Product Description

This Dewalt D26453 comes with a powerful 280W motor which is connected to a variable speed switch giving between 7,000 - 12,000 orbits per minute, providing the opportunity to achieve excellent results on a wide variety of materials and situations. The compact palm grip design, anti-slip top and body grip provides the user with comfort and control, whilst the dual-plane counter-balance fan reduces vibration and fatigue.

    Really pleased with the sander. All the qualities you would expect from DeWALT. Quite light and is very smooth. Took no time at all to do the walls and woodwork in our hall and stairs.

    I highly recommend this sander. Having struggled with a cheap Ryobi in the past this like sanding with a Rolls Royce. Amongst other jobs I've used it to effortlessly sand down the whole of a 2 bay stable in no time at all. 5 stars from me

    As a keen DIYer I buy numerous power and hand tools in the mid-range price bracket.

    Sadly I have had mixed experience of many so called top brands and feel even when spending close to £1000 on workshop tools, brand name is no guarantee of reliability.

    If you buy a drill you want it to drill and for the motor to last at least as few years.

    If you buy a sander you want it to sand and last for at least a few years.

    So down to this Dewalt sander. It may not be the dearest nor the best but it works and has done for 4 years now. Using the correct sanding discs the quality is good and it does the job I bought it for, sanding.

    Sure the on/off rocker switch is difficult to switch on or off sometimes and many is the time I’ve switched it off and put it down for the thing to still be running.

    The extractor is both weak and awkward, but for me these are niggles on any machine you buy even expensive machines.

    So if you want a reliable orbital sander and can afford the 100 quid, go for it. If you want a good extraction system and a firm on/off switch go for something else. However remember you might get a less reliable sander with a good extraction system.

    Whilst the sander itself does the job as intended, the reliability is questionable. From day one the on/off switch has no positive action and when machine is switched off it sometimes starts back up as you go to put it down or starts then stops as you switch it on. The reason for this i would guess is due to the rubber dust cover for the switch being too thick. I now switch off at the wall when not being used for a while.
    After owning the sander for 3 months the machine stopped sanding altogether but would rotate freely and would "buzz" when switched on. When sent back for repair (i should have chose the refund), i was told that a piece of debris had been "stuck in the fan mechanism, as i had only been sanding wood i can only assume it was this that they were referring to, hardly a job for which it was not intended. In short, a lot of money for a flawed design.Would not recommend.

    I do a lot of sanding and use sanders for some quite tough jobs so don't tend to buy very expensive machines. Like another reviewer here, I find you often don't get a significantly better build quality when buying a budget machine or a mid-highish end machine however, I love this!

    Its fairly quiet for a sander, with not too much vibration going through your hand and quite light so it's comfortable to use for an extended period. The dust bag although tiny is actually not too bad at collecting the dust-it fits a lot more in than you'd expect and doesn't get in the way like some. Its also very easy to attach to dust extraction, there is an inbuilt reducer so you can use hoovers or larger extractor hoses. It gives a nice finish and the variable speed allows for a nice degree of control. Also, the cable (which is rubberised and looks quite tough) is really long which I've found really useful.

    Definitely my favourite tool-I bought a green Bosch belt sander at the same time and that's got terrible build quality already nearing the end of its short life-this feels real, long-lasting quality and I think i'll replace some more tools Dewalt based on this.

    Very pleased with my dewalt sander.
    I hesitated for quite some time between this and some of the other brands.
    I went for a quality brand and because there was a 50% reduction on the RRP.
    I am very pleased. The machine is light, very responsive and has a very useful dust collector.
    My father in law has now got one eye on it!
