6 in. Variable-Speed Dual Random Orbital Sander with AIRGUARD Technology is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 147.

I sanded about 150 sq. ft. of oak flooring with this sander and it worked very well - much more aggressive than my 5" Ridgid. The trigger lock is a bit difficult to engage but otherwise I had no complaints. You'll want to hook it to a shop vac for large jobs like I did. The dust bag works well but is quickly overwhelmed when you're hogging old finish with 40 grit discs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for floors and open surfaces Used as an edge sander for floor and final sanding for table tops and this works perfectly. The ability to switch between rough and finer orbital motion is great. Great vibration pads to prevent your hands from going numb. Two annoying pieces is the trigger is a bit soft so it takes a bit longer expectation to turn on and will sometimes turn off if you've been sanding for a while and your finger loosens off the grip. The second problem is that the switch between the fine and rough orbit and the always on button are very close to each other and it is in the way for holding

Good tool for the price , my second one , have a wood shop for 40 years , I use these tools . Now it's not a higher priced sander , I own them too , not as smooth , but it sands good . Sometimes , I set up three sanders at once , better than changing discs all day . I use the Ridged with 60 grit , others with finer discs . But it is a good all around sander ... like I said , especially for the price , and don't buy rebuilt , spend 15 more dollars , go new .

With a 60 grit disk, this sander can take down ridges from imperfect saw cuts in no time. It was also great for smoothing out the surface of our posts, beams, and rafters before sanding. Extremely powerful and performed as well as I could have hoped. I will update this review in the future as I get a better idea for the longevity of the product.

I have only used it a couple of hours at the most. I had an earlier version of the same product and used it for several years as I built my cabinets and did all the trim work in my home. The earlier version was not very good in captured the sawdust, this model changed it but, again, not enough time to judge that feature.

The painted surface was mildewed and weathered. The 6inch sander worked pretty well, but could use a little more power when I pushed down heavily on rough surface. I was using coarse grit discs. Sander is comfortable to use.

I had not used an orbital sander before and I am glad I found this one. I have always used a palm sander, no more on open spaces. I tried to bog it down and the power is certainly there. Great buy.

I got it to replace some really old sanders I have and it's amazing how much better this works. Hook it up to a shop-vac and there is almost no dust at all. A very good buy.
