Makita's new 5" Random Orbit Sander (model BO5041K) features more power and an adjustable front handle for improved user comfort and control. Builder News Magazine tried it out and, based on the review in their October 2010 issue, they clearly liked what they saw.
The reviewer, Art Waldal, is a custom home builder in Vancouver, WA, with 30 years in the business. He particularly liked the adjustable handle, variable speed control, and dust collection. He called the BO5041 a "sweet little orbital sander" and declared that it "has a permanent place in my shop." Go here to read the entire review: http://bnmag.com/tool-review/3177-packing-power
