Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 106 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent tool !!!... this tool is essential when working with wood. it's easy to use. very quiet and stable. good grip and handling. February 18, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 2 sanders in three years. maybe a better home owner tool I bought one of these three years ago to use as work, my job had me using it not every day but maybe every week. on the first sander the bottom plate became loose a little at a time so that by the time I noticed and took it apart the screw was stripped out and couldn't be re screwed. (this also happened to a co-worker of mine) Home depot replaced it. the second sander the motor burnt out. the third sander is a DeWalt. this one functioned alright for the beginning of it's life, and might work fine for a homeowner but any one reading this should probably spend the extra $20 and buy the Dewalt. (more power and a better dust bag). March 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Great! I love it!! This is the first random orbital sander I have ever used, but I love this one. Works well, fits my hand well, gets the job done. I am thrilled with it! May 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great sander I had to finally by a new sander because my older one died after 10 years. I just used the new sander on a new project and it worked great!! Wasn't that expensive, great quality, would buy again. April 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor quality I purchased the sander about 5 months ago, I've used it about 6 times and the screw that holds the bottom plate on keeps coming loose. I've pulled it apart several times and tighten. I've even used loc tite on it and it still came loose. Going tomorrow to purchase a Milwaukee, hopefully it's better May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did it right I like the sander it works very well solved my problem exactly the way I wanted. The price was reasonable and affordable. May 5, 2016
