Answer: 
The circular sand papers have eight holes, which do a very good job of directing the saw dust into the filter bag. I have used the sander for hours, with no overheating.
It is a pleasure to do the fine sanding with this Milwaukee.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 152 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Serious problem with on/off switch I returned the sander after about 5 days of use--the on/off switch died. I returned the replacement after only 1 day--same problem. I called Milwaukee Tech Support, they say they are unaware of a problem. I am giving the Milwaukee sander one last chance because it has exceptional dust collection. But, that does not help if you cannot turn it on. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect finish sander This sander works excellent and fast. Takes cross grain marks out without a problem. Used it on all sorts of projects and I haven't used another sander that works near as well as this one. March 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Monster sander power This is actually the second time I've purchased this sander model. I bought it because I have a woodworking buddy and we both needed/wanted one. This sander is powerful and best of all the dust collector works. I even sand inside my shop now without getting sawdust every where. It's quiet and smooth running. Love it and do not hesitate to brag about it. November 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wish I bought this years ago, quick change and variable speed I needed to sand all my kitchen cabinets and this sander is a god send. It is so easy to change discs and the variable speed is great for final sanding. Add everything together with Milwaukee tool durability and you get one great tool. March 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! Best I've seen. Sands great. No swirl marks. Speed settings are easy to use. Feels great in your hand and comfortably easy to control. August 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sander I purchased this sander to aid in refinishing tables, dressers, etc. So far it has worked great for what I am using it for. It has relatively good dust collection, does not kill my hands with too much vibration, easy to control, has as much (or as little) power as I need. A great addition to my toolbox. December 15, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works like a charm supplies a great finish to every project we have used it for and believe me we put it through the paces. I can always rely on my milwaukee tools and this sander is no different. the fine people at Home Depot directed me to this product and I am glad they did February 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOVE MY SANDER SANDER WORKS GREAT AND THE DUST BAG IS EASY TO REMOVE AND CLEAN. HANDS DOWN ONE OF THE BEST THAT HD CARRIES. December 31, 2015
