Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leaves nice finish I just purchased one of these and am happy with the finish it leaves using fine grit sandpaper. Just make sure you don't apply too much pressure or you get the machine swirl marks. The sandpaper is very easy to clamp on compared to some other brands and the dust collection bag works well to reduce airborne particles. November 30, 2008
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really A Great Sander Very Effective The Tool Is Being Used To Refinish Wood Work In 90 Year Old Home And It Work's Very Well September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smooth, powerful and super quiet. I've been a wood worker for over 30 yrs and I've used lots of electric sanders. Most are so noisy that I had to resort to ear plugs to deal with them, and also after a long sanding session, my hand would tingle from the vibration that the sander put out. Not with this sander. It's super quiet. It's large enough to dampen the vibration to the hand and also small enough to get the corners into smaller spaces. It's a bit heavy for it's size, but that's a good thing when it comes to sanders, less downward push from the operator. The larger 1/3 sheet size is a plus as well. Lastly, it's a Makita, need I say more. All my Makita tools have been solid performers and have held up very very well. Get this sander and you will not regret it. July 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality for price more quiet and smoother to operate than expected. I really like the size,does a nicer job than the 1/4 sheet sander I have, and not near as heavy as my 1/2 sheet sander. If I try to use my 1/4 sheet on too large of a piece of wood, it sometimes leaves faint swirl marks, but the 1/3 sheet Makita does not. I have other Makita tools, and have had good luck with all of them. February 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Good Although I could not find a 1/3 sheet sander at any Home Depot or even Lowes locally, I am happy that I found the Makita on line at Home Depot. I wore out one from "somewhere" on a garage door project and knew I wanted something better. The Makita was much quieter, held the sand paper in place better, was more comfortable to use and, thanks to the dust bag, created less of a mess! I especially liked that the bag only needed emptying and did not require a filter change/purchase. At roughly $60, it is a great, great value. Also, even though Home Depot's site said it would take a week or so to get to me, I received it in 2 days - You might have a different experience of course. October 30, 2013
