About this deal

Perhaps if you’re using it in the automotive industry, needing 1000 grit or higher, it may be an issue.

The Bosch ROS20VSC 5 in random orbit sander/polisher delivers fast removal and a well-blended, ultra-smooth finish, so woodworkers and finish carpenters can sand quickly and to exacting standards. The Milwaukee won the speed test but after the ~3minutes, I had to wait 20minutes or so for the vibration tingles to leave my hands.As the name suggests, the GEX 125-150 AVE can use either 125mm or 150mm sanding discs by changing the pad. Bosch's integral pad dampening system, a pad braking system, is designed to eliminate the most common complaint of random orbit sander users; swirl marks on the workpiece. The downside with this particular cannister is the way everything snaps together – it can be difficult to notice if you do or don’t have a good fit. This allowed me to test out how well the sander worked on a handful of 5 x 25-inch surfaces (each with pronounced grain) and on edges, as I’d cut a 90-degree notch into the shelves to allow them to sit alongside hanging shelves I’d already installed.

In contrast with the recently reviewed Milwaukee sander, I could sand with this for hours before noticing any detrimental effects – if any at all. If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. We purchased the Bosch 5-Inch Palm Random Orbit Sander so our expert reviewer could put it to the test at his home.

The professional blue power tools from Bosch are engineered for excellence – meeting the highest standards in speed, precision and robustness for great, professional work results. With an orbit of 4mm, its neither overly aggressive or overly fine according to the industry definitions.

On the smaller Makita, its in an awkward enough position that you need to pull your hand back a little to properly adjust, and with the Milwaukee it so stiff and awkwardly recessed you almost need a flat head screwdriver. The Power Tools Division of the Bosch Group is the world market leader for power tools and power tool accessories.Additionally, the micro-cellular backing pad is pliable to ensure a smooth, fine finish on both flat and contoured surfaces alike. However, had I known about this when I bought my Makita BO5041, I would have absolutely bought this instead – its lighter, has proper sized dust collection port built, and performs at least as well. With a comfortable soft-grip top and body design, this tool has variable-speed control from between 7,500 and 12,000 OPM to match the speed to the task.
