Another great Ryobi One+ product with nice extras
on 18 January 2014
I bought this Ryobi sander as I needed to sand down a desk top for re-varnishing. I initially thought I'd get a B&Q Mouse but the number of poor reviews reporting motor failures put me off. I then found this product which was a couple of quid cheaper, seeing as I already have a couple of Ryobi's One+ tools I've got several battery packs so it was a very cheap solution to my problem.
I thought it might feel a bit lacking in power being battery powered but it was fantastic, got the job done quickly, and once varnished the results were really impressive. I can't comment on durability because I've only used it for one job but it feels as solid as the rest of the Ryobi range and I've not had a failure with their power tools yet.
I bought a hand full of extra sanding pads but it actually came with three different grade polishing pads and two sanding pads, which is not mentioned anywhere on the item description.
