I also have an older model porter cable random orbit sander with a 5" sanding pad, and find that it works much better for most of my projects. So, I've ordered one to replace the 6" pad that comes with this newer model. In my opinion, these are the best random orbit sanders on the market, especially for avid woodworkers.

Absolutely the BEST in the market!!! This is my 2nd PC Sander. Someone stole my 12 year old, I just HAD to replace her!! LOVE THIS SANDER!!!!
I probably put thousands of hours on my previous PC Sander! Never one problem encountered! Someone stole my 10-15 year old model, I loved the convenience of the hook n loop system! As a Professional Hobbiest Woodworker, this is by far the best sander I have ever used! Working with hardwoods or softwoods, you just can't beat the reliable power and advantage of quick change velcro grit papers to obtain a hand rubbed finish! This machine easily cut my sanding time in half thanks to the power of this sander! I know of no other brand that could possibly compare, ( (I have tested others, and stored them away) I remain amazed I didn't wear my old one out as I really worked her hard!!! Would NEVER BUY any other brand! Porter Cable is the ULTIMATE BEST!!! I have no doubts my new replacement will give me many more years of enjoyment with my love of woodworking!!! Karen, KAYBECK DESIGNS Estab 1991. I design and scroll or build Custom Wood Creations with Artwork and Decorative Painting. The fact I can get a perfectly smooth piece of work with Zero burrs, suitable for hand brushwork artwork pieces, including Personalization of Hand Lettering, makes the PC my #1 go-to tool. Only the most intricate scroll pieces require any hand sanding, as my PC DOES IT ALL!!! I will likely buy an extra unit, just in case this model could one day be no longer made. That way, I will have my favorite too to last me the rest of my days as a woodworker!!! A++++++ MACHINE!!!!!
The new design model with buffing capability is a plus, as now I can safely buff oxidation off of my RED Bass boat without fear of damage to paint.
**** Hope you post my comment--- ***More woodworkers need to know just how good the Porter Cable Random Orbital Sander is!!!!
Would happily share a photo gallery of some of my original pieces if anyone would like to see a sampling of the capabilities of this sander.
I cannot thank you enough for keeping this sander on the market! I was heartbroken when I discovered the theft of my old one!!!

Respected brand
I have used the older model of this sander for sixteen years. It was a great sander but could no longer be repaired. My hope is that this model can live up to that standard.

Not all it should be.
Using sander to remove paint from boat hull. The polisher works great, the sanding disk was damaged when I got it and broke after two discs. Threads were stripped and it won't stay on the machine.

Great Sander
I bought this sander to sand down the fascia boards on my house. I pressure washed the fascia boards and then hit them with 40 grit with this sander doing the grunt work. Worked great. Next up is the teak patio table that I will use 120 grit paper to restore color before putting on a protective stain.

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 120 days.
