I have recently replaced my Porter Cable 333VS random orbital sander with a DeWalt D26453 random orbital sander. If I could have stayed with the Porter Cable 333VS I would have. I have found three problems with the DeWalt.
1. The dust bag is useless. It stops little dust and requires dragging a hose. The Porter Cable’s bag was superior and for most operations the supplied bag was fine. Seldom had to use a hose.
2. The top of the DeWalt is domed and is hard to balance during sand paper installation. The Porter Cable had little if any dome.
3. The DeWalt, at least to me, is touchier than the Porter Cable. The least little off center pressure and it skids across the work. I found the Porter Cable to be more stable, easier to control.
All things considered, I wish that I could have stayed with the Porter Cable 333VS .
