DeWalt D26453K Orbital Sanders
The D26453K random orbital sander from DeWalt is one of the best selling handheld power sanders on the market today, and for good reason. It is a heavy duty sander that can stand up to professional jobs, but is easy enough to use for the everyday handyman.
This solidly built machine has a powerful 3 amp motor, and while it is not heavy, you can certainly feel the heft in your hand. The variable speeds range from 7000-12000 RPM, which give you the versatility to do heavy material removal or give your project a fine finish. There are 8 holes in the sanding pad that are used for dust collection, which is provided via an on-board dustbag or a vacuum attachment. As with all orbital sanders, a sander hooked up to a vacuum hose will collect dust better than using the dustbag. However it is worth mentioning that if hooking this sander to a vacuum hose is not an option for you, the on-board dust collection is one of the best you will find. The dustbag is also easy to clean.
The D26453K performs how you would expect a DeWalt machine to. It handles any sanding job you can think of with ease. The ergonomic rubber grips and light weight make it easy to use and control for several hours if need be, or even use upside-down. There is very little vibration, which DeWalt claims is due to a Dual-plane counter-balanced fan. Overheating is also not a problem with this model, and changing sanding disks is simple with the hook and loop design.
This sander also comes with a hard carrying case, which has plenty of room for extra sanding disks. It comes with a 3-year warranty, but with the durable dust sealed construction, you probably will not need it. All in all, this tool is a must have for a craftsman of any skill level. There is no job too big or small for the D26453K, and it is a great value for the price.
