          A:  Both the BO5031K and B05041 are Random Orbit Sanders. Yes the Makita BO5031K and the Makita BO5041 will perform the same functions. The BO5041 features a rear and front handle.

            A:  It comes with a hook and loop pad. You can buy a pad for use with adhesive back sanding discs. I have one.

              A:  Yes it is. Works great, makes the job much easier.

                It works well, but user beware, it starts spinning right away (if set at high enough speed) and will tend to ruin your project if not extremely careful. It is best to start at the lowest speed when placing the sander on the object, then, carefully increase speed (even then there may be marks requiring extra sanding). Therefore, the claim that it provides a smooth sanding operation is misleading. The BO5041 (and BO5041K) model does not start sanding or spinning until being placed on the work piece; why the BO5031(K) is not made to do the same I have no idea, wished it did.

                  Works great but I need a new pad that holds the paper on. I am not sure why but the paper won’t stick to it now.

                  Makita is a superior product; however, after unboxing it, I found the case to be extremely cheap and - upon powering up the unit - it seems as loud as all the others. I had purchased based on Bob Vila recommendation that it was quietest orbital sander out there. Maybe it is technically a few decibels lower but not perceptibly quieter, so I returned it, totally intact. Sorry for your trouble sending to me.
