I bought this to sand the edges of my deck where the belt sander couldn't reach. Specially the railings. It did an amazing job. Very comfortable in my hand.

This works very well for my needs. Makita is a quality brand that will last for a very long time. My only regret is that, it took me so long to get one of these. But now that I have it, I’m so glad that life is much easier working with small projects.

I am a girl who is figuring things out as I go along. I guess the make me a DIYer or a not quite SUREer. But what I do know us this sander levels out wood like nobody's business. I had an older sander and it was difficult to put on the paper, there was dust everywhere, hard to get in tight places. But with this sander the job that I could complete with my husband older sander was completed with this one. I would definitely recommend this sander.
