Sanded a painted door with a 5Ah and 2Ah battery
I really enjoy using this for many small projects. I just sanded a painted cedar door with 2 batteries. I do think I would need a larger battery or the fast charger to keep going. Yes it’s a little messy, but really what were you expecting? I find it picks up plenty and the rest blows away if outdoors. I think it’s a great tool to own.

I like the Milwaukee Orbit sander with one huge exception. The dust container keeps falling off. It stayed on initially, but after emptying the container, it will not stay on the sander. Frustrating!

Dust bin cover
As a portable sander it’s a great tool. Only problem is the dust bin cover won’t stay on. It’s to easy to knock the cover off. Dumping saw dust all over the place.

right weight for sanding
I would recommend this sander because it is strong and nicely balanced. Also the on/off buttons ate very easy to use. An extra battery would be good if you are doing a big sanding job.The battery charger has two different ports. It eliminates a second charger .Overall it is a very good sander.

M18 is the way to go!
This sander works very well. Smooth and powerful performance. Very similar to the corded version but more versatile as it can go anywhere. Battery life is better than I had anticipated. I highly recommend this tool!

Great tool. Runs well on 5ah battery. I’ve used it for trimming new construction where not having a cord tangleing up is wonderful. Works as well as my ridged corded sander as far as power and material removal goes. As others have said the dust lid needs improvement as it gets nicked off to easily but I’ve still found it usable as is. I will say it does and excellent job of sucking up its dust. While sanding casing over my head it’s surprising how little dust gets in my face.

This thing is awesome
I have used the M18 sander on many little projects around the house. The thing I like the most about it is the lack of a cord. I also own the 2 gallon M18 vacuum but have trouble connecting the sander to it. I don’t know if I’m just missing something or if they don’t actually mate up.

The sander is ok. But the dust filter system is awful! The cover won't stay closed. I was extremely disappointed.

M T on Jun 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is a standard 8 hole hook and loop pad, no reason you couldn't swap the Velcro pad assembly out for another one that is more appropriate as well, there are instructions in the manual for bolting on another pad.

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.
