The sander is light and saved us hours of time. I didn't really feel like I needed ear protection. Covers a large area fast, dust collection pretty good. I also liked the extra sandpaper that was included. The suction fan on this sander does all of the work.
Bosch GSS20-40 Features & Specs
The Bosch GSS20-40 Orbital Finishing Sander was engineered for sanding surfaces with very tight orbital motions. It is driven by an advanced high speed electrical motor with a powerful capacity of 2.0 amps and 12,000 oscillations per minute.
This orbital sander, also known as a palm sander, includes a precision-machined aluminum sanding plate developed for even sanding and long-lasting durability that will add the perfect finishing touch to all of your woodworking projects.
The GSS20-40 features a dust collection system that provides a micro-filter dust canister with a screw-off cap. This efficient system optimizes dust collection by extracting all dust through the pad--ranging from coarse to fine particles.
The soft-grip was designed with a functional focus. This ensures low-vibration and provides stable handling for secure user control. The ergonomics of the sander enhances comfort for the user and long-term applications.
The sander provides a reliable clamping and pad design that accepts multiple sanding sheets including stick-on paper. The sander offers flush sanding, which provides the user with a different array of applications for all project needs.

Bosch GSS20-40 Final Thoughts
When I stop pressing down, the sander turns off. Very nice of them to include a 80 grit sheet. I like that it fits perfectly in my small hand. Sandpaper loading is very well designed. That means fewer scratches and a smoother finish.
