Product Overview

The BO6040 variable speed random orbit sander from Makita has a two-mode switch for random orbit action (finish sanding) and random orbit with forced rotation (aggressive sanding and polishing). Its superior engineering and design reduce vibration by 20%. This model offers a variable speed control dial (1,600-5,800 OPM; 180-670 rpm) for various applications. The compact tool height of just 5-3/16 in. increases efficiency and maneuverability and the small diameter barrel grip gives you optimum comfort and control. The BO6040 uses convenient hook-and-loop abrasive sanding discs and accessories.
