Rated 5 out of 5Â by fonic42 Good quality machine
I bought this to replace a similar Elu machine which lasted 25 years. Since De Walt bought Elu, I have no doubt this will last as long. Not had a chance to use it seriously yet but looks good so far.
My other De Walt tools have proved exceptionally reliable, including a radial arm saw still going strong after 42 years!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Col Best Palm Sander Available
Having purchased almost every brand of palm sander going including Festool I can honestly say the Dewalt has lasted the longest. I use them every day so they get some hammer and usually peg out after a couple of years. I've had my Dewalt for 5 or 6 years without problem. It has a large orbit so cuts through wood really quick and the dust extraction with a hoover attatched is very good. Cut sheets clamped on seem to stay in place better than any of the others i have had previously as well. Highly recomended

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Shaftesbury Om off switch inadequate
My previous near identical model lasted for more than 10 years. Now DeWalt has changed the on/off switch for a cost reduced component. New switch is not easy to operate and far less positive. Often after switching off the machine it would restart after a couple of seconds.
I normally pay more for DeWalt than competitors as I considered DeWalt good value for money - long trouble free life.
Machine returned for refund
