Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by motts Great buy
This is my 3rd random orbital sander. The first one lasted for years so I bought the newer model which broke down in a few months and took weeks to get replacement parts. When I saw the Skil in the store I was drawn to the dust collection system and the price. When my second sander quit, I ordered a Skil on line and received it very quickly. My first impression on opening the box was "this thing is heavy" I used it today for the first time. It ran very smooth and used half the discs that my previous sanders did for the same job. I didn't notice the extra weight and the job went quickly. The dust collector worked well and I didn't have to use a dust mask (though I probably should) on a hot summer day. With the ability to connect my vacuum, I will be able to use it in the house in the winter, when I can't work outside.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kvm1185 Quality Sander for the Price!
Drill has been wonderful so far. The plug-in feature allows you to sand without power drop-off. No complaints so far!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VailGal Great little sander!
Easy to use, the little vacuum attached reduced the dust, though there was still some in the air. Glad I made the purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doityourself Very Nice and Easy to Use
I bought an older house, 40 years old, and the interior trim, cabinets and doors had all been previously stained. I received several quotes but they were $2,000.00 and up. I decided that since I could not afford to contract the work I would attempt it myself. After research and a lot of determination I attempted to do it myself. The orbital sander received excellent reviews plus it didn't put saw dust everywhere. After using it on several door and the bathroom cabinet I have been very impressed with the ease of use and the quality. I am looking forward to tackling my kitchen cabinets but could not do it without a decent quality sander. I strongly recommend it, even my boyfriend was impressed with the high quality for the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bikelady Skil orbital sander
I am building a cedar strip canoe and needed a good orbital sander for the job. The Skil sander has a rubber guard around the edge which is a great added feature to prevent bangs on the thin wood strips at the bow and stern. It is so easy to take off a used disc and change to a new one. I sand down old steel bicycle frames too. I have several other types of sanders, but this is a terrific new tool for my use!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mickey1218 GREAT SANDER EXCEPT FOR POWER CORD
VERY PLEASED WITH THIS ORBITAL SANDER WORKS FINE EXCEPT FOR THE STIFF PLASTIC POWER CORD, WHY SKILL DOESN'T USE A RUBBER POWER CORD?
