Makita BO4555/2 Â¼ Palm Sander 240V
Handy little sander
I bought this to replace an old bosch green one i have had for years that finally gave up, i couldnt be happier the power ratio is superb it helps conplete jobs in less than half the time it would take to do by hand which is awesome when your non stop busy, only downside is its in a cardboard box so might get abit battered in the back of the van could of done with a rigid preform case

Concave base plate
This was my first palm sander and after seeing the reviews on this product I went for it. Unfortunately I was really disappointed and had to take the item back... Twice! Both times the base plate was not completely flat, I.e. slightly concave therefore the complete surface of the sandpaper would not make uniform contact with the mating surface. I'm not sure if this is a common problem with palm sanders in general however I thought this was unacceptable, especially as this item is one of the more expensive sanders. Back to the drawing board to look for another brand. Oh and screwfix were awesome as usual and gave a full refund, no arguments...

Good piece of kit.
Usual Mak quality, powerful little thing. Great that it uses decorator's roll sized paper so no expensive replacement sheets. Recommended. Not had it long enough to test reliability, but with a three year guarantee, Makita must be confident that it will keep on trucking , and so am I.

Very good Palm Sander
Product is very well built and performs well. Sandpaper on a roll can be used as well as preformed.
