The sander is compatible with standard 1-1/4-inch and 1-1/2-inch vacuum hoses or any Bosch vacuum cleaner hose, and it features a dust-sealed switch.

As for this Bosch sander...
Well... I will be the first to admit that I rolled my eyes at the whole micro-filtration dust collection before giving this sander its initial spin. I figured it was a waste of time, but what the heck I'd see how it worked. Suffice it to say, I quickly became a believer! What I passed off as a cheesy sales gimmick by Bosch left me absolutely speechless! I used this bad boy to refinish a bar top and I'll be damned if the dust collection was absolutely out-of-this-world! Bosch has got an amazing thing going with that micro-filter! It REALLY did the job! Not only did it drastically cut down on the dust, but the sander did an AMAZING job at refinishing the top! I'm going to say it easily matched my Makita in terms of sanding performance, ran smoother, and did it at about 2/3rd's the price of a similar Makita.
This sander is absolute win in my book!
This is my first ROS, so I wasn't to sure that mine was even working properly when I first got it. It was working fine, but I was let down with how little power it had to spin. I associated spinning with removing material, something a sheet sander lacks both qualities, so I wasn't sure how this was going to be much better.
Somehow it manages to removes more material than my sheet sander even when it's not spinning. So I guess it just has a bigger range of vibratory motion. I do wish it had some kind of override that would make it spin with force, it would make remove material much easier. But it generally does remove material fast enough for me. Again, can't really complain.
The dust collection works surprisingly well, but it needs to be cleaned out far too often for my liking. It stops becoming useful after a little more than 2 or 3 minutes of sanding, super annoying to stop and remove the filter. The filter is also kinda a pain to clean, it's not the quickest. Because it's filled with ultra fine dust, I generally clean it outside, taking even more time.
All in all, I really like it. I thought the variable speed would be good, but I end up using max speed all the time. I thought the slower speed would be helpful for fine sanding, but it tends to just remove sanding control, and bounce around. Not a big deal, but I haven't found a use for the slower speeds
- It is noisy like any cheap orbit sander.
- The cartridge filter does not work, there is dust anywhere.
In other words, it works as bad as any other cheap random orbit sander, do not listen to their features. Now, considering Skil, Porter-Cable, DeWalt and this, this was more attractive.
It is naïve to expect anything better for that price, a truly gem such as Festool cause a fortune.
So, I hooked up to a vacuum with a hose and work that way. Nothing else to expect.
This bosch unit blows my old unit out of the water. There is so much less vibration on this little sander than my old sander, and the dust collection is far superior. Even with the dust collector attached on my old unit I had to use a mask and keep the garage open for ventilation. I recently did a built in desk in a spare bedroom and needed to sand the unit in place. I used this unit and there was hardly any dust in the air at all. When I was finished, I took the unit to the trash can and emptied the canister, that simple.
At this price point and quality, I wouldn't bother looking at any other model.
I researched a lot of other brands and decided that this one was best for the price. I wanted to get this deck sanded for less than $100 and that is exactly what happened. The old splintering deck now feels better than ever. The sander has a comfortable grip and gets the dust and is easy to change worn sandpaper. It uses 5 inch 8 hole Velcro sand paper. I used 60 grit and got the job done.
For first day impressions I am very impressed. Please do yourself a favor, trust that this sander will do the job and make this your choice.
