Makita’s BO6050J dual action sander gives the options of using a single tool for a variety of tasks. For finish sanding or buffing, select the random orbit mode. In this mode the motion of the pad is orbital action with weak free-rotation. The alternative roto-orbit mode is best for coarse sanding or polishing. The motion of the pad is a combination of orbital action with aggressive forced rotation. The electronic controls give you a soft start and variable speed control, whilst the integral constant speed control maintains rotational speed under working load. The tool body has a comfort grip and a side handle to provide complete control. Abrasive discs or polishing pads attach to the pad using hook and loop. A slim skirt around the pad lets you work in tight spaces. The removable dust extraction spout allows connection to a vacuum extractor. Supplied with a type 3 MAKPAC connector case

Shame on MAKITA!This newer model is a full step BACKWARDS compared to the excellent BO6040 now discontinued! The evidently ignorant "designer" of this model has no idea that the older model was much better, as it was lower overall and gave much better stability and precisión in handling. Sometimes, a really good design appears... and then stupid designers replace it with a LOWER level design. There is a very true statement: If it is not broken... DON'T FIX IT!.
