After purchase i used this sander to sand the deck of my 10x18 foot front porch. I used it for three days, about 12 hours total running time with ambient temperatures in the 90s. The sander worked well with no problems. I've rated it as 4 stars and will possibly add a fifth after i see how long it will last. So far so good....
The sander works great but it's not made to hook up to a shop vac like 90% of the rest do. Instead they expect you to buy an adapter for $28 just to hook to a 1" 1/4 hose. No thanks I'll buy another brand of sander then.
With long term house remodeling plans, I quickly realized the need for a random orbital sander. I purchased the DeWalt DWE6423 kit on sale at my local Home Depot. Since that time I have regularly used the sander and found it to be very dependable. The speed control dial makes it easy to adjust the RPM of the sander depending on the material being sanded and the 5" hook and loop pad makes it simple to quickly change the sanding discs. The sander is lightweight, and the shape of the top along with the rubber covering, make it comfortable for your hand when sanding for long periods. Although I was skeptical at first of the attached dust collection bag, it does work surprisingly well. This sander is a great value and I definitely recommend it.
just purchased, used over the weekend good results so far
I have used this sander for 7 months sanding a lot of Maple. walnut, and Purpleheart. I have it connected to a dust collection system and it does a great job of keeping the dust of the air
Purchased the DeWalt finishing sander several years ago and wanted the orbital sander to take advantage of the variable speed option. Plugged it in immediately to used with a wood working project. It didn’t disappoint!
