Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great finish sander Great little finish sander. This is not for initial sanding, use a random orbit sander first. Seems well made so far.

Why do you call it a 1/4 in. sheet sander? 1/4 inch thick sandpaper is hard to find, and 1/4 inch square sandpaper is for extremely tiny projects. It's a 1/4 sheet sander.
Asked by: Snickelfritz

I am finishing a maple floor that was buried with Luan and Vinyl. Is this powerful enough to get the edge for me where the floor sander can't? most of the finish is gone off of the original floor.
Asked by: VTWood
The GSS20-40 Orbital Finishing Sander does not have enough power for floor sanding. We recommend the 3725DEVS instead. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

dose it come with a shop vacuum adapter or can you buy one for it
Asked by: ed
Hi Ed, yes it has what I guess is the Bosch Standard connector. I have another Bosch Sander and I have a Bosch Shop-Vac hose. this little sander fits right onto the hose with the permanent connector which is where the shown dust collector attaches. Hope this helps!
