The first two worked great until the random orbit stopped working. The sanders then spun at a very high speed. Rigid does offer a lifetime guarantee, so I swapped them out. The first sander I had for 3 years. The second one for one week. I just got this one. All features are nice. When operating properly it is a great sander.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disks will no longer stay in place Although I've had this sander for several years, it has low mileage on it. That's because within a very short time the sanding disks stopped sticking to the loop and hook pad. I couldn't believe that it would wear out so quickly after purchase. I hate to throw away a tool but it looks like I'll have to. I'm not about to give Rigid more money for a replacement pad that should have lasted longer than a year.

The dust collection bag works relatively well as does the variable speed. The reason I did not give 5 stars is due to the bulkiness of the sander and the on/off switch. The switch is placed on the sides of the sander in an awkward spot and is recessed too far for my liking. Only time will tell if it holds up or not.

Works great, easy to use, easy to put on the sand paper I couldn't ask for anything better. Even comes with a lifetime warranty on Parts and Labor. They tried to sell me a service contract for a product that has a lifetime warranty.

    Should this ROS spin?

    Hello, I'm new to ROS's and just purchases this model. Upon plugging it in, I was surprised to see that the head of the sander doesn't spin much more then a few revolutions per minute. It does, however seem to 'vibrate' nicely. I tried it out on a piece of wood and it does seem to removing material. I just wanted to make sure that is is normal for the head of these sanders not to be rotating very quickly. Thanks for any advice! Thanks for any advice!

    My first one did this. It failed after two days (Switch stopped working). My second one spun much, much faster. It failed as well (Switch stopped working). Yours is defective.
