Product Overview

Makita's 5 in. Random Orbit Sander (model BO5030) delivers fast, smooth performance with better grip and control. The BO5030 is ideal for woodworkers and finish carpenters who require a best-in-class random orbit sander. It features a pad control system for controlled pad speed upon start up, with a powerful 3-Amp motor for continuous operation, 1/8 in. random orbit action and 12,000 OPM for fast and smooth sanding. The BO5030 is precision engineered with all ball bearing construction for longer tool life. Comfort and ease-of-use features include an ergonomically designed rubberized palm that fits like a glove with even pressure and easy control. The rubber sealed switch minimizes dust contamination and increases durability. The efficient through-the-pad dust collection system helps provide a cleaner work environment, while the fabric dust bag has an extra wide mouth for faster disposal. The BO5030 uses quick-change 5 in. 8-hole hook-and-loop abrasive disc.

I just bought this. The pad comes off after no more than 2 minutes of sanding. I'm assuming the pads I bought are old and the adhesive is just too old to be effective. Anyone else have this issue?
Asked by: kb
Thank you for your question. By pad I'm assuming the customer means sanding disc. The BO5030 utilize hook-and-loop sanding discs not adhesive backed pads. Please see 743081-8 5" Round Backing Pad, Hook & Loop. If you have any more problems, please call the Makita Call Center during business hours at (800)4-MAKITA, they’re based in Buford, GA and are ready to help.

does this model come with a case?

There is a model that appears to be the same but has a K at the end BO5030K that comes with a case - same cost, but I only see it available for store pickup in Bellevue, WA (too far away)
Asked by: fasce
No, the BO5030 does not include a case.

3 Amp 5 in. Corded Random Orbital Sander is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great I used this to send some cedar boards before staining and some sheetrock mud, it works really well. I like the speed adjustment function. My only worry is the velcro might not last very long and sand paper will start to fly off. But it hasnt happen yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works great I am pleased with the Makita rotary sander..this is my second as the first burned up after many years. This model has a dust bag, which is very handy and keeps dust out of the air.
