Is it hook and loop sander

Asked by: rocky
It comes with a hook and loop pad. You can buy a pad for use with adhesive back sanding discs. I have one.

Does this Model do the same that Model BO5041 3 amp 5 in. Corded Random orbital sander?

I'm trying to figure out if this sander does the same thing than the sander Model BO5041, because one states is for Finishing and other says Disc sander. ..
Asked by: Fredyg
Both the BO5031K and B05041 are Random Orbit Sanders. Yes the Makita BO5031K and the Makita BO5041 will perform the same functions. The BO5041 features a rear and front handle.

Can the dust port be connected to a vacuum hose?

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.
Asked by: lilrabbit
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”.

3 Amp 5 in. Corded Random Orbital Sander with Variable Speed Tool Case is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes. I like the sander . Its range of RPM... Yes. I like the sander . Its range of RPM fits my need for sanding "scroll sawn ornaments ". These ornaments are "cut" on extremely thin cabinet grade plywood ( Birch) and some cuts are extremely "fragile" to sand. This is why my selection at low end of RPM rating for this sander fits my need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recently purchased this sander. Had what appears to be an identical Makita which I used for many... Recently purchased this sander. Had what appears to be an identical Makita which I used for many years. Finally wore it out and replaced it with this unit. I loved my original Makita Orbital Sander. This new unit operates beautifully. I'm sure I'll get many years of excellent use out of it. The features I like about this model are: the variable speed (can tone it down for more delicate sanding) and the palm sanding design. The models with the front and rear handles are fine for flat work, but to get into corners in cabinets, drawers and confined spaces the palm design works best. it sands so nicely you don't need the handles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
