It is more powerful than I thought and easy enough to handle. The filter is also good. Only issue I have is the noise. The grip might be a bit big for some hands.

Good overall but the dust collector came off quite easily. Now I need a rubber band to keep it on.

Good Sander for the Price Sept. 18 2014
By Carissa Kiehart - Published on Amazon.com

Before I bought this, I was borrowing my dad's Bosch random orbit sander. Compared to the Bosch, the Skil is a dream. It runs very smoothly, and there is hardly any output of dust a the canister catches dust nicely. It's easy to clean out as well. I just hit it with some pressurized air and it was clean in minutes. The sanding discs stay on very nicely, in fact I have to pull with some pressure to get them off. I used this to sand a bookcase I was building and it took me about half the time it would have with my dad's sander.

Great little tool Nov. 16 2013
By D. Wortham - Published on Amazon.com
I've had to rebuild my porch (which is more or less just a very small freestanding deck) and I got this sander at the local big box store recently. The price is the same as Amazon and I preferred not to wait for shipping.

Having never used a power sander before, I was very pleasantly surprised with the job this tool was able to do. An experienced hand may find the pressure indicator lights to be gimmicky but I found that feature very useful. The dust collector does an amazing job too. I still wore a mask but I appreciated not being coated with wood dust to the nth degree. As I understand it, the dust port will fit a standard size vacuum cleaner but I haven't had any reason to try that.

The machine comes with three disc: a leveling disc, a fine disc and a finishing disc. If you just have a small job to do and you don't destroy the disc by running across nails or screws or something then those included disc will see you through. These are apparently industry standard so you can shop for appropriate discs at most big box stores or home improvement stores if you are new to power sanding.

The disc are very easy to put on and remove since they attach with hook and loop.

Well worth the ~$40 price to make the handrails smooth, splinter-free and rounded corners.

Limited experience; works well. Aug. 12 2012
By R. B. Ray - Published on Amazon.com
I will admit that I have very limited experience with Sanders, but my experience with this one is fairly positive.

My wife and I purchased this sander in order to do a few DIY type projects; mainly repainting an old dresser we bought off of Craigslist. The wood was extremely rough in many spots and we figured it would be quite hard to work with. My wife did all of the sanding herself, without too much trouble, and the finish came out very uniform and beautiful. The sanding took place over several days at long intervals, so far we've had no problems at all.

It may not be the best sander on the market, but for DIY projects, I'd say it's well worth the price!

Skill is a tried and true stand by american I think(?) who stay competitive with this random. So weight is a pussy excuse many times for huge money pay outs with electrical hand tools. I find most decent stuff, this tool among them of reasonable weight and so quit with the 150 dollar snobby ones already, unless you are a chic. Get your arm in order please, but I digress. This is fine and so far durable balanced well and although the collection bag is tight it may soon be lost to my old school preferences anyway. Or not., And I do not see the value in using the variable light colors to notify optimum pressure use. Sort of mickey mouse some dude in a white lab coat keeping his job, for now.. For me it's fine.
