With a larger body than Rockwell's cordless model, this corded version doesn't vibrate nearly as much, and it's nearly as "quiet" with a top sound level of 95dB.…
(That's loud enough you'll still need hearing protection, but it's better than most other multi-tools.) It comes with two sanding pads (and matching sheets): the first is the triangular-shaped one common to all these tools, and the second is a bullet-shaped pad that lets you get in tighter and closer for hard-to-read areas. Its 1-1/8" diameter dust port lets you suck up dust nicely when you hook up a shop vacuum. But its blow-molded plastic case is our least favorite because you have to remove any attachment from the tool to get it to fit, and the 10'-long cord is a real challenge to get back in place.
