There is a similar one on Amazon with a plastic case, but I can't tell if this is the same thing.

Answer: 
No unfortunately this model does not come with a case in the store. The BO5041K does come with a case all Makita model numbers with a "K" at the end do.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sweet makita orbit sander Purchased this makita orbit sander at home depot, it is an amazing sander. I made some motor skills activities for my kids. I will recomend this sander May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product. Excellent product. Sanded 250 sq foot deck at highest speed (=5) in less than 2 h. This is my first sander and I don't think any other product would do it better. Ergonomics very good. Handle can be positioned at any angle or removed. The dust bag adequate for the job being outside. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Sander Great sander. Love the ergonomic design of the on-off switch. Very little vibration too. Superior product. July 6, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Works well new But not after long the Velcro pad diminishes very fast and you won't be able to take the sanding discs off without a major struggle. June 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A beast of a small sander It's a good value and the dust bag works surprisingly well. May 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Legit Smooth operation and plenty of power to not bog down has made this my go to sanding option. From light finishing passes to 60/80 grit stock removal this has been great. Variable speed is a nice touch and the weight of the tool feel spot on. This is also not too loud, I know that silly to point out, but my other hand-held sanders seems excessively loud. The dust collection bag does a decent job however I really need to get a reducer to get this hooked into either a shop vac or a hopeful dust collection system one day. August 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good control Unlike sanders I purchased in the past the speed control is very easy to regulate, and I really like the finger button switch. You can control your sanding easier and stop and start without causing grit marks and swirls in the wood. I have recently started purchasing Makita power tools over other brands and so far am very happy with the power and performance of all the tools, the price may be a little more but I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heads-up: Makita 192108-A Hose does not fit Great sander but the Makita 192108-A 3/4-Inch ID/1-OD diameter by 10-Foot Hose - shown in the general catalog on the Makita website as working with this sander - simply does not fit. End fitting is not flexible enough to be forced over the port on the sander. Lots of complaints in online reviews of the hose that it doesn't fit various sanders. March 18, 2016
