A great product worth buying and using
I've done quite a bit of woodworking the past 5 years since I retired. Sanding with a block palm sander finally gave me carpel tunnel. This sander is so much easier to handle with less vibration and my ears are loving it too. So quiet compared to the old sanders I was using. I've built beds, dressers a lot of cabinents, chairs, etc. This sander is a pleasure to work with.

Great performance
I have been using random orbit sander's for 30 years and this is the best one I've had so far, it is well-balanced a little heavier than the others I have used but with two handles it seems to balance very well.this one cost me twice as much as the others I have used but I think it is well worth the extra money.it has very low vibration and so my hands don't get nearly as tired as when using my other Palm Sanders.in spite of or because of the low vibration it has a very fast cut rate so my work gets done faster.Bosch got this tool really right.

I enjoy sanding again!
This is a must have for anyone who is sick of their hands ready to fall off when sanding. The Bosch sander is quiet, powerful, and almost no vibrations. I can't believe I didn't buy this sooner. I ran this with the vacuum attachment and almost no dust. I had to double check to see if I was even sanding since I was so used to a dust storm! Great product, would definitely buy again. Your hands will thank you, trust me.

Great Sander
The vibration reduction on this sander is great. If you do a lot of sanding, it does not leave your hands feeling numb. Well worth the extra money.

One sander to rule them all
I bought this sander about 6 months ago, and prior to that I had a nice yellow 5" ROS - it was fine, but bare bones with a ton of vibration, and it took me a while to decide that the cost of the new Bosch was worth it... and it was worth every penny! If you've ever had tingling fingers after a sanding session, this will take care of that problem. You can comfortably hold this sander several ways: holding the front and back handles simultaneously, or with just one hand on the top of the sander. The dust collection is amazing. When sanding in a finished space, I use the canister and produce very little dust; when sanding in my shop, I use a shop-vac and the suction is so strong that I need to hold workpieces down to avoid picking them up with the sander. The 5 variable speeds cover every sanding situation I encounter, from slow sanding for finish & edge sanding on soft woods, to highest speed for more aggressive sanding. Last time I checked, you could buy a 6" kit to convert this to a 6" sander - I have not done that yet. My only complaint is that I wish it was easier to find adapters for the dust port - I have ordered 3, and only one fits. But really it's by far the best sander I've ever even touched.

I bought 2
I actually got the 6 inch. I was impressed with the reviews on the HD site and internet ordered one. I liked it so much I bought one for my brother who loves it too.

I wish HD would have let me buy new pads as well and got it at the store. I guess most guys dont want to drop $220 for a sander. I was hooked on a air driven DA im not so sure now.

What an upgrade!
My previous sander finally died and I started the hunt for a new ROS. I settled on the ROS65VC-5 and couldn't be happier. Dust collection is superb - I have mine hooked up to a dust extractor. I am not lying when I say that after sanding through a grit, there is NO sawdust left on the workpiece. None… wow!

The anti-vibration feature really does work. It is not completely vibration-free, but it is VERY significantly reduced from other sanders. -No more "tingly-hand" after sanding.

I am very satisfied with this purchase and would highly recommend it!

Meets my demanding requirements
I bought this a few weeks ago while I was making 3 large 4'x20"x8'  cabinets for a client. The client was persnickity about the finish and I needed a ROS to quickly sand sheets of presanded 150 grit  3/4 plywood to 180 grit after priming then to 220 grit prior to the second coat of oil based paint.

It did the job very well and quickly. I used water based primer which raised some of the wood grain after drying. This gave me the allowed me the opportunity to remove all these wood particle which would have caused problems for my finish. I used 180 grit sand paper at this point and only had to go over the the plywood once using a 50% overlap technique on my previous sanding pass. I wasn't too particular with my 50% pass and it still performed well. 

Some things I did for dust collection. First I have the good fortune of a large carport to sand outside and let mother nature remove some of the dust for me. Second I used a shop vacuum with a hose extension taped to the handle (see picture. This set up eliminated the cord from dragging across the larger sheets of wood.

Each time I changed the sanding disc I used compressed air to blow out the hook & loop pad and the dust collection holes. I also would stick the air nozzle in one of the holes and rotate the sanding pad. This would clean out the internal blades and make dust collection efficient for the entire project. This was probably the key to having very little dust flying around the shop. Many times I worked at night and had all the doors to the shop closed - I only used the compressed air outside when cleaning the ROS.

The ROS was key to the very nice finish on the cabinets, so much so the client ordered 5 more

Can anyone tell me which backing pads will fit this sander? I recently purchased a Colonial Style home that I'm restoring and I can't find the various backing pads that are compatible with this sander. So far I've only found the rso38 soft 5in 8 hole hook and loop backing pad however I'm interested in purchasinng the hard backing pad, extra soft backing pad, etc. I've talked with several people and companies (CPO included) and no one has been able to provide me this information. The BOSCHtools.com website lists ONLY the rso38 backing pad as being specifically made for the ROS65vc-5 sander. I know the 5 inch sander can also use the ROS65vc-6 6" products but 1 would prefer to stay with the 5" versions. Can anyone help me?
Janny the JellyBean on Mar 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Per the manufacture's website Bosch does not make a hard backing pad for the ROS65vc-5.
would this be good on walls
Herby on Sep 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, Bosch model ROS65VC-5 can be used on walls
What case/box do you recommend that fits this RO VS Sander? One that would handle the optional 5" pad and sanding disks.
Mike on May 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we do not offer a custom molded case for this sander, however; Bosch offers a L-BOXX that could accommodate your needs. We would recommend using the L-BOXX3. To view this item visit www.cpotools.com

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
