Random Orbital Sander - 5" - 3 A - 12,000 OPM is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 85.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just another sander Had a previous craftsman sander that still works but the vibration after long jobs makes the tool not worth keeping...bought a VS Dewalt sander that was a great improvement...few years later craftsman has updated the sander to be a Dewalt clone...(craftsman,B&D, Porter Cable, Dewalt all now owned by B&D) minus the Variable Speed...this newest version of the craftsman sander is a much better tool. Lots of power...minimal hand irritating vibration...and when on sale a bargain for the cost and performance...liked it so much I went out and bought another...one for 80 grit...one for 120 grit [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy Almost all of my power tools are DeWalt and I have had good luck with them. I went to the store to replace an old B&D orbital sander that shredded it’s hook and loop pad, and I planned on buying the DeWalt. This model was right next to it and is identical in almost every way, for $10 less. I don’t mean like cheap tool stores show you the specs side by side, this actually IS the same sander. The parts are obviously all the same. This thing is actually made of the same parts in the same factory. Overall it is comfortable to hold, has good power, the dust collector stays on well and locks in place, but it is a little loud. Vibration is well absorbed, and it just feels like a solid unit. I expect it to last with my occasionally heavy use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value I am a cabinetmaker, so I use this tool every day. It was a top choice by fine Woodworking magazine, so when my porter cable finally died I chose the craftsman, even though I never buy that brand. Attached to a shopvac, it cuts faster with less dust than my previous- and more expensive- porter cable and Bosch sanders. Handles well, switch a little awkward, comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Sander - Here is Dust Collection Info I collect Craftsman like a kid does Pokemon. But my OCD set me on a mission to get this dust collection mystery solved. Moistly old guys complaining online about cutting and modifying stuff. Heres how this works; Buy the DeWalt DWV9000. Remove tip of small shop hose - the hard part you slip a crevice tool or brush onto. Mine yanked out or unscrewed (reverse thread) Reverse thread adaptor onto hose. Now it attaches to sander. You're welcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Commercial Grade? YES! I push my palm sander to its mechanical limits for work in daily usage. It's typical that I'll need to replace it once every year or two due to it breaking down under long-term heavy duty usage. I've only ever opted to purchase the most expensive brands for my shop in the past. This year, when it came time to replace a broken sander, I nervously opted for the inexpensive CRAFTSMAN. I've been using it under extreme conditions (long hours of use, countless on and offs, heavy pressure bearing down) and I have been very impressed with the CRAFTSMAN's performance. It has been just as good as, if not better than, the expensive brands I've used in the past and 30 to 40% less cost to boot. I will definitely be using this CRAFTSMAN in the future for my business needs. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I went to the store to buy the Dewalt equivalent to this Craftsman model. I literally could not find any difference other than the Dewalt came with a tote bag and cost $10 more. I could care less about the bag so I saved $10 by buying the Craftsman. Incredible tool. I'm well aware that Dewalt and Craftsman are owned by the same company, so saving money only made sense to me. Don't hesitate about getting this sander.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sander! Bought this to replace existing old Makita small sheet sander. It was an instant improvement. Very little dust and does the job in half the time. Larger dust port fits well with my Shop Vac, but so far have not needed it. The included dust bag has done it's job so far. Have used it for large projects to small soft wood with no issues. I would definitely recommend this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought the older model 10 years ago. 100% recommend. After roughly 10 years of service and countless jobs, the random orbit mechanism finally failed this week. I wasn’t easy on this thing, I didn’t drop it a lot, but it worked under heavy pressure, me leaning down on it, smashing it against edges, it worked very long hours at times, this thing was put to the test, and it passed. It is still a perfectly serviceable circular sander even now, and will be used to clean up corners and edges until it fails completely for years to come. But I’ll have no qualms about buying another soon, Craftsman made a very high quality tool here, 10/10, I’m genuinely impressed.
