      Comments about 5 in. VS Random Orbit Palm Sander Kit:

      Received one that looked immaculate but plug was bent, got a replacement quickly sent out but next one had long hairs and junk on the Velcro pad definately seemed used. I think the plug must have been replaced because it seemed unusually um it just seemed like wrong and was difficult to get back in the box. I bought sanding pads made for an 8 hole sander but no matter what grit pad I used or what speed I put it on 2 things happen.
      First I may be wrong but it seems like the slightest pressure makes the sanding pad sit still while the Velcro pad spins.
      Second I keep getting little circles it's obvious it's from the holes in the pads but it's annoying. I tried to sand a gouge from a wooden sofa table and spent most of my time sanding out millions of little circles.

      Solid tool

      By eztrigger

      from Houston, TX

      Comments about Bosch 5 in. VS Random Orbit Palm Sander Kit:

      I bought this sander because I was fed up with my cheap quarter sheet sander and hand sanding was just too slow.  Overall I am pleased with the performance so far.  Construction quality has a solid look and feel and the tool has not faltered in the time I've used it.  The built in dust collection seems to work pretty well, although I found the integrated filter slightly frustrating when emptying.  The plastic case is good as well, although I would like to see it in the L-Boxx style like my other bosch tools.  I also found the integrated paper alignment tool only works if the sand paper is perfectly flat, other wise, the paper sticks before it is aligned.  As others have noted, it seems that light pressure is best, so proper grit selection is critical to effective use of this tool.  Noise levels are quite low and the vibrations are comfortable.  All in all, I would probably buy this one again if I had to buy another one.

      Comments about 5 in. VS Random Orbit Palm Sander Kit:

      This is my first Random Orbit Sander, and it did not disappoint. It is built like a typical Bosch tool, that is solid and like a tank. It took about two uses on scrap to get used to how it works, and from then on it just did its job beautifully.

      The case has a place to help with mounting the discs on the sander so that the holes in the disc align perfectly with the holes in the backing pad. Nice touch, but not really needed. Putting the discs on was a breeze without the alignment thing.

      The dust collection system works pretty well. It seems to get about 90% to 95% of the dust and is easy to empty and clean. I haven't tried it with the vacuum adapter yet, but at least it comes with one.

      Great product!

      Comments about Bosch 5 in. VS Random Orbit Palm Sander Kit:

      This Bosch variable speed sander is comfortable to use with its low vibration and noise level. Also, the filter is quite effective in collecting dust which minimizes the amount of clean up. It's a pleasure to use compared to my old pad sander. For the money, this is the one to buy.

          No, since this product is a random orbit sander it's not suitable for use as a buffer.

      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.
