Tools News - Makita Variable-speed Random Orbit Sander


Makita recently released its new 5” Random Orbit Sander (model  BO5031K).  The new sander features a variable speed control dial (4,000 - 12,000 OPM) and large 1/8” random orbit action for fast and smooth sanding, as well as a rubberized palm grip for better control.  It is ideal for wood workers and finish carpenters who require a great sander.

The new finishing sander features a pad control system for controlled pad speed upon start-up, with a powerful 3-AMP motor for continuous operation and oversized sealed ball-bearing construction for longer tool life.  In addition, the BO5031K has a variable speed control dial (4,000 - 12,000 OPM) to match the sanding speed to the material.
