Questions & Answers

Do you have to purchase different sanders for different things like sanding, finishing, and polishing, or it all depends on the sanding disc I use.
Asked by: Ronnie
No, just different sandpaper (or polishing discs that Velcro on). The variable speed lets this cover a lot of ground, from very slow to very fast. A belt sander is nice to have for taking off a lot of material in a hurry, but it doesn't do anything this doesn't.

Could this be used for sanding a painted wood floor? I plan on doing a little at a time. I can't use a big sander.
Asked by: Gardener
The sander would be fine for sanding a door as long as it does not have too many uneven surfaces. The sander works well on flat surfaces, but can't get into tight corners. Also, since the door is painted, you should wear a mask of some sort, even though the sander has a bag.

How in the world is there no vacuum attachment for this? Come on Makita!

i love this thing so far, but I can’t find a vacuum attachment marketed anywhere.
Asked by: avalanchesd
The best thing about this sander is that the little black bag that comes with it, collects all the dust and you don't need to attach it to any vacuum. Because the dust is so fine it will not stay in the vacuum and it will come out on the other side. If you use it indoors, everything in the house, not just the room will be covered with dust. I have this sander and it works great with the dust bag.

3 Amp 5 in. Corded Variable Speed Random Orbital Sander with Dust Bag is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 218.

My Craftsman random orbit sander lasted a very long time before it finally wore out, and I was going to buy another of the same model. But they don't make it anymore, so I ponied up $20 more for the Makita one. While I don't know how long this sander will last (duh) it was absolutely worth it. This sander is smoother, quieter, and makes way, way less mess (far better dust collection). It also has a very slow speed setting, which among other things is useful for gently roughing up surfaces in between coats of finish - i.e. you don't want to sand the surface and remove the previous coat. For the woodworking I do, the extra handle can get in the way, so I take it off sometimes (which only takes about five seconds). But I guess it would be nice for sanding a house or a similar application that could tire out your arm. Definitely recommended.

First, to address the problem with connecting this to a shop vacuum: There is NO problem connecting this to a shop vacuum. The dust bag is connected to the sander via a black adapter plate. Remove the dust bag from the plate, connect a shop hose that has a diameter of 1-7/8...such as...oh, I don't know...most of the Ridgid vacuums that are offered from Home Depot. That's it. That's all you need to do. No custom work, no buying water hoses or whatever else was suggested. Just unplug one piece, and plug another in, and go. The end. It staggers me the amount of people who have trouble figuring this out. It does make a very loud noise, as you have a huge volume of air moving through a small area....no different than a whistle or other wind instrument. But once you connect the shop vacuum, I'd say it gets rid of over 95% of the dust. More like 97-98%. The one downside is finding rougher grit sandpaper for it...HD goes down to 60 grit, and I'd really like to see 40 or 36....but that's a problem with accessories, and not a problem with the sander.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I purchased this sander based on the description 'built-in vacuum port adapter for improved dust ... I purchased this sander based on the description 'built-in vacuum port adapter for improved dust collection', which left me MAD upon the first use. I don't understand why tool makers don't make connection to a shop vac a more important consideration in their design. I don't know anyone that doesn't use a shop vac when sanding. The 'built-in vacuum part adapter' leaves a lot to be desired. If you plan to connect this to your vacuum hose make sure you have duct tape on hand. The connection won't hold long enough to turn it on. I've owned many sanders and have never seen a trigger switch on one. I was curious about it, and the jury is still out. I'm not sure the trigger lock on this one will stand up to constant use? With my initial disappointment set aside. I DO like the additional grip on this sander. (It was the second reason for choosing this model) My hands are getting older and I found it helpful. I also liked the weight and low vibration.
