Yes it does. You must register it after you buy it with Ridgid. This is true wilt all Right tools.

Can it do wet sanding? For sanding/finishing stones with a little bit of water.

I wouldn't try it (electric). They use pneumatic sanders for that.

I highly recommend the sander. I like how quickly I can load and unload the paper. It has amazing speed for an electric sander.

Would this be too small of a unit to use on a 12x16 floor deck and pickets of the railings?

Asked by Scott June 9, 2018

Answers

Don't use this type of sander for decks unless you are strapped for cash and have all the time in the world. For decks you really need a belt sander, the more powerful and heavy (yes, weight is a plus) the better. I have a Makita 9403 (about $240) and love it. You'll still need a small oscillating sander for the edges, or a sanding block and plenty of elbow grease.

Hi Andy, Sanding pads are considered a wearable item so would not be covered under the LSA. Thanks for asking. Greg

Ridgid quality good - some poor design here
I've used this unit for a handful of years - it works (runs) fine. The evac on the rear is nice because it fits both the big shop vac and small shop vac hoses. The "hole press" which puts holes in the paper to allow the sawdust to stay mostly in the machine and travel to the shop vac is very handy - and needed. The rub - I've put some $40+ into buying new/replacement "plates" that hold onto the sand paper. The front "clip" is flat out a bad design - it is plastic so it wears poorly as you put sandpaper in - and worse - the "rotation" of the clip actually pushes the sandpaper OUT of the front. I have used a $5 sander from another vendor with much, MUCH better luck holding onto the paper... Thus - a 2 star rating.

Lightweight, Powerful and easy to load. Not sure how durable this sander is but so far very happy with it's performance. The dust collector works very well, is easy to empty and the sander is very powerful for it's small size. The handle is insulated and comfortable and keeps the vibration to a minimum. Currently using the sander on a large project finishing multiple sheets of plywood flooring to prep for urethane coating and fine sanding between coats. Time will tell how durable this item is but so far am very pleased with this sander.

As a sander it was fine. I got this as a gift and have used it for less than a hour. The front paper holder plastic clip broke make it useless.

The overwhelming majority of power tools I own have the Ridgid name on them. Typically I feel they are well designed, durable and carry an unbeatable warranty (as long as you register them). With that being said this is one Ridgid tool I can't recommend. The dust collection is about worthless. After a couple hours of use there is easily double the amount of dust on the outside of the sander (mostly covered) than in the dust collection (almost empty). The dust collection is coming apart after a small handful of short uses. If you choose to buy this you'll want to leave room in the budget for a sufficient respirator. It's mostly uncontrollable. It seems to have good power (the only reason I didn't give it one star) however I'm not sure what good the power is if you can't control where you're sanding. The only application it maybe tolerable for is large surfaces, and only if you're ok sanding the outer edge of the surface by hand. Several review claimed it has a 12' cord, mine only has a 6'. On a side note I didn't have the issue of sand paper not staying put as many of the other reviews, which may've been a result of limited use. Thankful Ridgid has a 90 day no questions asked return policy.

I just built my dining room table and used this for all sanding. It did a great job sanding and also capturing the dust. I have used sander without the vacuum feature and it is almost unbearable on a big job. This was almost like no dust in the air! Awesome! I also love that it comes with a template to puncture holes in third part sand paper so you can utilize the vacuum feature no matter what paper you use. Recommended.
