Great Sander
I love it! The best feature is the sawdust filtering and collection system. There's very little cleanup after sanding. Also the electrical cord is extra long.

Super dust collection
Had one of these for years and needed another. Bought another brand for less money, but it did not retain dust like my Bosch. Two days of eating dust was enough. Went out and bought another Bosch. This will be the only orbital sander from now on. Thanks Bosch!!

Great choice!
I picked up the ROS20VSC at a local store recently to handle a large job. I’ve been pleased with it for several reasons. First, is simply fits the hand naturally. Even after hours of use, the lightweight and the ergonomics are easy on you. The dust collector does an amazing job catching the particles and with its built in filter, nothing makes it back out on to the air you breathe. I did not anticipate how nice this would prove until I realized I don’t have to stop every so often to clean my glasses. The sander comes with an adaptor to connect your vacuum which works quite nicely as well.
Then there is the power I have been using it for days and while the machine is powerful enough to tackle the wood, somehow it is still easy on the hands. I have not taken advantage of the variable speed settings. I have found it works best for me at the highest setting, so I have left it there.
Finally, I had consider placing an order for a model online because it came with a hard-sided case. But I had to get my hands on it right away so I “settled” for the model at my local store. I was pleased to see that it comes with a soft-sided case that works just fine.
I am very pleased with my choice and highly recommend it.

Great Sander
I bought this a few months ago for use on a number of remodeling projects and it is terrific. It sands well and with an attached vacuum it is as close to dust free sanding that you can get. Perfect for remodeling without the mess.

Great sander!
I have had the 6 inch sander for several years and I still love it - but it is up north for the winter. So I bought the 5 inch version for here in FL and it has not disappointed me - I love it!

Very Nice ROS
I've been using this ROS for about six months or so and it works perfectly. The hook and loop sanding disc fastening system is very secure. Depending on the sandpaper grit you can get a very aggressive cut or an extremely smooth finish with virtually no sanding marks. No need to apply a lot of pressure this ROS has plenty of power and with good discs sanding is a breeze. I hook it up to my shop vac and I could sand in the living room with no dust.

Awesome Sander
I have owned this sander for four years and can not due without it. The speed adjustment is very helpful when working with soft wood. This sander does a very good job no matter what project I am working on from thin grips for a "1911" to a custom book case. I am ready to buy a new one so that I can have one set up for rough sanding and the other for the finish work. It is very helpful in finishing my intricate scroll saw projects. Thanks Bosch for making such a good product.

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
JLBN on Feb 12, 2015
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.
How many holes does it have for the sanding disks? Do you have to buy Bosch sanding disks?
Pedro on Apr 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This Bosch sander requires standard 5" 8-hole hook & loop disks, not PSA disks. These are the only requirements for properly fitting sanding disks, so find the best disk at the best price with these specs.
How much does it weigh?
big guy on Dec 20, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The sander weights 5 pounds.

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.
