How "heavy" is this sander to use with an extension cord attached vs. the cordless model with the battery installed? I'll be working vertically on 6 ft panels most of the time vs. flat and wondering about fatigue. I'm a woman 5'2" with average upper body strength. Thanks for your input.
Asked by: PainterGirl
Thank you for your question. The BO5041K 5" Random Orbit Sander weighs 6.3 lbs. and is equipped with an Ergonomic rubberized palm grip and handle for improved operator comfort. We are unable to speak to the fatigue factor as that will differ from person to person.

Asked by: Nicolas
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.

It has plenty of power to get those really tough jobs done quickly. Also, this sander has that delicate touch to create very smooth surfaces. Finally, I was able to use my shops

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First experience I used this sander to prepare a wood (plywood) floor to be painted. Excellent performance. So I have used it once. Use over time might generate other comments. However I am happy with this purchase.

I am a female who is inexperienced with power tools, in fact I have always found them to be a bit intimidating; however, I got sick of seeing paint drips and years of badly-applied paint on the woodwork in my 90 year-old house, so I decided to take the plunge. I did a great deal of research into types of sanders, brands, uses, and sandpaper. I arrived on the Makita, mainly for reputation as a brand and good reviews. I purchased several grits of sandpaper and went to work. MAN what a difference a sander makes! I will never sand by hand again. The 80 grit combined with the setting of "5" on the sander has made my doors and baseboards as smooth as a baby's behind. I had no idea what I was missing. There's nothing like having the right tool for the job. A word of caution about the dustbag: you must attach it correctly, or expect a good bit of what you are sanding to end up all over the room. Not the end of the world, certainly, but just be careful and save on clean up time. Keep the sander moving, clean out the bag often, and check your sandpaper to make sure you haven't worn it out and you are good to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita, what else can I say... I researched all the major brands prior my purchase. Several good competitors left me a tough choice. However, the option of the adjustable/removable handle was my deciding factor. It paid off because I use the handle frequently when control is a must when operating the sander at an odd angle or upside down. I catch myself laughing at the ease, speed, and comfort using this tool. Can't believe I hand sanded all these years...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had bought this one sooner I purchased this sander to replace my 5" Bosch random Orbit sander, which had given me nothing but problems. (Which was strange because I have a Bosch router that I want to be buried with) Anyway, this sander is quiet, aggressive and has great dust collection. If you need a random orbit sander, you wont be disappointed with this one.
