    Dont waste your money

    published

    Had one of these for a short time, the thing started to vibrate, i couldnt work out what the problem was, turned out the single bolt that holds the sanding pad onto the sander had worked itself loose and as the surround of the base pad is plastic and the cog it attaches to is metal the metal destroyed the pad fitting rendering it useless. This was just out of warranty and Bosch were not interested in helping out in any way. Even though this is a design fault and not a wear and tear issue.The replacement pads are around $45 not cheap if the sander keeps destroying them.
    No more Bosch fo me thanks.

    Very good sander, one of the best I have ever used

    Bosch GEX 125 AC Professional is in the top two sanders i have ever used. The one that i like more is the Festool 57187, because of the higher stability it offers. Got the Bosch GEX 125 sander as an recommendation from BestRandomOrbitSanders website and I am really thankful to these guys!

    Excellent - it is powerful and just goes and goes, does the work of much bigger sanders and is economical on sanding sheets. It's capability in doing finishing sanding is very professional. However, mine is about 15 to 20 years old and I have worn the velcro from the sanding pad and I can't find where to get a new one.
    Reliable, powerful, ease of use, speed range for different sanding tasks.
    The velcro can wear off or be damaged.

    Yes I have had that sort of things happened before once after using 6~7months.
    But I thought that happened my casual worker press too hard down.
    So I just replaced.
    It was under $100 not like $260 or even $700 like fesco?.
    It is cost effective way.

    Hello, I had the same issue, opened it up to check if the bearing was in working order but the bearing was fine. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with my sander, very disappointed since it was relatively new and not used too much. Check YouTube , it might help you. Cheers
