Great ROS
After owning a DeWalt 5" R.O.S (no variable speed)and using a Bosch 5" R.O.S. I bought this tool and it is a step up from either of the afore mentioned tools. Why? I'll tell you, first the dust collection port is offset for extremely effective dust direction to the bag, while removing the bag reveals two (1-1/4" & 1-1/2") vacuum hose ports for maximal dust capture. This simple curved offset alone speaks for the thought that went into the design of this tool. I've used it for drywall, wood finish/refinish and for smoothing out an existing 5'x 5' mortar bed (w/ "resin" discs) and it owned those jobs. What else? 5 year warranty, variable speed, hook `n loop pad, double wrapped cord, tough plastic case...nuff said.

Excellent Sander
After several years of hard use, my porter cable 333 palm sander finally died. I was shocked when I
discovered that it was no longer available, so I went online and compared the major brands of
palm sanders. I decided to go with the Milwaukee and I am not disappointed. The sander is quiet,
powerful and of course I love the hook and loop sandpaper system as it allows my to change
paper in a flash. I also really like the fact the you can connect two diameters of vacuum hose.
I can use this sander in a room and create very very little dust when a vacuum hose is attached.

Great product and fantastic value
This is a high quality product at a great value. Only used it once, but it's clearly a product that's built to last ... just like my other Milwaukee equipment.

A sander that loves punishment
This sander is an absoluter workhorse! From the day it arrived at my door it has been brutally punished sanding down aluminum plates with 60 grit paper, it hasn't even hesitated. As for dust control, it has a hard time collecting the aluminum in the dust bag because the fine particles created during the sanding process are too heavy (heavier than wood which it should have no issue vacuuming up). I am not marking it down for this as sanding metal is not it's intended purpose.

I will gladly buy another
this product satisfies almost all of my sanding needs from heavy to fine. The grip is comfortable and the action is smooth. I have had similar sanders from other companies and this sander is more user friendly than the rest. It is stronger and quieter while easily doing whatever I ask of it. I highly recommend this sander.
