Where's it made?

I'm not sure I think China. I took it back. I had one like it for over ten years. This one broke into pieces on the third use! It had a nice case.

Why only a 1 year warranty, the comparable Milwauke has a 5 year warranty. Should I be comcerned?

Asked by Rgau October 24, 2017

Yeah, because it broke for me with less than 10 hrs run time.

Can this tool be used for sanding paint, spackle, and plaster on a brick wall?

Asked by nevi September 15, 2017

Answers

I would not use it for any of those tasks, this is a finishing sander not a rough sander. Works very well for finishing wood, metal, and other similar materials.

Can i order this item with 220v ?

Answers

While this power tool, along with virtually all hand operated power tools, is available throughout the rest of the world in 220 volt, it is not sold in the USA in any format other than 120 volt. I go back and forth to Brazil, where I also have a home, and there, this tool is available both ways.

Can anyone tell me the sanding stroke size

Thank you for your question. The sanding stroke is 1/8 in.

Will this sander fit into the supplied case? Or is the case designed for accessories only?

Asked by Handi1 May 29, 2016

Answers

This case is wonderful, fits the sander, in a specific location, the dust bag sits right behind it, with plenty of room for a hundred pre-cut sheets on their side up in front. I wish more cases had extra room like this.

How long will take me to finish sending in a room 200 sqf

This is a great tool, but the wrong tool to start sanding any part of an entire room.

The bottom plate bearing popped out due to structural failure of the sand paper backing plate. A teardown found that plastic around the bottom plate bearing was broken and was likely pressed in without backing support. With only a few hours of gentle finish sanding operational time, I now need to contend with driving an hour out of my way and back again, twice for repair of a new product or shipping it at my expense. This has seriously soured me on future Makita buys. In contrast my Milwaukee disc ROS has suffered through such horrible abuse that I've melted the hook and look backing off and its rock solid (lots of vibration though). As it turns out, the part plus shipping is less than 10 bucks (3 bucks part, 7 bucks ship) from a online repair store and its a good chance to fix something without having to wait forever or travel very far. I have already begun to tell coworkers to avoid Makita sanders.

Nice little sander, easy to use, fits my small hands well. I’m glad I got it. I’m using it now to finish preparing my very old wood screen door for repainting.

Work Horse! I wish I had a dime for every review I've wrote and a quarter for everyone I read. Yhe countless positive reviews for this sander swayed me. I have a daunting project of refinishing all the doors in my home and needed a sander that was up to the challenge. It performs flawlessly and minimizes airborn sawdust with the included collection bag. I have put about 50 manhours of operational use on this sander and no problems. It feels comfortable in my hand, Does not vibrate my hands to the point of numbing and it is super easy to guide over the working surface. It has a respectable power cord length and a very nice travel case which I think is a bonus. Dollar for Dollar I dont think this sander can be beat in the price category.

Overall I would have to say this is yet another great product by Makita. The finishing sander does a great job, is light enough for delicate work yet heavy enough to help reduce vibration. My only complaint would be that I did not receive the "handy tool case" which would make for storage much better than sitting on the bench with the cord wrapped around it.

We are restoring all the doors and trim in our 90 year old home. We were in desperate need of a finisher sander. After researching the various brands and products we settled on this one and have been very pleased (We also bought Model # BO5030K Orbital Sander to do more of the heavy lifting). We have now used and abused this product for over a year now. It has run literally over 100 hours and still going like it is new. Features I like: *uses a standard 1/4 sheet - just rip the paper in quarters and put it on (dont forget to punch the holes for dust collection) *Dust collection is decent, but I really like that the bag can be removed and shop vac can be connected. *Paper is easy to attach *Fits good in hand and has rubber for good grip *The switch is sealed up so dust will not get into it (a problem with some other sanders) Not a huge fan of the plastic box (I don't use it). Would have preferred a bag. All in all, this sand runs great and gets the job done.

I love this sander! It had been over 20 years since using a hand sander in high school wood shop class. They have definitely improved since then. Seems to orbit at a higher RPM and is very powerful for its size. Loading the paper is literally a snap. Dust collection bag helps too. It is worth waiting for online delivery since you essentially get the free case.
