Very Well balanced and feels exceptionally comfortable in operation.
Mr. E
The dust collection is great for a passive system; even better when attached to a shop-vac.
G. Conner
This is my second orbital sander and he seems far better than the previous Dewalt.

The 5yr warranty and extra sanding disk plus a case make this sander a great value. This sander runs very smooth and quiet compared to the sander being replaced. The switch is located properly varaible speed dial is smooth. Very important my hand doesn't cover the upper motor vents when operating it to prevent overheating the motor. Unfortunately some of the other sanders were designed poorly.
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.

Milwaukee brand pulled me to this Orbit Palm Sander. Good brands mean good quality ... it is (5-yr warranty). Nice Case. Not heavy, but heavy enough. Very Well balanced and feels exceptionally comfortable in operation. With attached shop-vac, its clean and that's nice. Powerful motor with variable speed (use most generally at top speed) is handy. I like the soft shut-down and the long cord helps free up the operation. A quiet system for an orbit sander and minimal vibration. Does not fatigue ones hand.

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.

I recently purchased this sander and so far I am loving it. It has a decent amount of power and the handle has a nice feel and balance. The variable speed is great for different applications. A big plus for me is that this sander is also ready for direct hookup to a shop vac -- just twist and pull on the dust bag to remove it and plug your vac directly onto the back for a near dust-free sanding experience.

I bought this sander about 4 months ago. I am in the middle of building our dream house and since I am a woodworker I am doing the trim/finish work.
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 unfortunately need to revise my original review. In just under a year of light use, the disk was all of a sudden spinning up to disc sander speed and gouging work. An obvious sign of broken belt. I sent it off for warranty service and was shocked to get a notice in the mail that they wanted $58 to repair a $60 sander that was under warranty. Two more phone calls with customer service have resulted nothing but a run around. Milwaukee has been a stalwart of quality tools for decades but now have descended to the level of just another mediocre junk purveyor. I was just getting ready to buy another of their nail guns, no way now! THE 5 YEAR WARRANTY IS A SCAM DON'T FALL FOR IT!!!

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!

It's no surprise to anyone who has used sanders, but it is often overlooked; good sandpaper makes a huge difference. The two best sanders I have tried this year are the Bosch and this Milwaukee. I bought this one because it was on sale and the price was so attractive. Glad I did!

It works very smoothly, with little vibration. Even after marathon sanding sessions, I can still feel my fingers well enough to play some piano or guitar. The dust collection is great for a passive system; even better when attached to a shop-vac.

Tip: ANYTIME you sand painted or finished projects, use the vacuum. Finishes are full of stuff you definitely DO NOT want to breathe. The same tip applies to any project assembled with urea formaldehyde resin glues. That stuff can put you in the hospital. Formaldehyde is only safe for people who are already dead. ;-)

This sander is lightweight, starts smoothly and is easy to control. You can press a little without damaging a surface. Like all orbital sanders this one works better when you let the weight of the tool do the work. It is easy to "land" ( like an airplane ) so that you don't get divots. It is easy to to "take-off" without gouging your work-surface.

My wife appreciates how quiet it is, especially since I often work in the garage under our bedroom. The hook-&-loop sandpaper disks change quickly and easily. The bag is a trifle hard to evacuate. Here again, your shop-vac is your friend. Even when I sand outside, I still use the shop vac to remove as much dust as possible from the bag. That makes a BIG difference in dust-collection performance. That's true for any sander, but is especially so with passive collection systems.

I've only had this sander for a few months, but it shows the famous Milwaukee durability.
