The Porter-Cable 382 5-inch random orbit sander is equipped with a slew of features that make it ideal for any number of DIY and professional sanding applications. Ideal for fine sanding and finishing work thanks to its random-pattern sanding that doesn’t leave swirls or gouges in the material—be it metal, wood or composite—the 382 random orbit sander provides maximum sanding speed for smooth finishes. Porter-Cable’s Controlled Finishing System allows for controllable pad speed, especially during startup. Whether you’re preparing a surface for a coat of paint or stain, smoothing seams where pieces of material meet, or removing olds coats of paint or varnish from furniture, the 382 is the lightweight yet powerful random orbit sander to get the job done.
Powerful Sander for Fine Finishing
The 382 5-inch random orbit sander is equipped with a 1.9-amp motor that is capable of 12,000 OPM, allowing you to power through sanding applications big and small to as fine a finish as you need. Accepting 5-inch 8-hole hook-and-loop sandpaper, the 382 utilizes Porter-Cable’s Controlled Finishing System to maintain controllable pad speed and minimize gouging, making for a consistent finish and extra-smooth surface upon project completion. Its sealed 100-percent ball-bearing construction makes it sturdy and durable, but its lightweight design (it weighs just 3 pounds) and dual-plane counterbalanced fan reduce user fatigue. The switch is dust-sealed to prevent dust ingestion, increasing the switch’s working lifespan and ensuring long-term use job after job.
With more than 100 years of experience producing quality and performance-driven tools, Porter-Cable is a leading manufacturer and marketer of professional-grade cordless and corded power tools, equipment, and accessories. Known for industry-changing innovation, Porter-Cable introduced the world’s first helical drive circular saw, portable band saw, and portable belt sander.

My older sander's hook and loop pad went bad (for the second time) and it costs about $25.00 including shipping for a new pad, so I decided after 7 years or so, it was time for a new sander. Wrong move - should have ordered the new pad - actually, just as soon as I finish writing this review, I'll order the replacement pad and I'll have 2 sanders!
All-in-all I can't say the newer model isn't a decent sander, just not as comfortable to use as the older model.
Porter Cable still has some good/decent for the money stuff left (just got the hand planer and router)...but I don't think that will last too long under the leadership of Black and Decker. Some stuff might as well be labeled Skil, or worse, Black and Decker! Harbor Freight might have a better offering.
