Random Orbit Sander

Brought this sander as a standby, really impressed with everything apart from the lenght of the power cord, which even when at a bench it struggles to get to the end of my piece of wood before it runs out and i have to turn the board. would i buy another? most likley as it is a good machine.

Makita Quality = Top Reliability & Performance

This the second Makita machine I get [also have a 115mm angle grinder]. I really like Makita, their machines are sturdy, built to last and perform very well. This orbital sander is no exception. It is a pleasure to work with, vibration is minimal, even at high speeds. It is not too heavy so you can handle the job well and easy. It can sand anything. I have sanded high spec reproduction Georgian and Regency furniture right from bringing out the grain to perfect - and I mean PERFECT - smooth finish, ready for staining and finishing. Fit it with a pad and bonnet and it will also polish the final wax if this is the preferred finish on top of your lacquer, French polish or even Polyvinyl water-based varnish. Fit it with really rough and tough sandpaper and you can use it just as easily to grind down woodchip paper, ready to get soaked. Perfect to peel off the walls, easy task. This machine is versatile, does the job truly well. For the price, I can't see how anyone could go wrong. Buy one!

The best sander I've owned

Although I've had several hand sanders over the years, this is my first random orbit sander. The improvement in both speed and finish over other sanders has really surprised me. I've found that very low pressure (just enough to guide the sander around) works best. It's never once gauged or scored a workpiece, but still manages to remove material quickly when needed. I mostly use it with dust extraction, which is easy because of the long, round extraction pipe. Even the little bag, on the rare occasions I've used it, does a surprisingly good job of catching dust. The ergonomics are great, and I love the adjustable side handle. I agree that the cable could be longer, but it's such a joy to use that it seems churlish to mark it down for that. All in all, I'd recommend this little device to anyone.

I got one of these as a replacement for a Dewalt model that was stolen from the back of my van.
It is superior to the Dewalt in just about every way. MUCH better switch, grip is good with optional side handle and it feels smoother running - I think it may even be a tad quieter.
The only downside is the length of the lead - it's so short that even with the sander plugged into my festool extractor at my feet I couldn't reach the top of the wardrobe doors I'd just installed!
It's a faff to have to use an extension lead every time the sander comes out so I'm going to have to fit a longer lead myself.
What a shame for an otherwise great product.

Random orbit

Bought this sander to finish a box with inlay. Using a fine sanding disc it has produced a super smooth surface. The variable speed makes this a very versatile machine. Shame I bought from another supplier at more cost.
