I'm a DIYer so this is exactly what I needed. Like it says in the instruction manual - don't push down. I am starting to sense a pattern with my Bosch 18v tools. 5 years but we literally run this thing into the ground. 4 stars because it doesn't hook to my shop vac.

Bosch ROS65VC-6 Final Thoughts
"Bosch quality air tool."
The larger buffers are good for boats and trucks. The price is right and the tool works great. If dust bothers you, wear a filter mask. I really don't know why it sands so poorly. I did make some low spots on the table with that sander.
