FREE SHIPPING - DEWALT Heavy-Duty 5in. Random Orbital Sander Kit, Model# D26451K
Wow! Does an amazing job of sanding.
Look, I hate sanding. I almost always make a cursory attempt at it then just move on. But on reading the description of this gadget I thought I'd try one out.
Wow! This is the ticket! Magically this device sands in all directions at once without leaving any scratches. Changing sandpaper grit is as easy as pulling off one pad and sticking on another (hook & loop, so no glue or tape). You just cut the thing on and let it wander over your workpiece with mild hand pressure.
Like I said, I'm no sand man, so my bar is set pretty low, but I think this machine is amazing. I didn't even see any dust come off it (although the little bag was full of it when I took it off to clean).
Everyone should have one of these, and this particular model seems esp. nice. GET ONE.

sander works great
This sander for the money is a great value . I've owned multiple sanders over the years and I've had the best luck with this one . One issue that I've had and I can work around it but when the sander is on and not on a surface it will continue to speed up in rotation .

This sander is great and works very well. It has made a great addition to our shop. The second one is just as good. Ive had no problems with the sander. Its really durable. Its fell a couple of times but still works great.

Dewalt Orbital Sander
Great Sander for the money. I have owned and used several different brands of sanders. I like the Dewalt's dust collection and the hook and loop mounting for the sanding disks. I've put a lot of time on this sander with no problems and it does an excellent job of doing exactly what it is supposed to do... a great sanding job.

Great power, easy to control.
After I had borrowed my contractor's sander to refinish my mantlepiece, I came to truly appreciate the beauty of a good orbital sander. His was a Porter-Cable and ran like a dream, blasting through century-old mahagony stain in hardwood in seconds. I knew I had to give it back, but my love affair had begun and there were plenty of refinishing jobs ahead of me. The next orbital sander I used was a fairly beat-up Ryobi with self-stick pad (NOT recommended -- the pad failed long before the sander -- go with hook and loop!). After the Ryobi's pad surface proved too used to use again, I bought this Dewalt little beauty. Within minutes of its arrival, I had it out of the box, hooked up to my ShopVac, and sanding down my stair treads to prep for floor paint. It was a breeze, with little vibration and not too noisy! If I have a complaint, it might be that it's SO powerful that it uses up each sanding sheet very quickly. Keep many of the same grits on hand because you WILL be reaching for them frequently. All this said, I am very pleased with this product and look forward to many fast and painless projects ahead of me.

Great orbital sander.
I have used this DeWalt random orbital sander to prepare walls and window trim for exterior painting. It has worked great for me. It is fast and does excellent work. The only problem I have had is that after two years of continuous use the base pad became worn and sandpaper would no longer attach to it. This part was available from my local hardware store and was easily replaced. I would highly recommend it to my friends.

Great value - Does the job
I found this sander to be one of the best I've tried. It has the power to do tough jobs, like sanding floor edges down or fine craft sanding. It was easily hooked up to my shop vac and is pretty much dust free used this way. Being lightweight, I can easily use this over my head with one hand and still get a quick finish smoothness when the job requires this. You won't be sorry you bought this sander - it will be one of the first tools you reach for to finsh any job.

I have a small woodworking shop where I build a lot of small projects. I used a 5" orbital air sander quite often but the lengthly process of turning on the noisy air compressor and waiting to do a small job convinced me to try the Dewalt electric orbital sander. It turned out to be a great decision. The Dewalt sander does an outstanding job and is always ready. The tool is great quality and has given me no problems. I would reccomend it highly to anyone.

Dewalt orbital Sander
This item was delivered in perfect condition it has a nice case. I used it for the first time on a pine table top I was refinishing and I was amazed at how nice it worked. Not a lot of dust and the ease of effort to use was great. The table looks brand new now and it was an easy job because of this sander, I would highly recommend this sander to a novice or a pro.
