Customer Questions & Answers

does this have variable speed

Asked by: 48433
no, but its random orbital, so the rate, direction and spin vary so it doesn't leave scratch marks...works very well.

does this sander have holes?

im looking for a sander of 5in but without holes in the bottom.
Asked by: jp
If you mean on the sanding surface, yes. They match up with the sandpaper piece holes so it can pull extra sawdust into the collection bag.

5 in. Random Orbital Sander is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 23.

Reasonable price and excellent performance on first project of building a mantle. It out performed my expectations for the price! I was aiming to plane/straighten the surfaces of old 8 ft scrap wood which had bowed slightly over time with a belt sander, which worked. But of course there remained very visible marks from the belt sander. This is my first orbital sander, but it did a great job at ridding the wood of any visible marks left by the belt sander without leaving noticeable marks itself. This up front work left the ripping and cutting easier with a good mantle in the end. I would recommend Porter Cable products to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most ergonomic sander I have used I have owned several brands of orbital sanders but this is by far the best I've used. The only problem was finding one on the shelves at any of your stores. This is the reason I ordered it online (not that I mind shopping online but I had to buy another brand to use until the Porter Cable arrived). You beat the price at Lowes by $7.00 but they didn't have any on their shelves either.

I'm using it for small surface areas, mostly pine wood. I haven't had any issues with the dust collection bag blowing off like others have mentioned. Overall, a fantastic buy for the price, and my dad (a lifelong contractor/cabinet-builder) says he's got Porter Cable stuff that has lasted forever. Looking forward to that!

I have several of the older model of this sander ranging from 5-15 years old. This one takes the same pad as the older ones I have which is a definite plus. The quality appears to be up to par, very little vibration, and the sander is more comfortable than the older models. The sander leaves a fine finish as well. Great sander for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
