Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to handle, awesome performance This sander does an awesome job and it is very easy to work with. The handle size is not as bulky as other sanders making it much easier to maneuver! January 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent tool for a beginner First - I'm a girl. Second - I am a complete beginner. My past experiences with sanding has been with sanding sponge/blocks. This is one of the best tools I have ever purchased. Extremely easy to use and load with sand paper. Light weight - used easily on a vertical surface. Fast! Excellent value - delivered to my door for free. I only need this for small sanding projects like furniture/vanity refinishing for painting and a wall backsplash area for prep for tile. Worked beautifully! March 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Hand Sander for the $ I love this sander! It had been over 20 years since using a hand sander in high school wood shop class. They have definitely improved since then. Seems to orbit at a higher RPM and is very powerful for its size. Loading the paper is literally a snap. Dust collection bag helps too. It is worth waiting for online delivery since you essentially get the free case. October 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Returned the Rigid after trying this Makita My Porter Cable sander gave up after 19 years and I couldn't get parts. The salesman at HD sold me on the Rigid because of their lifetime warranty however, I wasn't happy with the results. Not knowing if it was the machine or the sandpaper, I ordered this Makita and conducted a side-by-side comparison. The Makita won hands down because [#1] When powered, the Rigid wants to continuously run in a 360 degree circle (literally - not exaggerating); you have to constantly fight it to go in a straight line... not good for baseboards or the narrow edges on kitchen cabinets and the like. The Makita runs smooth and straight and lets you control it, not vice versa. Sanding edges was a breeze. [#2] The Makita is significantly quieter than the Rigid. [#3] The hand grip on this Makita is smaller than *any other* 1/4 sheet sander on the market and thus a much more comfortable fit for my small, female hands. [#4] Prefer the hard shell Makita case vs. the fabric Rigid case. It was a no-brainer... the Rigid went back to the store. July 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have owned many Makita Palm Sanders I use these in work and have owned at least five and tried other brands. Makita is the best in this class hands down. October 29, 2014
