Second one!
I purchased one of these a few years ago when prices were at a premium. I’ve used the heck out of the sander wearing out the hook and loop pad and the removable dust collector. I have since replaced both details and the unit still works like new.

I’m sure the old one still has more life left in it, but just in case I now have a spare!

Bad batch? My second time using it, while lightly sanding a desk top, the motor just croaked. Now it only hums. Guess it's back to Lowe's for a replacement. Not so sure about Bosch anymore. It worked just fine.... that is until it died of course. Can't say I could recommend this product.

So happy I bought this sander
I bought this sander because my current orbital sander does not have dust collection. This first night I used this sander I connected it to my vacuum hose and proceeded with a large amount of sanding while wearing a black long sleeved t-shirt. I finished wearing a clean shirt. I love this sander!

Works well enough for my purposes.
I use this at home for small projects and it's been consistently good. I only provided four stars because I don't know how it holds up under constant strain, for example sanding hours a day.

Very nice orbit sander
I bought this at a local big box store to help in a refinish job on our egress window in our home. It performed very well and got the job done in a short period of time. It is very comfortable in my hand. I am happy I got it.

Great Product
This product does the job it's intended to do. I've found the sander easy and comfortable to hold, and the canister easy to empty. I haven't had any problems with this product.

barely a month...
got me one. especially for the rotating feature. this makes short work of sanding... only problem is, i'm at barely a month and sounds the bearings are dying... gets mega hot, and the "BOSCH HOOK AND LOOP" feature... the loops on the sanding discs fail before the sanding paper...

Excellent Sander
Got sander 8 months ago and have used it on everything. Has performed great actually don't mind sanding anymore. It's comfortable to use on large projects and is handy enough to grab for small quick jobs. Could not be happier this is another great Bosch product! The only improvement I would have is I should have spent the couple extra for the hard case

First of all, I really need to know is the Bosch is as good as they say it is and why isn't their warranty as good as the Ridgid products? Please answer this question for me, as this would be for my wife and I don't want a lot of grief from her over this sander.
Thanks You much,
John

BEST ANSWER: Short answer, yes. To elaborate, I own Rigid, Milwaukee, Makita, and Bosch sanders of this type (5" RA). I hate the Makita (never been able to keep the disks from flying off), don't care much for the Milwaukee (powerful, but very hard to control), really like the Rigid, and love the Bosch. I'll probably purchase the Dewalt in the next 6 months so that I can be sure that have the best 5" RA sander out there. I would rate the Bosch a little higher than the Rigid, but not by much. The Rigid seems to be a bit more powerful and agressive. It's relatively easy to control. The Bosch, while not as agressive, is the easiest of all these RA sanders to use. There's very little vibration to deal with, unlike the Makita and Milwaukee sanders. Although I feel the Bosch edges out the Rigid, its not by much. If I had to choose, I would go with whom ever has the better deal at the time.
What is the height of this sanders?

BEST ANSWER: The Height is 6 inches.

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 120 days.
