I must firstly admit that I'm a bit of a Makita fan having bought quite a few of their tools.

This palm sander was purchased to replace a very tired old "cheap no name" machine of the same size that has come to the end of its useful working life. When first unpacked I was delighted at the solid feel of the Makita and was soon cutting lengths of sandpaper to try it out. This version of the Makita palm sander uses the flip over spring system of fastening paper which, although a bit fiddly,holds the paper securely. You also get a simple plastic tool that punches the paper so that the inbuilt dust extraction system works. This punch is extremely easy to use. The dust bag fits easily and quickly and is not obtrusive when the machine is in use.

Palm sanders of this size are extremely useful for many jobs and invaluable, for example, when sanding stairs where a larger random orbital sander has been used which cannot get into the corners. The high speed of the Makita gets the job done quickly, leaves a good finish, and is comfortable to handle. The power cord is a bit on the short side which means that you have to trail an extension lead around - but this is common with many tools of this type.

I have not awarded the machine five stars for two reasons.

Firstly: If, like me, you suffer from arthritic fingers the spring paper retaining system [whilst very effective] is a bit awkward to use. To solve this I have since bought a replacement pad for the sander [as fitted to the Makita BO4555] that uses Velcro to hold the paper in place - slightly more expensive in terms of sandpaper but easier to use.

Secondly: Palm sanders are all notorious for their ability to create dust, even when their dust extraction systems are fitted, and the Makita is no exception.

I used a Makita sander 20 odd years ago, working on a construction site in Canada. It was a brilliant machine then. I decided to buy my own for doing up my house. the Makita sander is as good if not better and a little updated from the machine I had used 20 years ago.

What a super piece of kit.
Purchased to replace a 'rubbish' Draper sander~ the spring clips gave up holding the sandpaper after about a week of heavy use.
This sander just feels right and works brilliantly. The dust collection bag really does keep dust levels down. Noise level is very low for an orbital sander and the vibration is minimal through the hand and wrist making extended use quite acceptable. Very easy to control on small work areas~ it does'nt skim away from you unexpectedly spoiling a fine finish and single handed work around tight access areas is easy. The inclusion of a jig to perforate sanding sheets is great as it allows you to cut your own from sandpaper rolls which works out much cheaper than purpose cut packs. The sandpaper spring clip holders are somewhat 'fiddly' but seem robust~ hope they retain tension for longer than my Draper.
