Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally awesome orbital sander!!! Another great tool from Milwaukee. My wife and I started doing furniture rehab projects a few years ago and this orbital sander has been a tool we use all the time to prep surfaces for painting or staining. We typically the sander with a 5.0 battery and it runs for about 30-45 minutes before needing a fresh brick. Make sure to use a compressor to lightly clean out the sander at the end of the day!!

I wanted a reliable cordless sander and was pretty sure the Milwaukee brand would not disappoint. I have used it only a handful of times as of writing this review, but it has been acceptable..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kind of odd but oddly ergonomic Unboxing this little M18 sander gave me the first glimpse of the vacuum / dust trap assembly. The odd shape and fit with the battery sandwiched between the body of the sander and the dust trap just added to the mystery. The vacuum attachment is pretty straight forward but I had work to do, that's why I bought it. The enclosed 3.0 battery was charging so I grabbed a 5.0 off the shelf and it slid right in the pocket and we went right to work. The adjustable speed is a welcome addition to palm sanding and the 5 amp battery provided plenty of power to sand and refinish the door I was working on. Wound up emptying the dust collector several times so the Packout vacuum is next on the list but the odd shape of the assembly just wouldn't get out of my head, however running this sander for about an hour straight stripping and finishing that door taught me that an odd profile doesn't hinder balance and feel. Face it, the dust collector looks like the buckhead of the Apollo moon lander but it's not in the way and just plain works. Now the old Porter Cable will get retired and an M18 vacuum will be getting ordered pretty quick. Definitely recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Burns through battery fast and is weighted a little awkward... Burns through battery fast and is weighted a little awkward depending on the battery size used, but all in all a good sander for about $100

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For my purposes, this is the perfect tool. I haven’t really used the filter attachment much but this perfectly connects to vacuum hose which is all I care about.

Why is there no M18 finish sander?

Why is there no M18 finish sander?
Asked by: Yangorang
M18 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless 5 in. Random Orbit Sander is a finishing sander, to my understanding all orbit sanders are for wood finishing using a High grit count of 120 or higher.

Are you planning a Fuel version of this to address the issues around power and performance?

Are you planning a Fuel version of this to address the issues around power and performance?
Asked by: Rah
If you’re asking a question in regards the future planning of Milwaukee tools , I suggest you contact them directly. If you’re wondering about the performance of the tool, I submit the following. Over the last few years I’ve converted all my Milwaukee electric tools to battery operated. This was due to the lack of electric plugs on job site. As it relates to performance, Milwaukee tools have never let us down on the job site and are superior to others. Great choice of battery operated tools.

Just purchased this sander and tried using it. It seems as though no matter what speed I select the sander barely spins and does not spin at all when I apply pressure. Am I doing something wrong?

Asked by: martinjkozak
A random orbital sander moves back and forth and in a circular motion. As a result of the two separate motions, it leaves less of a swirl pattern on the wood. You will not notice a spinning of sander pad as you would see with an orbital sander. If you are at all unsatisfied with the performance of this tool please reach out to customer service at 1-877-948-2360.

Does this sander come with any kind of battery at all of do you only get the sander and it won’t work unless you buy a battery for it

Asked by: Maxence
Hi Maxence, this sander requires an Milwaukee M18 battery to operate. Model 2648-21 available on homedepot.ca includes this sander, a battery and charger. This might be a better option for you. This sander is part of our M18 system featuring 200+ tools and growing.

Can this orbit sander be used to sand down high spots on wood subfloor for flooring installs

Asked by: Hector15
I have use mine as for now in drywall and wood finishing surfaces and it works great, also sanding heavy textures in walls and ceilings. I would recommend a different sander for that element.

How cam I buy sandpaper for this Random Orbit Sander ???

I’d like to be able to purchase on line
Asked by: Don
I was not able to buy correctly configured sanding pads at the store. They only sold the Diablo pads, whose holes do not match those of the sander. Because they don’t match The suction of the vacuum through the pad did not work well at all. I was able to find 5 inch pads on the Internet had a very good price
