5 in. Variable Speed Disk Sander is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong sander Needed some more umph over my DEWALT orbital. This was just the trick to help remove 35 yr old grout and glue from under linoleum. Lots of power never heats up. Only gave 4 stars because the exhaust Port needs to be larger. Had trouble finding the right connection for a Shop-Vac

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for heavy surface removal This sander is easier to handle than my older belt sander, and with an aggressive sanding disk, removes material quickly. Great for step one in reusing old wood. The drill handle grip and side handle give you good control over the path of material removal.
