Top 4 Best 1/2 Sheet Sanders

What Real People Are Saying About The TACKLIFE PSS02A-US

This is one wonderful tool!!

I have been using sanders for well over 30 years. When my my old 1/3 sheet sander quit I looked at what was now available , only to become somewhat confused with all the new 1/4 sanders and the very few 1/3 sanders now available. I decided to take a chance on this new 1/2 sheet sander, as the price was reasonable. It surpassed all my expectations, is light , easy to use and cuts my sanding time in half!
The only complaint I have, is that the availability of pre made sanding sheets is limited to only 120 grit. It is no real issue to cut my own from full sheets, and they work perfectly well, I do hope the handier pe-made ones do come about soon.

Decent sander for the money.

Honestly with a shop full of high end tool I didn't know what to expect but with 39 hardwood cabinet doors to refinish I thought I'd give it a try. This guy works great. It runs smooth and removes material reasonably quickly. OK, it's build quality is not mirka or festool but neither is the price. My mirka deros was nearly $600.00. The only problem I encountered was the dust bin kept falling off but I use a vacuum with an auto switch so who cares, I don't use it anyway. In the end after 4 days of constant, hard use this guy held its own. I'll use it again and again anytime my 6" and 5" RO sanders can't get into corners. I give it 5 stars for function and 3 stars for build quality. Final note, there are many reviews regarding replacement paper. I use mirka abranet hook loop which comes in rolls. Set the sander on it and cut off the length with a razor knife. It's an abrasive net so dust collection works great no clogs.

Pricewise, this was just what I needed for a small project.

I got this for a little project I have been working on and so far so good. I came with a little bit of sandpaper but i used the built in straps to use my own. I saw some reviews complaining about finding the right size but it has clips so as long as you have pieces that are long enough you can just clamp them in, not a big deal at all. It is nice with the vacuume type thing, helped keep things a little cleaner while I was using it in my shop. The spead dial is cool, but i just alwasy turn it up to full blast personally.
It is a little heavy, to heavy for my wife to use comfortably for a long period of time but for me it was fin and felt fine to use. Overall I am super happy with this inexpensive sander and it was just what I needed in my tool collection.

Great tool to use for sanding walls
  • Kei - February 16, 2019

Used the tool to do a quick sand job on a paint job. After I finished patching some of the holes in the walls, I used this sander to quickly smooth the walls down. Tool was super big and super heavy -- it did the job but my arms were sore afterwards. I liked how it had an extra case that collected all the dust from the sanding, so I didn't have to deal with breathing in too much of the sandy air. Would have definitely liked it if it was cordless, but since I'm an amateur painter, I did not think of this until I started using the machine and realized how annoying the cord was. Use an extension cord for more convenience in moving around the room but ideally, a cordless sander would work much more better.

Easy to change paper
  • Linda - September 28, 2018

This sander has power like you wouldn't believe. 6 different speed levels also. Love the dust collector bin, that is easily removed to clean. To switch out the sandpaper is definitely an easy job, with a kind of Velcro attachment on it, it makes changing a breeze. Sander came just in time for me to work on one of my new furniture projects. I covered sanding a lot of wood in a short time.

Aside from the option we already included, I would definitely evaluate the BO4900V by Makita and the PSS02A by TACKLIFE. Both Makita and TACKLIFE are considered two of the top manufacturers of quality Sanders. both of these particular options earned terrific user ratings as well. The BO4900V received a rating of 4.4/5 as compared to 4.1/5 star rating given to the TACKLIFE PSS02A.

The Makita BO4900V has several features you might not get on competing Finishing Sanders. One example is Power Tools and Accessories.
