I am excited about our first DA sander purchase. I bought a nice Dynabrade one Ebay yesterday and now I am anxious to get the sander. We have a lot of sanding coming up and I think the DA sander is the route we need to pursue. I don’t think I will miss my electric sanders. We use Dewalt ROS and I have found them to be the best we have used among other electric sanders we have experienced. But I am certain the Dewalt will end out gathering more dust then making dust in the future at this point. I do plan to utilize our Dewalt sanders for job site usage but nothing more.

If anyone has any experience with Dynabrades or DA sanders, please give me any pointers you might have.

Anyone have any knowledge of the Dynabrade 57015?

The sander I got is used but in very clean condition and seller stated very low usage hours.

Thanks, Jerry

anyone have any Dynabrade experience? I am anxious to give the new Dynabrade a run on some panels. It has not arrived yet but should be hear this next week. The sad thing is we are working on a laminate job right now but we have 2 larger custom jobs coming up where we will use our sanders extensively. So I need to purchase some PSA sand paper.

I have delayed upgrading my Dewalt ROS sanders but I am excited to see how these DA sanders work. I do feel they will be less expensive in the long run because we have burned up our fair share of electric ROS sanders.

I know there are a lot of fans on this site for the Festool sander. I wonder how that Festool ROS compares with the Dynabrade DA. I also like the fact that Dynabrade is an American made sander. Well friends, I am excited.

I have had a Dynabrade ROS for three years and love it! No problems really but it does use a lot of air though if that’s the type you’ll be using. If I haven’t used it in a while, after adding a few drops of oil, I spin the disc before activating it. If I don’t do that, it sometimes won’t spin on its own. Other than that, it’s a great sander.

Thanks Rob, I am considering installing an oiler in my line. I am very excited since we have burned out around 7 or so electric sanders and disregarded a few more.

Jerry, I just bought a Dynabrade ‘Spirit’ ROS on Von Hagan’s advice a week ago. I’ve used it daily with the Abranet discs and love it!!! No vibration, great dust collection….. I did a review a few days ago.

Thanks Gfadvm, I will look at your review. Is your sander a 3/16 orbit or 3/32 orbit.

3/16” which was the mid-range. By the way I got the vac ready model.

I believe the DA we are getting is 3/16. I plan on getting a 3/32 DA. I want one with fine and mid range orbit. Our DA has not arrived yet, hopefully soon. Our current job is laminate so the DA will get some shelf time.
