Makita's BO5041K 5'' Variable Speed Random Orbit Sander combines power, speed and performance with improved grip and control, thanks to an innovative adjustable front handle. It features a Makita-built 3 amp motor with over-sized sealed ball-bearings for durability. The variable speed control dial lets the user adjust the orbital speed from 4,000 to 12,000 OPM. The large two-finger trigger switch features a lock-on button for continuous use over long periods. The 1/8'' random orbit action delivers smooth sanding and a swirl-free finish, with a pad control system for controlled pad speed upon start-up. The adjustable front handle aids sanding in corners and confined areas, while ergonomic rubberized handles improve comfort and control. The BO5041K accepts 5'' diameter eight-hole hook-and-loop abrasives, and has an efficient through-the-pad dust collection system. Just connect your vacuum to the built-in vacuum port adapter to enjoy a cleaner workshop.

Works great
I bought this sander for my nephew. He didn’t have an orbital sander but enjoys woodworking. He loves the extra handle. It really works well sanding vertical surfaces. My nephew is carrying on the tradition of woodworking in our family. I have the exact same sander kit and have used it on many projects. I like Makita products. They perform very well.

Powerful and adjustable, good dust collection
This is my first dust extracting sander and I am impressed with how much dust it manages to collect. It has plenty of power -being able to dial it back is a plus. The case has almost enough room to store a stack of disks but it is a fight to close it with out the cord getting in the way.

Have had issues with rotation stopping under light pressure on new model sanders. Does Makita have the same problem?
