Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 152 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 I picked up this sander as I had to sand the bottom side of an 18 foot boat, I found it worked very well and I was running 60 grit sandpaper with it and it ran super for 8 hours of sanding that day and it has been working great every day I have used it, I am very impressed with this sander and would recommend it to anyone looking for a sander, the dust collection also works quite well as I had to empty the bag quite a bit but like almost any sander there was still a good stream of dust leaving the sanding area, I am sure hooking up a vacuum would make a big difference but I was outdoors so did not care June 15, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Could be lighter... This is actually a decent sander and the dust bag does a great job of performing it's task. I purchased it as the Makita it replaces doesn't have a dust bag and I was looking for a tool that wasn't blowing dust into my face when it was in use. I have smaller hands & while the grip is pretty ergonomic, it was a stretch for my hands. I found the Makita fit my hand better and the Makita was also much lighter. It's still a good sander and has performed flawlessly anytime I grab it for a task October 28, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What a great sander for the price Now, keep in mind that this is the first Random Orbit Sander that I own or even try. I have to say, I am extremely impressed with this sander, I use it all the time now and can't imagine living without it anymore. The dust collection is pretty effective which was a surprise to me. Ryobi isn't typically the first manufacturer I look at when selecting tools, I sure am glad I did with this one though. January 19, 2009
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy little sander Very impressed with this sander, especially for the price. The dust extraction system works very well and I like the weight and feel of the sander during use. It does seem like it goes through sanding discs quickly (they stop sticking to the sander long before the grit wears out) - but these discs are inexpensive to replace and so I'm not to worried about it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very good sander if you use it correctly I have had two of these sanders now and believe I got more than my moneys worth out of each of them. Used correctly (don't push down excessively, don't run it on an edge ..ie keep it flat on the work, change the paper when worn so as not to kill the sander to save 40c on a disk), and blow it out or vacuum it out every hour or so and it will exceed the price you paid for it in terms of value. I have sanded several sailboat bottoms and topsides, numerous large woodworking projects and last fall I sanded the old stain off of all the cedar shake shingles on my entire house (2400 sq ft) and garage only now is the sander starting to sound like it has bearing problems. The first sander I left out in the rain and it was never right after that but it had worked countless hours prior to my carelessness. I just cant image what Festool or Fein might offer to make them worth 20 times the price. January 31, 2015
