It is very maneuverable and the dust catcher works great also. The brushes are replaceable in the event that they wear out. All the others died completely after about a floor and a half. I will have no problem buying from this seller again! Pair with the new 9ah batteries it's well worth the money.

The Makita XOB01Z was our preferred Cordless Sanders. However, there were a handful of other very high quality Cordless Sanders worth showcasing here that only just missed first place.

PORTER-CABLE is an additional top manufacturer of Sanders. They produce the tool next on our lineup. PORTER-CABLE's Belt Sanders are no exception. It was terrific to test the 352VS. I was very happy with this tool!

The model 352VS Belt Sander by PORTER-CABLE, at $169.00 is a particularly exceptional Sander for the money. If you uncertain about our top selection, I'd check out the PORTER-CABLE 352VS next. It's a high quality tool at a terrific price.

Besides the option we researched above, I would definitely take a look at the BDCMS20C by BLACK+DECKER and the DEWALT DCW210B. Both BLACK+DECKER and DEWALT are known for their top quality Sanders. Each of these two tools enjoy terrific customer ratings as well. Customers gave the BDCMS20C an rating on average of 4.2/5 stars. Contrast that to the DCW210B which boasts an average score of 4.6/5 stars.

The BLACK+DECKER BDCMS20C has a few features you wont find on other similar Detail Sanders. For example The 20V max* Mouse sander brings cordless convenience to the Mouse heritage. The DCW210B by DEWALT however, is tough to beat featuring Variable speed to match the speed to the application plus Texturized rubber overmold grip for more comfortable sanding.

Both of these couple options are an exceptional decision for someone whose in the market for Cordless Sanders

I realize it's called a palm sander but it feels awkward. Seems to be made for small tight spaces only. I have an orbital sander but I need this this one for small areas. Use a file if desired to smooth the edges on both surfaces. Even the ones recommended to purchase with it don't properly fit.

And make sure you snap it back on front and back of lid. Works great, easy to use and comes with sand paper. I am starting to sense a pattern with my DEWALT 18v tools. It has done everything I have needed it to do. This DEWALT Sander appears to be a quality tool.

I'm a DIYer so this is exactly what I needed. It's not a beast but it is a good mid-size sander. That helps to minimize the muscle tiredness factor. I bought this and upon using it my mind was blown again. I was seriously shocked how quiet this machine was.

I realize it's called a palm sander but it feels awkward. We have an arbor that needed to be sanded, primed and painted. It works like a dream and so easy for me to operate. Ryobi makes a great product at a good price point. I may purchase another Extremely satisfied with this sander.

Not cheap, but much better than the pain. Granted, if you need the full power, it will consume air. Great super and great price Just what I needed. As for its sanding capability, it sands quite fast. I was seriously shocked how quiet this machine was.

I see that some people are dinging this for producing dust. It is a pleasure to use, and does a great job. I read all the reviews and bought this one. This sander is far superior to the PORTER-CABLE I had. Beyond that, I like the tool and does the job.

I've had my US built Milwaukee for 20 years. I may just not be emptying it soon enough. You can purchase the Velcro style backer here on amazon. It has done everything I have needed it to do. Prior to this, I was doing the polishing by hand.

Must buy proper sanding discs otherwise the vac holes do not match up. Seems to be made for small tight spaces only. The flush/finish base is very good as well. PORTER-CABLE makes a great product at a good price point. I had purchased a mouse sander locally and was very upset with it.
