This isn't a bad little sander for very light work. I don't recommend it for large jobs like sanding a whole deck. It has it's advantages though.

I'm sanding a redwood 8' x 16' deck including railings and posts. I started with this Skill Octo Sander but it died about 40% of the way into the project so I bought a Dewalt 1/4 sheet sander. So I have a fresh perspective on these two sanders which I've now used on the same day on the same project.

The Skill wasn't a bad sander for light jobs. The "iron" shape with the pointed tip does have advantages. The many included alternate tips could be quite useful for specific jobs but I didn't use them. But the Skill has a plastic body, including the shoe which holds the sandpaper. In my case the front tip of the sander overheated due to friction, melted both the part that is on the sander and the part that snaps on which holds the sandpaper. I could still use if for a while but finally it wouldn't stay together and the front half of the shoe would not stay in place. I ended up tossing it in the trash. When I got to the store I contemplated buying another of the same model but decided to try something different.

Now onto the Dewalt. It was a little more expensive than the Skill but it seems to be better quality. The first time I tried it I was quite pleased because it was obviously working faster and better than the Skill, even with the same grit sandpaper. The Skill has pressure lights to show you when you're applying too much or too little pressure. The Dewalt says not to apply pressure, but rather to let the sander do the work.

The major difference between the two sanders is how the sandpaper is attached. The Skill has a hook-and-loop (like Velcro) mount for sandpaper.

The optional attachment worked great for several days. I was able to get into nooks and crevices with the special attachments easily, but the attachment base broke after I'd been using it for about 2 hours non stop one afternoon. Worked great when it worked, but it gave out in the middle of my project. It's possible I didn't attach the special attachment right, but I think it just gave out from extended use.

Verified Purchase
I agree with the previous reviewer. After about 2 hours use, the plastic clip-type device that holds every attachment onto the Octo simply melted. It is now completely unusable. (Note that the main sanding base is also an attachment that will no longer clip onto the Octo.)

When it did work, it was nice; however, it is way to tall to fit between railings, etc. Perhaps hand sanding is the only true solution!

It's great for occasional use, but don't let it get hot! As online reviews have stated since 2010, the plastic tabs on the base will melt with heat and friction, rendering the tool useless. The Octo is manufactured by Bosch for consumer use, but the upgraded Bosch detail sander (different handle) is designed the same way - plastic base w/ plastic tabs that melt, for $100 more. Major engineering flaw that hasn't been addressed. As well, the sandpaper backing loses grip on the hook and loop well before the abrasive is worn out. I had no problem with glue coming loose on backing pads, though. Everything we buy anymore seems cheaply made and disposable. Same for the Octo.

Can't rate it too poorly, as it's a great sander with attachments that initially work very well. Use it for more than an hour, and the tabs break off. Too bad, because I'd pay considerably more for it if Bosch would beef it up with a metal base and heat-resistant attachments. (Bought mine at Lowe's and returned it broken.)

I bought this at Lowe's to complete a project. The attachment parts began to break almost immediately. The worst part of the broken attachments was that the velcro pad that sand paper sticks to detached (became unglued) from the motor housing rendering half of the sander unusable!

As well, the machine is a little under powered and the dust collection system only collects about 1/3 of the dust generated by the machine. It's more of a vanity dust bin than anything else. Finally, the dust bin is attached by friction which makes it particularly difficult to remove -- after my first use of the machine I thought the bin was fused closed because it was so difficult to remove.

The shortcomings of this item call to question the Skill name. In the past I perceived Skill to be a producer of quality products. I now consider Skill to be a producer of cheaply made throw-away tools. I will be more cautious before purchasing Skill again.

I was sanding some cabinet doors and drawers that had some details in the wood. Not a big job, but not one where I wanted to hand sand. What attracted me to this sander was all the different attachments.

Where do I start with the complaints. The sandpaper is attached to the attachments with velcro. The velcro is very cheaply designed. After sanding only 3 doors the velcro was pealing off. So, the sandpaper would not stick to the attachment. The sandpaper is specially design and is sold in a variety pack for about $10. You have to buy this even though you only need one size of the sandpaper.

Finally, the dust filter? That's a joke. The dust cannister never collected any of the dust. Fortunately, I was outside sanding. I returned it to Lowes the following morning.

This sander has all kinds of design flaws.
