What does 'random' mean in 'random orbital sander'?
Asked by: steelhead
I'm not sure exactly either. The product vibrates, and sort of skips. You really need to grip it and guide it to get a smooth sand. I messed up a lot and dug into the furniture. The pieces I was sanding are very cheap and not decorative. So my mistakes were not a big issue.

Can you use this on a deck?

Asked by: dee
This is a small sander. It is not fast. I think it is more for small projects. You could use it, but it would be a time consuming project and a lot of sand paper changes.

2.6 Amp Corded 5 in. Random Orbital Sander is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 578.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! Bought this sander at the beginning of the year and have used it on multiple projects. Let me tell you...it can remove a lot of material! I previously had a detail sander that I was using and it wasn’t well suited for the scale of the projects I’ve been working on. The footprint of the sander covers a lot more surface than the detail sander I had and is a lot more capable. Different grits of sand paper for the various stages of sanding and the quick-moving action of the sander makes finishing a project a breeze. The only gripe I have about it is the dust collection bag doesn’t collect everything, but attach your shop vac to the sander and you’re set! I highly recommend this product based on price, quality, and reliability. This thing has exceeded my expectations. I’m now a big fan of Ryobi products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power, power, power! We are renovating a century home and were removing decades of layers of paint from the doors and baseboards. We loved this sander because not only does it have the power to get the job done, but it is very comfortable in the hand, the ergonomics are great. Good balance, easy to hold (even after several hours of sanding) and light weight. The dust collection bag, while small is very effective. I have several Ryobi tools both corded and cordless. They are a great value and have always performed as well or better than some of the big name brands. This random orbit sander is no exception and we are very pleased with this tool and expect many years of service from it.

I bought this inexpensive product because I only need it for a few small projects. It fit my needs. Be careful when buying replacement sanding pads. I bought the wrong ones. They need to have the holes and be "lock and fit". I bought ones with sticky backs. That doesn't work because the product's pad is similar to Velcro. I did not like the dust catcher. It is made of material. The dust seeped right through it, and it was difficult to clean. I shook out the dust first, but the dust was stuck in the fabric, so I rinsed. Then the dust turned into mud. It vibrates a bit. You need to really hold on to it, and move it around, so it does not bevel out a piece of the wood you are working on. For me this was not a major issue because the furniture I was working on was very cheap. I was not looking for a professional look. I just needed to get it sanded in order to repaint. So, overall: loved the price, hated the dust collector.

I got this for my 16 year old daughter to be able to finish a project sooner than if she sanded by hand. It did an excellent job, but it would have been even better if we'd had more experience so we'd know that the degree of pressure would make a difference. Our fault - not the sander's! It worked well, and fast. The only drawback was the bag - it didn't catch all the dust so we had a lot of cleaning to do afterward. Sanding jobs should probably take place outside. It was too dark and cold for that however. I look forward to doing more sanding with this - soooo much easier than sandpaper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great, very affordable. Bought the sander a couple of months ago, we were able to sand down a baby crib for my granddaughter and it was a time saver and the results were not bad at all. Last week I started to sand out my deck for a repainting job. Working great, the only bad thing I could see was the position of the off switch. Several times when I would try to reach out and/or switch hand position I would accidentally power the sander off. But that was just me nitpicking at a real small issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! We just took some paneling off of our walls in our home that we bought in August. Who put them up was a little trigger happy on the liquid nails. A patch job was needed big time. I knew I would need more than just sand paper. This sander has been a dream! Could not ask for a smoother sander. It’s been so easy that I’ve let my five and two year old daughters have a try. Should have seen the smiles and heard the giggles! Thank you Ryobi!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! This sander has been a blessing! With redoing our floors we also took down the trim and paneling. Whenever the paneling had been put up, someone got a little trigger happy with the liquid nails on a few of the panels. This sander has been a dream while sanding down the trim and the pudding jobs on the drywall! So smooth that I've even let my 5 year and 2 year old daughters get a try.

Sanding on a truck. We initially purchased a Black & Decker orbital sander from another vendor. It lasted a day and quit working. This one is more powerful and has worked flawlessly. Dust collection system works pretty well. Easy on off bag. Love the hook/loop pad attachment system. Great product, great price.
