Features

The BOSCH® 5-Inch Variable Speed Random Orbit Sander keeps you in control while finishing a variety of surfaces. This tool uses a random orbit design that limits vibration and mitigates surface imperfections. It comes with a speed-dial and filtration system that sucks away particles of all sizes. This Bosch random orbit sander even collects the smallest particles, including those smaller than a single micron in size. The storage canister screws into the tool, so you can remove it whenever it needs to be cleared out. The variable speed sander uses a flexible backing pad that can support bumpy and grooved surfaces. Once you decide on the standard 8-hole disc you need for your project, the Hook-Tight™ system holds everything in place. The grip, located on top of the device, keeps your hand above the center of your working area while the unit rotates and orbits the sanding pad. This process works in conjunction with a unique braking system that prevents swirls and other imperfections when you finish the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets job done! I bought this based off other positive reviews and has lived up to expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY PLEASED I am very much pleased with the sander. It is comfortable to use, and does not pull away from the work area. The dust collector works very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow I've had many different sanders and this is the first that actually removes the dust. First day I sanded 12 board feet of rough cut pine for a table. To big for my planer or drum sander, this little sander did one heck of a job. Color me impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, quiet, powerful Bought this on sale from Acme to replace a 15 year old Porter Cable that finally died. So far, very happy. I was worried the rigid dust collector would get in the way, but that has not been a problem. Easy to hook up to a dust vac for painting prep, variable speed is more useful than anticipated for sanding paint and epoxy. Used it for several days working to smooth a new wooden spar for a 90' sailing ship, and it stayed cool and powered through it with no issues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice sander, vacuum attachment poorly implemented. First random orbital sander. First sander I have purchased in 20 years. The unit is easy to use but it fills up the attached dust chamber very quickly. Snapping that cover off and on many times will probably shorten its life. I would rather hook up my shop vac to it. Unfortunately the adapter they provide simply slides on, with no 'catch' of any kind. The catch on the dust chamber is terrific, locks in very solid. That appears to be because there is a detent of some sort built into the inside of the dust chamber connection. When I use my shop vac, it slides off within seconds (no detent on the supplied adapter). It is unusable in this configuration. I called their support line (very nice people). They too had the same issue I did so they reported it to the 'engineers'. The engineers said theirs works fine so I guess nothing will be done to fix this. I was sent a new adapter and o-ring but its the same that came with the unit. I will look for another brand soon. If your sanding needs are minimal then this is a decent product. But if you sand a lot and you want to control dust in your shop, look elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little less power, but better made than Milwaukee I bought this at the same time I bought a 5" Milwaukee sander to compare the two (I run a community woodworking shop, so we need a lot of sanders). When I first took them out of the box and tested them side by side the only real difference was the Milwaukee had a little more power (3 amps vs 2.5 amps on the Bosch) so I thought Milwaukee all the way - why not when they are the same price? In less than two weeks the Milwaukee stopped turning on. It was a five minute fix to take it apart and clean the switch (which was full of sawdust) but it shouldn't have had an issue in the first place. It's been two months now since I bought these two, and the Bosch has had zero issues. This sander is used daily for 2 - 3 hours and still working like a champ. When I outfit the rest of the shop with new orbital sanders I'll choose Bosch - And I'll get them at Acme Tool, these folks are excellent. Just go for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I got this as a christmas present from my wifeet and I love all of the feathers it has on it. The vacuum attachment option is awesome and I really like how it comes with a high quality filter for sanding clear coats/chemical epoxy etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value. Comfortable to hold. Used it several times to both strip old finishes and sand new projects. So far I'm pleased with my purchase.
