Makita's 5-in. Random Orbit Sander (model BO5031K) features a variable speed control dial and large 1/8-in. random orbit action. The rubberized palm grip offers better control of the tool. The sander also features a pad control system for controlled pad speed upon start-up with a 3 AMP motor for continuous operation. A dust-sealed switch minimizes dust contamination and a through-the-pad dust collection system provides a cleaner work environment. The sander uses a quick-change 5-in. eight-hole hook-and-loop abrasive paper.
