I have been using this type of sander for years. I put it through heck on a daily basis. It is the fastest and hardest working sander on the market..But you must buy a 5 inch sanding pad because it has a counter weight inside that balances the 5 inch pad on the random orbit.

Answer: 
I have not used a sander pad so I have no experience with it. I am not an expert in sanding. Keep in mind that this is not a rotary machine but an orbital. I don't know if you can use an orbital machine for sanding. Do your research on the internet or call Porter Cable Customer Service. I am sure they will be able to answer your question.

It comes with one polishing pad, instructions, and a wrench. I recommend chemical brothers hex logic pads and backing plate instead of the supplied one in the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy tool Use the polisher all the time . Works well in hard to get areas
Date published: 2016-06-24
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Emptiest box EVER The buffer itself is nice however mine came without the advertised tool, buffing pad, etc. I got a box with just the buffer in it. I contacted Home Depot several times to try and correct the problem with no positive outcome, no returned emails etc.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Polisher bad vibration This product did not even get 1500 scratches with medium cut compound and aggressive pad. The vibration was so bad you could barely finish a small car. I have other Porter Cable tools and am very surprised. I would not recommend this product.
