I was not able to buy correctly configured sanding pads at the store. They only sold the Diablo pads, whose holes do not match those of the sander. Because they don’t match The suction of the vacuum through the pad did not work well at all. I was able to find 5 inch pads on the Internet had a very good price

Sander works just fine, its the flemizy attachment that connects vacuum hose thats terrible
There is a grey/clear plastic sleeve that slides over the sander receiver on one side and the other part of the sleeve connects to vacuum fitting. The amount of stress placed on this flimsey sleeve is fairly significant when the vacuum hose is added. Very poor design to say the least. Anyway it split on both sides in a matter of seconds of use. Hand to improvise with 100 mile an hour duct tape. Looked everywhere for a replacement but nowhere to be found. I really like and enjoy my Milwaukee tools and i have bunch. This has been the only one so far that i have found to be cheaply built.

Wish I never switched
I switched from dewalt once I started seeing my friend buying all the m18 fuel stuff seemed a lot better so a few months ago I made the switch I wish I never did and it has caused me nothing but time and wasted money I’m on my 3 rd fuel drill set my second multi tool and the 2 month old sander just stoped working I will probably never buy another tool and look for a better platform there tools are not worth the money if I could go back in time I would keep my xr/ flexvolt stuff and never switched when u use and rely on these toools to pay your bills it is important to have a reliable tool Milwaukee just Is not that and way over priced

I was sceptical at first but was swayed to pull the trigger on my purchase thanks to the reviews. it works amazing with a 8amp battery. 4 stars because of the quality of the dust collector.

The dust collector is cheap, and fills up fast. I wasn't planning on using the dust collector because I bought the handheld Milwaukee M18 vacuum for over $100 thinking the two tools would be compatible, but they aren't. Home Depot doesn't carry an adapter to make it work either. I bought an adapter elsewhere, but that didn't fit right. I now bought a set of 3 adapters online and hope that I can get one of them to fit. Also, the sanding pads Home Depot recommends don't have the right hole pattern. I had to measure, and find those online too. If this just came with an adapter to fit the vacuum hose, it would have saved me a lot of headache. My stand-up plug-in vacuum has the same diameter hose as the Milwaukee handheld, so it won't work with that either. Another thing, I find myself accidentally turning off the tool while sanding because of the placement of the power button.

Very handy to have a battery sander, no cord in the way, lots of power, dust collection is great, only complaint would be it's not the most comfortable sander I've used. It's by no means terrible but definitely takes some time to get used to. Took 80 grit with a 5.0 battery to the wood top of my workebech and even leaned on it a bit and never stopped the pad. I didnt know I needed the variable speed option untill I used it, very convenient for light sanding or rounding an edge or blemish!! Overall Milwaukee didnt disappoint once again!

This is a great sander. Plenty of power and control for the user. 6 speed settings let you really dial this thing in for each job you are doing.
