Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gerry N Have had it for 18 months and have put in through hours and hours of work. Just amazing how it performs over other brands I used

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sander for the price You just can't get a better sander with these features for this price. There are sanders out there with the same features as this though not all in one like this. Brands like DeWalt, Bosch, Makita, etc are very well respected but you won't get their premium models for $100. The 12' cord has just about aliminated extension cords and the dust bag is easy to install and remove and both size vacuum hoses will fit this thing. Soft start feature and dual patterns will adapt to any conditions. The free LIFETIME service agreement when you register is a no brainer. Regular wear items like brushes are even covered. This will last you a lifetime, Ridgid will make sure of that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dead sander My sander quit after 1 hr of use ... so much for Ridgid quality! The package of discs outlasted the sander! Home Depot doesn't stock the same range of hook and sand abrasive disks for the 6" that they do for the 5". You can't get 40 grit paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2610 but not 2611 If you can find a 2610 (made in Germany) it is a beast. I could not get one in the HD store but I was able to order one from HD Canada via the 1-800 number. The 2610 is fantastic. Agressive, heavy and a solid sander. It is the first RAS that I have had that I cannot hold against my skin or it will sand the skin down. Yikes! I told my wife she now has competition. :) Bottom line is that if you can find a 2610, grab it. TC

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought to sand a 30ft sail boat Works as it should. Minimal selection on grits available. Local replacement pads only found at HD. Wife said it was a little heavy to sand over head. Works good on wood and epoxy too. I've used both sizes of vacuum attachment. 1 1/4" gives more flexibility In movement but acoustically, high pitch used with my shop vac. 2 1/2" high pitch is gone but a bit bulky with my setup. Overall good sander.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Deck Sander Powered through an 1100 sq ft deck in no time. Has oscillating 1/8” (low impact) or 1/4” (High impact) options. 6” Diameter perfectly matches 5/4 x 6” decking. This device is purpose built. Do not sand large surface areas with a smaller sander.

Where can one buy 6" orbital sandpaper for this machine? It is not listed on the Homedepot.ca website. No point in buying it without an ample supply of orbital sandpaper.  

Asked by: Boatman
120 and 80 grit are listed but use "Diablo" as the search term. It does not show up under "sandpaper".
