Great build quality, almost great performance.
Bosch has always been a brand name I know I can trust. I wanted to buy the ROS65VC-6, but at more than double the price, I couldn't justify it. For the money, this is a great sander. But if I'm honest, I expected the random orbit action to be a little more stable. You need to get used to holding this sander to keep it level on the surface, especially at lower speeds. Having a grip attached to the front of the ROS65VC-6 is probably worth the extra cost. But not for me today.

Vacuum hose adapter included does not fit sander
I am very happy with the sander but the included VAC002 vacuum hose adapter does not fit the o-ring tube on the sander. So how am I supposed to fit a vacuum hose as advertised? Had to rate it 2 stars rather than five.

Great tool
If you get just one sander, make it this one. Works great for everything from reshaping with 60 grit to a beautiful surface with 320 grit - All without the vibration and rattling you get with a normal pad sander.

My last 2 palm sanders were Porter Cable #333. This sander seems to transmit less vibration to the hand then the Porter Cables. I just bought it so we will see how it holds up.

Received as a xmas gift. Immediately used it to help sand my cedar gazebo. I really like it. Its quiet and easy to use. And the dust bag grabs virtually all of the dust. I look forward to use it more.

Much quieter than my other sander and with less vibration, assuming you learn how to use it. While I can use the whole surface of the Older sander, the Bosch works best only using one half on the pad surface at a time. The on/off switch is a little old school but easier to use than my other sander. Makes a nice smooth surface and is comfortable to hold.

From the first time I turned it on, I was impressed. The sander worked great and I was surprised (pleasantly by how little dust escaped the filter. A nice addition to my shop.

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?
