My go to sander
Didn't take long after I found out about this that I made the purchase. I started it on one of my old 1.5 Ah batteries to see what kind of life I could expect with the lightest battery set up and was surprised by how long it lasted. With a big battery it goes as long as you'd like, and haven't had any job that used more than one 5 Ah battery. It is quiet, powerful and well balanced. The filter box works quite well at capturing dust, and nice to be able to easily attach my M18 vacuum for indoor work. The filter box is why 4 stars however, the lid doesn't stay on very securely and I have to be careful not to bump it. It hasn't been enough of a nuisance to talk to Milwaukee about, it might be the fit of the molded plastic pieces together but I wish they had put more thought into that design. If you already use M18 there isn't really a reason not to buy one. I use it instead of my corded ones at home.

Would I be able to attach a hook&loop foam pad on this and use it as a polisher?

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.
On the photo in the listing I see a charger, a battery and a bag. Are they included in the package?

BEST ANSWER: No, the 2648-20 is for the sander only
