Q:Does this model have A built-in vacuum port adapter for improved dust collection?

Answer This Question

A:  Of course, it has the obvious bag but the bag is friction fit and falls off all the time. (Not a good feature.) So the smooth tube that inserts into the bag is all there is. If you want to hook it up to a shop system it would only take a hose and a band clamp to hook it up.

    A:  Thank you for your question. Yes, the BO5031K 5" Random Orbit Sander, variable speed, with Tool Case can be connected to a vacuum using the proper hose.

                    Yes. I like the sander . Its range of RPM fits my need for sanding "scroll sawn ornaments ". These ornaments are "cut" on extremely thin cabinet grade plywood ( Birch) and some cuts are extremely "fragile" to sand. This is why my selection at low end of RPM rating for this sander fits my need.
