Orbit sander: Makita
March 1, 2009
The new 5-inch Random Orbit Sander (model BO5030K) features 12,000 OPM and large 1/8 inch random orbit action for fast and smooth sanding, as well as a rubberized palm grip for better control. It is ideal for wood workers and finish carpenters who require a best-in-class sander. The new finishing sander has a pad control system for controlled pad speed upon start-up, with a 3-amp motor for continuous operation and 12,000 OPM for fast and smooth sanding. In addition, the sander has oversized sealed ball-bearing construction for longer tool life. The dust-sealed switch minimizes dust contamination and increases durability. The efficient through-the-pad dust collection system helps provide a cleaner work environment, while the fabric dust bag has an extra wide mouth for faster disposal. The BO5030K uses quick-change 5-inch eight-hole hook-and-loop abrasive paper. The model includes abrasive paper, dust bag, and tool case.
