Rated 2 out of 5 by A few reservations I'm a huge Makita fan and use lots of their powertools. This one is good with a couple of reservations. 1. Flex is too short 2. Dust bag next to useless. 1. The flex is brilliant quality but far too short. This means if you're sanding above chest height, say a wall, you'll need to hold or support an extension or reel. This is awkward. 2. The supplied tiny fabric dustbag is not the same as the one shown in the instructions. The amount of dust flung out from the fan is phenomenal! Wear a mask and expect a mess. After doing all the walls in a room, the dustbag was quarter full and the room was completely fogged up with airborne dust. I'll try connecting a vacuum next time as the bag is pointless. Performance & finish is absolutely excellent though and the disks swap easily. 2 Oct 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product The Makita Orbital sander is very nice to work with. It is lightweight &has little vibration compared to most sanders and is also fairly quite. 13 Mar 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good for all uses so far! Have been using this product around the house, doing various DIY jobs. It has helped and functioned well preparing wood for painting, sanding doors, stripping floorboards, and anything else I can throw at it. It is typical Makita colour and functions as you would expect from that brand. Sounds good and doesn't vibrate too much when being used. 24 Feb 2015
