A real time saver for smaller jobs!
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.
Great for small jobs, any large projects I would suggest corded tool. Battery lasts about 20 min.
