Has good power. Holds up well even with abuse (employees!!). If needed, repair parts are readily available from factory. I've tried many others but now just have the Porter Cable!

I have many hours on one like this

CRAFTSMAN PALM SANDER

Many hours with no problems. Good power for tough sanding jobs.

I know it takes abuse because it has hit the floor many times when I rip over the power cord that is stretched between my workbench power outlets and where I am sanding.

I'm nothing short of impressed with mine. I noticed right off that its body is larger in diameter (although stubby) and takes a different grip than the palm sanders I'm used to using. Might be challenging for someone with small hands. Dust collection is pretty good with the included container and even better with my small shop vac.

The motor doesn't run wild when you don't have the sander under load, which is nice...It holds its RPM very well when you really push down into the workpiece as well. The variable speed feature is nifty although I admittedly haven't used it much yet.

No buyers remorse here. :no:
