Price Available

Must buy proper sanding discs otherwise the vac holes do not match up. Seems to be made for small tight spaces only. I have an orbital sander but I need this this one for small areas. Bought this to help me in rebuilding a deck. I may purchase another Extremely satisfied with this sander.

The fact is that the Ryobi P411 was the Ryobi Sanders that we graded the highest. That being said, there are a few other superb selections when it comes to Ryobi Sanders. We have them for you here.

Ryobi is another top producer of Sanders. They build the tool next on our lineup. Ryobi's Detail Sanders are great as well. I was eager to try out the model P401 and I was not disappointed!

The Ryobi P401 Detail Sander, at $39.94 is an especially excellent Sander for the price. If you unsure about our top selection, I'd consider the Ryobi P401 next. It's a high quality tool at a good price.

Ryobi P401 Features

11,000 ORBITS PER MINUTE helps result in virtually non-swirl finishes

PERFECTLY SHAPED FOR CORNERS with intuitive design

COMFORTABLE OVERMOLD provides a solid grip so that you can sand precisely and comfortably

ON BOARD DUST PORT allows you to attach your favorite shop vacuum (not included)

PART OF THE ONE+ FAMILY: This will work with Ryobi’s 18v One+ battery. Even the yellow Ryobi 18 Volt batteries will work

Besides the option we already included, I would definitely check out the Ryobi P440 and the CFS1503GK by Ryobi. Both tool brands are known for their top quality Sanders. both of these distinct options enjoy very good end user reviews also. Real customers awarded the Ryobi an rating on average of 4.4/5 stars. Compare that to the CFS1503GK which boasts an average score of 4.3/5 stars.

The P440 by Ryobi offers several really premium features such as RUBBERIZED HEX GRIP: Maintain complete control over your palm sander with the textured rubber grip. This increases friction between the tool and your hand, allowing you to handle it in slippery conditions. The CFS1503GK by Ryobi however, is very competitive with COMPACT DESIGN AND UNIQUE SHAPE allows you to dig into tight corners for flooring or stair sanding and even KEEP A COMFORTABLE GRIP with the rubber overmolding on top of the unit than increases friction between it and your hand. This lets you work effectively even in slippery conditions.

I can easily endorse either of these Ryobi Sanders

When I stop pressing down, the sander turns off. Very nice of them to include a 80 grit sheet. Overall I'm really pleased with this little sander. Save me money, do the job well and look good. The suction fan on this sander does all of the work.

I draped the entry to do my front door and still had dust everywhere. This sander is a life saver if you need to get into tight spots. Will be giving GMC another look when I need some more tools. Ryobi makes a great product at a good price point. I may purchase another Extremely satisfied with this sander.

  • (39 Points)

Great durable machine with power and variable speed. It is a pleasure to use, and does a great job. If dust bothers you, wear a filter mask. Great tool works and feels good to use. After the second or third try, it might decide to stay on.

6. Ryobi P450 Belt Sander

  • (27 Points)

It is very maneuverable and the dust catcher works great also. Average priced tool, light weight easy to handle with one hand. I was greatly impressed with how heavy duty this item is. Also take a short break every 15 minutes to let belt cool off. The tracking is easy to adjust and holds well once set.

Rotating the bag so the zipper is on top, helps. I am sure it would be fine for the average man. Note, it does not fit central vac hoses. Sandpaper loading is very well designed. This is enough to generally give one pause.

It held up and kept up with the Ryobi. It is a pleasure to use, and does a great job. If you need a new sander, buy this one. Wow, once the tool gets in it's rhythm it really sings. Catches a lot of the dust and easy to empty.

  • (7 Points)

This flimsy locking mechanism should be improved. It has a good solid feel and the weight keeps it running smooth. Worked fine if one used a hand to set the lock. While the product was what I expected for the price. Machine speed is 1725 RPM and this works very well.
