Features

Get a smoother, swirl-free sanding finish with the disc-attachment, pad-dampening and pad-backing features of the BOSCH® 5-inch random-orbit sander. Mount the discs more firmly with a Hook-Tight™ hook-and-loop system, which has up to twice the amount of hooks than other available random-orbit sanders. Use the Bosch palm sander's pad-dampening system to slow the movement of the sander as you lift it from the surface. Apply a cushioned touch to both flat and contoured pieces with the disc's soft micro-cellular backing pad. The sander tackles coarse sanding just as well, with a strong 2.5-Amp motor that has variable-speed control to adjust RPMs to the density of the piece and the stage of finish. The Bosch variable-speed random-orbit sander also makes sanding work less labor-intense, with a soft-grip top and multiple grip positions to keep hands relaxed and steady, and a tightly constructed body to reduce vibration. Keep work areas cleaner and safer with the sander's dust canister with dust-level indicator, an anti-spillback system that keeps dust moving away from the sander and a microfilter that traps particles 1/2 micron or larger. The sander can equip a variety of Bosch Airsweep™ accessories as well as pads and discs.

  • Variable-speed sander has a microcellular backing pad to provide a softer sanding touch
  • 2.5-Amp motor is strong enough for coarse sanding
  • Variable-speed sander dial adjusts RPM to wood density and finishing stage

Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome dust collection I purchased this Bosch ROS over a year ago and I'm glad I did. The sander is easy to use and the dust collection is awesome. Whether you attach a shop vac, dust extractor, or the included filter the dust left by this sander is minimal at best. Sanding is messy business and you can never get completely away from the dust but this sander is as close as I have ever used. If you purchase this Bosch ROS20VSC you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable Excellent sander. This is currently my only sander and I use it for everything. I used it last year to sand a 20" x 25" deck before staining. Never once over heated or stopped working. The dust canister needs to be cleaned out often. There is no shield for the pad so if you get to close to pieces it can either get damaged or damage material you might not want damaged.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what I need I've had this sander now for about 4 years, and it has held up well under use. Now, it is a 5" sander, so if you're finishing a lot of surfaces and starting with a low grit, you'll save time with larger, more powerful sanders. But for the small work I do it's great. The tool is well built and comfortable to use: no excess vibration, comfortable grip, doesn't run away from you. The one complaint I have is the dust container. It slides off and on easily, but removing the black cover to clean it out is a right pain. I typically have to use a screwdriver to pry it open. All said, if you're in the market for a small finish sander, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sander I bought this sander almost a year ago. I have used it for many different projects and love its results/feel. Dust collection works great and does an excellent job with rough thru finish sanding. Bought a second sander this last fall even.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get what you pay for! I research numerious ROS for it seemed like months and finally got this with a gift card I got for Christmas and am really impressed. Have always had the quarter sheet sanders and this sander is in a completely different catigory. Quiet, powerful yet easy to handle and the best dust collection I've seen. I also have a Bosch jigsaw that is equally above all other brands. I will definitely save my money and buy more Bosch brand tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SMOOth-running Bought the Bosch because I was unhappy with another brand of ROS. SO glad I did! Like night/day as to quiet, smooth running and stock removal. Dust bag a lot better, too.
