Review:

To my surprise, this sander works very well, definitely has been speeding up my projects, and feels like it has been made of good quality. With that said, since this is a brand I had never heard of before, once it breaks, I will probably be buying a brand-name sander unless this one lasts for years. Only time will tell, but so far I am pleasantly surprised and happy with it.

This sander allows users to find the perfect speed for whatever task they need to complete, with an optimal on-board system for filtering fine dust.

Review:

Sanding with 80 grit on plywood, with the dust basket, it worked very well. It still left a lot of dust on the surface, but not in the air. I then hooked it up with the vacuum attachment and there was almost no dust at all. I also noticed that the sandpaper didn’t load up very much with the vacuum. I like the case as it has a pad alignment tool built in as well as places for extra parts. It’s also very solid. I’d recommend it over the soft carry case.

Review:

Very nice palm sander. Removes stock as well as any I’ve seen. The dust collector bag is really effective. I pushed it in place, gave it a twist to tighten it and it did a great job of catching the dust. You’ll need to used the plastic plate with the pins to punch holes in the paper, (after the paper is loaded on the sander). Otherwise, It probably wouldn’t collect dust nearly as well.

4. Milwaukee Electric Tools 2648-21 M18 Random Orbit Sander Kit

The 7, 000-12, 000 variable speed dial allows the user more control over the output of the tool to match the orbit speed for the application. The tool’ s powerful motor allows the user to remove more material per battery charge. The m18™ Random orbit sander powered by redlithium™ battery technology delivers up to 35 minutes of run-time on a m18™ 3.0Ah battery pack.

Review:

Trying to use this for more than 5min introduced hand fatigue like no other orbital. It also gets away from you quite easy if you don’t use a firm grip at all times as the balance doesn’t translate into the user’s hand. I’ll stick with my corded which is much easier to get pro results.
