I just got this sander to help refinish wood floors. I have a larger orbiter floor sander but it can't get the uneven edges of old floors that are warped. I have used several types of sanders for this detail work including the iron shaped ones. I like this on for it's shape since it can quickly clean up edges & uses regular sanding sheets instead of expensive hook & loop paper. Paper changes out easily. It is also fairly quiet.
It is comfortable to use & I can use it one-handed when needed, even as a woman with small hands.
I'm hoping this will last longer than the other hand sanders I have used which stop working after a few months. Overall, I am very pleased with it so far.

I needed a sander to replace an old B&D that quit working 5 minutes into a large project. I wanted a 2 handed sander and they are hard to find, all the local stores sell palm sanders. This sander is great, much less vibration and noise than the old B&D, the paper is held on securely by heavy metal clamps (no way it's going to come loose) and the dust bag picks up about 70% of the dust. It removes excess wood filler quickly and effortlessly. It costs more but well worth it.

You cannot go wrong with Makita for any tool. Often copied but never duplicated. I am slowly converting all of my power tools over to Makita. This sander works really well. Admittedly, the dust bag does not do much. More for show than functionality. Don't try sanding furniture in the baby's room expecting there will not be any dust. Doh! Other than that, changing sand paper is a breeze (hooray!) and it the unit is quieter and smaller than my last sander.

Understand, I am a guy who has gone through 4 Black and Decker sanders in the last 4 years. I think it was more of just being a meiser & not being willing to pay a liitle more for a better product. This one quietly purrs like a kitten & gets the same job done in less than half the time of those B&D POS's I used to own.

Replaced an old Black & Decker that finally gave up after many years use. Looked at the new B&D but the reviews were rather poor.

Went for the more expensive Makita based on reviews ... it is worth spending more ... great sander, using it for house siding/repainting. I buy large sheets and cut them myself to 3x9. Sander is very quiet, motor is strong, pad is soft, paper retention clips are excellent and easy to use. My only quibble is the trigger, it's a bit too easy to lose power because you aren't squeezing the trigger hard enough, but luckily there's a button for setting the trigger to an 'on' state until you squeeze the trigger to release it. You can use both hands or sand single handed till you get tired. Haven't use the collection bag as all my sanding has been outside. Anyway, overall I love this sander. A lot of sanders today are marketed like a razor, with the 'special' sandpaper as the overpriced razor blades ... this is much cheaper if you buy sheets and cut them with scissors to fit.

I've bought a couple Harbor Freight power tools ... THEY ARE CRAP. Made in China, look like a great deal but they're not ... buy quality, mine are going in the trash or recyle. Harbor Freight is good for inexpensive hand tools, and commodity type items ... but for power tools go with a quality provider. Much of Makita stuff is actually assembled here in the U.S.A. so at least they are EMPLOYING your fellow countrymen. I bought a belt sander that is horrid, and an all purpose tools that is equally bad ... you need ear muffs to run either and I wish I hadn't bothered throwing my money away on this garbage. Go U.S. or German, or Japanese ... forget the Chinese stuff tools-wise.

I've been extremely happy with the performance I've been getting out of my little palm-sized quarter-sheet Makita for several years, but loading paper into its clips is difficult under most circumstances and downright impossible with gloves on. Being the size that it is, it's never been all that effective at leveling out large, flat areas (like taking out all that planer chatter you usually get on your cheaper grades of plywood) and it was also loud. Like, louder-than-my-belt-sander loud. But half-sheet sanders are more than 3X the price and usually not much quieter.

Then along came this model offering acceptable compromises on all fronts. It covers way more area than the quarter-sheet units yet costs only a few dollars more. It's also quiet as the day is long. I don't own a decibel meter, but you can hear the TV over it in most circumstances, so you'll be able to forego the hearing protection entirely without fear.

The paper clamps swing outward rather than down, so they are pretty easy to operate with the sander laid flat. They don't really pull the paper super-taught, so tears are a possibility, but they hold on just fine. The dust collector does an OK job--not great, but what do you expect?

In use, it makes amazingly short work of orange peels in between finish coats without being so aggressive as to grind down through the stain. You can certainly get by with one hand, but you'll probably want to use two.

Great sander for the money.

Things I like: Quiet, Not much vibration, Dust collection works relatively well, Easy to handle
Things I'm not crazy about: When I first used it, there was a distinct smell of burnt wiring for about 30 minutes or so (Also at the same time the sander would barely run, it seemed to be just humming, finally it picked up speed and quit burning whatever it was burning), The clips for the sand paper are cheapy spring loaded devices that work ok but not as robust as previous snap type clips, The sander itself does not have the power of previous models, bogging down with the slightest pressure when using coarse grits

Overall I'm disappointed that Makita cheapened what I considered the best 1/3 sheet sander on the market
