Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 9reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Durable, comfortable, and dependable This sander does a great job of removing planer marks and general sanding of fairly large surfaces. This thing is durable.... I have dropped it off my work bench several times and even once it made it to the bottom of the stairs with no harm done. I have used this sander for very prolonged peroids of time with little hand fatigue. The pad has lasted an incredibly long time, with another brand I owned, the velcro on the pad got sticky and fell off within a few months of use. The only con I can think of is that it is a bit loud, but so are other brands of similar design. January 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome Sander Great tool, does everything it says it does very well. If you have a Rigid brand shop vac you may have to buy an adapter if you want to hook it to that. After you buy that, it's perfect! March 25, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by decent sander I use this as a start to finish sander on may projects from chests to small items. I like the speed control and the large exhaust port. It seems to pick up a lot dust under its own power. The dust bag fills up quick. Not so great. Well it needs to be in constant contact with work surface even a little lift will cause the base to speed up to a unstable Rpm. and you need to shut off the unit let it stop spinning and put it on the material again start it up. considering the switch is not easy to always turn on or off. I do not know whose vacuum hoses they tried these on but they are the same size as my vacuum hoses either 2.25 or 1.25 same Diameter. I have not be able to find an adapter that does not take the size I need to hook this up to a dust collector without a 4 inch outport. October 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tried others in the past this is a good Taking on and off the dust control bag is easy and efficient. July 31, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor hook & loop pad Very poor hook and loop pad. Will be ordering a third pad after very short time of use. Hope they improve this replacement part. Sander attached to shop vac does control alot of the dust but only when the sanding disk isn't sailing across the room. Would not purchase this sander again. July 24, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by High maintenance The hook and loop pads do not last long. After 80-100 hours of use, I have replaced the pad twice, and now a bearing has failed. I would not buy this tool again. April 10, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good tool but trouble I was only able to complete one job with this sander before the hook n loop pad stopped holding the sandpaper. Now I have to buy a replacement pad. Not good when you consider Milwaukee' s "tool - reputation". I'll definitely buy a new sander, (not Milwaukee), from someone else. July 11, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Hook and loop pads wear out too fast. I've been using this tool for finish sanding of outdoor furniture and it's great except the hook and loop pad stopped holding pads after about 8 hours of heavy use. Replacements aren't expensive but unavailable from stores or the website and ordering through an authorized repair center takes 10 days so basically my project is on hold. If I was a professional, I'd be buying a new sander immediately and it wouldn't be from Milwaukee. June 26, 2012
