Spend the money and buy it - you will not regret it. Wow this bad boy eats bondo This is an exellent 8 inch da. That helps to minimize the muscle tiredness factor. I run my HF sander a few minutes and it gets hot. Vibration is very low so user fatigue will not be a issue.

The truth is that the Makita BO4556 was the Makita Sanders that we ranked the highest. However, there were a few other really premium quality Makita Sanders worth showcasing here that just barely missed first place.

Makita is an additional top maker of Sanders. They make the tool next up on our lineup. Makita's Random Orbital Sanders are great as well. I was excited to have a go at the model BO5041K and I was not disappointed!

It is powerful and I like that it has variable speeds. For the price, all things considered, this is a good value. I find this one to be a vast improvement over the Makita. This has been an issue with a few of my Makita tools. I Recently bought a property and needed a great sander.

I just bought a house and it needed to be redo my back patio. For the price, all things considered, this is a good value. I am a finish carpenter and use my sanders constantly. If I had to choose one I'd take the Makita over this model. Great value vs similar, more expensive belt sanders.

I just wore out my second Makita sander and bought a third. Like it says in the instruction manual - don't push down. It was meh, and made my job pretty difficult. This sander is far superior to the Makita I had. Vibration is average for a sander in this class.

I highly recommend for home Makita for occasional use. About a half hour of effort after identifying the problem. When I used the Makita belts I had not problems with shredding. Also take a short break every 15 minutes to let belt cool off. Lots of good sandpaper later and I'm thrilled with the result.

And it comes with the dust bag which some don't. It's a decent quality tool for a great price. I also love that I can get rubber pads cheaply. Cost less than local and had quick shipping. Fell off saw horse and would not come back on.
