Rated 4 out of 5Â by BringBackNT titan random orbit santer
I've been using a earlier model for many years without much trouble but it finally died and I got this one because the innards look the same and I believe in the old adage 'if it works don't fix it'. Only time will tell but if it's anything like the last one the only thing I'll be buying are sanding disks.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by rjcc Pads don't stick
Seemingly well made if a touch on the heavy side but for Â£40 this is to be expected. Plenty powerful enough but the main issue came after a few hours of use when the pads wouldn't stay stuck for more than a couple of minutes. Have used a variety of sanding discs of various prices and all exhibit the same issue. Note - have several Titan products and have loved them all bar this one.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Aldi76 2nd one just failed...
As a big fan of the Titan range I was highly impressed with this sander - it did exactly what I wanted it to and made the tedious task of sanding walls, ceilings and wood a pleasure, however my first sander failed after 9 months - it had a fair bit of use in a home improvement project but not enough to warrant it failing.
As per the Titan 2 year warranty I had the sander replaced with absolutely no fuss at my local store, unfortunately the replacement has now failed with exactly the same fault (bearing collapse? vibrates wildly and sounds like gravel in a washing machine!), this one has barely seen any use.
I've lost confidence in this as a product and would recommend putting a few quid more in for another brand. As for the Titan brand itself, my other tools have done a sterling job and more than earned their keep but i'm afraid this random orbital sander really doesn't stand up to the job!

Bought this on basis of reviews and they are not wrong. Sturdy, powerful and versatile, I have used this to do both rough to fine fine sand, works really well. Dust collection really efficient too. I'm sure if I'd paid Â£50 more I would not have got a much better sander.
