Lightweight & Powerful Dec 27 2011
By Rapscallion - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I purchased this disc sander to strip an older home of about 50 years of paint. It performed flawlessly. The light weight and trigger lock made it very comfortable to use overhead on the tongue & groove soffit. The unit was operated for many hours in 100+ degree weather, subjected to copious amounts of dust and debris, and shows no signs of slowing down. The rubber inserts also make for comfortable use.

I did want to point out another option to the sanding discs. What I learned from a contractor many years ago was to just purchase a roll of sandpaper used for floor sanding machines. I bought a roll of 8" X 50yds sandpaper and used a lid to mark and cut out the discs myself. Not only was this enough to do the entire house, but it also took care of the sanding blocks. I've still got some left. Just spray the discs with a pressure sensitive adhesive, wait a minute and pop them onto the sander.

Light, powerful and effective Sept. 29 2010
By Tennis4Ever - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Very effective in removing paint from my house exterior -- is light and powerful, stayed cool even after extended use.

Used with 7" sanding pads instead of 5" pads. The 5" pads were not nearly as effective as the 7" pads, plus the Makita variety were fairly expensive and hard to find. My only two issues is (1) there is no spindle lock to assist in removing 3rd-party accessories (i.e., Alpha Pro Tools flexible loop & hook backer pad), and (2) doesn't use the standard 5/8" arbor (is 1/4"). The 5" and 7" abrasive pads from Home Depot have a 5/8" hole which makes it tricky to center on the Makita GV5010.

I had originally purchased a couple of cheap angle grinders from Harbor Freight and found that they were way too heavy for extended use, plus they got really hot. Makita was definitely worth the extra $$$ for me.

Makita for stripping paint from wood siding Sept. 4 2010
By Mr. X - Published on Amazon.com
I really don't know too much about disc sanders as this is my first, but have experience with Makita tools and orbital sanders. This disc sander seems to represent the Makita standard of dependable, useful ergonomics and effectiveness for my intended purpose - removing paint from wood siding. I use the Makita along with this system: [...]

When I use the sander and dust collection system I have to be very attentive because the Makita is powerful enough that with a coarse girt disc could take off more wood than anticipated. In short, it has the power to do the job effectively and has saved me countless numbers of hours vs. using a manual scraper, putty knife, or orbital sander. So far, the GV5010 has not slowed down due to any pressure I exert, showed any hesitancy in rotating and is compact enough that it doesn't overwhelm my hands, or arms. This is after a good 24 hours of use. I also bet my wife (110 lbs) could probably operate the combo. as effectively as I do. I like the machine a lot and it fits perfectly with the afore-mentioned system alleviating inhaling paint, or the dreaded cleanup of paint dust.

Great sander Sept. 23 2011
By Jack L. Loe - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is one great sander. I use it for taking old paint off my house. I first became familiar with Makita when I borrowed my neighbor's older model. I thought I would wear it out but it wore me out so to speak. I would recommend this sander. For the money you can't go wrong.

Makita GV5010 Oct. 20 2011
By chuck - Published on Amazon.com

I purchased this sander with the intention of using to polish walls that I applied venetian plaster and wax to. For that purpose, it performed flawlessly.
The Makita is very balanced and powerful and for the price, a very nice tool. I do not know how it would perform for sanding but it has a very high speed and
for the job I needed done, I had no complaints.
