    Average performance, expensive, terrible warranty

    published

    Bought this sander in late 2018. At 2.5 years old the motor burnt out after moderate use (timber work only).
    This sander was almost double the price of any others available, yet it has the shortest warranty of them all (including those 1/4 of the price).
    I purchased a replacement sander for $75, which I found is more powerful and generally feels better, plus has a 4 year warranty!
    I see ZERO reason to purchase this Makita sander over any of the competitors, it's worse in every way.

    Purchased in August 2018 at Bunnings Warehouse for $200.00.

    Best orbital in the shed

    published

    this was gotten as an alternative to a fixed speed 1/4 sheet orbital. Cleaning up plaster patches the 1/4 sheet makes a terrible mess, makes had work of the job and leaves the air thick with plaster dust - this machine has a collection system similar to the bo5041kx.

    The bo5041kx on half speed removes material quicker and easier than the 1/4 sheet and with hardly any mess and airborne dust. The use of the two handles also makes it easier to use overhead without blocking any airways.

    Go for it - forget the green shed though, most others give you redeemable brownie points, mine came from Total Tools but I saw it later at Mitre10 a few bucks cheaper.

    Purchased in July 2020 at Total Tools Physical store for $209.00.

    Great sander, seems expensive but once you use it you'll be glad you spent the money.
