  • 5 in. VS Palm Random Orbit Sander Kit


    First of all, I really need to know is the Bosch is as good as they say it is and why isn't their warranty as good as the Ridgid products? Please answer this question for me, as this would be for my wife and I don't want a lot of grief from her over this sander.
    Thanks You much,

    • A:

      Short answer, yes. To elaborate, I own Rigid, Milwaukee, Makita, and Bosch sanders of this type (5" RA). I hate the Makita (never been able to keep the disks from flying off), don't care much for the Milwaukee (powerful, but very hard to control), really like the Rigid, and love the Bosch. I'll probably purchase the Dewalt in the next 6 months so that I can be sure that have the best 5" RA sander out there. I would rate the Bosch a little higher than the Rigid, but not by much. The Rigid seems to be a bit more powerful and agressive. It's relatively easy to control. The Bosch, while not as agressive, is the easiest of all these RA sanders to use. There's very little vibration to deal with, unlike the Makita and Milwaukee sanders. Although I feel the Bosch edges out the Rigid, its not by much. If I had to choose, I would go with whom ever has the better deal at the time.

      Yes, the Bosch would be a better quality unit than the Ridgid. Ridgid only does a lifetime warranty on their New units, which can only be purchased in Home Depot.

    How many holes does it have for the sanding disks? Do you have to buy Bosch sanding disks?

      This Bosch sander requires standard 5" 8-hole hook & loop disks, not PSA disks. These are the only requirements for properly fitting sanding disks, so find the best disk at the best price with these specs.

      There are eight holes. The sander takes PSA backed sanding disc. No, you do not need to just purchase Bosch discs. Just as long as the discs have 8 holes and are PSA, they can be used.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
