About This Product

The 6 in. Random Orbit Sander (model BO6050J) with variable speed has a 2-mode switch for random orbit action (finish sanding and buffing) and random orbit with forced rotation (aggressive sanding and polishing) providing leading wood sanding performance in Douglas-Fir and SPF. This model offers a variable speed control dial with an increased range of random orbits (1,600 - 6,800 OPM) and sanding strokes (3,200 - 13,600) allowing you to match the speed to the application. The compact tool height, 5-3/4 in. and reduced weight, 5.7 lbs., increases efficiency and maneuverability, while the ergonomically designed barrel grip delivers optimum comfort and control. Engineered with a "tool-less" pad change system, the BO6050J uses convenient hook-and-loop abrasive sanding paper and accessories enabling a fast and efficient workflow.

        Makita....6.6 Amp 6in. Random Orbital Sander with Variable Speed. I've had this sander for a couple of months now and it is without a doubt the best sander I've ever had, a Bit pricey but worth every penny. This sander can be a beast with 60 or 80 grit or gentle as can be with 220 grit or even 320 grit sanding discs. This sander has many features like variable speed control, Fine or fast finish with 2-mode selection, a comfortable barrel grip, two mode random orbit switch, side handle which I don't use but it's there. The dust collection port works very well, Hook and Loop easy to change 6 in. sanding Discs makes it easy to change to different grits. the carrying case is very durable. This is a Great Sander I highly recommend it.

          Tons of power. Good solid tool. Operates well for long times. Used for sanding boats. But is a bit heavy and two hands is needed because it's slightly off balanced feel. Otherwise pretty stoked on it

              It’s my new favorite tool. It’s big, but really does the job. Quieter than expected as well.

              Full disclosure I have not used this yet, I bought it for a project on my boat which I'll get to in the spring. However, I have several other Makita sanders and polishers and am very happy with them. With regard to the dust port. The size is identical to a Festool sander which is about twice the price. Rockler sells a dust adaptor kit for about $30 which will fit. There are also individual adaptors available. I am extremely happy with the service I received from Home Depot in ordering and shipping this sander.
