY'er. February 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Sander An amazing sander, minimal noise and vibration. very ergonomic grip. Had a Ryobi that didn't cut it, I after feeling the Dewalt sander in the store I knew I had to have it. The main thing this sander has over other sanders is how comfortable it is in the hand. Also it is 3 amps versus 2 which most cheaper sanders have it will last longer and take more abuse. I will recommend this to all my friends. October 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DeWalt Strikes Again Overall the sander is great. Only reason I am writing this review is due to a previous comment about the power switch. I have had the sander for years and recently am replacing it due to the power switch failure. Something is not working right with the sensor, it's not turning on/off when I switch it and it had been loosing power mid-sand. Not really a negative seems it has served it's purpose flawlessly for years! Worth the investment, don't waste your hard earned dollars on something cheaper! The price really is fair when you think about long-term investment!! August 22, 2015
