2.7-Amp 6 in. Random Orbital Sander with Variable Speed is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from sander works great very smooth and quiate sander works great very smooth and quiate
Date published: 2017-03-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice unit Have tried numerous orbital sanders for doing body work on project cars, and I've had two of these units, they last a long time and take a lot of abuse, and are easier to handle than any of the other orbitals I've tried for paint removal and color sanding. 2nd one is showing signs the bearings are going bad but doesn't upset me, they've been through harsh treatment for at least 5 years each, perfectly willing to spend a little more and get another one of these gems. Makita makes quality equipment, I've got several of their buffers and sanders. Would not hesitate to recommend to others.
