Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Throughout our orbital and random orbit line, the emphasis is on almost vibration-free performance. Tools are designed for toughness, rigidity and light weight, using magnesium, engineered plastics and other materials. Orbit mechanisms are engineered with ball and roller bearings to remove the maximum amount of stock while producing minimum vibration. Our SXE 450 is the world's first dual orbit, random orbit sander, with alternative settings for very high stock removal, and fine finishing. Many models have integrated dust collection systems. These tools use dust collection bags and punched sandpaper. Random orbit and dual random orbit models also have infinitely variable speed controls. And a complete line of Metabo abrasives is available to fit all of our sanders. Whichever sander you choose, you'll get the legendary Metabo advantages of power, longevity and balance. After all, we've been building tools since 1924. And for over 80 years, we've helped customers all over the world complete better quality jobs, with a lot more satisfaction. And a lot less down time.

I am retired and do woodworking as a hobby. Most of my woodworking is turning wood on a lathe to make bowls, closed vessels and other pieces made from downed trees. A professional wood turner recommended the Metabo 3" random orbit sander for finishing turned objects. I had been using right angle drills with sanding attachments for all my power sanding, using 2" and 3" disks from 80 grit to 400 grit. This machine does a great job. It is well made and heavy duty. The finish it produces is excellent with no scratches from the sand paper. 220 grit leaves a very smooth finish! The disc size is metric so it is slightly larger than 3". I bought 3" Velcro sanding pads to fit my sandpaper discs.
The Metabo tools are industrial tools. I have seen them in use on construction projects. As such they cost more than consumer products but they are well worth the extra cost. This tool gets heavy use in my shop but I expect it to last many years.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to find tools which are not made in China. Thankfully, Metabo still manufactures this tool in Germany - at least of the date of this review. The German high quality shows in this 3 1/8 inch random orbit sander/polisher. This is a well designed tool. The unit fits the hand well, the switch is conveniently located and the motor is smooth, strong and quiet. The rpm range runs from 5,000-10,000 rpm. The unit's smooth motor produces virtually no vibration which makes the unit easy to hold for long periods of time without the user experiencing hand fatigue or numbness. The tool can comfortably be held and operated using one hand as designed.

I purchased this unit to use polishing and waxing smaller areas on my automobile (A-Frame of roof support, around license plate, etc.) where my six inch random orbital polisher is a bit too large to use effectively. I use the Griot's Garage 3 inch polishing and waxing foam pads along with the Griot's Garage polishes and waxes (available through Amazon or directly through Griot's Garage). I have also used the unit with Griot's plastic polish to polish the plastic rear window on my convertible and plastic headlight covers on my cars and have achieved good results. The Metabo was worked well in all these polishing applications.

This is the first Metabo tool that I have purchased. For the last couple of years I have bought Festool tools almost exclusively. Festool is an ultra-premium German tool line. Based on my experience with this random orbit polisher, I would definitely purchase another Metabo tool.

UPDATE 6/12: I purchased (and returned) another Metabo tool - a circular saw - that was made in China, so Metabo is clearly manufacturing some, if not all, tools in China.

This was a fantastic small sander. The disks could be hard to find, so instead I used some 3-1/2 disc that worked great. Unfortunately, Metabo doesn't sell replacement brushes for this sander. The US distributor says I have to buy the whole motor assembly instead, which is not a cost effective.

This is the real deal. Not out of control like the bigger ones. Even has a vacuum attachment that does not in fact get in the way. Nonwoven abrasive disks are available but are factory order slow to obtain, online, so I haven't tested those yet, to clean ceramic tiles without scratching them. This baby has become my default sander. It's well behaved. I've been sanding entire walls with it after amateurishly smearing on drywall compound. It just works. No gouging effects at all, unbelievably. The fact that it has a tapered foam pad means it gets into corners just fine. My pneumatic random orbit sander lacked the control of this thing, even though it was in fact only 2" wide disk size. Hand vibration is minimal. This is not a child's toy! It's man's best friend.

UPDATE: In 2012 the non-woven abrasive disks for this 3 1/8" size sander are impossible to find but 3" disks work fine as long as I include the foam spacer and use a brand new replacement Velcro backing pad ("Intermediate Disc") so the fresh Velcro can handle all the inertia and then remember not to max out the RPMs without being in contact with a surface. I get the non-woven pads from McMaster, currently. The foam intermediate disc, being flexible, quickly adapts to having the smaller 3" abrasive disks placed on it whereas the hard main Velcro disk suffers damage and gets in the way of the very edge of the abrasive disk if used alone. I'm still a happy camper then since you can still buy replacement main Velcro disks and foam extender pads. I'm docking this down to 4 stars though since this sort of cancelled item wastes a lot of my time in the tool world. But boy does this baby ever whiten an old white metal tub without clogging or scratching, something I don't otherwise have patience to deal with.

Wow what's going on at Amazon passing off used equipment as new. That's what has happened to me twice. The first sander arrived with scratches and brush marks and missing the sample discs that were supposed to be included in the box. So I ordered a second sander and returned the first one. The second sander arrived today is also used. It was covered with sheet rock dust and missing the sanding discs and the soft pad accessory. I discovered that the 2nd sander did not vibrate like the 1st sander so obviously defective used sanders are being returned to Amazons inventory. This really gives me pause and I wonder what else does Amazon put back into their inventory? Seems to me that used products should be going to their clearance inventory.

I reported this to one of the Amazon customer service reps and then re-ordered a third sander. Will follow-up after the third sander is received.

Today I received the third sander and it was also used and missing the sample sanding discs. Amazon has not been sending me the same sander as I have two in my possession and they received the first sander back today. Unfortunately this means they are re-stocking used items as new. To bad this has happened as I considered Amazon a quality vender.
