      Comments about 18V Cordless LXT Lithium-Ion 5 in. Random Orbit Sander (Bare Tool):

      I have a tool box that goes on site with me and this was a good addition, however the dust bag is a pressure fit arrangement and vibrates off during sanding :( . Will need to put a screw to it or clamp. Otherwise very happy with the tool. its on off switch is nice because it's more difficult to accidently turn it off during use then my rigid orbitals.

      Comments about 18V Cordless LXT Lithium-Ion 5 in. Random Orbit Sander (Bare Tool):

      I have been waiting a long time for this baby. I have used many different corded versions of these machines. Having no cord in the way is a great improvement. One can concentrate better without distraction. It is more powerful than I thought it would be, and I use it mostly on the middle and low speeds. With fine paper, I just let it glide around and just gently tilt it, to steer it to the place to be sanded. Quality construction and design. The battery mounts well and balances the unit. The noise level is a not too high, but I still wear hearing protection. I really like Makita's attention to design, functionality and the teal color. I have Makita cordless power tools that I bought back in 1986, that have seen heavy use, and they are still operating very well. Take good care of your cordless power tools and let them cool down when they start to get hot, and they will last a long time. Have an interesting day.

        New Vs. 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.

        Warranty Information

        Makita Standard Warranty

        The Makita Standard Warranty applies to both new and factory-reconditioned Makita tools. Every Makita tool is thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving the factory. If you are not satisfied with any Makita tool within 30 days of purchase, return it and Makita will provide a replacement or refund. Each Makita tool is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of ONE YEAR from the date of original purchase. Should any trouble develop during this one-year period, return the COMPLETE tool, freight prepaid, to one of Makita's Factory or Authorized Service Centers.

        If inspection shows the trouble is caused by defective workmanship or material, Makita will repair (or at its option, replace without charge).

        This Warranty does not apply where:
        • Repairs have been made or attempted by others
        • Repairs are required because of normal wear and tear
        • The tool has been abused, misused or improperly maintained
        • Alterations have been made to the tool
        In no event shall Makita be liable for any indirect, incidental or consequential damages from the sale or use of the product. This disclaimer applies to both during and after the term of this warranty. Makita disclaims liability for any implied warranties, including implied warranties of "merchantability" and "fitness" for a specific purpose, after the one-year term of this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
