Yes, the sander will connect directly to a shop vac. You remove the sawdust bag and connect the vac hose at the same place as the sawdust bag.

The case is not small, BUT I like the idea that you can easily wrap the cord in it with some extra paper. It’s light but sturdy.

Excellent orbital sander
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
I don’t have anything to compare it to, as this is the first time I’ve bought and used an electron sander, but I am in love with this thing. I stripped back my huge dining table in a few hours rather than what would’ve taken days of sanding or the mess of chemical stripping. Now I want to strip and refinish everything! It is very smooth and easy to use.

The sander has better ergonomics than any of the other offerings out there. The extra removable-adjustable handle made a big difference, as did the trigger style on-off switch. I did a big job of sanding down a vertical garage door, and the extra handle made a big difference. The variable speed feature came in handy, as did the dust bag, but the other brands also have these. On the negative side, the hook and loop interface for the sanding discs are weak and don't hold on well. I tried 3m and Diablo discs, and neither was held tightly. The internet said that many brands have also changed their hook and loop design to offer less grip because people were complaining that the older designs gripped the sanding discs too tightly and made it difficult to remove...I would prefer that over having the discs flying off the sander. Otherwise, I would have scored this a full 5 stars.
