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

        Bought to sand panels on a cargo trailer in remote location w/o power.
        Ran longer than I thought it would per battery.
        Older 18v li / ion will not fit, due to new safety feature change. Not necessarily a bad thing.

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

          I got this sander as a Christmas gift.I did try it out and it works very well. No cords to worry about to plug into outlets. For small sanding jobs, it just great. Battery life is OK for small sanding work. For big sanding jobs a corded unit is the way to go. It certainly will be very useful in my work. I have many Makita cordless tools,amd I like them all. They all perform great!

          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.

            Do I get a hook and loop pad with the bare tool, or do I have to purchase one separately?

              I got the hook and loop pad with the bare too. I did order the extra hook and loop pad, to use when the original one wears out.

          Warranty

          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.
