      I would hesitate to buy this sander.
      I use this for sanding furniture. The Hook and Loop Sander Pad just fell apart and crumbled while sitting in the case.

        Great Sander
        I’ve had this sander for over 5 years. Use it all the time on DIY progects (remodeling our home and on cars). Thought it stopped once, but it was User error. I wasnt pushing the switch all the way in. Love how I can hook my shop vac up to it!

          Junk
          The base pad just separated in two when I went to change the sanding disc. The name doesn't mean quality anymore.

          Hello, we are sorry to hear that our 5" Random Orbit Palm Sander hasn't been performing to your expectations. We will be in contact shortly to provide further assistance. Thanks- Will with Milwaukee Tool
            Overall good quality
            The output filter box seems great quality and like it would filter well, but I only use this with a vacuum. The included vacuum attachment works fairly well but I'm afraid of how to replace it if it ever breaks. The vents on the sides let out a bit of dust when with the vacuum going, which is very sightly disappointing. The included bag is really great, the included sandpaper I didn't use but looks like of cheap. Overall great for the price I think.

            You need to upgrade!
            Awesome little tool that helped get through the job much quicker than the old traditional sanders.

            Milwaukee Sander Kicks Butt!
            Just pick this bad boy up and tried it out. Hooked it up to the shop vac and went to it. Pleased to say that once again Milwaukee puts out unstoppable tools. This sander is quiet and dust free when hooked to the vac.

              Out of 5 brands this one failed for us.
              We use these orbital sanders throughout the day to make jump rails. We prefer the adhesive pads instead of hook and loop since the hook and loop fails quickly on rounded surfaces resulting in flying sanding disks. We currently have 3 Milwaukees, 5 Makitas, 1 Ridgid, 4 Ryobis and 1 Dewalt orbital sander. The Milwaukees are the new units.We haven't had any failures yet on the other brands (over 5 years of ownership). At close to a year of use, we had 1 Milwaukee fail this month with the bearing falling off. Luckily it is easy to get these tools repaired at a close warranty center but it takes a while for the repaired unit to come back. We are trying to move to Milwaukee only brand facility so I may be doing regular trips to the warranty center for these units. Our other Milwaukee power tools seem to be holding up OK except for 1 cordless drill and impact set that had switch failures after 3 years of use.

                Powerful adjustable speed finishing sander
                Milwaukee 3-Amp Corded 5 in. Random Orbit Palm Sander is a powerful sander. This finish orbital sander has the features you are looking for in this kind of tool. First off as I said, it has a 3-Amp motor you can feel once its revved up from a soft start to prevent swirls. A first for me is the adjustable speed control which allows you to set the rotating speed up to 12,000 RPM's. In spite of the power it feels comfortable with little vibration which is nice for my hands that have become stiff with time. It takes a standard 5-inch disk, both hook and loop or can handle the adhesive backs, too. The exhaust feature give you options, a vacuum attachment and a dust box. The dust box on this sander is large and has, once again for me, an exhaust paper filter on top. The vacuum adapter is capable of handling hoses from 1 1/4-inch up to 2 1/2-inches. It fit snugly on my 1 1/4-shop vac, but the dust box will be easier for small projects as it works well. The weak link on sanders in general is dust gets into the mechanism and burns them out. One critical part is the on/off switch and Milwaukee did a nice job of protecting this from happening. The rocker switch looks well sealed as does the entire sander. The speed knob is easy to adjust when running with one finger. As to trying it out it worked as expected with a light touch that left a good job behind. It was easy to hold, much less vibration than others I've owned. I own three sanders not including this one, only one is a Milwaukee 1/4-sheet which is my favorite and now this one, too.

                Wonderful Sander
                This review is for the Milwaukee 3 Amp Corded 5 in. Random Orbit Palm Sander Model 6034-21. This palm sander comes with a new collection system. Instead of the old bag style it is a molded collection container with a replaceable pleated filter. This can be removed and an included adapter can be installed which supports standard shop vac hose sizes. Internal suction is adequate and varies based on the speed setting for the motor. The sander includes a 3.0 Amp permanent magnet motor which generates 7,000 – 12,000 Oscillations Per Minute (OPM) via the speed dial. The front power button is encased in molded rubber to prevent dust intrusion. The paper attachment is via hook and loop but an alternate base can be purchased for pressure attachment. The sander includes an electronic soft start mechanism to eliminate swirl marks and an anti-vibration design to improve comfort. Sanding action was nice and produced a great finish. The product also included two sheets of 80 grit and 100 grit paper.
