Do hardwoods for a living and picked this up after my older Milwaukee random quit on me. The motor is awesome, very powerful. Even running at max speed there is little vibration. Think im gonna pick up a couple more for the crew. Don't wait..if you are in the market and thinking about this sander get it. You wont be disappointed.

This is the first electric orbital sander I have owned. Having used air powered orbital sanders for years, my comparison might be a Granny Smith to a Red Delicious apple comparison.

The low profile and the size was the compelling factor in my purchase. I am very happy with it. It fits my hand very well and is comfortable to use, much like the air powered unit I own. I like the hook/loop paper attachment and the size.

I really like the dust collection, but if you plan to do a lot of sanding you might want to invest in a dust collection system, The bag fills pretty quickly, which means it is collecting a lot of the dust, not all the dust, but a lot.

The sander could use to be heavier. This seems an odd statement since every one wants lighter. In this case the sander seems to have a little mind of its own when on a flat surface. The orbital action makes the sander want move about the work piece in random directions. If it was heavier the orbital action wouldn't be such a factor in influencing where it goes on the work piece. Don't take this observation as a negative, it isn't, just an observation and product improvement suggestion I compare this with its air powered cousin which is a bit heavier, and is less influenced by the orbital action on the work piece. Just to qualify my statement, the courser the sand paper the more the sander is influenced by the orbital action.

Very well made product, as you might expect from Dewalt, very pleased with the purchase.

I was very pleased with the sander. Makes for fast sanding work. I found that I like to use sand paper grit that is 1 or 2 levels more course as compared to what you might get with a belt sander. I assume this is because of the orbital nature and very high speeds seem to result in a overall smoother finish. I don't think I'd ever have a need for anything above 80 with this sander.

I love the vacuum/dustless function of this sander. When hooked up to shop vac, you get almost zero dust. I found that the flexible 2.5" shop vac hoses fit over the outer part of the vacuum output or you can get adapters that fit into the inner tubes (the vacuum output takes up to 3 sizes).

This sander is fast w/o having the aggressive deep cuts of a belt sander. But if you are looking to take off a lot of material 1st, you might start with a belt sander and finish the work off with this one.

Again, very very happy with this sander.

p.s. one downside is the speed control is right by your palm and its easy to slowly adjust it as you are sending. After a while you have to spin it back to the speed you were at.

I have been looking at the PC390k for quite some time but was waiting for the right price. Found this product which appears to be a clone at a great price. I have two (2) Bosch 1295DVSK's and thought they were great products until I used this one. Buy it, you won't regret it.

I have used this tool for over a year. It is well made and easy to handle with the low profile design. The 26456 makes the other sanders I have used outdated. It cuts my work time in half or more. I have other Dewalt tools and expect quality in the tools I use. I love this sander.

I bought this sander to replace a Ridgid variable speed ROS that stopped working. This sander like other reviews state is a bit large for comfortable one handed operation. The power cord is much shorter than the sander it replaced which I came to love and it is average for stock removal and final finish capabilities. For $100 I would expect more. If I were to do it over again I would buy the Ridgid variable speed ROS and make sure to register the warranty as I didn't on the previous sander. The Ridgid also connected very snug to the vacuum hose I use for dust collection and while the Dewalt seems to have the same style connector it fits loosely translating to having to hold the hose or using just the passive dust bag on the sander itself. I build furniture and cabinetry for a living and a vacuum hookup is extremely beneficial for both your health and time savings of not having to clean up as often. I also use a Bosch sander for most of my work but it is a two handed sander so I have the need for a one handed sander a lot for finesse stuff. and this one is not what I had hoped but will work for now until I find a suitable replacement. If you want a serious sander look at the Bosch 1250DEVS... it cuts sanding down to a 1/4 of the time and is a must for serious woodworkers.

This sander was purchased to replace our Bosch after 7 years of cabinet shop use. Porter Cable makes one that looks just like this one. Took a risk and to save some money got this one. After sanding one small Maple top, I was disgusted with the swirl marks left behind. From the drum sander with 150 grit we finish with random orbit sanders, starting at 100 grit on up to 220, no skipping any. Even the 220 had terrible swirl marks. Also it lerches like I have never seen. Also seems to lack power.

On the up side. None of us had any issues with holding it. Dust collection was the best I have ever seen on a RO sander.

If your work calls for fine finishing you may want to avoid this sander. We have 2 other random orbit sanders and neither one has ever left a swirl mark like this one.

Wish I knew if the Porter Cable version was any differant?? I will go back to the Bosch.
