Great Little Sander
I bought one of these sanders when they first came out in the 70's when I was woodworking for a living. I have used it all these years until the sandpaper clip broke on one side after 40 years of use! I think this is the best quarter sheet sander made.

I purchased this sander to replace one like it which was stolen several months ago. The thief was so kind...stole the tool and left the case behind, so I am very happy this tool fits into the case.
I'm not a frequent user, but this tool does its job when I do use it. Easy to use and maintain.

A good work horse
Love this sander. Two improvements that would get it a five star rating are:
1. Make changing the sandpaper easier
2. Raise the dust bag so it doesn't rub on the work piece as easily
Otherwise it's solid sander that's great for detail.

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.

Each NEW Makita Lithium‐Ion Power Tool, Battery and Charger is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and materials for the period of THREE YEARS from the date of original purchase

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.
