      Q:My orbital sander does not spin at lower speeds, it just vibrates. Is this normal? I thought it was supposed to do both regardless of the speed setting.

            Seems great so far
            Had this delivered today, and proceeded to use it for 3+ hours for rough and finish sanding....worked great, and the dust collection seemed decent as well. I love the ergonomics, comfortable to use and pretty lightweight. I can't really ask for more out of an orbital sander - hopefully it lasts for awhile.

              Great product, I used it to sand a couple of growth charts and it worked extremely well. There were no marks using 150 then 320.

              A must have.
              I rented this same unit from Home Depot for a job and I was amazed at the quality of this tool right away. The following day I returned it and bought myself one. It made a difficult job a breeze. The sturdiness, the sound of the motor is solid and firm, the trigger is ergonomic and responsive and the adjustable handle makes all the difference. The vacuum attachment allows a shop vac to be connected and it works amazingly. What we have here is a perfect tool. I highly recommend it.

                Super nice kit that is a huge step-up from the model without variable speed. Included adjustable handle and variable speed are a game changers on this tool. The hard case makes this combo worth the extra few dollars spent. 5" velcro pads are available everywhere and make this tool super easy and convenient to use! Buying this reminded me what I have been missing for so long with Makita quality. When the opportunity arises I will pick up a Makita lithium ion drill/impact driver set. I noticed Makita now offers a 2 battery chainsaw that looks like a must have! 5-star, highly recommended product.

                Makita makes the best 5-inch random orbital sander on the market by far. The front handle helps control the sander for a better experience and the dust bag works great. Don't waste your time with other brands cuz you will be disappointed. 5 Stars for this sander.

                  Good overall. Seems to have a bit less power than the older model. The "random" does seem more random than before.
