Whats the difference between the 3.3 Amp Corded 6in And the 5in Is it just the price because specifications are the same

Asked by: MJ54
Thanks for the inquiry. Aside from the backing pad size, the only difference between ROS20VC-5 and ROS20VC-6 is their length. The ROS20VC-5 has 16.125" length while the ROS20VC-6 has 14.25" length. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

I have a lot of 5"x5hole sandpaper. Can I use it on a Bosch ROSVC-5 sander?

Asked by: mandy
Yes, but most of the holes will not match up so the dust collection will not work as well.

Asked by: LK
Thank you for your question. The ROS65 series sander will accept either 5" or 6" pads. The 6" backing pad is RS6045.

3.3 Amp Corded 5 in. Variable Speed Random Orbital Sander/Polisher with Vibration Control is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 49.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I bought this sander based on a review in a wood working magazine. They had done a test where they set a cup of water on top of the sander while it was running and there was barely a ripple. I thought no way, but after using it I have to say it really is that good. The way the motor is insulating from the housing negates almost all vibration. You can hear it going, you can tell it should be buzzing in your hand but it's totally still. You have the movement of the pat whirling around but you don't get the buzz like you normally do from random orbit sanders/mice and the like. I used some of the diablo universal discs and the suction still works just great, so you don't have to worry about finding the 8 hole pads, I can imagine it'll be even more dust free when I get the dust collector hooked up. The fore grip is easily removable with an included bit so if you're having to get into some tight edges you can just knock that right off the front and hold it on the top or rear. The variable speed works great. I'm not a professional sander so I don't know what all speeds need to be used for what materials but it does vary the speed reliably. Either way, if you're looking for a random orbit sander, consider this your buy. You can buy the 6" pad for it as well or even get the kit which comes both the 5" and 6" a nice box if you like, but like she says "the 5" is good enough for me."

This sander does not come as advertised in the last photo of the description- there is no box to store the parts in and there is no 6" changeable pad. not only that the 6" pad is not available through HD. My local store was helpful in getting me a discount for the misrepresented sander but online has not changed the photo yet and it appears this is and ongoing problem for YEARS and no one has fixed it!! I was going to give this product a chance to replace my aging Festool collection but that is not going to happen. for now the sander will sit in the corner and remind me of how HomeDepot.com has failed me( probably for the last time). I feel lied to and disappointed that this will probably continue

I bought this sander because I was fed up with my single-speed palm sander. The brake was shot and the sander was so tiring to use. I replaced the brake, but the sander just wasn't the same as when first purchased. I looked into Festool sanders, but at twice the price I couldn't justify over this Bosch. I am very pleased with this purchase. The sander is much quieter, much easier to control, has far superior dust collection (have not tried hooking into the shop vac yet), and much minimized vibration. Overall a pleasure to use. The Bosch is larger than a palm sander, which could be a drawback in some situations. It comes with an attachment to connect to a shop vac, but no hard case or bag. I tend to like cases so I can keep the sander and pads all together. Would definitely recommend if you are looking to move on from 5" palm sanders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One sander to rule them all I bought this sander about 6 months ago, and prior to that I had a nice yellow 5" ROS - it was fine, but bare bones with a ton of vibration, and it took me a while to decide that the cost of the new Bosch was worth it... and it was worth every penny! If you've ever had tingling fingers after a sanding session, this will take care of that problem. You can comfortably hold this sander several ways: holding the front and back handles simultaneously, or with just one hand on the top of the sander. The dust collection is amazing. When sanding in a finished space, I use the canister and produce very little dust; when sanding in my shop, I use a shop-vac and the suction is so strong that I need to hold workpieces down to avoid picking them up with the sander. The 5 variable speeds cover every sanding situation I encounter, from slow sanding for finish & edge sanding on soft woods, to highest speed for more aggressive sanding. Last time I checked, you could buy a 6" kit to convert this to a 6" sander - I have not done that yet. My only complaint is that I wish it was easier to find adapters for the dust port - I have ordered 3, and only one fits. But really it's by far the best sander I've ever even touched.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from low vibration The sander is great to use. It has very low vibration and variable speeds. i always had problems with my hands with other sanders using very long . I can use for hours with not problems .The only problem is I never get to use because my wife uses this one and I get the old ones ,so i wait my turn . I'am sure I will be buying a another one soon .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets my demanding requirements I bought this a few weeks ago while I was making 3 large 4'x20"x8'  cabinets for a client. The client was persnickity about the finish and I needed a ROS to quickly sand sheets of presanded 150 grit  3/4 plywood to 180 grit after priming then to 220 grit prior to the second coat of oil based paint. It did the job very well and quickly. I used water based primer which raised some of the wood grain after drying. This gave me the allowed me the opportunity to remove all these wood particle which would have caused problems for my finish. I used 180 grit sand paper at this point and only had to go over the the plywood once using a 50% overlap technique on my previous sanding pass. I wasn't too particular with my 50% pass and it still performed well.  Some things I did for dust collection. First I have the good fortune of a large carport to sand outside and let mother nature remove some of the dust for me. Second I used a shop vacuum with a hose extension taped to the handle (see picture). This set up eliminated the cord from dragging across the larger sheets of wood. Each time I changed the sanding disc I used compressed air to blow out the hook & loop pad and the dust collection holes. I also would stick the air nozzle in one of the holes and rotate the sanding pad. This would clean out the internal blades and make dust collection efficient for the entire project. This was probably the key to having very little dust flying around the shop. Many times I worked at night and had all the doors to the shop closed - I only used the compressed air outside when cleaning the ROS. The ROS was key to the very nice finish on the cabinets, so much so the client ordered 5 more
