A great buyI've had this sander for a year now so you could say I've put it through it's paces, and I must say I think it's great. It's got great weight, which I like, yet is incredibly ergonomic. I use it with it's small extraction bag (instead of hooking it up to the shop vac), and just vacuum out the contents when needed.

Great sander!I´ve been a sceptic to random orbit sanders but was curious and bought this Makita after reading a few reviews. Not a sceptic anymore - it´s excellent at its task. A plained board will be smooth, nice and shiny after a short run with 60,120 and 240 grit. Variable speed and a suprisingly low noise level. Dust extraction is good too, nothing more to ask for.
