I looked them all over at Home Depot and Lowes and was impressed with several and not so much with others. But in the end, good review comments, nice options, good specs, and a respectable price favored the Milwaukee. It's even better than that in operation. Recommended.
The dust bag connector is designed better and is more secure than other brands that vibrate loose. It's not difficult to remove either. My vacuum hose fits well on the sander too. (My vac fitting is rubber.)
I read physically compared the comfort and design of many random orbital sanders in stores. I read reviews and complaints about many sanders. Most complaints were about vibration, poor quality dust cannisters/bags.
Finally I decided to read the sanders specs, warranties, weight, amperage for effeciency, orbit size myself. I even looked at parts breakdown of each sander to avoid expensive repairs resulting from complicated designs. I read somewhere that heat eventually destroys hook & loop. Most replacement pads cost $20-$30 depending on Mfg. I will prob use PSA discs since they can be a bit cheaper and buy a favorite backup pad before sander models change.
The sander has plenty of power and relatively smooth running machine but there are three issues that I have with it.
First... The sanding canister is a sewn cloth bag. It does collect a lot more dust than the other brands that either have porous canister or a filter canister (Bosch for example) but the cloth bag has a gap where it was sewed together right near the end of the canister. Rather hard to explain but this gap allows a significant amount of fine dust to spray back into the air. Now, it did connect easily to my shop vac and with that connected dust was virtually non existent.
Second.... There are two air vent holes on the left side of the machine that blow motor air out. If you are sanding a side of a cabinet for example the air blows directly in your face. Couple that with some fine dust blowing out of he canister and your eyes will hurt.
Three.. It seems that the pad on my machine takes off (spins up full speed) once it is lifted off of the material. I don't remember if it did this when it was new but I am thinking it did not. After only about 4 months of use I feel that it should not do this.
I was so frustrated that I didn't even want another piece of crap sander from Milwaulkee. I took the sander to my local Home Depot and asked them if I could return it so I could get the Ridgid. After some discussion that's what I did. They didn't even have this sander on the rack to sell. I'm assuming they've had some issues with it and decided to pull it.
So far the Ridgid is working just fine, and I can even slide my 2 1/4 shop vac hose into it unlike the Milwaulkee.
This was my first and probably last Milwaulkee tool purchase.
Original review: I needed to replace my PC sander that was starting to make that rattling "my bearings are starting to go" vibration. Since PC was bought out by the big yellow giant, their quality has gone down so I looked around. This sander is of asian manufacture, but Milwaukee still stands behind their tools with a 5 year warranty. I've tried a router and couple of nail guns by them and am please with their smoothness and power. This sander vibrates less than the PC and is probably better made. The hose receptacle required a step adapter to talk to my fein hose but I already had one. Good tool great price!
