Makita’s 5 in. Random Orbit Sander, Model BO5030K, delivers fast, smooth performance with better grip and control. The BO5030K is ideal for woodworkers and finish carpenters who require a best-in-class random orbit sander. The BO5030K 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 BO5030K 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Sander Yet After burning through 3 Ryobi Sanders in the last year, I decided to give the Makita a try. This sander is head and shoulders above the Ryobi in terms of quality, power and ergonomics. It was a little bit out of my price range but there was no way I was going to spend another 40 dollars on junk. The Makita is more comfortable to hold, more powerful and lighter. I am glad I spent the extra and bought this one. An added bonus is the carrying case. I like my tools to have a case that goes with them. Even though the case is relatively cheap, the sander fits in it well and I haven't had any problems with it yet. November 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Hold, Works Well I had previously been using a Ryobi sander when that one quit in the middle of a small job. The Ryobi, while a great sander, had a large grip that was difficult to use. I'm sure it works great for the average handyman, but I'm a handywoman with stubby fingers. I knew I wanted one that felt comfortable in my hand for long periods of sanding. I picked up each sander and this one felt the most comfortable to me, while staying in my price point. After a few uses, I can attest that it is far more comfortable, and I no longer fear losing grip on it mid-job. It does a great job sanding and it does not get hot even after an hour of use. The case is an unexpected delight. It's so much easier to store the thing now with the case and I worry a lot less about making a mess when carting it around the house or throwing it in my car.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by -Assembled in U.S.A.-- Amazing performance to boot! I've used a few other Makita sanders in the past, and always loved them. Low noise and vibration, efficient operation, and long life are always part of what makes them great. The 5" ROS is no exception. It's way quieter and easier to control than the others available near this price point, and the case has plenty of room for extra sandpaper. One of my favorite things about this sander is that it's assembled in the U.S.A.! Try to find that in any other sander in a big-box retailer! Go Makita! February 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! In an age where it has become all but impossible to find power ANYTHING made in the USA, this product delivers...well, assembled in the USA (greatly appreciated given existing competition). The dust collection bag works wonderfully and so long as you follow the instructions regarding frequency of emptying, the dust created was at MOST minimal. I feel this is impressive given the amount of sawdust which is created by this unit. After using the sander immediately after purchase, I will say some sanding pads I bought at a HD competitor (which also happen to be domestically produced) stuck to the sanding pad as if they were glued on. These pads work much better than the Diablo "variety" pack I purchased at HD. In the age of lost domestic industry, you may pay a LITTLE more for something made in USA, but I feel as though the product support and the people who actually produce the item are also easier to contact/understand/more accountable. Thank you Home Depot for carrying products which are produced in the USA and actually create/maintain jobs and domestic tax revenue. I am obviously a fan of the above. March 31, 2012
