This sander from VonHaus has a powerful 430 Watt motor, and being a random orbital sander it’s up to more than a standard orbital sander, and you’ll find it useful as a polisher as well as straightforward sander. Best of all, this is all backed by a 24 month warranty.
This sander has a 2-meter power cable, which though restrictive, allows you some mobility as you work. It’s fair to say that an extension lead might be a useful accessory if you do invest in this! The 125mm diameter sanding surface ensures quick operation especially on large surfaces. Working in conjunction with this large sanding surface is an adjustable speed control, starting at 6000 rpm and going up to 13000 rpm, this makes it adaptable to different surfaces and applications.
The lock on switch ensures continuous use of the sander, so you don’t need to hold the switch down for the entire time you work, and without doubt that’s a relief for the hands! Another unique advantage to the round sanding sheet is that it leaves the work itself free of sanding marks, and thus a high quality even finish is given.
The Velcro backed base pad offers a quick and easy sheet change over, with no faffing around with clips to endure, just slap it on and tear it off. The base pad design also helps in reducing heating even after extended use of the sander. On the downside velco sanding pads are a slightly more expensive solution than other market alternatives, however for the convenience they bring we think it’s well worth it.
To ensure user comfort this tool also enables you work with one hand thus freeing the other for other uses or simply to rest. The fully adjustable front handle also helps you be flexible in your grip when operating the tool, and the dust extraction port and collection bag ensures you have a both a visible work surface and a clean working environment.

The orbital sander industry gets better every year, and the competition is fierce, but if you want a powerful model that performs well in a variety of scenarios then this will certainly deliver. It’s by no means perfect, but for the price it’s definitely performs above and beyond expectations.
