Answer: 
Yes mine did. Tip - if the model number has a K on the end it indicates a case (why a 'K' and not a 'C' is beyond me.

Can the dust port be connected to a vacuum hose?

This question is from 3 Amp 5 in. Corded Random Orbital Sander with Variable Speed Tool Case
Asked by
Read all my Q&A
August 2, 2012
Given my experience with other Makita tools, I am inclined to buy this today, but my old (20 years) Makita finishing sander cannot be adapted to a vacuum, and dust collection has become a critical issue for me. I have reviewed the owner's manual posted here. It explains the use of the dust collection bag, but does not indicate whether the port can readily be connected to a vacuum hose.

Answer: 
Makita BO5030K 5” Random Orbit Sander has a rubberized grip for increased comfort and efficient through-the-pad dust collection system. The BO5030K can be used with the dust bag included or a dust collection system. The port outside diameter (OD) is 7/8” and the inside diameter (ID) is 5/8”.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I am Very Happy with the Makita Model # BO5030K 3 Amp 5 in. Corded Random Orbit Sander. The Makita Model # BO5030K 3 Amp 5 in. Corded Random Orbit Sander has made the job so much easier. I am not a pro and can use all the help I can get on my projects. It is a real pleasure to operate. I did not know this, but I have found out it is much better to drop the speed on the finish sanding work. Very easy to do. I made 2 picture frames 21 x 21 and their appearance is much better... The Hook and Lock system is very easy to deal with. January 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 5 in. orbit sander works great for my sanding needs on my truck and wood products May 13, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't Buy if You Want an Aggressive Sander I already own a Mikita finish sander and was looking for a sander that was a bit more aggressive, specifically an orbital sander. This sander performs very poorly in removing wood, even with 60 grit paper. I returned the sander as I believed it was not functioning properly. I was told by a Makita product supervisor that the sander was functioning the way it was supposed to. He said this is really a finish sander and is supposed to be used to fine finish wood. Now I own two finish sanders and need to shop around for a sander that will complement the finish sander I already own. March 4, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice product I bought variable speed random orbital sander for surfboard repairs. The collection bag does a nice job of minimizing dust in the work space, however it needs frequent cleaning to be efficient and the speed must be set close to max. The variable speed is a must to match speed and application. I cannot comment on the durability and longevity as I only used this product a handful of times. July 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Defective Mine was defective, wobbled crazy-like, clearly broken from the start. Didn't work properly. Sent is back and got a Milwaukee, which turned out to be fantastic. February 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product I bought this based on a recommendation. I am not a bit disappointed. It is very efficient (hardly have to hold on to it) and it does not leave any scratch marks, even with 60 grit. I like the variable speed feature. February 14, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What you'd expect from Makita Great sander, well designed, quality materials and built to last. June 12, 2013
