The new Husky air tool line is built to industrial standards for the professional user providing more power, less noise and longer life. This new Palm Sander features low weight housing with rubberized overmold for comfort. The isolated oil free motor design reduces vibration by up to 50% over conventional palm sanders, and allows use of the tool without lubrication. The internal silencing greatly reduces tool noise and the built-in regulator allows you to match the speed of the tool to the job. Designed for surface preparation and final finish sanding of metals, plastics, composites, fillers and glass fiber used on autos and recreational vehicles. The orbital action provides the smoothest swirl free finish possible; this design tool is favored for auto repair shops and high volume furniture/wood product manufacturers where the finest surface finishes are required.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by palm sander Very comfortable and steady grip. I am absolutely happy with this sander. I had the an older model which the handle was longer and needed to use both hands. Satisfied customer. January 27, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by At least it's not made in China Picked it up to for finish sanding on hard wood flooring. It advertises to operate 4 CFM @ 90psi. // I have a Dewalt 15gal compressor rated for 5 CFM @ 90 psi (actual) and the sander sucked up all the air. The compressor was running nonstop and operating pressure had dropped to 60psi. // it still worked, but was weak and didn't do that well after the pressure drop.. So, I don't know if it's the tool sucking up more than 4 CFM or my compressor not putting out what it should. Either way the tool is made in Taiwan and not China, but you might need a big compressor or high CFM rating for it to work properly.. November 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great air sander I bought this sander to do body work on my older project car. I have never gotten around to using it on that, but works great for sanding down wood and I have the 80 gallon husky compressor and it can run for quite some time with out turning on. Now even though it is rated at 4 cfm at 90 psi like all air tools it's rating does not account for non stop use overall the sander does a fine job and have not had any problems with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by performs as it should It's a good sander, I can't talk about how long it will last, I've just used it for a couple of days so far but it comes with a 2 year limited warranty. Orbit is 3/16 so it performs nicely as an all around sander. I was using it today with some 3M 80 grit PSA paper to shape body filler. It performed really well, not too aggressive, not too mild - made for quick work. The other thing is that it's not as air hungry as i was expecting. I have a 3HP 60 gallon compressor which is rated at 11CFM @90. I was expecting to have to wait every now and then for the compressor to catch up but to my surprise, it was a good match. I wouldn't want to use it with anything smaller unless it has 100% duty cycle. March 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great quality I was going to purchase a Snap On palm sander until I saw this in Home Depot. This sander is identical to the snap on and $200 cheaper. I use this sander in a body shop environment and it works flawlessly. August 19, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Needs more air than specified. As another reviewer said his 60-gallon compressor rated at 11CFM@90 psi was able to keep up. The problem is this tool claims in it's specifications to only require 4 CFM@90 psi. That's a monster difference, and indeed, my 5HP 30-gallon compressor is rated at 8.8CFM@90 psi and was constantly running to drive this tool. Home Depot isn't doing anyone any favors by underestimating the CFM requirements of the tools they sell. July 23, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Buyer Beware Bought this sander after reading the description on Home Depots on line site. The info on line said that "The isolated oil free motor design reduces vibration by up to 50% over conventional palm sanders, and allows use of the tool without lubrication." When I got it home and read the instructions they said to use a inline lubricator with the unit or put a few drops of air tool oil into the air inlet. Also if stored for an extended period of time (over night?) oil it before you put it away. So I called the help # in the instructions, was on the phone for about 15 minutes and the 2 people I talked to couldn't come up with a direct yes or no as to oil or not. I thought because of the price they had something going on here, but maybe not. Took it back the next day for a refund. If I'm going to use one that requires oil, I'll find one that's less expensive.
