Excellent piece of kit. I've used a lot of sanders in my time and this is better than every one I've used, it's really handy for skirtings, architraves and doors. Pads last a long time with no clogging.

I have used this for a while now for various jobs on both old and new wood stock and it has turned out to be a worthwhile purchase. Using for long periods is great as the vibration is minimum and it's quieter when compared to other cheaper sanders I have used. Leaves an excellent finish and make easy work of a dull and usually labourious job.
Benefitting from both hook & loop or clamps to hold the sand paper in place securely. The unit is supplied with a plastic template punch which pierces the sandpaper in the right places so the vacuum function operates correctly, as well as some sand papers of various grits. I use mine with the sandpaper rolls that screwfix sell and just cut it down to approx size, changing the paper is quick.
As expected from makita the build quality is excellent and proving very strong and durable. I also registered it on the makita website for a three year warranty which is another bonus. The cord is also very good quality and has not gone stiff even though it is stored outside in my cold workshop.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good sander for professional or hobby use.
