I had burnt up my last sander and was in a pinch to get another. So I had found this sander at a box store for $80.00.
The weight and balance are very good. Also the grip is rubber and a little smaller than most of the others that I picked up. I will say this, one good thing about big box store is that you can test ride a product. I do have a bad wrist and on my last project I have been doing a lot of hand planing, sawing and card scrapping. so my wrist is a little sore. This sander does have some tolerable vibration but with the soft start it hasn’t hurt my wrist yet. My small shop vac hooked up with no problem. The provided dust collector has a spring in it. This made it very easy to take it off, place it over the trash can and beat the dust out of it. The spring pops the bag back into its full shape. Hear are the
Features. Variable speed dial: 7,000-12,000 orbits per minute Electronic soft start quickly, steadily ramps the motor up in stages Pad cushioning and break reduces swirl marks, integrated vacuum ports fit 1-1/4-inch or 2-1/4-inch hoses Tactile rubber top and body grip surface and narrow sander body ergonomic design * Includes carrying case, dust bag
