Customer Questions & Answers

Concrete polishing?

Is it possible to retro fit this sander so it would be compatible for diamond pads? (for concrete polishing)
Asked by: Anonymous
The dust collection fan is fragile and part of the drive system, so NO.

Can this sander be used as an auto polisher?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: Rickmc
I won't recommend an orbit sander for auto polish. The reason is that the pad for the sanding disk is hard when polishers have foam pad to avoid cutting through at the edge. HD sells effective and not that expensive polisher (which I also have). Much better way to go.

disks for Ridgid 6 inch sander

Where do you find a place to purchase the sanding pads/disks for the Ridgid sander? I would like to see the advertising include directions so the purchaser can find the place to buy supplies for each item.
Asked by: Anonymous
I am using the Diablo disks the shop carry. Their hole pattern match any sander. They work great for me.

Concrete polishing?

So does HD carry a tool for this purpose?
Asked by: Anonymous
You may better off using a grinder than a sander.

Is this the same model that was tested in Fine Woodworking in 2009?

The model tested in FW was R2611 and this is listed as 26111 so I'm not sure if they are the same.
Asked by: TSexton
That is the one.

A lot of reviews a bad on this sander, but the 2610 was great. Have these problems been taken care of. Thanks Chris

I look at a lot of reviews both good and bad. It just seems like those with problems had the same thing wrong. I love ridgid tools and was just wondering. Thanks chris.

I havent had any problems with my sander and found it worked great. I have had about 3 months. It is very powerful and heavy duty.

6 in. Variable-Speed Dual Random Orbital Sander with AIRGUARD Technology is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 102.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love mine! Looking for another so I do not have to change grits as often. 100 to 150. Original has worked flawlessly for 3 years!!

This is a great product and removes material quickly but it is not meant for long hours of use. I bought this product to sand a sailboat down to the fiberglass so I worked it hard and applied most of my 230 lbs of weight to it. I burned up the motor in the process. I think that for smaller jobs this is a phenomenal product but not something that can sustain hours of operation.

The only problem is that the sand paper disk would fly off. The first one I used stayed on for about 15 minutes. The second one only stayed on seconds at a time. These came with the machine. When it stayed on, it worked great. I ended the project sanding a lot by hand cuz I didn't have another sanding disk to put on.

Couldn't find my receipt so Rigid says I'm out of luck. Didn't like the balance or performance of the machine anyway. Crummy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible The worst possible sander, I'm just buying it cause of the lifetime warranty, even with that, I'm in the shop more than actually working with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rigid 6" orbital sander Large and cumbersome, had fatigue after use, and the sanding pads that came with it, wouldn't stay attached to it!
