Love it!!
This sander is perfect for my needs! I’m a start-up woodworking business & I’m building a surplus of products & this machine is expediting the process beautifully. I couldn’t be happier with its performance.

Feels solid and smooth. Love the on/off location and style. My aging hands struggle with the switches I’ve used on other sanders. Also love that it’s easy to clean out!

Very happy with it so far. Electrical cord could be longer but, other than that, great product!

Surprisingly poor quality
I have purchased several Bosch power tools over the past year and they have performed flawlessly. So I was surprised at the poor quality of the hook and loop pad on this sander. Sanding discs fly off easily and often. The pad just isn’t durable.

I recently purchased this tool. It is reasonably priced, very easy to use, fairly quiet relative to other power tools, and the sanding function works very well -- hence 4 stars. I took away one star because the dust collecting function is not working well; I checked the manual to make sure I had operated the tool correctly and I had. I am having difficulty in my market finding discs with desired grit sizes, no dealer inventories the full range of grit sizes and some grits I am unable to find -- this limits the functionality of this tool.

Great Tool
Been using an HF ROS for 5+ years. It finally dies after vibrating my hand to death along with regular over heating. Bought this Bosch unit and have been amazed at the comfort in using it. Vibrations well controlled - I can hold it on my hand and sand small pieces easily. Nice fit in hand and comfortable feel doing large surfaces. Much quieter than other models. Self contained dust collection is okay, connection to vacuum is excellent.

So easy to use
I bought this a few days ago for project where we replaced some damaged wallboard along the bottom of the wall. I am a senior female & a novice but read instructions & was easily able to use this sander. I appreciated its light weight & the filter worked very well- almost no dust. I did wear a mask. Dust trap was easy to clean. Thank you - glad I found this sander.

Best 5in orbital sander for the money.
I purchase ros20vs about 16 months ago, i have burn through little over 350+ disc between 60grit to 1200grit. Used on gelcoat and fiber glass and wood. This has been the best 5in orbital sander I've ever owned. It's not perfect but for the money you can not beat it. I'm still on the same backing pad, but ordering new one because of a mistake I made damage it. Live in Florida, so the sander has been exposed to high Temps of 98deg running for hours. High humidity, with salt in the air. Abrasive Kevlar and fiberglass, fine gelcoat dust, and even wet sanding (I'm pretty sure it's not ment for wet sanding, but it's holding up like a champ

Pros:
1. good range of adjustable speeds.
2.Durable, I have abused it hard.
3.Strong backing pad H&L
4.Ergonomically easy to use for hours
5.Dust collection, supper strong self vacuum.

Cons:
1.Breaking system could be stronger. Or have an option to adjust it.
2.Replacment filters make you buy the whole assembly instead of just the filter and cost 20.00 way over price.
3.Filter adhesive is weak, lost two filter wile trying to clean it..
4. Should come with replacement o-ring seal for filter and hose, does not last long.

In short I will buy it again when the time comes..

Wonderful sander
This sander was bought to replace my original Bosch sander that I bought refurbished. It was a great sander so when it quit, there was no doubt what brand I would look for. Does a great job at sanding and collecting dust.

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?

BEST ANSWER: The Height is 6 inches.
