Worked well for a while, and then suddenly didn't
I've had this sander for about 5 years, and used it mainly to refinish the bottom of my boat. It has maybe 30 hours of total use, and worked well until a couple months ago. I was sanding a rust spot on a old car hood, and the sander gradually started to shake & rattle, and over about 10 minutes got progressively worse, to the point that it's unusable and something inside obviously broke. I'm an experienced mechanic, so I took it apart. Found the problem, and am astounded at the cheapness and poor engineering of this sander. It's literally designed to fail with anything more than girl scout use. The photo shows the primary mount of the flywheel/fan to the motor shaft, where the failure occurred. First, it's tiny, with a single small (looks like #8) phillips screw and tiny flats to prevent rotation of the flywheel on the shaft. This could maybe work if the flywheel is hardened steel and the screw is high grade, but NOPE. The flywheel is zinc-based pot metal, which is quite soft and would need a far more substantial mounting surface to be reliable. This is 100% engineering incompetence. I have a lot of Ridgid tools and generally they've been good, but this changes my view of the brand. This tool is barely used, and there's nothing I can do except toss it in the trash.

canoe repairs
I build cedar strip boats so the 6 inch sander works well and is a time saver, although I had to buy a second one because the first one had to be sent out for repairs. Also I love the option of being able to connect to a vacuum as dust collector.

Powerful & Useful but with Limitations
Effective product for woodworking needs-I'm refinishing 100 + year old hardwood floors and needed something that could pack a punch while getting into grooves where commercial equipment fails. My biggest complaint-the hook and loop sanding pad has a limited lifespan. I have a few of these sanders and this is a repeat problem. Notoriously, the hooks and loops wear down, and the adhesive sanding discs go flying across the room. After this happens, the only option is a replacement pad, which, I'm having difficulty finding. Who has/sells them? It's something to consider as this sander unit generally retails around $100 while replacement pads seem to be around $30 each. Over the life of this sander, this cost adds up!

This sander exceeded my expectations. Unless you have a 60 gallon compressor to run an air sander, get the Rigid, you will not be disappointed. I'm using it to sand a tree trunk that will be an end table, and the variable speed makes it really nice to go over curves on a radius edge without taking too many layers off by accident.

Well balanced and great stock removal for the price but with a catch..
Worked incredibly well for several days but after changing the 7th abrasive disc, the sanding hook/loop pad adhesive failed and it detached from the unit.. major flaw that stopped production and missed delivery on a rush job for the holidays. Probly wont buy again if the parts fail so quickly.. id have maybe expected this after 100 or more discs..

I use this sander just about every day. Haven't had a single problem with it. Works great and I'll invest more of my money in Ridgid tools

works good but bad backing pad
Works great and is better than the porter cable sander (the 6 “ one that looks like an angle grinder), but seems to bog down more but, is easier to handle and has good dust collection. Was able to sand in a small shed without the need of a dust mask. The only problem I have is the hook and loop backing pad came off with the first pad change and had to exchange it. Hoping this one holds up better.
