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.

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.

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 purchased this sander from amazon and received it just fine. It worked as expected for a few months of light use. Then the sanding pad would would spin at an extremely high RPM when I removed the sander from the workpiece. I could not return the pad back onto the would without completely ruining the project. I went to the Milwaulkee website, filled out the online form for a warranty return. They shipped out a new sander and I thought I was back in business. After less than 1 hour of use finish sanding... it happened again! With the brand new sander!! It started spinning like a disc sander or angle grinder, unbelievable!
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.

I generally work construction, but do a few painting jobs a year, and have usually used the blue cheap "Ry" sanders. I and my help have put hundreds of hours on each, and though it's a pain replacing the cheap hook pads constantly, they last very well, and only when the brushes wear out do they stop at all.

Deciding to "upgrade", I bought this one brand new, and only myself used it for less than 50 hours, and it died on me mid workday. Even up to then it was not overly impressive. It has decent power and low vibe, but the bag sticks out straight, with .5" clearance as opposed to upwards like all other models. It constantly rubs when sanding any uneven surfaces, and soon the single layer of cotton thread wears out and the bag springs holes. The rubber cord bend inhibitor was cracked nearly through in multiple places when I junked it, though the unit was stored in the box, in my shed, no heat or UV exposure outside of mild use. When this cracks through, you will be replacing cords constantly, as they overbend and crack also. The unit is not built to last, or for contractor use by any means.

"But how about that 5 year warranty?" you may be thinking. It requires that you pay to ship the bulky tool out, prepay return shipping, and pay to insure it both ways! That would practically buy a new one (probably what they're hoping for), but no, I am putting that towards a Metab0. They are made in Germany and are of the highest quality, and cost not much more.

For homeowners, may I recommend sticking with the big orange store's cheap blue brand? Both this model and those share the country of origin, which is CHINA! "Dew" makes a decent sander also, which is made in Mexico, and I have personally seen outlast this model many times over.
