I like this sander very much. It is all that was advertised. The only thing that I do not care for is that it is a bit more air hungry than others that I have used. This would be less of a problem with a Very High CFM air compressor. A minimum CFM requirement would have been useful in making a choice. Still, for the money, it is a great buy.

I have put this sander to work on sanding boat's 4 day's a week's in the past 10 weeks and is sanding as good as day one. I need to get a smaller one now.

I purchased this sander to work down paint quickly on body panels on the car that I am restoring. Although it is a great product, it draws WAY too much air from compressors, so your compressor must be of heavy-duty size. I have a 30 gallon craftsman and with that, only the edges of each pad can be used with this sander. So I am burning through a pad every 5-10 minutes.

So, all in all, it is a nice sander... but some minimum requirements for the compressor would be nice to have...

My air compressor (3hp/ 6 peak hp Campbell-hausfield)is supposed to be rated 10cfm at 90 psi, but its not a huge tank. This DA works without but it sure runs out of steam fairly quickly, and I was forced to wait for my air compressor to catch up. If I had an air compressor that was able to maintain a higher CFM this DA would be perfect for it.

bought this product because of the brand and of the price, I work in an autobody shop and I thought that this product would be a good addition to my tools however a couple days after I purchased it the button to adjust the speed just got a really stiff and broke off now I cannot adjust the speed, it still works pretty well but I'm just a bit disappointed in this product..

Not quite as good as I was hoping it would be. I have owned and bought many DA sanders over the years for my shop, so I have had the chance to try many. I was hoping this was a nice sander due to being a IR. I do feel it is a bit on the heavy side, and does use a lot of air, as others have mentioned. I have also found it seems to be kinda sloppy and not nice and tight, and smooth operating. I guess it would be good for rough sanding or stripping a panel, but not for finish sanding, as it is more of a rough-in sander. I would not buy another.

Why on earth is there an air tool without any mention of the compressed air requirements? I saw several reviews with somewhat obscure warnings to "make sure your compressor will handle it". I don't know what its pressure and volume requirements are, so I have to search its website. Of course I can and will do that, but such a fundamental spec should be there. (Dimensions, Weight, power requirements/air requirements)

I can't fairly rate this tool because my 5 hp/60 gallon compressor could not deliver enough air to run it. I found elsewhere (not on Amazon) that this tool is rated for 17 cfm -- far more than my compressor can keep up with. I thought the 60 gallon tank would allow me to work a bit and then wait to catch up, but it did not -- even after I changed to 1/2" air hose straight from the tank, I could not utilize the full surface of the pad. Edge sanding just doesn't cut it!
