It is ideal for woodworkers, finish carpenters and general contractors. The BO5041 features a Makita built 3 Amp motor with over-sized sealed ball bearing construction for longer tool life.

Really nice orbital. I do a lot of sanding, and the tool is really stable....like rock solid. The variable speed is nice and the lock-on button makes a huge difference. The cord could be longer if I had any criticism at all that would be it, but I have really enjoyed this sander.

      Really nice sander. 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.

        Having problems with the sanding disks flying off, I'm using the hook and loop discs and after a brief three minutes the disc fly's off, This is only a month old and never had this issue before, Big Makita guy but second guessing this one. Please help Makita.

          Hello Hobbyist & Workers, I have had many sanding projects here lately and have gone through 3 other major brand 5" orbital sanders and they lasted anywhere from 4 hours up to as long as 6 days. Now I'm talking about running a sander for hours at a time, like 6 hours straight, and only stopped to change the bag or sanding disc. (NOTE: Use the right grit sandpaper for the job and let the sander do the work, Never apply extra pressure down to try and get it to cut better ) And for the dust bag, it is amazing, it packs that little bag so tight with dust that it feels like pressing on a bag of flour. By far, this orbital sander is the best I've ever used in every way. Matter of fact, my son in law is getting one for Christmas this year that's how good they are. I attached a photo of the sander I purchased Model BO5041 variable speed model. Great price $79

            This thing has tons of power and doesn't tear your hands up holding it. It has two handles you can use if you want, but it is easy to control with one hand. Some orbital sanders I can't hold for 5 min without having to stop. I used this for 3 hours straight and i had no problems.

            When I first purchased this sander I wasn't sure that I would really use the handle or the variable speed all that often. You see I have been using the Makita palm grip sander for years and I love it. Turns out I was wrong. I use the handle and the variable speed all the time. The handle is nice because it easily adjust to different positions and I was surprised by how well the sander can still remove wood at the slower speeds. (they are really slow). For the work that I do this sander is great.

            Used this a couple of times now and seems to work pretty good. A lot less dust than the Dewalt I had. Used it on building a table
