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 4.7 out of 5 by 24 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 Working well despite very heavy use I don't really have 50 words to say. I had two other brands of electric sanders that I'd worn out, after many months of use. I've only had this one a month, so I'm not able to fully compare. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good sander works well enough. Great little sander, would buy it again. Trust your gut. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Makita For Life Awesome sander the only thing lacking is the vacuum attachment/dust collection. I have to tape the hose onto the sander for it to stay on for indoor jobs. Otherwise it does an amazing job for all other projects! August 4, 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality Only used once, but the quality seems to be excellent. August 2, 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
