Rated 3 out of 5 by from No power Unfortunately, the sander would stop spinning with any slight pressure on it. I bought it to remove paint from deck rails, so I had to put some pressure in order to hold it vertically to the rails. I bought another brand from another store, and it worked much better. I was disappointed that the Ryobi was so weak, as I use other Ryobi tools that have worked fine for a long time. I had to return this Ryobi sander however.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does not fit standard 1-1/4" vacuum hoses I bought this a few days ago thinking that I could connect it to my shop vacuum through a 2-1/2" to 1-1/4" hose adapter. (See page 8 of the Operators Manual). I discovered that the adapter or any of our vacuum hoses will not work because the hole for the hose is 1-1/8" in diameter. Forcing a 1-1/4" fitting in would break the plastic housing. I was however able to make it work by inserting part of a 4" section of 3/4" ID PVC pipe into the adapter and wrapping the other end with some friction tape and inserting that into the sander. The 3/4" pipe section restricts the air flow when compared to the 1-1/4" I was hoping for but the dust collection is still good enough. Other than that, it is working OK for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sander Nice power, easy to use, good results. Easy to change sanding discs. The sawdust collection bag was effective, even if slightly leaky.

Can I use this to Sand a door frame or should I purchase a palm sander?

Asked by: DIYLady
You can, but since it is a rotating sander, it may wonder away on you, unlike the pal sander.

Why would my sander start sanding at three or more times faster? I can hardly hold on to it.....

Why would my sander start sanding at three or more times faster? I can hardly hold on to it.....
Asked by: Cofo
The amount of pressure will help you hold on to it, also the grit of the pads that you are using affects how hard it grips the work area.

Looking for parts to think 2.6 amo corded sander
Asked by: Yankee19
Hello yankee19. If you need parts to fix it, you need to contact ryobi. Just remember, by the time you get the part, pay for it and the shipping, and put in the effort to repair it, you can buy a new one. Or if you want, you can spend a bit more and get a much better sander, like a Makita.
