Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great sander I bought this sander to help with sanding Spackle, this product cut my time down immensely. What use to take 3 or 4 hours, now takes half an hour!! July 19, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not a bad sander for the price. I would gladly pay a few more bucks if Porter would correct the problem with the dust collector blowing off every time you turn it on. Not practical to use inside. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Have several different sanders this is the best Easy change of sanding disks and dust collector works well probably even better with a vacuum April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Sander! Fits the hand comfortably; Not too tall; plenty of power! I have two other brand name sanders that don't compare to the results, comfort and ease of connecting to dust system. The value is outstanding! December 22, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by No longer made in the USA I bought this sander to replace an older model I owned because they were always made in thr USA. Much to my surprise they are now made in Mexico. I returned this product and will not buy any more Porter Cable products. December 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by porter cable orbital sander very good value rugged and is a good buy i would reccomed this December 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent value Surprisingly quiet and good at dust removal. It is a great improvement over the less expensive offbrand model it replaced. The slight price increase buys a lot of quality. Porter-Cable is known for quality and this solidly built tool is no exception. Hand vibration is low. November 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well I am a professional carpenter. I use this orbital sander for fast surface prep. I also use the DeWalt Orbital sander. The Porter Cable works great. My only complaint is that I have trouble keeping the dust collection bag on the sander. The sander itself runs smooth and quiet. (relative to others). It does a good job of stock removal and surface prep for finishing. April 28, 2015
