I have used this tool for sanding down paint on houses, a job it is particularly well suited for. The features I appreciated most were:
- Light weight (much lighter than a disc grinder - but it still feels well built)
- Great balance (making it much easier to use one-handed than a grinder)
- Durability and suitable power
Overall, this is a great tool for painters, which is why it seems to be standard issue with many pros. If I were using it for anything else (sanding or grinding fiberglass, for instance), I would personally prefer a sander that has speed control (such as the 7" sander/polishers from Makita or Milwaukee) so that I could have better control of the amount of material being removed. But for painting houses, I consider it a must-have. The only thing I have come across that could use improvement (and it is a bit nit-picky) is that the trigger lock is difficult to operate with the left hand - I am right handed, but sometimes need to use the tool with the left when up on a ladder, etc. I have also seen it cheaper than Amazon's current price ($99) at a local home superstore...

I do alot of metal fabrication and welding,and I recently purchased one of these sanders. It is one of the best purchases I have made.I find myself reching for it more and more in place of my usual grinder.It leaves a much nicer finish than a disc grinder,and it is perfect for dressing welds without having them look like they have been hit with a grinder. It removes material rapidly,and is very good for removing paint prior to welding. I use either 36 or 50 grit discs,and they seem to last very well.This tool is highly recommended.

If you need to remove paint from a house, barn or old garage, buy this thing before you start. It does an excellent job without marring the work surface. Considering the amount of effort it saves (esp. over using a scraper), it's dirt cheap. It's also very durable (I've had mine 7+ years). I only wish their orbital sanders held up this well. With a coarse grit sanding disk you can quickly and easily take an old painted surface down to bare wood. I learned about the tool from a house painter who told me it was invaluable. One warning though, be sure to use the side handle that comes with it. It runs at high speed and if you're using it in only one hand, it can get away from you if the disk gets wedged in a crack or caught between two boards. The bottom line is, unless you really enjoy scraping paint (in which case you're a little weird), you'll want this tool - it's a MAJOR labor saver.

Borrowed one of these (then bought one) and used to grind out an old floor that was glassed into a '65 fiberglass runabout. Was super fast and the control was amazing. Loved how light and powerful this little dynamo is.

This is the least expensive, best designed tool for prep work available. It's very tough, light weight so it's easy to use, and best of all it takes 5" center hole sanding disks. They are cheep, come in a very wide varity of grits and can be found at any big box store, hardware store, paint store, ect.

That was true up until August of "06. Now 3M, Norton and others appear to have discontinued the product, rendering to tool useless. 3M, Makita and others are you listning? We need out paper back.

I needed to strip old paint in awful shape from a side of my house last year. As I drove around I carefully observed what professional paint crews used to strip paint, and nine times out of 10 it was this Makita disc sander. I bought one that had been factory reconditioned by Makita for about $59 and it's done nothing but work perfectly through a ton of rough use. Same warranty as a brand new one.

Now I'm prepping another side of my house and using this tool to get down to the wood. Don't kid yourself about which grit you'll need. If the paint is hard and rough, go with 24 or 36 grit, and use the heavier "metallic" discs because they're much sturdier and will last longer. But not too long. Figure on using a lot of discs if it's a big job. Also, apply as light a pressure as you can and keep the sander moving around to avoid creating too many swirl marks. These are inevitable and you often need to really press down harder, but once you prime and paint, the only way you see them is by looking very closely. And even then, so what? If the paint job is great, the surface will look good, too.

One somewhat inconvenient aspect of this model is that it uses a center screw to hold the sand paper discs on. This is fine in itself, but it can sometimes be challenging to find these discs in hardware stores. They're pretty common on line. And you may want to buy an extra 5 mm hex wrench for removing the screw in case you lose the one that comes with the sander.

No matter what you use to strip paint, it's never fun and it's a ton of hard work. But if you don't prep well you are wasting your time and money on paint.

Ordered the GV5000 because have had really good history with this unit. Was sent the GV5010 which is their newer unit. So far works as well and is more comfortable than the GV5000. Eployees seem to like this sander/ grinder the best would recomend to anyone needing light grinding and sanding applications
