Customer Questions & Answers

I have a RS280VS ryobi varible speed random orbit sander. My unit calls for a #4600506 Backing Pad. Will a # 4600505 Backing Pat Fit ?

Asked by: joseph
It depends. Some older ( 10-15 yr ) Ryobi disc sander models have 4 small alignment posts on the hub. The new backer pads do not have the holes to fit over the posts. The hub of these older units needs to be modified by grinding the posts flush. After that, the backer can be mounted.

Backing Pad is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your time Bought it today it's going back tomorrow. Installed it changed sand paper from one grit to another and the velcro pad came off. The adhesive does not stick.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed after 1 hour usage Although the product appears to be compatible with older Ryobi sanders, the screw holes holding the pad to the sander failed after only one hours use. This product may work with the newer sanders, but it is totally unsatisfactory with sanders that are five years old or older. "Don't waste your money".

Rated 1 out of 5 by from hook and loop conversion does not work The backing pad works fine with stick-on sandpaper but the conversion pad that allows one to use to use hook and loop sandpaper is terrible. It fell off after 10 minutes of sanding. The conversion pad uses a peel-off/stick-on surface to adhere to the backing pad. Once the glue on the conversion pad heats up, it collects sawdust and falls off. Now, I'm looking around for another replacement pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly functional The "backing pad" for my Craftsman 5-In. Random Orbit Sander required replacement. They break down with age, particularly when stored in a hot garage. Sears price for the Craftsman replacement backing pad was nearly twice as high as Home Depot's Ryobi replacement backing pad... and the part had to be ordered. Quick trip to my local HD and I was sanding... probably 3 hours this afternoon and the hook grip pad worked without issue. Lots of dust, some splinters from worn deck lumber and even a spot or two where the deck was still damp... still no problems. Very pleased with product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Match Freeman, Was really a great help. I needed a sanding pad for a hand sander which was purchased at SEARS and I would have had to order the sanding pad; which didn't make any sense. I would think that part would have been in the store. Well I went to Home Depot and Freeman matched up the pad I needed and installed it right there. I was so happy because this was my first time using a hand sander. My daughter's revamped bedroom furniture came out beautiful. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It served my needs perfectly. It performed well at all speeds, and the sandpaper didn't turn loose until I was ready for it to. I use it quite often on gun stocks and barrels.
