Energer ENB593SDR Random Orbit Sander 230-240V
Great value sander
I bought this sander and was pleasantly surprised how well built it was. It's comfortable and has plenty of power too.

Great value for money
Chose this sander based upon price, reviews and that it seemed more powerful than other sanders which were more expensive from other retailers. Definitely more than happy with the sander, would definitely recommend.

Strange, but true ...
Don't let the resemblance to a distant relative of R2D2 put you off - this machine works very well, and the shape makes it easy to get into the tight spots that block other machines, and it's tremendous value, too.
Its low cost doesn't impair its sanding performance, which is helped by the variable speed control. However, it lacks the sophisticated contact-sensing of much more expensive units, so you need to engage carefully with the workpiece to avoid marking it as the disc comes down to working speed.
Using it for an hour-or-two leaves you with slightly tingly fingers, which probably makes it unsuitable for frequent or sustained use.

Good reliable sander
After receiving my sander I certainly put it through its paces sanding down 35 feet of hardwood work surface. I was very pleased with the unit. Unlike other sanders I have owned I didn't end up with a numb hand from the vibration after extended usage. I was somewhat sceptical of the dust filter expecting it to clog quickly and to back up onto the sanding surfaces. This was not the case.
