Details

The Bosch GSS20-40 1/4-Sheet Orbital Finishing Sander delivers even sanding and long tool life, with a precision-machined aluminum sanding plate. It has a 2.0 amp motor that produces up to 12,000 oscillations per minute (OPM), delivering uniform and smooth results on all surfaces. This tool incorporates low-vibration engineering for user comfort and for enhanced tool life. It features the traditional sanding sheet clamp design, for dependable grip of one or more sanding sheets (it also accepts stick-on paper). Ideal for finish carpenters and other pro users, the GSS20-40 features through-the-pad dust collection and a microfilter dust canister with screw-off cap. An integrated paper filter in the canister traps particles as small as 1/2 micron. The sander offers flush sanding, so the user can sand along the edges of vertical surfaces on three sides, for uniform sanding throughout the workpiece. The tool also provides an ergonomic soft-grip top for control and user comfort.
Features:
  • Precision-machined aluminum sanding plate for even sanding and durability
  • Powerful 2.0 amp motor with 12,000 OPM speed for fast, smooth results on all surfaces
  • Microfilter dust canister with screw-off cap is the optimal system for collecting fine dust and easy emptying
  • Low-vibration engineering provides stable handling and enhanced comfort
  • Traditional clamping design gives a dependable grip of one or more sanding sheets (pad also accepts stick-on paper)
  • Ergonomic soft-grip top provides stable handling and extended comfort
  • Dust-sealed switch prevents contamination
  • Through-the-pad dust collection for cleaner workspace
  • Flush sanding ability sands along vertical surfaces on three sides (front, left, right)

Great little sander.
Repainting my sons place so pick this sander up for the job. Have had a couple others over years and found this to be the best of the bunch. Dust collector work really well compared to other. Fits good in the hand for operating. Reasonable quite. Would recommend it for sure.

I have only used this tool for approximately three hours. It is easy to control and to sand in positions other than horizontal. Vibration is minimal. Dust collection is satisfactory. Power is good.

Another Great Bosch tool!
I own two Bosch routers, one half-sheet sander and this 1/4-sheet sander. I have owned 1/4-sheet sanders before. They always lost grip on the paper. This sander, like the 1/2-sheet sander, never looses grip on the sand paper. The dust-protection works well but, I will be purchasing the adaptor for my shop vac.

Great little sander. I used the old one to death. The new dust port is better because you can hook it directly to a vacuum hose. The new filter is poor compared the one used in the previous model.

Good quality sander
Quiet and low vibration and easy sanding sheet attachment design. Dust colllection good with just very small dust escaping...vacuum attached would be best. Totally satisfied with product.

Solid and powerful
I really like the way this sander feels and performs. It fits my hand perfectly so I can work with it a long time without cramping or feeling like it needs to be put down. The motor is extremely competant and strong. The switch is very positive. I haven't had any trouble with the dust collector and it adds value but only works about as well as you'd think.

Can you use this to remove paint from furniture? Just small pieces mostly...I'm looking for an alternative to my larger random orbital sander that is too noisy for my condo complex (I use it on my porch LOL).
A shopper on Nov 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, like most Sanders this will remove finishes from furniture. I have success using a variety of grits, from course to fine in progression . This sander remove finishes mostly without swirls due to it’s random orbit. Using the sand paper edges allows minute areas to be worked and sheets of sandpaper can be divided saving expenses from buying small single sheets. Large surfaces can be finished too, just exercise care not to over sand one particular area. This sander works well and is a great addition to my other Bosch tools. Enjoy.
Does this sander have multiple speeds?
robert z on May 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No it does not, however for my use mostly fine sanding for finishing it does the job nicely.
Good luck
