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 percent. 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent tool, but little expensive. Polisher works really well. It saves time and I end up with a better job. January 21, 2014
