        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.

            Great little randon orbital sander. Exceeded my expectations. Comfortable in my hand for larger projects. Really like the variable speed component.

            Fair sander terrible dust collection
            Owned this for a couple weeks and already making noise, the lower speeds no longer work and dust collection is terrible. If you happen to tilt the sander with anything in the dust bag it ends up getting blown out of the vents in the sander. It does sand well but trigger lock is a pain sometimes, doesn't always lock. Will be returning

              wife has been using this sander on a project we are doing. had to do some searching for a vacuum attachment for it. after that we are very satisfied with how well it keeps the sanding dust to a minimum and no issues keeping sanding discs attached
