          Heads Up: Mirka Mesh Abrasive Dust Free Sanding Discs fly off. I've had to cement a more aggressive "hook" tape to existing pads. Other than that it's a great value and well made.

            I bought the Bosch ROS20VS to replace an old random orbital sander that I could no longer control during sanding. I don’t know what was wrong with it, but it was easy to tell it’s had its day. So, I was particularly excited to get this new sander. The bottom line is that it’s really nice to use. I find the Bosch easy to control and relatively quiet, and best of all, it does a really nice job of sanding, leaving very few sanding marks on the surface of the wood. The little dust collector attachment seems to work well, but it’s a pain to remove and clean it. An adapter comes with the Bosch so you can hook it up to a wet/dry vac, but my vac has a large (2.5”) hose, and the adapter looks like it’s for a 1.25’ or 1.5” hose, so I haven’t use it. Overall, a nice addition to my workshop.

            Fantastic sander
            I purchased this sander to replace my Ryobi 1/4 sheet sander. I found the unit to be well balanced and powerful. It operates smoothly with almost no vibration. Very little dust when uzing 80 grit paper to sand pine stock. To my surprise the bag included an adapter to attach my shop vac hose directly to the sander. When used in this configuration there was ZERO dust created. The vercro held sanding pads firmly with no slipping. This is the best sander i've ever used!

              The Bosch sander was very smooth and it allowed me to produce an even surface on a kitchen table that I am refinishing. I have only used it for one project so far but I expect to get much more use out of it. I am also considering purchasing the extra soft backing pad to refinish some chairs that have curved surfaces. The included dust collection worked very well.

                Quality sander at a great price. The stock dust collection is superior to anything else I've seen/used on a random orbit. Very smooth start up and shut down with minimal vibration while in use.

                  Sanding Pad Design Failure
                  The sanding pad’s hooks are a terrible design. It doesn’t hold 3M sanding discs long enough for them to wear out. I got a warranty replacement sanding pad and babied it by only using the weight of the sander. The new one still wouldn’t hold a disc for more than 10 bf. Maybe if the hooks weren’t so small it would hold the disc. Also to cover Bosch’s response to others with this concern, I was not bearing down on the tool.
