1/3 Corded Sheet Finishing Sander is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makita BO3710 1/3 SHEET FINISHING SANDER Made my old one seem like a jack hammer, it was in the dumpster at the end of the day. Wanted a orbital half sheet but this one works great so far. I can sand edges and corners that were almost never able to do with the old jack hammer, with out tearing the paper and not getting the finish you wanted. Much quieter than the old beast. Picks up some of the dust while sanding, witch is a plus, have not tried with a vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Just sanded a deck and benches prior t re-staining and it worked great. I was outside, so didn't use the dust catcher so can't comment on it. Unit has enough power to sand down small irregularities, but I wouldn't use it for any heavy shaping. Fairly quiet compared to others I've used - I was o,k, without ear covers. A quality product that I would purchase again.

This Makita 1/3 sheet sander DOES NOT have a "built-in vacuum adaptor", contrary to the claim in the description. I have reported this discrepancy to Makita, maybe they will correct their advertising description, maybe Home Depot also will. Makita does not offer a separate vacuum adapter for this unit. Otherwise, the sander is alright, but if it is important to you to attach your vacuum hose to the sander, do not buy it. Ridgid palm sander R2500 DOES HAVE a built-in vacuum adapter. When you unscrew the cloth dust bag, connectors are revealed for two sizes of vacuum hoses. Very nice feature. However, I do not recommend this Ridgid, because mine has failed repeatedly. Even though it has unlimited repair guarantee, I have given up on it after four repairs, and it failed again. I am going to attempt to adapt the Ridgid dust bag, with hose adapters, to my new Makita. It will take some clever re-engineering, or a little Duct Tape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mikita Sander for the Price.. The first thing I noticed was how comfortable it was in my hand. This was important because sometimes I will sand for hours at a time. The next thing that I really liked was that the on and off switch was in the handle facing down which made it easy to turn off and on as well as control various speeds as I went along. Other sanders that I used made you push a button located in the front or side of the sander which wasn't so easy to do during certain tasks. Finally, the most impressive thing for me is how quiet it is when you are working and how much material it removes. In my opinion this is a fantastic sander well worth the price I paid for it..

Have had the sander a few weeks, and it works great. Reasonable amount of power for what I need, not too large, comfortable to hold, not too loud. The dust port is only 3/4 inch OD, so an adaptor is required to connect to a vacuum. The other nice addition that comes with the sander, is the punch plate for the sand paper. No need to buy pre-punched paper, just use what you have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What The Doctor Ordered! Works very well, low vibration (sanders will always have vibration though - it's what they do), more quiet than my previous low-budget sander. Glad I purchased.
