Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good little sander Doesn't take much pressure at all to sand right to wood. February 19, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Just another Run of the Mill Sander I've had this sander for a couple of years but haven't used it a whole lot. The hook and loop pad did not last very long at all. After only a few hours of sanding, the pad will not hold a sanding disk. The cost of replacing the pad is almost as much as a new sander (including shipping). Also, the clips holding the filter broke off after a few times of removing the filter for cleaning. Plastic! What can you expect! I'm not impressed. The old adage applies, "You get what you pay for"!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Obit Sander The sander came quickly, I ordered online with in-store pick-up, which was great. I have already sanded down our cedar picnic table and restained it. I love the fact that I can hook this sander up to our shop vac to catch the dust, and it catches about 99% of all the dust. It is is easy to manuver, and right side up, upside down, or sideways, it did a great job. for an inexpensive sander. This was ready to use out of the box, and I put it through it's paces immediatly and it did well. September 4, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by not a great experience Bought this in the last 3 or so weeks. Clip on one side of of dust cup already broke off. now center of of orbiting pad is breaking off from motor so will be needed to be replaced. Mind you this is the pressure control model that alerts you if you press to hard on the sander always kept it in the green. not for anyone beyond a average wood worker. December 10, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good while it lasted I've had this sander for about a year. Used for little projects here and there. Today while sanding some plywood , a sudden smell of burning, a loud pop and three of the four screws in the bottom got hot enough to burn the sandpaper. They fell out after removing the sandpaper and just like that we are done. I did get a year out of it , by todays standards (where things seem to be engineered to fail 3 hours after the warranty is up) so I should be happy with that. I will probably look to the older tools from here on out. Bottom line is , if you need a great sander for roughly a year, then here it is. I would recommend this to a friend , but with that warning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 5in sander I got this sander as a gift I think I dose a great job. December 12, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hook and loop pad doesn't hold sandpaper discs. This tool was a let down. After using it for just a handful of projects, the hook and loop pad was nonfunctional, not holding brand new sandpaper discs in place. Even when the pad was perfectly clean, the sandpaper discs went flying off. Pretty bummed about this purchase. November 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Sander for home projects Using my previous experience with Skil products I grabbed this sander when buying a new Skil jig saw. So far, I'm happy with it. Plenty powerful, and I love the pressure meter. It's easy to apply too much pressure and take too much material off. After watching the pressure meter a few times you get a natural feel for the kind of pressure to apply. That feature is excellent when teaching someone else how to sand a project properly. It does make more noise than other sanders of the same size. It may be because of the high RPM rate of this sander which also seems to be a bit faster than other palm sanders. Any brand sanding discs will fit and they are easy to change. The sawdust collection system works without issues, but you will have to clean it often on a bigger job. Hooking it to a vacuum is your best bet when building something larger and using this a lot. For the price, it's a great sander for almost all jobs. For sensitive sanding, you'll want a smaller and lighter machine. September 8, 2012
