Could this be one of the finest power tools made by any manufacturer for any purpose? Yes! It is powerful, the lightest, and comfortable to operate. I highly recommend.

I own a wonderful antique house with clapboard siding on a fiercely wild northern shore, and have lived in and done mucho maintenance on two others along the coast. I've twice before ground the paint down to the wood/sticky paint on a whole house, once with a specialized paint-removal sander and once with a strong disc sander from another solid brand. This Makita disc sander is industrial strength with fewer things to break vrs. the specialized sander. It is more than a third lighter than the other solid brand's product. This makes a huge difference when you're up on ladders and staging and reaching up and down to difficult places. Given how rough, dirty and dusty heavy sanding can be, this tool still manages to achieve ergonomic excellence. Given how much time it takes to sand a whole old house, do yourself a favor: Don't mess around--get this superlative power tool.

PS: Over twenty years of trial and error, I've found 80 grit to be the best for house grinding. Rougher tears up the wood; finer makes the job very tedious.

HASH(0x9a7f32c4) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0x98e70b04) out of 5 stars 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.

Cheers,

Mr. X Northeast United States

HASH(0x98e70dbc) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0x9a163930) out of 5 stars Great sander Sept. 23 2011
By Jack L. Loe - Published on Amazon.com

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.

HASH(0x993eb2f4) out of 5 stars I see Painting contractors using this June 16 2012
By Mark Twain - Published on Amazon.com
I watched my painter a couple years ago sanding away with the older gv5000,it made easy work of window sills.So I bought the gv5010 and sanded today I sanded 8 window sills in about 2 hours,It sands off old paint with ease,you can gouge the wood so go slow at first but can command it in a few minutes. I did use 6 disks 80 grit.Stock up on disks.If I do more I will get the Velcro backer and Velcro disks.
