Customer Questions & Answers

Is this a good sander to use on a hail damaged redwood deck?

If so, what type of attachment should I use? I'll be doing this myself and it's a pretty big deck, so I'm looking for something lightweight but powerful. Thank you!
Asked by: SusanaMusic
Yes but use caution. I would use an orbital sander after the disk sander to smooth the wood some more

Does this sander use discs with the common 7/8 inch hole diameter in the middle? Or does it ONLY use specialized discs, available ONLY from Makita?

Asked by: zwoof
The Makita GV5010, 4.2 Amp 5 in. Corded Disc Sander, uses discs with a 1/2 in. arbor hole.

4.2 Amp 5 in. Corded Disc Sander is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the most powerful method of removing paint from deck railings I was trying to figure out the best way to efficiently remove old paint from my deck railing and vertical posts. I bought this item and an adaptor for my Dewalt, 4 and 1/2 inch grinder. For a hard pressure treated post or rail, this 4.2 Amp 5 In. Corded Disc Sander just didn't match up with the powerful Dewalt Grinder with the sand attachment. So, I don't recommend it for that reason - not powerful and fast enough. It certainly will work, but it will take two times the time to finish this project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from only one of its kind This is the updated version of the makita 5" disk sander. I've used this sander for 15 years, with 6" fiber backed disks. Works great for moderate to heavy sanding of wood, paint feathering of peeling, and even for sharpening lawnmower blades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a work horse I am a painting contractor, I have used this sander for years on exterior fascia and rough cut exterior trim. I've bought one 13 yrs ago and still use it. I can buy the black plastic disk backing when they break or chip. I can also use a tap and dye to remove the Allen nut that holds the disks if it gets stripped from your workers not being careful and stripping it out. Awesome tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only sander weight less than 3 lbs Good for exterior sanding only, sander design like a drill give good balance in your hand and less fatigue ,weight 2.6lbs. Only one speed, sanding disc break easy, 5" sand paper hard to find at other hardware store, online order from Home Depot takes more than two weeks. I saw lots of painter using this Makita drill sander, sanding with one hand up in the ladder, price $99 is high. Less arm fatigue is the main reason I bought it.
