Rated 2 out of 5 by from Got 1 year out of it Well maybe 14months of use before failing. Seems the random orbit part stopped working and now it just spins @ high rpms kinda wierd. I’ll have to check and see if its under warranty. Worked good up untill that fail point. Plenty of power. Burns through 2.0 batteries quick so i was always using the 5.0. Works with shop vac connected. Dust collecting extension collet could be designed alot better. Crack the second day of use and is just awkward the way it goes from the round shop vac connection the this square-ish weak connection to the tool. Should be more durable because the extensions has to support the weight of the vac hose which it does not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally awesome orbital sander!!! Another great tool from Milwaukee. My wife and I started doing furniture rehab projects a few years ago and this orbital sander has been a tool we use all the time to prep surfaces for painting or staining. We typically the sander with a 5.0 battery and it runs for about 30-45 minutes before needing a fresh brick. Make sure to use a compressor to lightly clean out the sander at the end of the day!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A+ sander. Poor dust collector. I have almost the complete line-up of M18 tools. Making the switch has been spendy but also easy to do since I'm so pleased with all the M18 tools. This sander is the only one I am having a problem with. The sanding features alone are great. But the dust collector falls off or the lid on the container pops off which erupts into a huge cloud of dust. Very frustrating. Also, the sanding pad has it's own unique attachment holes so DeWalt pads or Makita pads don't work. I can't seem to find a Milwaukee replacement sanding pad at any retailer online or in person. So I now have a tool I cannot use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This thing is awesome I have used the M18 sander on many little projects around the house. The thing I like the most about it is the lack of a cord. I also own the 2 gallon M18 vacuum but have trouble connecting the sander to it. I don’t know if I’m just missing something or if they don’t actually mate up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Second review I already did a review on this but felt I needed to do another one. After using it for a while I find it not really comfortable to hold on to. It's bulky and too big to fit my hand, and I have big hands. It goes through a 5.0 battery in about 15-20 minutes. The dust collector falls off no matter what you do, although I don't think you need it anyways. It is still a good tool, but I think it ranks lower than I originally thought.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great multi-purpose sander Corded sanding power without needing to run cords. Runs well, the mulit-fit vacuum fitting is nice. Its definitely a battery hog if you're stripping finish, but that's not unexpected. I seemed to come close to the promised 35 minutes with a 3 amp hour battery, even though it's well used. Looking forward to all the uses I'll find for this thing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Faulty design The sander itself works well but the dust collection lid keeps popping off blowing fine dust everywhere. You will need to attach it to a vacuum or use a zip tie or tape to keep the dust collection lid sealed. It is so bad that I am confused how such a glaring design flaw made it out the door. Milwaukee products are usually rock solid. This one is either an exception or a sign of things to come. Bottom line is don't buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bring on the V2 fuel version! Scoring a 3. Very handy tool but so grabby and leaves a lot of swirlies. The sanding action of this tool is similar to some of the earliest electric/non air lowered 5” orbitals I used in the 90’s… very aggressive. Fine for heavy removal with 60-80grit… yet, poor for final finish/ finer grits. Dust catcher really works. Major improvement over leaky dusty cloth dust bags of other sanders. Not easy to open and close but catches dust! The tool Gobbles up 5ah batteries which is the largest you can mount with catcher in place. Lets have that higher efficiency fuel version Milwaukee!
